970 Tasting Notes
Buying the iced tea tumbler was the smartest thing I ever did! This was the tea of the day along with Bear Trap the other day, and while I went in intending to load up on Bear Trap (which, with a little bit of agave, tastes just like candy), I took a sip of this and had to try it. I am so glad I did. Hot, I found the hibiscus was too much for me, but iced….it was glorious. And while I prefer to cold steep here at him, I can totally see the merits of making the tea double strong and then icing it. The hibsicus doesn’t have nearly as much time to contemplate world (and tea) domination. This is one I can definitely see myself returning to.
I went through all of my matchas with my sister in law yesterday and gave her samples of quite a few. I also made us both a caramel apple matcha using this and Red Leaf Tea’s green apple matcha. She had hers hot while I had mine cold with vanilla soy milk….yum. Matcha lattes are amazing, I’m going to have to experiment more. I just placed an order for several of their new matchas, so keep an eye out for more reviews!
I am in love with this tea, I want to drink it all the time. I have yet to try it hot, but I’ve had it iced several times, both in store and at home. It’s just plain amazing. Juicy, juicy blueberries and a touch of tea…perfect. Definitely need a tin.
This was one of the iced TOTD’s yesterday, so I decided to give it another go. Nope, still not for me. I get a hint of watermelon flavor, but mostly it’s a too-tart apple.
I cannot get enough of this tea. I really can’t. It’s so damn good. It taste like blueberries and tea and deliciousness. The word that comes to mind every time I sip it is “round”. It tastes like a big, round blueberry. Om nom nom
This was one of the two teas of the day for today, and when I stopped in this morning, this was the only one they had ready, so I snagged two tumblers of it. You see, when the iced tea promotion started, it was a day when the office was wretchedly home 30-40 degrees C, and I had forgotten any kind of drink at home. So when I went on a tea run, I bought two of the iced tea promo tumblers to get me through the day. Now I keep them at the office. I’ve almost made friends with a couple of my coworkers and let them know that they’re welcome to use them as long as they wash them when they’re done, so these suckers have seen a lot of mileage already, and they’re not even a week old!
Anyhoo, I had this without any kind of sweetner and it wasn’t bad! I did find myself craving something sweet in it, but that’s okay. It was still a cup full of mapley goodness on its own. Definitely one I would return to.
Finally cold brewed this and it is not as amazing as I had hoped, sadly. I think hot is the way I’ll enjoy this tea the most. It’s more shortcake with strawberry.
I wasn’t expecting to like this, I’m not a huge pina colada fan. But I was happily surprised at how good it was! I cold brewed it and it got me through a few days of brutally hot temps at the office. I think I need to get more of this! The girls told me it tastes like pineapple juice and it really, really does. Yum.
I got 25 g of this and used it all to cold brew a pot of this. It was good, juicy and light, but ultimately I had to use 25 g to make a pot and it just didn’t wow me enough to be worth the amount of tea I had to use.
