1295 Tasting Notes
Mmmm, this is delicious iced. However, I’m a bit disappointed in it. I used almost half of my package, so around 25 grams, for 2 L, and it is weak. It’s a step above water, but I don’t think I’ll be replacing this one. It’s tasty, but come on. I’ve never used that much tea to make 2 L before and I’ve never had a tea turn out this weak. I was afraid to let it just steep forever because of what looked like hibiscus. So while I love the taste of it, it’s just not worth the money.
So I figured I should try this tea again in case I need to stock up before it disappears. However, one word comes to mind when I drink this: Forgettable.
Five minutes after I take a sip, I honestly couldn’t tell you what it tastes like. It’s good, but it’s not amazing. Not worth stocking up on, for me.
Disclaimer: I don’t like green tea or caramel popcorn >.>
That all said, I enjoyed this tea. Not enough to restock, I think, but I’m glad I tried it. It is tasty, if not a little weak. In my experience re:steeping times, less is more, so I only steeped this for four minutes instead of the recommended 5-7, which might be why it’s weak, but most people think this is kind of weak, so who knows. I’m really enjoying the maple, I love maple. I managed not to screw up the green in this cup, yay!
Overall, a tasty tea, but not worth keeping on hand for me.
Another one bites the dust…yay!
Edit: The more of this I drank, the less I liked it. It just is not my cup of tea.
I’m a bit underwhelmed. It’s tasty enough, and if I were the kind of person to have a straight black tea every morning to wake me up, I can see how this would definitely be first choice. However, I much prefer their Orange Pekoe (and not just because it reminds me of our cat). I have about a cup’s worth of leaves left, but I don’t think I’ll restock when it’s gone. Still, I did enjoy this cup…there are just too many other teas out there that I prefer.
I’m trying to drink down my stash so I feel less guilty about it, so my new rule is I have to pick something that I’m nearly out of or I haven’t tried before. I enjoyed this one, but I don’t know, the phrase that comes to mind is “not enough.” There’s not enough…something. I just don’t know what that something is. I don’t think this is one I’d want to restock.
