1196 Tasting Notes
So…here it is. I ran out of Dayquil today and I was miserable. I made a cup of this and I really am feeling better…I can breathe and my throat isn’t hurting as much and I feel less like death.
That all being said, I had to treat this like medicine, I could not stand the taste. My tastebuds could be off or it could be the fact that I’ve got chicken soup, bravissimo, and this in front of me and I’m switching between the three, but I found very little pleasure in the taste.
But hey, if it makes me feel better, who cares? It just won’t be one I drink when I’m not sick. The rating is based solely on how it made me feel so much better, and has nothing to do with taste.
Having a bit of a crap day, including trying to decide if I need to call the cops or not, and I definitely needed something to wake me up and be soothing. This fit the bill beautifully. It’s smooth and not bitter at all. I only let it steep for 2 minutes and I’m in heaven. The vanilla and caramel and grenadine are all very present…I am very happy with this tea! Yay Tealish! You didn’t ruin this with hibiscus!
Thwarted again by hibiscus. First few sips were nice enough, peachy with hibicus. But then I started eating one of my blueberry brown sugar flax cookies with it and all I could taste was the hibiscus. Not gonna rate it right now and will retry later but…I’m starting to think that if you’re not a hibiscus fan, tealish may not be for you. Everything with hibiscus in it for me has been overwhelming to the point that all I taste is the hibiscus.
