1196 Tasting Notes

81

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.

Sick, sick, sick. It’s either allergies or the flu (though I’m leaning towards the flu). Either way, my throat was raw when I woke up this morning…my wife made me a pot of this and I feel better already.

Hope you feel better!

Have you tried their Cold911? It’s pretty good for those times when you’re sick.

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!

I hope your day got better, and that you are all right!

Yeah, we’re okay, just running in to some issues with (violent) former tenants coming on to our property and going through our mail. We’re trying to decide if it’s worth the hassle or not, as the police around here tend to be less than helpful. Where’s a mountie when you need one? :D

Complaints on record might not be effective, but good to have. Might not have results right now, but a history of any/all issues is important.

My wife tasted this iced and hit the nail on the head.

It tastes like a blue raspberry icee without the painful amounts of sugar.

Yummmmmmm. Or those rocket popsicles. I’m going to try these as popsicles.

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.

Hibiscus seems to be the least liked flavor of tea; I agree. When it’s paired with something it can be somewhat tolerable. But on its own, ICK. Guess I’ll be avoiding Tealish!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
