1239 Tasting Notes
I’m not a fan of chocolate teas, but this is delicious! There’s just enough chocolate to make it velvety, but enough other things to balance it out. I’m very happy to like this one, as I was looking for another mate to add to the collection. Give this one a try, you might be surprised!
I reached for this tea because if I have to go after another of my “flu-feeling-better” teas, I’m going to scream, but I don’t want to waste any of my favorites when I can’t really taste them properly. So I went for this, hoping the orange zest and juniper berries would do something for my flu (it’s been a week now). I was surprised at how tasty it is! Surprised and very pleased. Another winner from Tealish! It seems that if I just avoid anything with hibiscus in it, their teas are pretty good! It doesn’t taste medicinal like a lot of herbals do and the spices in it keep it different enough to keep my interest.
Backlogging from yesterday. Used up the last of this to help me survive wandering Kensington with the inlaws. We stopped in the Blue Banana Market and were very pleased to discover a little tea section, complete with a few Harney & Sons teas! None of this, however, which made me very sad. It does wonders for my throat through this illness that will not die. We placed an order with H&S 11 days ago and have yet to hear anything from them, so I’m assuming it has not shipped yet, which is really, really disappointing. To the point that I think this might be our only order from them. This tea is amazing, but the cinnamon chai from DT is amazing too, and with much better customer service. International shipping takes forever as it is, there’s no reason to add another week to the process, especially when the only difference is the addition of a customs form.
Anyway, end rant, I love this tea, I’m just less than pleased with the company.
