808 Tasting Notes
I want to like hibiscus. I want to like it a whole lot. I love steeping it in a clear glass when the water separates into layers of deep pink and clear and it doesn’t mix up until you stir it. I like the idea of tangy. I just don’t love it in my drink. This worked for me, though, because of the cold. I just don’t know if it’d be a go to move for me.
Another tea from a family member’s stash: This was quite a surprise! I don’t particularly love chamomile or vanilla, but this combination sounded interesting. It was sweet (as you might expect), and I liked it more than I like chamomile tea or blacks flavored with vanilla. It makes me want to try their sleepytime tea with vanilla. Good tea!
I’ve been under the weather for the past several days, so I’ve not been having my favorite teas (unless I had a lot of them to spare). I’ve also been having a lot of teas at family’s houses, but my tasting notes might be off due to congestion…
On that note, this was a fun take on the Constant Comment I’m more familiar with. The tartness seemed ratcheted up, which I’m guessing is due to the green tea. I didn’t sweeten it, but if I try this one again I’m going to give that a go.
