826 Tasting Notes
Another hotel tea, but perhaps my favorite. The strawberry is more pronounced than any other strawberry flavored tea I’ve had. It doesn’t seem artificial either. The tea (for me, at least) had just a hint of chocolate, which is a balance that seemed to be pretty good. With a bit of sugar, this is really a nice cuppa.
I am at a hotel for a conference, and Talbott Teas are what they have at the breaks. I’ve tried three of them, all flavored (they don’t seem to have non-flavored here). This one, in bag form, seems to be called “Green Tea Indulgence” but matches this description exactly. It’s fruit flavored, you can see the fruit pieces in the bag, and it’s good. It’s more flavored than green, but not a bad cup if that’s what you’re expecting.
A final note on this tea. (I still have some tea bags of it, though, so I might come back to it.) In the loose form, apparently the raspberry leaves settled or something, because the second to last cup of this tasted a bit sage-ish to me and wasn’t as good as I had come to expect. In fact, I threw out the last cup’s worth of leaves because I couldn’t bear to think about drinking it. Note to self: if I get this in loose form in the future, make sure the leaves don’t settle!
