28 Tasting Notes
Playing catch-up from this weekend – I finally got around to having a couple of these! One with honey (at the long-standing suggestion of my roommate) and one without anything added to it (after sipping off my favorite persons’). The honey adds a nice sweet touch – not too overpowering, but I only get the faintest hint of tea. The plain black tea latte (iced) lets the tea come through a little more, but still is cool creamy smooth goodness thanks to the milk. A very nice summer drink indeed! :D
bagged, not loose. not ideal, i know, but decent for at work. squirt of honey, splash of milk. not quite as strong or spicy as i’d expected, buuut maybe that’s my fault. a nice change from my usual afternoon green tea fix…
Is this what they offer you at your appt? If so, I love this stuff! Just was there for a haircut and though the smell of Aveda products (or the chair massage) may have contributed to my sudden calm, their tea is just sweet enough & just refreshing enough to make me feel relaxed. Ahhh… :)
just spilled a mug of this on myself at work.
luckily it had cooled off.
Not a fan of really fruity/berry teas, but if you are, perhaps give this one a try. The tea itself is light and tastes mostly of blueberries with a hint of floral something (the white cranberry perhaps?) in the background. Very fragrant berry notes right from the start, it smells sweeter, stronger, and heavier than the tea actually tastes, which [imo] gets in the way. Not horrible, but not something I’ll reach for very often.
made a hot cup at work in an attempt to relax… just might have done the trick! :)
Definitely smooth, there is something really nature-y about this tea. The toasted notes carry through the entire sip start to finish, and [imo] the whole experience is middle-tones. It’s floral, mellow, and faintly grassy, but nothing is bright – just very even keel. It actually tastes darker and the floral notes linger heavier than I expected (although I am rather new to tea). Not bad, but I’m not sure I’m a fan – I think I’d like to try this from a different purveyor before deciding…
My go-to tea while I’m at work! Iced in the summer, or nice and warm when I’m needing that calm cozy feeling. The lemon and spearmint perk my cup up nicely without being obnoxious- a welcome change from downing cheap coffee all morning. (Can I say that on a tea site?)
