4 Tasting Notes
I had this in my TeaGschwendner’s advent calender. It should be noted that I don’t usually drink fruit teas, except for proper Turkish apple tea (it’s amazing!). I’m also really suspicious of teas that contain “aromas” instead of actual ingredients — and quite surprised that TeaGschwendner does that, but then, their trend teas never lured me.
So. I found this cup rather awful. I didn’t quite believe the neon pink colour to start with, and then the taste was rather weak and undefinable (yeah, I guess you could call it “complex”), but it still managed to leave a horrendous aftertaste. I probably should have used a little less water, though. If only to run out of the tea earlier…
I’m not so big on cocoa teas, but my best friend loves them, so I always have them in stock. After spending a ridiculous amount of time at her flat drinking this tea, I have become rather fond of this mix — the rooibos and liquorice stuff is a great mix (says the rooibos fan), but it isn’t spicy enough. Cocoa teas have to be spicy. With chili!
This is probably my favourite tea ever, despite its overpriced teabagginess (and slightly unfortunate name). I wish they’d sell it loose… I love the sweet spiciness. Yum. I found it works great as a before-bed tea, despite the name. It probably makes me energetic when I believe in it though.
