2 Tasting Notes

drank Wild Berry by Clipper
2 tasting notes

I didn’t like this infusion at all. Usually I love Clipper teas because of their honest taste, but this was just awful.
The colour is pretty purplish red, but the scent is a bit weird and overly sweet.
I can’t even describe the taste. But it will be stuck in your mouth for a looong time after drinking. It’s like sickly sweet beetroot. Ew.

drank IHQ by Nordqvist
2 tasting notes

I had to buy this tea just because the name of this tea is absolutely ridiculous. It comes from Finnish teenager slang which none self-respecting teen uses anymore. Literally IHQ means “lovely”, “super cool” or something like that.
As it was instructed in the package, I let the tea leaves steep for a bit over four minutes. The scent of marshmallows was absolutely lovely while the tea was stewing.
As I tasted IHQ, I was pleasantly surprised. I expected a way too sweet, artificial taste, but the taste was mild but still easily distinguishable. Even though it tasted great, IHQ is too bland for my liking. There were just notes of vanilla and marshmallows, nothing else. I like my tea as a complicated mix of different flavours, not as just one flavour.
