1614 Tasting Notes
I’m studying for my boards exam, which is tomorrow! I decided to brew this up! I realized I only had a tiny bit for one last brew. Finished it up!
This tea is fruity and has calmed down in scent in comparison to when I first opened it up. I love the flavor of this now. I like how it isn’t tart, but the fruitiness is strong.
I’m a huge fan of lemongrass and vanilla and rooibos! So naturally, I liked this blend. This tea didn’t smell strong. Once it was brewed, it was a nice ruddy brown tisane! The lemongrass didn’t stand out that much, but I did notice vanilla and cream. Good tea! I might add more of my lemongrass to this mix to see if this makes more a difference. Great blend, and I’m glad I’m drinking it now. Thank you so much Rachel :)
This is a nice, green rooibos. It tastes similar to RoT’s Plantain Coconut Raw Green Bush Tea. Similar but not really. I think it is because of the green rooibos has a starchy but sweet taste to it. I’ve never tried it alone, however. This is tropical in flavor with some mild fruity flavors. It isn’t tart or overly sweet. This has a nice balance. Good tea overall, but not my favorite.
I love the little caramel squares in this tea! I wanted to nibble on it, but I refrained. When I steeped this up, it was a nice black tea. Strong! It tasted good on its own, but I felt the need to add a little sugar and some milk to it. It brought out the caramel/vanilla flavor. It also had a tinge of powdered milk taste to it. The caramel melted! This is a delicious tea!
