631 Tasting Notes
I got this in a swap with T.C. WAY earlier this year! It has just been hanging out in my fridge…I never tried it because upon sniffing it I could tell it was SPEARMINT matcha. I’m really picky about mint at times and generally strongly prefer peppermint! I decided to taste it this morning to make sure it is fresh before I pass it along to another Steepster in a swap! I prepared it as a hot latte with honey, and it is indeed fresh, and better than I expected! I suspect it would be AMAZING mixed with some HOT CHOCOLATE! :D
Hmm, I was really excited to try this one. It SOUNDS like it would be something totally up my alley. I LOVE raspberry (I just ate a raspberry chocolate Chobani bite for breakfast with this tea.) AND ginger. There was a big fat tasty looking green cardamom pod in with the dry leaf too (YUM! I love cardamom) And the dry leaf smells really good. However, steeped up, it is somewhat artificial tasting. It isn’t so terrible that I am tempted to dump it out, BUT I’m glad it was a swap sample and not a purchase.
Thanks again BrewTEAlly Sweet!
This will be the first of many tasting notes from the huge box of swap samples BrewTEAlly Sweet sent me! Thaaaaaaaanks! :D
Della Terra makes a few rooibos teas I can actually enjoy, though generally I tend to really dislike rooibos. This is another winner from Della Terra. I think I like it even more than the lemon chiffon! Super creamy and Limey! The bitterness of the rooibos is completely masked, and I love me some lime in general :)
Glad to have a few new herbals to try, since it is chilly in the evenings now, and I’m actually reaching for evening teas again.
