687 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking SO much tea today because I woke up with a sore throat. I had a cup of this, several cups of my “wellness blend” from a local shop with echinacea, licorice root, chamomile and mint, and a cup of banana dream pie. Not going to review anything till my palette is accurate again. Meh. What a waste of a gorgeous day outside AND a day off work feeling crummy :/
MMmm, this is a nice comforting cup on a rainy afternoon. Mild black tea with berry and vanilla flavoring. I’m drinking it sweetened, and am getting just a tiny bit of pleasant tartness from the raspberry. Very tasty, but I’m not getting any “cake” flavor from it. Smells WONDERFUL.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet!
Ahhh. This is just what I needed this afternoon. Super rich, dark, and spicy! It tastes like unsweetened Mexican chocolate, with a touch of earthy pu-erh and citrus peel. Sweetened this would be an AMAZING dessert or latte tea! Another winner from my box of goodies from BrewTEAlly Sweet :D One of the best I’ve had from Della Terra actually!!!
Mmmm! Creamy limey goodness! So smooth! I’m fairly impressed with this David’s blend. If I ever end up buying some I’ll probably mix it with some additional sencha, as its light on the actual sencha. I am drinking it hot but I’ll probably try the rest of my sample over ice.
Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet! :)
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!
