886 Tasting Notes
Thank you Skysamurai for letting me try this unique tea!
I’m generally a fan of hibiscusy herbals, so I was excited to try this one and intrigued by the cola aspect. It steeps up a BRIGHT purplish red immediately and smells distinctly of cola. I took a couple of sips hot and knew I wanted to pour the rest over ice. I think I really like this tea conceptually. I think the hibiscus, cinnamon and cola pair well together, but the stevia is throwing me off. If this had no sweetener so I could add my own I would be much happier, I think. Really unique though and I’m glad I got to try it! :)
Ooof. This weather! We didn’t even get that much snow compared to the rest of the state…but it is so cold my garage door was frozen shut and my boss had to come pick me up and bring me to work :(
Anyway, LOTS OF HOT TEA TODAY. Special dark is perfect for this weather :)
Go home Arctic, you’re drunk! http://scienceblogs.com/gregladen/2014/01/05/go-home-arctic-youre-drunk/
Thank you so much CrowKettle for sharing some of this special tea with me! :D
It DOES have a really interesting combination of black tea and white tea characteristics. There is enough going on here to keep me rapt sip after sip! I would purchase some in the future, if my cupboard is ever low enough to allow it, lol.
