3181 Tasting Notes
So when you’re sick, tea tastes off. Moreso than food. And since today I am feeling okay, I wasn’t sure if the tea would taste off or not. Consequently I decided to make a smoothie but opted to use something I had a lot of in case it got weird. Well, initially when I tried this, I basically just got the rooibos base but somehow that transitioned to a honey-like flavor drizzled over the mixes berries that make up a considerable part of this smoothie. So that’s fun.
I’ve had a fever the past 2 nights but I have 3 sick days for the whole year and I’ll be damned if I use them in February. So, each morning I have taken my temperature and since that’s fine I go to work and then slowly get worse through the day. Well today someone on my team noticed and bought me this tea. I was actually quite grateful because the hot tea was rather soothing. Yay for work friends! Boo for management that thinks 3 “personal time off days are enough for an entire year”
Review for the tea-infused milk chocolate bar
A couple weeks back I found a DAVIDs that had a whole bunch of their holiday stuff left and on sale, including their chocolates. For $2 I decided to give this a try and it was AWESOME!! I think my favorite DAVIDsTEA infused chocolate: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/17/cardamom-french-toast-tea-infused-milk-chocolate-bar-from-davids-tea/
Happy Valentine Day everyone!! I may be single but I have awesome friends so I’m now the proud owner of two new mugs from DAVIDs and the heart shaped tin of this tea. Luckily this was my preferred of the Valentine’s Day collection which I reviewed here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/14/the-2017-valentines-day-collection-from-davids-tea/

So the last time I had this it was as a latte and it was amazing. Today I decided to try it plain and though the smell of sticky toffee pudding took over the whole apartment the taste was lacking. It’s like toffe syrup sweetened black tea. Not bad but the milk definitely brought out more sticky toffee pudding flavor so I’ll stick to having this as a latte.
I swore I had this years ago but there doesn’t seem to be a note. Nonetheless, I thought I would try it (again?) and it would seem that I am (still?) not a huge fan. I made it today as a latte and if I am being fair there is nothing wrong here since it delivers on what it promises: there’s begamot, there’s rose, and there’s chocolate (though a little dusty thanks to carob). Unfortunately, I just don’t love the flavor components to begin with and putting them together makes it that much more unpleasant for me. So, at the end of the day I can appreciate that this makes a nice latte for those who like these ingredients but for me…well let’s just say I don’t think my tastes have changed as much as I thought they did. Oh well.
ETA: My old tasting note popped up when I posted this. So I definitely have had this before and I was not a fan back then either :P.
