3026 Tasting Notes

I made this as an eggnog latte and I forgot about it so now I tried drinking it cold except something went really wrong and there’s a weird artificial sweet lemon-cinnamon component. Kind of disgusting tbh.

I have never had horchata or rumchata and tbh I am not really sure what it is but what I am sure of is I am a fan of this tea. Creamy and vanilla with a little nut and a lot of toasted rice. Rum creeps in slightly in the aftertaste and everything about this is just good. Yum!

This one sounds like a winner.

So I initially bought 50 grams by accident. Then three days later the 50 grams was gone. I now own 300 grams…oops.

At least it makes for a pretty great eggnog latte: http://sororiteasisters.com/2016/12/08/holiday-tea-alert-candy-cane-crush-from-davids-tea/

I love flavored genmaichas and mostly when I say that I am thinking about a 52 Teas flavored genmaicha since they have the most variety to offer. However, now that I am sipping on this one, I think that could be generalized to all flavored genmaichas. This is definitely different than a 52 Tea’s blend as it highlights the base tea and the berry comes through more in the aftertaste. Also contrasted to the sweet and dessert-like 52 Tea’s blend, this is definitely truer to the fruit itself. Both good in different ways :)

Thank you Sil for sending this my way. It is definitely a tea I have enjoyed though the flavor is almost gone so it is time to say goodbye.

Thank you Arby for the share. Your swap package is actually one of two packages I have been carrying around in my purse all day, the other being my teas from Liquid Prost. I was super excited to try everything but haven’t gotten a chance until now.

Tbh I worried that this tea would be gimmicky and thus not very good. I am happy to report that’s not the case. The base is mellow and subtle which leaves a whole lot of room for the pomegranate flavor to shine. To me, this is actually a cross between cassis and pomegranate since it’s not quite as sweet as pomegranate and has a touch of that cassis richness. It’s actually quite an enjoyable tea to sip on.

I’m so glad you like it! These teas are a little older (although stored well) and weren’t the highest grade to begin with. The blueberry and pomegranate ones are my favourites, I thought the bases were actually quite good in combination with the fruit essence.

I made this as an eggnog latte and mostly I am just tasting the eggnog. There’s a little chocolate but I may just be getting that cuz I think I should. I will have to play around with this more to actually see if the flavor is there/good.

So my dad is at a food festival in California and just called because he found a tea booth and wanted to know if there was anything I wanted to try. For a family that doesn’t drink tea, they are getting pretty good at sniffing it out and finding me new companies to try. Unfortunately no one has found a Butiki replacement. Luckily I have a fair bit of this left and it is holding up well over time. Not to mention that even if the flavor fades, I am left with the tasty White Rhino tea so all is well for a while.

Finishing this as an eggnog latte and it is incredibly decadent despite being underleafed. It actually tastes like a chocolate/Nutella covered strawberry with an emphasis on the chocolate. It’s a rich tea and a little more of a flavor punch than I anticipated this morning. It definitely delivers on what’s promised.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
