1847 Tasting Notes
Got this as a teapop based on the recommendations of the DAVIDs employees. I gotta say, I did not love it. I think this is best cold brewed because it keeps the hibby from taking over. Today, this was a combination hibby tartness, seltzer water carbonation weirdness, and just a hint of yogurty creaminess.
So I cold brewed this yesterday with the intention of getting one more sipdown in on “Sipdown Saturday” but ended up going to a Brazilian grill and by the time I was done dinner, it was way too late and I was way too full to have anything else so I strained this and left it for today. Then life got in the way once again and I spent a few hours with my sister just relaxing and watching shows in bed and then I spent the evening helping her boyfriend dig a hole for his mom’s new shed. So, I finally got around to drinking this now and honestly, I am happy to be finishing this up. As a cold brew, it is more strawberry flavored than it was hot but still there is a touch of bitterness I am not digging and mostly I am just left feeling underwhelmed by this blend. Thank you Sil for the sample but this is one more tea I can cross off my list. 145.
I had this iced and of all the ingredients in the blend, all I got was a lot of apple (which certainly makes sense for Snow White) and a hint of hibby tartness (which I like to think of as the poison :P). It was actually quite nice. I don’t know if this is one I would buy in quantity but I wouldn’t turn down a cup. Thank you for sharing Scheherazade. 147.
I grabbed this out of the GCTTB Rd 3 to try later and as I sip on it now, I can’t help but feel like this is a rather strange mint tea. I don’t know how I feel about the tarragon. Perhaps it actually detracts from the “refreshing” element and instead takes this to a more savory type tea. Mostly, I am just finding myself at a loss. It was fun to try though so thank you mewakeling for sharing. 151.
