3026 Tasting Notes
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 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.
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.
