1820 Tasting Notes
Of the tree house collection, this is my least favorite. There is a fairly strong cherry flavor that at times can be slightly medicinal. The coconut provides a creaminess but can also take on a lotion-esque quality. Very weird. Not horrible but not great either. Still, I am grateful for the chance to try something new. Thank you Scheherazade!
Made this iced and the result is a very refreshing cup. At first, I thought it was lemon that provided the bright citrus notes but I am guessing it was probably the orange. This is sweet and fruity and very nice and whether hot or cold, it is pleasantly delicious. I definitely will be getting more of this one in the future. Thank you Scheherazade for giving me a second opportunity to try this tea! I really appreciate it :)
Is Mi Xian a type of tea? Or a place where tea is grown? I only ask because I can only recall having one other Mi Xian tea (Butiki’s) and I am really not a lover of either. Not that I think they are bad teas but I don’t enjoy the flavor profile as much as I have some other black teas. I find myself wanting some more malt and dessert-type notes but instead it is more flat and with a touch of fruit at the end of each sip. Nonetheless, thank you Cavocorax for sharing.
Having this iced this evening and though I am still not in love with this tea, I think it prefer it this way. The mint really shines while the chocolate comes in closer to the end of the sip and leaves behind a creamy milk chocolatey sweetness. Thank you for sharing Cavocorax!!
Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me. After really enjoying the Rocket Fuel Cavocorax shared with me, I was really intrigued by the whole collection. This one in particular piqued my interest as it was specifically recommended by Cavo and now I can see why. Instantly I taste chocolate but then notes of chocolate/raspberry sneak in. To me, this seems like a slightly weaker version of DAVIDs Chocolate Rocket but it is caffeine-free which makes it all the more appealing. I definitely will have to pick up more of this in the future.
This bag is quickly coming to an end and I will miss it when it’s gone but I have some of the other marshmallow treats to satisfy my flavored genmaicha cravings. Well, those and Japon of course. Still, this has always produced a rich s’mores treat so I am sad that I have just one serving left.
