2236 Tasting Notes
Root beer teas as lattes is just right. Thank you rosebudmelissa for the sample which promptly got dumped in my steeper for tonight’s dessert treat. The cup was so creamy and had an amazing root beer flavor. Plus, the milk subdued the honeybush making the flavoring stand out that much more. A great tea for the evening!
Made this tonight as a latte using skim milk. I was a bit worried because I thought maybe the skim milk wouldn’t foam well. No need to worry there as I got about 2 inches of solid foam. The downside of skim milk? It definitely is not as creamy or as rich as my beloved eggnog lattes (shocking, I know :P). Mostly it’s just the tea with slightly more milky water and then foam. It’s still good though as I’m a fan of the tea.
I cold brewed three teaspoons of this in a bottle of water and the result is a very sweet, juice-like drink. Granted, it is thinner than juice, as to be expected but it still has a juice-type flavor. The apple is it’s typical sweet self but it doesn’t take over as the cranberry certainly holds it’s own. It’s actually quite the tasty evening treat so thank you Roswell Strange for sending some my way.
Thank you MissB for sharing! This is an alright cup. I am a fan of pineapple and that is certainly present here. There is also another flavor, which I am guessing is the ginseng that is sort of just there and neither adds or detracts from the cup. At the end of the day though, this is on a green base and I’m just not a lover of of green teas. Still, it’s always fun to try something new.
Apples and berries should make for a tasty combination, shouldn’t it? Sweet apple mixed with delicious berries that give just a hint of tartness. However, apples, berries, and grass? Not such an awesome blend and unfortunately it’s the grassy notes that stand out. Plus, the apple sweetness is very strong and has no berry tartness to keep it in check. It’s just not what I hoped for when I brewed this up this morning.
