2605 Tasting Notes
Thank you to both The Teaist and Scheherazade for sharing this tea with me. I expected to love it given the rave reviews but tbh I am less than impressed. It is good but nothing I would write home about.
Today, I am comparing it both hot and cold brewed. Personally I think I prefer it cold brewed as there is a nice berries and floral element that really shines. Hot the flavors are a touch muted. Although ultimately I will not miss either flavor profiles now that the tea is gone. Nonetheless, I am extremely grateful I got to try this.
Thank you Dexter3657 for the chance to have this tea again. It is warming and delicious and tastes like a fresh cookie. With that said, I think my initial awe with all Simpson & Vail teas has worn off. I find myself comparing this to Brioche and it falls a touch short. Doesn’t mean I am not really enjoying it but rather I am not so desperate to get my hands on more of it.
Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing. I think this is my favorite of all DAVIDs mate teas. It is a nice combination of raspberry and chocolate and the roasted mate only emphasizes those flavors. However, at the end of the day I just don’t reach for mate often enough to justify buying a lot of this. Though I can imagine this is something I would pick up 10 g of from time to time when the mood strikes.
In other news, apparently I missed it but I am now over 800 tasting notes.
Flavors: Berries, Chocolate
After steeping this for 20 minutes I am getting some peanut butter and a little bit of a creaminess that I would call cheesecake. With that said, it is not what I was expecting. Something about it is a touch off and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I have one more cup of this remaining and though it is a tasty enough cup, I won’t be too heartbroken when it is gone.
Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this one with me. It is actually a very delicious vanilla tea. However, I have said before and I will say it again, this is quite similar to Vanilla Comoro and as that one is caffeine free, that is the one I will be keeping around.
Thank you Aimee Popovacki for this tasty tea. I drank up what Roswell Strange sent me yesterday and today I finished off the last of my second sample. It is a good tea and I am sure I will get more in the future but I just don’t know when in the future. So much tea, so little time but I am happy I got to try it.
