2762 Tasting Notes
So I have now successfully attended my first hot yoga class and it was no where near as hot or as frightening as I had anticipated. It was actually quite nice and relaxing and walking out into the cold air afterwords was pretty heavenly.
Alas, this matcha is not nearly as pleasant. Not that it is bad but mostly rather nondescript as it merely tastes like sweetened milk.
So I really enjoyed this when I first had it but there is something off about it today. What was originally a warm and comforting baked good flavor is now a sharp burst of artificial flavor that is throwing off the whole cup. I would drop the rating but the scroll bar is not phone friendly :(. If I were rating this cup though, it would be closer to a 68 or 70.
Sad sipdown :(
Talking about this with Courtney made me want a cup. Unfortunately, there was not as much left as I thought and so my cup used up all the leaf. Now it is gone and I already miss it delicious strawberry milkshake flavor. At least I still have my strawberries and cream matcha to hold me over until I can get more.
Flavors: Berries, Cream
My roommate has always felt that matcha should not be flavored. She is sort of a purist that way but she was happy to choose one for me to drink since I was having an indecisive evening. She selected this and so I prepped it as usually, in a glass of cold milk.
I handed her the cup and she was shocked it was cold. Then she took a sip and quite enjoyed it. Now she is planning on trying plain matcha prepped the same way and got excited at the prospect of using different flavors of almond milk to make matchas.
As for the taste, this was delicious as usual. Expertly captures the flavor of French Butter Cookies. I think in the future, I might forgo any vanilla flavors in favor of this one.
This plus Marshmallow Snowflake Earl Grey are probably the only EGs I enjoy. It must be the use of flavors to mellow the bergamot. This actually sits right on the border or too much EG and just right but I do like the other flavors and this enjoy having the option of a cup every now and then. Thank you Cavocorax for providing me with a few more cups worth :).
Whoa this is rich. Very, very rich! Maybe even too rich? It is a liquified brownie smothered in caramel. I think I would really need to be in the mood for this one as I am finding it hard to get through right now. Thank you Courtney! I think this will be something I turn to when I really need that brownie flavor.
Thank you Courtney for the chance to try this tea. It is not my favorite root beer tea (I think that goes to Butiki’s Root Beer Float Honeybush) but it is certainly a pleasant cup.
In other news, apparently there will be a Supernatural spin-off called “Supernatural: Tribes”. Has anyone heard about this?! What is Supernatural without a Winchester? I am not sure how I feel about this…
Most of the time I love the vanilla pudding flavor, so much so that I debate about stocking up. However, every so often, the oolong flavor creeps in and I am left unimpressed which makes me hesitant to buy more. That is probably why I buy only 10 g of a time.
Flavors: Cream, Orchids, Vanilla
Thank you Sil!! This is certainly a delicious black tea. It is one I would even consider stocking as it is fruity and smooth and really quite tasty. I definitely was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did and now it is gone and I am sad.
Thank you Courtney for the chance to try this tea. I am finding something very strange about this cup though. It is almost nutty in flavor. This is very reminiscent of Stash’s Vanilla Nut Creme for me and I was not a fan of that one. Nonetheless, I am glad I got the opportunity to try something new.
