1849 Tasting Notes
I grabbed this out of the GCTTB Rd 3 to try later and as I sip on it now, I can’t help but feel like this is a rather strange mint tea. I don’t know how I feel about the tarragon. Perhaps it actually detracts from the “refreshing” element and instead takes this to a more savory type tea. Mostly, I am just finding myself at a loss. It was fun to try though so thank you mewakeling for sharing. 151.
I iced the rest of my sample from Scheherazade and though there is a touch more apple and a hint of caramel, the honeybush still takes over. I am left feeling really happy I didn’t buy the pouch of this because this sample was more than enough for me. So long caramel apple honeybush, our relationship has run its course. 153.
I had high hopes for this one but I am just not loving it. Mostly I get the honeybush and the cinnamon. Every now and then notes of pumpkin show up for just a second but for some reason this just isn’t working. Nonetheless, thank you Scheherazade for sharing as this is one I was really interested in and would have bought in larger quantities if I hadn’t sampled it first. 155.
When I got this, I hoped it would be a bit lighter than the caramel and honey one given the fruity flavor. However this is just as rich which means you really have to be in the mood for it to enjoy the cup. Typically I am just not looking for something so dense when I am drinking caffeine free so this won’t be a restock. Still, it was fun to try. 157.
Thank you for sharing Scheherazade. This is interesting as it is supposed to be a green rooibos with mixed berries and rose but all I am getting is the rooibos and rose. Every now and then a touch of raspberry tartness might sneak in but in a blind taste test, I would not have guessed the ingredients in this blend. Still, it’s always fun to try new things. 158.
