1005 Tasting Notes
I tried Grand Amour last time I went to Nina’s and the Red Currant was too strong for my liking, which made me hesitant about trying this one. Luckily, a teabag of this was slipped into my box of teas which gave me a chance to try it and I really like it. It is reminiscent of a strawberry or cherry hard candy. Delicious and not at all medicinal like Red Currant teas can tend to be. Thank you Laurent and Sophie for the opportunity to try this tea. I think this will be one I get again :)
Thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending this my way. I got so excited to try this tea that I immediately brewed up a cup. However, I never got a chance to try it hot because right when I sat down to enjoy it my sister called to see all the new clothes I bought today and it took me probably over an hour to try everything on. So trying it now, it tastes a lot like 52 teas black base with a hint of milk chocolate, which is not a good sign. I will hold off on rating until I try it properly but if this is any indication of what this tastes likes, I will be really disappointed.
I quite like this tea which leaves me conflicted. I keep thinking that I will put it in the teabox that is enroute to me as it is from a local store and I would like to spread the love but then I have a cup and I am reminded just how juicy and delicious it is and I have the urge to hoard it. Luckily, I am still on vacation for the next couple of days which means I have time to think about it and maybe sip on a few more cups :)
Sometimes just because you CAN do something, doesn’t mean you SHOULD . For instance, just because you CAN eat four Krispy Kreme donuts in one car ride does not mean you should eat them. Or just because you CAN chug two bottles of water in under a minute, does not mean you should. I, of course, am speaking in the hypothetical here however should you decide to do those things and just happen to feel quite nauseous, you may want to drink a mint tea. Perhaps one like this tea. Just a thought.
This is one of the Nina’s teas I tried last time I went to the offices and I ended up buying more when I visited this time. It has a pretty strong rooibos scent and that does slightly transfer over to taste but there is also a nice strawberry flavor to the cup. It is not the greatest rooibos tea I have had in my life, nor the best strawberry tea but I do enjoy it enough that I want to have it around for some caffeine-free variety.
This smelled so amazing, as most orange teas do but like all other orange teas, I am not a fan. It is warm and cozy thanks to the cinnamon but I just don’t really like citrus teas. For those who do like orange teas, this is worth a try but it is not for me. Nonetheless, thank you Laurent and Sophie at Nina’s Paris for the chance to try this tea.
