3181 Tasting Notes
A tasty tea for a fun song! Thank you Roswell Strange for the share: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/10/cocteau-from-august-uncommon/
So when I looked at the ingredients it seemed this was just a black tea with cute heart sprinkles. Nothing special but a good addition to sweeten my mixes berry smoothie and another tea for my 365 Days of Tea on instagram that is valentines themed. The smoothie was good, I just don’t know what role the tea itself played in that so more to come when I try this plain.
This has star anise apparently but thankfully it is not distinct in the taste. That I do recall. Unfortunately I don’t recall the specifics of this tea since I sipped absentmindedly while watching the Flash. I did like it though. More to come in future notes when I actually pay attention.
February means all the Valentine’s Day teas, including this one. It is a green and white blend with papaya and pineapple which is not very Valentine’s so they added strawberry and rose to make it more themed.
The base is a little stronger than the other green teas I have had by TeaTaxi and the end result is a little soapy. My guess is that is the white tea…and maybe rose. The fruits are generically tropical, with a hint of strawberry at the end of the sip.
I found some Pumpkin Chai tins on sale in January and had some eggnog lying around so I put them together and the end result was awesome! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/07/pumpkin-chai-from-davids-tea/
I made the last of this and steeped for a shorter period in a smaller mug I am getting more than just ginger. Still no honey or pancakes but notes of molasses are helping create a gingerbread experience. Actually, I take it back. There is honey in here courtesy of the yunnan base. Pancakes are still a no go but maybe that was trying to do too much with one tea? I am just happy this last cup went better than the last and though I am not sad I am finishing this, I will miss the incredibly pretty leaf.
