2359 Tasting Notes

The is a nice enough tea to drink. It’s a little sweet from the goji and a little vegetal from the base (though not in an offensive way) but at the end of the day it’s not really making a huge impact. Once I finish this cup, I’ll probably forget about this tea as it’s just nothing special. Still it is pleasant to try and I am grateful to MissB and Sil for making that happen!

drank Butter Mint Sensation by Twinings

Thank you MissB for sharing this tea and Sil for passing it along. You both are awesome! And so is this tea. It has a nice, smooth mint flavor that is beautifully coupled with a buttery creaminess. It perfectly captures the flavor of a butter mint. Plus, the two flavors combined are creating a caramel-like sweetness which is making for quite the treat this afternoon.

I am getting lime and guava. It’s actually quite nice but every now and again the cacao creeps up and makes for a very strange cup. It adds an earthiness that takes away from the brightness of the exotic fruit flavors. Also, the base can be rather vegetal at times which leads to even more competition for the fruity goodness. It’s nice though not something I would stock up on. Still, thank you MissB for sharing and Sil for passing some along.

Oh, also, I laughed when I read one of the ingredients was “a piece of carrot”. Just one piece? That seems very specific.

drank Long Island Cola by Island Rose

This is so weird because it actually smells just like cola. Tastewise, I am getting hot, flat, hibby-flavored cola. Flat and soda just isn’t right but I could see this having potential as a tea soda.

Cavocorax was super generous and gave me a fair bit of this tea so now I can indulge in lattes galore. Today I decided to try something new so I used cashew milk instead of regular milk (or eggnog :P). Unfortunately it did something super weird and covered up most of the root beer flavoring. Instead it heightened the creamy vanilla portion of this tea but also highlighted a weird sweetness that is usually hidden in the tea. It’s still good but not as good as other lattes I have made. Still, it was fun to try so thank you Cavo for the chance to make these again!

love this one as a latte lol

drank Elephant Vanilla Chai by David Rio

So I realized today what I was really tasting…snickerdoodles complete with vanilla icing. Oh so delicious. Thank you for sharing Roswell Strange!! I think I may be taking a trip to Sobeys to get more of this in the future.

I’ve decided I’m gonna mix this into some frosting for cupcakes next time I made them. Either Butter Pecan with Chai icing or Chocolate with Chai…

Both would be pretty tasty. I’m more partial for butter pecan but only because I’m not a huge lover of chocolate cake. However chocolate chai is pretty tasty so I’m sure either would be awesome.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
