3014 Tasting Notes
So when you first discover tea and then find out about black friday sales you tend to go a bit overboard and then you have way too much tea that you felt you needed because it was such a good price and how else would you try all the teas. Well apparently I am rediscovering tea because somehow I just can’t stop myself from placing orders. Seriously. It’s bad. And I can’t even say it’s because of sales since only one order is from the BF sales. In the past two weeks I have placed a 52 Teas order (which is being shipped with the 12 Teas of Christmas order I placed a while ago), a Necessiteas order, A Quarter to Tea order, and a Liquid Prost order. Not to mention Teavivre teas just arrived yesterday and I have a monthly subscription with TeaTaxi. Plus a swap with Arby incoming. I am already over 200 teas so this is both exciting and terrifying.
As for this particular tea, it’s been quite soothing while I considered all the money I have spent on tea thus far. And how much more I may potentially spend this weekend. The ginger is adding a warmth while the apricot/stone fruit flavor is taking over. It is lovely and calming and just an easy drink to sip on this evening.
Had this as an eggnog latte (or maybe a smoothie…actually I think it was a smoothie) the other day and I don’t recall much other than this having an alcohol sort of smell/taste to it. Sorta like chocolate and amaretto. It was okay but nothing I need to have again, especially in light of the mate in the base.
Banana starts the sip and lingers throughout. It gives way for some cherry which quickly devolves into hibiscus. In the aftertaste, all flavors come together as a sort of mix of banana medicine and fruit punch with the slightest touch of cough medicine. That sounds weird but this is a nice alternative to other fruit blends and one I think I’d like more of.
