2768 Tasting Notes
So I made yet another smoothie using a strawberry-banana mixed fruit bag, peanut butter, and vanilla pudding. My hope was the vanilla pudding and this tea would compliment her but instead the peanut butter and strawberry are what shine. All of that is topped by the floral not of this tea. Again it’s good, and this is definitely sweeter than earlier raspberry smoothie but the chocolate varieties are still my preferred.
I got new fruits for my smoothies and vanilla pudding in addition to chocolate so now I can get all sorts of creative. I decided to go with raspberries and vanilla to finish off this tea and the smoothie just heightens the whole raspberry sorbet thing this tea has going on. It is nice, albeit not my favorite smoothie that I have had.
Thank you, Sil for sharing this one with me. I used it today in my daily smoothie and maybe that wasn’t the best way to actually taste the tea but it certainly made for a tasty treat. The vanilla actually came through by toning down the chocolate in the smoothie making it almost lighter while still being very flavorful. It went down fast…and easily which is a good sign though I dont really remember specific qualities as I was distracted by online shopping.
Apparently I have had this before so that’s a thing. This time around, the awesome Sil shared some with me. I’m having it iced and it is really quite lovely. The peach is really prominent here and there is melon though there is also something a bit off about it all. My guess is maybe just older leaf or more of the base coming through. It’s still nice enough and I am grateful to Sil for the share. Thank you, Sil!
The whole time I brewed this, my mother complained about how it smelled so sweet it was making her nauseous and I can see where she is coming from but she was also a bit dramatic about it. With that said, because of the sweetness to this tea, I figured making it an iced latte would help tone it down a bit and luckily I was right. The milk compliments the “custard” of it all while making it easier to drink. This seems a good way to go about drinking the rest of the leaf as I bought a lot and have fallen out of love with this quite a bit. At least this method is better than others tastewise while simultaneously using more leaf.
