2368 Tasting Notes
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.
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!
My tea twin Roswell Strange sent me a sample of this and it was sooo good! I wasn’t sure quite how to make it so I put two tsps in hot milk and let it stir in my machine. The result? A super creamy cup of awesomeness. It tasted somewhat like vanilla frosted Cheerios and it was amazing. I will definitely be having more soon. Thanks Roswell Strange!!
