2388 Tasting Notes
First day in London and my friend and I have already gone for afternoon tea. I ordered this because there wasn’t a large selection and though I had this and was less enthused than I expected, I thought I could coax out the Nutella flavor with some sugar. What I found instead was though the sugar brought out the hazelnutty goodness at first, this tea quickly became bitter and earthy while sitting in the pot. It was weird because there was no leaves sitting in the tea but overtime it just became muddy. So, try as I may, I think it’s fair to say that this just isn’t for me and that’s okay.
Roswell Strange sent me this many months ago and I have been at a loss for what to do with it. Usually I drink my matcha with milk but Champagne milk just seemed like an odd choice. However, for some reason, a champagne vanilla smoothie seemed like it would work better. In hindsight I’m not sure why but that’s how I made this and unfortunately all the champagne flavor is drowned out by the vanilla smoothie mix. Seriously, I am getting no flavor at all and seeing as it’s distinctive flavoring, I should be able to taste something but alas I got nothing at all. Still, thank you Roswell Strange for the share!
I was excited about the raspberry component but not really that enthused about the violet or green base. Still, MissB was kind enough to share so I figured it was at least worth a try. However, I find myself drinking the cup trying to ignore the strong florals of the violet instead of enjoying the sweet raspberry or the tea as a whole. In the end, as fun as it is to try, this tea just isn’t for me. Still, I would like to thank MissB for sending some my way!
