1343 Tasting Notes
Roswell Strange, you have created an addict. I basically have a few more teaspoons left of a 50 g bag that I got less than a month ago. Seriously, it is a problem! I just can’t help myself because cold brewed this is 100% vanilla frosting deliciousness. Amazing!
In other news, I have just finished one of my exams. I am happy because I know I did well but sad because it is for a class where the mark doesn’t count. Nonetheless, it is pretty exciting stuff. I have one final project due tomorrow, an exam on Thursday, a take-home exam due on the 23rd and then I am done my degree. It is pretty surreal.
Thank you Faith for sharing this with me. I really expected to love it but something in the blend is just not for me. I think perhaps I expected more strawberry flavor and less rooibos but that is not what I am getting. It is not bad but just not something I need to have again, which is good because it is not available anymore.
Between this tea and the Rabbit’s Garden, I seem to have a bit of an Easter theme going, albeit a week early and completely unplanned. Anyways, thank you Sil for sharing this tea with me. As I brewed it up, I couldn’t help but hover because it smells really amazing. Alas, this doesn’t necessarily translate to the taste. Not that it is bad but rather, like so many other french teas, the scent is significantly stronger than the flavor. What I hoped to taste was a creamy vanilla. What I am tasting is mostly the smooth black base and citrus notes. Not bad but not necessarily for me either. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the opportunity to have tried something new.
Thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try this tea. It is definitely I was interested in sampling given its unique ingredient list. Now having tasted it, I can say it is good and definitely worth giving a try but it is not something I NEED to have stocked.
This particular cup is actually from last night and has cooled significantly. The most prominent element is the peach by far but the veggies provide a nice complimentary taste to round out the flavor. Also, the base is virtually undetectable thus allowing more room for the other flavors to shine. A really fun and delicious tea!
