2228 Tasting Notes
Thank you Nattie!! This smells like a fudgey brownie which is oh-so-tempting but the taste is mostly cacao. Granted it is a rich cacao flavor, one I am enjoying far more than most but at the end of the day, it is still cacao and that is not a flavor that is really for me when it comes to teas. However, I 100% recommend this to anyone who enjoys cacao flavors with a little bit of a tasty kick.
Thank you Nattie for the opportunity to try this tea. For a green tea, it is incredibly smooth. It is also a very light tea with a subtle fruity flavor. The chili is merely a very, very slight burn at the back of the throat right at the end of the sip. I find myself wanting MORE. More if everything. I want more passionfruit and lime flavor so they are noticeable and distinct and I want more of a chili kick. As this tea is now, I find it pleasant but not something all that memorable. C’est la vie.
Thank you Nattie for the chance to try this tea. Anytime I see “Birthday Cake” I am immediately intrigued so this one called to me. This one is actually really good. It tastes like sponge cake but also like baked goods made with almond flour. There is also a sweetness that definitely calls to mind just a touch of icing. Yum!
I am not a lover of chais and this box has a lot of chai but this one called to me. The sad thing is, it did so because it was Sherlock inspired. Seriously, these fandom blends are genius because I immediately want to support my fandoms and then have to stop myself from buying teas I KNOW I won’t drink. However, when I get the opportunity, I am still happy to try them out.
Tastewise, I get coconut and caramel with a hint of chai spices. The spices are nicely balanced though so I really don’t mind them at all. Not bad, though not something I personally need stocked. It is worth a try though :)
I had this one before in my first order of SBTs and it was good but there were much better ones. However, when I placed my second order, I knew this was something my brother would be into so I tossed it in. Of course when I have him the bag of SBTs to chose from, he went straight for this one. So now I am sipping on this banana tastiness. Yum!
In other news, I came home the other day to my mom’s friend sitting with a glass of this in front of her. She told me it was very good and asked what it was and without a moment’s hesitation I proudly said “Monkey Fart”. Her face was quite priceless :P
I tried this before and didn’t really like it but after I finished the sample, Roswell Strange discovered that this tastes good cold brewed. So, when I saw this in the box, I immediately set this up to cold brew and it is great. Delicious rhubarb vanilla flavor with just a hint of tea. The hops take a back seat and allow everything else to shine so this is definitely the way to go about drinking this tea. Going to bump up my rating because this makes a really refreshing cold brew.
