2922 Tasting Notes
My old roommate went to Vancouver to visit our mutual friend over the holiday season and returned with a few teas for me. This is one of the ones she picked up and tonight I used it for my daily eggnog latte and it was great! It tasted like a slice of coconut cream pie with fresh sliced banana on top. Yum!
Made this last night as an eggnog latte and I am happy to announce that it was just as good at home as it is in store. And because it wasn’t all broken tea leaves from the bottom of the barrel like the last time I had it, this tasted like the fruity, creamy cup of deliciousness it is meant to be. Yum!
I really like Tippy’s black base in this tea – chocolatey and malt and really smooth. Then there is the pumpkin spice which is subtle and balanced but present enough that its clear this is more than just a black tea. It really is quite nice. I am been really impressed with this company so far so I am glad I still have more to try.
Cameron B mentioned bubblegum and she is spot on with that description. Somehow the rose floral and apple sweetness came together to make a weird bubblegum taste coupled with spices. It’s not my favorite though still fun to try, especially as brewed as an eggnog latte using my new milk frother in my new latte mug. Yay!
