2261 Tasting Notes
This is a pleasant black tea. It has a strong tea base with hints of almost berries and smoke to me. Good but not something I need stocked as I am starting to realize I am still in a transition stage when it comes to my tastes which means I am more prone to like the desserty blacks with malt and caramel and chocolate. Consequently, though I can recognize this is quite good, I don’t think I am at the point in my tea journey yet where I can personally appreciate it. I am grateful to have gotten to try it though.
This is the last of my Bluebird samples from the amazing Nattie!! Thank you! This one is really nice. The lime is bright and refreshing without making the cup sour and the mint is fresh and delightful. However, the flavors as a whole are a bit subtle so it takes a little bit of focus to truly appreciate the flavors but this certainly has potential.
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 :)
