2582 Tasting Notes
Not too much tea drinking today as I slept in super late and then got called to cover someone else’s shift at work but at least there is some time for a couple cups before bed. Sipping on this now, it is pleasant enough but not really something I will miss when I pass the rest of the sample on to Cavocorax. The strawberry is subtle but adds a nice sweetness to the cup while the green tea in the base helps lighten up the black tea. Thank you Sil for the chance to try this as it is definitely something that would have caught my eye and now I know it’s not something I would need to stock.
My hot cup completely cooled before I got a chance to try it so sipping on it cooled, I can only say my taste buds are confused. This is weird and I don’t know whether or not it’s weird in a good way. I definitely get creamy coconut and the ginger is there too but there are other flavors that are coming together to make one unique concoction that I think I am just too tired to wrap my head around. Luckily I have more of this in my cupboard so I will be able to explore more in the future.
This has cooled down quite a but because my sister was having a relationship crisis that she wanted to talk about. Cool, this tastes vegetal but not in the same way that most greens taste. Instead, it actually tastes like vegetables in liquid form with a but of underlying astringency. It isn’t bad but nothing I feel compelled to stock either. Thank you Sil for the sample. I look forward to seeing what Cavocorax has to say about this blend.
Every time I saw this reviewed, I would get really excited about it because everyone makes it sound so good but when I read the ingredients I lose interest because it is filled with a whole bunch of things I tend to avoid. However, when I was visiting Sil, she have me a sample so I could finally try it for myself. Sipping it now, I want to love it. I really, really do but I am getting a whole lot of cardamom, a little but of dark chocolate, and not much else. It’s not bad but it’s not something I personally would stock. Nonetheless, thank you Sil for the opportunity to see for myself what this tea is all about and I am especially grateful because I know how much of a fan you are :)
My Green Terrace Tea samples arrived today and I was so excited to come home and try this out. It is really a nice cup of tea. It’s velvety smooth with a delicious honey sweetness and a nice bit of malt. There is also a little touch of dried fruit, like raisins, to give this just a little but more depth. Yum! Thank you to the wonderful people at Green Terrace Teas for sending this my way :)
