2677 Tasting Notes
I iced the rest of my sample from Scheherazade and though there is a touch more apple and a hint of caramel, the honeybush still takes over. I am left feeling really happy I didn’t buy the pouch of this because this sample was more than enough for me. So long caramel apple honeybush, our relationship has run its course. 153.
I had high hopes for this one but I am just not loving it. Mostly I get the honeybush and the cinnamon. Every now and then notes of pumpkin show up for just a second but for some reason this just isn’t working. Nonetheless, thank you Scheherazade for sharing as this is one I was really interested in and would have bought in larger quantities if I hadn’t sampled it first. 155.
When I got this, I hoped it would be a bit lighter than the caramel and honey one given the fruity flavor. However this is just as rich which means you really have to be in the mood for it to enjoy the cup. Typically I am just not looking for something so dense when I am drinking caffeine free so this won’t be a restock. Still, it was fun to try. 157.
Thank you for sharing Scheherazade. This is interesting as it is supposed to be a green rooibos with mixed berries and rose but all I am getting is the rooibos and rose. Every now and then a touch of raspberry tartness might sneak in but in a blind taste test, I would not have guessed the ingredients in this blend. Still, it’s always fun to try new things. 158.
I considered buying a package of this tea but now that I have tried it, I am glad I did not. This tastes mainly of honeybush with just a touch of candy apple the pops up now and again. I still have more to play with thanks to Scheherazade’s generosity so hopefully a different preparation method might bring out the flavors a bit more.
Well Sun Moon Lake Assam, we meet again and I am very happy about that. This really is a great black. Fruity and smooth with the faintest touch of malt. Thank you Sil for sending more of this my way. I think I will take one more cup and pass the rest on to Roswell Strange. Hopefully she also enjoys it :)
