2369 Tasting Notes
Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this with me. I am not actually part of the Hannibal fandom so this is a tea I might have overlooked but I am glad I didn’t because this tastes good. Base? present, but mild. Caramel? Sweet, but not in your face. And hazelnut? Just a touch to round out the cup with a hint of nuttiness. With that said, I don’t know how quickly I would pick up 3 oz given this isn’t anything too unique but it certainly is one of the better Adagio blends I have had and am very excited to have more in my cupboard.
Thank you Roswell Strange but this is a tea I am not sad to see go. It was alright but really nothing special and certainly not something that could persuade me to deal with Teavana. I am grateful for the chance to try something that I never would have had otherwise though so thank you :)
Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. Weirdly enough, I think this may have actually grown on me. That doesn’t mean I am going out to buy this anytime soon but it is a little sad to see this go. It is coconut flavor combined with a hint of hibiscusy tartness to round things out.
So I have switched from 1% milk to skim milk and that has actually altered my matcha milk experience. For one, skim milk fluffs up a lot more than 1% which means you can’t get as much milk in the glass which throws off the matcha:milk ratio. Consequently, there was a stronger matcha flavor than usual which muted the caramel popcorn goodness. This lacked the tasty buttery richness that I love so much in this blend and the caramel was not as present as usual. It was still good but not the cup I have come to know and love :(
Thank you jump62359 for sending some of this my way. This is a great mint tea. Smooth, roasty, minty, and refreshing with just a hint of floral jasmin to round everything out. Really quite good though at the end of the day it is a mint tea and I just don’t reach for mint often enough to justify buying 3 oz. I will certainly enjoy my sample though.
Thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try something new. Having had it both hot and cold, I can say this is definitely better cold. The mango and lychee flavor come out much more whereas the base takes a back seat to the flavors. Good, not great but the rating will get bumped a bit because the cold brew is certainly an improvement.
I thought I wrote a review for this already but I guess not. So I will start by thanking the awesome jump62359 for sending this my way. The white base is very present in this cup in a leafy/buttery way while the peony comes through as a bit too floral and maybe a bit drying? It really is not as bad as that may sound but for my personal tastes, I am just not loving the cup. However, it is always fun to try something new so I am happy I got the chance to taste it :)
