70 Tasting Notes
Finally, a new flavour to try! I was looking for something new to try iced today (and not from the spring collection, as I’m getting that in the mail soon) and this was the tea of the day. I loved this – nice and tart and delicious. I’m not a huge fan of ginger in my tea, but the amount in this was good enough for me. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go for this one hot, but as an iced blend this was a winner.
I’m not sure if I liked this more than Salted Caramel, but it does taste very similar – which is a good thing! I couldn’t put my cup down – I also added a bit of skim milk and I got none of that straight up rooibos taste that I am always a little fearful of when I’m drinking rooibos blends. A very nice dessert tea – even if I did have mine first thing in the morning! Oh well. :]
When I heard this one was back for a limited time only, I knew I had to try it on my visit today. Admittedly, I’m not a fan of cherries, or cherry flavoured things, but I guess the inclusion of some other ingredients helped to balance out the cherry to a more mild taste that I actually liked! It did smell heavenly while in my cup, so I will definitely give it that. If only it wasn’t so expensive – the only downfall of white teas!
I’m pretty sure by now I’ve sampled all of the white teas at my DT store by now, haha. This one I liked, but wasn’t overly blown away by. I think it had to do with the hint of licorice – not one of my favourite flavours. But I do like almond, and thankfully the taste of that overrode that of the licorice.
