258 Tasting Notes
I had this as a to-go from Pearson Airport bright and early yesterday morning, haha. After travelling for nearly two days (most of that spent on a plane), you’re damn right I was going to try a mate… And I liked this one! I’m kind of vary on mate blends due to the earthiness sometimes doing weird things with flavouring, but whatever was done to this one – yum!
Very mild blueberry flavour to this one – likely due to the white tea base. I think it’s a bit too mild for my taste (I do like my fruit teas to be stronger, as a whole), but as an organic tea, I’m certainly happy to have tried it. I wouldn’t say this is a definite must purchase again, but I will keep it in mind.
Happily surprised by this one! My love for chocolate teas has decreased significantly because I’ve realised I really don’t like teas overly sweet. This one has a nice blend of the chocolate and the spices and worked really well with milk. I just wish I wasn’t drinking it in July, haha. The weather here lately has been absolutely terrible and cold and I’ve been drinking far more hot teas than I normally would. I don’t think I’ve ever drank chai in the summer before, and I’ve after having it a bunch of times already this week.
I think I was expecting more out of this one – a bolder flavour, to be sure. It smelled wonderful, and I steeped it for a long time, but it was still too mild. Sigh. I do love peach and ginger separately, and I was excited to try a tea where they were combined, and while this was still pleasant to drink, this was a bit of a let down. :/
Floral teas are another questionable experience for me, but this one wasn’t bad! I’m wary of drinking most black tea blends sans milk, but I can’t drink floral blends with it, haha. So straight up was what I went for this – a decent cup, I have to say! I don’t know if I’d buy this one on my own, but I’m definitely glad I tried this.
I approach all coconut teas with caution, and I have to say that this one was pretty good. I do like my chais bold, and this one was definitely milder than what I prefer. However, that also meant that the coconut wasn’t as strong, either, which for me is a good thing. This reminds me of Coco Chai Rooibos from DT, though this has a different base. All in all, I’m pleased with this sample, and I look forward to trying the rest.
