301 Tasting Notes
This is a strange one… The smell is delicious, but it seems like I’m getting a different taste with every sip, haha. I like cranberry, and I like orange, and I like muffins. I’ve had numerous cranberry orange muffins in my time, and this tea doesn’t really taste like any I’ve had. Maybe it’s the addition of the dandelion and hibiscus doing strange things? I only got 10g of this to try, so maybe there’s more of those ingredients there, or something. And those 10g only got me one cup of tea (minus a resteep, if I so choose), so that’s also a negative. Not enough bang for my buck, I don’t think.
Hello, ginger! I was excited to try this one, though I had reservations about this tasting too similar to Super Ginger. It’s still spicy, but a little sweeter, which is probably due to the apple. I liked this one, but I don’t know if it’s a must-keep for me. I usually only drink Super Ginger when I’m sick, and since this tastes very similar to it (at least to me), I cannot help but associate this with being sick. Which is unfortunate. >_>
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.
