147 Tasting Notes
I came home today to find my first traveling tea box on my doorstep. It’s been very rainy here lately, so the box was a bit wet, but I don’t think it made it through to the inside of the box and everything is in plastic anyway, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Since I’ll be heading to bed soon, I decided to give one of the herbal teas a try, and this sounded very appealing.
The brewed tea smells like butterscotch, and it mostly tastes like it too. I almost feel like it’s too sweet for this time of day. I’m not getting any nutty or chocolatey flavors, which is a shame. It seems like they would balance the sweetness a bit. The tea has a bit of a licorice aftertaste, which doesn’t blend very well with the butterscotch. Overall, it’s a bit disappointing. It doesn’t live up to it’s name.
Flavors: Butterscotch, Licorice
I had this at my in-laws house yesterday. It was pretty good. Relatively mild for a ginger tea, and the lemon complemented the ginger well. I do wish the lemon flavor had been a bit stronger. This is probably not my favorite lemon and ginger tea, but it’s definitely one I would be willing to drink again.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
This is not bad for a rooibos tea. It has a bit of that smokey/medicinal flavor, but for the most part it tastes very much like strawberry jam. It’s sweet with a bit of tartness, and has a very pleasant strawberry flavor. The strawberry and rooibos flavors actually blend surprisingly well, too. I don’t know that I’ll buy more of this, but I’ll enjoy drinking this cup.
Flavors: Jam, Rooibos, Smoke, Strawberry, Sweet, Tart
This is just not my day for sampling teas. This is minty and somewhat fruity, but I don’t like the way the flavors interact. It’s just kind of weird. It seems I don’t like many of Stash’s fruit flavored herbals.
Flavors: Fruity, Mint
