520 Tasting Notes
I’ve been avoiding drinking this one for awhile because I thought for sure that it would be bad. as I opened up the package and interesting smell wafted to my nose. I’m still not quite sure of what it was or how I really felt about it. As it has begun to cool down, it’s actually tasting better than I thought. It’s almost like a smoothie.
I’ve been very tired lately. This new late-night work schedule is starting to wear on me… but it’s really nice to be able to be home more with my hubby and baby. AND why is that important to this review? because it is helping keep me in good spirits and to get through some work stuff.
The smell of roses immediately hits you when you open the package. And holy Moses it’s full of rose buds! So cute! And tasty. It’s a light flavor of roses. Or maybe I just didn’t put enough in? Regardless I’m enjoying this cup.
I love strawberries and oolong so this just seemed like a perfect fit. However, I’m not sure how i feel about this one. When first steeped it has an amazing fruity smell that jumps right out of the cup into your nostrils. But I feel that the oolong has a bit of a bitterness to it that kicks in to the aftertaste that I’m just not liking too much.
With a touch of honey i like it much more.
When done right this is so amazing. The first time I tried I messed it up pretty big. Wrong amount of matcha, wrong amount of milk… milk way to hot… It was pretty mad. But this time around I made sure to research what I was doing and I went to Ikea to pick up a frother. And it works great! Hopefully it lasts longer then things usually do from there…
Anyway. Great flavor. Even though it was a bit more bubbly then I meant to make it, it still tasted great. The caramel comes out so nice but still leaves room for you to taste the green tea. So much yum.
Flavors: Caramel, Cream
This is a very unique chai. I was having the darnedest time trying to pin down what flavor it reminded me of until I read the other reviews. The sweetness of the almond really threw me off. But in a good way. This would be really good in a muffin of some sort. I love to cook with tea
