404 Tasting Notes
Very smooth. Good hot, warm, and cold. No harsh after taste. In fact, not much after taste at all. It just ends on a fine note and leaves you wanting another sip. This one is for all you Earl Grey lovers. Besides Chamomile, the in-room tea that I brought back with me also included Earl Grey and this one is very pleasent. Not too over powering and has the right blend of Bergamot and black tea. Perfect for a day like today where it’s raining, thundering and getting increasingly darker. (Is thundering a word? What an odd one that is)
Another TJmaxx find. When something says passion fruit or Lilikoi on it I feel that I have to try it. I’m not a terribly huge fan of Tulsi for their taste but they do have a good company. It’s also the types of teas that I find are good to drink when your not feeling well. This one I bought purely for the passion fruit flavor. All I tasted was tulsi with slight hints of Passion fruit. it was good regardless but I wished they added more passion fruit in.
Dry. I don’t really understand how a tea can leave your mouth feeling dry but this one is good at doing that. The taste overall isn’t anything special. But then again as you all know, I’m not especially fond of English Breakfast Tea. But I will still keep drinking it in hopes of one day finding one that I don’t think is bland.
Today is St. Patty’s Day. It’s the first tea I thought of to drink. A little cliche I know but whatever. Even though I don’t think it’s close to what they drink in Ireland (see link below) I still think its good. It has an interesting grassy, chocolate-y, minty flavor to it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Grass
I have to start making a list of who sent me what. I go on my trips and bring some with and now I can’t remember who sent me what.
Anyway, this tea is good. If you like apricots, even if they give you gas, you should try this tea out. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this tea but as soon as I steeped the tea that wonderful apricot scent came forth and I was like… whoa. It has cooled down quite a bit since breakfast but it still tastes quite good. The black tea does over power the apricot slightly but in a good way. Making sure it’s presence stays known I suppose.
Usually I’m not a big fan of teas that just use flavoring and not the actual ingredient, such as this tea, but this one is pretty good. They use a good black tea to blend with the other flavors. This tea is good hot and cold.
I’m going to have to try to put some of my own dried mango in when I steep it to see how the flavor changes.
