338 Tasting Notes
This has been keeping me company through a week of training. And it’s true to its name. I made French toast from scratch last weekend and this tea tastes like the egg/cinnamon/nutmeg mixture I soaked the bread in. It’s warm and comforting, especially with some sugar and a little bit of milk.
I was really excited when I first read the description for this one. It sounded minty and creamy – a perfect bedtime tea. The actual experience leaves something to be desired, however. The coconut is there, but not always and the mint varies between tolerable and overwhelming. I liked this a lot better as a work tea than as a tea I brewed at home.
Probably my favorite out of my Short and Stout samples. The chocolate is there, sometimes candy bar delicious and other times just Tootsie Rolls. I feel like this one is perfect for milk and sugar, but I don’t have any milk at work and I should probably swear off sugar for the day in deference to all the Oreos I’ve had today.
(But seriously – Cinnamon Roll Oreos are irresistible especially when one of your coworkers brought them in as a morale boosting treat!)
It’s good, but probably not something I’d restock unless it was super convenient to do so.
Another sample slated for the work tea pile.
I don’t like this one. It’s drinkable and not bad overall, but I’m getting a lot of floral flavors with a hint of tartness that might be the pear. Not what I was expecting from a pear tea. Where’s the juicy, fruity goodness?
This isn’t something I’ll be replacing once my sample is gone.
Over the weekend I packed up twelve different teas to take to work with me. Most of these were samples I’ve neglected and would like to use up as my cupboard is starting to overwhelm me. This was one of the samples I packed up.
I massively overstepped this – ever thought you’d removed your infuser from the cup when you really forgot to? Yeah… The good news is that this one didn’t get bitter despite a ten minute steep time. The lime was very pleasant and biting, though, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Lime teas should have lime front and center, don’t you think?
