355 Tasting Notes
I got this one as part of a sampler that I still haven’t tried. A year after getting it. Yikes! In an effort to try/drink up some of my older teas, this one (along with its sampler and another untouched sampler) have been packed up for work.
This was not bitter as I expected it to be. It’s vaguely sweet with a faint tropical fruit flavor. I get hints of coconut, but none of the other fruits that are supposed to be in this blend. I like it, but I don’t think it’s something I’ll need to restock once my sample is finished.
Flavors: Coconut, Sweet
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.
