388 Tasting Notes
My kindergarten classroom had scented magic markers. They were a lot of fun to draw with, mostly because of the scents. Who doesn’t like a raspberry scented marker?
Me. When my tea both tastes and smells like said marker.
Granted, subsequent cups were more fruit than writing implement, but it was too little too late. Happy to be finished with this one.
Had this with some sweet creamer because so many dessert teas are better with some milk and sugar. Very tasty. The chocolate is a little artificial, but it’s not particularly noticeable. With creamer, it’s like the chocolate flavor of a cake with the texture of icing. Pretty good, but my cup today at work was a bit drying.
I actually expected this to have a grenadine component to it. Isn’t that typical of Monk’s Blends?
To my surprise, I got a very nice milk Oolong, perfect for a super stressful week at work. I think I’ll pick up more of this next time I’m at DavidsTea. Or see if I can find the constituent parts elsewhere and make my own…
