359 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.
