347 Tasting Notes
Finished this off. I’m sad to see it go. It was great in my Libre.
It did not brew inky black despite only doing one steep, but it was a short four minutes (the steeping instructions gave you a range of four to six).
First sip is a good ginger. Still pretty hot, though. I’m getting pu’erh in the smell, though.
I only did four minutes, so I can understand why this is rather soft. I like it, though. The pu’erh isn’t too strong, but there, and I like the spicy ginger.
Chocolate in the smell, but not in the taste. I get very little of the spices as well, although I can smell them. Mostly getting the rooibos.
One of the four teas I received on Christmas.
I’m going to start by stating that I’ve never hate mate before. Sipping this, I get a powdery chocolate flavour, and a sort of deep taste, bakey—coca or mate, but it feels like a foreshadowing to the caffeine. Healthy energy drinkish.
There’s an almond scent (and a berry smell) that trails into the drink as well. Nice, sweet almond cocoa. Berry smell carries into the aftertaste, giving you… chocolately raspberries.
Looking through the ingredients, chicory—yes, I think that’s the bakey taste. It goes well with the cocoa.
Finished this off today. I might get more. I really liked it. The vanilla isn’t overpowering, and it matches very well with the vegetal matcha. Matcha doesn’t taste incredibly fresh, but I wouldn’t expect it to.
I got a milk frother a few months ago and enjoy adding the foam to this. Mm.
Welp, this’ the last of this. Saddd. But I’ll just have to go and get more.
I was a little worried when I opened the box and the smell was /overpoweringly/ mint. I was hoping for ‘minty vanilla green’ and it was just ‘MINT RAWR’.
But it brewed pleasant and vanillay and minty fresh. Mmmm.
Probably should have read some other reviews before getting it. It /is/ quite weak, but still enjoyable. Perhaps I’ll double-bag it next time. Hum.
Finished this off too.
Drinking this tea makes me so happy and so sad at the same time. I don’t ever want to run out of it, but I’ve only a few teaspoons left. Every time I drink it while in front of the computer, I have to run a search on google for sites that sell black tea grown in Arunachai Pradesh, India.
I never have any luck.
