294 Tasting Notes

I received this from Azzrian as a thankful for the iced tea swap.

I can’t place what the dry notes smell like, although it smells good, a unique smell I think.
As it steeps it smells of lemon. I had this iced, since it is a lemonade flavour. I added a wee blip of honey to it.
Once Iced it tastes just as the dry notes smell. I can’t for the life of my think of what it may taste like. It’s different, but a good different. It’s really too bad that this is gone. It would make the perfect all summer long iced tea.

So glad you liked it!

drank Gingerbread Chai by 52teas
294 tasting notes

I got this in a swap from Emilie.

I made this on the stove!

It definetly smelt like gingerbread… & even had that almost dry taste/feeling that real gingerbread has. I feel there is something amiss with it though. It’s still good & I will drink it, I just can’t place what is off. Maybe it’s one of the spices.

I’m not sure what the Pledge talk is all about or the hate for this tea. I actually quite like it. I had it iced & it’s nice & light. It’s definetly reminiscent of something else but I can’t place it (& it sure isn’t pledge).
I had to add a little honey which I usually do with greens. It has a touch of green tea taste, but is many citrus.

I got this in a sampler pack from iheartteas
It smells nicely sweet, a little like honey bush.
Once steeped it smells like real watermelon. I poured it over ice. It tastes slightly like watermelon, but more ‘green’ tasting. Overall it was alright, but not something I would buy.

I got this in the flat rate box I bought from emilie
I brewed this up as a latte on the stove, my home smells fantastic. On first sip I got a soapy taste but after that I could taste all the spices but not the chocolate. The spices really linger on the tongue when the tea is hot.
There was a familiar taste to this tea but I just couldn’t place it and then it came to me, Ginger snaps! Oh how I miss those little round Ginger snaps, I think I’m going to have to buy some now. If without the milk and touch of honey this still tastes like Ginger snaps I’m going to have to add this to my cupboard.

I received this in a swap from tigress_al
It smells so good, minty & creamy. I’m not sure what all the talk about dirt, fish etc is.
Once steeped it smells even more creamy & delicious, oh I hope it tastes just like it smells.
Alas it does not, it is decently minty tea, with a light tea base & an aftertaste. It’s decent, but not as delicious as it could be.

I got this in a swap a while back. It smells very nice & fruity. It steeps to a nice pink/red colour.
I love the flavours of this tea, but often find it is a little too light in taste. It has become one of my fav teas to ice though.

I made this iced, to me an Orange Creamsicle can only be iced.
The dry notes smell just like an orange creamsicle, so potent & sweet. Once steeped it still smells like this, the rooibos starts to come out though. I think by now we know I don’t like rooibos teas, but I had to try this.
There is only the slightest hint of orange creamsicle in it, thankfully though the rooibos isn’t strong & I will be able to finish the pitcher of it.

I got this in a sampler pack from iheartteas in early June and I am only now tasting it. The dry notes smell like banana bread. my nanny makes THE best banana bread.
once steeped I get a touch of artificial banana smell. it’s smelling more like banana bread now.
First sip and all I get is strong black base eek. Let’s see if this changes as it cools… I’m getting some artificial banana taste and that’s it.

I received this in a swap from Darby. White chocolate is my fav type of chocolate, so creamy so sweet, delicious.
This is definitely one spicy smelling chai, that is however the only smell I am getting. I love the white chips in it. I had to add a few more because I just knew that the few small chips wouldn’t make enough of a white chocolate difference, so I did.
Upon pouring it has a very creamy like colour ohh should be yummy.
Wow this has to be the spiciest chai I have tasted, one of the spices comes out at the front I just can’t quite place it, maybe nutmeg. It’s also creamy I think from my added white chips, although I am getting no white chocolate flavour. Perhaps a little honey would bring it out. As this tea sits and cools slightly it looses the creaminess and becomes bitter. Unfortunetly I can’t chug a hot cup of tea.
