6770 Tasting Notes
I feel bad because I drank this yesterday and forgot to log and now I can’t view it on the site. I couldn’t find it on steepster, either, so I am creating a new one, now.
This was fruity-bitter. A fairly strong base. I don’t think I will give it a rating because I didn’t write down appropriate notes for this tasting log and I usually do. It was ok but not my favorite from them.
I had some of this earlier and it’s mixed with Teavana’s Rock Sugar already. As I don’t usually add things to my teas I might not be the best judge on this flavor so I will not rate it. Here are some of my findings, tho…
I thought the chai spices were present but also interrupted by the tropical fruits such as the pineapple. I also thought it was interrupted by the rock sugar. It was spicy but it was also very sweet. It was tropical but it was herbally. It was carob like but it was rooibos-eques as well as mate-based, AND oolong based. It just seems like there was too much jammed into this one to make it awesome. Having said that…it’s not awful, just not my fave. Too many interruptions for my tongue but I’m sure good on someone elses.
This tastes a little ‘burnt’ maybe I infused it a bit too long. It’s not bad, tho. I can’t really identify the Earl Grey in this – maybe a bit of the bergamot from it but not much. I can taste the berry more-so. I can’t really taste the vanilla, much, either. It has a bit of a soapy taste to it as it lingers. It’s so-so.
Sure, this one tastes like Darjeeling but with a slightly-bitter/tart type fruity flavor…somewhat compared to a currant, perhaps? Plus it has a carob sort of hint to it. I wouldn’t say Chocolate, Cocoa, or even cacao…closer to carob to my tongue. It has a woodsy lingering flavor. It’s more of a masculine darjeeling than some I have had lately. And it lingers way more than I anticipate. This is ok but not my favorite dajeeling-type to sip.
