1121 Tasting Notes
I was browsing through Sobeys when I saw that they had a bunch of tea on sale. $8 for 80g…sure I’ll try it. I bought this fully expecting that it wouldn’t be on Steepster. So I was surprised to see it here!
I was pleasantly surprised twitch this blend. I saw that there was roses in it, so I picked most of those out. The fig is something I have never seen in a fruit tisane before. I enjoyed it as a cold brew and I found the hibiscus wasn’t too overpowering here. It was sweet enough with no added sweetener. Not too bad!
Now I will have to cold brew the other tea I bought from Tea Squared—a flavoured green.
There is an articificial taste that I get that kind of tastes like the peach juice that I used to get as a kid from Tim Hortons. I’m not sure if they still have that juice or not but it is similar to a lot of cheap grocery store juice crystals.
I actually don’t mind that taste on occasion, I just have to keep in mind that it doesn’t taste very natural. I do enjoy this white mango tea though anyway.
This was actually a pretty decent cold brew. It was mildly pink but the hibiscus was fairly tame. The peach isn’t as strong as I was hoping but the orange is quite refreshing. I didn’t find that the licorice got out of hand either, it was fairly tame.
I would likely buy this again for cold brews this summer.
This was a free tea that I had iced in-store. I hardly ever get tea to go because I usually am heading home right after, so why would I pay extra to have them brew it there! It is convenient though, especially if you were going there on your lunch break or something. I am rambling…
Lime is ok for me, not one of my favourite flavourings, but something I don’t mind with chicken or black beans or something like that. I do enjoy the Lime Gelato tea occasionally though. This was ok. It was sweet enough that I feel it didn’t need sweetener. The mango could have been a little bit more prominent.
Overall, it is a decent tea, but I prefer Lime Gelato (and it’s cheaper too).
Hibiscus is sometimes a big miss for me, but it is ok in this fruit tea.
It is sweet and tart. Apple,melon, and lemon are the most prominent notes when I cold brewed this. It sat in my fridge for about 24 hours.
It is so refreshing! It might even be tin worthy this spring/summer, unless something better comes out in the summer collection. I need somthing caffeine free to cold brew in the spring/summer.
This tea smells fairly creamy. Unfortunately, it does not taste as creamy as it smells. For a milk oolong, I was expecting more “milk”. It is still enjoyable with buttery and floral notes. A little bit lacking for me today I’m afraid.
I need to play around with the parameters a bit more I think.
