1120 Tasting Notes
How have I never had this tea before?
It’s no secret that I love chocolate and this seemed perfect to have it on Valentine’s Day. It was good, sweet chocolate and coconut. I didn’t find notes of pecan, but that’s ok because it was good anyway.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I needed something caramel like today, I opened my cupboard and this one shouted out to me. Mmmm
Non tea review related:
I received a brand new Bonavita kettle in the mail yesterday after contacting the company due to my faulty first model. It wouldn’t even boil water—-what kind of a kettle doesn’t even boil water? Lol. Anyway, this one works!!!
I was hesitant to pick this up because of Rose being one of the ingredients. I thought I would try it anyway. This is pretty decent, kind of a lot of different flavours going on though. In some weird way, the flavours kinda work, almost like a hot floral fruit punch. It sounds weird though doesn’t it!!
No idea where the name comes from though…the brew isn’t pink—-the roses maybe? IDK.
I have been drinking this one the last couple of weeks with just a piece or two of brown crystal sugar. Does anyone know where else to get the brown crystal sugar that Butiki used to sell? It is so convenient to use.
Anyway, I actually enjoyed this tea more as it aged because it seemed that the mocha notes slipped into the background, making way for the butterscotch and hazelnut to come to the forefront. The White Rhino base was delicious of course. I miss that tea too.
Mmm so glad to have this one back in my cupboard. I actually re-stocked my tin of this in November but for some reason, I am only getting around to drinking it now. I guess I forgot about it :(. It is sweet (but not too sweet) and creamy. It is a darker chocolate, which I really enjoy.
