791 Tasting Notes
For some reason, I thought this was a green tea, so I brewed it up this afternoon. I didn’t realize it was a black tea until I had already put the tea in my steeper and boiled the water. But as the tea boiled and I poured it over my leaves, I thought wait a minute…..boiling water on green tea?? And then I looked at the description and saw black tea.
It is really late in the day for me to be having black tea, so I just took a couple of sips. The rest is going into the fridge to try cold.
Anyway, about the taste of the tea….this tea is delicious. Of course, I love chocolate! The orange is fresh and tasty. The marshmallow adds a pinch of sweetness. This is a decadent treat.
Mmmm, roasty! This oolong definitely has natural notes and honey and fruitiness. I am not sure if I would have picked out an “apple” note, but it is fruity anyway. There is also a nuttiness in the roasty notes of this wonderful oolong.
It was snowing pretty heavily when I was enjoying this cuppa. So, I have no problem staying in with my baby and having a snow day! Brrr
Resteep at 4 minutes was just as delicious!
I find the chocolate in this tea is a little more like dark chocolate than milk chocolate, which I enjoy. There is a touch of astringency which I assume comes from the black base. The raspberry is a delicious pairing with the chocolate.
I always try my teas without additions first, but I think I might add a little sweetener next time to see how this changes the tea.
I am finally having this tea, I was not able to brew up tea on Christmas day properly, so I didn’t even bother. I just used my mom’s keurig to make chai lattes.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the 12 days of tea, the anticipation of scratching the bag every day.
This tea was ok, light white tea taste. I am not sure what a sugar plum tastes like, but I am getting a plum-like fruitiness that is pretty subtle. I think this tea needs sweetener though.
I am not a coffee fan, but I was very curious about this mate. It actually isn’t too bad. The berries are kind of a nice touch. However, I don’t like coffee so I probably wouldn’t drink this. I just bought enough for 2 cups, which I am glad about. Maybe I will give the rest to my friend who drinks coffee and try to convert her to tea! Mhwahahaha
