767 Tasting Notes
Thanks to KallieBoo! for a sample of this in our mystery swap!
I don’t drink matcha very often even though I have 2 flavours from Red Leaf. I guess it is because I am not the biggest fan of green teas. However, I find flavoured matchas to be quite lovely.
This one is kind of weird. It tastes very much like bubblegum, the kind that I used to chew as a kid and blow huge bubbles with. But….it is super weird to drink bubble gum.
This tea was pretty good. Yesterday I had wrote the brewing parameters on the bag. So when I brewed this up today, I didn’t look at the ingredients. I usually try not to read ingredients or tasting notes before I try a tea so I can just taste the tea and not worry about whether I am tasting certain ingredients and such.
Anyway, as I was drinking this tea, I was picking up on a lot of citrus notes. I thought my palate was off, but then u checked the ingredients, and it said orange peels…. Good, I’m not crazy.
I found this to be a decent oolong, but I think I would prefer caramel flavours without the citrus.
Day 2 of the 12 days of Christmas. I probably would not have ordered this for myself, so I am glad that I got to try it in this box!
It was ok hot, but cold is where this tea shines (who likes hot root beer anyway?). It tastes very much like root beer. There is also the ice cream with sweet vanilla. Delicious tea. I might pick some up in the summer as an iced tea if it’s available sometime.
Day 1 of the 12 days of Christmas sampler. I am assuming everyone would have opened it by now and I am not ruining the suprise for anyone.
I brewed this up fully expecting not to like this tea because I am not much of a fan of spicy things. However, I actually really enjoy this. The green base is lost in all the cinnamon and spice but that’s ok with me because greens are usually my least preferable tea anyway. It isn’t quite as spicy as I thought it would be.
And “The Hobbit” is awesome. I want to go see the new one soon!
80 degrees for 3 minutes
I love chocolate, so of course I would order this tea. I am actually being overwhelmed by tea! And my verdant and Butiki orders haven’t even arrived yet! Just my zen tea and Della terra orders have come so far.
Anyway, back to the tea. The marshmallow was probably the most prominent note followed by graham cracker and then a little hint of chocolate. I would have liked the chocolate to be more prevalent, but this is very enjoyable nonetheless.
Sipdown of this tonight. I actually mixed it with my remaining amount if birthday cake to make up a pot to have with the inlaws. I didn’t have enough of either tea on its own, so I combined them. The flavours are similar enough that they mixed together ok. I enjoyed this tea while I had it when I wanted something sweet. It saved me from wanting dessert (which usually means a lot of calories) at least.
I am not too sad that it’s gone though.
