1118 Tasting Notes
I thought I had reviewed this sample previously…hmm.
I enjoyed this tea. It is slightly floral and malty with a slightly sweet aftertaste. It is not at all astringent or bitter.
I think I will try a longer brew next time to see what happens. I am not sure that I would purchase this as there are a large number of straight blacks that I prefer (like Teavivre’s black pearls), but it was enjoyable.
I am trying to use up my oldest tea up first which is hard sometimes when that tea is no longer in season. I don’t usually drink pumpkin teas in spring/summer. I have cold brewing everything lately, so I thought I would try it out.
This was just weird. Cold pumpkin tea???? It was alright but just too weird. I might have to save this for fall
I have really been on a cold brew kick lately and thought I would give this one a try for the heck of it. This turned out really good actually. I was looking for something a little sweeter and this was just perfect for my mood. I think you would have to be wanting something sweet for this to work though. It was a little nutty and the woodiness of the rooibos is tamed a little by cold brewing it.
This is a super old tea, a year past its “best before” date but it is still so good, I just can’t bring myself to throw it out. I could go to chapters and get a new tin but I guess I am a bit of a hoarder. I also might save those harney tins and use them for windowsill herbs!
Anyway, I wanted to try this as a cold brew because I really have to use this up and figured I might as well try it. I used 2 bags for my Aladdin tumbler. It was of course, delicious!! It tastes sweeter somehow? than the hot brew….I think. I will have to do a side by side comparison I think.
I forgot to log that I finally ordered this tea after wanting to try it for so long! And boy, I am glad I ordered it because I just finished off my favourite Assam. This isn’t quite as delicious as my favourite but it’s pretty darn close. The tin is awesome with great graphics, but it is a little hard to pry open. It’s worth it I guess for the tea to stay fresh!
Anyway, I really enjoy this smooth, malty cuppa breakfast deliciousness. It will likely become a cupboard staple from now on!
I didn’t have high hopes with this tea because DT has been disappointing me a bit lately with their “must add stevia to everything”. But, this wS a pretty good cold brew. It did taste fairly naturally like pomegranate. The stevia and hibiscus were fairly tame (but still a little too present unfortunately).
The last remaining sample from my swap with Evol Ving Ness, thanks again, it was fun!
I enjoyed this fruity chai and I can see why it is called holiday blend. It would make a delicious latte during the Christmas season on a cold day wrapped up in a warm blanket. Maybe not my favourite during the spring/summer months but still good!
