1158 Tasting Notes
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
Backlog from yesterday.
I am not sure how this differs from the original version and one day I will have to do a comparison. This was delicious though. It was a little spicy which I wasn’t really expecting but I didn’t mind it. The vanilla adds a nice, smooth creaminess. The pumpkin is light, and I wish it was a little stronger. But, I didn’t add sweetener which would bring out the pumpkin more. Next time, I will add sweetener.
The oolong is nice and smooth. So comforting on a overcast cold day.
Oh this is so good. I picked up on honey notes right in the first sip. The malty chocolate notes develop at the end of the sip. I noticed some nutty notes in the aftertaste and wasn’t sure exactly what kind of nutty notes I was picking up on. When I looked at the description, I saw pecan and decided yes, that is the note I am tasting.
I find myself being drawn to straight teas more and more.
After a few days of not having any loose leaf teas and only drinking Keurig chai lattes, I am happy to have loose tea again.
I have never had lychee before but this is delicious. The first couple of sips of this tea were interesting. Tasting something for the first time is always exciting. As I continued to sip, I enjoyed it more and more. There are lots of fruity notes (which I assume to be the lychee). The floral notes are in the background and are subtle, but I find that they add depth to the tea.
Resteeped for 4.5 minutes was just as delicious, and I found that the floral notes came out a little more.
