511 Tasting Notes
I’m out with Lance going to some doctor appointments we had a little time between 2 appointments so we stopped by a Cups Espresso Cafe.
I’d much rather make my own tea but since we were out I decided I would try the London Fog.
I’ve made the “London Fog” at home a few times but I’ve never had one while out before.
I didn’t expect very much but Oh My! this one is wonderful!! Sweet creamy Vanilla Early Grey goodness.
I like it a lot, too expensive tho :)
Sipping on this one now, I don’t usually buy bottles teas from the store but this one is not bad, its actually pretty good for a bottled sweet tea.
It is quite sweet tho.
I’m drinking it now with Simply Limeade mixed in with it 50/50, its pretty good, like a Lime Arnold Palmer.
The lime in there is quite nice, very refreshing and not bad at all, Not something I would do very often tho.
I’d rather have a Milo’s sweet tea tho if i had to have a bottled tea.
I had the Campfire Blend with a little added maple syrup and it was omg so good.
I reminded me of the outdoors so much I had to step outside and to enjoy a cup.
I got so much cedar and piney notes with earthy sweet notes and of course wonderful smokey notes, the maple sweetness really enhanced the cedar and smokiness.
Oh this is so good :)
The only thing missing now is a campfire and some colder weather, still a great outdoor tea.
Oh My, So smooth and creamy almost buttery even,mmmmm.
Very nice and bold with malty, cocoa notes and honey notes with smooth floral vanilla and just the right amount of spice.
The spice level on this one is just perfect.
I can’t believe how smooth and creamy this one is, it needs no milk or sweetener at all because it is perfect on its own.
I did decide to add a little maple syrup to it just because and it was omg so delicious BUT a bit much for me at first because I used a bit too much the first time. After using less maple the second time around it was perfection.
The maple made it very sweet and even more creamy somehow, the maple sweetness brought about a chocolatey note that is different than the dark chocolatey notes of some of brendens teas and it totally enhanced the Vanilla and made it stand out much more.
The chocolatey notes of this one with sweetener is like a milk chocolate donut or something, omg so good.
Milk chocolate donut with chai spice on top, mmmmmmm so good.
The perfect balance of the ginger and other spices toned down by the vanilla make this a perfect chai on its own and allow it to be subtly sweetened without being too bold like some chais, Some sweet chais give my a slight belly ache from the sweet spicy combo, Not this one!
Totally Awesome on it’s own but if ya sweeten it do try some Maple Syrup, oh my so good.
Thanks BOYCHIK for mentioning Maple Syrup in your review! Great Idea!!!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cocoa, Honey, Malt, Spices, Vanilla
I was excepting something different and exotic with the Yak Butter but it wasn’t much different from the milk teas I was having earlier.
I’m not sure what yak butter tea suppose to taste like, I’ve only had cow and goat butter teas, it don’t really taste much like a butter tea to me, but it does have a buttery smooth kinda mouthfeel.
It has that same little twang that all these instant milky teas have and it’s super creamy and smooth and not too sweet, not quite as sweet as the milk teas.
I didn’t get the salty one, I want to try it now tho :)
Ok So I maybe i’m a bit carried away this morning with the instant powder milk teas but they are yummy to me, except this one.
I know I need to stop but I decided I wanted just ONE more then I’d be happy :)
This one was NOT that one more and did NOT make me happy at all.
It is horrible and bitter and just gross, even extra sugar couldn’t help this one, just nasty :(
Straight Down The Drain with this one!
Now I still want just ONE more lol
So while I was try to post about the last milk tea i was having Steepster decided to be down,I didn’t get the kettle messages instead this time down for maintinance and Steepster suggested that I have another cup, I said OK and picked up another one of the little instant packages:)
This one is delicious. Its creamy and sweet and just yummy.
Not much else to say really, its like most other tasty instant milk tea powders.
I can add that one thing I notice about these instant milk teas is that they all share a common something in the taste that just screams this is instant! not in a bad way at all tho in fact this one is super good, I think it is just some taste that prolly comes from the powdered milk or whatever they use in these, kind of like a slight twangy taste in there that is hardly worth mention.
Anyways this one is super tasty, creamy, sweet and smooth, as are most others I’ve had.
Flavors: Creamy, Smooth, Sweet
While It is Not 3:15 pm I decided to have some of this one today, It’s a lazy Sunday and i just felt like an easy instant milk tea :)
I’m not sure how the Tea Community here on Steepster feels about these instant powdered teas like this but I don’t mind the instant Milk Teas I think they are pretty tasty.
This one is made with coffee so instead of just being a powder it comes in a small tea bag with coffee grains added to that instant milk tea powder. I assumed that coffee need to steep just a bit so I leave the bag of this one in the for 3 minutes 15 seconds just because lol.
The taste is like coffee with milk and sugar almost like one of those coffee nips candies but the taste of a bold roasty tea is also present. It is kinda sweet without being too sweet and not bitter at all like some coffee drinks can be.
Lance and I both really enjoy this one from time to time just because it tastes really good, I’m not sure how healthy the instant drinks are but we like it for the taste and I think thats just fine :)
I have lots of these lttle instand milk teas packets of all different types, we pick some up at our local asian mart every time we visit, they are not very expensive tho they aren’t exactly cheap either, they are worth it.
This one is just creamy sweet coffee with a roasty toasty tea, simple and tasty, not really much else to say about it.
Flavors: Coffee, Creamy, Roasted, Sweet
