2078 Tasting Notes
Ugh I’ve had the worst luck lately with coconut going bad in teas before I have the chance to try them. Again, this is only a few months old. I taste mostly bad coconut, even though I threw away all the visible pieces before steeping. I also taste ginger and rooibos. Almond milk tastes nice in there and smooths things out a bit. It’s fine, but not special.
This tea from the Reddit TTB had terrible packaging – teabags sitting in a thin cardboard box. They’re all dried out and sad looking, but I figured I’d try one anyway. The only ingredient is lemon balm, and it looks like this operation is run from someone’s home, which is fun. I’m drinking it cold, and I’m happy to say that the flavor is actually super fresh and nice. It doesn’t even need sugar. It’s plant-like in just the right way. I’m glad I saved a few bags for later.
Of course, it was natural to compare this to S&V’s snickerdoodle tea, which is one of my absolute favorites. Compared to that…this one is quite plain. I taste the same sweet cinnamon flavor, but behind that is basically nothing. Maybe a bit of black tea, but mostly emptiness. Thanks for sharing, amandastory516!
I drank this sweetened cold. I definitely taste the strawberry, along with some gentle little ingredients that make it somewhat reminiscent of bubbles. I prefer a heftier black tea, so this isn’t my favorite. It feels almost weak or thin. However, I do feel like this flavor would be fantastic on a green rooibos base or maybe as a green tea.
I’m not a coconut fan, but I actually love the flavor they accomplished here. The coconut is light, but it blends perfectly with this base. The base is lighter and more enjoyable than some of the other Teeccino teas as well. The flavor is so desserty, and the second steep tasted just like the first. I’d consider buying a larger amount next time!
Ha, I love trying different EGs, but I have to echo what other people mentioned and say that this one tastes like dirt. I also taste a pretty decent blueberry. I think adding almond milk helped this taste like drinkable dirt…but still not desirable. Thanks for giving me the chance to try this, Cameron B!
