739 Tasting Notes
I need more pumpkin mate in my life. Or even just more pumpkin! I love the spicy notes I’m getting. Very similar to butternut squash soup spices. Don’t ask me which ones those are because my brain isn’t that awake yet. So I taste butternut squash, pumpkin and spice. It makes a great tea. I hope they bring this one back.
Flavors: Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, Spices
After sending my relief home for being sick (Food poisoning apparently). I worked a 12hr shift instead of the usual 8. So by the time I woke up for my next shift (now) I was still a bit too sleepy to make a proper tea. Luckily I always have this on hand for those type of occasions. Toss 8oz in then 8oz of milk and I have something to drink ready to go. (midnight into 4 hrs of day shift)
I need energy! It’s the first midnight shift after doing evening shifts for a week so I’m feeling a bit laggy. So I made a cup of this. Orange, Lemon citrus caffeine boost. Oh there was also a little bit of the honeydew matcha still in my cup when I made this… it kindof softens the flavour a bit.
I tried this cold from David’s Tea and it’s tart and berry tasting. I couldn’t really pick up on anything specific and it wasn’t terrible.. it’s just not something I would order again. I do have a sample of it from the sale bin though and I will try it at home because maybe I just don’t like the way it was made.
Today is a mate day. At least if I want to stay awake that is. I cycled a few extra kms just to get my Harte Trail badge in Ingress. Totally worth it but I didn’t get to bed until a bit after midnight. Then the thunderstorm woke me up this morning (stupid loud thunder!) so a nice pumpkinny mate is just what I need.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
Made my final cup of this one for the ride to work. I made this one cold and it definitely changed things a bit. The flavour is less intense then when you make it hot. It’s still there it’s just not smacking you in the head anymore which is actually nice. While I won’t buy more because I’m tired of it, I still recommend it for people who love cotton candy.
