1455 Tasting Notes
Definitely smells like a cinnamon bun. This would get a much higher rating from me, as would all of Della Terra’s offerings, if there were less ‘stuff’ in it. The added sweeteners and/or chocolate chips in many of their blends are just a huge deterrent. Having said that, this is a really close approximation of a cinnamon bun, although I get less cake and more creamy cinnamon and icing.
This medicinal is fantastic oversteeped, and I can see myself drinking it over and over again. It’s a mix of a variety of different things… I get a light mint, something berry/fruity (raspberry?), something mildly creamy, a touch of anise, something very woodsy too. I would LOVE to drink this while camping!
I like my medicinals to steep longer than recommended, however this one needs just a 5-10 minute steep. Why? Because all I’m getting is hibiscus and apple out of this one, with faint notes of other, muddled herbs in the background right now. Will steep this properly tonight and see if my rating changes.
Ah, Herbal Infusion’s Vanilla Cacao is a much more accurate and authentic version of xocolatl than this. This is just… meh. I think someone bought this for me and thus I’ve got it in the house. Should probably donate it, as it’s just outside my taste bud preference.
