336 Tasting Notes
Trying to get back in the swing of drinking and reviewing teas. I HAVE been drinking tea, just haven’t been telling you guys about it!
I won some Tea’s Tea a few years ago, and haven’t really seen them since. But I found this a few weeks ago in my grocery store and wanted to give it another go. Just like last time, I’m always surprised that this isn’t extremely sweet, even though I’m pretty sure it says that on the bottle.
There isn’t a ton of flavor, but there is enough for it to not be water. The jasmine gets a bit bitter at the end of the sip, but overall this is a nice iced tea
Holiday TTB #7: This one smells very vanilla, both dry and steeped. But the main flavor is the roobios, with the vanilla adding a creaminess. I think I associate the rooibos flavor with cookies for some reason, and the vanilla in this only added, making me feel like a cookie tea instead of a vanilla one
Holiday TTB #6: This was one of my favorite teas when I first got into loose leaf. I couldn’t help but try it again, after not having tasted it for a few years, and after all these new teas I’ve tried. It definitely was not as good as I remembered, but I can see why I liked it. It was a good stepping stone into more and different tea
Holidays TTB #1: This may be a weird one to start with, but it just stood out so much. I really love lapsang souchong, and the thought of these other flavors mixed with it was really interesting.
The smokiness seemed to be covered up by the other flavors. The hibiscus was also mellowed out and not really tart at all. Maybe the marshmallow root just calmed everything else down? I wasn’t super into the flavor of this, but I’m happy I tried it.
