2219 Tasting Notes
This is the 50/50 blend from Cavocorax.
It’s… weird. Sadly, even though I just shook it with ice and cold almond milk, it’s bitter.
The bubblegum flavour is pretty much SUGAR. It’s really sweet feeling, even with just unsweetened almond milk. The caramel I had yesterday wasn’t nearly as sweet.
I also feel like I should be chewing it.
While this is interesting, it is definitely not for me. Thank you for the sample, Cavo, but I think the rest of it will be donated to the grass outside.
While this is a delicious assam, especially with a wee bit of maple syrup, I think there are others I prefer.
This is a delightful kick in the pants. Nice and strong, loads of assam flavours (ha), smooth with a bit of a bite.
Thanks, Sil, for sharing this with me. :D No, I didn’t share this one with my brother. He’s been loving puerhs and toasted oolongs more than the black teas lately.
Sorry, VariaTEA, I just walked back to my desk with the last mug of this one, to see you wanted to try it!
I finished off the last bit of this and supplemented it with a pinch of Murchie’s Gunpowder Green. Just for some extra body, because I wanted a big mug full of deliciousness.
And it worked! I’m not having this with any creamer tonight, and I’m finding it delicious. The toasty flavours in the Gunpowder Green blend well with the toasted nuts.
This is definitely something I’d pick up if it became available again. It holds milk and sugar well, is nice plain, and the toasted nuts/sugar/spice flavour work really well for me.
This one can only be from MissB!
The dry leaf smelled fantastic. Like rich custardy dessert. Mmm. As soon as I poured the water over, all I could smell was the rooibos. Hmm. Fingers crossed!
And whoops! I didn’t set a timer.
Steeped, it smells like sweet spiced rooibos. Oh hey. That’s a pretty nice rooibos! I think I’d have to leave it to cool to get the full nutmeg/custard taste I’m expecting from the smell… so I’m going to cheat and add some of my home made coconut creamer.
Oh yum. That’s really tasty!
Well, I don’t know that I’d buy this just because I’d have to order it and it only comes in 100g sizes. But I do like it, and if you like the desserty rooibos flavours, this is definitely one to check out.
