2217 Tasting Notes
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.
Thanks for the sample, MissB. :)
This smells quite grapey. Kind of like sweet wine but without the alcohol. I’m trying it without sugar or creamer first, as I feel that what I want to add would kill the flavour. I didn’t realize there was white tea in it (I noticed the different leaves, but it didn’t make it much further in my brain!), or I might have steeped at 185F, even.
Doop di do. Waiting for tea to cool is boring. This is why I like creamer!
Ok. This is pretty good, actually. Huh. It’s not wine, it’s definitely tea and sweet white grape juice. I’ll drink it, but I don’t think I’d purchase the flavour.
