2219 Tasting Notes
I’m eating the rest of my dinner before I go to bed. I wasn’t actually able to eat everything I was supposed to today. 2 meals and a snack, instead of 3 meals. Veggies are filling, wow.
I also made some homemade Lara bars, but my dates were like rocks so I softened them in a little water. And ended up with some date tea. Which I sneakily slipped into this dessert tisane. Shh…
Yeah, IDK. I think I like this more than Birthday Cake? I waffle a lot with these two. But I think I’ll go with this one in the future because no dairy. That’s pretty important for me, I think.
Darjeelings are weird, yo. I have 3 more to try soon. Maybe I’ll be able to pinpoint the weirdness.
Still not my favourite, but an enjoyable cup.
I definitely prefer the smell of the dry leaves to the taste of them steeped. However, this is a tea I can drink without any sugar added (I am getting grumpy about this and I’m only on day 3…), so it’s a tea I’ll be finishing up soon.
I got the assortment of 18 teas to try, and for some reason the idea of mint tea appealed to me tonight.
Only… not so much.
It smells amazing. Like candy canes, like dad’s old work thermos, like my childhood. Without sugar, though? Oh, ugh. Mint tea is awful. I’d rather eat a candy cane, thanks. It tastes like grass and leaves the feeling of toothpaste as it evaporates off the tongue.
I’ll probably try this again after I’m done with the no sugar thing, just to see if it tastes as good as I remember when I add sugar or honey to it. :)
Thanks, WheezyBee!! :D I finally got it, and even though the post person STUFFED it into my tiny mail box, everything looks fine.
So this tea. The one I was waiting for. The one I hoped to buy if I liked it but it’s already disappeared from the website… It’s good!
I don’t really see any tea in there, but it’s a light green liquid (kinda mossy) that tastes like cranberries, cinnamon, and anise. It works for me! It’s too bad the cranberries are sweetened, but that means I don’t have to add anything in my “sugar free” month. :D
Thanks so much for sharing this with me! I’ll keep an eye on the website… I might like this 250g worth!
Yum. A tea that doesn’t need additives.
It brews up SO pale, I was concerned I wouldn’t get any tea taste in it, but no worries. It’s a bit of a toasted oolong, which normally I don’t love, but goes perfectly with the toasted hazelnut and vanilla.
It’s like dessert. Except it’s just liquid in a glass.
I am thumbing my nose at the elimination diet and having this as a latte. Not that this isn’t allowed, because I can’t see why it wouldn’t be, but because it FEELS like it shouldn’t be allowed.
Mmm, marzipan rooibos. I made it with coconut milk and water. Steeped about 10 minutes. Delicious. This rooibos might need to find a place in my cupboard.
