2217 Tasting Notes
Well, this one’s not caffeinated so I’m giving it a go. Guess I won’t be adding honey to my “pizza” tea…
Dry, it’s just… dried veggies and herbs. Yep. Smells like tomatoes.
Steeped, well… they recommend 9 g/16 oz mug. That is a lot. I had ~3-4 g, so I am using a 7 oz mug.
My apartment smells like smoked paprika and peppers now.
Yes. What I’m mostly getting is green pepper.
The tea is sweet and savoury. The rosemary and pepper aren’t super prominent – it’s mostly green pepper and sweetness from the tomato.
Weird. Thanks for sharing, Sil.
Hahaha. Totally copying Christina with this one.
Although… Bear With Me has totally got me onto the flavoured “President’s Choice” sparkling water in grapefruit… So here’s hoping I can keep my tea consumption high even though I have a case of this delicious bubbly stuff to consume. :D
This tea smells amazing! Like grapefruit-orange jelly candies. Not like I might still have some in the cupboard from Squish or anything, nope, not me.
I added a little honey since Christina said “sour” and I wanted to make it more like the candy smell.
It tastes almost a little dusty. And it’s fairly thin. And I think there’s licorice root in this (BLECH). But otherwise, I think the flavour is there. Perhaps if I hadn’t steeped it in the paper it wouldn’t taste dusty, but honestly if there’s licorice in here that’s probably it.
So, sadly, it’s a fail for me. After smelling so promising. My tastebuds are just too picky.
Thanks for sharing, MissB and Sil.
Spices. Orange blossoms. Flowers.
Hmm. Interesting. Not bad, but not my favourite profile. It’s almost too complicated, and doesn’t let me wallow in anything.
Also, it says on the packet that it’s a black tea but on here it says it’s a green blend. At any rate, it’s astringent. Even with milk.
Thanks so much for letting me try, MissB. It’s a neat combination of flavours but I would not search this out…
