Another from VariaTEA…guess it’s that kinda day haha. Chocolate? check. though not in your face sort of chocolate. Zucchini? yes surprisingly. bread like flavour? yep! This one feels like it’s namesake which means that while that’s a good thing, it’s not for me haha. I don’t love chocolate breads… Also, my other complaint with this tea is that it clogged up my strainer pretty good with the cookie? type bits that turned in to a soggy mess. Still, i think this is a good one for anyone who likes that sort of tea :)
Another one from VariaTEA. This one i’m not really a fan of. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not the sort of tea i can get behind. I generally don’t love green teas and while this is a reasonable tasting apple like tea, it’s just not doing it for me. There’s some other flavour here that i can’t place as well. It’s a smooth tasting tea, just not for me.
Sample from VariaTEA. I didn’t actually bother to look up what this tea was supposed to be. I assumed there would be some sweetness to it but was also figuring for that honey taste that AQ2T puts in some of their teas that i’m not the biggest fan of. What i got was a pleasant surprise. While this is sort of a sweet, almost vanilla like tea (i’m not getting that honey flavour yet that i don’t like), the spicy notes in here make this a win for me. It’s not overly spicy – it really just adds to the mix and makes it an interesting cup.
This will likely be gone by the end of the long weekend. This was a great cup for this morning – cool, rainy mornings = tea just seems that much more amazing in the morning haha. While these weren’t as malty and chocolatey as previous years they are still a great every day sort of cup of tea and they’ll be back in my cupboard before long i’m sure.
