8271 Tasting Notes
The last time i had this was about a year ago and i was mostly just a cinnamon black tea. This version is much tastier for me, it’s still got the cinnamon deliciousness but this one also has a little bit of that pastry/cookie like background which actually makes it feel closer to being like snickerdoodle versus a cinnamon tea. Thanks for this sample Evol Ving Ness
Sample from Evol Ving Ness i was really looking forward to this one…but man, the smell of the anise in this one was just too much. It doesn’t come through in the brew really – that i found to be relatively flat and uneventuful. The aroma though is just LICORICE! in yo face ANISE! Just not for me it seems. thanks though evol! love trying new teas
mmmm sample from evol ving ness yep. happy to try this one finally, even if i can’t currently purchase it lol. This one feels more chocolatey than the version from verdant and more “oolongy” It is also missing the roastyness from the rice that i always really enjoyed. I think this is a tasty blend, but it’s not quite the verdant blend that i want it to be. However, i would totally pick this up on it’s own merits for a different sort of taste experience :)
Final count: 100 (since even if i have more tea tonight, not time to log until tomorrow)
Sample from Evol Ving Ness so the last time i had this one, i wasn’t all that impressed…something about it just didn’t rock my socks. I’m not sure if Evol’s sample was fresher or had a different sort of balance to the sample but this was a great cup of tea today! just the right balance of marshmallow and black tea to create just what i wanted in the afternoon :) thanks evol!
Sample from Evol Ving Ness more berries! haha i think this one would be a decent cup of tea cold brewed (or maybe just brewed and then cooled…) with some sweetner. As a warm cup of tea, there’s a floral note to this that doesn’t jive with me. You can taste the base through the flavouring, which i like..but that berry + floral note is not for me. thanks for the sample evol!
Sample from Evol Ving Ness this one is interesting to me. I enjoyed it but i’m not sure i could drink this in copious amounts. I really like the smoothness of this one and the pop of cherry like flavour in the background. the other spices don’t overpower either which is nice… but i think utimately the cherry and cinnamon? give it a slightly weird taste that i couldn’t drink a lot of. lol 1 cup = good. many cups = can’t do it haha
