8876 Tasting Notes
Free sample from my Necessiteas order. Not adding this to my cupboard since it’s off to VariaTea since she’s always giving me samples of things :D This one was very much sort of a coconut black tea, with a little sweetness to smooth things out and blend the tea. It’s not quite truffle for me, since the chocolate truffles i occasionally indulge in, are just that…serious indulgences. i get a chocolate vibe from this but it’s faint. Overall not a bad tea, enjoyed drinking it but i don’t need more of it in my cupboard :)
this.smells.amazing. I think i’ve somehow made it my mission to find the perfect orange creamsicle tea. This one is pretty decent. I wish there were less marshmallows because even though i like them – they make this feel more like orange marshmallo tea instead of creamsicle. Again, like pineapple mimosa, i preferred the cooled brew of this over the hot, though both weren’t half bad. I’ll need to add a tiny bit of sguar to the next cup i make to see if that makes the orange flavour pop more :)
Let me tell you, the dry aroma of this one is BOOZE lol. Not really sure why i got this one – i hate champagne. However i love a good pineapple and fruit/herbal teas were few in my cupboard at the time. Brewed up, the alchol/champagne is not nearly as strong as the aroma. I’m not getting a lot of pineapple, but i AM feeling the mimosa aspect. I actually preferred this one more after it had cooled down significantly. I had it hot, then went for a run for 30 mins while it cooled down heh. Want to play with this a bit more before i land on a final verdict but so far, not bad.
VariaTEA shared this one with me and i’ve since purchased it for myself. Stupidly great sale the other day even with the exchange means i have an abundance of tea now that was super cheap – which is just what i want when i pick up flavoured blends heh. Sometimes this one comes across as a little maple-y for me, sometimes it’s much more krispy treat. I like that this is a black version versus the usual genmaicha blends (though i love those too!!!).
