8949 Tasting Notes
mmm i think i’m torn on this one as to whether i like the cold brew or hot brew more. Both are enjoyable though i think the hot brew eeks out just a little as the winner. Mostly, because it makes the blend just a little smoother. It’s as close to ruby red as i imagine a brew getting to now that stacy’s gone. Not too shabby DT….not too shabby.

hot brew – not too shabby, I think i prefer this one brewed hot and then cooled. It brings out the raspberry flavour a little more, and lets the mint take a smaller role. Still not a smashing success for me, but i understand why folks would enjoy this. tasty enough to try but that’s all i need from this one.
dexter sent me this to try and today i tried to compare it with the 2014 version. I’m glad i have a little more to try this again because this was fairly flat and tasteless today compared to the 2014 version (which imo was a little less awesome than 2013). i’m going to withhold my rating until i have a chance to try this again….plus it’ll give me time to convince dexter to try it as well :)
FInal cup of the evening – still trying to work through my cupboard. I’m about 40 above my goal at the moment, which isn’t bad considering my paris purchases but isn’t great for being able to restock things anytime soon as far as my regular teas go lol. Still enjoying this one – may blend more of this with zhu rong to help finish that up.
