555 Tasting Notes
I’m not on Steepster much these days, but every so often I come back and write a review. I want to get back here more often as I do love this website.
Anyways, I went to the shop that sells these beteas only a couple of weeks ago. I LOVED it!! It was such a great little place.
I picked this one up because they said it would have chocolate notes to it. And I think I get a little of it… but either way, I really like it. There’s something very nice about it. It reminds me of the Nepal Black tea from Davidstea. It’s got that same smoothness to it. So yummy!
I can’t believe I’ve had this tea so long now! Yikes! But it’s still so amazing and still tastes fine. I’ve been drinking this one before bed for a few weeks now so that I can relax and I think it’s doing the job. There has been a lot of stress in my life lately and I’m glad for something like this. I will definitely be getting this one again once i’m out of it.
So, I’m starting to realize I don’t care for sweet blackberry leaves either…
I steeped up this one for 7 mins in my ice tea press and wow, it’s yummy but wow it was different… I ended up adding some agave and some extra water to it to smooth it out a bit as I found the blackberry leaf sweetness as really weird and didn’t quite sit right… I’m not too sure why I don’t like the blackberry leaves.. I feel like they give me a weird taste in the back of my mouth… Again, I blame baby #2 for that. My body seems to still be a bit weird after that. Babe is 3 months old but I think I’m still trying to get back to myself.
