554 Tasting Notes
So, I combined Wild Cherry and Strawberry Kiwi from Citizen Tea as I only had one spoonful of each and I knew that I wouldn’t drink these hot.
I’m finding the cherry is definitely overtaking the strawberry. I’m getting little bit of strawberry but not a whole lot… which is okay I guess… probably wouldn’t combine these again…
This one is so much better when it’s fresh. My sample amount that I had left wasn’t fresh and I could tell. The flavours weren’t very good anymore. I was very disappointed with the iced tea I made last night as it didn’t really have any good flavour… I ended up tossing what was left of my sample….
Another tea that I shouldn’t have hoarded. I think with this one I just kind of forgot I even had it, so it sat around and wasn’t enjoyed… It’s too bad.
Wow does this ever taste like the Teaopia blend! I use to drink this one hot, but today I thought I’d do it cold.
It’s pretty good. I probably could have let it steep a bit longer than the 5 minutes I did, but that’s okay. This one has a nice fruitiness to it, but it also has some floral from the rosehips. Because of that floral, I’m not sure if I’d get this one again. But it was nice to try this blend.
This tea is so yummy but I think my body doesn’t care for it. I found out several years ago that I’m allergic to grass and I have never gotten a good answer from anyone as to whether or not lemongrass is considered a grass same as like the grass outside that causes allergies.
Anyways, today I made this iced and my son seemed to enjoy it, but I found as I was drinking it I was starting to get a wicked headache. I switched and started drinking my blueberry latte instead and the headache pain is fading/almost gone. So, I don’t know if that means that I’m allergic or if it’s just one of those weird coincidences… Now I don’t know if I should keep it and try again or get rid of it…
I only had two perfect spoons of this one so I made a small latte with it as I didn’t want to drink it as just a regular tea.
It turned out pretty good actually. I’m actually kind of glad that I didn’t make it any stronger. It was a nice blueberry flavour without being overpowering and the base didn’t get too strong or overpowering either. I do appreciate how this one has real blueberries in it too as some of the other blueberry teas that I have tried have not had real berries in it and just flavouring.
So, either way, I quite enjoyed this tea. It was better than I remember it being before. Maybe as a latte helped?
Made an iced tea today with this one but I have to say, I don’t love this tea. I was getting some crazy floral taste to it, which doesn’t make too much sense to me, but yeah… So anyways, I didn’t enjoy this one that much. Maybe the amount I had was getting old? It probably was… Maybe a fresh sample would be better to try to really know how I feel about it, but this time I was kind of over it.
