342 Tasting Notes
So I took a trip to France, forgetting that Kusmi, which I’ve always wanted to try was from Paris. Then I saw the giant Champs-Elysee store and knew I had to go. I picked up a caramel tea, as well as three of the tins, including this one. I told myself I needed them because I was about to be on a boat for a week and a half without tea if I didn’t get them.
Well now I’m back and many of these are proving to be great breakfast teas. I had this one this morning with some almond milk. Very smooth and tasty, with lots of bergamoty goodness. So glad I got to go to the store and ask about teas in my broken French!
Chocolate and mint is probably my favorite flavor combo ever. I normally have a chocolate mint black tea hanging around, but I finished my last one up. I have peppermint and spearmint, but apparently no chocolate tea, not even mixed in with other flavors. So I picked this up. I like this decently well, but it’s a but subtle compared to what I usually go for with these two flavors. I want the chocolate mint to be just all up in your face, but I do recognize that this tea is good, if not quite to my own preferences
I’ve been craving a vanilla black tea and surprisingly didn’t have one, so I picked this up while getting groceries. The spice from the chai just helps me get into the autumn season!
This is probably one of the best bagged teas I’ve had. The spices are flavorful but not overpowering, and the vanilla is nice and smooth. Next time around, I’m going to try this one with milk, but this is a chai that can hold up on it’s own!
I’ve had this for a while, I don’t remember where from, and for some reason I just haven’t tried it. I actually recently lost my job, so I will probably have more time to drink tea! (have to look on the bright side right?)
I actually thought this had black tea in it instead of green, and brewed it accordingly, but luckily it doesn’t seem to have burnt the tea any! I definitely smell the vanilla in this one, though the taste is slightly more subtle. The rooibos definitely doesn’t overwhelm the flavor and that’s nice
