52 Tasting Notes
This came to me courtesy of Moraiwe during my first ever swap! I was very excited to see it in the package and could not wait to try it. I had the CF TTB at the time though and was eager to get through my choices there and get it on its merry little way and sadly this had to take a back-burner. This is not what I expected it to be. Quite good but I don’t get s’mores from it at all. I get wood and some smoke but no chocolate, no graham cracker, no marshmallow. This is a tasty genmaicha but s’mores it is not. Thanks for letting me try it though, Moraiwe!
Ah, this warmed me right up this morning. It’s pretty sweet but that suits me just fine. It went well with breakfast and was just a nice little pick-me-up on a crappy, snowy Monday morning. Hope everyone enjoys their day (I’ve got a concert tonight so I know I will!) and stays safe, especially those impacted by the winter storm.
This is pretty freaking awesome! I’m totally digging this tea. I feel like I’ve already taken too much from the TTB but I’m not sure I can let this one go. I didn’t know what to expect but it certainly wasn’t this. Artificial grape flavoring literally makes me sick. When we moved out of my childhood home, my mother found all my stashes of the children’s grape Tylenol she had given me when I was sick that I simply wouldn’t take because I couldn’t stand the flavor. Now, I’m a big wine person and my husband is a sommelier so we know our way around some grapes. This tea doesn’t taste like artificial grape flavoring (disclaimer- I dunno if it is or not.) It tastes like actual grapes. And I am one happy girl. YUM!
If I had wanted hot water, I would have consumed hot water, you guys. I wanted tea! As it was, the best part about this water that should have been tea was eating the (albeit delicious!) little fruity bits out of my infuser.
Glad to see that I like this Honeybush better than the last one I had. I was slightly worried that I may not like any of that type but this one is awesome! Really enjoying the coconut and rum flavors. I’m not really getting the pineapple but that’s ok. I might just keep this one from the Caffeine Free TTB. We’ll have to wait and see.
The dry leaf smells like mango, the liquor smells like maple syrup and the tea tastes like mango. What a strange tea this is. From the Caffeine Free TTB, back it goes to please the palates of my fellow box recipients.
