433 Tasting Notes
Had this yesterday, and it was really lovely. It wasn’t the usual green tea blend, that’s for sure. I could see the little white chocolate bits in the tea, and there were quite a few of them, but it just added to the flavour of the blend and didn’t really stand out/distract like I usually feel regular chocolate does in a tea blend. I didn’t get any marshmallow notes from it, per se, but overall the vanilla/white chocolate just smoothed out the green tea flavour and it was a nicely balanced, slightly sweet cup of tea. Glad I got a couple of ounces of this! I am not normally a huge green tea fan so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I had this in a coffee shop in Seattle and it tasted a lot better than it’s ever tasted when I make it at home. Kind of funny! It was much more well-blended and maybe not steeped as long as I normally steep it. It was nice to give it a second chance, and I enjoyed it, but I still wouldn’t buy more for myself.
Had two cups of this today. It’s really lacking, but I was REALLY in the mood for some Earl Grey and it’s 50/50 between this brand or the Celestial Seasonings that I have at work. I can’t wait to finish the last of the CS kind off and then I can buy a really good Earl Grey from somewhere else.
I haven’t been having this every Friday like usual since I’m trying to watch my calories a bit better lately (and save money). I also wish I liked Caribou Coffee’s chai latte better (because honestly, I’d rather give them my money vs. Starbucks), but I don’t. Today’s Tazo chai latte tasted pretty phenomenal, I have to say. Absence does make the heart grow fonder in this case!
