TASTING NOTE 5555!!!

So, I 100% wanted to do something really special/unique for this tasting note since it’s a pretty monumental number but I realized that while I was waiting to find the perfect tea for this tasting note I was also racking up a pretty substantial queue of things to write about – and I just wasn’t happy with any of the teas I had brainstormed for this note. So, I’m just biting the bullet and writing in the order of things I have queued…

Which means tasting note 5555 is for this Turmeric Latte Blend that I picked up because I was surprisingly really into the Turmeric tea that DAVIDsTEA released this year (Turmeric Glow), especially as a latte. I thought it would be worthwhile trying something similar but new, and I got a coupon code for this company through my Sipsby subscription service, so that made ordering a little more reasonable for me.

Basically this is a powder similar to matcha in preparation – you can make it into a bowl/cup of tea like matcha, but it’s definitely intended as more of a latte sort of thing – hence the name. I’ll definitely try this both straight and as a more traditional latte but the start I thought I’d try this one just cold frothed into some eggnog as more of a holiday type thing. I realize that’s not gonna let me taste the “pure” flavour of the powder right off the bat because the eggnog has such a strong flavour, but it’ll give me a good enough idea I think.

Visually, it’s very interesting looking – REALLY yellow in colour because of the turmeric, but then there’s also tiny, tiny little black flecks which I assume are the black pepper in the blend. Taste wise, I found it quite enjoyable. It’s definitely got some spice to it; and tastes of turmeric but both the ginger and cinnamon come through pretty strongly as well. I don’t actually know what ashwagandha tastes like though so I can’t really speak to that element of the blend. I also thought that the spice really complimented the creamy, sweet eggnog quite well. Even though this isn’t a Chai in the typical sense, I was getting really good chai vibes from the flavour though.

I did let both my mom and little sister try a bit of this one and they both hated it though, for what it’s worth. My sister because of the spice; like me she’s generally just not into things with spice. I don’t think the spice was the issue with my mom – she just didn’t think it went will with the eggnog.

Tumeric Glow really did make the best latte!

meh. meh and meh. if you like lemongrass this is the blend for you. i barely notice the peppercorns or the tumeric.

Apparently i haven’t tried this one yet. I won this, so not something i would have picked out myself. This is mostly lemongrass with a little bit of turmeric. on the whole very “meh”

too much mint! glad i got this one for free as i’m not a fan. there’s just never a time when i want a straight up mint tea. While there’s turmeric and peppercorns in here, it’s largely mint, with a little of the edge taken off. A decent enough blend, but not one i need.

need to get cracking. Fell asleep drinking this but it was very much peppermint with just a hint of other things in the background – slightly disappointing in that sense, but a lovely mint tea otherwise.

Finished this one up today/yesterday? one of those days. Seriously overwhelmed these days but happy and healthy, so no complaints there. Sad to see this one go – i’d drink it again for sure since it’s a tasty sort of chai and the additional of turmeric made it a little different than your usual fare.

Had this one the other day, along with a bunch of others. Still around and drinking tea but barely have time to make notes between work overload, trying to run 3-4 times a week and holding down the fort as much as possible while my other half works obscenely long days at his various jobs. Im’ going to miss this one when it’s gone. there’s something about the turmeric and their chai that i am a fan of. Even my other half loves the smell of this one in the house when i brew it.

delicious ginger, turmeric. Yep i like this herbal. It could have a little more ginger, but that’s almost always the case.

It sounds like you’ve invested in more than your share of ginger tea! I am thinking about getting a sample of Harney and Sons ginger oolong (as if I haven’t got enough Harney tea in the house now). If you’ve tried it, I’d be interested on your thoughts as to how it stands up against the Turmeric Teas Winter brew.

Sil

sadly i haven’t tried that one. good luck on that though!

Had this one yesterday and it was just perfect to get e through my afternoon. I have a whole slew of things to do over the next couple of days so I need my tea to be awesome :) I really like the flavoured spiciness in this one from the ginger. :)

noms. Enjoying these turmeric teas. While i wasn’t getting a lot of cinnamon at the tea festival, in this cup there’s a little more cinnamon that that sample. Still tasty, just something to note.

Somehow managed to miss this booth as well. Clearly I need the two days to do festival properly.

This is very minty! I like it. Not all that spicy, and a lot milder than expected. Almost reminds me of camomile which takes the bite out of the mint.
I’m used to mint taking more of a background role, so it was nice to finally find a blend that uses it more front and centre without it being the main ingredient. So I guess, a mid note?

I made an extra large cup of this for me, and one for a friend at work. Holy teamus half the package is gone! It felt like there was a normal amount but I need to see what the package says because it occurred to me after I’d put it away and we were off to host an event.
The tea was good though. A bit oddly sweet, it took some getting used to, but once I did? oh yes I was craving more. Not for the taste…but the euphoric ride! eesh. I was in a happy place. To be honest, I was in a work zone, since I had a bunch to do and not much time. So yeah. A better review next time.
Also. My coworker, who was fighting a cold finished it in maybe 15 min. He says it was good!!

Sorry that I missed that counter at the tea festival. It was always crowded. But euphoric ride! Sounds heavenly.

They seemed to do really well! I couldn’t get in at all on Saturday. Only because I was around all day both days was I able to find a quiet moment to slip in! I’ll save some for you to try :)
