464 Tasting Notes
Weird tea! It tastes like mango at first but then breaks down into a bunch of different flavors. The second flavor is strong citrus, most reminiscent of grapefruit. The third flavor is creamy. It must be the vanilla, but it really, really tastes like coconut. The chamomile is nice in this- not overwhelmingly grassy like some. Overall I do like this, but it doesn’t taste like mango after a while.
Since I’m in the neighborhood, I stopped by press tea and had the Wild Himalayan Black Tea. Last time I had it with cream and I felt I couldn’t properly gauge how the pressed tea compared to a normal black. This time I got it straight. Woohee! This is bitter and strongly malty. I had 3 sips and then I had to sweeten it. Once I added honey, it smoothed out the flavor and was much better. There is a build up of bitterness in the mouthfeel and I feel like I need to brush my teeth. This isn’tsmething I would drink on a regular basis.
I am all exhausted from my friend’s wedding weekend. I got upgraded from bridesmaid to ringbearer once the bride forgot the rings at her apartment in Inwood. I had to get back on the A train for 45 min and then head back to Penn Station. I’m glad we found out before we left Manhattan for Long Island! I haven’t had a decent cup of tea since yesterday morning and I really need to get myself some ASAP! This iced tea is a nice holdover, which I bought with lunch @ Pota-topia.
It’s better than Snapple Peach. It is less sweet with a bolder, maltier base. The peach flavor is natural, but not something that will make me want it again as a regular thing.
