3336 Tasting Notes
Might have overleafed, or maybe this isn’t a black? The tea seems somewhat artificial and a little astringent – I think the raspberry just isn’t doing it for me here although… actually, maybe I’m lying, the second sip is better. Not really picking up on the rhubarb, really, and there is an artificialness I don’t care for. It isn’t bad though, and I do think I did overleaf. Enough left for one more cup later :)
Now that I’ve remembered that this is supposed to be a grapefruit tea, it’s sitting much better. I’d initially confused the two teas I was trying, which made me quite disappointed in the lemon poppyseed tea until I realized the switch! This tea is pretty accurate to its name – lovely grapefruit flavour, just enough ginger to add some flavour but not overpower, and the base… does its thing (can’t really pick up anything specific, and it’s not astringent). I’d imagine this would make an amazing iced tea, especially if sweetened. Not a favourite for me personally, but high points for accuracy!
This tea is pretty delicious. It might be the lemon tea of my dreams, actually. Amazing base choice (I’m in love with the rolled yunnan she uses!), lovely soft lemon flavour, and vanilla to wrap it all up. Sometimes lemon teas can be a little harsh; that is not the case here. It truly does taste like a fresh lemon poppyseed muffin, and I can’t get enough.
Yeah so, a brief hiatus from drinking AQ2T’s cranberry blends, and I’m back in love. Just something about this flavouring is really appealing to me, but in moderation. It’s refreshing and unique. Had a few enjoyable mugs of this one lately. Upping the rating; I rated it during a period of too-frequent consumption.
