3217 Tasting Notes
Decided to throw some of this in a travel mug today, and it was kind of a nice change to drink as the mulberries made it quite sweet, whereas most teas I bring along are not overtly sweet. Tasty. Gave the second infusion a very long infusion and it’s pretty good as well. I don’t think I’ll restock this tea though. Too expensive for what it is.
Thanks to Raritea for sharing some of this with me (via Ellyn!)
I couldn’t detect any aroma whatsoever from the dry tea, so really had quite low expectations for this blend, but I am getting flavour, and it’s actually not bad! I don’t distinctly taste cucumber (which is completely ok, because the one time I purchased cucumber water it made me gag! Not that I don’t like cucumbers though) and I’m not tasting as much kiwi as I would like, but it’s quite a refreshing blend. I’m actually kind of tempted to purchase it for myself if there’s another 52teas sale in the future, while it’s still available. I can definitely also taste the distinctive flavour of honeybush, which I do actually kind of enjoy, sometimes.
Thanks again you guys – this was a blend I’d been wavering about purchasing for a while, I just wish I’d gotten around to trying it sooner!
I opted to eat the two jellybeans in my infuser prior to steeping this tea… figured they’d be better off in my mouth… haha. Anyhow, this tea still reminds me a lot of Swampwater, but without the icky, scummy floaty stuff. And I did actually like the flavour of Swampwater ok, just kind of tropical fruit-y, which is what this one is as well. I suppose I can perhaps taste some coconut in here as well as a bit of creaminess, but that’s it. A decent blend for the evening, but there are far better options that I’d rather drink.
Ack, I am struggling with myself not to buy this one online. It’s just SO expensive :/ Enjoyed a delicious travel mug-full of this yesterday/today. On that note… I totally picked up two more Contigo mugs from Costco on the weekend, so now I can prepare 5 mugs each morning… hahahahahahahaha. I definitely went to work this morning with all 5 full of tea….
