3229 Tasting Notes
A nice strong no-fuss chai. I’ve been brewing up teabags at work lately (great way to reduce the stash!) and had this with some cream and sugar the other day. it was pretty tasty. I do typically prefer loose-leaf chais, because I can drink them straight, but the strength of this one makes it perfect for lattes (or pseudo-lattes).
Actually not too bad for a random bagged tea! I nabbed a bag of this off someone at work, and was halfway anticipating gross rancid coconut (especially since the canister of teabags had a 50% off sticker on it), but it was fairly light, mild, and nicely fruity-pineapple with creamy coconut. I don’t know exactly what was in it, but it was certainly devoid of hibiscus (YAY), and no weird rooibos flavour (I don’t actually think there was rooibos, but I had been expecting it, so it was a nice surprise not to taste it).
Backlog. (Note reposted from Strawberry Fields, where I accidentally posted it the first time).
Floral and light; a bit fruity… tastes like the elderflower drinks I’ve had before. A white base was a good choice for the flavouring, although I wish you could actually taste the tea a bit more (and this is why I liked Butiki’s flavoured whites…) A bit too flowery for my tastes, though.
Sipdown! A tasty tea, but probably not worth the price to me, as it’s mostly a red-fruits sort of black and that’s not my favourite flavour – if the vanilla was stronger, that could perhaps have pushed it over the edge. The base is nice enough, though, and I certainly enjoyed this last cup :)
I’m surprised I still have so much of this left, considering I bought it as a partial pouch and feel like I’ve drank it quite a bit. It’s so good when brewed right (i.e. very carefully 2 min at 180, 1.5 tsp for ~10oz). But so finicky and bitter if not. It was perfect yesterday, though. All sweet blueberry candy.
