1473 Tasting Notes
It is a beautiful morning, if only because it is no longer yesterday XD. Yesterday we discovered our bedframe is moldy and rotting, I broke my toe, and spilled tea all over myself. Today will be better because I say so XD.
However we did organize our sipdowns into caffeinated and non caffeinated, so I can just grab one and go. Hopefully my grabbing this one bodes well for the day.
I had this with an avocado smashed onto an everything bagel and it is just perfect. The tea is nice and fruity, though I wouldn’t pick out strawberry specifically. And the lime kinda tastes like lime peel. Still, it’s a tasty morning cup.
Love this tea, but will likely finish a sipdown of it tomorrow, which is sad, but this tea is another from our scary-old collection XD. Added a splash of vanilla sugar free syrup because I was trying to finish off the bottle and unf. It takes the dreamsicleness of this to a whole new level. So yummy, I will be sad to see this one go, but glad to have another old tea out of my cupboard.
We bought this tea ages ago when we first went to Tealish because Bella is the name of the first cat that we ever adopted together, just after our wedding. She’s currently curled up on my chest, trying to distract me from everything else XD.
I love this tea. Every time I have this tea, I realize how much I love it, and then I don’t drink it for months, years. Ooops. Well, today is a sipdown of that first bag we bought ages ago and it’s as good as ever. I think this needs to go on our restock list. I won’t place an order just to get more, but if we’re already ordering, this will definitely be one to get more of.
This is tasty and the licorice root balances out the massive amount of hibiscus for me. Slightly fruity and very juicy.
That said, I spend a lot of my time in the summer making sangria for my in-laws and while this doesn’t taste like the sangria I make, it does bring to mind the bottled non-alcohols sangria I would buy back home in Tennessee. I could do with more fruit and less hibiscus/licorice, but it won’t be a hardship for me to sip this down.
Another sipdown! This smells like those pomegranate vitamin c cough drops. Not the best association, but not necessarily a bad one either. Just not something I would ever want to drink a cup of XD.
It tastes….like it smells, medicinal hiding under fake fruit flavor. Meh. Glad to see it gone.
edit Bananas. Why am I tasting bananas?
Sipdown and thank goodness. I thought my wife’s cup last night was bitter because I accidentally over-leafed, but I was more careful with mine this morning and it’s still crazy bitter. Steeped under boiled for a mere two minutes and I’ve got a bitter brew with maybe a hint of cranberry? Maybe? Blegh. Will finish my cup, but I’m glad to be rid of it.
