200 tasting notes

This is my second note about this flavor. If you consume it in the form of iced tea, it’s better.
“Better.”
But still not “good.”
It still has this fairly awful green apple Jolly Rancher aftertaste that coats your tongue and refuses to let go.
If I had to choose between this apple and the apple that poisoned Snow White, I might honestly go with a coma.
How does this tea exist?
Have you ever seen the other Bruce Willis/M. Night Shyamalan movie? It’s called “Unbreakable.” Its premise is that, due to the bell curve, for every person, there’s another, opposite person.
A guy (Samuel L Jackson) with super-shatterable bones decides that he’s going to locate a super-sturdy person (his opposite, Bruce Willis) and destroy him so he can get better.
I should look for a person who adores this tea. I wouldn’t attempt a murder or anything. I just want to look my nemesis in the eye.

Haha seriously? I never saw that movie but the plot sounds ridiculous enough that I’d watch it for fun.

I’m so sorry you’d rather be in a coma than drink this. Ouch! I liked this one last year when it was fresh, but I got tired of it after a while anyway.

Super Starling!

@Fjellrev — The movie’s worth a watch. Maybe not a CLOSE watch. You know, the kind of watch you have where you’re idly scrolling through Facebook or Steepster at the same time.

I probably would choose the tea over a coma. I’m just a drama queen.

I inherited this tea from another drama queen. She handed it to me and said “I cannot stand to be near this tea.” I recently sent a sample of this to a friend of mine with the note “I hate this tea. Hot potato.” I can’t wait to see how he responds.

Can I just say again that I really enjoy reading your reviews? :)

Super Starling!

@Mookit — Of course. Yes. I grant you permission to say that whenever the mood strikes.

Your friend just received your hot potato. :) I think I’m gonna try it tonight as the first tea out of the many you sent me. Either I’m a brave soul or a dumb ass.

Super Starling!

I don’t want to say anything unkind, so I guess I’ll just have to go with “brave soul.” Sure. Let’s say that.

mtchyg

Nope, currently drinking it. About to write a review. I’m leaning towards dumb ass.

Super Starling!

Bio

I’m a graphic designer, illustrator, crafter, geek, and recent tea convert. I love teas that are sweet, zippy (caffeinated), and hopeful. In concrete terms, that’s usually black or maté tea, with some chocolate/vanilla/berry/nut in there somewhere. If it gives me the dessert experience without the calories, my heart soars.

I’m not a big fan of mint, grass (“yogi farts”), sours, or bitterness.

I’m into the idea of trading to try new things. If there’s something in my cupboard you’d like to try, send me a message!
