FLUORO PINK COLD BREW PARTY!
Since getting hooked on T2’s Apple Crumble my love for Forever Nuts has waned. It’s way too sweet in comparision. But I sure do still appreciate it for what it is, so the rating remains!
Oh, I think this might actually be a sipdown, too. Thanks to ashleyelizabeth for feeding my DAVIDsTEA addiction!
Trying to decide how I feel about this one.
First try is cold brewed. The nose is almost all coconut, but that sunscreen-y kinda coconut. Awkward approach.
The flavour still has that sunscreen-y essence to it, but also enough tangy berry/citrus. The green isn’t too present, but that’s a plus for me.
I’ll sit my rating here for now and see what the future brings for us, Green Tang.
Ok, I’ll admit it. Time to boost the rating on this one. This must always be in my cupboard, it’s the best fruit tisane I’ve come across. Beats Forever Nuts (because it’s not as saccharine sweet).
I’m really annoyed, too, because I’ve been trying to wean off T2 now it’s owned by Unilever.
But the heart wants what the heart wants.
Drank this tonight after cold brewing for around 24hrs and it continues to be wonderful. A lovely balance of tart sweetness. Crisp apple goodness.
Got a sample teabag in a mothers day gift from work (they’re big on all ladies getting mothers day stuff and all gents getting fathers day stuff… but weird, but whatever, it means my cat doesn’t need to buy me anything).
I was pleased and surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Creamy mint. Good job, twinings. Maybe I don’t need to long for DAVIDsTEA’s white chocolate frost after all. You might do…
Finishing my Mr. Earl May tea #2 in two forms today, cold brewed and a warm cup.
I butchered the cold brew a bit because I haven’t done a green before and it’s come out a bit too bitter. Darn that green tea! Oversteeped. Need to pay better attention to green cold brewing and remember I can’t leave them overnight (not that I did with this one, just left it for around 6hrs, should have been shorter—I actually lunged out of bed to stop this one steeping).
The hot brewed cup is very nice though. I think all the extra flavour fell to the bottom of the sachet! Got a mouth full of berries that complements the green tea and isn’t overwhelmed by it like in the cold brew.
Bye, Fairytale! You were nice and I’m sure people who like green teas will like you.
OK, today’s cold brew isn’t as sour. I suppose it’s how you feel about that mulberry flavour at any given time, but in the cold brew it’s less sour and more sweet berry (maybe overripe berry is a better way to describe it).
I’m happy to keep my rating at 60 for Gold Rush, and I’ll drink my final leaves hot this afternoon.
I’m starting to run out of easy sipdowns. With 70 teas in my house, I’m starting to run out of easy sipdowns. How is this even a thing. And I have 15 Butiki teas winging their way to me as I type. Sorry, 15 Butiki teas plus free samples, AND a swap.
Help. Send help.
Tasting note #400, woo!
Except this is a bit of a sour note. Literally! My feelings have changed on this blend, and I’m sad to say that the mulberry is brewing a little sour for my tastes.
Really torn on bringing my rating down for this. Based on my scale I should throw it down to a 45 at the most but I can’t bring myself to do that.
I’ve got one more cup’s worth of blend, and a cold brew in the fridge, so a couple of drinks before I make my final note on you, Gold Rush.
