1626 Tasting Notes
So, I FINALLY have a weekend off! I had been working 18 days straight, then I had a weekend conference in Maryland… and finally this weekend came rolling around. I felt like I haven’t had a chance to relax and breathe. Now is the chance. I came home and opened my tea cupboard. :)
I received a sample of this in a swap. I’m sorry I forgot who gave this to me. Who was it? Thank you so much! This tea is absolutely delicious. I had no expectations since I didn’t know much about this tea. I only knew that it was a black tea that had a fruity and floral scent to it. I only am reading the description now. On my tongue, it is slightly sweet and tasted very much like strawberries. I LOVE STRAWBERRIES! This is so good. There is mild astringency, but with sugar it nearly went away. I would imagine this is good in milk. I bet this would taste like strawberry milk!
I received this in a swap. I forgot from who though :( I need to write it down on the tea containers, who I had swapped with. Any how, THANK YOU!!! This tea… ehem.. tisane… is absolutely amazing. It smells like cocoa and creamy. I love the large bits of spices mixed in this blend. So pretty and so real!
I am still sick.. ugh! But I could really taste the flavor. I could have drank this alone without any additives, since it is sweet and creamy. However, the flavors and creaminess really stood out once I added a little brown sugar and milk. The yogurt bits definitely helped, and each of the flavors stood out. I was getting caramel, cocoa, cloves, creamy, cardamom notes from this. I could tell there was no black tea in this blend as there wasn’t another strong taste to counter these spices. Overall, this is a wonderful, caffeine-free blend. Absolutely delicious!
