3586 Tasting Notes
I got this sample from Kittenna probably around a year ago and I am finally getting to it today. If I am being honest, my reasoning behind this sipdown is kinda silly but yesterday I had 3 sipdowns and wrote 3 Sororitea Sisters tea reviews and I decided to track that in my bullet journal but actually wrote down the information for today instead of yesterday. So rather than crossing that out, I decided to just write 3 reviews and drink 3 sipdowns today. This was an easy one to hit that number.
It is also a nice tasting tea which makes for a smooth sipdown. I’m getting a lot of blueberry despite their being no actual blueberries in the dry leaf in my filter and lots of raspberries. There is a touch of raspberry among the blueberry and maybe a slight coconut creaminess but if I had to blindly guess, I would say this was a blueberry tea through and through. Thank you for the share Kittenna!
People seem to be pretty med about this blend but I actually quite like it. I find it is sweet and juicy from the strawberry flavor but not too sweet thanks to the touch of lemon that comes in midsip. Personally I am really enjoying this one (at least this first cup of it…perhaps that’s new tea excitement though).
This was not in my cupboard so looks like that number is going up again. This is one of the teas I won and I don’t think I would have picked it myself but sipping it now, I will say it is quite nice. This has cooled completely but its got a nice creamy tang that plays nicely off the honeybush base. I’ve never personally had a kumquat, I don’t think, so I don’t know what to look for exactly. However, there is not much of a discernible/unique flavor here that I could even attribute to the fruit. Sweet. Fruity. Cheesecake. I’m happy with it.
What makes this tea smokey? I keep trying to figure it out from the ingredients but I just can’t. However, this last cup is smokey indeed. Smokey and with a vague fruity essence every now and then. Maybe a bit of a baked good vibe but I don’t know if thats because its actually there or just because I think I should be so I am imagining it. All in all, this was an alright tea but it wasn’t what I hoped it would be so I think I am okay with saying goodbye.
