3454 Tasting Notes
Made this as an iced tea and it is actually awesome. I worried the white tea would get soapy but somehow this remains buttery. The citrus is bright and crisp and cranberry keeps things sweet. I might be crazy but there is also a brown sugar note here that is coming from…I don’t even know where but I like it. I will definitely be drinking this iced again. Plus, I will be drinking it more often because this really is a good tea.
Oh powder tea, you are ever so strange. So fine yet flavorful. This is like a floral apple tea and though the base is present, it is not bitter. Like many other french teas, I want more flavor and less base but this is not too bad. The rest of this tea is cold brewing overnight and we’ll see how that goes. At this point, I am okay saying goodbye.
Like I said yesterday, now that my second swap with Arby has arrived, I should probably start drinking up the teas from our first swap. As far as the Disney teas go, I think this is one of my favorites because it’s got a really nice mango flavor. The base, though a little vegetal, compliments the flavoring and though it’s not the best tea ever, it’s pretty good.
Well I made this as a latte and though it had a hint of strawberry milkshake flavor, it was just too subtle. Add to that that I am not 100% sure my milk wasn’t going bad because (1) I can’t smell sour milk and (2) when I poured this out of the milk frother, it seemed to come out in chunks. Between that and the barely there flavor, this got dumped.
The dry leaf of this last night when I set it up to cold brew smelled like my beloved Della Terra chiffon teas. However, despite not tasting like those teas, this does taste incredibly familiar. It took me a minute to place it but once I did there was no denying that this tasted like a honey lemon halls with less menthol. Don’t know if that’s good or bad tbh.
Tried putting this in orange juice as per Sil’s creamsicle drink except I thought it was weird to put orange juice in my milk frother so I tried to stir by hand and just made a huge mess and then I brushed my teeth so by the time I drank this it had creamsicle notes but was also super weird tasting and bitter. So basically, I’m an idiot :P
As per Arby’s recommendation, I am drinking this immediately. It is one of her favorites and I can see why. This has a soft and buttery caramel flavor, emphasis on the buttery. There is something floral here as well while the base is smooth and has gentle notes of stonefruit. It is lovely though personally I am happy just giving it a try. Thank you, Arby for sharing one of your beloved teas.
