4046 Tasting Notes
This tea was so thick that it moved like jello so I was worried that the coconut in this would come off a little lotiony. However, it wasn’t lotiony because it wasn’t even present in the flavor. Lemongrass is what takes over here. Lemongrass and a bit of the vegetal base, along with a slightly creamy texture, as such it had a real Island vibe to it.

I didn’t love this one. It wasn’t bad per se but it’s a little lacking. I found the tannins in this to be quite strong and any chocolate flavor is weak. It’s sort of there but mostly this tastes a little more dirty than delicious. Nevertheless, thank you Arby for sharing this with me. It is always fun to try new things, even if they don’t always taste amazing.
Last year or perhaps the year before, Roswell Strange sent me a three month subscription to Handmade Tea. That means each month a package arrived with a large packet of tea and a wax envelope with the tea’s description. When it came to this tea, I decided to do a blind test and see how my tastes compared to what the company describes.
When I drank it, the tea tasted like a plain assam to me, as opposed to a flavored one. It was malty and smooth until the finish where it got a bit pithy and astringent. My guess was that was because of the “lime” element that I could not detect elsewhere. I also got notes of raisin and stonefruit with a drizzle of honey. I thought I detected creaminess which would have come from coconut but I didn’t get much in the way of coconut flavor.

Thank you Roswell Strange for the subscription!
This tasted like medicine. A bit of a savory bitterness combined with a slight ginger burn that is being overshadowed by sweet. Not as bad as I expected but definitely not something I would reach for again. I wonder what in my SipsBy profile said this would be something I’d like?

The first thing I noticed while drinking this tea is that it has the nice spice that I love in a good carrot cake. A nice rounded spice flavor that is kept in check by the sweetness of the carrot. Add to that a dense breadiness coming from the base tea that is more akin to pancakes than cake. With that in mind and since there is also nothing that really reminds me of cream cheese icing, I can definitely see this as carrot cake pancakes. If you want carrot cake, this is not the tea to go with but if you want carrot cake pancakes, then give this a try.

This is preferable hot over iced and comes off a lot more liked a baked apple tea as opposed to candy apple. As such, it is roasty and cinnamony and comes off a lot more like a fall/winter blend than a summery candy apple treat.

I’ve been hoarding this tea. A whole large packet sealed in my stash since January. However, I need to work on drinking this down because it is already showing signs of flavor deterioration. Slight but there as the ginger doesn’t have quite the same burn as the taster pack I had before it.
