3814 Tasting Notes
Woke up early and therefore had time to make tea. This is one of two that I grabbed to take with me. I have been enjoying sipping on this throughout the morning and even now that it’s cold. It’s got a distinct blueberry cotton candy flavor. Artificial but welcome in light of the flavor inspiration which I think it nailed.
Strawberry Milk Latte Sipdown (396)
I think this is the best way I’ve tried this but at the end of the day I just don’t love this tea. The base imparts More flavor than I’d like and the raspberry being tart builds on the base notes rather than covering them. That wouldn’t necessarily be bad but it makes everything feel flat and one dimensional. With the strawberry milk, there’s some much needed sweetness added but overall I just find this underwhelming.
Chocolate Milk Latte Sipdown
So this is good and has a nice spice to it but I have deja vu. All these holiday spiced A Quarter to Tea blends are blending together in one blur of cinnamon and other holiday flavors. They’re good but they aren’t special enough to need to keep around.
ETA: the cocoa and coffee all came through as one flavor punch in the final sip.
I made this in the Tea press which it sat in all day cuz no food and caffeine, combined with work stress, is not a great combo. I had one sip at work and that was delicious and now I’m drinking it with my bacon and eggs dinner. Even after 12+ hours I can tell this is awesome. Full flavored like a black tea and yet flavor notes often found in white teas, I.e. corn. Yum!
