3916 Tasting Notes
Every time I revisit this one I am impressed and yet I don’t reach for it often so rather than letting it grow old(er) in my cupboard, this is going somewhere it will be truly appreciated…Sil’s cupboard.
This cup is malty and rich with sweet pastry notes. Blueberry is also present, of course, and very reminiscent of homemade blueberry pie filling (well I guess danish filling). Cream cheese doesn’t come through as clearly for me but tbh I don’t miss it. This really is good and if my cupboard was smaller I would happily keep it and sip away but this has sat for so long already and I know it will be forever before I grab it again. Better it go somewhere to be enjoyed while it is still fresh…ish.
It might be warmer than it has been outside but it is cold af in my house. So, I am drinking hot teas but keeping things light by drinking a green tea. Green being the key word today as the base is coming through loud and clear. The green base with creamy eggnog on top. Eggy but with a touch of nutmeg. It’s nice but I just wish the base was more subtle however I think that has more to do with the broken bits of leaf from the bottom of the bag that made it into my filter than a reflection on the tea itself.
Not gonna lie…this was disappointing. It smelled awesome but why was the little bit of rooibos necessary?! I do get banana and I do get pineapple but then I also get that rooibos and the coconut just makes this a touch too slick. I had high hopes because a flambeed banana tea sounds awesome but this fell short.
Latte Sipdown (387)
A Quarter to Tea had a series of sweet potato or gingerbread type teas. All spiced in a very similar way. This is no exception. It is making for a nice latte, all warm and a touch bready but honestly I feel like I have had this before. It’s tasty but not anything that stands out among the rest.
Sipdown…not actually…this went into my swap box which is off to my office.
Honestly this wasn’t as bad as I thought but not as bad as I thought doesn’t mean it was good. Think flowers that someone drizzled honey on. If someone likes jasmine/floral teas, this could nice for them but I am not this tea’s target audience.
I made this as a chocolate milk latte and it feels very watered down. This could be because of my measuring, or lack thereof. It could also be the tea which has peppermint chocolate pieces in it as those melt and create a bit of oil. If I’m being honest, this isn’t bad perse but it’s similar to Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA and honestly I’d prefer that one.
