3703 Tasting Notes
Iced Tea Sipdown (324)
So this is better when your sick and can’t taste the stevia so much. Though it still wasn’t great given it was on the sweeter side, it kind of tasted like cranberry candies. Yesterday I had it hot and it was more tart which would have been better if it wasn’t also more oily because of the chocolate.
Arby suggested this is good for when you’re sick and so I figured now is as good a good a time as any to give it a try. It’s a little vegetal, a little medicinal, and has a bit of a corn taste to it. I might be imaging that but despite it being a very gentle flavor, it is nice. Thank you Arby for the share.
I really didn’t like this when I could actually taste it but since I knew I couldn’t really taste things anyways thanks to the cold I figured it was the best time to finish this off. Turns out it was infinitely better with impaired tastebuds though still not great. It was hydrating though so it did it’s job.
I started my week by booking all my remaining vacation days on Monday. Then I decided to end the black and white photography challenge (thanks Sil for challenging me) by starting a 365 days of tea challenge (again) on Tuesday. So of course today I would wake up sick with the weird pressure in my head, the sore throat, and the runny nose. That means I can’t actually really taste my teas so I’m drinking those I have in large quantities or don’t nuch care for. This is a bit of both and as an added bonus it’s got orange and ginger and other ingredients recommended for colds and sore throats. Unfortunately it seems some of my taste receptors are working while others aren’t so I am picking up a lot of sweet and nothing to balance it out. I’m drinking it because it’s warm and soothing but taste wise, I am not pleased right now.
