3703 Tasting Notes
Made this iced as per Memily’s suggestion and though it was pleasant enough, I think I preferred it hot. Iced, the base was more pronounced which pushed some of the tasty banana flavor to the background. Although, perhaps I was more biased having this cup because I just finished the tasty Banana Pudding tea that I enjoy so much.
So I don’t like coffee but for some reason when I see coffee flavored things, i get really excited. However, when I drink them and they have the coffee earthiness/bitterness, I find myself disappointed. Unfortunately this tea was no exception. I tried it without sugar and really disliked what I was tasting (though it smelled AMAZING!) because the espresso took over. Today, I took Stacy’s advise and added some pieces of rock sugar and though it has helped to bring out some of the other flavors, this is still too espresso for my taste. Luckily many seem to be a fan so I doubt it would be hard to find someone to take this off my hands.
Oh steepster friends…how I have missed you and your tasting notes. Saturday I scratched my eye at work which meant I couldn’t see out of the eye or look at a screen due to the light but now it is healing and I can return to all of you…and my beloved teas.
This is a tasty blueberry cuppa with just a drizzle of brown sugar. It is sweet and fruity and really nice. A great introduction back to my tea cupboard.
