329 Tasting Notes
An… interesting taste, and definitely too earthy for me. The smell was pretty good – I do love spices, but there was also something in this one that reminded me of eggnog, which is something I definitely do not enjoy, haha. I only had a 10g sample (and my mother took most of it), and honestly, this was plenty strong enough. I really watched the steep time on this one, and I’m glad, as this was plenty strong after five minutes. I’m glad I tried this (in my everlong quest to sample as much from DT as I can), but definitely not a repurchase.
Pretty standard Earl Grey taste, yet it’s one I’ve really come to associate with comforting – I could drink EG all day, every day. I have been hunting for a decaf blend for a while, because I really enjoy having this at night, but a caffienated version doesn’t do me any favours, so I was happy to find this.
This was a strange one, as it was another matcha, and I’m still not entirely sure how much I like matcha. I could definitely taste the pumpkin, but there was the expected grassy aftertaste to it, as well. It was good, but not one I’d likely go out of my way to get. There are other pumpkin teas that I like better. Still, I’m glad I tried this!
This is basically apple cider. Which is a good thing! I’m not really a big fan of apple cider, but I can appreciate what this has going for it – spicy, sweet and very autumn-esque. I’m not a huge ainse fan, either, and I know there’s some in this, so there’s that to deal with, as well. But this is totally drinkable.
This is a strange one… The smell is delicious, but it seems like I’m getting a different taste with every sip, haha. I like cranberry, and I like orange, and I like muffins. I’ve had numerous cranberry orange muffins in my time, and this tea doesn’t really taste like any I’ve had. Maybe it’s the addition of the dandelion and hibiscus doing strange things? I only got 10g of this to try, so maybe there’s more of those ingredients there, or something. And those 10g only got me one cup of tea (minus a resteep, if I so choose), so that’s also a negative. Not enough bang for my buck, I don’t think.
