Latte Sipdown (647)!
Decided to blow through my whole sample of this to make one glorious, spectacularly frothy latte at work today. I had a tough time deciding whether or not to do it hot or iced, but ultimately went with hot because even though it’s really hot outside today it just seemed like this was just more likely intended to be drunk hot.
It was pretty good; I definitely don’t think anyone would be able to miss that the flavour here is sweet, creamy and cooling “Candy Cane” – it just penetrates through the creamy milk in a very clear way. I’m used to drinking a lot of candy cane black teas though and unfortunately I don’t think I was able to distance this tea from my impression of those ones as much as I should have because for the bulk of my time spent drinking this I just couldn’t help but think that it really lacked a lot of body and substance apart from the general candy cane notes. I mean, it didn’t taste bad – it’s just that by the time I had finished the mug I still didn’t feel like I had really been satisfied with the tea’s overall flavour.
Definitely a bit more of a ‘so so’ flavour overall…
