10956 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm I think I’ve been brewing this for too long as previous encounters with this have had a bitter back end. Tonight I tried really hard to keep my brewing time for this as close to 2 mins as possible and that worked! As with most of franks cheesecake blends, this is more caramel than cheesecake but its a nice smooth caramel which is a nice change from the spicier pumpkin cheesecake one that I’ve been having of his as of late. It’s going to be a long weekend of testing for work so I’m antitipating getting through a few more of the teas I have kicking around the house that need to be tried for the first time and also finished off as they’re nearly done. :)
mmmmm this is a tasty bold tea for this morning. Lots of work to do today and this is going to help. I do enjoy this tea quite a bit. I love that there is no astringency in this tea even when over brewed. This tea is malty and bold but there are also hints of sweet as it slides down my throat. Looking forward to trying a few of the other blacks that Stacy’s got going on :)
mmmmmm now that I’d figured out my secret to success with this matcha i am loving it in the morning! Go go cold mocha delicious smoothie. It’s like having a frappacino in the morning only waaaay better! I really don’t know what i’d do without my red leaf matcha in the morning I just wish my order would get here already as I’m starting to run low on a few of my flavours. Bumping up the rating on this one a little since it’s totally yummy!
Mmmmm I didn’t get much tea today – in part from being busy and also from being paranoid about another spill at work lol had this when I got home after walking part way home in a skirt and bare legs lol yeah I’m a dumbass but whatever. The buses were really dragging today so it got me home a good 20 mins earlier and I didn’t have to fight to get on the bus :)
This tea makes me happy…though I think from a pumpkin tea perspective I do like the Della terra a smidge better. But this tea is also different. The spices are wonderfully strong and there’s that burnt brûlée taste that is really interesting.
Mmmm so i had this one this morning. After the incident with the tea yesterday I’m not confident in my ability to handle an open mug of tea at work anymore. Soooo the teas i’m drinking now have to be acceptable in larger quantites so i can put them in my sealed travel mug lol
I enjoy this chai quite a bit – it’s a little different than my others without being overly spicey.
So i finally found the perfect way to make this for my morning smoothie. 2 parts this and 1 part each of coffee matcha and cheesecake matcha. The cheesecake adds to the creaminess and the coffee cuts through the sweet of the mocha. So technically i guess this is a custom creation but whatever! I muck about with most of my matcha in some form anyway. I think the next time i order mocha though, i’ll either drop a flavouring level or just order chocolate matcha and make my own mocha with coffee and chocolate. :)
I really needed this this morning. I am usually at work at 7-7:15 and let me tell you, i got out of bed at 7:10. sooooyeaaaah. Looking forward to maybe being able to sleep in this weekend.
