328 Tasting Notes
Another SipsBy offering for the month of January. I was surprised to see another pistachio tea from Fava in my box so soon, but I love pistachio, so can’t complain. This tea has loads of ingredients that I love (marzipan drops and almonds in particular), but there was just something off about this blend. It’s not nearly as bad as the other Fava pistachio blend that I tried, but I’m still not loving it. It’s missing that marzipan favor, and is instead reading as a bag of mixed nuts.
I received this in my SipyBy box this month and couldn’t wait to try it. I’m a bit burnt out on chaos after fall, but I love moringa. I was very pleasantly surprised by the balance of spices- cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger are balanced very well. This definitely gave me a boost of caffeine, and none of the jitters I get from coffee. I always welcome the addition of moringa, it’s one of y favorite ‘superfoods.’ It seems Miracle Tree also has some straight moringa+flavoring blends that I’m very excited to try with my SipsBy code.
I’ve really been enjoying straight teas over the past couple weeks, and just placed sample orders at Verdant and Mountain Stream. So, as I await for this new orders [that I definitely didn’t need to place], I’m trying some old samples I still have. This one is from Autumn 2018. It’s really nice and mild, very much roasted corn. I’m finding it particularly pleasing today.
Flavors: Corn Husk, Vegetal
I made a nice big mug of this to take to work, and it was really nice to sip on throughout the day. I’m currently working out of a different shop, so I don’t have my kettle or tea ware to make tea throughout the day, so I have to decide on one tea to last me all day. It’s definitely something I need to adjust to.
