1118 Tasting Notes

I was in a rare maple mood, so had to jump on the chance to drink one of the few maple teas in my stash. This one has been sitting in my sipdown box, so seemed like a good choice.
The maple is actually much more mild than I thought, with the toasty rice being the dominant flavor.

Accidental sipdown because my cat spilled the remainder of the pouch. Oh well.

This cup is particularly bready, with a touch of white flowers.

This tea was an unfortunate victim of sitting in my sipdown box for too long. Because of that, it really picked up some strange flavors and just didn’t taste quite right when I tried to drink it.

This tastes more like a white nectarine than cherry to me. Not disappointed in the least by that.

I got distracted and overstepped this a bit, so it got a bit bitter. But, still a really nice grenadine/maraschino cherry flavor. I didn’t add any sweetener, but next time will try some honey. Seems the cherry would do well with a bit of sweetness.

Not much to add. Goodbye tea.

This tea seems to somehow keep getting better with age. The vanilla has become more pronounced. Combined with the notes of milk chocolate and cherries. What a tea drinking experience.

I like to keep 1 or 2 straight black teas at work, and this is currently one of them. It’s so easy to drink- notes of dark chocolate and honey. It’s currently a sipdown focus, but I’ll be quite sad when it’s gone.

It’s a sipdown morning. Steeped this for 2 minutes and added a bit of oat milk, and that helped to bring out a bit of the toffee flavor.
