1120 Tasting Notes
This really does taste like some kind of chocolate pear dessert. Not quite a cake, but perhaps a pear tart drizzled in chocolate and caramel. There’s quite a strong caramel note, and the chocolate is distinct but not overwhelming or synthetic tasting. The pear flavoring isn’t my favorite, and is bordering on artificial. There’s a slight banana note to it as well. It’s quite sweet, and would probably do better as a latte.
Another cold brew. It’s been so hot, so I’m finally trying many of the teas that are better suited iced. Not getting any peach, which is strange because there were plenty of big freeze dried pieces. Mostly spearmint, with a hint of lemon. Much like Kiwi Mojito, it’s a perfectly fine blend, but mint just isn’t really my thing.
I’ve tried this one on two separate occasions, and I pretty strongly dislike it, despite consisting of flavors I generally love (orange blossom, honey, almond). The first time, it somehow tasted like pencil shavings. This time around, it has a strong alcohol flavor that overpowers everything else.
I’m not huge on mint, but if I am going to drink it, it’s generally iced. As it’s been approaching 90degrees+ here, I decided to make a nice big cold brew pitcher of this….and I forgot it in the fridge for 36 hours. I thought for sure it would be bitter, but decided to try it anyway. Surprisingly, not too bitter. The lime and spearmint are very refreshing, and I can taste just a bit of the kiwi. I would’ve liked more of the fruitiness to come through, but overall a nice refreshing iced tea.
