1046 Tasting Notes

I’ve been enjoying trying all of the new DT matchas. I made this one as an iced latte with oat milk (as I’ve been doing with most of the new flavored matchas), and it was really tasty. It reminded me very much of a fruity cereal milk. I enjoyed it, but it’s another one that I don’t absolutely have to have on hand.

I absolutely love kabocha, and I have a newfound love of hojicha. So, I was very excited to see this offering by Yunomi. I bought 2 20gram bags because it was almost sold out, and I thought I would love it. While I do enjoy it, there isn’t much of a pumpkin flavor. It’s a bit savory, but the flavor is very mild. Still quite enjoyable, just not what I was expecting.

Finished off the sample pouch that I had with a small pot this afternoon. I didn’t add any sweetener this time around, and it’s not nearly as enjoyable. Very medicinal, and the rooibos is very prominent. Not sad to say goodbye to this one.

I’m a sucker for creamsicle flavored things, and this tea did not disappoint. It’s very much a sophisticated version of the familiar flavor combination. The vanilla is aromatic and creamy, and the orange is zesty without being sharp. Not sure what flavor the jatoba wood adds, I tried doing some research and can’t find much about using it as a flavoring. I’d imagine this would be wonderful with some milk added.

0/3 sadly. This tea doesn’t quite taste like juicy fresh pineapple, more of a vague piña colada. The least offensive of the three, but definitely not something I need to drink again.

This tea smells awesome. Like a raspberry/green apple sour candy. It just tastes okay. Despite all of the freeze-dried fruits, it tastes so overwhelmingly synthetic. It doesn’t taste like any type of pastry or pie at all, definitely more candy-like.

Another unfortunate disappointment. I love mango, and had very high hopes for this blend. But, much like the pineapple black blend from the same company, this just doesn’t really taste like mango. The slightly mango flavor smells like it has gone off? There’s just something slightly stale about it.

This reminds me very much of DavidsTea’s Lemon Smash (but with orange rather than lemon). I actually prefer the DT version. There’s a bit too much blackberry leaf in this version, and not enough ginger. Still a fine blend, but nothing really unique here.

I actually proclaimed “oh my god!” when I first tasted this. It tastes like caramel. Like exquisitely roasted nuts drenched in molasses. So flipping good! I expect this will be wonderful as an affogato, and will be trying it shortly.

Hojicha and genmaicha seem to make a perfect pairing. The toasted rice, and the mildly smoked/nuttiness of the hojicha make such a comforting cup. Caramel, hazelnut, and burnt sugar. I’m looking forward to enjoying this one at night.
