467 Tasting Notes
Oh, this is lovely! The root beer scent carries through in the aroma and taste. I remember sassafras plants from my childhood going to a YWCA camp in Michigan. It brings back such good memories.
Opening the package, the scent just knocked my socks off. It is obviously fresh. This hasn’t been sitting around in a warehouse!! Rarely have I had a tea this aromatic.
I added a bit of sweetener to my cup and I’m in heaven. It has such a lovely smooth mouth feel. Almost as if there is milk in it. It does have the typical sharpness of rootbeer that I would expect. I’m really not sure If I can save smoothness and sharpness in the same paragraph but that’s the way it feels.
AKA Dwelling is offering samples of this with a promise of a review. You might want to try it! Yummy!

From the Here’s Hoping TTB.
This tea is not exactly what I was hoping for from it’s name. It is primarily a black tea with cinnamon. I taste nothing of the plum. The cinnamon does settle down after a bit but I still don’t sense any plum. But… cinnamon is supposed to be good for you, right? Not a bad tea and I’m glad I got to sample it but I won’t be buying it.
I’m enjoying a pot of Tardis while I watch the Doctor Who marathon on BBCA. The new season of DW starts in a couple days and I’m in my all-Doctor Who-all the time mode. Tomorrow I’m having lunch at the Blue Box Cafe (a local DW themed restaurant).
This tea is quite tasty. A nice fruity black. A little bergamot which makes it a bit Earl Grayish.
I’m not sure where this came from…. maybe a TTB. I’ve been drinking a lot of cold brew teas lately but I miss the “process” of making hot tea so I made this hot even though I think it would be good iced.
It made a nice cuppa for a mid-afternoon break. Nothing too exciting but still enjoyable. The peach and apricot was mostly peach. The black seemed almost more like an oolong. I wonder how long this has been sitting around.
My allergies are making me d-r-a-g my way through the day. I got out one of my favorites Yerba Maté Chocolatté! I am AWAKE!!! It always seems to have this effect and I wonder why I don’t drink everyday. I mean really!
Today I think this tea picked up a bit of mint that was in my last pot of my Breville. Oops! Of course, chocolate mint isn’t a bad thing.
I have been totally loving this as a cold brew. It is a nice mild flavor that reminds me of the cereal Popped Rice. I haven’t had the cereal in a long time so its sort of a nostalgic thing for me. I have been drinking tons of it. I am upping my score since I enjoy it even more as a cold brew.
I made this tea as a cold brew and forgot about it for TWO days. Hey, it was still good. What a miracle. Very nice peach flavor a bit of earthiness but I had sensed that when I had it previously. The earthiness does not interfer at all but it has less of an oolong taste than I would expect. Still a very lovely tea for the summer.
