85 Tasting Notes
This was my second go to today as I battled the day of interview hell (8 in total and a lot of miles put on my poor vibe). I made this as a delicious ice tea and packed it away in bag to travel with for the afternoon. It was a welcomed melon friend as I traveled to my last five interviews, after this I had to settle for the plain water I also brought along.
Flavors: Green Melons, Melon, Smooth, Sweet
Today was a long and stressful day with many hours spent in the car, school hoping from one interview to the next. I had a grand total of 8 interviews today and I am tired. Needless to say, I needed something that would start my day off with a punch and this was my go to. I enjoyed sipping it as I drove to my first meeting this morning, while I drove to my next interview, and after ward on my way to my third.
I just love how this tea makes me feel and the orange flavour is delightful!
Flavors: Orange, Smooth
After trying this tea hot and not finding it very strawberry, flavoured I wasn’t overly sure how I felt about it. I read others reviews on how they loved the flavour but had it iced instead and wondered if this would be the best route for this tea.
I set up my ice tea press and prepared to jump in the car with it as I traveled over the weekend to visit family. I am not sold on this tea. I did not pick up the strawberry even in the ice tea form, but I did pick up a lot of rosemary. My oldest is happy I am not enjoying this because as she claims “more for me.”
Used the last of this to do a cold brew over night. It has a smooth and yet sour taste which is fantastic. Not really picking up much strawberry other than the colour. It is still really good and I rather enjoy the flavour of the cold brew.
Flavors: Lemon, Smooth, Sour
I also purchased this today while out mug shopping. I had not expected to buy any tea leaf while I was there, but I couldn’t pass this up after smelling the sniffer in store. While I will admit, the aroma wasn’t what sold me on the tea, it was the idea of a warm pear drink.
Dried the scent comes across as artificial with hints of candied papaya. Brewed the liquid is a clear yellow with a sweet cider aroma. I am now half way through the tea and have picked up on several flavours that enjoy dancing across my taste buds; it first started off as sweet papaya mixed with tropical fruits, later I started to picking up the pear and hints of peach.
Flavors: Peach, Pear, Sweet, Tropical
Visited my local DavidsTea in search of the new mugs, I need to have the blue egg shell sheep mug. I toyed with the idea of getting the colour changing sheep mug instead but stuck with my original plan. While I was there, I also bought 50g of the Wild Strawberry tea at the request of my oldest.
Dried, I found the scent of the leaf to be very similar to the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait with a very creamy strawberry candy scent. Brewed the liquid becomes a clear rose colour with a sweet creamy aroma. Taste wise, I picked up more of a sweet apple and hibiscus flavouring.
I was hopping for more of a strawberry taste. My oldest absolutely loved her cup of tea. Before I give over the remaining bag of tea to her, I want to try it iced.
Flavors: Apple, Hibiscus, Sweet
