Recent Tasting Notes
Goodbye to one of the oldest teas in my cupboard. This is much better as a smoothie or a latte so today is a bit of a disappointing send off. Having the last teaspoon plain and though it is nutty and warm, it is lacking the sweet creaminess of the vanilla. Still, with so much tea incoming, I figured it was time to say goodbye.
I have owned this tea for a long time…as in 3 years or so. It is actually the first tea I had as a bubble tea/bubble tea latte and I loved it. When I moved back to Toronto, my roommate and I actually split what we had of this so for the longest time it was just hiding in an unmarked plastic bag shoved in the darkest corner of my stash…until today when I was trying to think of what would go well with peanut butter and vanilla pudding and I remembered this tea. Turns out it was a great call because this tasted like a milkshake dessert. Creamy but with a nutty/baked goods flavor. And, the frozen fruit really took a backseat to the tea and other components in the smoothie which is actually quite unusual. All in all, I was pretty happy with it and this tea is still delightful.
