4629 Tasting Notes
This had almost zero aroma, so I figured it would be a total bust – but it actually tasted okay once brewed up! Light, but nice bergamot and other citrus flavours, with a medium black base without too much astringency. Definitely has lost some flavour at this point, but it might be better a little bit milder.
I have another packet of this, and can’t remember my thoughts on it – but this one tasted mostly like a jasmine you’d get in a Chinese restaurant, with just a touch of a darker oolong in the background. So not bad, but nothing special. Cannot taste the fruits listed (mango, apple, strawberry, peach) at all.
This had an odd almost minty flavour, combined with gingerbread flavours and some fruity apple – and the characteristic rooibos woodiness. Can’t say I’m a fan, but I didn’t really expect to be. This was a special blend for the December Amoda box (I think it was in both the herbal and regular boxes).
Gonna start another attempt at 365 tea sipdowns for this year – I likely nearly made it last year, but missed actually recording a large chunk after I returned to work. Might have the same problem this time, not much I can do.
This is not a sipdown, but a yummy tea. Light black tea, lightly chocolate, with just a hint of almond. Definitely desserty, though not my favourite tea.
Sipdown! Buuut it’s not in my cupboard, so it doesn’t count. It’s formerly mine, given to my mom, but my teas were stuck in the bedroom with my sleeping son, so I drank it! She’s not a big fan of blacks anyhow. I was actually quite pleased with it today – it was light and sweet, and had another yummy flavour note that is currently escaping me (my post about it was eaten by a phone that died, sigh.) It was better than I expected! Thanks again to LiberTEAS for the sample!
