1024 Tasting Notes
Another one from the Monstrositea September box. I love Russian Caravan so I knew this would have to be AWFUL for me to dislike it, so yes it was tasty but it didn’t blow me away. I’ve had more delicious RCs recently.
What I did get outta this was the fun adventure of finally drinking RC with a sugar cube between my teeth! It’s a bit like a timtam slam in that the first sip or two is great but then you gotta move quickly or it’s going to explode in your mouth. Sugar crystals for all. I tried with both a brown cube and a white cube and the brown one was infinitely better… so I drank a few more.
This was my Spring Cleaning tea today, I did a big blitz (and drank about a litre of it) before welcoming the two cutest elderly English cousins staying in my guest room. Thanks Airbnb! Can I adopt these ones?
I promise this tasting note is current, as in I’m literally drinking it. Right now. From my favourite Troy & Abed mug. And it’s delicious and it’s ALSO the last of my little sample of this deliciousness and that makes me sad, and also makes me want to resteep it again to suck the life out of this last brew. DO IT! YEAH!
Seriously though (oh that was fully seriously before too) I am so pleased with this cup and honestly surprised if it’s just white tea and mirabelle because that sweet fruity flavour is so strong. Definitely one I’ll want to add to the cupboard properly later on.
This one, though…
I AM A FAN
Yes this is good. Again I tried this a little while ago and should have written notes at the time, but I definitely remember being pleased with this and enjoying the blend. I do have a soft spot for sleepy teas, but this one is one I’d definitely consider adding to the sleep collection.
I AM ALL CAPS hahaha oh gimmicks.
I signed up for I AM INFUSION’s mailing list primarily in order to get samples of each of their four tea blends. One of them was in a Mr Earl subscription box recently and while I don’t get the box any more, I still keep an eye on their website to see the blends they feature, because I still like using the subscription boxes as an opportunity for education of what’s out there in the Australian small tea business market!
My main problem here is that I tried this sample a week or two ago and forgot to write any notes down. I honestly can’t remember either way but I’m certain I didn’t dislike it, however if I can’t remember it that clearly then I probably wasn’t nuts about it.
Still good though.
Sami Kelsh put this on my radar and I’m so grateful—I grabbed a sample of it last time I was in store thanks to her rave tasting note, and I’ve had it with a dollop of milk for dessert twice.
With a bit of choc chip shortbread, this was dreamy. A lovely black flavoured tea that I’ve managed to overlook in all my years of T2 drinking, huh!
I love it when a suspicion pays off. I did a 24hr cold steep of this sample from the September Monstrositea box and took the result to work with me today.
Yum. Hot sample I tried earlier this week was good, cold brew sample was even better. No sweetening required for either, I didn’t find it tart at all despite the card comment. Heaps of fun.
And those dried dragonfruit pieces looked like aliens, which wasn’t kinda creepy at all.
