Iced Tea Sipdown (268)
This is nice but tbh I think I hoped for this to be Cherry Snowcone or whatever the cherry tea I used to like from DAVIDs was. That’s a weird expectation for a new tea to replicate an old one but for some reason it’s what I wanted so I was a bit sad when this tea wasn’t that. So while I enjoyed this sample enough, I don’t think I need more.
This is the tea that spoiled my dinner seeing as I used it to make a hot chocolate which ended up being extremely filling and soooooooo good! It was banana and milk chocolate sipping chocolate essentially and it was perfect. I had a weird scratchy sensation in my throat when I drank it which seems incredibly weird but I wasn’t drinking it long since I downed this in no time at all.
I was sitting in the dining room with my smoothie mug from earlier and kept getting whiffs of a really good smell. I couldn’t quite pin down what it was at first since my tea was next to me and bananas were in the room. However, it reminded me of this tea so I pulled this out and decided it would be fun to try it as an iced latte.
Aside from this being the slightest bit Smokey, it’s actually making a really good iced latte. It’s got a whack load of banana flavor with some awesome vanilla notes as well. Not getting a lot of the praline but perhaps that’s where the smokey element is coming from seeing as praline is caramelized nuts.
Latte Sipdown (263)
My friend asked me to try a tea and so I spent yesterday filling a box with teas to send her. I thought she’d like this one so I pulled out just enough for a latte for myself. Then tonight I was lazy and this was premeasured.
I overpoured the water so it’s a little watered down but ultimately it’s got a rich chocolate coconut flavor. It’s very creamy which gives the chocolate a milk chocolate cone to it. It’s nice as usual, and one I’d revisit if I order from Bird and Blend around the holidays.
Tea Pop Sipdown (269)
The weather has warmed up so a teapop seemed appealing. I was exploring through my teas and this caught my eye.
Drinking it now though, it’s not my favourite. I’m getting a lot from the base which is more grassy and not the best quality. The strawberry is coming off floral and when mixed with the carbonation flavor, it’s perfume-y.
