6145 Tasting Notes
Advent Season 2021 Day 6
This smelled deliciously like Blueberry Jam by DAVIDsTEA. However, it’s not that. Instead, it’s more true to the fruit and less jammy. It lacks the sweetness that tea has. So when the comparison fell through I was disappointed at first. However, drinking it and trying to just focus on the tea without holding it up to another, I decided it’s a pretty good blueberry tea. Not too sweet, smooth, a touch brisk but not astringent, and distinctly blueberry.
Advent Season 2021 Day 4
Little late reviewing this because yesterday I went venturing way across the city (2.5 hrs on train) to see a friends new house and have a rainbow drink night where we all picked a colour and had to make a cocktail. It was fun because everyone went all out. You can see the pics here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXG0hD3uC3G/?utm_medium=copy_link
Before that I rushed out the door to do brunch just after I finished drinking my cup of this tea so I didn’t get a chance to do the note. I did post my tea pic though and you can see that here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXEp_aVuq1D/?utm_medium=copy_link
Taste wise, I feel like this is similar to day 2 in the sense that if you’ve had one pumpkin tea you had them all. Nerdfelt recommends adding a splash of milk and while I don’t usually (latte or bust), I decided to go with it. It had classic pumpkin spice flavour and wasn’t muddied or astringent which is good. But not a standout either.
Advent Season 2021 Day 1
The only advent I purchased this year is Nerdfelt teas because I’d never heard of the company before and thought this would be a good way to explore their offerings.
This is a good start because (1) the name made me laugh and (2) the dry leaf smelled awesome. The sample is only about 1 tsp which makes for easy sipdowns but means there wasn’t a second serving I could share or play around with. Oh well.
Taste wise I enjoyed this one. It’s almost jammy in sweetness. Distinct currant but not overly medicinal like currants can often be. I think that’s because it starts as currants but melts more to a generic berry flavour. A touch floral. Smooth. Overall a lovely introduction to the company. I am currently very content :)
