250 Tasting Notes

Honestly, this blend was kind of lackluster for me. It smells heavily like banana but its more of an aftertaste to me. I didn’t get the desserty aspect either so it tasted like mushy bananas and black tea watered down with green tea.

Flavors: Banana, Tannic, Watery

Black and green blends rarely work for me either.

While I like this blend, I was rather disappointed by it; I like a lot of Brutaliteas blends but this one hardly tasted like a blend and more like a genmaicha (I know genmaicha is technically a blend but you know what I mean). While the genmaicha aspect is nice and cozy, I’m not getting much raspberry or rose if at all. I was super excited for this one because I love strawberry genmaicha blends like the Toast and Strawberry Jam one that Dessert by Deb had a while back. Now I’m kind of glad that I only got a sample of this one.

Update***

When it cooled completely, I faintly got the berry but still no rose, rating remains the same.

Flavors: Flat, Honey, Malt, Toasted Rice

Forever my favorite blend, introduced to me by Cameron B! I never run low on this blend… I buy it by the lb lol. I can’t go a day without it, I even brought a 42 oz travel mug of it to campus today.

Ummmmm I was a little skeptical of this one at first because of my love/hate relationship with non-masala chai spiced blends. However, as soon as I smelt this tea in the mug I was in LOVE! It was the perfect mix of spice and syrupy baked apple for me and my tastes!

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Clove, Honey, Pastries, Syrupy

That sounds wonderful. Apple is my favorite tea fruit, when it is done properly.

I might have to trouble you for a sample of this at some point, apparently it’s been 9 years since I last tried it LOL.

Bio

My name is Gabriella but everyone calls me Gabby! I am a 20-year-old college student living in NY, majoring in History and Elementary Education. In my spare time, I post reviews and little pieces of writing on my blog, read books, play video games, write poetry, and love to cuddle up with my two-year-old hound dog Buddy.
I have interesting tea preferences, to say the least:
Definitely a mood drinker, and I tend to change my preferences often, if I have a bad experience with a specific flavor or tea type I end up avoiding it for a while, then dive back in later. I also prefer my teas plain but will sometimes make lattes.

Flavor Preferences:

Fruit: mainly melon, berry, and apple flavors are my favorites. I’m allergic to pineapple, passionfruit, and kiwi.
Dessert: Almost all flavors dessert-wise are welcome I especially love warm and comforting flavors like caramels, chocolates, cookies/biscuits, crumbles, and muffin.
Floral: I prefer violets, lavender, roses, and mallow flowers. Open to all florals, allergic to dandelions.
Spices: I love lightly spiced blends but some like the infamous Hot Cinnamon Spice is too much for me.
Herbs: My favorites are mint, rosemary, sage, thyme, and sometimes basil.
Favorite Companies:
Harney and Sons
Simpson and Vail
White 2 Tea
Plum Deluxe
Trader Nicks
Friday Afternoon
