1347 Tasting Notes
This is from a Sips by box. The flavor is mostly a pleasantly tart rhubarb. I also taste a bit of beet and some other sweet fruitiness. The resteep tastes like straight beets, so I would skip that. Cold, this is a pretty refreshing tea, and I would be happy to drink it again, but I’m not sure I’d go to the effort of ordering it.
Thanks to gmathis again for the sweet little package! Wow, this flavor gave me such a blast of nostalgia. When we were kids, on long car trips, we’d sometimes stop at gas stations and mix together all the various cappuccino and hot chocolate flavors they had to create delicious concoctions. This tea is that flavor! I haven’t really had any coffee in the intervening decades, but I remember that flavor well. I taste coffee and cream and maybe some chocolate? This is great. I’d totally drink this again.
Huh, this tastes like absolutely nothing. I guess I’ll drink it when I’m working out today since it’s basically water. It’s possible I should have gone with a longer steep, but I’m not at all familiar with corn silk, so I played it safe. I only grabbed one bag from the TTB, so I won’t have the opportunity to try it again yet.
I’ve been struggling with this tea because I really want to like it, but it’s not behaving. I don’t love it with milk, but I also don’t love it without. The last time I had it, I decided to sweeten it with horchata powder, which was tasty and made it taste pretty authentic. I’ve also enjoyed it with almond milk. I just find myself wanting more from this tea. It tastes like rooibos and a little like cinnamon, but I wish it were more decadent.
I like this black tea. It’s pretty deep and malty. The pumpkin flavoring is lighter than I’d prefer. I wouldn’t really be able to tell that it’s supposed to be pumpkin flavor if I didn’t know already. It’s interesting to have pumpkin in a non pumpkin spice context. I guess this tea is pretty squashy now that I’m thinking about it. My second cup of this I enjoyed even more than my first. The flavors are subtle, but super enjoyable and high quality. I wish I had more of this one. I turned out to really like it.
