658 Tasting Notes
Cold-brewed again, for quite a long time this time.
It gets very limey and it is refreshing, but the lime starts tasting a little artificial. I don’t know. I don’t know if I am tasting the coconut, either. It’s interesting and it’s refreshing but I think I prefer it cold-brewed for less time.
Anyway, it’s a relief for there to be a tea I won’t miss terribly when it leaves.
I cold-brewed this overnight as I knew I’d be in a rush this morning. It was nice having something to drink as I got ready all too early for my liking.
This was surprisingly flavourful for being cold brewed. The strawberry was sweeter, and the white tea flavour came through quite strongly. It was alright but I don’t know if I would do this again. I can’t decide how I feel about this tea, but I think it is better hot.
So, the only time I’ve had this hot was an in-store sample. They said it was steeped quite lightly and it was alright but I wasn’t a huge fan. The warm + lime kind of bothers me.
I cold-brewed some today and am quite enjoying it. It’s really light and brewing it hot and then icing would lead to a more flavourful tea, but this is really refreshing and tasty and the right amount of lime for me.
I was in Tealish buying a Mother’s Day gift and that wall of tins of teas I’ve never tried was too tempting. I decided to explore the rooibos choices and ended up taking a bag of this home. It smelled incredible in the tin.
This smells incredibly tart and potent once steeped, but it was actually quite nice and creamy. A little bit sweet, but with just the right amount of tartness. Very flavourful but smooth and not artificial tasting or chemically. It’s a blend of red and green rooibos but I actually didn’t get any rooibos flavour at all. Just creamy lemon.
