From Yunomi

Coca-cola is a drink that many people are familiar with, but have you ever thought of its’ combination with tea? Using Japan grown black tea, sommelier Stephane Danton has creatively developed a fun cola-flavored black tea accented with bits of dried ginger and lemon peels. Are you brave or curious enough to try? If you add carbonated water to this tea cold brewed, it will transform into a refreshing bubbly summer drink! Stephane recommends making this tea cold.

Danton Stephane at Ochakara Tea Shop is a sommelier who uses his skills in the world of Japanese tea. He creates innovative fusions that enhances the sensational experiences of one’s “eyes, nose and mouth” to embody full enjoyment of deep and rich flavors while using a sommelier’s approach to wine to that of tea. Stephane wishes to expand the potential for Japanese tea through his innovative flavored Japanese teas!

Snagged a small pouch from the TTB and am just getting around to trying it. I kept it because the dry leaf smelled so interesting—the ginger made it almost effervescent, like cola. I’m not much of a soda drinker (it’s far too sweet) but I do like the spice blends and flavors in some craft sodas.

The steeped blend, though, is just odd. It smells oddly vegetal, and the taste is quite muddy and muddled. The ginger only comes through at the end, and on top of it is something more reminiscent of asparagus or savory herbs! I’m not getting any sweetness at all, or really anything evocative of cola. The Yunomi website suggests cold brewing it and adding sparkling water, so I might try that with the remainder of the package.

Huh, this is strange. It says cola and I can pick cola flavors out in the finish, but the sip is more savory and almost sage like. I can smell ginger in the cup, but it gets sort of muddled in the sip. This tea is confusing! Not really into it.

Skysamurai’s TTB Thank you!

I generally don’t like Coke. I drink one can per year, if even that much. It is usually too sweet for me. But that doesn’t mean I don’t drink flavoured sodas. I do, and too much in my opinion. And not only mine, but also my dentist said that.

Tea #4
But I have decided to try this one, because it is black tea from Japan which is rare (and good as well) and ginger will tame the over-sweetness.

Actually, I really like it. Yes, the cola flavour is very present. But as I have hoped, ginger is present and it is not that sweet at all. Luckily, the ginger isn’t fiery at all and it is rather adding some extra flavour.

It’s fine. I think I will keep this small pouch when I will crave some sweet tea (there are those days) and there are two another pouches in the TTB.

I have trouble with this one. Maybe it’s because I don’t drink much flavored tea but I just couldn’t get a good take on thus one.

Martin Bednář

I prefer non-flavoured teas, but sometimes I crave something like this one.

Cameron B.

Ooh, excited to try this if there’s any left when the box gets to me! :D

Martin Bednář

You can only hope.
I haven’t decided who will be next, because it doesn’t matter to me actually. Maybe I will run random script and let decide force majeure, ha!

2021 Homemade Advent Calendar Swap – Day 7
From Skysamurai.

I’m not usually a fan of soda-type teas, or I guess more specifically root beer teas. I think it’s the sassafras root that I don’t really like. This tea, on the other hand, tastes just like those cola-flavored Bottle Caps candies, and I’m kind of digging it. The ginger was more prominent in the dry blend but still present after steeping.

Flavors: Cola, Ginger

Only a few sips in and I’m already regretting this. When I first opened the package the smell reminded me of something medicinal. It’s almost leasing to the nose, in a strange way. Actually my sinuses are feeling pretty good after sitting here and smelling it. That being said it’s not really a good smell. Same with the wet aroma. Smells like something I should add to curry. It doesn’t remind me of cola. Maybe a little bit. to be honest I haven’t had any soda in a long time. The flavor is so weird. Slightly astringent, kind of gingery. If you like soda you will most likely enjoy this but I just don’t.

Cameron B.

Sounds intriguing ha ha. Cola does taste a bit medicinal to me, and the ginger probably exacerbates it.

Skysamurai

Do you want to do a tea swap? OR heck maybe we should start a box? I know I’m not going to have anymore of it but I don’t want it to go to waste if someone else will drink it.

Mastress Alita

I love soda teas, if you don’t want it I’d be happy to take some off your hands.

Skysamurai

Definitely sounds like we need to do a box. =D I’ll start getting it ready

AJRimmer

I’m always up for a TTB!

Shae

Um, did I hear TTB?

Cameron B.

Lol, look what you’ve gone and started! XD

Skysamurai

Okay, everyone! The post is up in the discussion area. =D
