127 Tasting Notes
From the christmas tea stash
Fair the middlin, is what we call that in this part of Scotland…. It’s just alright, really. There is definitely a hemp flavour in there, but I can taste some other flavours outside of that and chamomile… cinnamon maybe? Looking up the ingredients that must be it indeed. The further I got into the cup, the more the tea grew on me.
Not catching that rum this tea advertises to taste like. However, it is a really nice fruity tea with hints of spices. It has flavours of berry and raisin, maybe some cinnamon? It’s warming and sweet, easy to drink.
Flavors: Berry, Cinnamon, Hibiscus, Raisins
From the pile of loose teabags I got for christmas
I have no idea what is in this tea. Not even after drinking it. I don’t know what the flavour is, but regardless it is not good. I think there is a hint of nettle, and maybe lemon balm? It has a herbal medicine kind of taste, which might be it’s main purpose given it’s name (stomach-nice, making a pun with stomach-ache in Dutch)
Nope. nope. I have poured out most of this.
My flatmate moved out and left this tea. My other flatmate has claimed the cannister, but I managed to get a cup. I get that this is a common tea for people to enjoy, but having never had it before… the smell of bacon is an odd one for tea, so is the flavour which I can only liken to whisky.
I don’t think it’s for me, to be honest, happy to let my flatmate keep this one.
Flavors: Smoke, Whiskey
I think, perhaps, that black tea and apple should not be paired. The bitter of the black tea makes the apple taste rotten, in my opinion. I did not finish the cup, ever after significantly sweetening it, as I could not get over the flavour of fermentation.
First tea of 2023… yikes. happy new year to everyone reading this!
