771 Tasting Notes
Apparently I’ve had this before? At any rate, based on the suggestions of Steepsterites on the discussion board about coconut tea, I bought 100g of this and I’m glad I did. I had some at work on Wednesday and it was delicious. I’ll be happy to drink down this bag (and probably fast because, you know, coconut).
I can also only assume certain things about this tea because the bag I got, purchased online, has everything only in french. As does the other tea I bought, which I vaguely remember being maple tea and am going to have to send through a translator to be sure.
Sipdown! This was better than I remember it being so I’m going to bump the rating. I don’t know why it has gotten better with extreme age but I like it a whole lot more than my current rating of 56 would suggest. It’s not my favourite thing but I will miss it if only because quince reminds me of my grandmother (RIP) and that’s always a wonderful memory.
I still love this tea but for whatever reason it’s a whole lot maltier and…thicker mouthfeel and just darker than I remember it being. Not that it’s a bad thing. Perhaps age is doing it? I bought this tin a while ago. It’s still good, just I think my own tastes have changed and I’m back in search of a favourite vanilla tea although Queen Mary’s Creme Brulee may have taken the spot.
Despite previous poor reviews (all 2 of them), I’m finding this tea to be pretty interesting and tasty. I sweetened it a bit, and added milk, which may have helped. It’s very fruity with a definite black undertone. I can’t taste the yerba mate that is supposedly in it, thankfully. I wouldn’t say it’s a spectacular tea that I’d buy again (it came in one of my Sips By boxes) but it’s interesting that I’ll keep the rest and drink it down.
Very tropical, with the pineapple and the coconut but the hibiscus just ruins everything for me. Turns it sour instead of sweet and fruity. Into the free box it goes. Perhaps someone who doesn’t loathe hibiscus as much as me will enjoy it
