1565 Tasting Notes

This was never great, but it’s gotten a bit worse with time. The amaretto flavor has nearly faded, and there is a strange aquatic/saline quality, despite this being a black tea. I have enough for one more cup, but I’m probably going to say goodbye.

For some reason I never tried this during the actual advent season.

This is a nice nighttime option. It’s spicy and a bit citrusy. Warm and comforting.

This was not great. The ginger was a bit stale and dusty tasting. The lemongrass was muted.

Meh, not impressed by this. Had a vaguely fruity flavor, and tasted mildly like licorice root.

I would’ve sworn this was a peach cobbler tea. Definitely tasted way more like a stone fruit than a pear.

The dry leaf smells like blue cheese. Luckily, once brewed the blue cheese smell goes away, and there is no blue cheese flavor to be found. There is also no ginger or pear. This tastes like bananas. Like banana runts, not a fresh banana. It’s actually not bad for a banana tea….but it’s a pear tea, so I’m confused.

Well that’s interesting.

Being sick definitely helped with sipping through this. I enjoyed it, but I was always hoping to taste more of the aloe or cucumber. I did love the big chunks of both in the blend.

I prefer Cold 911 for a go-to sick blend.

This was just never as good as I wanted it to be. Cinnamon and a generic citrus/fruit flavor.

This is actually much more delicious than I was expecting. It’s a matcha dusted green tea, and isn’t bitter at all.

The peach aroma is strong and really juicy/authentic. The flavor is a bit more muted, but overall still nice. I can’t really taste the cinnamon, but it’s still an enjoyable cup.

Ooh, matcha with peach and cinnamon sounds interesting. I think I’ve seen this brand at my local Japanese grocery, I’ll have to take a look next time! :)

An okay blend. A bit of a fruity/citrus thing going on. A bit of cinnamon. I can’t taste any of the turmeric. Meh.
