135 Tasting Notes

drank Guayusa by Runa
135 tasting notes

Drinking this now..LOVE it! Very smooth and clean tasting. I asked for this as my sample from New Mexico Tea company. I decided to go with just the plain guayusa, I figured I can always add spices to it to make it like the others. I had the first cup plain, the second cup I added 1 teaspoon of Verdant Tea’s Thai Fire blend for a little kick. NICE! I will diffidently be buying this, sucks I can’t buy it locally but this will be on my list.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec
The DJBooth

I have found Guayusa to be great as well.

drank Caramel & Rum by Lupicia

Got this as a sample from Teasuce. Its a nice dessert tea, and lately I have been wanting something sweet. I can not really make out the rum, but the carmel flavor is nice.

drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Thanks to Bonnie on giving this to me in a swap. It seems like everyone, this tea does not smell good right off the bat. I can not put my finger on what it smells like, but its not carrot Cake.
It tastes like raw carrots and apple with agave nectar. Yup, thats what I get…

Bonnie

I’m sorry! Hate to say it but most people don’t like it but now and then someone loves it which I can’t understand!

Ninavampi

This is possibly the worst tea I have ever tasted… How someone could possibly love it is a mystery to me…

So I received this sample from Amanda, and I will say I can not get s’mores out of this. It tastes like a smokey cinnamon stick. Not too sure I like this, but Im glad I got to try it.

Soo…David gave me this sample awhile back and I have since had this tea 4 times now. I like it, it grows on you. When I had it hot the lemongrass and lavender take front above the spearmint and peppermint. I am now having this now cold, as I did a cold brew on it two nights ago. The spearmint comes forward more. A nice simple herbal blend. I think I like it better cold….which is rare since I not an ice tea person.

Preparation
Iced 4 min, 30 sec

drank Sorapot by Joey Roth
135 tasting notes

Just received this today. I took off work early just to pick it up.
So I bought this from Amazon for $26.74, which was a steal. I had been watching it closely , it was $94.00 for a long time and then it dropped to $47.10. I had a gift card for $27.00 so I bought it. The description said that it had a few scratches but that was it.
Now looking at it, there is a tiny scratch, which is barely noticeable.
After looking at the reviews I have been wanting the Sorapot for 2 years now…finally got one at an incredible price!
The pot does drip a little and it pours slow then fast…but I can get over that:)

LiberTEAS

WOW! That is a REALLY good price. It’s a shame about the scratch, but given that this teapot retails for around $200, I’d say that at $27 it’s definitely worth overlooking a scratch.

TeaBrat

wow… it looks interesting?! Although I am confused by it, I hope it makes great tea!

Tommy the Toad

Thats AWSOME! you got a great deal.

BTVSGal

Opps..I meant to say barely noticeable. I had to actually search for it. It would be something that I would probably do to it in a week of use…

drank Wei Chi Cha by Samovar

Having the last of my sample of this. Still love this blend. Although Samovar is a little on the expensive side I have never had a tea from them that I did not love.

Teasuce gave me a sample of this today. Really great dessert tea. I put a little almond milk in it and enjoyed. Next I will try it iced.

Having another cup of this. Maybe I should just add some matcha and real marshmallows to it.
