Yay! Tastes good. Oh my goodness, this is such a busy week. This is a good tasting tea because I could tell what it was even when I’d forgotten what it was, till I got home to check. I love my hydroflask, still cold iced tea even at the end of the day in the car in Hawaii. I went to help with the food/supply distribution for peoples still trying to get by after the ‘tropical storm’ after work today. Cannot believe how lucky we are to have power and water when so many still do not.

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

This was a nice tea for my breakfast. It smells yummy and tastes good. I dunno if it all reminds me of cookie dough but it’s vanilla-y and sweet. There was an oily film on the top of the water but it didn’t affect taste at all.

If you spend $30 with them, you get their monthly newsletter with one teabag sample. It used to be 1 year but now it’s 6 months… http://www.lupiciausa.com/v/static/about/monthly-magazine.html

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
328 tasting notes

This was good today, taking advice from other steeping notes I steeped it long. Then it was more of a bitter dark chocolate type of taste. Uniform and dark throughout. About half through, I added some creamer to see how it would be and it tasted pretty awesome. I don’t see this as a regular one for me but it’s good. On a happy note, Hurricane Iselle took forever to downgrade but did just before landfall since the winds dipped below 70mph and it went a bit south. So it wasn’t so bad in Hilo as we thought it could be, winds were little scary and we lost power for a few hours but definitely fortunate compared to people in the harder hit areas. Not as prepared as I thought, next time need to buy batteries for the radio lol.

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea

Well I thought I’d bust this one open and try it while I’m just sitting around today. I’m not getting the cocoa/chocolate that people write about. It’s very dark and reminds me of coffee. I don’t really know what things it all tastes like right now but dark is a good descriptor. It’s ok but I dunno, gotta try it some more I think.

drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas
328 tasting notes

Nice… The lychee goes really well with the oolong. It just works awesomely like just before the floral oolongy taste would start to bother me the lychee comes in and saves it. I totally can’t remember who I bought this from but definitely happy to have tried it. I’m awaiting my butiki order from the birthday sales, it’s expected on Friday… It’s just that we’re currently waiting for 2(!) hurricanes so depending how that goes. All public schools canceled for the next 2 days so I’ll be sitting, watching updates and drinking tea today :)

Stephanie

This one is soooo goood. Also, good luck with the hurricanes!?

drank SBT: Maple Bacon by 52teas
328 tasting notes

I was a little wary of trying this one but….not bad. I can taste maple and bacon, a little less of the bacon. It’s still kind of throwing my mind that it’s a maple bacon iced tea so I don’t think this goes on my list of favorites though.

drank SBT: Almond Milk Iced Tea by 52teas
328 tasting notes

So, I kind of forgot to take out the bag and cold steeped this for like 3 days so I was worried it’d be too strong. Also the flavor I guess had settled to the bottom and looked a bit cloudy but it was normal after I shook it up a little. Flavor wise it was ok, tasted like a mild almond milk. Not the most flavorful SBT… not one I’m going to rebuy I think.

drank Milk Oolong by Simple Loose Leaf
328 tasting notes

I like this one more than the Green Terrace Tea Milk Oolong sample I had but less than the Mandala Tea one. It had more milky, buttery flavor in the first steeping. By the 2nd steeping I was starting to get more vegetal flavor. I liked the first cup, it was creamy, mellow and not over powering. Glad I got to sample it since last box was my last box of a 3 month subscription.

Oh, I like this one. Smelling it, it smelled like the Honey Black… Maybe even more honey than the Honey Black. It tastes great, like a honey roll. Definitely getting a strong baked bread kind of flavor. Thank you Green Terrace Teas for the sample! Out of the 3, this one is my favorite.

Hello! I am loving reading tasting notes and discovering a whole world of teas. My favorite type is definitely black teas. I prefer flavored, dessert types. I love sample sizes so I can try a little of each and have had fun swaps :). My bank account has been crying since I found steepster but I’m trying to exercise (find) some restraint and it helps that I know I’m not alone lol.
