Made this for the morning with half milk, half water and honey. My throat wasn’t feeling so good so I thought the milk and honey would help it. It tasted good but the mess it made in my finum was not even funny. It was so stuck it couldn’t even fully drain when I took it out. I hope I’ll remember to use a filter bag instead next time. I’m not sure I taste much flavor beyond it being a chai.

I like this oolong :) it’s got a nice taste, not really strong even though it steeped for 6 minutes like the package said to so I was a little surprised at that. I like that it’s not like some other oolongs in that it has that strong flowery taste. This is more that warm, toasty…is it nutty? Type of taste. It’s not too sweet so it went well with my chosen breakfast of cinnamon roll loaf with frosting all over it… So good and yummy. And now to clean out my tea stuff. I would drink a lot more tea if someone would just make it for me on demand :D. Thank you for the sample, Temple Road!

I’m glad I got to check out the fandom sampler sale before all the sets were gone even though I missed out on the firefly one. So I got the Pokemon one and Sherlock. Some spilled out from one of the tins but I can’t tell which one but the box smelled good and it can’t be too much. I randomly picked out this tin and it’s pretty good. At first it was too strong with ginger and spice but as it cooled it was better. The cinnamon makes it sweet and I like the vanilla in it. Seems like it would be better with milk so I’ll try that way next time hopefully.

Yay, Spring Break! No students, no PARENTS for one whole week :)

This tea smells awesome and tastes pretty good too. Definitely nice cinnamon and apple taste. I made the mistake of drinking it with my McD’s breakfast burrito with salsa so the taste was a little funky but now that I’m done and ate cookies, definitely a nice dessert tea.

This is nice, it’s got a light citrus kick. Thanks to Nicole, for the tea! Definitely a relief from the tea I tried earlier, tasted yuck. This is a good one to have with snackies :) I’m trying to figure out what to eat…. I’m watching Man v Food and really want like 5 grilled cheese sandwiches. Even though the guy looks like he’s not going to make it, the gooey cheese looks sooooo good. My town needs a grilled cheese truck too…

Nicole

Oh, gawd. A grilled cheese truck would be the end of me.

So this tea is totally not to my taste. Is this taste the mineral taste? because it reminds me of that taste you get from blood… metallic. Did not even want to finish the cup :(

This was awesome! I got it in a sampler pack and it was hard to pick. I’m glad I tried this one as the first from Teajo because now I’m looking forward to going through the pack. I did it as an iced tea since I had made a green tea hot. I hated the green tea so I drank this to try get the taste out and it was sooooo good. Fruity and juicy, it tastes like I added passion fruit juice to it. I would buy this again.

I bet this is amazing. I love their mango tea :)

I am not having luck with the Shan Valley teas… I brewed at about 175 degrees so I thought it’d be ok. It really wasn’t bitter, just strong. It’s too bad that it was a strong taste because I didn’t like the taste… it was too much like I’m eating my lawn. I haven’t had a green tea with this taste, it’s totally not for me. I’ll definitely try again (in a while), never know maybe it was a fluke.

Thanks to Tea At Sea for sending out samples! I like this oolong, it’s got that floral taste but it’s not too strong for me. It was a really light yellow color when steeped the first time.. maybe it wasn’t long enough but I liked the mild taste and could taste a little sweetness. I steeped it a couple more times and it was good.

Tea At Sea does samples well, and the little cork sailboat is definitely cute! It’s a tasty black tea. It’s got a strong, yummy taste – a little baky, sweet – and went well with my breakfast anpan. Nothing about it that I didn’t like. Happy day… I love Saturdays.

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.
