drank Milk Oolong by Mandala Tea

Wow, I can see why this tea gets great reviews! It’s like I added coconut milk to some nice oolong. And it’s an oolong that isn’t too floral or vegetal for me. The creamy coconut smell and taste is mmmm. I’m happy to have finally tried Mandala Tea, definitely worth it.

This tea is pure awesomeness!

drank Rooibos by Steepster

Don’t think I’ve had straight rooibos before. It has this tinge that reminds me of something…medicinal? Also is very woodsy. Not so much a fan…but not undrinkable either.

drank Sencha with Matcha by Steepster

Super tasty! The combination of green teas makes this one really good. It’s thicker than just tea and more savory. I think that matcha makes it have a cool slightly cloudy green look. Only thing was that it seemed to suck up a lot of water while steeping leaving less than I thought I’d have in my cup. More water next time?

drank White Peony by Steepster

It’s alright but not a tea I particularly care for. It has that veggie taste but it’s not unlikeable or a taste that I really dislike. It’s a light tea.

drank Summer Apricot Ceylon by Steepster

This is a winner :). It tastes better as it cools and I think I’ll have the rest as an iced tea. Sweet apricot and peach, it’s a very tasty tea overall.

drank Earl Grey by Steepster

This smells really good – very lemony. The taste was really bad at first but that’s probably because I just blindly put the whole packet in a filter for one cup which was too much. Last box, it was 2 packets of each tea and you just put a packet per filter (10 packets total). This one is 5 packets so I guess we are to split the contents. Didn’t realize that till I was looking for this tea to input the tasting note and read it on Skulleigh’s note that it’d changed. I adjusted for the second cup and it was much better. I guess I should have paid more attention myself, but some note really would have been good to include when things changed. It was a good earl grey with strong citrus taste after all.

drank Rare Orchid Oolong by Tea Source

Not bad. I don’t think I like oolong too much in general because of the floral taste. This one is not too strong though, so it’s alright. Nice, mellow, warm… but not something I would need more of.

drank Dark Chocolate Dream by Teajo Teas

This was pretty good. Strong chocolate taste, but gotta watch steeping time because my first try was bitter. My second try with shorter steep time was not bitter and more enjoyable.

drank Dark Chocolate Mint by Teajo Teas

Definitely more mint than chocolate. I couldn’t taste the chocolate till after sipping, more like an aftertaste? The leaf totally puffed up in steeping, I was a little worried it’d taste horrible because I had too much leaf but it was alright. Not going to be one of my favorite teas so far but it’s not bad. Not really what I was looking for right now, need something sweeter…

Ah nice, smooth & smoky, but I think I’m getting tired of it. That’s why it’s definitely better to buy in small amounts for me… I really want to drink it down but not enjoying it so much any more. Smoked out? Maybe. Eh, but just got like a couple cups I think. No more smokey teas for me for a bit.

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.
