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.

This may be my favorite chocolate tea now! I love chocolate covered Mac nuts… but I’m trying not to pig out too much on summer break. Trying. Really hard.

drank Chocolate & Strawberry Puer by Lupicia

This is totally a dessert tea, really good. Creamy chocolate and strawberry taste… A nice treat. Puerh was a little scary, after I’d had one sample that I could not stand at all and had to toss, but these flavored ones from Lupicia are good. So good that I think someone’s drank some without telling me…

A fruity smell, with nice tart cherry taste. I burnt my tongue :( drinking this. If I had more, seems like this would be good as an iced tea as well.

Yup, I need to either be more patient or train my tongue to be less sensitive to hot :) always happening.

drank SBT: Very Big Hill Dew by 52teas

Another kickstarter iced tea down! It was OK. It had a lemon/lime taste but not strong enough to me to really like it much. There was something going on in the background that didn’t taste too good either, just thought I’d like it more I guess.

drank White Chocolate Peppermint by Teavana

I did really like this as a sample when they had it at the Teavana store and I had gotten the holiday box this christmas. I do still like it, it’s got a nice chocolate peppermint taste and the peppermint has a fresh aftertaste that’s good but I don’t like the licorice at all. I don’t like it ever really, not real licorice. I hadn’t noticed at the store but I definitely get it now. To get good flavor for me, I’ve found that this is one of those that you should do the heaping spoons and put a lot – it just tastes better.

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.
