Whoa. This is STRONG. I made it for iced tea.. so even slightly more diluted than normal it was almost too strong. There’s so much of it too so I’ll be drinking this for a while. This is my first tin of tea from Damn Fine Tea, it came with a cute magnet and all… wonder if all the teas are so strong. Smells great dry and brewed.

drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas

This is a nice tea but If I didn’t know it was pistachio ice cream I don’t think I’d be able to tell. It’s nutty and smooth vanilla but I dunno if I got a specifically pistachio ice cream vibe. All the same it is a good tea that is easy to drink.

drank Scorpio by Nina's Paris
284 tasting notes

This is a pretty good one, thanks for the sample Laurent. I kind of forgot it so it must have steeped like 10+ minutes but still turned out good. It totally does taste like peaches, apricot and cream but the taste changes as it cools. I tasted more cream when it was hotter and then at the end the apricot was strongest. I wonder how why they chose this flavoring for Scorpio? I would’ve thought something bolder but its nice. I like samples, I like apricot but not a lot so I don’t think I’d buy it to drink often.

drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
284 tasting notes

I wasn’t expecting much of this since I haven’t really like the white teas I’ve had a whole lot. I think they come off too delicately for me. But this tastes great. It smelled like toffee, it tasted like toffee – sweet and nutty, stronger than I was expecting too but not so much that it is horribly artificial either. I like it so much I didn’t ask if anyone else at home wanted to try… I know, not nice. Next time…

drank Quatre Fruits Rouges by Nina's Paris

Wow, this tea is sweet and fruity. I like it. The cherry really stands out and I don’t think any other tea I’ve tried so far has this strong of a cherry taste. It totally reminds me of some candy that I can’t remember the name of. I’ve been mostly drinking stuff that I’ve already had trying to “get through” the stash but wanted to finally try new tea. It’s a holiday today so I have time to enjoy the tea, good time for tasting. Thanks to Laurent for asking me what I’d like to try when I made an order. Nina’s Tea has awesome customer service!

drank Yuzu Sencha Green Tea by Wegmans
284 tasting notes

This is good as an iced tea. I like the citrus flavor that comes out in it. It’s pretty light and refreshing, I definitely think that cold is how I’ll be using the rest of this. I’ll have to see how it goes cold-brewed (more time for me to sleep in on the morning before packing for work). Thanks again to Jude. Now I should find a yuzu tea that I can get easily on my own :)

Last cup of this. Hopefully I’ll see it at another craft fair or some thing. It’s a nice green tea with warm, toasty flavor. :)

drank Yuzu Sencha Green Tea by Wegmans

I have been slacking on coming on steepster and doing the tasting notes. Part of it is starting up the new school year and the other part is trying not to buy new teas! It is so hard when I see the sales and discussions… This is the first time trying this yuzu sencha green tea and it’s a nice green tea. I don’t get yuzu strongly but there is a little something there. I’ve been obsessed with yuzu since I got a yuzu honey in Japan last year. It was awesome and I can’t find an online store that I can understand that I can buy it from :(. It’s a rare rainy day here so I could drink this hot. I’ve also been sick so this feels great to drink, very comforting and mellow. Thanks to Judy for swapping with me for this, I really wanted to try it!

I understand about not wanting the temptation!

Bio

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.
