I seem to have a lot of caffeine free tea, not really what I’m looking for early in the morning when I’m trying to gate it together enough not to call in to stay home from work today. After some peeking around, I found this green tea. It tastes good… warm and light. Not too grass or vegetable like some greens are. Today is such a dingy day, rainy… woulda been a good day to stay home. But I’m at work, helping with testing like a good counselor.

Strawberry and cream! Yummy :) This is a good one, but I still have some other strawberry cream teas that I have so this one is not one I’ll have to order again any time soon.

Huh, this one just didn’t work for me. Whether smell or taste, was not something I got along with… which kind of sucked since it was the only drink I had so I kept drinking it at work today haha. So it was horrible but just didn’t appeal to me. Bummer.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

It’s a little cold this morning so I thought I’d try this one. I bought it from Shadowfall’s sale. It smelled yummy and tastes good. I don’t get graham cracker and marshmallow but the chocolate tastes good. Not one that I’m gonna buy later though. My sister bought dill herb dip and the smell is permeating the house! so I’m nose deep in my cup inhaling the good smells. Not that I don’t like dill but the constant smell is irritating, don’t like herby smells that much.

Soooo…. it tastes good. I get that oolong sort of taste from it. I wish my taste buds were better because I don’t really get all the tastes like grape or whatnot. It’s good though. Ah, Happy Easter! Tea and chocolate bunnies :). I did 2 steeps, I don’t know how people do more I just can’t drink that much.

drank Soba Cha Deep Roast by Steepster

Ahhhh… Good. I love this right now. The roasted barley taste is really yummy. I saw some reviews on how it tastes like honey smackers and thought yeah! That’s it! I’m happy this was the first tea I tried from the free steepster select box I got. Don’t know if I can afford to keep the subscription going but if I like the other tea samples as much, I think I’m in trouble :)

drank SBT: Orange Creamsicle by 52teas

This tastes just like the name! At first I thought that the orange taste was too sharp but it has grown on me or it mellowed itself out. I didn’t even add sugar and I love it. I don’t know how Frank does it but it’s such a good orange creamsicle taste.

drank Caramel Toffee by Octavia Tea

Why is the weather so weird lately? Took a nap and when I woke up for dinner…. sssoooo cccold. So I had this tea with dinner. It’s nice and warm :) the caramel toffee taste is tasty. I don’t think I like it enough that I’d have bought a whole tin of it. It’s good that I got it from my amoda tea box so it’s more sample size.

Thanks Tea at Sea for the sample of this! I like it as it’s a pleasant green tea. It has a very green taste but in a way that I like, not in a grassy way. It is mild, or maybe 3 minutes is not long enough but I liked it that way. I can’t believe the weekend is over already :( it’s the most time I get to enjoy doing nothing…

My kickstarter iced teas finally came in! It feels like so long, I was going to cave and just order some from the website since it seems that’d be faster but here they have arrived! I picked this one out of all of them because – c’mon just look at the name… It sounds awesome, I would order it for dessert absolutely. Unfortunately maybe it just was not possible to live up that. It does taste really good but I’m not getting a whole lot that reminds me of a pumpkin pie crepe with vanilla bean ice cream. I think I’m getting mostly chocolate taste. There’s a little bit that could be the pumpkin and vanilla but if I didn’t know what it was meant to be I don’t know that I would have it figured out. Regardless it’s a tasty tea and I’m glad I got 2 bags of it and can resteep it one more time.

This was so insane. The story behind this is that I was taking suggestions for bonus flavors to create and then having people vote on their favorites. In one round, I accidentally concatenated two suggestions “pumpkin pie” and “crepe with vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate sauce” when I was copying and pasting suggestions to the update where I asked people to vote on their favorite idea. Well, this new hybrid flavor won by a landslide. I did my best to create it, but I think there might have just been too much going on.

Haha, I’m pretty sure I voted for this one too! I like it :) funny thing is I just got the email for the shipping notification today. That’s why getting my package of teas was a happy surprise, especially since mail to Hawaii can be slow.

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.
