328 Tasting Notes

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.

drank Black Tea by Shan Valley

I put off writing a tasting note on this because I thought I just made it wrong when I tried it the first time. The morning rush before going to work May not be the best time to try new teas… But, on my lazy Saturday morning the results were the same unfortunately. This tea for me has a little smokiness and was really strongly bitter. It tasted better with some creamer, but this isn’t something I’d buy more of.

drank Cookie by Lupicia

I love Cookie, it smells yummy and tastes bakey too. I got this teabag from the newsletter a while back. I used to buy this one in college, I’d kind of forgotten until I opened it up and smelled it. If I didn’t already have so much tea then I’d go get some of this next time I go up to Honolulu. I’m getting a lingering mellow vanilla taste which is totally going well with my pastry breakfast. It is really good with milk too.

I love Cookie, too! Totally envious – I have to travel very far to renew my Cookie stash.

I know the feeling, though the plane ride is only 45 minutes the inter island fares are too expensive for me to go often… it’s a good thing that tea ships :)

Anna

I can’t even have it shipped – they do have a lupicia.fr now, but they didn’t carry Cookie last I checked. Isn’t there a special discount for actual islanders on the inter-island flights? If not, that seems so unfair.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia

This a nice and tasty tea. Definitely got a strong strawberry taste, does it really have a champagne taste though? The swirly silver bits are fun too…

This was a good iced tea today, it’s a refreshing taste… Light but definitely tastes like the name. Not something I’d crave though, but nice enough.

drank Nutmeg Cream by Butiki Teas
328 tasting notes

This is the first tea I opened from the Amoda Tea box (which I subscribed for just cuz of the special Butiki Tea blends). I really love this tea, the smell and taste are yummy and very holiday eggnog like with the cream and nutmeg. All the cups of this I’ve had have been enjoyable. I’ll be sad when my little bag is all gone…. which will be soon.

drank SBT: Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

This one is really good, I get a nice fruit and cream taste. I thought that sherbet would be a little tart but it wasn’t, so that’d be my only gripe. I’d reorder this one…

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.
