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 :)

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.

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…

drank SBT: Cucumber Melon by 52teas

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

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…

drank SBT: Pink Lemonade by 52teas

This one is pretty good but not especially memorable either way. At least I don’t hate it… but I was hoping for stronger pink lemonade taste.

Had this for my morning tea with cookies. This is a good dessert tea but better to go short on the steeping time, I left my first cup for a tad of 3 minutes and it was too much, bitter. This second cup hits the spot, slightly sweet and creamy chocolate taste. I love the weekend so sad that tomorrow is Monday… but on the plus side, my Verdant Tea Black Friday order should be coming in :)

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

So this is IT for my bag of Yu Lu Yan Cha Black that I’d bought last year from Verdant Tea. It’s been fun, I’m sad to see you go but excited since I totally bought a lot of tea from this year’s Black Friday sales! This tea iced or hot is good but I made less mistakes cold brewing than hot. At times, I think I steeped too long and it got a little bitter and hard to drink a lot of… but I like the dark, little chocolaty taste of it and it’s got a nice strong taste.

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.
