284 Tasting Notes

drank Strawberry by Lupicia
284 tasting notes

Ah Strawberry… smells great. Like the Strawberry Vanilla that Lupicia does, the strawberry smell and taste are strong and sweet. I liked the strawberry vanilla better though since it has that added creaminess. I got the one sachet sample with my newsletter so I can’t experiment too much but I’m sure it’d taste pretty good with sugar and creamer too.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

This was yummy. It was sweet without adding anything and had enough spice to know it was a chai but not too much that it was too strong for my taste. I was a little worried it’d be too spicy and burn but it was smooth and tasty.

drank Banana Pudding Black Tea by 52teas

It smells like dried banana slices! I like it. The brewed tea tastes like bananas and keeps the strong banana smell too, it’s slightly sweet and the coconut is pretty light. Makes me want pudding to eat too just to match up :)

This tasted good, but not exactly what I was expecting. The raspberry taste really comes out and there’s a vanilla smoothness. I cold brewed a bit too and that was even better at bringing the vanilla-y taste out to match the raspberry. The raspberry pieces are visible in the dry mix and the smell is enticing. Thanks to moraiwe for swapping! I wanted to make an order but wasn’t sure so getting to try this one out first is great.

drank Powdered Benifuki by Den's Tea
284 tasting notes

I got the little packet sample with my last order from Den’s Tea. It sounded so healthy I was worried it’d taste horrible lol, but it’s ok. It just tastes like mild seaweed. I may have used too much water, also the water was room temperature and neither hot or cold. Having things in it to suppress histamines, this might be a good present for my mom since she has pretty bad allergies at times. Wonder if it would help me when the vog is strong and I suffer with itchy eyes and runny nose? The little packet is the perfect size to carry around. Also, no clumps. When I plopped the whole thing in the bottle, there were clumpy bits so I thought it’d be like when i didn’t sift and my matcha has clumps and stick that way even when shaken but the benefuki powder dissolved really nicely. Not even a chalky texture at all while drinking.

drank Orange Dreamsicle by Tea District
284 tasting notes

I kind of forgot about my water when it was ready so it must have been a lower temp than 212 but it came out really well. It absolutely tastes like Orange Dreamsicle! I was thinking it would need some creamer and sugar to make it really taste like it but the vanilla and orange comes out strong without it. I might need to buy this… a lot of it. Thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet!

drank Stormy Night (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
284 tasting notes

Thanks to Allie for swapping :)
It’s a good thing we had swapped for more than enough for one cup because for me, the extra leaf was important. The first cup i made was too watery. Adding more and steeping longer as Allie suggested was better. I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would after reading the website description… and the chocolate melting left residue and oily stuff floating on the top. The stronger cup had better taste and I could taste the chocolate,cinnamon and coconut.

drank Buttered Rum (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
284 tasting notes

This was pretty yummy, all that’s left of my sample… I ate it with my breakfast custard long John and it was so good with it. Very vanilla and smooth, and like rum candy but not in that too sweet way. Definitely makes up for the disappointing Goji Pop cup I had first. I thought it could be the water making the Goji Pop taste metallicky but the Buttered Rum came out well. This goes on my list of potential teas to buy next order.

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA

This was not really as good as I thought it’d be though maybe it’d be a different story cold brewed. It had a tartness and also a metallic tang that was unpleasant. There’s still enough for like one cup in the tin.

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.
