701 tasting notes

Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one – and so many others I can’t wait to try!

I’m personally not a fan of eggnog, but perhaps I will like eggnog flavoured tea :) It does smell like eggnog. Like spicy eggnog. That must be the cinnamon.

Well it has that bizarre “medicinal” rooibos taste I can’t shake, but the aftertaste is quite nice. It’s reminding me of something I can’t quite put my finger on…

I’m still stuck on that ‘medicinal’ taste, too. Sigh. I want to like rooibos, because I need caffeine-free evening teas! And I am also not a fan of eggnog.

I know what you mean. I really love my herbals and greens for the evenings. Toasted Walnut, Hot Lips (though I’m wary too much of this one will wear it out for me so I’m careful), Genmaicha, Luscious Watermelon, Mulberry Magic, and Forever Nuts (similar to Hot Lips I’m careful with this one – too much can be a bad thing) – these are all great for the evening – I definitely recommend :)

Courtney

And Lime Gelato! That is one of my all-time favs.

Excellent! I just ordered Lime Gelato, Hot Lips and Forever Nuts, and I do enjoy Toasted Walnut quite a bit. I also ordered Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, which sounded lovely. Genmaicha is super tempting, I am definitely considering getting some on my next order.

Courtney

Genmaicha wasn’t one I was expecting to like and even after so many cups of it I can’t tell you what it is I like about it haha! Maybe that it’s just a nice simple tea. Good choices for sure :)

Thanks! The others on my order are Ceylon Star, Merry Cranberry, and Cookie Dough. It just shipped today, and it`s supposed to arrive on the 14th. Happy Valentine`s Day to me!

Courtney

Hahah I enjoyed both Merry Cranberry and Cookie Dough. Enjoy!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
