drank Earl Grey Cheesecake by 52teas
688 tasting notes

These teas by 52teas smell amazing. Incredible. This is no exception. I only steeped this for for 2 minutes because lately every black seems bitter to me. It seems to have worked! I’m not getting any bitterness.

Thrilled the Earl Grey is not overwhelming. Actually the taste of this tea is much more subtle than the scent. I’m much more tasting the cheesecake and black tea – yay for little bergamot!

Thanks to Will Work For Tea for yet another awesome sample!

drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia

Thanks to ToiToi for sending me this sample!

This has a fascinating scent dry. I can’t quite nail down what I’m smelling. Just steeping now.

Yes it’s definitely a toasted scent I’m getting once it’s brewed. Not too sure I’m loving the scent (though compared to the Pineapple Oolong from earlier anything is welcome).

Hmm I don’t think this one is for me. The toasted taste just isn’t sitting quite right.

drank Gold Rush (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

This smells so sweet (and slightly like an Kahlua) dry and brewed. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but something drew me to this one.

Mmm I’m enjoying this one. Kind of butterscotch-y and comforting (maybe the butterscotch taste is the mulberries?). I don’t know if I could drink this all the time but I may keep it on hand for when I do feel like a cup.

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
688 tasting notes

Dry it smells like someone just cut up a fresh pineapple in my house. Pineapple is not my favourite – I like it, but I don’t love it.

Steeping it smells strangely like children’s grape Tylenol. That doesn’t bring back great memories. The scent of this one is turning my stomach but I’m trying to keep an open mind as it cools.

Nope this one isn’t for me. The smell is too much. I managed one sip and it tastes as it smells.

I didn’t care much for pineapple until I had a fresh, cup up pineapple. Tons better than the canned! I really don’t like canned fruit anyway..

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

Ah lime gelato. My newest addiction in my permanent collection. Oh sorry addition to my permanent collection.
Seriously, I have got a love affair going on with this tea – and so unexpectedly! I am thrilled they talked me into this at DavidsTea. And they said it’s even better cold (Even better?! Is that even possible?)

It’s just amazing. Not too sweet, not too sour-limey. Perfection.

I was just thinking that there should be more lime teas the other day! Lemon works, so why not lime?

This smells delicious! A sample I received in the mail today from Will Work For Tea (along with so many others!) :)
Just steeping now and I’m so excited to try this one. It’s actually my first to try from 52Teas.

And on a sidenote while this is cooling I’ve been cold brewing Blueberry Jam and Kiwi’s Big Adventure (both DavidsTea) since I left for work this morning and I can’t wait to try those ones a little later!

Yum, yum, yum :) I’m definitely getting some maple-y taste and as it cools slightly more pancake. Delicious!

Thanks again Will Work For Tea!!

To me this smells like fuzzy peaches, the candy. I’m only seeing foral ingredients but I’m tasting a light fruity tea. Yum!

drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA

Yum this smells like some sort of apple candy I can’t quite put my finger on. I’m getting a hint of apple in this one, reminiscent of an apple oatmeal flavour.
Perhaps I’ll try it iced before I leave a rating.

drank Rose Congou Green by DAVIDsTEA
688 tasting notes

So I ordered English Rose online from DavidsTea and I’ve actually never tried a floral tea so I picked up a 10g bag of this today at the store to prepare myself. It smells very pretty – just like a flower garden (what a surprise right?).

Here goes! Well it smells and tastes like a rose garden. But I’m not quite sure I’m fully sold on drinking roses. Perhaps by the end of the cup it will grow on me more :)

Profile

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.
