512 Tasting Notes


Not bad for a rooibos! haha
My first note from my giant Zen Tea order, eep – I used it to help me sleep last night while playing Sims 3 (yay Steam Sale!)

The blend smells like strong rooibos but after steeped it’s a great balance with just a hint of lavender. Very enjoyable!


Hee! I bought that one too! I recreated my family, and the first thing my bf did in-game was hit on pretty girls downtown. Ridiculous. Guess I shouldn’t have made him evil.


Why would you make your bf evil?! LOL!


haha oh no!
It’s okay, I made myself insane because it was too real. I’ve only played for an hour an dmy bf already set the kitchen on fire while trying to make waffles and I freaked the eff out :D

Just like real life!


I love building my old homes from memory. Man, I love the sims. My computer is too slow to run it anymore though. :( I need more power!!

Thanks Keen for an amazing blend – I’m finally getting the chance to try it tonight after a crazy Christmas Eve at work. Oh business mad getting mad that we sold out of all the big gifts. Yesterday. Next time, don’t do your big christmas shopping on christmas eve? Ahem.

That aside – I’m drinking this tonight so I can stay awake for Mike to get home from work around Midnight! Then to sleep just in case Santa pops by.

The blend is very smooth! Surprisingly mellow (in a good way) with all that mint – I think the cinnamon cuts through to create a taste very pleasing to the senses. Thank you!



Glad you enjoyed this! :)

I’m still saving up for a Butiki Order, I can’t wait, but this will tide me over ;)

Delicately sweet, so flavourful, one of my favourite teas in the whole wide world!

Thank you Rachel for day #7 of the 12 days of Christmas! I hope it’s late enough that I’m not posting a spoiler ;)

I was pumped to make a pot of this and sip it all day, it’s so sweet and delicate but full of flavour at the same time. It’s so tasty, that I just received my giant order from Zen tea, but I’m not even touching it tonight ;)



Oh man. That sounds delicious.


I love your blog post. And I love the part where you wrote, “can I hear bottomless cups of tea?! holla!” Glad someone else thought that was neat, too :)

My first choice from the amazing day today, thanks tattooed!
I chose this one for it’s seasonal notes, how could an orange cranberry not get me in the Christmas spirit? :D

The spices are perfectly balanced and help to mellow the tartness of the cranberry! I would love to make a huge pot of this on Christmas day, it’s too perfect. Thank you!



I drank something similar this morning, for the same reason. Merry Christmas!!

Thanks BoxerMama for day #3! My tasting note is late but I drank it on the day. mm I loved the smoothness – I’m always excited to try teas from H&S because they’re so hard to find here!!

This one did not disappoint – very prominent smooth base with sweet black currant notes to add a hint of mystery! Love!



I have couple H&S teas in my cupboard. if you want to try them I can mail you some after christmas. When I place the order I had no idea what ounces to grams were so I order 7oz(!!!!!) of this and 4oz of everything else. lol

Drinking my resteep – you know that song feels just like I’m walkin’ on broken glass (Marry me Annie Lennox!) that’s how my feet feel after 2 10 hour days. So! To celebrate coming home, I had a bath (duh) and am drinking a resteeped pot from this morning! Yum!

I feel like this tea is juuuust right. :)


If you visit my blog post it has all the individual art work from the tea swap packages! :D


Wow. This tea swap looks pretty crazy. I can’t imagine all the work everyone put into it so far. :) It’s fun reading along.


It’s pretty exciting! I love having tea chosen for me instead of picking it myself, I wish it could happen like that all the time haha!


Yes I agree. This is soooo much fun. I love having something to open everyday. This makes me feel like a kid again.

Home from work!
Today I brought this one with me – it was SO good paired with my spicy pad thai from Thai express! Quenching, delicate but full of flavour – and man did I EVER get a kick out of today’s 3rd day of Christmas from LiberTEAS!!! Made my DAY! I’m still smiling :D

So I added this horrible listing to the database! Feel free to give it a good ol college edit to clean it up haha!

I have to say, I had an awesome time mixing up this deliciousness this morning. Light and sweet, super creamy as an iced latte – what an awesome 2nd day of Christmas!

Another package made with incredible love and care! Thanks Azz~!

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.

The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
