drank Blueberry Pie by The Whistling Kettle
205 tasting notes

Green tea is growing on me. This was one of the 6 tea samples I received from the Whistling Kettle today.

When I sip it it tastes very creamy and then leaves with a grassy green tea flavor. The blueberry notes in it are wonderful. I really like how complementary all these flavors are together. Yum!! 0 calorie pie for a new year resolution.

drank Maple Cream by The Whistling Kettle

Absolutely excited to receive this in the mail today. The Whistling Kettle had it in a flash sale the other day on this and I picked up a bunch of samples too. Looking forward to trying them all.

I am not a tea purist. I added a bit of milk and sugar to this delicious dessert tea after noticing it was a bit bitter. I think a 4 minute steep was a bit too much for the delicate flavors. There is an interesting play with floral and maple notes. I like it. Looking forward to my next cup.

Needed a pick me up. These gloomy days are bringing me down.

Cuppa in hand, flat bread pizza in the oven, MI-5 on the tele = exactly what I need.

Still enjoying the sample of this Nicole sent me. It’s definitely a top tea for me. I like how smooth and simple it is. A pleasant cuppa for a dreary day.

I love Boston Tea Co. stuff. Haven’t tried a bad one yet.

I had wanted to order more of this, but they are out of stock online. I hope they restock soon. I only have enough for about 2 more cups.

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

Lemon Heaven is what this tea should be named. It’s a perfectly smooth and delicious rooibos. It reminds me of Adagio’s Lemon Cloud. It also reminds me of the amazing lemon meringue pie my grandmother used to make. WOW! Definitely a dessert tea worth trying. YUM! It made my Flikr Happy365 photo for the day. A bright tea for a dreary winter’s day.

Thank you LiberTEAS for this treat. Oolong is a favorite of mine.

Lovely bright floral and honey notes. Smooth and fresh. I love how mild the floral flavor is. It doesn’t overwhelm me. It is perfectly balanced with the honey. Brilliant!

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

Happy Hunger Ga…wait, I mean Happy New Year!

Some mornings I wake up knowing exactly which tea I’m going to make and some mornings I can’t decide. This morning, I thought I’d kick of the new year with the tea everyone on Steepster seems to adore. I picked up a sample of this when Verdant had their free shipping last week.

At first infusion, I’m tasting a smooth almost wheat-like flavor. It leaves a buttery feel on my tongue. Sadly, I’m not getting all the other notes Verdant lists on their site. We’ll see what the next couple infusions bring. Overall a good black tea to with which to start the year :) And may the odds be ever in your favor.

Update: Second infusion tastes much like the first. Going to set the leaves aside for later and brew up a different tea for now.

Della Terra has not failed me yet. I love how smooth and caramel-y this is. A nice caffeine free treat before bed.

Got this amazing tea infuser for Christmas. Love it! It makes brewing tea so much simpler and is easy to clean. Mine came from teajo.
