194 Tasting Notes
FINALLY a good tea for the evening. After 2 bad choices, I decided to go back and try this one again. I followed Nicole and Shang Tea’s advice and steeped for 1 minute. It made a huge difference. I love how delicate the flavors are in white teas. This one is smooth and light. Floral teas like this are soooo yummy! I could see this being a staple on my shelf :)
I’m weeding out my tea right now and trying to drink my way through my samples and choose the favorites that I want to keep as a staple tea. I decided to go for a sample Nicole sent me. I made a pot of this tea and wanted to like it. How could a black tea with coconut go wrong? There was something off with the flavor and I couldn’t stomach it.
This is my first maté tea. One of my good friends gave me a couple bags of it. I want to like it. At first taste I enjoy it, but the after taste has a fruity-minty flavor. As a person who doesn’t care for fruity teas, this is quite unpleasant. If you like minty fruit, this is a tea for you.
This was my morning cuppa today and it was a toffee dream. The white tea and toffee flavor blend smoothly to make an almost creamy decadent treat.
Thank you, Zen Tea for this generous sample. I wanted to order more during the sale, but it appears to be out of stock :(
This was the free tasting tea at my local tea shop. It was delightful. I almost bought some, but I have a bag of Della Terra Candy Cane coming to me at Christmas. I find that I really do enjoy peppermint in my tea.
This is the tea of my childhood. My mother has always loved Earl Grey and Lady Grey tea. It’s my comfort tea. A little milk & sugar makes it even more enjoyable. Bumping up my rating because I love this tea :)
Enjoying a cup of Eight Candles in honor of first night of the Festival of Lights. A divine way to celebrate :)
Just picked one of these up at IKEA yesterday. I LOVE it! I boiled water and poured it in to see how long it would retain heat. It’s been over 12 hours and the water is still hot enough to burn you. How can you beat $6.99? I look forward to taking extra tea to work and enjoying several hot cups!
Found this in my parents cupboard this morning and thought it smelled amazing. I didn’t follow the directions on the can. I made it the way I typically make chai. Added a bit of milk and sugar and it is wonderfully spicy and delightful. Already looking forward to my second cup.
I went to Ikea today with my parents. We stopped for a quick 99 cent breakfast and I ordered a 75 cent tea. Their only option was this and it tasted good. Not sure why Lipton gets such a bad rating. It’s everything I expected. Simply bagged black tea. Should we expect more? 75 cent unlimited refill tea should taste this way :)
Seeing that Della Terra has their Eight Candles tea 40% off today has me ordering more. That tea rocks my socks.
Time to kick back and watch It’s a Wonderful Life.
