100 Tasting Notes

The wife sprung this on me without telling me what it was. I am not sure what to think of it. Makes me think a bit of scotch – so I’m wondering if that is what she had before (yeah, it is)… A bit chocolaty. Very weird. I can almost get the nose of a scotch from it, and definite chocolaty flavors to it. I don’t think it is necessarily a good tea, but it is interesting for it’s odd similarities to a drink it should taste nothing like. Not bitter, not overly dry, just not very good.

Pretty good but not outstanding. Hints of bitter at the end. I can taste something faintly bergamot. That’s all.

drank Lemon Honeybush by Teas Etc

This is lemon Pez. Pez has a unique taste to it that I’ve always really liked and this tastes like the lemon Pez, though with not as much sugar. There’s a natural sweetness but not to the same level as Pez.

drank Magnolia Oolong by Premium Steap

It’s nice. Magnolia/jasmine type taste, smooth but a bit heavy. Not as light and crisp as I would like.

drank Rosy Earl Grey by Teas Etc
100 tasting notes

A very girlie tea. Mostly rosy and jasmine-y with faint bergamot. I wouldn’t really even classify it as an Earl Grey because of the faint bergamot. I really liked the jasmine aspect of it. It tended to get a little bitter as it cooled.

I thought this was a very odd combination of stout and smooth. Less harsh than other “breakfast” teas but with a lot of body.

drank Sweet Yerba Mate by Samovar

Wow. I can’t decide it if is vile or somewhat interesting. The interesting part tastes like fresh snapped peas (non-cooked)… that have been doused in cigarette ashes. Yes, I believe that is about as complex as this one gets. The green bean taste saves this from being rated lower. I am staring at the mug daring myself to drink more but my stomach says nooooooooo.

drank Bohea by Teas Etc
100 tasting notes

Good depth of flavor, very complex taste, smooth end, sweet, stout and can stand on its own (doesn’t need sugar and cream). It’s still a new type of flavor to me so it’s hard for me to rate this compared to others.

drank Orange Blossom by Rishi Tea

Full orange flavor with underlying sweetness. Sooth despite the citrus flavor. Slight aftertaste that sticks with you that isn’t bitter but makes me think of orange rind.
