drank Mango Rose Duet by Tealux
24 tasting notes

Sipping this now. I could taste more of the mango when it was hot, but now it’s settled into a very pleasant, soft rose flavor. It’s a bit astringent but I don’t mind that. I had a whole rosebud in this scoop, which might explain the heaviness of the rose, but I hope the next go has a little more mango. :) Ultimately, yummy!

Oversteeped it a tad. Not so bad. The black tea is the main flavor in here, which I don’t mind. I noted a piece of chamomile in my scoop. :) Wish this tasted a bit more like how it was described, but overall a nice breakfast addition.

Sweet! So sweet! Smells very powerfully maple-y. I thought I was a sweet-oriented person, but this might be a little dangerous…

drank Genmaicha Japanese by Tealux
24 tasting notes

I’m pretty sure Genmaicha and I are going to elope one of these days. It’s such a comforting, toasty warm taste. I love the little popcorn pieces! I could curl up with a bottomless mug of this and die happy. (The way it actually happened was: I brewed a mug in the morning too late to drink it all before leaving for class, which is luckily right across the street. However, not being in possession of a thermos, my solution was just to take the mug down to class and finish it there. Why no, I didn’t look weird at all walking down the street like that.)

drank Bancha Shizuoka Organic by Tealux

Brews up to a vibrant light green color, and tastes vibrantly green as well! Grassy and delicious.

ETA: On an empty stomach this gave me tummy trouble. :(

This smells like brown sugar in milk! Silky, yes.

I didn’t read the ingredients prior to trying this, so boy was I surprised at the taste of the peppermint! I bought it mostly hoping for a really peachy mango-y flavor, but that wasn’t nearly as strong. I think what I’m tasting behind the mint is the honeybush. (Will drink again and come back later.)

Average semi-floral taste. Sweet. Not quite sure how to describe it? Easy to drink with my cold.

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA

I was expecting it to taste more like nuts than it actually does, but I don’t mind at all! It’s very smooth and cozy in the mouth, and I have a hankering for more…

drank Choco-Mint Black Tea by Tealux
24 tasting notes

SMELLS LIKE PERFECTION… in the bag. Once I steeped it, it sort of smelled flowery and bergamot-like? Unfortunate, as I hate bergamot! The first sip was nice, but as it cooled I couldn’t finish it. (I’m a slow drinker.) Maybe I just got a bad scoop, or maybe my cold is ruining my tasting sense. Will try again later, hopefully it will taste more like chocolate. Or mint.

EDIT TO ADD: On my second go it was much better—it tasted like tea, not flowers! Still not as chocolatey or minty as I was hoping, but much more pleasant than bergamot. Bleh.
