drank Cashew Turtle by 52teas
379 tasting notes

there is something in this tea that is not alright with me. the ingredients list doesn’t give me a hint… my only thought is that perhaps coffee (which i am nastily allergic to) might have been added as a chocolate enhancer?

in any case… i believe i am done with tea drinking today as everything i put in my mouth makes my stomach hurt. =0(

has anyone else had this experience with this tea?

Lala

Oh no! Tea tummy is the worst!

Stephanie

ugh, that sucks :(

No coffee. Not only do I despise the stuff, but I don’t put anything in my teas that is not on the ingredients list. Local ordinances require me to list all the ingredients in order by weight (I have to weigh each ingredient in a blend and whatever constitutes the most weight is listed first, etc.).

I do hope you feel better.

There ARE cashews in that blend. If you’re allergic to coffee, maybe you have a nut allergy too?

JustJames

no, i’m fine with nuts… love cashews actually! but i do have an autoimmune disease which, sadly, does generate allergies. maybe a new one has crept up =0(

CHAroma

Aww, so sorry this one didn’t agree with you. :(

JustJames

it was just very unexpected… i do have new allergies crop up. it smelled lovely!

A good friend of mine on here kindly asked me to do the Steepster world a favour and list my allergies front and center (fair enough, lol):

-COFFEE … rare, nasty, not even a bit funny if i’m exposed. (call me original)

-ROOIBOOS … is a new appearance. under certain circumstances i’m okay with it (ie if it’s GREEN and paired with mate) but because i have an auto immune disease i try not to poke at things.

*NOT an allergy, but an abnormality that drives my tea buddies bananas, i AM INCAPABLE OF TASTING CARAMEL AND TOFFEE. so i thought i’d list it at the top too. it’s very annoying. they smell great!!?

Hi! I’m James!

I’m a student: double major of human geography and psychology with the intention of chasing a double doctorate. (reading that over it occurs to me again that i must be crazy).

i’m a live and let live sort. i look and see alot of silver linings. my discovery of tea has only served to further that viewpoint. for me tea is art and nuance, watercolours and bold brushstrokes….

swaps are grand things! the element of surprise in a tea swap completely trumps forrest gump’s chocolate box life metaphor, lol.

favourites: french teas dammann freres, mariage freres and nina’s paris especially.

i have recently discovered a german tea company that has romanced me: tea gschwendner (sp?)

mandala teas is brilliant and a company i count on.

justea and tealet are companies i study because of both their exceptional products and and business models, as well as their work with farmers who are TOO POOR for fair trade certification. this is highly relevant to my studies.

90-100 i need more
80-90 i might need more, or it might be a respect vote
below 75? it was likely an oops buy. my evolution into french teas has vastly focused what i like!!

however, i’m always open to trying things.

dislikes so far: guayasa, darjeeling, most peach teas.
