192 Tasting Notes

Found this in my sample drawer last night while I was inventorying and organizing for this weekend’s get together. I don’t yet have something to shake matcha in nor do I have the bowl and whisk. Latte it is.
I’m getting a sort of powdery feel in the back of my mouth on the first few sips of this, not pleasant. Maybe I need less matcha? I put in 3 tsp like usual. Stirring doesn’t take away this sensation. I don’t know what I did but I don’t think I will be able to finish drinking this before I leave for work :/

Because this is one of my oldest teas and there is quite a bit of it. This smells like a jolly rancher.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
192 tasting notes

I had this one simply steeped a while back and it didn’t impress me. However, I am beginning to get into the “tea latte” thing and this as a latte, very yummy! I believe I am getting more vanilla out of this than I remember, it’s also the creamiest latte I’ve made yet.

I brewed 3 tsp in 1 cup of water while I had 2 cups or milk and some sugar warming on the stove. I put whatever amount of the milk fit in my mug after the tea and the final concoction is wonderful.

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA
193 tasting notes

The dry leaf of this smells good! I love pineapple and I do really enjoy it on the grill so I had to add this one to the cart when I was looking to restock a few items (yes I am there now!). The color of the liquid is also pretty, a sort of dirty, dark yellow. It also smells pretty darn good. Trying for a more educational sniff of this, I might be getting some of the roasted or popped rice that are listed in the ingredients. The taste is enjoyable I am getting the pineapple and could call it grilled (although that portion may come from the smell as you drink). I’m also getting an apple taste out of this. I did not have to add sweetener to this one, likely due to the candied pineapple along with the dried chunks. I must try this iced, even though my trials with making greens iced usually fail. Maybe a cold brew first.

drank Dark Chocolate Dream by Teajo Teas
192 tasting notes

Experimenting with lattes! This one is 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, and 2 tsp tea steeped for 3 minutes. It’s alright but I think I need to make the tea stronger to get more of the chocolate flavor I was hoping for, or maybe less milk. It still smells like a black tea. I do get a light chocolate flavor, not bad for the first of the day. Overall, this concoction is drinkable but needs improvements on my part.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
192 tasting notes

Cold brewed with 8 tsp in 32oz for 8 hours. The color is beautiful. I didn’t take the time to take an after picture. But the end product was a deeper purple than pictured. I feel like I want to mix this with lemonade and it would be wonderful. This is drinkable but I don’t really know what happened, it almost tastes disjointed, if that’s possible. When I take a sip it tastes like water and then the taste follows shortly after. It’s a good taste so I don’t mind, just strange that it’s not right when you take the sip.

Made this one iced. It’s been a long time since I’ve tried to brew a white tea. This confirms that I do need to wait until I purchase something that helps me control the temperature as this came out bitter. Until then, I plan to try this one cold brewed. What I can get out of this attempt is that this may be a light, pleasant tea with a blueberry taste. I feel like it has promise, just needs to be brewed right.

drank Mocha Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
192 tasting notes

3 tsp, 2 cups milk, 1 tsp sugar

Needed a kick to start off my studying today. For my second attempt with my first kind of matcha, not bad. I can taste the mocha and I think some of the “vegetative” taste that I have seen matchas described as. I feel like this was a decent way to introduce myself to the world of matcha. Looking forward to checking out the higher qualities and maybe some of the fun flavors from Red Leaf Tea.

Bio

I am currently a small town girl in a big city. I am graduated and am ready to take on the real world.

I am happy to have found Steepster. It gave me a hobby that I could devote as much or little time as I could during school and I believe that it will continue to help grow that hobby as I now have more time to explore.

I still consider myself newbie to the world of tea. I am still in the process of trying just about everything but have come across a few favorites.

Ratings:

1-49: Never getting again. Couldn’t drink the cup.
50-59: Finished the cup, but won’t get again.
60-79: Buy once in a while.
80-89: Will get more as soon as I run out.
90-100: Must not run out.
