Lots of ups and downs in life lately. My company and my dog are all sleeping. Time to have a little help with sleep. I love this tea.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana

First attempt at a tea pop. 3 tsp in 8oz for 2 min, some ice and 2 cups of sparkling mineral water. Ended up tasting very watered down and I think I need to find a different source of bubbles as this was pretty flat.

drank Maple Sugar by DAVIDsTEA
199 tasting notes

Due to the lower rating and the hit and miss nature of black teas for my current palate, I decided to make this sample as a latte. The smell tingles in my nose in a mostly pleasant way. Taste wise, it seems as if something is missing, possibly as this is an old sample. Maybe I want more maple because I like syrup. Happy to have tried this but with so many out there yet to do the same with, this won’t make it on an order.

drank Pure Chai (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
199 tasting notes

Today is a treasured day off. Planning to use it to get caught up on studying and drink down some of my samples and older teas. Made this sample one as a latte as it is becoming my morning ritual to do so while I put dishes away. I’m not usually a fan of Chai teas but as a latte this is more than just drinkable. I get the cinnamon and maybe a tiny bit of heat but that is mostly hiding. Overall, tasty for someone who usually doesn’t reach for something “spicy”. I’m not going to rate this one as I don’t plan on buying it again.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Pu-erh Vanilla Mint by Rishi Tea

Tea Latte, kind of strange as I don’t get the vanilla but I definitely get the mint. Mint with Milk? Don’t think I’ll do that again.

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA
199 tasting notes

Did this as an overnight cold brew. I added Truvia right before I walked out the door to work. That was the only part that was unpleasant as doing that made it grainy. I find this blend to be quite interesting and look forward to more experiments this summer with it.

drank Serenity Now by DAVIDsTEA
199 tasting notes

The “leaf” of this one is gorgeous. I get a strawberry/apple smell from it with something that I can’t identify and can’t decide if I like it or not. It tastes more apple-y than strawberry sadly (at least this cup, I can see different scoops of different “leaf” materials changing the taste). I think I’m also getting a floral taste out of this, which is strange for me. The addition of Truvia brought out even more fruit flavor, tasty!

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

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 :/

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA

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
199 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.

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.
