576 Tasting Notes

Woefully, this is a sipdown. It’s probably a year old at this point and the flavors have certainly mellowed with age. In my last tasting note, I said this blend reminded me of raspberry thumbprint cookies. The flavor is much less specific now; the raspberry is more generic juicy berry and the cashew cookiness is a general nuttiness. This blend is still delicious and I got a solid three steeps out of it, but it’s a good thing I have finished it off before the flavors faded further.

Mmm. This blend seems just right for a snow storm. I like it with a healthy dash of rice milk. It adds a slight sweetness and creaminess that complements the caramel and milk chocolate notes beautifully. I’m not really getting any nuttiness but that’s fine by me.

Thank you to the lovely Phi for this blend! I am quite enjoying it. The roasty coconut flavor is refreshing and super yummy as an iced tea. It’s a nice counter balance after a heavy meal. Sipdown!

drank Pumpkin Milkshake by Butiki Teas
576 tasting notes

Happy birthday to me! I’m celebrating by only drinking teas I love. This was one of my favorite Butikis (I miss you, Stacy!). The flavor is starting to fade so I overleaf to compensate. It’s still creamy, sweet, pumpkiny goodness. I have one cup’s worth after this, but I feel like it’s time to make some sipdown progress on these teas while they’re still tasty.

Also, I haven’t posted in a while so Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a joyous holiday season and wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous year.

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia

Thanks to CheshireEyes for the thoughtful sample! This has been on my wishlist for a while and I’m super glad to have tried it. This has a lovely sweet pineapple flavor that comes just short of being cloying or tasting candy-like. It’s also nice as an iced tea. By which I mean brewed hot and then cooled, since I never had the patience to cold brew this. Sipdown!

Sipdown! First of all, I love the packaging on this. It’s just so gosh darn cute! I also really enjoy the blend. I am very fond of cinnamon, which is the dominant flavor here. It’s well supported by the apple and ginger flavors. Overall, this makes for a full-bodied and satisfying mug.

Sipdown! This blend makes my head hurt sometimes, so it took a while to finish off. Tasty, though. The cherry flavor is sweet without being cloying or syrupy. It also takes rice milk really well. Not a restock for me but I would recommend it to anyone who likes black tea and cherries.

Thin mints! This absolutely tastes like a tea version of the perennial Girl Scouts favorite. A splash of rice milk adds creaminess that really takes the blend over the top, but it’s not necessary. Thank you to Quarter to Tea for the review sample! I am way behind on tasting notes because I am moving, but I wanted to get this up before the Black Friday sale goes live so I can tell everyone how impressed I am with the blends I’ve tried so far from Quarter. I am limiting my tea orders this week to no more than four companies and this is one of them (TeaVivre is another, the rest are still TBD).

Hmm. I’m a sucker for cheesecake, so I was excited about this flavor. It disappoints on that front. Ignoring the name though, it’s a pretty tasty blend. The tart lemon flavor and roasty houjicha flavor balance each other out. There’s a hint of creamy vanilla that softens the tartness of the lemon and makes the flavor more evocative of dessert than fresh fruit. It’s also quite pleasant cold. Think more lemon meringue than lemon cheesecake. This was a nice enough blend, but I’m not heartbroken to say it’s a sipdown.
