550 Tasting Notes


Had a cup of this with my fiancee yesterday. I had mine with milk because I am attached to having an Earl with milk at the moment. He had his plain. Both were delicious.

Work was exhausting today and I feel too tired to make one of my fancier teas. Just this with sugar for tonight. Good news is that I’m off two hours earlier tomorrow, so it won’t be as exhausting.

Last of my bagged tea, but it is so comforting! Hot with milk and now I have no more English Breakfast tea.

My fiance was running out of Earl Grey and he picked up a tin of this to share with me since he thought I would like a loose leaf Earl and he knows that I like Twinings tea.

The tea was not as astringent in the loose leaf version as it is in the bagged version. It brewed up a lighter amber color as well. It was still a delicious Earl with the bergamot shining through, but not replacing the flavor of the black tea.

I had most of my cup with milk for a smooth drink to have with my bacon and eggs this morning. It was yummy and I think I might be spoiled for my Earl Greys now. I want them all to be loose leaf. He gave me two big tablespoons of dry tea so it will last me a couple of days before I pester him for more.

drank Ruby Sipper by SerendipiTea

My roommate Shwee found a new bakery in her town called Heavenly Buns which apparently has a sign of an angel mooning the pedestrians. She found this tea and thought that I would enjoy it so she sent me a sachet of this.

I wasn’t sure what it was because I didn’t look it up before hand so I brewed it for four minutes. It smelled divine and it brewed up to be this pretty pale pink! Plain, it didn’t taste like much so I added a little bit of sugar to my cup. Then it started to taste a little bit like grapefruit but not quite. Nice and light and mild.

Then I looked it up after finding the store on the label and discovered that it was a blood orange blend. Wow. I thought it would have been stronger than this but this was a very nice light tea. I have an awesome friend who thinks of me when she sees tea.


The sign for that place sounds hilarious!


I laughed when I read it in the letter. Apparently it has caused quite a stir in her sleepy little town.

drank Bubble Tea by Custom

I splurged today and got a bubble tea from the mall when my fiance and I went. They had taro flavor and I had to try it. I am so glad I did! It was so delicious and I might have to get it again in a month or so. I’m not quite sure how to describe it and the only thing that I can come up with is bubble gum but not as sweet and not as gummy. It was really good though and I now know why that flavor is popular. Yum!


I’ve had actual taro before, and wasn’t a fan, but your review really makes me want to try taro flavored things!


It was really delicious. They used a taro bubble tea powder so you might be able to find it online somewhere.


If you can find taro frozen yogurt somewhere, try that! That’s my favorite way to have taro flavored things.


taro always reminded me of oreo cookies! sooooo good

drank Earl Grey Decaf by Bigelow

I have now drank two travel sized mugs of this with milk in less than three hours. So tasty and just what I needed! This really means I need to get some Earl Grey of my own so I don’t feel guilty about borrowing mom’s stash (with her permission of course)

I’m on some antibiotics now and I am feeling better. I’m glad. This tea (sweetened) also helps me feel better because it is so tasty. I like it better sweetened because the light smokiness drowns out the sweet greens when it is plain. When adding sugar, the smokiness is brought down a little bit and I can taste the lovely green tea. I just wish I had some mint to put with this.

So, I was super exhausted because my body was trying to get sick, which it succeeded in doing today. Had to call off of work (feel really bad about that), but I have a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. I don’t have my next work day until Saturday, so I will hopefully be better by then. Maybe I’ll be able to make one of my other teas today.

Hot with milk. Very tired from work. Can’t wait to find a real career. Just one more day of work then I can simultaneously collapse and research. Life is hard.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
