Very smooth strawberry taste. A little sweet. I think I will add a lot more dry leaf to brew next time, it came out kind of weak. I might brew it with twice the amount, like with Den’s teas perimeters for Japanese brewing. I drank it iced.

drank Provence Rooibos by Culinary Teas
258 tasting notes

I have never been to France which is truly a shame. But that doesn’t stop my love affair of French teas or French inspired teas.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this tea. Teas with roses seemed to be hit or miss with me. I LOVE this one. I love the black currants and lavender. It’s a wonderful blend, along with the light flavoring of rose. It’s delicious iced.

Smells great in dry state. And it’s one of the most colorful teas I have bought.

Boiling 8 min or more

drank Passion Fruit Tea by Culinary Teas
258 tasting notes

I took this tea for work. I love tropical black teas, iced while I work. It makes the work day go by better.

I like the fruity flavor. It’s in a good strength. I prefer the passion fruit flavor in the Hawaiian Islands tea. This has more background flavor along with passion fruit, with some floral. It smells amazing. Makes a great iced tea.

Makes for the perfect iced tea! I love the combo of floral and fruitiness. I could go through a gallon of this after mowing.

drank Key Lime Tea by Culinary Teas

Key Lime YUM! I LOVE key limes, even though they are an annoyance to get the juice out of. There’s a difference between normal limes and key limes. This tea isn’t lying when it says it has key lime! I love the lime strength, this is perfect. I really like the black tea in it, reminds me of a Nilgiri. Perfect for iced, which is how I made it. Puts me in the mood to get down to the Florida Keys and snorkel. When I make punches, I usually add tea, this tea would be a great addition to it.

If you are a Key lime addict like me, this tea rules.

I am in such a mood for fresh warm peach crisp with some ice cream. But I shall settle with this!

I drank it iced. The peach flavor is in nice quantity. Aftertaste, I taste a little mint, very minimal though. It is on its own sweet. Beautifully colored dry leaf. It does tastes like it smells. I don’t think I am a fan of peach and rooibos together. I think I would rather drink it with black tea. I will go through the 1 oz sample with no problem.

I went on a spending spree at Culinary Teas. I started with this one, since it sounded the best. It is good, mildly flavored. I would of loved more berry flavor. It has chucks of blackberries, red currant, bilberries(wild blueberries), and cranberries. I was hoping for more yummy bakery taste that are with other pastry item named teas. I wouldn’t get this one again, but wouldn’t turn it down if offered.

The story behind the muffin is tasty! I do want to go to the location this muffin is made and try it!

There is something about the words “spending spree” that make me very happy, especially when it’s a tea spending spree!

drank Houjicha - Dark Roast by Obubu Tea
258 tasting notes

I was not expecting to like it. I read in the reviews the word “smoky” and mentally wrote this tea off. Wow, this tea makes me rethink houjichas! Deep, robust, very chocolately. So dark and yum. It’s a sweet kind of smoky likeness. I’m going to try the latte recipe on Obubu’s website. That sounds pretty delightful with heat of the summer day.

drank Coconut Pouchong by Adagio Teas
258 tasting notes

I bought this as I was missing Golden Moon’s version of this. This is still decent, but it’s nothing compared to GM’s. I drank it iced. It was weak, I will up the leaf next time. The leaves smelled nom nom. I wouldn’t buy it again, but worthy of a try. It was missing the creamy coconut thickness I wanted.

drank Kirameki no Sencha by Obubu Tea
258 tasting notes

I got the sampler from Obubu. I went for this tea first, since it was perfect for making into iced tea. The leaves are very interesting. They are very rough looking. I brewed the recommended away. It’s very thick tasting, so I added more ice. It has a nice, strong flavor. I chugged the sample in less than 2 minutes. Rebrews 2 more times.

It seemed lightly grassy. I would drink this again, though I am more interested in what else they have to offer.

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
