drank Green Jasmine by Tea's Tea

Trying to get back in the swing of drinking and reviewing teas. I HAVE been drinking tea, just haven’t been telling you guys about it!

I won some Tea’s Tea a few years ago, and haven’t really seen them since. But I found this a few weeks ago in my grocery store and wanted to give it another go. Just like last time, I’m always surprised that this isn’t extremely sweet, even though I’m pretty sure it says that on the bottle.
There isn’t a ton of flavor, but there is enough for it to not be water. The jasmine gets a bit bitter at the end of the sip, but overall this is a nice iced tea

Holiday TTB #8: I was hopeful for this one, since it smells so good. But i have this weird thing where nutmeg just never tastes good in teas to me. I should have known it would bother me in this too. I didn’t like this one, but I don’t think it’s a fair judgement on the tea itself

drank Vanilla Velvet by Teajo Teas

Holiday TTB #7: This one smells very vanilla, both dry and steeped. But the main flavor is the roobios, with the vanilla adding a creaminess. I think I associate the rooibos flavor with cookies for some reason, and the vanilla in this only added, making me feel like a cookie tea instead of a vanilla one

Holiday TTB #6: This was one of my favorite teas when I first got into loose leaf. I couldn’t help but try it again, after not having tasted it for a few years, and after all these new teas I’ve tried. It definitely was not as good as I remembered, but I can see why I liked it. It was a good stepping stone into more and different tea

Holiday TTB #5: I think I didn’t steep this long enough or something, because there was just not a lot of anything going on here

Holiday TTB #4: It’s not in the name, but this one contains figs. Recently I bought some coconut fig snack things, and this tea tastes like the liquid version of that. It’s tasty, but the name doesn’t really fit

Holiday TTB #3: I really liked this one! I don’t know if I would say cheesecake specifically, but I definitely got a toasty nut flavor, and a sweetness that I could say is caramel. I’m enjoying mate more, and that’s always exciting!

drank For the Brave by Liquid Proust

Holidays TTB #1: This may be a weird one to start with, but it just stood out so much. I really love lapsang souchong, and the thought of these other flavors mixed with it was really interesting.

The smokiness seemed to be covered up by the other flavors. The hibiscus was also mellowed out and not really tart at all. Maybe the marshmallow root just calmed everything else down? I wasn’t super into the flavor of this, but I’m happy I tried it.

drank Chocolate Mint by Teaoli

I’ve had this one plenty before and enjoyed it, but today it basically just tasted like mint leaves and nothing else. I don’t know what I did to make that happen, but I know that the chocolate is normally there! Oh well, weird things happen sometimes I guess

Bio

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, and California, and I’m currently in Oklahoma while the boyfriend gets his grad schooling on.

I’ve been into tea for about five years now and my favorite thing is that there is still so much to learn! I personally prefer black and oolong teas, though I love trying new teas whatever they may be.

I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
