1057 Tasting Notes
Thank you, Dinosara! This is SO delicious!
I totally oversteeped it because I was so excited about my mug that I forgot to set the timer. Oh yeah.

This tea is totally staying on my “to buy” list. So good. Much berry. Wow.
(Note: app gave me a submission failure.)
Right. The app hasn’t been updated. Still turns on push notifications whenever opened (have to remember to turn them off!) and still rates every tea as 0. Haha. :)
Anyways. I bought the tentacle Nordic mug with ORANGE interior. Tried Pom tango (nice and fruity!) asked if they knew about the ‘minty’ in the cucumber tea – they didn’t. I’ll have to email the company I think.
I was going to get the whales Nordic mug too but BFF dropped her steeper so I got her one of those instead!
Anyway, this tea. It’s ok. A little creamy, definitely fruity. More like pear jelly beans, so somewhat overripe. But drinkable. I wouldn’t buy this one, but I don’t care for pear! I had kinda hoped that the cranberry would come out more. Oh well. :) I will enjoy the infusion of warm, fruity caffeine.
Next up: X-rays and a ct scan. Whee!
I thought I had tried this already. Hmm.
This sample is from Fjellrev, apparently. I think. Maybe. Or MissB. Sorry, ladies. I forgot to keep track!
It’s very chocolatey. Like brandy beans, almost, as there’s an alcohol whiff I’m getting off the tea.
But I like it. I really do. With almond milk, and a long steep, this is nice. Maybe not 50g nice, but nice enough that I want to check it out the next time I make it past a Tea Desire store!
Yum. Yum yum yum.
I feel a lot of my tasting notes are starting in similar ways. :)
I love this tea. The orange-earl grey just takes the edge off the “blergamot” and makes it divine, especially with some honey.
I would get more. I would get more of a similar tea, even. Not necessarily this exact one. :)
Thanks, Sil, for sharing!
Sip down (228).
I’ve actually had a lot of teas today, as well as a venti unsweetened hot chocolate with maple drizzle from sbux. I just don’t feel like logging them.
I’m really overwhelmed with work right now. Blah blah whine whine whine. It’s stuff I need to address with my boss and write up fresh protocols for, so I’m not doing all the grunt work. It’ll get done, but as one more thing added to my plate I’m not impressed.
This tea needs more orange. And ginger. But it’s nice and hot and will hopefully help my tummy out. Hot chocolate is delicious until you’ve had too much dairy and your tummy rebellls!
It’s been a while since I last had this tea. Still, the scent drew me in this evening.
Steeped, I’m getting more allspice, cinnamon and hibiscus. Still, I really like it.
If you like weird spicy blends, and don’t mind hibiscus, give this tea a try. I don’t know how to describe it, but I seriously want my house to smell like this. Crisp fall, winter spices, fruit punch.
(2.5 tsp, 14 oz, 185F, 3 min.)
So delicious. I don’t think I shook it up enough tho, the licorice is a little weak this morning while the chai part is a bit stronger. Still, it’s really good (and doesn’t have that super sweet licorice aftertaste, which is the part of licorice tea I can’t deal with). I might want to steep it a little hotter next time, too. I know this one takes boiling.
Drinking it with a little brown sugar and some almond milk, because a coworker phoned early this morning and I seriously levitated out of bed to rush to my computer to finish setting things up for a meeting.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Licorice
First time I’m having it iced, I think.
I prefer my root beer flat, with lots of ice cream. Honestly, that’s the only thing that’s missing… the root beer bits that freeze onto the edges of the vanilla ice cream scoops. Mmm…
(6 oz, 6 min, then ice and cold water added to bring to 14 oz)
