1070 Tasting Notes
This tea is lovely. Definitely pick up a sample if you like sweet honey teas.
I came home from work early due to sore from my fall, and was napping until my BFF popped in and woke up the cat… and me. :) I made us this tea to have. We did a couple steeps.
It’s really nice, and it resteeps well. I don’t think I’d ever justify a tin ($$$), but it’s definitely worth picking up a sample if the tea is in stock. I had some plain, and some with honey and almond milk. I’m sort of going for comforting today.
We also went through one of my bookshelves and I found all my old D&D characters! So awesome! I have a gnome swashbuckler, who spent so much time posturing and hitting on anything that moves, that his initiative was always negative. Pretty fun. And mixed in with all of it was printed email exchanges I had with my friend who was our DM. He passed away 7 months ago now, so it’s bittersweet to see his awesome. I might be joining a game my friend is part of, if I’m feeling up to it. :) Should be entertaining, at least!
I stand by my initial claim – this is good. Again, the honey part is really similar to DavidsTea Honey Bee.
But this is a sleepy time tea. Rooibos, chamomile, lavender. A little woody, and sweet from the flowers and honey flavour.
I really like it.
Yum yum yum. Yum.
With a honey stick from a local honey company because I’m too lazy to refill my honey jar from the “giant” bucket I have (3kg local honey WHEE!).
I chose this because I’m making Bo Kho, and the scent of the spices is making me SO HUNGRY. I had a salad to tide myself over, but it just wasn’t satisfying enough. Another 1:20 of cooking, and I’ll be able to sample the stew before I pack it away for lunches.
So this tea. SPICY and deliciously herbal as always. I really like it. Many, MANY thanks to MissB for sharing with me, getting me addicted, and then enabling me into a TeaG order. :) You’re super awesome, and I appreciate that.
(Yes, the ingredients are super weird. Parsley leaves? Chili flakes? But it’s SO GOOD. A nice kick in the pants.)
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.
