First off, this isn’t a real milk oolong. Milk oolong isn’t supposed to have milk or any other flavorings added to it. It’s a fake.

Secondly, it’s not even that good. A friend gave me a cup and I was polite enough to drink it, but the fake milky flavor was honestly pretty gross. It’s a sub-par tea at best, and certainly not worth the price.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

They should have just called this Chocolate Marshmallow or something similar, because that’s all it really tastes like. It strikes me more as what Count Chocula would be like as a tea than anything. At least I’ve ironed out that plastic nastiness.

I’ve had better chocolate teas. I’ll finish off the 2 oz. bag I have, and that’s it. Not worth the price.

This was a bit of an impulse buy, since the idea of a S’mores-flavored tea was something that piqued my curiosity. The dry mix smells more like a chocolate breakfast cereal to me than a s’more. Then again, a lot of chocolate-based teas do.

Flavor-wise, it’s more like a weak hot chocolate than anything. It’s alright, but not something that’d make me immediately think of s’mores. There is, however, a faint taste there that I don’t like. Plasticy? Burnt? I don’t know, but it distracts a bit from the marshmallow and chocolate. Milk made it taste like the milk from a bowl of chocolate cereal, only warm.

I don’t think I’ll try resteeping. I doubt that after all the melty bits have dissolved it’ll really turn out well. Probably won’t restock it as it didn’t really impress me.

drank Spiced Apple Chai by Adagio Teas

What happened? This used to be really good! I remember buying it a couple years ago and it was delicious, with lots of apple flavor. It was like apple pie in a cup! Now though, it’s a bland excuse for chai that smells more like apples than it tastes. Very disappointing.

drank Apple Refresh by Ahmad Tea

I’ve been looking for an apple-flavored black tea ever since Adagio discontinued theirs. That’s harder than it sounds, since there are so many apple cinnamon teas and very few that are just apple.

This makes for a decent substitute. While it’s bland when hot, after it’s cooled a little it’s good and strong and appley. Planning on trying it iced next.

With the addition of milk along with sugar it tastes less like a cupcake and more like strawberry milk. Tasty either way, but I prefer it without milk.

Also the second steep brews up pretty much the same as the first.

drank Floral Nectar by Simpson & Vail
30 tasting notes

I was surprised at how light this tea actually tasted. It’s got a very strong, sweet smell to it, not to mention a lot of lavender in the dry mix, so I was expecting something a little more intense than the light flavor I got at first. There’s also a subtle fruitiness, due to the apricot flavoring.

It’s certainly nice for the summer, kind of a “cheery” tea. The flavor becomes slightly stronger as it cools, but not much. Just enough.

I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I do drink it on occasion. I got curious as to what a coffee-flavored tea might be like, so I ordered some. There’s a lot of big pieces of almond in the blend. Not so many coffee beans, but that could just be my bag.

It certainly smells like coffee. It tastes like it too, in that’s what I’m primarily getting. Not so much the almond, but I suppose it’s because I was expecting a sweeter almond flavor like most almond-flavored things have. It’s something I’d drink in the morning really, or when I want coffee flavor without the jitters that strong coffee gives me.

drank Lilac Bouquet by Simpson & Vail

Nope, just not my cup of tea. Nothing I can do makes it taste like anything but perfumed powder or soap. It’s more like something I’d want to wear, not drink. Seems as far as florals go, lilac isn’t for me.

Bio

I’m a gamer girl who drinks a lot of tea. My tastes tend heavily towards black tea, though I won’t turn down a nice green or white either.

I stay away from most herbals because far too many of them have hibiscus. I find hibiscus disgusting. Nor am I a fan of rooibos; the taste has to be pretty heavily masked for me to drink it.

I’ll almost always put sugar in my tea, unless it’s something that really doesn’t work well with it (I will never ever add sugar to lapsang souchong again). Sorry. It’s my taste preference, and if it isn’t yours I don’t really care.
