This tasted weird the first time I had it like a year ago. Well, almost a year ago.
And now it still tastes weird…
Is this what Buttered Rum tastes like?
i tried a lifesaver that was Buttered Rum and really liked it because it tasted like Butterscotch…but this doesn’t taste like that…
:S
Yeah…can’t say I’m a fan! D:

OMGsrsly

Buttered rum tastes more like the lifesavers, IMO. But also really alcoholic!

Is this the one with coconut in it? I can’t remember. I think my bag of this went super weird tasting at some point and I had to throw it out.

drank Happy Kombucha by DAVIDsTEA

So I totally thought that the base of this tea would be overpowering-it looked like black tea at first but when I looked it up on here it turned out to be oolong! Clearly I’m going blind xD
Well, either way, this one surprised me!
Couldn’t really taste the base tea which really worked out for this one!
The main flavors were mango and peach. There was also like a really sour taste in it-for a second there, I thought it might be citrus, but then I realized it was probably the pineapple.
It’s not really "sweet’, but it’s just really really fruity. I like it, it’s a decent tea. Just not my absolute favorite. Wouldn’t mind drinking it again. Just too many fruits all at once for me. xD

Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Peach, Pineapple, Sour

Tea for Me Please - Nicole Martin

I like when they make this one as Tea Pop. The carbonation breaks up the sweetness :)

AllanK

I bought this tea but returned it when I found out it had an ingredient called deglutenized wheat in it.

Ost

What’s so bad about that, AllanK? Like…are you allergic?

AllanK

Yes, I am allergic to gluten.

Ost

Oh, bummer :/

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA

Yeah, this one definitely didn’t live up to expectations…
Was kinda malty…kinda woody…not tons of flavor. I’m sure if you steep it longer than the advised steeping time you will get more flavor but….I don’t feel like it’s worth trying again. Just doesn’t seem like any of the great things I would be…
DavidsTea really isn’t all that great with unflavored teas…they need to stick with unflavored teas!
Thank you to Allan K for the sample though! Probably would have wasted my money on it at some point otherwise D:

Flavors: Malt, Wood

I got like a tsp of this tea from Terri, which I’m not sure is the amount you’re supposed to use, but I’d rather have a weak tea than have to pay full price to try it! So works for me!
I tasted a lot of cherry and wood. There were notes of vanilla too. Was not bad. Pretty good actually-I’d totally drink it again.
But it’s not something that I would buy. Which is fine. Happy to sample!

Flavors: Cherry, Vanilla, Wood

This one just tastes like wood and tobacco for me. xD I don’t get the tobacco taste in most teas…it took me a few sips to really pick it out. Haha!
But yup. There it was.
Also, this one tastes a bit smokey, which is odd. Don’t think many others have tasted that!
Oh well. Thanks for the sample, Terri!

Flavors: Smoke, Tobacco, Wood

Yeah…thought the 2013 version of this tea would be better…but no. Tastes like horse manure. D: Not a fan! Blehh
Thanks for the sample though, Terri. Sorry it’s wasted on me! :(

Had this one earlier today…Made for a decent cup. For some reason, the almond/coconut combo, I just can’t drink tons of this tea in one sitting. It’s just too strong.
It’s a nice tea that I do enjoy, but I don’t know, I just couldn’t get myself to make another cup.

Flavors: Almond, Coconut, Sweet

Had this one yesterday… Decided to treat myself to some amazing tea, on a miserable day. I am supposed to save it only for special occasions, but…I mean, I figured I’ve had to deal with an insane amount of pain all day long, with only like 40% relief from pain killers, right? That deserves an award, right?
Well…whether I’m right or not, I drank it. And it was delicious, and incredible. Even on the miserable day which was yesterday.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Orchid, Perfume, Smooth

This is a perfect reward! The ultimate pick-me-up!

Ost

Aha glad someone agrees! And now to reward myself for the awful day I’ve had today, I’m trying a bunch of tea samples that I haven’t been able to try! :D

Haveteawilltravel

Thats a great way to be cheered up! Tea Day Sunday

dragondrool

That does indeed deserve a reward. Though I have to note that just being you is special-occasion worthy in and of itself. You don’t need any special “event”. You’re worth the good stuff.

Ost

Aww that made me smile, dragondrool, and I needed to smile today! Thank you for being so sweet! hugs (:

I waited like two days too long to get this tea on their website because now they are sold out. sighs Sad times…Oh well…It’s such a good tea, and I’ve enjoyed the sample Terri gave me so much! Wish I could have gotten this tea! :(

Found this in my sample basket-an old one from Mandy! Can’t believe I missed it! Since I am planning on putting in a YS order soon, I figured I need to try all the YS teas I have, So I can make a full order! :D
But this one is definitely not for me.
It’s super woody…with like…a bready note in the aftertaste…very odd. xD
Thanks for the sample anyway, Mandy!

Bio

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
