201 Tasting Notes

drank Laoshan Genmaicha by Verdant Tea
201 tasting notes

Been craving this one for a while…but it’s always night when I want it, so I always gotta hold off. But NOT TODAY!
This is the relaxing kind of tea I needed today. Probably one of the best genmaichas I’ve tried. So creamy and nutty. Ugh it’s just so good!
Bumping the rating!


I’ve been neglecting genmaichas in my fevered puerh pursuits. LOL But I should bust some out. It was one of my very first favorite styles.

This sure sounds like a good one!

Sarsy – it’s the same as Lady Gaga but without the vanilla and juniper. Very tasty!


Really Cambot? Maybe I will try Gaga again. She didn’t wow me, but it’s worth another try, I suppose!

I am the proud owner of 4 ounces of Gaga. :D

Clearly it’s not my night. xD After the DTT, it all seemed to go downhill. xD
This one is definitely not for me either. Though better than the last one, this one is super strong too.
The main taste for me is leather. What makes it better than the last one is that it also tastes like sweet potatoes. xD Kinda a weird combo. But the sweet potatoes make it a lot more drinkable for me.
This one wasn’t the worst, but not my favorite either.
Glad I tried it…but still don’t get the hype. This one isn’t for me! XD

Flavors: Leather, Sweet Potatoes


I steep this one for two minutes.

Wow. This tea.
I don’t really know what to think.
I taste leather. Earth. And something else that’s really strong…I’m not sure I like this one too much…
It’s just really strong, almost too strong for me. Ehh, think I will pass.

drank Granny's Cake by RiverTea

Was hoping that this one would be more cake-y. But it just tastes like a cinnamon tea. :S A mild cinnamon tea, which makes it more drinkable for me.
But…I had expected more. :/
Well, now I know at least.
Thanks for the sample, Christina! :D

Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices


Oh, that’s too bad. The description makes it seem to promising.


a lot of people seem to get more than just cinnamon. But that’s all I get! Maybe you will get more than that!

After a super busy day at work, I thought I’d come home, drink tons of straight black teas and do nothing. xD
Then I realized that I have a crap load of things to do. xD Sooo took a pain killer and while waiting for it to kick in I brewed up this tea!
Tis a good comfort tea. ^^

One of my favorite teas! The aroma as I bring that cup up to my mouth is enough to make me swoon! Mmmmmmm….

Got 50g of this one in the big Teavivre sale like a month ago.
Smelled like chocolate when I opened it, which is always good :P
The taste was kinda the same. Chocolate. And raisins too.
Chocolate and raisins….this tea would definitely go well with chocolate covered raisins. And guess what!
I have chocolate covered raisins in my cupboard…
I have a good idea hatching. :O

Flavors: Chocolate, Raisins


Those chocolate covered raisins were so waiting for this moment.


They totally were! :P

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
201 tasting notes

Okay-quick note!
This morning I woke up in tons of pain and couldn’t go back to sleep. Which kinda seems like an awful morning in a way since I didn’t wanna wake up so early on a day I could sleep in.
It was freezing in my room this morning! And when I looked outside-much to my surprise it was cloudy and chilly!
I seized my opportunity to drink chai while it was cold out.
So I made this! ^^
On my second cup and it has been perfect for a chilly morning.
But now the sun is coming out again. >> Stupid SoCal…
Gonna take some pain killers and make a new tea. But this chai start of the morning was really nice. (:
It’s really nice to try and make the best of a seemingly bad start of the morning. Tea always helps! Thanks again, boychik! :D


Feel better soon!


Thank you (: Pain killers helping now so I am! (:


sorry that stinks… feel better soon :)

Days like these (the weather part—not the pain part) sure are nice in California :) I did the same as you when it was suddenly cooling off so much last night! Glad you were able to keep the pain under control!

Got a sample of this from the very generous, Boychik!
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this one since I’m not a super huge chai fan unless it’s cloudy and rainy (and it barely ever is here, sadly >m sure that drinking the rest of this generous sample will help me decide about purchasing any this year though.
So happy I finally tried it! Definitely understand the hype! :D
Thank you so much for the sample, Boychik! :D :D

Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin, Spices


We got a tiny bit of rain here this morning! Did you get any?


Glad you liked it. It is not spectacular but it’s pretty good as a comfort tea


I didn’t, Flyawaybirdie! Jealous though! Too hot up here still!

And thank you so much again, boychik! :D

Another free sample from Teavivre! :O
And this one…
This one is what I’ve been wanting.
It’s strong. Floral-y. Almost perfume-y.
This is the kind of tea for me.
Ladies and gents, we have a winner here! :D :D :D

Flavors: Floral, Perfume

drank English Caramel by Lupicia
201 tasting notes

Got a sample of this one from Christina in our swap!
It’s pretty caramel-y…but has a funky aftertaste that I’m not a huge fan of. It’s a good tea, but nothing I’d go out of my way for.
Glad I got to try it before I decided to try and buy it. Thanks, Christina! :D

Lariel of Lórien

Try the Milk Caramel.
