96 Tasting Notes
This was the tea I chose from redeeming my Frequent Steepster points from DAVIDsTEA. I would never pay 20 bucks for 50g of tea. I’d have to be super rich for that. But since I could get it for free I figured why not!
I love watching the tea that’s rolled up into balls, or in this case, little cocoons unfold. I find it so pretty when it does that. (:
As for taste, the green tea isn’t overpowering, but I can still taste it as an aftertaste in my mouth after I swallow. The jasmine is strong, so of course, this tea makes for another win in my mind!
Lovely tea! ^^
I’ve had such a rough day emotionally. First my best friend who has been visiting me for the last week left again. Then my family was causing issues over my friend. And on top of that I’ve been feeling horribly physically. It’s just been a horrible day emotionally.
So it was a nice day to get my Whispering Pines order.
The strongest flavor I taste is baked bread. It definitely reminds me of that. There are hints of honey and caramel that make this tea so sweet. Reminds me of the Golden Snail tea, which upon trying last week became one of my favorite teas, hands down!
So this one is definitely a win!
It cheered me up some today, at least made me stop crying. Definitely an excellent tea worth trying!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Honey, Sweet
Haven’t had much time for tea since a friend has been in town all week. I have missed it! And I’ve missed being on this website. :P After tomorrow I should be posting more, I think. So in case any of you are wondering why I haven’t responded to any messages, that’s why. Not just trying to ignore you!
Anywho, bought this the other week from the wheezybee! Thought that it would be a lot stronger, according to everyone’s reviews…
But the black base is pretty obvious and the subtle hints of caramel and honey don’t hide it. It’s not horrible. But not as strong as I had hoped.
52Teas always seems to be hit or miss. Only found one that I really love so far. But I can’t say too much, I haven’t had tons of them to try yet.
Anywho, glad I tried this! One Day I’ll have to find a tea that legit tastes like candy corn. :P
Flavors: Caramel, Honey
I love mint chocolate chip. I usually love anything that tastes like that. But this tea…I don’t know. It definitely tastes like mint chocolate chip, but the mint really got me in this tea. Maybe I’m beginning not to like mint in teas? I’m not really sure now. 0_0
They are pretty hit or miss for me.
Not gonna rate this yet. I’ll have to try this one again. :S
So, steeped this for like 5 minutes on accident. xD Got way too excited messaging Sarsonator about Rifftrax. If you have no idea what Rifftrax is, look it up. It’s like one of the greatest things in the world! XD
This is pretty malty, but not too strong. I love the cocoa notes in this tea, it’s just a perfect combo of chocolate and malt. ^^ Another win from Whispering Pines!
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this tea because of the orange, but I decided to request it as a sample. It’s pretty good. The orange is definitely there, which is why I probably won’t buy any of this. But the flavors of marshmallow and dark chocolate put me on the fence about it. There’s so much marshmallow and dark chocolate tastes in this-it’s amazing! I love that part of it! Just the orange isn’t for me…so yeah, kinda on the fence. :S
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Marshmallow, Orange
This one surprised me. More than anything, it smelled malty as the tea was steeping. But when I drink this there’s no malty-ness at all. It’s really sweet, kinda like fruity almost. Not what I expected but pretty good! (:
Thanks so much for the sample, kimquat!
Flavors: Fruity, Malt, Sweet
