201 Tasting Notes

96

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

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
201 tasting notes

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’m not a big fan of candy corn. :P But I can see it being emulated through the combination of a light caramel maybe with some cream? And a lot of sugar, lol. :P

Ost

Hah yeah. It tasted faintly of it, but not strong enough for me!

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

Oh how I wish that 52Teas wouldn’t just have limited flavors. This has been a wonderful tea. Absolutely love it. Wish I could buy more! So happy I gave 52Teas another shot. Thanks so much for the sample, Mandy! :D

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

Sarsonator

Rifftrax FTW!

Ost

Woo! :D

darby

Sharknado!!! I want to see this one.

Ost

You should, darby! It’s great! :P

darby

We’ll be on vacation Tuesday. :(

Ost

Aww bummer! Could probably find it online…well maybe.

drank Kiwi by Lupicia
201 tasting notes

Oh my word! This one is delicious! :O
I made it hot, of course. xD And had thought it might be more of a sour kiwi flavor. But boy was I wrong! It’s strong, but sweet. So so sweet.
One of the best fruity teas I’ve ever had!
Thanks for the sample, mj! (:

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

Sarsonator

Oh this is one of my faves!!!! Do you not like orange in general, or just in teas? I wonder if Stacy makes something similar, but with just the chocolate/marshmallow and no orange….

Ost

I hate orange in general. xD And now I have to take something for my pain that’s orange flavored and it’s horrible tasting. xD So now I’m even more scarred with that flavor!

Sarsonator

I’m not sure how you make it in the world, while hating orange. I feel for you, really. Seems to me like orange is in so many things that it would be hard to avoid!

Ost

Haha it’s actually easier than you might think! Like I can deal with orange if I have to. And I don’t mind when it’s in something but barely noticeable, but usually orange flavors are strong. xD

Sarsonator

Well that’s good! I agree, orange is usually front and center. I like orange, so it’s not a problem for me. It’s mint that makes me cringe!!!

Ost

Really? Is it all mints? Or just certain kinds?

Sarsonator

Most mints. I’m ok with spearmint if it’s very lightly flavored. I really detest strong mint flavors. Blargh!

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
201 tasting notes

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

Sarsonator

MMMMM sweet fruity tea!?!??! Sounds right up my alley!

Ost

You might like it! Though like not many other notes seemed to think it was fruity. xD But to me that’s how it was haha

drank Malty Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas
201 tasting notes

I’ve only had one other Irish Breakfast, which was from Tealux. That one was a lot creamier. And this one of course is pretty much just malty.
Both are good though. I do love those malty teas. ^^

drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA
201 tasting notes

Ehhh this one wasn’t for me. Was hoping it would be more chocolate-y. But it tasted really fruity. Raspberry maybe? Just not my kind of flavor. :P
Thanks for the sample though, mj!

Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry

carol who

I loved it the first time I had it but the second time it didn’t impress. I wondered if it had all settled in the bag/tin and i wasn’t getting the yummy chocolate I had before.
