182 Tasting Notes


Heh, when I read the description on Steepster of this tea I lost my inspiration to write a note. I don’t taste any citrus or orange blossom. Not sure I really taste any of the other things in the description, other than nutty. xD
I blame it on allergies…just screwing up what I taste and smell. When I tasted this tea all I could think about was salted peanuts. It’s so roasty and nutty. Just how most of the oolongs I love taste.
But Now I’m really hungry. And want peanuts. >>

Flavors: Nuts, Peanut, Roasted, Salt

It’s kinda weird to try an oolong that isn’t roasty or floral tasting. It definitely tasted like hazelnut, with a hint of vanilla. So different than what I’m used to…But I really like it! :D
It’s a light, smooth flavor. So makes it even more different than I’m used to. But still good. (:
Thanks for the sample, Mandy! ^^

drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea

Didn’t taste much toffee to be honest, unless the taste of toffee is really off in my head. xD Which could be the case since I haven’t had it in forever. :p
It does taste a bit like toffee, but I’m getting a more buttery taste.
Kinda weird. Not sure what to think!
Thanks for the sample, Mandy! (:

Flavors: Butter, Toffee

Oh my word!! FINALLY trying this tea! Super stoked.
I’ll write a better note later when I’m not in tons of pain. Definitely tasting the chocolate and malt. Not noticing tons of vanilla actually, but I’m pretty sure that’s just because my pain is really distracting me today. I really love this tea though. I’m so so happy I finally got to try it! Whispering Pines really is awesome! :D I can’t wait to try more teas from them. Will definitely have to put in a bigger order later in the year.
I totally understand the hype now!! ^^

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Malt

I didn’t get a lot of vanilla from it, either. Adding a little sugar helped, but I’d rather not add anything to a tea that’s so tasty on its own. :)

Whispering Pines Tea Company

:) The vanilla isn’t really supposed to be at the forefront of this tea. It’s supposed to add a creamy aspect and greatly enhance the cocoa notes :)

So glad you like it, though! :D


Feel better soon! I also ordered a sample of this and am super excited to try it!


Ah, I see. Well either way, I still really love this tea!! I gotta get more soon! :D
And thanks, mj! (: You will totally love this tea! :D


Oh, pain is no good, hope you feel better soon.
Yay for trying Golden Orchid! I a actually love the fact that it’s not overkill vanilla so you can taste the beautiful base tea…

Mmmm (: I have to get more of this soon….1oz is not enough!

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Butter, Pineapple


Its so delish, one of my favs from them. It made me want to try every pineapple tea ever made.


Definitely one of the best DTT I have tried so far!!

drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas

Got this as a sample from my last DTT order. This is pretty woodsy, not as strong as Tea Guy’s Carrot Cake. Definitely taste the spice of the cake part, just not really the icing which, of course, is the best part of a carrot cake. So a bit disappointing.
Not a terrible tea, but Tea Guys definitely made a much better blend of tea on this one.


Totally agree…the only reason to eat carrot cake is the cream cheese icing. I was missing the icing component in DT’s red velvet cake too


I felt that way about DT’s red velvet too. :/ Such a bummer. Do people not realize that’s the best part?

drank The Black Lotus by Butiki Teas

This is my second Butiki tea!!! :D I’m so excited. Oh my goodness, you have no idea how excited I am! Got a sample of this from, mj! Thanks so much! Super stoked!
Wasn’t totally sure if I’d like this, to be honest.
But again with tea surprising me. xD
I wasn’t too big on the honey taste in teas. But this one is super malty, with a hint of honey in it that makes it sweet. I love this combo.
This tea is amazing! I’ll have to buy some myself now! Thanks for the sample, mj!!

Flavors: Honey, Malt, Sugar


I’m glad you like it :-)


Thanks so much! :D So happy to try more of Butiki!

I seem to really like Assam tea. I got this sample along with the genmaicha sample a few weeks ago. This Assam actually doesn’t feel as malty as others I’ve had. There’s something else to it, but I can’t place it….
Still a good tea, but Tealux already has this one covered. :P

Got this tea from the awesome, darby! (:
This was one of the few Republic of Tea teas that I really wanted to try. It smells exactly pretty strong like DTT’s Lemon Chiffon does.
But the flavor is much lighter. Not bad at all.
I think Lemon teas are growing on me more and more ^^

drank Blueberry Crumble by Della Terra Teas

First off, this is a pretty tea to look at. (:
Secondly, this totally smells like a blueberry muffin. Which I totally love the smell of.
And third, this totally tastes like a blueberry pastry. DTT knows how to do it right!
Thanks for the sample, JennyFur! (:

Flavors: Blueberry, Pastries


I’m glad you liked it. I really enjoy a well done blueberry tea, I was hoping you did too. :)


Thanks again! :D
