683 Tasting Notes
I love that Verdant is having free shipping right now-like it’s just so awesome! Wanted to try a sample of this one and it was only two bucks, so heyy that is helping save tea money xD
I love how soft and furry this tea is-love the look of white teas. For some reason I was expecting a bit more from this tea…so I was a bit disappointed to drink it and find that it was just like all the other white teas.
Very hay-y with a touch of sweetness.
Actually not bad. Won’t mind finishing the sample, but not my favorite either.
Flavors: Hay, Sweet
Sad sipdown! This was such a lovely, floral-y tea. I would totally buy this again. Glad to have one less tea in my collection…but come a really awesome sale again, I’d totally pick it up xD Have thoroughly enjoyed this one and am a bit sad that I will not be having it anymore. But hey, gotta make room for more tea for later!
Flavors: Floral, Sweet
This was the first tea I had this morning….I have tried it before. Early last year or so, I believe. Didn’t think it was that great then, and was hoping that since my taste buds have changed I’d like this one better.
I was wrong :(
The lemon flavor was a lot stronger than the creamy flavor, which I didn’t like so much. It didn’t really taste like a pastry or anything. Was more of just a plain lemon tea that isn’t even strong. That’s pretty light. I steeped it for like 6-7 minutes and it wasn’t that strong :( So yeah…disappointed with this one.
Della Terra Teas has been acting rather sketchy and I’m kinda nervous that they won’t re-open again, so trying to find a tea that matches up to their incredible Lemon Chiffon which is everything you’d ever want in a lemony, creamy, pastry-like tea. Ughh just thinking about it makes me smile. Such a good tea. And I’ve yet to find a tea that is good enough.
This tea is totally replacing the Movie Night from DavidsTea that has been a staple in my collection. I wish that DavidsTea had never changed that tea, or that my taste buds never changed!But this tea is basically everything Movie Night used to be-sooo this is a win! A staple in my collection…till they change it too xD
Also, if anyone sees this, please just know that my health has been really bad lately and it’s not calming down and this weekend is going to be even worse and I’ve had like tons of family drama over the last two months on top of it all—so I’ve kinda been MIA from Steepster….So to all the people who are waiting for me to reply to your message please please don’t be upset! Things are just really bad right now, and I I’m doing the best I can! I’m planning on being on here more consistently though, like…I’m very determined. I have been rather active on Instagram and FB, but just not really here. Probably because I have been drinking most of the same teas and I’ve not been feeling well enough to drink as much as I used to :(
So yeah, I’m sorry for being a lousy person to talk to lately. :( It has nothing to do with any of you-so far most of the people I’ve met, and at least the ones that are waiting for me to reply to their last message have been great people so far! So please know it’s not to do with you. Things just aren’t the best right now. And I am really behind on everything. And I really am trying to catch up but also trying to pace myself…whiich is rather hard when your bad health makes everything go super slow. xD I’m not usually such a slacker haha! But oy. I just needed to apologize to all of you. Please forgive me if I’ve offended anyone! Those haven’t been my intentions at all! On instagram those of you who follow me are so sweet, the comments you leave on some of my posts. Oh my goodness, some of them really brighten up my day. This is a wonderful community for the most part. And I’m sad I’m not really being in it that much lately. Only really through Instagram. So yeah…Hope I haven’t offended anyone!
I am doing the best I can right now! I hope the rest of you guys are doing okay! And for all those who follow me on Instagram and write sweet comments on there-thank you for helping to brighten my day. (: You guys are awesome! (:
I’m nearly out of my 1oz bag of this tea that I got on their BF sale! D:
Brewed this one up to take to work with me today. My new tea tumbler didn’t keep it hot enough though so kinda had to hurry and drink it fast when I got to work and realized that the tumbler was a failure. xD
But even lukewarm the floral flavor is maintained and still pretty good. Wouldn’t wanna drink it like that all the time or anything but was still nice. Just wish It would have lasted longer :(
Flavors: Floral, Smooth
Having this one this afternoon as my Victory tea! Got up at 5 and took my drugs, pushed myself to go to work and to stay till 2:30 which is the usual time when I go home. Was a lot more pain today than yesterday but it was still a good day and I got to spend time with my awesome co-workers! So that made me really happy! :D
Haven’t had this tea in a while. But man do I still love it!!
Had this tea on Easter. It was a really depressing weekend, and it was really really hard to sit around the table with my cousins and younger bro bragging about how much they work and how well they are doing in school and talk about all their grand plans in life.
It wouldn’t be as hard if I still was able to consistently be able to work because then at least I’d have one thing going for me. But I barely have that anymore…So I was feeling super depressed. Also things happened on Saturday that just added to it..
Sucks to listen to people talk about all the great things they get to do in life and remember that you have no life pretty much and you don’t even have the potential to do those kinds of things anymore…
In the middle of the day I finally decided that I should try to drink tea because they always say tea makes everything better.
So I brewed up this one.
The first time I had it it tasted like a lot more butterscotch and honey. But this time I mainly just tasted the hazelnut and mocha in it. Which was fine, but not exactly what I had hoped for. Still good though!
And it cheered me up some! (: Drinking this tea was seriously the best part of my entire Easter. Tea really does make everything better! :D
Flavors: Coffee, Hazelnut, Mocha
I love how spot on the vanilla bean flavor in this tea is. You can definitely taste the chamomile but the vanilla bean is still the main flavor.
It’s like the perfect vanilla tea for the evenings or when I’m trying to relax! Still haven’t decided if it’s going to be a staple in my collection yet, but I had gotten like a 3oz bag of it last time I ordered, soo I have lots of time to decide what I think! :P
Ohhh I’m so behind on tasting notes, it’s so bad! XD
Had this earlier this week…Oh my goodness, seriously trumps DavidsTea’s version of Oh Canada. Like this is one of the ultimate maple/syrup teas!
Since the last batch of Oh Canada from DavidsTea tasted really off and not the same at all, I think I am going to kick that one out of my collection to have this one instead. This one is a must try for anyone interested in maple/ syrup-y teas! :D
