1053 Tasting Notes


This is probably the thing that most closely resembles a no frill chocolate tea, and its pretty good! You really do get a dark chocolate flavor. I’m almost done with this, and next time I’ve got a little experiment that I’m going to try with it.
I dont know if I’ll be getting more of this, but I do like it. Its no frills, which is sometimes just what you need.

Breaktime! And I can actually cook lunch for myself today, so I sauteed zuchinni with lemon pepper, scrambled some eggs, made some toast, and brewed up a pot of this.
This is a shut down tea. No matter what is happening, I take a sip of this and I immedietly shut down and go “ah”, and am transported to a happy place.
A good lunch, and a very welcome break during a busy day.

I have not been sleeping well at all. I will need vast quantanties of tea today.
First up is one of my sachets of this. In addition to being exsausted, this is my early day at work, and so I dont have time for a proper steep of loose leaf, and not the emotional energy to appriciate it.
When this is gone I will probably cry.


want to try this so badly! I hope you get tons and tons of sleep tonight.


Luckily you know where to get more. ;-)


Awww. I hope you get through the day ok. :(

Hmm. I was expecting more from this. More of a chocolate mint KAPAOW! What I’m getting is a pleasant but mild “eh”.
Not as full of chocolate or mint flavor that I crave, despite me clearly seeing chocolate chips in the mix! What gives, tea?
I have the tiniest tin of this, and so I wont be saddled with it for too long. I’ve never been overwhelmed with anything by Mighty Leaf tea. Maybe its just not my brand.

My morning cup of meh. This seems to never go down. Hmm. Must drink it up!
The more I drink, the more sure I am that this brand is simply not the brand for me.

drank Rose Petal by The Republic of Tea

Goodness. This was a solid wall of rosebuds this morning. I guess they all settled to the bottom of the tin, and now that I’m nearing the end, I have found a ton of them.
I also think I understeeped this this morning. Its a little light this morning.

drank Marie-Antoinette by Nina's Paris

All the tasting notes of this say that its a delicate tea, so I’ve been somewhat nevously avoiding it, because I do not have the gentlest steeping hand.
Hmm. The apple taste is a somewhat more sour apple taste, which I actually like. I’m a fan of crisp apples.
The rose is the factor thats a little puzzling to me. Its a nice rose, but at least in this steeping, I’m not seeing an immediet relation between the two flavors.
Further experimentation is needed!

Pensive Lemur tea! Hurrah!
Its actually really good, especially for a bagged tea. Not too warm, due to the pleasant note of vanilla cutting through the cinnamon. Very nice.
Only a little of this left. I’ll have to try it against Glitter and Gold and see how that all shapes up!

I found the tiniest tin of this at my local Marshalls, and justified myself into buying it.
Hmm. Pear. I never know quite what I feel about normal pears, but this isnt half bad. Its not quite as caramelly as I was hoping, but you get a nice earthy note, and the pear tastes properly like a pear, not like something from a bottle.


For a while, I was finding all sorts of unexpected tea bargains at TJ Maxx (a Marshall’s “cousin”) but their tea shelf disappeared last time I looked :(

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Its time for an after dinner cup of tea! Do I reach for the vanilla, caramel, cinnamon or sugary teas? Nope! Tonight nothing but Fruits d’Alsace with its light fruitiness will do.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
