1112 Tasting Notes

drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia

I do love the Lupicia newsletter, sending me samples of things that I would never order. I suppose thats the point of the samples.
This is fresh and almost juicy. Readers of my reviews might notice a theme- green tea is not my thing. I try, but its just not what grabs me out there in tea-land.
That said, this is pretty good!

I am not sure if I am actually liking this less and less, or if I’m just getting fatigue because I keep sipping and it never seems to get lower. Grr. C’mon tea, work with me.

Nom nom nom. Tasty. This is really well balanced. I think theres lemon or orange peel in this, wich is genius! What a good idea! I’ve found that in a lot of savory things, be it tea or actual food, the addition of a little citrus just makes it. It adds a “bright” note into it, which creates a whole new dimention of yum.
The actual pumpkin note is secondary to the pie spice taste, but overall I’m a fan.
Pro tip. BBQ turkey jerky does not pair well with pumpkin tea. Just FYI.


LOL, bad pairing with turkey jerky…..


I don’t even want to begin imagining such a combination.

New-ish tea goals.
If I have a tea in my cupboard that has no notes, or I havnt tried it, what exactly is stopping me, eh? Get a move on! You own this tea, drink it!
This….. is chamomile. Its not bad, standard issue. I expected the saffron to add something more to it, but it didnt quite brew up that well. In the box it smells a bit roasty, but I’m not noticing anything special about it in the cup.
Still, I like to have a chamomile in my cupboard at all times.

My last pot of this and I managed to pour some of it across my desk. At least I missed my computer.
Its rapidly turning into one of those mornings!

Long steep. Loooooooooong steep is the secret with this. Not nearly as chocolate like as I would wish (I am sensing a theme with chocolate teas), but its perfectly fine.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

Tonights steeping of this brings me out much more of the strawberry flavor.
This tea is a puzzle. I like all of the components- strawberry, chocolate, and rose, but this tea somehow is less than the sum of its parts. I feel greatness lurking in the background, but I may not be the steeper to bring it out.
DAVIDs Tea always becomes experimentation tea. Where I keep tying, to see what it will do next.

This afternoons tea. I got a lot of “greeniness” in todays cup. Ah, Steepster, home of the highly scientific descriptions of things. Well, from me, anyway.
Goodness, I have a lot more of this than I thought I did…..


I like that one a lot! Coconut vanilla white tea, yum….


It is good!

Whats good about this is the vanilla, I’ve realized. Cinnamon in tea can be overwhelming, but the addition of vanilla is a mellowing agent to that. I like this. I might get it again when it rolls around, but for now its a Sipdown!


Power of persuasion…I’m suddenly craving it—have a few bags left!

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.
