drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
5374 tasting notes

Sipdown!

I means..i guess technically this tea is pretty much liquid cinnamon hearts but it’s not all that tasty, and you for sure can’t actually taste any of the pu-erh base. I’d much prefer sticking a bunch of cinnamon heart in my mouth and drinking hot water :)

DaisyChubb

You’re brave! I can’t touch this one haha

Sil

lol daisy – i’ll try pretty much anything once. With the exception of maybe gravy shots. yes…it’s as gross as it sounds. think canned gravy + vodka.

DaisyChubb

O: This is my horrified face haha!

Terri HarpLady

Gravy shots? Seriously? Is there somebody that actually would do that?

Terri HarpLady

Lol, I did a search & there’s a YouTube video…

Sil

omg IS there?!?!?! and yes… my stupid friends do dumb stuff like that all the time.

Terri HarpLady

yup! hahaha, I didnt actually watch it, but I think there are 2.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
5374 tasting notes

after the last fiasco, i needed a good cup of something to erase the taste from my mouth. This is very nearly a sipdown from my swap with Hesper June but not quite :) However, i just look at it as prep for another day hahaha. I still really enjoy this one quite a bit. It’s not my favourite of the H&S teas that i’ve tried but it is a nice fruity sort of tea without actually being overly fruity. if that makes sense lol

drank Superberry (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
5374 tasting notes

Thanks to courtney for letting me know that this was on steepster but as one word. Only reason i’m logging this….GROSS!

Seriously, this is really not up my alley. I think this is maybe 1 or 2 teas that i’ve ever taken a sip of and simply spat it back into the tea cup. If i could rate it as a negative number i would.

ick. I’m sure there are reason, and maybe this would be better cold but never again. no way, no how. gaaaaaah yuck!

Terri HarpLady

whatever you do, don’t send it to me! ;p

BoxerMama

I didn’t like it either. I drank it, but didn’t want to.

Kittenna

Yeah, IIRC I wasn’t a fan. Still have some left to truck through though. Boy am I glad they let you buy in teensy amounts now! (I think/hope I only got 10g of that one).

Stephanie

Wow, one of the lowest scores I’ve seen!

Indigobloom

Why does it get a score of 2 instead of 1 then :P

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA
5374 tasting notes

Sipdown!

I feel like this tea would be better as a cold brew. It’s got a nice flavour but there’s a tartness to it that reminds me of hibiscus more than pomegranate. It’s not particularly “mango-ey” either in my opinion, but that might be more due to the sample ratio than anything. Of course to me that sort of speaks to the tea as well, since i don’t like drinking teas where the taste is dependant on which pieces of whatever fall in to your cup. IMO you should be able to get a fairly consistent cup of tea no matter what your sppon picks up. Overall, not sure what the fuss is about. It tastes much more artifical tasting to me than anything. It’s not a bad cup, but if i never had it again, i certainly wouldn’t be upset.

(on a side note, i also tried a cup of super berry from david’s which isn’t on steepster, so i’m not going to add it because i pretty much sipped and spat it back into the cup. gross!)

Courtney

Superberry is here :) I actually really enjoyed it haha. It’s just one word on here though.

Sil

aah thanks for clarifying coutney! i’ll go do that hahaha

drank Sunshine Mate by The Tea Emporium
5374 tasting notes

I’m pretty sure i got this one from indigobloom so thank you! SIPDOWN! as well! today i’m working from home so here’s to some sipdowns and work on others teas so sipdowns will happen sooner with those. Gotta keep on track lol

I don’t hate this one, but i don’t love it. It does have a very pleasant citrusy flavour initially but then the after taste kicks in and i dislike that a lot. However, that being said, I’m not a big fan of mate anyway, so this is likely a pretty good tea haha

Indigobloom

I love the citrus scent of this one. I tend to just sit there with my cup, like potpourri :P

drank Winter Nog by Della Terra Teas
5374 tasting notes

So i have to say? This is not eggnog. Maybe my nose receptors are off, as are my other halfs…but while this was brewing, we totally agreed that this was like baked goods…sticky gooey baked goods, made with lots of butter…like fresh out of the oven gooey cinnamon rolls.

I was REALLLY hesitant to try this one though because i was for sure convinced that it would never taste as delicious as it smells. Also, sticking your nose in really close makes it not smell as good as well :)

So the tea? It’s actually pretty darn good. There’s a creaminess to it that is delicious, but i still don’t think this is eggnog, at least not so much. This reminds me more of cinnamon buns and i’m sticking with that. This is like gooey cinnamon buns without the overpowering cinnamon that happens with 52 teas cinnamon buns. This is like the after taste, when you’re licking your fingers off after eating a cinnabon…delicious!

Kittenna

Yeah, I don’t think I got cinnamon from this, but did enjoy it just as a creamy, tasty rooibos blend!

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
5374 tasting notes

So um….I thought I’d really like this one since I’m a fan of peach and such. Turns out I’d rather drink a really oolongy oolong than this one. While It does have a peach taste to it, there’s something in here which is turning my stomach. Is not even peach like peach drink…it’s just. Yeah….it smells lovely…fruity and like it would be super tasty….but no.

Kittenna

Yeaaahhhh I used to like this, then something happened.

drank Tie Kwan Yin (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
5374 tasting notes

Sipdown! I pretty much just decided to get through all my oolongs since then I can compare them and figure out what I like or don’t like about them, at least in terms of my sample oolongs. This one? It’s got that floral undertone that I don’t like….pretty much this is an average every day middle of the road oolong. I don’t outright hate it, I don’t love it.

drank Raspberry Cream by 52teas
5374 tasting notes

backlog from this morning

I had this as a tasty tasty cup to occupy my morning of craziness, though less crazy than the previous 4 days. :) I’m pretty good with the taste of this one – it’s not overly creamy but it does have a nice raspberry taste that fits in with the black base

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
