drank Mint Chocolat by Steep City Teas

Thank you for this sample Starfevre!

I’m still pretty undecided about this tea. I think part of it, is that in the case where chamomile is concerned, the frustration from having it in any of my baskets makes me more inclined to be critical of the tea. if that makes sense. Overall this is a pretty good mint chocolate tea. I’m just not sure how i feel yet about the addition of the chamomille. I think it’s proabably better than the current rating i’m giving it, but that’s a tentative rating until i can try it a couple more times.

SIPDOWn!

ok this is a really weird tea. It reminds me for of a black than anything and has this really weird taste to it that’s fruity and woodsy and just totally weird. not sure i can get behind this but thank you indigobloom for the sample!

jessiwrites

I really thought that said Human Red Oolong, and I was like, ‘hmmm, cannibal tea?’

Stephanie

hahaha Jessi :)

Kittenna

I feel like someone else misread ‘hunan’ the same way recently!!!

Sil

haha

jessiwrites

Well, I’m not wearing my glasses, and I see the word ‘human’ much more often than ‘hunan’, in my own defense. :P

Sil

yeah i just have this mental picture of a caveman like guy saying hoooomaaaan..

Indigobloom

LOL human tea, oh dear! :P

i REALLLLLLLYYYY thought i’d like this cold since it’s quite an enjoyable cup of hot tea. Turns out? not so much. I ended up having a few sips,trying to sweeten it and then dumping the rest of my little glass. I still quite enjoy this as a hot tea, so no worries there. Just haven’t managed to find another cold tea that my other half likes.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
jessiwrites

My top cold teas are Bamboozled, Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, and Lime Gelato. YUM.

Sil

bamboozled and i don’t get along… but i did try lime gelato and that one makes the other half happy so yay!

jessiwrites

Yay! The other one I forgot to mention is Coco Lemon Thai. It is lovely cold.

drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
5800 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
5800 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
5800 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

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.
