Thanks to Lariel for this sample.

This is pretty good, although I’m not at all getting the berry flavours, neither blueberry nor raspberry, that I had expected. This mostly tastes like an Earl Grey to me, with some extra citrus thrown in there, likely from the orange peels. It’s very fresh tasting. I don’t even like Earl Greys that much normally.

I did oversteep this a bit so that might be where the berries went.

Fairly certain I like the boysenberry better than the generic berry but probably less than the raspberry. Will have to continue experiment tonight.

drank Berry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Thus begins the berry matcha experiment. Do I like the generic berry better than the boysenberry? I don’t know. I wish I’d remembered to bring my raspberry in from home, but black cherry will have to do as a substitute.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

Thanks to Lariel for this sample. Just enough for one cup of tea.

And apparently I totally missed my 300th tasting note because this one is #307. Oh well.

I didn’t particularly enjoy the smell of this tea so I didn’t have very high hopes for it, despite all the good reviews. However, upon tasting it (while it was cooled off, I didn’t drink any while it was warm), it’s quite tasty and very burnt-caramel. I’m not sure I pick up on any salt though. I’ve never really had a ‘salty’ tea so I’m not sure what to look for besides the obvious in this.

It’s really salted coconut.

Really? Because I definitely tasted caramel and not really coconut at all.

Very berry. I don’t know if this is better to me than the generic berry one or not. I’ll have to try them both tomorrow and compare.

Oh I ADORE boysenberry!! Mix it with some vanilla creamer (liquid style) and some sparkling water for the BEST Italian soda ever!!

A little more sugar than usual today, about 2/3 tsp. Quite tasty.

Tasty. And I see that there are new offerings at RLT. Might have to break my no-tea-buying oath.

You need more matcha??? Actually I wouldn’t be surprised considering the rate you drink it at.

Thanks yssah for the sample.

This is a tolerable fruity tisane, but nothing particularly special. The lemony part of it is quite present, but so is the hibiscus. Glad I had only a bit.
