1412 Tasting Notes

I like the flavors here, they just seem very weak. I took the teabag out after a few minutes but it was very weak so I put the bag back in and just left it in while drinking it. It’s probably the chamomile that makes it weaker.. chamomile shouldn’t really be with these flavors anyway. I like the idea of these flavors but it needs to taste stronger! Axe the chamomile and it should be a better tea.

There is a mild scent of maple to this tea. But anything blueberry is non-existant. I may have ‘burned’ any of the blueberry flavor out though, since I usually wait a bit before steeping after boiling. This time I didn’t. I do love a decent black tea though.. so if you’re just going for that, it’s pretty good. Disappointed there isn’t more maple or blueberry flavor here though…

drank Rooibos by Tick Tock

This has the really dry and fuzzy characteristics of a white tea to me. Not like a usual red tea… it’s strange. Those are the two reasons I normally don’t like a white tea. There isn’t the usual rooibos flavor here. Disappointed.

drank Chamomile Court by Lipton

I think plain chamomile teas are starting to bore me, so the spice, just enough rosehips, and zesty orange add enough here to make the chamomile enjoyable, so it isn’t just straight chamomile. Surprising actually that I like this as much as I do. I nabbed this tea bag at my cousin’s wedding but decided not to drink it there.

drank Sweet Sin by Joy's Teaspoon

Sipping this again and I think it is even better the second time I’m trying it. A very true vanilla tea. A lot of teas claim they are vanilla and really aren’t. But this one is very vanillay and the rooibos really aids that flavor. I still think a stronger raspberry flavor is needed, but this is a lovely tea.

Trying this again, I somehow made it completely different. It now tastes like raisins! But still tasty!

drank Linden Flower by Twinings

Oddly enough, this is probably the Twinings tea I’ve liked the most. A lot of the other Twinings taste very artificial, but since I have no idea what linden flower is supposed to taste like, that must help. It has a very mild, pleasant flavor to it. Hard to describe.

This was one of the few left in my Numi sampler box. I usually don’t like white teas, but this was lovely, simple, and flowery. There was something “nectary” about it too. The Numi White Rose was slightly better though, just because it had that rose aspect.

This was a weird combination. I don’t think I would choose to mix these together. There wasn’t enough lemon myrtle to even notice. A second steep was tasteless. Never been impressed with a Twinings tea and I think I’m going to give up on them. I don’t think I’d ever buy a box of it anyway.

Of many of the teas I’ve tried, I think oolong has the biggest spectrum of flavors. Every oolong is very different from the next. This one is an example of my favorite kind of oolong. It’s a very nice light springy green color. The flavor is a lovely floral. I’ll be re-steeping this a few times, since I know oolongs are good for it! I’m already on the second steep and there is no difference in flavor at all. A perfect oolong tea!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
