344 Tasting Notes
I’m so unsure on this one still.
It smells sweet and delicious, but at the same time, it’s almost too much. I dunno.
So, I steeped this one and it’s definitely ice creamy. I only added a bit of skim milk, no sugar. It didn’t need the sugar. I become happier with the flavour as it cools. The creaminess of it seems to come out more and more. This is definitely a tea that I couldn’t drink a ton of all at once. I’d have to have it a little at a time.
This one does do the ‘dreaded oil slick’ on top of it, but I don’t mind it. Swampwater does it too but it’s so delicious that I don’t mind. It’s kind of the same idea here.
1tsp of English Caramel by the Tea Haus, 1.5tsp of S’mores by Teaopia.
Milk and sugar added, but only a bit…
Honestly, not the best combo. I’m finding that the english caramel to be too strong. It actually feels like it’s overpowering the entire goodness of the s’mores tea. My thought when adding these two together was that it would make a caramel-y s’mores tea, but I’m finding that it is just killing it. I don’t know if maybe I should have used less of it, or maybe just used a different caramel tea.
I’m thinking I might try the s’mores with like Oh Canada. Something that is light but caramel-y.
Chance Combinations?! Yes pls!
I’ve done this one before, but I wanted to log it here also as I think it’s a great combo. From the Tea Haus, their Swiss Chocolate and the Hazelnut Cream. 1tsp of each for 3mins. Milk added. The tinest amount of sugar added. Equals chocolate hazelnut bliss! I’m in love. :) And it’s going to help me use up what I have.
One more tasting note on my beloved Stormy Night. The more I drink this one, the more I like it. I almost think of Saigon Chai drinking this one. The cinnamon taste is a little similar.
I’d buy this one again in a heartbeat. I want to get a full tin of it at some point. I have a GC for Davidstea, so maybe once I have sipped-down a few others I might get some more of this one. For now though, I’ll enjoy my last few cups (I have enough for one or two more cups.)
I believe this is the tea that I’m having this morning. I was too slow-moving this morning to actually take the time to make my own tea, which is very unusual for me. Normally that’s the one thing that I always make time for.
Anyway, this tea is fine for this morning. It’s a normal orange pekoe with a mellow/mild flavour. And honestly, that’s all I really have to say about this one this morning…
I’m having this one today again after not having it for a long while. I’ve reorganized my tea collection and moved it under the microwave on the microwave stand. While doing this, I decided it was time see what was nearly gone and condense things. I’ve got a bunch of small tins that I bought from Teaopia before they closed (they hold about 20-25g) and I moved all teas with small amounts into these tins. They are going to be the ones that I try to drink up first.
Anyway, onto the tea. I thought I’d have this one again as I can’t for the life of me remember what it tasted like. It is so perfect for tonight. I’ve been sick and I think I’m finally just about done the cold. So, this one was great ‘cause I could actually taste it really well! The strawberry is smooth and the ginger is a nice little zing! When I worked for the chocolate company, we had ginger chocolates and they were awful. I couldn’t stand them, and to see me liking this one is so funny. The ginger isn’t too strong, but gives the tea just a little something extra. I like the combination and how it seems to all flow so well.
I would definitely get this one again, but I will wait until I have more space in my tea area. I want to get the collection under a bit more control before I buy anymore. haha
I am one of the many people that are fighting a cold right now… boo… I hate being sick. HATE it. But really, who likes being sick?
I got this one when I went to Banff. I got it mostly ‘cause it smells delicious! I wasn’t sick, but rather wanted to have it on hand in case someone got sick or I was just feeling adventurous to try it without a cold.
I think I made this one a bit stronger than I meant to. It apparently made the whole main floor of the house smell like vicks vapour rub. I was able to smell it a bit, but after a while I couldn’t. I don’t think it really did anything for me other than it helped sooth my throat a bit. I would definitely get again though. Others found that it helped them a lot, so I would go with that based solely on their experiences
I always find that the Teavana teas smell better than they taste. I’m kind of saddened by this. I tried this one today finally.
The pineapple is pretty good for flavour, but I think it’s the rosebuds or something along that lines that doesn’t sit right for me.
I wouldn’t buy this one again. It’s fine, but just not enough of a flavour for me. I like Davidstea’s Tropicalia better. It’s got a similar taste, but I find it’s like nicer. It’s sweet and delicious.
I think I’ll make a big pot of this iced and finish it up.
I got this one for Christmas from my dad! Yaaay dad!! It’s a good one!
He did a good job picking this one. It’s very yummy. I am transported back to my youth again, riding my bike with friends and picking mulberries around our neighbourhood and eating them. Absolutely delicious! I would get this one again without a doubt. Right now I have about 130g, so I’ll be more than good for a while, but yeah, it’s very good. Yummmy :)
