Weak, and sad. That is pretty much all I have to say.

Mmm, I really liked this. It is balanced and dessert-y but not cloying. I feel fortunate to taste samples of things I will never have bigger amounts of, as sad as it is, because I’d rather experience a small amount of something great I can’t have again than not experience it at all. Very good.

drank Nosy Bey by Dammann Freres
456 tasting notes

This was odd. It has two of my favorite flavors in the whole world, peach and vanilla, but it tasted SUPER artificial and strong. I could have sworn I tasted the slightest alcohol bite to it. Drinkable, but not my favorite, so I will be rehoming the rest.

oh no, it sounds like the flavouring used was off – hate when that happens!

This one surprised me – it wasn’t super orangey or almondy. I found the oolong base to be the prominent flavor, and the orange just made it zingier and the almond made things a hair dessert-y. It is alright, but unremarkable.

This is really apple-y and good – sweet too, so much more like a red apple than green. I don’t really taste any floral notes, but whatever. I don’t need to. I like apples.

I got my certification today, and the director of field experiences from my education program emailed to recommend me for a long term sub position for fourth quarter this year. 5th grade at a local parochial school. So out of the blue, not even in the realm of my cert (though parochial schools don’t require them), but it is the first time I’ve been able to tangibly realize that there is potential, soon, for me to have a job I want and love and make the money I want and need. I have never made more than 25k a year my whole adult life, and living paycheck to paycheck.

Drinking only new and exciting teas today in celebration.

This is tasty, but not what a lot of people would think it would taste like. It is lemon, but more of a sweet lemon than sour lemon. With that, the tea is mellow and errs on sweet, and I think if you added sugar it would have a lemon candy aspect to it. I actually really like it, and I usually prefer fruit flavors to be strong, but strong lemon sometimes tastes artificial.

drank SBT: Cotton Candy by 52teas
456 tasting notes

It is downright creepy how accurate the cotton candy flavor is. The tea is strong, and it isn’t overwhelmed by the cotton candy, but the cotton candy is equally present. I cold steeped this and enjoyed it very much.

Iced 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is pretty good – sweet, caramel-y, a bit toasty even. I think next time I will have it with milk to make it even creamier, like caramel pudding.

drank Tamarind Pop by Butiki Teas
456 tasting notes

This was tasty, but I realized while drinking it that I’ve never had tamarind. At least not as a primary flavor to know what it tastes like. So unfortunately, I can’t speak to how accurate it is. It is a bit sweet, a bit tart, and warm tasting. Good for a cold morning like today.

drank Peach & Thyme by Fauchon
456 tasting notes

Super duper thyme-y, the peach really (surprisingly) takes a backseat on this one. I think the flavors could use a bit more balancing, as I do think peach could stand up to thyme a bit more equally and be delicious, but this is delicious too. I think it could make a very refreshing pot of iced tea in the summer as well as hot, like a friend and I drank it today. I was surprised I enjoyed it, as it is primarily herb taste and more a wisp of peach, but I totally did.

Ooh, that sounds interesting!

I am a 29 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
