(backlogging from last night)

I got this in a sample pack quite a while ago, and I took ages to try it due to my dislike of herbal teas. Last night I was cold, and wanted a quick cup of tea that I wouldn’t resteep, so I figured I’d try this. It was about what I expected. Pretty dull, flavour-wise, but with one particular note that stood out. I didn’t hate it but I wouldn’t purchase it.

drank White Christmas by Harney & Sons
433 tasting notes

I never quite know how I feel about this tea. It sounded amazing (which is why I ordered it), and it didn’t quite live up to that expectation but I’m not totally sure I can explain why. It’s not bad, and I don’t know what I would change to make it GREAT so I always end up feeling kind of “meh” about it. It smells fantastic, and the vanilla note is strong but not overwhelming. I just don’t ever look forward to drinking it… I always end up going, “Oh, I haven’t had this in a while so I might as well have a cup” and it’s taken me forever to get through the tin of bags.

Had this in the afternoon today & I didn’t want any caffeine. This definitely isn’t a favourite of mine, but honestly for an herbal blend, it’s one of the better ones in my opinion. That’s probably because the spices/flavours are so strong that they overwhelm any grassy/herbal notes (which are usually what kill any chance of me liking an herbal blend). I wouldn’t choose to drink this out of all the teas in my cupboard, but out of the non-caffeinated ones, it’s a decent choice.

drank Black Satin by Remedy Teas

It’s taken me quite a while to get through this. While it’s a nice blend, it’s not the kind of tea that I think about drinking even when I’m not drinking it, or ever get a “craving” for. When I do drink it, it’s been so long that I enjoy it, but I always feel like I want to LOVE it and I can’t do more than just like it. I do (someday, when I have less tea stashed away to use up) want to order some different blends from Remedy Teas, because this is still an interesting blend and I’m very curious to see what some of their other teas are like!

drank Pumpkin Spice by Bigelow

I had one lone bag of this blend left, and nothing else I had at work was appealing to me this afternoon, so I thought I’d finally use it up. I didn’t want to over-steep it so I might’ve overcompensated (I know this is a very weak-tasting blend regardless of the steeping time, in my experience), and there seems to be a very prominent smoky note today that I don’t remember from any previous tastings. I guess I’ll take smoky over nothing, so it doesn’t really detract, but I’m reminded again of why I gave the rest of this tea away.

I read some reviews for this before I bought it (it was on sale, and I figured what the heck), so I wasn’t too surprised when I tried this blend. As someone else stated, I don’t understand exactly why this is considered a holiday blend because there’s honestly nothing special or remotely holiday-ish about it. No fancy flavours or notes, just a kind of average breakfast-y black tea blend. I like it enough for what it is, but I don’t think I would bother repurchasing. I’ve left it at my desk at work (where I drink most of the black blends that don’t require much notice… I just need the caffeine!) to finish up the box.

Profile

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
