933 Tasting Notes
Yum! Very tasty! I love the combination of the earthy black base, cinnamon, maple flavors with buttery pastry finish. With sweetener, the maple flavor pops more!
I like this blend more than Pancake breakfast!

Moonfired french toast?
Have a very large cup of this tea. I would of made a pot, but I was too lazy to go upstairs to find my tea pot.
Very savory smooth caramel for this round, with some candy sweet orange. Sipped away with breakfast and Animal Crossing. There was a sailor seagull passed out on the beach. Apparently, he was trying to sail to Canada.
Anyways, time to finish this massive cup and start my day!
NEW ANIMAL CROSSING OMG!
Yeah, spent a few hours playing and made a pot of Coconut Grove to sip on. Very nice, I love the white tea base and the floral coconutty this.
Then, I had to quickly chug the rest of the tea, so I could make it to the brazilian jiujitsu event, Metamoris II, which was okay – annnnd back home and playing animal crossing!
I dragged my husband all over Torrance for tea blog related business. First was tracking down a certain tea item that I had a coupon for, to feature on the blog. But also, there is a Lupicia in that mall too. I didn’t get any teas from Lupicia, but I swiped a sample cup of iced tea. Once home, I needed a full tumbler full.
YUM DURIAN TEA! Though, once I’m done this tumbler, I’m going to have to baking soda scrub it and my gravity steeper to get all the durian essence out of it.
Uhhhhh Whoops! I left this to cold steep.. umm.. maybe 4 days ago? At least, a week at most. The tumbler got shuffled to the back of the fridge somehow and I completely forgot about it until today when I was wondering where my tumbler went.
Tastes somewhat okay, it’s not bitter but is kind of flat. I can pick out the nice floral and cherry, but no coconut.
I’ve been thinking about this tea for days. Every time I open my tin that has all my black Della Terra teas, I can smell this tea.
Sooo good! Had a small pot of this tea with some caramel waffle cookies, and they paired amazing together!
The yellow cakey flavor with pineapple is super yummy!
Only a couple days till Animal Crossing for the Nintendo 3DS!
Wow, this tea is yummy! It is the first rhubarb tea I’ve had that isn’t tart crazy hibiscus flavor!
Rhubarb + Custard is very creamy – like drinking piles of milky custard ontop of cooked smushy rhubarb. That custard taste is just dreamy and amazingly vegan as well!
I’m not into red rooibos and found the rooibos flavor fairly masked, only peaking as a little aftertaste with the stevia, once the thick creamy aftertaste is gone.
Very tasty! I’d reorder this again!

annoyingly, I couldn’t find the amigurumi bird penguin thing I used on the last Bluebird Tea Co review. I need to make more owls, but these days I’ve been fighting knee injury and annoying headaches (shhh and Nintendo 3DS playing)
I share a bit of this tea with my roommate, who’s health has been not so great and had chemo this morning. The nurses have been telling him to drink more tea too! I’ve been giving him some of my older teas, and trying to plan an order too.
See my previous notes / blog entry for review of this tea – he steeped it for like 30 minutes because that’s how he rolls! My roommate was very impressed with the flavor and “it has the perfect amount of lavender”.
I made this iced, with slices of lemon, frozen strawberries and I threw in some chia seeds for texture. Very very tasty, strawberry tangy tastic!
Not sure if I’ll get more of this tea, but I will be doing another Steep City order, but I’m just so piled up with teas at the moment.
I was very excited for the new Persimmon Tree teas to come out (and try!) and Butterscotch looked the coolest of the new line up!
The white tea base is nice, adding lightness to the butterscotch buttery smokey flavor. The tea has a nice, savory end with a bit of spice. Sweetened, Butterscotch becomes more like liquid candy!
