1214 Tasting Notes
I mindlessly sipped away at this tea this morning while I worked on my crochet pattern stuff.
Last night I was so tired after brazilian jiu jitsu, but I needed to buy soymilk after class. I saw chocolate soy was onsale and I bought that instead of buying the usual stuff – now I’m stuck with chocolate milk for everything!
I wanted a pancake for breakfast and it was made with chocolate soy – I figured Eight Candles would match. I almost had S’mores, but I have more of Eight Candles. It was a very caramel, marshmallowy chocolate morning!
I have some leftover of this tea from a tea trade – I let my roommate try some of this tea. He’s the one who drink coffee thats insanely strong, and also best friend of my husband, this friend has been having a rough time with his health, despite being not even 30 yet.
Anyways, he was steeping it up, and I went upstairs to my office to work on tomorrow’s tea review. He aim’d me and said, “that is the best tea i’ve evar had”
(yes, our household instant messages each other, despite we could probably walk or yell across the house).
He was really happy, and loved the resteep! I think he wants to go to Teavana and get some more! I’m gonna make him cookies after dinner.
I made this as a breakfast smoothie this morning. I’m too lazy to make oatmeal or eggs.
So, raspberry white matcha, some frozen raspberries, soymilk and soy protein. The raspberry flavoring is really strong!

though, relating it to tea caffeine instead.
Been having a long day. My husband got in a minor car accident yesterday (just cosmetic car damage) and dealing with that – plus he got like 2 hours notice he has to do a 3 hour drive to help out his friend, who’s quite sick. I was almost done my review, but I had to stop and start making food for his drive, as well as treats for his friend.
Finally, onto Tropical Mango! This tea is best iced! It has that “classic iced tea” flavor, but with juicy mango. Much better than store bought mango iced tea!

You need to try this tea cold steeped. I didn’t think it would turn out, as I thought the coconut wouldn’t come through very well. I was totally wrong. 3.5 hours in the fridge turned this tea sweet, coconutty, refreshing with lots of levels of dimension from the white tea. Also creamy. Better than coconut water!

p.s. tea leaves look great on my head.
Oooh, pear tea! I got this in a free sample weekend deal. Man, Della Terra sales are super tempting, especially when they got new teas!
I love the fun appearance with the golden sugar crystals and pearly gold sugar balls, mixed with the black tea leaves!
Taste wise, is a juicy – either drippy ripe or baked pear that is sweet with a black tea base. The pear is quite delicate. Simple and tasty! I was expecting something more fun, since the appearance is cool and recent tasting of Della Terra’s more unique teas (corn!)
This be a good tea for a new tea drinker, or a gift for one of those old school black tea drinkers.

I got so many black teas that have been lonely and not used since I’ve been on a green and white kick. Ditto for my mate collection!
I realized yesterday that my cold is gone, probably from sinus rinsing (ew) so yay! I can go back to working on reviews! And drinking good teas – though I did drink that sakura sencha from Den’s yesterday, lol!
Fantasy, today tasted quite smokey caramel to me. Not much in fruity taste sadly, but kinda sweet from the honey in the blend. Not bad, but good black tea to start my day.
