338 Tasting Notes

Very similar to Celestial Seasonsing’s Sleepytime. I like Celestial Seasonings better since I can get the vanilla version. I’m not a fan of chamomile but I do like to sleep :-D Nothing wrong with this but it just serves its purpose.

Backlog… it’s amazing how these can build up.

As will almost all Harney and Sons tea it’s black and green is nicely balanced. They always see to get their bases very well done.:) I was surprised by the guava but it is good. The floral perfume -y scent and taste were hard to get past. Not sure if I would take a cup if offered.
Thanks The Cookie Lady!

Nice citrus-y green. Nothing spectacular but nothing bad. Can find a similar taste in many teas. The advantage is that it is decaf. Thanks Ost for the share.

I have to say that I am in agreement with the others who have reviewed the tea. I like ginger, I like lemon but with this I’m not so sure they brought them together well. Can’t really find a positive except to say thanks to say “Thanks” to Ost for sending this my way. At least I know not to buy it.

I am enjoying this tea from pkmnnerdfighter. The tea has a nice chocolate and peppermint flavor. I am noticing a oily film on the top that is distracting. I’ve noticed that oily film in other white chocolate teas. It makes sense , some times white chocolate does seem greasier than regular chocolate.

I can’t believe I haven’t written a tasting note on this tea! This has become one of my favorite fall teas! It is soooo smokey and good. It brings back the memories of bonfires and campouts on the beach. Remember bonfires and football games and leaves changing color? Well this is it! I don’t think I would enjoy it as much at other times of the year. Maybe a cloddish (Spell check is hysterical) or a cold-ish night in the summer.

I feel bad that I can’t put it in a swap but the scent is far to strong to put with anything else. I have it wrapped in 5 layers of baggies and in a separate canister right now. I have about 3.5 ounces (some a gift from a friend who knew I liked it).. I can’t drink all of that myself and don’t want it to get too old. If anyone would like some, I’ll be glad to send it out. I can’t put it a package with anything else so I don’t feel this would need to be a swap… just a "share: with my lovely friends.

Flavors: Smoke

I had a delicious cup of this before my husband and I went on a 4.7 mile hike with lots of ups and downs and twists and turns. I had the rest of this in a tumbler waiting for me in the car which might of helped me keep my speed up. ( 17 min. per mile) Yikes, my knees are sore! But I enjoyed this tea both before and after our walk.

Now what kind of tea should I drink for the knee pain?

The Cookie Lady

That sounds like an awesome hike!!

drank Lady Grey by Twinings
338 tasting notes

I can’t believe I’ve never had a Lady Grey before. I really enjoy Earl Greys but never really went beyond it much. Well. I am really enjoying it. I only steeped it for 2 min. as I have found I really don’t like oversteeped black tea. I put in a touch of vanilla stevia and swooned. I mean… lovely. The bergamot was a little be further back that in an EG which was OK. The other citrus flavors were well balanced. I always like the appearance of the cute little blue cornflowers whether I really taste them or not. I made this just before I was supposed to go walk with a friend. I really wanted to sit down and sip slowly but… exercise calls. I threw it in tumbler and enjoyed it while walking. (I’ve now lost 35 lbs.) :-D

Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon, Orange

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; Fflavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking :-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say.
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. It’s new DW time!!!! In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send them to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
