This is my favorite tea I’ve tried so far! It’s really pretty in the bag, little strips of blue flower stand out really well against the dark colored tea. It smells like Fruit Loops! The pecan flavor comes through really nicely without being overwhelming. I’ll definitely be getting more of this one!

The flavors in this tea are so hard to identify. I truly can’t tell what this is supposed to be. I taste black tea and something mildly desserty, but I can’t tell what. It’s mild and pleasant, but it leaves me feeling pretty neutral since I can’t tell what it is.

This one tastes like chocolate chip pop tarts to me. Mmm.

Aw man, maybe I should have tried a super overleafed mug of it before sending the tea box along!

2021 Homemade Advent Calendar Swap – Day 25
From Skysamurai.

Finishing up the last of my Advent teas today. Only one day late, maybe not too bad. I’m glad to see a Plum Deluxe tea in the mix. I tend to like their blends, though admittedly I haven’t tried an awful lot of them. I do like the ones I’ve had though. I happened to forget about this one and left it to steep on the counter for far too long. It’s a bit bitter now, but not at all undrinkable. It’s reminiscent of a chai blend, but I wouldn’t exactly label it as such. I can also taste the cocoa, which surprises me. With all the other flavors, I didn’t expect to taste it. Perhaps the almond flavoring is coaxing it out. I’m glad I was able to try this one – it seems to have been a limited edition tea, so I’m not sure if they’ll bring it back again.

Thanks, Skysamurai, for a sharing all these teas with me for the Advent season!

Shae Advent Day 23

This is pretty similar to other Plum Deluxe EGs I’ve had, but I really like them, so I don’t mind! It’s a really nice EG creme. Lovely creamy flavor, smooth black tea, and a pleasant bergamot. It’s super good! I could drink a lot of this.

Shae Advent Day 16

This was a light, fruity tea. I wish it didn’t have the black tea because that gave it a slight sourness. I enjoyed the green rooibos, and the fruit flavor was authentic and fun. I’d love an herbal version of this!

Latte Sipdown (204)

Did this taste like pecans? Yeah. Was it delicious? Uhhh not really. It was quite sweet and nutty but in a weird, slight artificial way. It was fine but not one I need again.

Thanks again, AJRimmer! I almost didn’t write a note for this, since on the first steep session I was convinced it was the wrong tea. It seemed more vanilla than hazelnut. The second steep session, I can taste a BIT more of the hazelnut, but it still seems like a very sweet vanilla to me. But I was seeing jasmine which was odd. The description mentioned oolong, black tea, rooibos, but I wasn’t seeing any oolong. And the name just didn’t fit. It’s fine if I just taste it as it is and not expect anything!

I enjoy a good cup of brisk black tea, no cream, sugar, or milk. I enjoy the partial astringency. Also enjoyable as a mid-morning cuppa. It works well with oat milk. Though it is better when the oat milk is already warm. This is a perfect cross-over tea for those stuck in tea bags. All that being said it lacks some of the deep earthy and woodsy notes I love in other Assam’s I’ve had.

I was craving a spicy evening cup, and I was out of the Good Earth tea a like. This was mild. I actually tasted nothing at all. Since I don’t have a sense of smell I don’t taste much. But I usually get some spice. I sure do with the Good Earth brand. Which is not to say this was awful. It was a cup of warm of water, which is better than a bitter or sour cup of warm water.

This one was much lighter than I expected, so I’m guessing I got more of the green rooibos in the mix than the black tea. I’ll give it a better shake next time and see how it turns out. Love seeing all the cardamom in this one. So much cardamom!

Flavors: Cardamom

2021 Sipdown #35
I don’t normally buy green teas but it turns out that my partner is really into them, so I picked this up for him in my first Plum Deluxe order. I like earl greys so I figured that even if he didn’t like it, I might. Luckily, we both enjoyed this one! We ended up going through it rather quickly this weekend, as my partner is sick and this was his soothing tea of choice

Sampler September! Another sampler from my Tea Fest PDX fundraiser bag.

The steeped tea smells strongly of blueberries… with a tarter edge than the sweet and syrupy blueberry I often get from teas that reminds me of a pancake syrup.

The tea has a nice body for a flavored black tea, with a touch of breadiness coming through. The flavor is juicy and fruity; I’ve rarely eaten much huckleberry in my life, so my tongue is tasting blueberry. Sweet, but not syrupy/candy sweet, with a more juicy/fruity edge. Very smooth.

My work thermos will be empty by lunch.

Flavors: Blueberry, Bread, Fruity, Smooth, Sweet

Not sure on this one. I think if it were sweetened or maybe mixed with lemonade, I’d like it better.

I think the lemongrass is a bit strong the way I brewed it.

Brewed hot, then iced.
