Recent Tasting Notes

I love mint tea, so was very excited to try this one out. Unfortunately, it is confiused and wants to be a pillow mint. Chocolate is very difficult to place in a tea in right proportions. This is obviously a novice attempt and not to my liking. It left a fuzzy taste in ones mouth. Not pleasant at all.

This makes for a lovely iced or sun tea. Perfect for the balmy summer nights.

Don’t waste your palatte with this tea. It is so perfumed as to only be able to drink a few sips. Simply disgusting. In general I have found only one tea I liked at this shop and that is the Sunshine Tea/herbal. the rest, not so much.

I rarely throw out tea, but this one hit the bin after the first cup. Pretty cheap tea, not at all worth the money. Best advise, avoid this retailer as never had a good cup from their store.

Oh no! This was not what I thought it was going to be! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this floral tea, but I work on the magnolia campus, so I thought I should give it a try. I wasn’t even able to finish the cup!

Definately not what the name implied. And I never thought it would be so perfumed that it would overpower. Possibly one of the worst teas I have tasted to date. I too was not able to take more than 3 sips before throwing it out. Don’t waist your money.

Wow there’s a lot of orange in this tea! Natural dried orange, freeze-dried orange, it just seems a bit powerful. I’m not sure what it is (maybe the rose?) but this doesn’t strike me as a christmas tea as much as I expected from the name. It’s okay, but not one I’ll be seeking out again next season.

Update: I’m clarifying my ratings system, and rating the tea now.

I way oversteeped this. I just forgot I was steeping and looked at the mug and realized it was a lost cup. However. Add a little soymilk and sugar and it wasn’t bad. Not at all.

Just had a cup of this! While it reminds me a lot of other mint chocolate teas, it has a bit of a bite to it. I’m going to have to drink a lot more to figure out exactly what the difference is. ;)

This new tea shop opened up in Raleigh. It’s a small storefront, and apparently has existed for some time on the internet. My favorite part is the phone number: tea-yall. This was one of the samples they had out. It was iced and surprisingly flavorful. I’m not a huge herbal fan, so I didn’t get any to take home, but did enjoy the sample.
