Recent Tasting Notes

Random teabag in purse time!

I drank this while stuck at work and frustrated as hell. I needed something soothing to help me chill out, and this was my crutch to lean on. While not the pinnacle of refinement, I haven’t had a jasmine in such a long, long time. Tasted exactly like a jasmine green tea should. Nothing special or memorable. Just… there.

Flavors: Jasmine

leaf in hot water

I woke up this morning to find I’m involuntarily babysitting a 2month old. My beautiful niece, which gives me very little to do all day besides change diapers and drink tea! Yay! Sortof.

Anyways, on my recent order from Stash I bought a few teabags because I knew there would come a time where I just did not feel like going through the loose leaf struggle. Breakfast in Paris was one of them and this will be a definate reorder. I love bergamot, and vanilla, as I love most EGC but I don’t remember reading the description on this box. I really wamted a nicce flavored breakfast tea. The best of both worlds I suppose.

As I groggily made a cup with water from the Kuerig and made a babybottle at the same time everything may have gotten a bit mixed up ;) As little Myah is allergic to dairy I stayed away from the cream and simply added a tblsp and a half of raw sugar. (And two scoops of soy formula to the bottle) Stuffy as I am in the morning, the citris hit me good and caught my attention, and the bergamot lured me in. The sugar brought out the vanilla creaminess and made it a bit more filling. This is a great drowsy morning, nothing to do but chill breakfast tea. If Paris feels like a lazy morning then this tea is spot on.
Hay Wednesdays from Myah-Lemur and I. ;)

drank Cherry Almond by Stash Tea Company
1962 tasting notes

My friend gasped when she saw this flavor listed in the Stash catalog. She and one of my daughters are addicted to their White Christmas tea and buy it in copious quantities. So when they sent me a birthday coupon last month, I made sure to order this for our tea times together.

It has not disappointed her – or me. It is a nice, standard black tea base that does not require pampering. The cherry and almond aroma is thrilling from the moment you open the bag. The flavor is smooth and doesn’t disappoint. We had this today with lemon pound cake. She says she is ordering some of her own very soon.

The Stash catalog is bad news for my paychecks. I almost took it out to look at last night when I couldn’t sleep, but I didn’t dare, because the later it is, the more likely I am heading to a computer and clicking “Add to Cart” over and over…The teaware! The flavors! The teaware!

Nothing competition grade about this, but a really nice flavored black that most people will like, even guests who don’t drink much tea.

This is the only green tea I’ve cared for so far, and it’s also one of the only teas I will drink straight because the flavor is so yummy on its own.

A good sick-tea. Not the best (that award goes to cold 911), but my dad bought it for me so I’ll use it up for whenever a stomach ache hits me.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Spearmint

drank Peach Black by Stash Tea Company
1666 tasting notes

I just wanted something I could steep once. (I usually resteep everything – unless its oolong or pu-erh). But really this is so nice, I probably could have resteeped it. I really like most of Stash’s teabags. They might be my favorite grocery brand. There is a strong sweet peach flavor with a decently robust malty black tea base. The cup is pretty dark. It’s tasty and would probably be AWESOME iced. I’m lacking an iced tea vessel though!

Fjellrev

Nooo, hope you’ll pick up an iced tea vessel soon, especially with summer around the corner!

tea-sipper

Haha, I just have no idea what to get. I should probably just get a mason jar that is iced tea acceptable or something. :D

Fjellrev

That would totally work! I have a plain glass jug, nothing fancy, and it works like a charm.

adagio breeze

you don’t resteep oolong or pu? o_O

tea-sipper

No, I meant I steep oolong or pu more than twice. :D

caile

I love mason jars to keep iced tea in. :)

I received this tea in a boxed set and was so skeeved out by the ingredients that I perpetually put off trying it and then forgot about it altogether. Yerba mate and black tea in the same teabag? Monk fruit? Plus I’m not crazy about salted caramel anyway.

But I re-discovered it in the cupboard the other day and decided it was now or never. Happily, it’s not nearly as bad as I feared. I still think the mate and black together is a mistake — the mate gives it this weird undertaste, it would be so much better if it was a black tea alone. But the monk fruit is under control (I’ve had it in other teas where it was sweet to the point of nauseating) and the flavor is pleasant enough. While it smells absolutely like salted caramel, it only kindof sortof tastes like it. I don’t see myself buying this, but I think I’ll be able to finish the box.

Drank a cup of this while at an appointment today for something to sip on. Tasted sweet and a bit coffee-like in a dessert type of way; more like coffee flavouring than actual coffee I’d say. Pleasant to drink although not something I’d purchase to have at home.

Tamarindel

I’ve got this one! Not my favorite, but good when you need tea-bag tea.

caile

Yes, it was better than I expected really!

Snagged the bag from a motel breakfast buffet to assess properly vs semi-hot water available. A little smokey, a bit astringent. It’s nice. I’d happily drink it again, but not go out of my way to repurchase.

This was sent to me from a tea friend :) I’m very happy to sit and relax for the few minutes that I have. Today has been crazy busy. I finally do make it back home and find that my tea package (which i’ve been waiting for almost month for) finally arrives and my gaiwan is shattered. I have begun my dispute with the company and really hope to be reimbursed.

Anyways, I picked this because I am tired and wanted simplicity. This is one of the very few tea bags I own, so the choices are slim. I thought this to be very unique though. I’ve never had oolong in tea bag form. This had a very smooth taste. The mango was very slight and it was mostly milky coconut. I guess the oolong added an amber base but altogether it was a coconut brew :)

Very bad flavour, the maple seemed artificial and none of the flavours seemed to blend together. Being a Canadian, I was expecting this to be a lot more tasty than what it was. I expect more out of you Stash Tea Company ;)

drank Earl Grey by Stash Tea Company
1780 tasting notes

The double bergamot was tastier. This was so-so, but it worked in a pinch

1 bag for 250mL water @100C, steeped 5 minutes.

Good lavender aroma, with a much sweeter flavour than I expected. The tulsi is almost minty, and almost a bit like licorice. this might get soapy is steeped too long. Lovely — provided you like lavender.

Had some of this tea this morning!
So this morning was my final for HRT 382. This class and 383 go hand in hand bc we work at the restaurant on campus. 382 is the whole management planning bit, and 383 we put those plans into action into the restaurant. My professor said that we worked so closely with our teams this quarter, we need a day to chill and get to know our other classmates because we need to become a team and all that good stuff. So today, instead of a final like it said on our syllabus, we had a potluck and got to know everyone!

We just took some extra equipment we had in the restaurant and used that for coffee and hot water and teabags. They had this and chamomile and I really wasn’t feeling chamomile this morning.

I had this tea with a bit of honey and milk! Just like how I’d like my tea at home because I go to the College of Hospitality Management and we had legit tablecloths and nice plasticware and dude the spread for this potluck was over the top.

But yeah, this tea was good! It definitely wasn’t as strong as some other chai’s I’ve had, but it’s decent for a bagged tea. Good cinnamon flavour, and the honey definitely helped to tone it down a bit

I love fruity, tropical teas, so this sounded like it would be right up my alley. However, I am NOT a fan of hibiscus and that’s mostly what I taste when I sip this tea. There is also a bit of fruitiness and a slight licorice aftertaste, but mostly lots of tart hibiscus flavor. Not something I’ll be drinking again.

Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Licorice, Tart

I do like Hibiscus, but I didn’t like most of Stash’s fruit teas because of the Licorice. It tastes really weird with fruit flavors to me.

As always, I add honey to my tea for a natural sweetener.

A very nice Earl Grey. Let it cool a bit after steeping, as that seems to bring out the flavor more. The cornflowers really add a nice touch to the taste of the Earl Grey.

Wonderful flavor and no astringency. My girlfriend and I tasted a sample at the local stash and I ended up downing the whole thing. will definitely get it on my next trip.

A very light green tea, with just a hint of flowers. It can steep about three times, and it holds it flavor well. Very delicious!

Le sigh, another prolonged unforeseen absence… I hate it when I just drop off the face of the planet.

Also, the hubby and I are back on a no-caffeine diet, so that means no real tea for a while, except for these lovely decaffeinated bagged teas. Celestial Seasonings has a few, but they aren’t usually carried in the stores, and we’ve found some Twinings and Bigelow decaf here and there. This one I found at good ol’ Wally World (that’s Southern for Walmart… don’t ask). I was so excited to get a decaf chai! I’d missed it so much (we’ve been on this diet for a month now).

Anyway, I steeped it up and added some almond milk and sugar substitute. This particular kind of sugar substitute is called xylitol, and I spring for it because I abhor the aftertaste that stevia and other artificial sweeteners have. This one has no aftertaste, and behaves exactly like sugar, even in baking. :) But I digress. The spices were not overly strong, but they were there, kind of like the kid who sits in the middle of the classroom, and when you get to his name calling roll, gives you a half-hearted wave but says nothing. Anyway, I’ve noticed that decaf black teas have lost a lot of their “oomph” (and by “oomph,” I mean tannins), so you can steep them for much longer without getting that unpolished-copper-astringency. This black tea was no exception, and although I steeped it for way longer than I would a normal chai, the flavor was just lackluster. I’ll drink it, though, because sometimes you just have to have chai, lackluster or no.

Sometimes it is quite enjoyable to partake in a simple, unflavoured, grassy cup of this organic tea. Not the highest quality, but with a light touch of honey it works out quite well.
Particularly nice for those moments at work when you are much too busy to try and measure out your loose leaf. :)

Not even close to a true ginger tea but a good replica when you’re too lazy/sick to boil ginger. Honey + cinnamon would make it even better.
