1850 tasting notes

I’m going to start this review by saying that I’m really glad I picked this one up at TJ Maxx. This is my kind of tea!

So this is raspberry, vanilla and rose. And it’s actually the second tea in a row that I had this morning (the first being todays Dammann advent that will be logged tomorrow) that was SUPER creamy. Just lovely. The vanilla is so smooth and sweet. The raspberry is nice fruity, the rose is lush. I even like the green base on this one, which is admittedly not super prominent but it is somehow robust enough and plays well with the rest of the flavors. Yum!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
