69 Tasting Notes

One of my favorite green teas so far. It may not be the strongest, but I don’t think the citrus flavor overpowers it too much. Granted, I love a fruity tea… Resteep was extremely weak and not worth it.
Also great iced, but it isn’t a strong one. A little sugar helps, though. It is a perfect refresher in the summertime :)

I definitely tasted the mango, but the coconut seemed to hide from me. It was definitely fruity, which I like, but it seemed mild… I may not have steeped it long enough. One of the better ones I’ve tried by Stash, though.

drank Earl Grey by Dammann Freres

Catching up on my tealog!
My cousin took me to brunch at Firestone’s last week on Sunday, and I decided to try the earl grey of this brand, which I’ve never heard of before. It was quite delicious, but I can’t accurately rate it since it’s been a while. One of the better ones I’ve tried, I think, as I recall having about 3-4 cups of it.

Tried 3 to 4 cups of it today at lunch in DC. Bagged version, though, so I don’t know what the loose version is like. It was up my alley; a strong enough tea base without being overpowering (yay green), citrusy flavor and savory flavor from the ginko, which I could only describe as “leafy,” but not in a bad way. It’s a little less fruit-y than Good Earth’s green with citrus something-or-other, but still good. I see I’ve tried other teas from this company before and been satisfied.
The tea did get weak by the third steep, but that’s typical for a teabag.

drank Vanilla Caramel Truffle by Lipton

Steeped this twice today. For some reason, the smell makes me think of a latte, and even though I hate coffee, I kind of like this smell. I like the rich but not overly dark presence of the tea, mixed with the sweetness of the caramel and vanilla. The flavor lingers for a bit, which is nice. Makes a good “dessert” tea, though I still prefer Pomegranate Delight by Twinings in that regard. I relax a little with this one, but others have a greater effect on me.

Not my FAVORITE caramel tea, but it is very good… even for me who doesn’t like most non chai blacks- and a bagged tea at that:)

The water at the wellness center where I had the tea was not as hot as I like nowadays, so the tea came out weak. It seems decent, though I haven’t been too impressed with the varieties by Stash that I’ve tried. It was definitely lemony, though.

drank Pomegranate Delight by Twinings

We went to Bob Evans for brunch, and as usual, I ordered the tea basket. I was intrigued when I saw this for the first time in the front, so I tried some. Smelling the bag, I already sighed with delight. There was a rich combination of tea and fruit just in the smell, and after the first sip, I was in heaven. The flavor was very full and satisfying and needed no sweetening. I’ll definitely get some to use as a dessert tea!
Second steep was much weaker, though, probably because it was bagged.

I added three drops each of honey and lemon. Sure, it has them in it already, but I have a voice jury in 3 hours. Going to go eat a small lunch and warm up in a while, but for now I’ll just relax and focus my mind. I love this tea!

drank Calm by Tazo

Made this at lunch and drinking the cold remnants.
I was agitated this morning, thanks to issues concerning my major. Chamomile seems to relax me when I’m in that state, but I definitely need to be in the mood—I don’t usually care for chamomile. I like the blend of herbs in it, giving sweet undertones.
