drank Yogurt Strawberry by Tsaa
1292 tasting notes

Yay!! an honest to goodness hit!
I was determined to try randoms until I found one that tickled my picky palate and this is where I ended up. Phew! what a trip…
Now the tea itself is unique to be sure. The yogurt is strong, much stronger than any of the other yogi-teas I’ve tried… and I like it! reminds me of the dried yogurt you get on raisins or peanuts. It’s very fragrant as well. The strawberry is rather mild but hanging around in the back. I don’t mind, as I’m willing to sacrifice that aspect in the interest of yogurt. Mmmmm.
As for soap, as is mentioned in Kristaleyn’s review… I don’t notice any when the cup is piping, but it gets a little abrasive when cool and I think that might be where you get the soap-ness from!

Yeah, I’ll have to try it again and see if I can get the taste to be non-soapy. It was good otherwise! Funny thing though – I left the teaball sitting overnight in a bowl, and in the morning when I went to dump it, there was a little pool of literally sticky jam underneath it. So much fruity goodness in this tea :)

I know you don’t like to drink the cup til it cools somewhat. Maybe try a little sip when it’s hotter, with spoon? (I find that moderates the temp)
Jam!! I think I’ll have some on toast… haha :P

Kittenna

I’ll try that. I tried it under suboptimal conditions the first time around, what with being in a travel mug and having to leave the teaball in forever and whatnot. It was in there for over 2 hours, likely. Probably will try it again soon!

oh dear, yes I can see how two hrs would be problematic! fingers crossed for your next cuppa :)

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
