85 Tasting Notes

This is probably one of my favorite teas from teavana. Glad it was part of the heavenly sale so I could get more.

This is also a fav of mine from Teavana. By the time I got back from vacation it was no longer on their web site. Do you know if they are discontinuing it ?

Tea with breakfast. Pretty darn good for a bagged tea.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

I had a small sample of this that I took to my tea and chinese food date with my best friend. We both enjoyed the heck out of it. It was smooth and sweet without being too chocolaty. Definitely considering buying some once I make room in my stash.

I had to try this. And I’m not unimpressed. Having been a little spoiled by starting with Matchachino before trying the real thing, I wasn’t expecting to like it. I have a lot of trouble with unflavored matcha at this point, but hopefully that will change as I adjust to the flavor. This one though, is very good I’m happy to say. Its easy to drink as well.

That said I have a sample of the eggnog one (I don’t like eggnog even slightly but I was curious and now I’m too nervous to try it). Anyone wanna swap it for a sample of another matcha that they might have?

This is one I got in a trade and while I am just starting to enjoy ginger anything, this is definitely drinkable. Flavor is there but not overwhelming. I still enjoy the heck out of, I might even buy some if he remixes some.

This surprised me with how good it was. I made a whole pot so what I had left was gone. I might consider getting more if I can find it, but I’m not chasing down more Roobios when its such an iffy drinker for me.

drank Winter Nog by Della Terra Teas
85 tasting notes

This tea smells phenomenal. It was in my Black Friday Surprise Seasonal Box and I was leery at first. Egg nog is one of a handful of foods that I just CAN’T stand. I’m usually really good about not being picky with what I eat, but when I hate something I hate it.

When I opened the package of this I was immeditely releived that it didn’t smell like anything I don’t like about egg nog. It brewed up super dark and pretty, and hubby kept mentioning how he smelled blueberry when he drank it.

I’ve said before that Roobios is a tea that can go a bit ‘mulchy’ for me. And this one manages to get past it. Its lovely and smooth to drink, with something a bit fruity to the flavor. I’ll definitly finish the ounce that I have, but I doubt I’ll order more.

The directions on this say to make it in 16oz of water. I made it in 32 and its bearably sweet. That should tell you something. But its still delicious. If I thought the rock sugar was worth buying, I’d buy a ton of the stuff. But I really don’t sweeten my tea much. If I’m in the mood for sweet I drink something from Della Terra with sprinkles or something in it. This is one of the teas that started me down my path into tea-dom so I can’t hate it no matter how much they oversugar it.

I really don’t understand why they insist on putting rock sugar in their samples. Especially with teas like this one which is sweet to begin with and really doesn’t need to be sweetened.
