500 Tasting Notes

From the Here’s Hoping TTB

This was pretty good. I liked the rich nuttiness that you got in each sip. It worked really well with the green tea’s buttery smoothness. I could easily see getting more of this tea. Off to make another cup!

drank Lovely by Liquid Proust Teas

Enjoying this one while I’m working thru lunch. It’s been one heck of a week! I like it. Fruity with hints of floral. It reminds me of a sweet strawberry floral tea but I’m also eating right along with this tea so that may be screwing up my taste buds. No matter, this one is pretty good. Can’t say I’d want a ton of it but today I’m enjoying it.

This tea is going to help me thru today. I can already tell it is going to be one of those days.
Such a fantastic tea to wake up to. It seems to be my dependable tea whenever I need that warming tea hug.

drank Cucumber Mint by Handmade Tea
500 tasting notes

This one was soooo good!!! Crisp clean flavors that really make you happy. The white tea base kind of sat back and let the cucumber and mint do their thing. Tasty as a hot tea, iced tea, or as a cold brew. I’ll be sad when this one is gone.


And in other fun tea news-I’m doing my first tea giveaway on the blog. Think Great Pumpkin! (There will be Halloween fun teas involved!)


Flavors: Cucumber, Mint


I’m really into white teas lately!

These were ok, not my favorite. I think these are an older sample I had which makes sense why the flavor was a bit more bland and not the lovely jasmine flavor I was hoping for. Am going to try the last few pearls as a cold brew for later this afternoon. Hoping the flavors come thru a bit stronger.

I think I liked this tea a whole lot better the first go around. It tasted more like a flat chocolate watered down drink. Not bad, but not something I would really need anymore of.

drank Root Beer Float by 52teas

This is actually pretty tasty. Tastes just like a creamy root beer float but my brain can’t wrap itself around the fact that the tea is hot. I did try this as an iced tea and it seems like it got lost in translation.

The weather is still pretty hot but I had to try out the this tea when it came the other day in its purple pkg. I literally torn the packaging apart to get to it.

I cold brewed this because I wasn’t in the mood for hot tea while it was so humid in the house. I could have shut the windows and turned the air on but with 5 boys in the house, it is nice to have the fresh air coming in.

Sweet pumpkin clove happiness is what I am greeted with. Very reminiscent of pumpkin pie. The honeybush is pretty strong in this tea-I kind of which that was toned down just a bit. I really like it but it isn’t my favorite pumpkin tea. I actually think the Celestial Seasoning Black Pumpkin Tea is still favorite. The pumpkin flavor is so strong in that tea. Yum!

Besides the Pumpkin Chai from David’s Tea and the Celestial Seasoning one, can anybody recommend any other fall teas that are not chai blends that have pumpkin or apple flavors in them?

Happy Friday everyone!


Flavors: Clove, Pumpkin

Liquid Proust

I can send you a few samples of possibilities.


I really love grandma’s pumpkin pie by dellaterra teas, or east indies tea company (della’s supplier). Best, best pumpkin tea I’ve ever had.

Oh where to begin. Its been a crazy couple years. My life has completely been turned upside down but I’m very happy where I landed. I’m finally in a great place-Living with an amazing guy and his hilarious yet full of attitude twin teenage boys, and my two adorable kiddos in Central Illinois and there is no other place I’d want to be.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!
