drank Birthday Cake by Bluebird Tea Co.
467 tasting notes

So this was a sample that was included in the last shared ordered I had with Marzipan & Liquid Proust. I should have included it in one of their boxes. This sounds delicious and I wanted to like it so bad. . .but my arch enemy struck again! So alas, this tea just wasn’t for me. Made me sad. I wanted a sprinkled birthday cake filled cup of love. Instead I got a funky weird woodsy taste cuppa that I could barely take a drink out of.

Anybody interested??

Comment on my blog and I’ll draw a random winner. This is basically a full ounce with a tsp missing. . .I’ll include other goodies too!

What’s your fave “cake” tea? I am a cake fanatic and am still searching for just the right one!

So far “Granny’s Cake” by RiverTea is the best cake tea I’ve had but unfortunately RiverTea has gone the way of the dinosaur it seems. :(

Off the top of my head-I did like Bluebird’s Vicki Sponge Cake cold brewed. That was raspberry jammy with vanilla cake on the side but that is it. I too am still searching for that perfect cake tea.

Being a huge fan of green tea, I was excited to dive into this one. I really liked it. Sweet green tea with hints of a more veggiel/earthy finish. And I got to break out my gaiwan. Too fun!

Trying to finish this tea up so I cold brewed it. Tasty! Brown sugar pineapple delight. Yum. Should have cold brewed this one a long time ago. Hopefully when they come back, this tea will still be around.

drank Neon Jasmine Green by AxelheimTea

I love discovering new teas. Hitting up Etsy in my spare time has been a lot of fun. But this tea, just isn’t for me. This tea has a weird smoked flavor. Like a smoked turkey flavor with a sweet twist. I really can’t explain it. The tea is aged in cranberry so I’m wondering if the aging process has added in a weird factor. This isn’t even a good weird. It just tastes off. I couldn’t even finish the cup. I dumped it and didn’t try it even cold. This was just a no for me.

Liquid Proust

Reading neon, I was hoping that either this would glow in the dark or had dried out bits of highlighter…

Haha, That would have been cool! Glow in the dark tea!

Liquid Proust

I am going to assume that it wouldn’t be advised to buy a tea that is labeled as glow in the dark… based off of what I read, it would be under a blacklight that a liquid would glow and I am unsure of a time that I would be drinking tea near a blacklight.

Thank you again Shae! This is one of the best teas I have ever had cold brewed. Sweet, slightly floral, citrus twist, smooth black tea base. Very well balanced.

My mom filled her jar with this one last time we went to the market. I chose something different, but after one sip of hers I went back and bought a bag of the dried tea to take home. It is so good!

This one is my favorite of theirs so far!

2nd sample I had from my order from Amitea Organics. This one is perfect for the spring weather. Lemon herbal goodness with a honey twist. Super happy with this.

This is a interesting blend. This blend literally has 13 different ingredients. I was a bit scared when I was steeping this one. It smelled like a sweet spicy blend. First sip, I was hooked. This is really good. This tastes like a sweet cinnamon treat with hints of mint and other spices along the way. There is also an earthy quality. Really good. I really recommend this one.

I’m brewing more of this up for my trip to go see NKOTB today. Yep. NKOTB. My bestie and I saw them last year and it was a lot of fun. Vanilla Ice even came out to sing Ice Ice Baby. I’m hoping we have another surprise guest tonight.

Enjoy your day!

For the good, bad, and geek on this blend- check out my new blog-

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!
