427 Tasting Notes

Yep. . . .I had to do it. I had to review a Star Wars tea today. I couldn’t help myself! I am a huge Star Wars fan and so is my son who is 9.

This tea was pretty good. . even tho it had red rooibos in it. I could barely taste it. Gives me hope that I might find more blends like this. This one was rich and nutty flavored. Pretty tasty. Not sure if I would pick this one up again. . but it was fun to try it.

Here are the rest of my ramblings. .


Flavors: Almond, Hazelnut, Nutty


This is great! You found a Star Wars tea xD

Adagio actually has a couple different ones. I just happened to have this one. I couldn’t resist!

Another gem from this cute Etsy Shop!

Chocolate-Check. . . Toffee-Check. . . . Hazelnut-Check. . .This was a delicious chocolate dessert tea. If you love chocolate teas, check this one out.

I need to send this to Liberteas for her take on it.

Here is the rest of my review:

drank Mango Papaya Bai Mu Dan by 52teas

Made this one iced today and it is pretty tasty. I instantly thought that it tastes like a mango with a velvety creaminess feel to it. Very well done. The mango provides the right amount of sweetness and fruitiness. Just a simple tea.

I know it is an oldie but it is a goody. One of the issues with 52Teas is that once a flavor is gone, it is gone. I could see myself re-ordering this one. Oh well. I’m sure I could find something similar.

Flavors: Mango


One of the things that Amethyst and I have discussed at length is that once we get 52Teas going and we feel pretty comfortable with it, we might have a ‘side’ brand called “D’s Teas” that would carry our most popular brands and keep those in stock on a regular basis.


Awesome! That would be fantastic!


We of course couldn’t do that with every tea because that would be insanity. But, we’re thinking maybe the best sellers and the most requested teas – around 10 teas.

Yum, Yum Yum!

I am really enjoying this. I think I’ve steeped it 3 times. Really happy with it. It doesn’t really even taste like tea. The more I steep it tho, I am picking up more of the sweet creamy flavor that the honeybush is providing. This will be perfect for this summer. The strawberry lemonade tastes fresh and doesn’t taste artificial at all.

Flavors: Citrusy, Creamy, Lemon, Strawberry

drank Honey Vanilla Chai by TheBeesTeas

This is hitting the spot. I have been so busy with this mini van stuff and work lately that my tea consumptioin is suffering! This can not happen! I must go back to my obession. . .I miss it so!!!

So far I have really enjoyed the blends that I’ve tried from this adorable Etsy company. I’ve got a few more to check out but I’m impressed.

This particular blend is their Honey Vanilla Chai. I am not a fan of chai for the most part but I found this one to be quite lovely. This wasn’t overly spicey and didn’t make me go nope after the first sip. All of the flavors mingled well and the honeybush brought a great natural sweetness to the tea.

Here are the rest of my thoughts on this treat!

Oh how I enjoyed this tea. In no time at all I went thru the sample 1 oz that I bought. Delicious iced. Delicious hot. Even cold brewed it and the lemon flavors just popped. When I cold brewed this, it tasted almost like a raspberry lemonade. When I brewed it hot, it came out more like the name of the tea. Very happy with this one. Hoping to be able to re-order more soon but I took the dive and bought a mini van yesterday. (Between my boyfriend and I we have 4 kids) So my tea budget may have to be re-worked since now I have a car payment. Haven’t had one of those in about 10 years!

Anywho. . . Here are the rest of my ramblings. . .Happy Tuesday all!!


Flavors: Candy, Lemon, Raspberry, Sweet

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!
