365 Tasting Notes

I need more of this tea-STAT. I went thru this one really fast. This tastes just like raspberry jam when brewed hot and when I threw the leaves in a pitcher to cold brew, this tasted just like a cake with raspberry filling. So good. Highly recommend this one.

Karsten had this one today and said, “Meh” (direct quote), so I’ll put the rest of mine into your next box.

I brewed this up while watching Scooby Doo with the kid last night. He loves Scooby Doo and so do I. I accidentally let this one oversteep a bit but you couldn’t tell. This is great. When brewed hot, such a delicate subtle lightly flavored pear green tea. When brewed cold, you have some fab pear iced tea. Very versatile tea. Super happy with this.

Shame on me. I’ve had this tea for a while and hadn’t tried it yet. This may just be the best herbal tea I have ever had. Sweet Cinnamon Pastry Treat. The bf and I devoured this one. So very good. I don’t see this one lasting long. We drank this while we watched Annabelle. It comforted me while I was scaring myself silly.

Loved Annabelle! The beginning with the “cult” invaders was so frightening!

Nichole

Every time they showed her sewing I just cringed. You knew what was coming!

Marzipan

Did you rent it or is it on Netflix?

Nichole

I think it is running on Cinemax right now.

Fjellrev

I do the same, stall on trying things. You make me want to order this sometime!

Nichole

Holler at me and I would gladly send you a sample if you like.

CHAroma

Mmm, sounds good! Added to the wishlist. :)

Thank you Marzipan for this one. You were right. I loved this one! Sweet honeydew with a bit of honey on the side. I wasn’t such a fan of this hot but I LOVED this one iced. So good.

I can’t tell you all how much I love the name of this tea. I have been in love with the Evil Dead Series and Ash (& Bruce Campbell) for years. I really liked this tea. This is one tasty Earl Grey. Not my favorite Earl Grey but up there on the list.

But lets be honest here. . .I would have bought this tea on the name alone.

My dad & I had a lot of fun with this blend. We used some of the leftover herbs from Litehouse Foods. It was tasty. Just not to the "WOW’ point. I want to try it again. This company is so adorable and they have some tasty sounding blends on their site. Just need to try this one again.

Thanks Shae again for turning me on this company!

Shae

I’m glad you’re having fun with some of their blends! I think they’re such a neat little company, but maybe I’m biased because they are local. :) I sent a couple more of their blends your way on Saturday so you should get them sometime today.

Nichole

You are awesome! Thanks hon!

Was super excited when my first month’s teas arrived on Saturday from Handmade Tea. I ripped open the pkg and was a little puzzled by the tea. Roasted Chocolate Pineapple Tea Mate. Yeah. . I wasn’t so sure. But the packaging was fantastic! A wax sealed envelope. So fun!

Brewed up the tea and was insanely impressed. This tasted just like a robust coffee with dark chocolate notes. I never picked up any of the pineapple but that may be just because I need to shake up the bag. Super impressed with this. So is the boyfriend. I am going to have to hide this one if I want to keep any of it for myself.

I love this company. I have found only a few blends that just weren’t my cup ‘o tea and those were floral ones. I just don’t really care for floral teas that much or maybe I just haven’t found the right one.

This is one tasty chai blend. Recommend it for those who aren’t fans of really spicy chai. Sweet with a kick. Added some cream and it was yummers!

I love finding an obscure company and then my friends like it.

Shae

I’m loving your new blog!!

Nichole

Thanks Shae! I had fun with it today and had a Butiki day while watching Gremlins.

Nichole

Marzipan you should be getting it anyday! Wohoo for tea pkgs!

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. After going thru a divorce, moving a couple times, and going thru some hard times, 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!
