427 Tasting Notes

Every once in a while you come across a tea that has the “Wow” factor. A lot of teas taste pleasant and are enjoyable, but they don’t have that knock you off your feet kind of good going on. This does. I have never had Soursop Tea before and I couldn’t believe how good it was. This tasted just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch without the sugar overload. You have to let it simmer for about 15 minutes but after that, you are greeted with some kind of deliciousness.

Sil I have a box that was returned to me for you. The post office was being nit picky. I will throw some of this in for you.

Fresh Raspberries and juicy peaches with a delicate white tea base. Really like this one. I’ve had this blend before but those tasted flat and stale. This one tasted bright and fresh.

Tonight is the night! I am so excited! I just love GoT and can’t wait to see what will happen. From the rumors I am seeing more and more, I know who is going to take the fall tonight. Boo! But from what I’m understanding, that is part of the books as well.

This tea is a great herbal. Sweet apple baked dessert is the flavor and fragrance I got from the blend. I am a fan of Solstice Brews and this one didn’t let me down either. Brewed hot and brewed like an iced tea, just sweet apple goodness.

Thanks Marzipan for getting this order together. . .This tea is amazing cold brewed. So so good! Sweet Fruity iced tea goodness. This would be great with fresh berries in it. I already finished one pitcher and have another going. Haven’t even tried this hot yet.

This is one peppery chai blend. Worthy of it’s name for sure. This would be a great blend to cook with, adding a kick to chicken and vegetables. Kind of reminded me of the spices you would get from Tabasco sauce. Enjoyed it but I’m not sure how often I’ll reach for it to to drink as a tea. I have so many ideas on cooking with it. Don’t think it will last long.

drank Wild Mint by BeauTea Studio

Loved this fresh herbal minty blend of peppermint and spearmint. Seems simple but I’ve had this sort of blend go wrong many times, leaving me with a toothpaste like flavor. This one tasted like fresh cut mint from the garden. Refreshing and Soothing.

drank Mango Rose by Just Add Honey

This tea was fantastic. Like fresh mangoes in my cup with a green tea backing. Sweet but not overly so. Just my kind of tea. This is one of 3 teas offered in the May subscription plan from Just Add Honey Tea Company. I was pleased with this box (this tea and the honey won me over) and excited to see what will be in June’s box.

Almost done reviewing the line of GoT inspired teas from Margaret’s Fine Imports. It has been a fun project.

Today’s tea is an oolong/green tea blend with hints of jasmine. When this delight is still hot, all you really taste was a smooth grassy like tea with the tiniest hints of jasmine. As it cooled, the jasmine really popped. I’m not much of a jasmine fan. I still enjoyed the cup I 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!
