501 Tasting Notes

This tea has become my staple every day tea. I am just so in love with the citrus jasmine flavor. I need the warm comfort of this tea because I see a looming issue at work that I don’t want to deal with. Bleck!


I have yet to try this one! Must remedy this soon! :)


There may be some in your box that is awaiting one more goodie. . .


Oooo Awesome! Thanks Nichole! :D


Did you see the French Toast Dianhong in your box? :p

Do you think the tangerine should be stronger though? I did make them light…


I personally don’t think so. I liked the lightness of the tangerine.

Liquid Proust

Awesome :)
Jasmine is a hard flavor to pair with fruit… I think the only other one I might even attempt would be peach. However, if I lose my mind I might try to make cotton candy jasmine pearls :)

drank Sour Squidward Tea by Geeky Teas
501 tasting notes

Yep. Squidward Fandom Tea. Gotta say, I’m glad Squidward is getting his time in the spotlight finally. This tea my kiddos would even drink. Simple apple flavors that remind me of a crisp green apple. So far my favorite of the Geeky Teas.


Flavors: Green Apple




Aw I love squidward!


Me too! I looked at the mix and really thought it was going to be bland but I’m craving that tea now. It was such a good cold brew.

Happy Monday all! What a weekend. I could use a few more hours sleep for sure.

This is one of last teas I have from Leslie @Paper Box Goodies (Etsy Store). This was a white tea chai which was nice but I can’t say that I would want more of it. For being a bagged teas, her teas are pretty good. This particular one just didn’t give me the chai and white tea flavors I was hoping for. But for fans of not overly spiced chais, this one could be for you.

For the rest of my sleep deprived ramblings- http://www.cuppageek.com/index.php/2015/09/14/elderberry-jam-from-paper-box-goodies/

Have a great day all!

Yummers! This tea is hitting all those floral notes and more. So good. Plus, the tea brews up to an almost neon green color. I’m glad I still have a ton of this tea left. I drank it just about the entire day yesterday and plan on taking it to work with me again.


Happy Friday Sipping All!

Flavors: Floral, Sweet

Don’t quote me on this… but I believe each infusion will have a slightly different color because of the ratio of bluepea. I am really interested to hear about a cold steeping; I’ve never had a cold jasmine outside of a jasmine ginger ale.

I start each day off with a cup of coffee. GASP I know. But it just helps me get up and going and from there I drink about 10 cups of tea plus some each day. I found a really good coffee inspired tea. And it made an amazing latte!

drank Princess Peach Tea by Geeky Tea
501 tasting notes

TeaNTees I thought of you the whole time I drank this one!

This is a nice black flavored peach tea. The tea did surprise me of how it reminded me of fresh peaches and not artificial flavoring. I thought for sure that was what I would end up with. Not sure if I would want more but I couldn’t help but give it a go.

And this wasn’t a sipdown- this was an add on order :/

Happy Friday all!



“I can’t believe I got kidnapped… again.” – Princess Peach

This sounds like a fine tea to enjoy while playing Super Mario Kart! ;)
What’s next? Bowser’s lapsang souchong? ha ha


LOL! I would so love a whole line of Mario Teas!!!

Sipdown #27- Still loving this one. Sweet floral almost peach candy like flavor. One I’d like to have more of one day.


Some of their puerhs are getting good as well.


I have one of them. I’m so intimidated still by puerhs. I feel like I need training on how to drink those.


Oh you don’t need training. A Gaiwan a scale a cup and hot water you are there. Tea is simple we make it hard sometimes.They have a nice Bada and Jingmai.


I have all that. I will try it this weekend. I swear I just have a block when it comes to puerh. Plus I’m scared I’ll start off a whole new addiction to a different variety of tea that I currently don’t have a whole lot of :)


You just ask any question you have, I will be glad to assist you.


I am going to take you up on this offer. I’ll send you a PM!

drank Coconut Matcha by 3 Leaf Tea
501 tasting notes

Rich, creamy, coconut matcha with almond milk. Is there a better way to start your morning off? Sipdown #28!



It always sounds good when you throw in coconut and almond. Then I remember that it’s still matcha and I’ve only ever had one I liked and it had tons of sugar and spices as well as milk. :)

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!
