426 Tasting Notes

Anybody see last night’s Game of Thrones episode?

I don’t know how many times I said the word “No”. Episode 9 historically has always given us a shocker and they have been setting us up for that spefici event, but I was hoping it still wouldn’t happen. Wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without a few moments like that each season.


While I was yelling at the TV, I was drinking this beauty. I was surprised I liked this one so much. I was honestly expecting a generic citrus flavor, but what I actually got was a bright citrus sunshine flavor that I drank down fast and instantly went to the kitchen to cold brew. The papaya is sweet with the green tea rounding out the blend with a grassy feel. Sunshine in a cup is what I kept thinking.

Flavors: Citrus, Grass, Sweet

I watch GOT religiously, LOL. I’ve read all the books, so it always irritates me a little when they don’t stick to the story, leave out characters, change the timeline, and such, but thus is the way with HBO, and I’ll take what I can get.

Happy Sipdown! This wasn’t a favorite of mine from 52Teas. To me it was just a lime flavored green tea. It was good but not a “wow” tea or one that I will miss. I’m just happy to complete a couple sipdowns today!

I have never had a tea with hops in it before. This was a unique experience. Reminded me of the first time I had a beer. You didn’t like it and first but the more you drink it the more you liked it. I thought this one was better cold. Reminded me of a cold beer with a vanilla finish.


Flavors: Hops, Vanilla

We have Episode 9 tonight of GoT! Woohoo! I can’t wait! In the past, we have had shockers on Episode 9. Ygritte’s death, the Red Wedding, our beloved head of the Stark family literally losing his head. . . In honor of GoT this week, I will be reviewing GoT based teas all week besides my typical Tea of the Day.

Today is Wilding White- a white and green tea with peppermint and lemongrass. Very soothing!

Sipdown! You will be missed my friend. I’m hoping June’s blend is as great as May’s.

drank GIN AND TONIC TEA by Urban Earth

I loved the idea of having a gin and tonic tea. But I didn’t get the “tonic” taste. What I did end up with was a delicious lime flavored mate with hints of mint.


I really enjoyed this.

Happy Saturday sipping all!

Flavors: Lime, Mint, Tangy

This is a fabulous bagged tea. Sweet and cherry with the sencha giving it such a smooth finish. This isn’t overly sweet. Just the right amount. Hot it was fantastic but brewed up as an iced tea. . .This was pure cherry bliss!

Yet again, the horror geek in me is coming out. This tea made me think of iced tea for the summer days. . .which makes me think of swimming. . .which makes me think of. . . Jaws. Strangely this is how my brain works 90% of the time. Ha!

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!
