drank Irish Cream by Tea Desire
652 tasting notes

From the Teeny Tiny Tea Box!

This tea smells like just your average black tea. There were tiny nodes of… tan stuff in it? It looked like tiny chunks of brown sugar or something.
Steeping it, it smells like a bright black tea. No irish cream smell.

Tasting it… blech. I don’t know??? Is this how Irish Cream is supposed to smell like? Maybe it’s just gone bad since I’ve had it for so long D:

Reading all the other notes, I think my tea has just gone bad. Darn. I wish I drank it when I got it!

I’ve never had Irish Cream before, but I did have the chance to try it a couple months ago! I took a class called Wines, Beers and Spirits where we mainly learned about the process of making wines and different wines and all. Of the 20 meetings we had, 18 of them was wine related, 1 day for beer, and 1 day for spirits. Spirits day we had 9 different ones and they were in teeny tiny little cups. Probably not even 1/2 an oz of each spirit, but by the end, I was gone hahaha. IT WAS ALL FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES OKAY. But at the end, my professor told us about other stuff and he brought out a thing of Bailey’s and all the people who wanted to could get a taste of Bailey’s, but I opted out bc I couldn’t hold that much alcohol in my body ahha.
I’m a lightweight okay. I’m like 5 foot 2, weighing 110 pounds, and I always just limit myself to 1 drink whenever I go out with my friends, and that’s probably just once a month. So yes, very much a lightweight ahhaha.

I’m legit on a tea streak. Three cups and it’s just half past noon?! Ahh I love tea tons :)

This is just your usual black tea. Nothing too special.
I think I added too much sugar though, but it’s still pretty yummy!

Thank you tons to TeaNTees for sending this my way!

ALSO sorta pointless since I haven’t been on in forever and I’m sure none of you missed my pointless posts about life, buuuuut it was just publicly announced yesterday, I got the Lead position in my department! For those of you who forgot, I work at Disneyland and it’s tons of fun and I’ve been there for almost a year and a half now. I decided to apply for Lead aaaand they announced everyone yesterday. I’m quite chuffed :)

Congrats! i remember how excited you were about getting the Disney job. I’m glad the job has been working out so well. :D




Fabulous! My daughter and her hubby are going to Disney Thursday through Sunday to meet up with her hubby’s dad and his gf who are visiting from Ireland, and just by coincidence, my son and his gf and gf’s mom are going the very same days – completely unplanned! Congrats on the promotion!




Aww, thanks so much, everyone!!

Because of my Cashew Turtle from 52teas earlier, that got me to a very chocolate mood and I pulled this tea out!
For some reason it smelled like green tea leaves?? It was so weird. But it tasted like nice chocolate fudge! I got some hints of butter in it, as well as the lovely smooth chocolate taste :)

Flavors: Butter, Chocolate, Cream

Wam Bam, back to tea! I’ve been away for so long mainly bc life D:

I’m slowly getting tea back into my life and I actually forgot how much I love it!
Anyway, I got this from Sil AGES ago. It did have that old tea taste, but I’m not too picky and it still tasted pretty good with a bit of milk and sugar to help it along!

The chocolate and caramel notes in this tea was lovely. Smooth, not overly bitter like some other chocolate teas that I’ve had before.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

Had this two days ago and it was quite possibly the nastiest tea ever oh my gosh. It tasted like leafy pool water. Like no.

Laughs bc I threw the remaining 3g of this into my Steeper, brewed it like normal, poured it over ice, and spiked it with a bit of spiced rum. Yuuuummmm :))

Ohh thank you TeaNTrees for sending this tea my way!
I love lychee and this tastes almost like lychee! The flavouring of this tea is super juicy and it’s so good! Lychee is definitely a bit lighter than this tea though, so that’s what’s throwing me off. I think if this flavouring was done in a white tea, it would be so good!


Oh yes, a white version of this would be lovely!

Yummy yum yum yum Yummy Yummy YUM.

Ahh this teas is lovely! I’m so happy I decided to purchase the “They’re Back!” Collection! This tea tastes so much like Blueberry Jam, but with lemongrass and a slight hint of pineapple. A lovely tea to end the night, mainly because it’s soooo good and there’s no caffeine!

Flavors: Blueberry, Lemongrass, Pineapple

From TeaNTrees bc it was supposed to be a small “Here I have teas, take some!” thing to a LET’S DO A FULL ON SWAP sort of thing :)

I’m drowning in schoolwork and I need tea to keep me company, so this one it is! Just a nice rooibos so I can sleep tonight :)

I got a lot of rooibos, not so much Cream Caramel :( that always tends to happen with me and rooibos teas! It smells great, but then it all just goes away once you steep it :(

drank Thai Tea by cha FOR TEA
652 tasting notes

I have no idea how many times I’ve drank this, but I’m drinking it right now :) I’ve probably had this like five times so far this year at least hahahha

But there’s this place called Cha for Tea right by my school and whenever I’m craving boba, I go here! So good, but a tad pricy. People already know me there and I always get the same thing. A large Thai Tea with boba :))

Super good! I don’t make Thai Tea on my own so I have this place make it for me :)

So for my school, I’m taking this class which is pretty much the capstone class for my major. Last quarter, we divided ourselves up into 4-5 person management teams and wrote out an entire management plan complete with forecasts and budgets. Now this quarter, we put those plans into action! Each week is a new management group, and each week, we get a different role. I was a server today and it was fun! We’ve been training for a week and a half and today was the first day we were open to the public so it was pretty fun :)

I offered to drive one of my group mates to her house so she didn’t have to take the shuttle, and we decided to get boba after class soooo Cha for Tea it is!!

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops


Disneyland. Literally.
