669 Tasting Notes
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
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!
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 :(
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 :)
In other news, I OPENED A RESTAURANT TODAY AHHHH.
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!!
Got this sample from NayLynn!
This was from our first swap from forever ago. It’s definitely an oldie bc I think I forgot about it since it’s been stuck in a baggie in a baggie in a baggie in a baggie full of all my other matchas, and this was at the very bottom!
Good, but definitely tasted a bit weird haha. I’ll give this an actual rating when I drink a nice, fresh cuppa!
I knew I only wanted this tea because I wanted to use my new milk frother hehe :)
Backlog from last week.
Daddy had a Peet’s giftcard and he’s a fan of Starbucks soooo he treated me to Peet’s while he just nibbled on some of their baked goods.
It was just starting to get hot back home and I knew I wanted to try a tea of theirs and I saw a list of their tea coolers! I decided on this one because come on, it’s jasmine!! And I love jasmine teas so much :)
This tea was just okay. It was good and drinkable, but I didn’t taste the jasmine at all. It just tasted like a sugared limeade or something like that. I like limeade, but I would have preferred to taste a bit of the jasmine! But it was a nice tea to drink on a warm day
