648 Tasting Notes


I was on Steepster mobile and wrote this note in the wrong tea…

So yesterday I went in to Teavana to pick up my free tea bc Starbucks rewards, and the employees there were kinda frantic and all over the place and they were a bit impatient with ringing me up so they just gave me my tea for free? Service wasn’t too great, but hey, FREE TEA.

So today I decided to visit another Teavana (the one on the way to my Aunt’s) and I was being helped out by Grace and she was LOVELY. I got this tea prepared in store, and got my free ounce of Jasmine Oolong to take home. We talked a bit about tea (of course) and I told her about how I’ve had like half their tea wall already bc I send tea out to friends and they send tea back to me. She said that was one of the best things she heard that day and I’m all I KNOW RIGHT. IT’S THE BEST THING EVER.
Then as I was leaving, I wished her a magical day and it slipped out oops. I’m totally not a Disney cast member. Not at all.


I would be so stoked if a regular person I ran into not at Disney wished me a magical day. Though I might be kinda weird about it and freak them out with my “Oh my god do you work at Disney do you love it are you best friends with Goofy I bet you’re best friends with Goofy…” and so on without pausing for breath. Incidentally, I wish they sold loose leaf tea at Disney World. XD


I used to work at Walt Disney World, and they actually have a tea and spices store in Downtown Disney! It’s in the Spice and Tea Exchange, attached to Mickey’s Pantry and Earl of Sandwich . If I needed a loose tea fix, I always went there when I did my College Program in WDW. Well, there and they also had the Disney Wonderland tea from the regular store.


I should actually give Downtown Disney a fair chance. I went once for a little while and hated it, but it was crowded and there was a lot of construction. I’m going to check out this tea place though, thanks!


See, when I worked, they were just starting construction.
Try getting there earlier in the morning, like before noon! Usually when it hits the afternoon, that’s when everyone heads over to DTD.

It’s not like a massive tea store like Teavana or DAVIDs, but they have a nice collection of blends and smelling jars


Thanks. :)

Also, is it cool if I use your tea rating guide, or something like it, on my profile? I’d credit you. It’d be nice so I can get some consistency with my ratings, most of the time I’m still like “uh, this is good, but what number, out of 101, to give it?” Or, “well, I rated this tea as an 80 but I cant remember what it tasted like; is this tea better than that one? should I give it an 85? 90?” etc. XD


Hahah yeah sure, you can definitely use it if you’d like!

Teeny Tiny Traveling Tea Box

Mmmm a lovely roasted oolong to start off my morning! I haven’t had an oolong like this in a while :)
Nice tightly rolled leaves that expand like lovely, pale/light yellowy/green liquor after the first steeping.
Just a really great tea!


I like this one quite a bit. It’s just the right amount of roastiness.

Teeny Tiny Tea Box round 2

Sampling this because I smelled all the teas in this box (which is a LOT of tea) and this is one that looked like it would soothe my tummy!
A pretty decent chamomile blend. A bit too heavy on the chamomile, not enough with the peppermint.
It makes a nice bedtime tea!

My Just Organic Teas Kickstarter arrived in the mail!
Well, it arrived in the mail about a week ago, but I got it sent to my aunt’s house because I’m moving this weekend.

This smells like a lovely spiced apple cider! Just all the warmth and ALL THE FALL. THE BEST SEASON OF THE YEAR. I was definitely expecting a brighter, rooibos/blueberry tea, rather than the cinnamonny tea that I got, but hey, it’s tea and tea is lovely :)
Definitely a dark red cuppa with the hibiscus. I could have done with a bit less hibiscus, but I’m sure a bit of sweetner would do the trick!

((I’ve had so much starbucks in the past week it’s crazy))

Split a venti soy chai fraupiccino with my sister yesterday, ordered just a simple tall chai this morning.

Dude. I work at Disney okay. There are 3 Starbucks I work at and it’s cheaper on property than at a regular Starbucks so… yeah

you have no idea how many iced green tea lattes I’ve had in the past week okay
this is probably my favourite way of having this drink

tall iced soy green tea latte. Unsweetened, light ice.


That’s how I order it, too! ;-)


Well, except that I get venti. lol

Lazy day so it’s this tea in my DT cup shaped filter tonight!
Thank you VariaTEA for sending this tea to me! I love rooibos so much, and this definitely had that woodsy smell to it. Don’t really smell the strawberries and cream so much dry, but once I poured the water in, the other non woodsy flavours came out :)
Right now it just tastes like water but SOOOON, I had a slight hint of strawberry so I’m excited for this tea!

Mmmm a very lovely tea. I can definitely taste the strawberries and cream, with a slight hint of wood coming from the rooibos!

Stuck my hand into my matcha bag and pulled out Sample #3 from Red Leaf!

In other news, I was so excited for the VoluntEARing opportunity for class today (we were going to the LA Food Bank and help out), but I woke up at 7:50 and we had to be there at 8… yeah it takes about 40 minutes to get there WITHOUT traffic. So I texted my teacher and told him that I wasn’t able to make it. I was so sad!
I was in bed at around 11, but I didn’t sleep till 5am and when I was finally asleep, I was tossing and turning all night long. Last night was terrible and I wasn’t able to volunteer which made today even worse.

So a cuppa matcha to hopefully make my day better, even if it’s already halfway over

A lovely Jasmine tea from VariaTEA!
This lasted me through two steepings, and one for my roommate. This is a great jasmine, and not at all bitter :)


I’m glad you enjoyed it. Knowing how you feel about jasmine teas, I thought you’d appreciate it.

Teas in my cupboard are in my personal collection.
I’m always looking forward to reducing my stash so swappable teas are listed here:

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.
