546 Tasting Notes
A big ol thank you to VariaTEA for sending this tea my way!
Oh dessert teas. And it’s caffeine free as well! Ahh I love teas like this :)
This is dang good okay. It smells like a typical vanilla birthday cake dry, and the sweetness just carries over as it brews. The woodsy rooibos takes over a bit too much to my liking so the sweet birthday cake gets lost a bit, but it’s still totally fine.
But this is a lovely tea. Love love love all my rooibos at night :)
From the name, I’m assuming it’s supposed to have notes of white wine. I honestly don’t know how wine is supposed to taste like since I’ve never had alcohol before! Yep. People are very surprised to hear that I don’t drink and I’m like.. I’m not old enough?? So yeah. That’s a thing that happens all the time.
I have cooked with alcohol before. White wine in our risotto, red in our coq au vin, beer in our bbq shrimp, and oh our tequila lime chicken was quite possibly the BEST thing I’ve ever tasted! But never alcohol on it’s own.
This one smells nice! It smells familiar in a way with the muscat since I always had muscat gummies when I was younger. This tea looks and smells great! I love the addition of the jasmine flowers and the cute little sugar nodes :)
Taste-wise, it’s really good! Oh wow, I really like this one. I think I like muscat flavours over grape. Muscat is sweeter, which I love :) But yeah, I’ve definitely had like 2 muscat teas and 1 grape tea in my life so I can’t really compare them.
I’ve had this tea for a while and only now did I decide to drink it? Dang. Well this is an absolutely wonderful tea. Definitely an ‘everyday’ sort of tea… if only that can be a thing! I have so much tea I need to rotate it all. But at least I know this one is great :)
And I sorta feel like Lupicia is starting to boom here on steepster :) I used to never see them on my dash, but now they’re there all the time, which makes me uber happy :)
Decided to try this one iced!
Ahh I think I’m starting to love iced teas now. I used to only drink hot tea, but this one is pretty good iced.
I taste no lemon whatsoever, but the cream is good. Ori was one of the teas from the Hobbit sampler packs that sounded so good on the website, but it is sort of a let down. It didn’t taste as good as I expected it to be, but it’s just a nice, generic creamy black tea.
Just 2g of this left so into the sipdown pile it goes!
This is definitely the first oolong tea I’ve had that I liked iced more than hot.
Hot was a bit… weird? I don’t know. But I like the lemony taste of this iced!
I find that icing oolongs really brings out the musky, smoky flavours out, which I don’t really enjoy in a cold drink. Because this one tasted more of lemon, rather than oolong, I figured that it’d be great iced! Good for a hot day like today :)
Shoutout to shmiracles for sending this tea my way :)
First time I had this, it was absolutely TERRIBLE and I had no idea what to do with it so I drank like 2 or 3 sips and it went down the drain.
I had this other tea not too long ago, Aloalo from Lupicia, and it had that similar weird tart taste that did not work at ALL. Then I decided to throw it into a mug full of ice cubes and see how it’d do iced and it was TONS better.
So now, I’m sipping down the last 2g of this and making it iced! Let’s see if that saves this tea.
Dang. This tea is just… tea. It tastes like the generic iced tea that you can get from the soda fountain at restaurants.
A beautiful tea to help me soothe my tummy. And I’m drinking this tea to break in the new mug that I got!!
I got that, my Augustus Waters shirt, and a This Star Won’t Go Out bracelet :) Ahh okay yes, busy busy day so I’m going to leave this note here! I’ll write a better one next time I have this tea :)
Decided to have this tea hot AND cold today!
Brewed up 9g of this in a 24oz mason jar and poured that into my water bottle, and I had like a lot of leaves left and I totally felt like I could still squeeze a bit of flavour out of them so I just took all the leaves, threw it into my Perfect Infuser, brewed it in boiling water for forever and I’m drinking it hot now!
Dude. It’s pretty good! Nice and refreshing melon flavour, though it does taste like an artificial watermelon.. but it’s still fairly nice. And I love the addition of the peppermint. Though it’s hot, it’s very refreshing.
My cold brew is sitting in the fridge right now. I’ll edit this in an hour or so. Just going to drop a couple ice cubes into it and take it with me to class :)
You know, I keep forgetting that Kombucha is tea!
I personally prefer the ones with chia in it cuz I sorta love the texture.
This is the first time I’ve had regular non-chia Synergy.
I saw wee specks of silver stuff at the bottom of this and shook the bottle, not expecting it to explode on me! My sister told me that the ones with chia are the ones that are slightly carbonated, but I didn’t expect the regular ones with be carbonated as well haha. But still, I managed to shake it up a bit and pour it over ice as I watch Iron Man :)
Umm.. yeah this isn’t the greatest kombucha I’ve tasted. It tastes like… GINGER. YES. PINK CARBONATED GINGER. Sister loves it though and she just left, dang. Ahh well, I’ll just finish up this glass and I’ll just drink it little by little over the week :)
Another sipdown from the lovely shmiracles :)
Yep. Black tea with coco and yumminess.
Currently busy watching Iron Man 3 before I have to meet up with my friend to study sooo yeah. Lazy tasting note. Here’s my previous one that actually has notes on the flavour and things
