669 Tasting Notes
I got this many moons ago when Laurant was handing out samples of his tea. I jumped on it because VariaTEA loved them so much. She sent me a whole lot of their zodiac blends, but this time with Laurant, I went with the greens and black teas!
This tea is so good oh my gosh. Lovely chocolate/caramel/vanilla scents when you open up the baggie, and it comes out more as it steeps. It did turn a bit bitter when I drank it straight, but I think this is a tea that needed the milk and sugar!! Ahh so so SO good. When I lessen my tea stash, I’ll definitely get my hands on some of this tea :)
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Cream, Vanilla

Freakin boyfriend is such a creep oh my gosh (but he’s fab and it was quite funny ahhah).
So he knows that jump62359 is my everything and he decided to google that and STEEPSTER CAME UP AND HE SAW MY POST OF HAVING TO MEE IN TRAFFIC AHHAHAH
EJ if you’re reading this then hi.
But seriously though. Steepster is fab and I love it tons, but because of my busy schedule, I almost never have time for tea? Tonight is special bc I have things that need to be done and I figured this would be a great tea bc honeybush
Prepared in store bc I was craving some jasmine, and apparently you get a free refill! Sooo yeah. I got my free refill today and I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD BE FREAKIN TRAFFIC AT 2PM AND I HAD TO PEE SO BAD AND IT WAS SO PAINFUL WOW but tea was okay. The lady who prepared it didn’t really wash the steeper out so it had the previous taste which was like chocolatey and weird and did not work with this tea at all.

THIS BOX IS MASSIVE and there’s so many teas I’ve never had before! This is a definite first.
Nice, sweet, light aroma coming out of the package.
Definitely has that roasted genmaicha smell right when I poured the water in! Now with the matcha, what difference does the matcha make? I haven’t a clue, so that why I’m here to find out!
Hmm.. Tastes like a slightly buttery version of the generic genmaicha I’ve had. Nice, and I can definitely tell the difference between the two.
And back into the box this goes!
Flavors: Butter, Roasted, Toasted Rice

I went through a chocolate phase not too long ago, and I just had to try this tea! Smells super chocolatey, not getting much mint though.
Not exactly the best tea out there. It went a bit bitter and it may have been my fault for letting it steep a bit too long, but nothing a splash of milk can’t fix! Decent tea, just nothing I would go out of my way to purchase
