860 Tasting Notes

Hello Steepster! It’s been a while…
This is one of my new favorites! It smells absolutely wonderful. Nutty, juicy, and fruity. The flavor is nice. It’s a lot more mellower than expected. The berry and almond flavors are there and blend nicely :3

drank Maple Bacon by Man Teas

This is an interesting tea. I was expecting more bacon flavor but it’s more sweet than anything. Not even really maple sweetness just a sweet black tea sweetness. I tried adding a pinch of salt to bring out the bacon flavor but no luck with that. I will have to keep experimenting with this one.

Heh, I just sipped mine (from years ago) down today. For me it got to be too much very fast.

This one is enjoyable. The strawberry is the main flavor here and the lemonade lingers in back and in the aftertaste. I like it but it would probably be a little better iced. Or with a slice of lemon.

drank Bananas Foster by 52teas

It’s definitely dessert like and sweet. The main flavors are cream and cinnamon. The banana comes in the aftertaste and kind of lingers. It could use a little more banana flavor and a bit less cinnamon but it’s still delicious :]

I got the sampler for Christmas and still haven’t tried all of them. Martha was picked randomly and I’m happy I picked this tea! Mmmm I know the flavors are caramel, sesame, and the assam melody but the combination of caramel and sesame somehow create maple and chestnut flavors. The flavor is wonderful and makes for a great breakfast tea.

This is a nice oolong. And I really like the tin it came in. It has nice flavor. It’s earthy with mineral notes. To be honest… It tastes like a rock. In a good way of course.

drank Mandarin Green by Adagio Teas

This tea is pretty simple but has nice flavor. The orange flavors are light but crisp and present. I love that I can still catch the green base. This would be a tea that I ordered in the bags to take with me on the go. Kind of a nice pick me up tea.

Someone sent me this in a swap! Thank you to whoever sent me this! I was very hesitant to try this tea becuase you know… Hibiscus.. But I took my chances and brewed it. I cut my time down 30 seconds because you know… Hibiscus.. First sip.. whoa… that kind of tastes like sugar… second sip… not tart…? Third sip.. it tastes like Smarties!!!!! It’s fruity and sweet. The flavor makes the mouth feel powdery. Like you just poured Pixie Stix in your mouth. I was super surprised by this tea. Omnomnom!

Thank you to Darby for sharing a bit of this with me! I opened my little sample pouch and went “mmmmmmm”. The dry leaf is also beautiful. The aroma is kind of fruity with light notes of chai. Cherry is very present in this blend and blends very well with the earthy pu erh. There is light cinnamon\clove notes . The vanilla is in the aftertaste and smooths things over. I really liked this blend. Very unique and tasty. Thanks again Darby!

Slowly finishing off my sample of this. I really like it. The chocolate notes are heavenly and blend well with coconut and almond :]

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
