832 Tasting Notes

Thank you Angel and Teavivre for a sample of this! Mmmm I was craving a rich black tea and I hope found my winner! I opened the package and a rich cocoa aroma spilled out. The leaves are beautiful, too. Mmm the flavor isn’t as rich as I was hoping but it’s still very enjoyable. This tea has light cocoa\caramel notes but there is something vegetal to it. Like sweet potato.. or raw string bean. There is a touch of malt, too. I really enjoy this tea. It’s nice and comforting.

Another from the Traveling Teabox B. I couldn’t help but smell this one and fall in love. Mmm it smells so creamy and sweet. Mm the flavor is creamy with lovely hints of caramel. It’s nice but there is nothing that makes me go wow.

drank Ginseng Berry by ESP Emporium

Decided to try this one out of the Traveling Teabox B. Hmm… I can’t decide if the flavor is good or not… My boyfriend said it tastes like breakfast. Like eggs and hollandaise sauce.. It does have an odd taste to it… It’s sweet from the berries but I don’t think the ginseng blends well. I keep trying to like this cup but.. I just don’t think it’ll happen..

Took this one from the Traveling Teabox B! It smells awesome. The dry leaf has a nice buttery but slightly floral aroma. Mmm I love buttery oolong aromas. Mm this oolong is awesome. It has rich buttery notes with a light floral aftertaste. It’s sweet and has a slight woody-ness to it. Mmm I will enjoy every sip of this one!

Guys… I just slept for 13 hours :\ Not what I planned at all. But I decided to sample this from the Traveling Teabox B. I didn’t really know what it was so I just brewed it like a white tea. It turned out nice. It’s very mellow. It has a sweetness to it that reminds me of apples and peaches. The flavors are very delicate but I still like it. I feel like it’s a good fall tea because it’s smooth but crisp with light apple\peach flavor.

Enjoying this out of my gourd. The first steeps are so unbelievably strong but once you get to steep 3 or 4 it’s perfect. I wish someone was here to hang out with me so I could actually pass it around. I’ve always wanted to do that.

This one is from the Traveling Teabox B. I’ve always been curious about this one so I was happy when I saw it in the tea box. Ooo the aroma is delicious! The flavor is nice. Nice juicy tangerine flavor and a nice creamy note. I can even taste the guayusa under it all :]

Aroma is still sweet but the smokey note is starting to come out a bit more. The flavor is still sweet with a strong earthy note.

So this is the first tea I took out of the Traveling Teabox B! I’ve read so many great reviews so I had to try it. It is pretty delicious. Caramel and dark chocolate notes with a smoothness to it. There is a nice, rich buttery note to it, too. The aroma reminds me of crackers :]
Ooooo the second steep is very nice! Vanilla and butter notes. sweet and rich but smooth. Mmmmm so happy I got to try this :]

Thanks TastyBrew! This one smells amazing so I was waiting to try this one until I had a moment to really enjoy it. It’s pretty nommy :) nice creamy cheesecake flavor going on. The pumpkin kind of lies in the aftertaste but I think it’s a good blend of flavors. Thank you again!

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 :]
