865 Tasting Notes


I’m still kind of shocked that no one else has done a tasting note for this one. It’s really good! It’s very smooth and sweet. It reminds me of a caramel and chocolate brownie. Mmmmm :]

This one is finally gone! I’ve had it for so long and it’s gone! That’s ok. I need to finish more teas. I’ve always enjoyed this one. When brewed correctly it has a nice creamy vanilla flavor to it. It’ll be missed but probably not reordered anytime soon.

drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas

I don’t think I’ve ever logged this one but tonight I just want something… different.. I will admit that I hate the aroma of the dry leaf. It smells like vinegar. Very off putting.. But good news is that the vinegar aroma disappears after it’s brewed. The flavor is nice. The cucumber is very natural tasting and it blends well with the sweetness of the white tea. There is a nice vegetal note. It’s quite relaxing, actually.

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 :]


I remember now I have this one untasted in my sample box ! should try it soon


It’s delicious!

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 :]
