773 Tasting Notes

Thank you Tattooed_tea! This smells so good! I was expecting a stronger flavor for this tea but it’s actually quite delicate. The fruit flavor is pretty light and let’s the rooibos shine through. It’s a nice combination and both are pretty equal. No dominate flavors going on here. I really liked this! Thanks again!

drank SBT: Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

Thanks 52teas for sending a lovely sample of this! So yeah, it was kind of chilly for an iced tea… But Rainbow Sherbet? I’d drink it in a blizzard, it’s that good. The flavors are so tangy. I’m getting more lime than anything. But I’m not complaining :] This is the best iced tea I’ve had in a loooong time. I will definitely be ordering more!!

Thanks Tattooed_tea!
I love the little marshmallows in the tea. Except I ate them halfway through steeping the tea D: I’ve heard good things and bad things about this tea so I’m excited to try it… ok here goes first sip..
Hmm… Definitely different. I’m getting a little bit of the graham cracker, a tiny bit of chocolate and nothing really of the marshmallow (most likely because I ate them..). I’m getting a lot of hazelnut and other nutty flavors. Meh, it’s more of a chocolate/hazelnut tea to me.

drank Neapolitan Honeybush by 52teas
773 tasting notes

I saw this when I was placing an order and HAD to have it. It’s so delicious. I wasn’t expecting it to be this creamy. It tastes like warm neapolitan ice cream. As it cools the flavors come out a bit more. Mm and I LOVE that I can pick out the different flavors. Everything blends so well together with the honeybush.

This one has been ignored for a while so I thought it should get some attention. As soon as I opened the tin I was greeted by a coco/dark chocolate smell. I love watching this tea steep. The little balls are fun to watch open up.
The taste of this tea is still amazing :] Bold black tea with hints of dark chocolate. I knew I picked the right tea to start my day off :D

I forgot I had this one! It’s pretty great when you find a new tea in your stash. Anyways, this is an interesting tea. When I first poured it I thought it had a beautiful color! Kind of a pinkish then turns into a light brown. The flavor is very crisp. It’s very sweet, too. There is an undertone that reminds me of chamomile. It’s very subtle but it’s delicious! I’m getting a little bit of a bitter, dry aftertaste but it kind of adds to the flavor.

I have to admit.. I only bought this for the tin but the tea is actually pretty tasty! It’s smooth with apple and rooibos flavors. There’s even a hint of chamomile. The aftertaste is very smooth with hints of vanilla and caramel. mmm.. :]

I bought this one for the tin too… It’s cute :] This one is actually pretty strong in the spice and pumpkin flavors. VERY delicious blended with the rooibos. It’s creamy and smooth.

drank Bossa Nova by Zen Tea

A big thank you to Zen Tea!
I completely forgot I had this tea until I looked in my sample drawer. And I’m happy I did because it’s pretty dang good! This is a very delicious oolong. Definitely the first hazelnut/vanilla oolong I’ve had. It’s unique but I really like it. It’s a slightly buttery flavored tea and kind of creamy. The hazelnut fits nicely with the nuttiness of the oolong. You can taste the vanilla but it mostly rounds the edges of the nut flavor. MM this one is really delicious! If you like oolong teas then this one is a must try for you :]

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 :]
