850 Tasting Notes

Thanks Ze_Teamaker! I’m having a serious laundry day and I saw the word ‘chocolate’, So I thought eh, why not? The smell of this lovely brew is very minty and herbal. That is exactly the flavor too. Except as it cools I’m getting more and more little hints of the dark chocolate. I really can’t decide if I like this or not. It’s got so much going on with it. I just can’t decide if I like the chamomile and chocolate together…. Hmmm….

Thanks Finn88! I LOVE the flavor of this tea. I’m getting coffee, almonds, and a little sweetness from the chocolate. These flavors blend so well together and it’s not overpowering. The flavors are light but there enough there to have a nice cup :] Thanks again!

When I saw that this tea had pine needles in it, it gained my interest. I did think that this was going to have a stronger pine needle taste to it but it’s actually quite mellow. The flavor is kind of buttery and has a crisp, outdoors thing going on. This tea reminds me of sitting in my tent waiting for the rain to stop then going outside into the crisp, cool, fresh air.

Well, I’m finally finishing this off. I’m getting hints of vanilla, caramel, frosting-like flavors. I added a bit of sugar to make it seem more… cakey.. It kind of worked.

Thanks Jes for sending me this sample! This chai smells sweeter than other chai teas. Well I over steeped it so I added a bit of honey to smooth over the bitterness. It’s spicy but it’s very light. But overall I think I ruined it D: It’s still enjoyable, it’s just more sweet from the honey than the spiciness I wanted.

S’mores pop tarts … Those people are evil, I tell ya. I hadn’t been tempted by pop tarts in years. Then along came s’mores and chocolate chip cookie dough …

Lol I hear ya! When I was in 9th grade my mom sent me to China and I survived off of the chocolate chip cookies dough pop tarts for two weeks.

No tasting notes for this? Really? This tea smells so good. It’s bursting with citrus and vanilla. The flavors are light but enjoyable. They’re pretty equal, too. The citrus doesn’t overpower the vanilla and both blend so well with the green base.

I keep wanting to brew up the sample you sent me, but then I want to save it, so it hasn’t been brewed yet. Still waiting. :D

Mmmm :) not much to say about it. It’s the classic blend of green tea and mint. I’ve been craving it for some time now so I’m happy my order arrived quickly! Very refreshing! :)

The description was right! This does brew up very dark. I thought it would be a little bit stronger but it’s just right! It’s very smooth and earthy with hints of something I just can’t put my finger on. It has a sweeter finish as it begins to cool.
This tea makes me think of horses. Like, horseback riding or hanging out in the stables. If I were to go horseback riding I would definitely take a tumbler full of this wonderful pu-erh. It just fits :]

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 :]
