I’m continuing my matcha journey with White Chocolate Matcha! And you can find it here:

Mm this matcha smells pretty good! It smells like melted white chocolate. Like I left a candy bar in my hot car and it melted in the wrapper. Lately I’ve been taking my matcha to work in my tumbler so it was really nice to have a big, frothy bowl sitting in front of me.
This is a really creamy matcha. But for some reason I’m not really getting the white chocolate flavor. It tastes like a matcha cupcake with a smooth frosting. I really like the semi-sweetness of the white chocolate along with the sweetness of the matcha. Usually, to me, the matcha has a slight bitter aftertaste (not a bad thing). I feel like the white chocolate just kind of smooths that out. I really like how this is working out! It’s nice and delicate. But next time I think I might go for the “distinctive” flavor option instead of the “delicate” and see how much of a difference it makes.. I would recommend this to anyone just starting out with matcha! It keeps the matcha flavor and smooths out the slight bitterness. I’ll leave you the link again:

drank Gingerbread by Adagio Teas
799 tasting notes

I feel like all of the holiday teas I got were a bad batch :\ I’m having an epic sip-down today and decided to try and finish the holiday teas. I remembered that this one would have a VERY bitter aftertaste so I added a bit of sugar.. It actually helped round the bitterness and bring out the sweet gingerbread taste. Now it’s a bit better. It’s a little spicy but mostly sweet. Now it just tastes like gingerbread with icing :]

Thanks to Sare (not By Bo lol) for this sample! MMMM it’s so good. I can taste hints of cherry and cream or almond. It’s very sweet and you can still taste a little green tea. This is very delicious! Thanks again Sare!!

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA
799 tasting notes

Thanks SARE for the fantastic mystery swap!
This tea is fun. I can certainly see why it’s called Swampwater. But it’s very tasty! I love the little sprinkles in it! It’s fruity and sweet. You can still taste the rooibos under the sweet fruitiness. Someone had mentioned that it would make a great Halloween tea and I agree 100%! Now I want to order it and make cute little Halloween gifts for my tea-loving friends. It’s awesome :]
Thanks again!!

This went nicely with my lunch today :] Rosemary turkey, rosemary wasa crackers, and orange tomato soup! This is a strong black tea where the ginger REALLY shines. There is a little bit of lemon, but it sits mostly behind the ginger. It’s spicy but has a sweet, fruity ending. I liked it :]

This was a good one to start off with today. It’s light and has a delicious(but light) grape flavor.

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
799 tasting notes

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
799 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.

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 :]
