850 Tasting Notes

I really tried to wait until the tea tasting but this one was just calling my name! The aroma is very different from what I expected. It’s very warm and fruity.. It almost reminds me of a pie.. I can even smell the warm crust.
The flavor of this oolong is very light. I can taste the cranberry and apple but they aren’t as tart as I would have expected them to be. There are some floral notes but, they are super light. I enjoyed this tea! It’s perfect when you’re in the mood for a lighter oolong :] Thank you!

drank Wedding Chai Tea by Chado
850 tasting notes

Thanks for the sample IrishBreakfastLass! This one smells very rich in the bag. I wasn’t sure if I was feeling a chai this morning but this is definitely wonderful. The weather is windy, knocking walnuts off the tree onto the roof scaring the heck out of my cat. It’s cold and cloudy too :/ But I feel that this tea fits.
Anyways… This is a very light chai. I like that I can taste the black tea base through the chai. Or is it I can taste the chai through the black tea? The vanilla is very light as well. This was perfect for the first morning cup! Light and soft :] Thanks again!

drank Lemon Mango by Tea & Bloom

Thanks, Jes for sending this my way! This has a really nice flavor to it :) its sweet and juicy. The lemon is just right, not too tart and not too light. The mango kind of rounds the edge of tartness from the lemon and hibiscus. The flavors blend so nicely. Thanks again!

So when I decided to get this one I was worried about it being waaaaay too tart. It smells delicious. I’m pretty certain I added way too much water. I just kind of guessed with my new little matcha bowl. I’m not really getting any cranberry flavor. Just a watered down smartie taste. It’s still yummy, but I’ll have to try it again and pay attention to my water. Until next time… I still give it a good rating :)

Smartie taste? That’s not a good sign. I’d like tart since that’s what I expect from cranberries.

KallieBoo!

Mine was VERY watered down. I’m gonna try it with less water tomorrow.

drank Butterbeer by 52teas

I received this one in a random sample swap from Ze_Teamaker! So thank you :D It smells so good! I didn’t really know what to expect flavor wise from this tea. It reminds me of a chinese soda(kind of like rootbeer but A LOT different) I get from the Southeast Market with a scoop of ice cream or vanilla in it. MM :] I’m happy I got to try this one! Thank you again Ze_Teamaker!

Thanks IrishBreakfastLass! Mm this smells so good! It made my entire kitchen smell like cinnamon. It’s strongest flavor is cinnamon(maybe a bit too much for my liking) but I can get hints of apple, vanilla, and orange. Mm :] Thanks again!

I’m glad you liked this one. I wasn’t getting much flavor at all, which made me really sad since it smelled so darn good! lol

I received a couple samples of this one from IrishBreakfastLass in our random sample swap :] The aroma of this tea is deep with dark chocolate notes. Mm the flavor is very toasty and smooth with a creamy dark chocolate aftertaste. Hints of toffee and mocha are hanging out here too. Thanks again!

I received this one in a random sample swap with Jes! So thank you :] Well I messed it up by adding too much water. Oops :/ But it smells like warm pumpkin pie! And I love the little pumpkin candies :D The flavor is slightly spicy with notes of pumpkin. The spice certainly does have a little bit of a bite to it! MM.. One of the better pumpkin teas I’ve had this fall :] A nice start for this morning! 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 :]
