Thanks Meowkattack! This smells so good! It reminds me of warm apple sauce. The flavor is mostly a sweet/spicy cinnamon with light apple notes. It’s very tasty :)

Thanks Finn88!
I ruined it! The tasting notes for this tea was at 123 :P Anyways, if it weren’t for this swap I probably would have never tried a maple tea. Hmm this tea is very sweet. I am getting caramel and maple. Someone mentioned that it tasted like a maple bar doughnut and that’s exactly what it made me think of! I didn’t think I’d like this tea as much as I do because I’m not a huge fan of maple flavored things. But the rooibos was a really nice base for this tea. All of the flavors mix so nicely :] Thanks again!!

A huge thank you to Pekko Teas!!
The color of the liquor is a beautiful rust red. The aroma is slightly earthy with a little bit of a toasty note to it. I most certainly can catch the jam and toast notes. It’s slightly dry with a warm wheat note and a sweet ending.

Finally finishing this one up. This has a wonderful smooth flavor to it. It’s vegetal and toasty with hints of buttery flavors. Very nice :)

I received this one from a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I was so excited when I got this one because it was soaked in honey. I have never, ever seen a tea that was soaked in honey. Well I went to Teavivre’s site and read up on it. I decided to do multiple steeps with this oolong. So here it goes!
1st Steep:
212° for 1 min.
The color of the liquor reminds me of watered down honey. The smell is light, sweet, and with a hint of fresh veggies. The flavor is kind of floral and sweet. I can get a slight hint of honey in the background.
2nd Steep:
212° for 2 min.
The color has gotten much, much brighter. Almost to a yellowish-green. The smell is very vegetal. The flavor has gotten a little more deep into the oolong with hints of vegetal and savory flavors.
3rd Steep:
212° for 3 min.
The liquor has turned to a light brownish-yellow. The aroma has turned deep and vegetal with buttery notes. The flavor has a slight mineral taste to it along with a deep oolong flavor. There is still a slight buttery/vegetal flavor to it but it’s very light.
This is the first oolong I have tried steeping multiple times and I loved it! I think it is so amazing how the flavor changes with every steeping! Thanks again!!

drank Dragonwell by Love Teas
860 tasting notes

I received this in a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I decided I wanted to use my clear glass teapot today and I’m happy I did! The color of the liquor is beautiful, a light olive green. I don’t think I’ve ever really tried a dragonwell tea. The smell has a sweet fresh vegetable scent to it. The flavor is light and kind of reminds me of buttered peas. I haven’t enjoyed a plain green tea in some time so this was very refreshing! Thanks again!!

drank Floral Passion by Primula Tea

I totally forgot I had this! I got this in a set for Christmas last year. It came with a glass tea pot and 12 flowering teas. I love flowering teas! They are so beautiful. This was perfect for the mood I was in. I had a ton of sugar today so something light and far away from sugary-sweet seemed just right.
The red flower is very pretty. The flavor is very floral and light. It is lacking a little bit but hey, it fits for right now.

Thank you IrishBreakfastLass! I was so excited when I learned I was getting this in the swap! The ingredients made it sound so interesting. This reminds me of coffee. It’s warm and slightly sweet. I agree that it would make a fantastic coffee replacement. 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 :]
