So after my cola matcha experience I had to go for another interesting flavor. Bubblegum matcha! Here is the link:

Anyways.. When I got it out of the mail box I was off to start my errands. I stopped at my dads and decided to open it there. OH MY GOODNESS. The smell of bubblegum filled the air! It smelled SO good even the dog tried to steal it away. My dad even said it smelled good and for some reason he will have absolutely nothing to do with tea. So you know it’s THAT good.

This morning I actually got a chance to make some. Seriously the water couldn’t heat up fast enough.. This matcha tastes exactly like bubblegum. No weird flavors going on here. It’s sweet and I feel like it works well with the matcha’s natural sweetness. After the first few sips I let the rest of it cool so I could try it at a lower temperature. It would be even better iced! At the cooler temperature it brought out the bubblegum a little bit more. It was nice :]
If you are feeling adventurous or in the need of something sweet I would recommend this matcha. This one is probably my new favorite and just might become the “must have” in my matcha collection :]

So here is the link for you one more time:

I don’t know why I didn’t review this the first time I drank this. But this is good :) I got this as a sample but it lasted a while! To me the flavor is a bit weak but it’s still enjoyable. Kind of earthy and sweet. Glad I got to try it but I think I will stick to my other company :)

I was cautions when I bought this tea. Cherry teas can either love me or hate me. This one… Slightly dislikes me. I want to say it’s kind of a fake cherry taste, like cough syrup… But in a strange way I kind of like it. It’s mellow though. There is a hint of rose.. but maybe it’s not my favorite… Mm no.. maybe play around with the steeping times?

Mmm this tea is delicious! I’ve only had one other companies dragon pearls, but these are probably my favorite. They have so much flavor to them! They are sweet, malty, and with a slight hint of dark chocolate. Mmmm my new favorite black tea. :D

I got this tea in a sample pack. Today I thought I’d give one a try. The color of the tea turns kind of a murky green, which made me nervous about the taste. But it’s actually really good! The orange flavor is not fake at all. I feel like someone squeezed a slice into my cup. It’s sweet but also a little bitter. It has a very, very light floral note to it, but it’s still hard to notice. I was actually impressed by this tea :)

Thank you to Amanda for sending me a sample of this tea! You can definitely smell the grape when you open the package. The taste is more of a candy/bubblegum grape. But it’s not strong at all, it’s more of a mellow grape flavor that kind of hangs out in the background. I really like it :) and I’m happy I got the chance to try it! Thank you again, Amanda!

Thank you to The Tea Merchant for this generous and delicious sample! When I smelled this tea for some reason I thought it was going to be tart. But it is actually quite mellow. The first sip I was wondering where the fruit was, but as it cools the apricot/pear taste shines! It reminds me of apricot jam. It makes such a lovely cup too with a peachy, pinkish color. It is just as delicious cold too :) I’m happy I got to try this! I will definitely be ordering more (Plus I LOVED the packaging. I felt bad opening it..).

Preparation

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 :]
