807 Tasting Notes

I received a sample of this tea from Yogi. For some reason I was thinking it was herbal. But then took a sip and tasted a little more then herbs! I also should never underestimate Yogi’s tea. I always think of it as “just another flavor lacking bagged tea.” But no. The first sip was like “BAM!! MINTY. SPICY. SWEET. UNEXPLAINABLE FLAVORS!” all up in my face (in a good way of course :D). But really this is an amazing tea. So.. sweet, minty, and spicy. I never would have thought these flavors would be working together so well. Well.. Yogi got me again.. Now I have to go and buy more..

Thank you to Amanda for sending me this sample! I finally have some time to myself to catch up on the samples people have sent me.
This tea smells wonderful! Hmm. Maybe I used too little tea to the amount of water? Or temperature.. but anyways it was a bit weak but it was still pretty tasty! It reminds me of a tea from The Tea Grotto. It has a light fruity flavor but you can still taste the green tea base. I really like it. I like the mellowness of it.

Glad you like it! It can be a bit picky but when you get it right it’s awesome.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for this sample :]
When I opened the bag it smelled tart like cranberries! In a good way of course. It made my mouth water. It’s not tart like I thought it would be, it’s actually mellow and sweet. I can taste the rooibos working with the berry flavor. It’s pretty good though. After the few first sips I added a pinch of sugar and I feel like it brought the berry flavor out a bit more.

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

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 :]
