67 Tasting Notes

I think this probably tastes AWESOME as a hot tea (and I should probably try the green tea version, because I can picture that being pretty good as well), but I didn’t think this worked as an iced tea. The strawberry flavor was great, but to me, it tasted like strawberry milk or strawberry whipped cream, and although I drank it, I just think that it wasn’t what I was looking for.

Been drinking this for 2 days as I recover from wisdom teeth extraction yesterday. No hot tea allowed, but I’ve been sucking down the gallon I made of this, and boy, is it good! I don’t like juice, and I just can’t manage to drink a lot of water, but this stuff has really been great to stay hydrated with!

Ah, yes…my favorite and fall back tea. I stayed up WAAAY too late last night watching the eclipse, and I need something that I know I like for this morning.

I don’t understand what I’m tasting, and it still always tastes somewhat cherry vanilla to me, but I love it. I am very, very tired right now. :)

Another tea from Awkward Soul. This tea tastes a lot like 52Teas’ Walter Bishop Honeybush to me. I’m getting a very milkshake-y type taste, although this is definitely not as sweet and bright. I’m getting strawberry milkshake, but a rich one (the pu’er?).

I like this one…it is intriguing, and just has different levels. I get the milkshake/malt/cream at the aftertaste.

I also used more leaf, since I didn’t have enough for 2 servings from the sample.

Another in a swap from Awkward Soul. This tea doesn’t have a WOW! factor, but is a good stable tea. I can taste the base (with a little astringency), and the toffee/caramel flavor. It tasted better when it was hot. As it is cooling, the toffee/caramel/nut flavor is on the back of the sip (instead of more on the front).

Drinking this from a swap with AwkwardSoul. I really like this tea! It is delicate tasting, and the peach flavor is NOT overpowering. I read the review on this tea as I was drinking it, and it does taste like a white peach, not like a regular peach. The tea base is just right…a black tea would not have done this tea justice.

Fruity and a bit floral…this tea is a very good start-to-the-week tea.

I don’t know the last time I had iced tea, but I guarantee you it was from a mix and not real tea.

I’m getting my wisdom teeth out on Wednesday, and stocking up on really soft foods. I read that neither hot stuff (like hot tea) nor soda isn’t going to go over well, so I decided to make a pitcher of one of the iced teas to have on hand for when I want something to drink! I decided to make a pitcher of the Razzleberry.

I steeped the large teabag twice, and added enough water/ice to make a gallon of iced tea. I thought this was pretty good tea, and will definitely be refreshing as I recuperate. I have another pouch (I got pouches of iced tea as part of the Kickstarter campaign) of Razzleberry, but I’ll be wanting to try one of the other ones first! I’d buy this again.

First tea to try in a swap box I just got. At first, I really tasted the berry flavor! Wow…that must be what an elderberry tastes like! At the back is a chocolate flavor…I’d have to say a weak dark chocolate.

As I keep drinking it, the berry flavor is subsiding. I’m not sure I’m tasting any tea base. It’s not a bad tea, but not sure I’d buy it over and over, either.

drank Sakura Black by Souvia
67 tasting notes

This is one of the first teas that I’m having in a long time that doesn’t have flavoring. I want to try more teas that have not a chemical flavor (either natural or artificial), but just tea and something (if that makes sense).

This Sakura Black was at the tea shop when I went last week. They’re only selling it by the ounce, and pre-packaged. It smells really good in the package…definitely a different type of cherry-smell coming out of the package. So, I forked over the $8.99 for it (which was definitely expensive!).

The tea is a light brown color. I carefully added the liquid stevia, and I’m pretty sure I added less than I usually do. I don’t really care for tea straight, and always sweeten it. I figure I should ENJOY what I’m drinking, eh? There is a very subtle cherry flavor. The tea base is not too strong and is not bitter at all. I really only get the subtle cherry in the aftertaste.

I feel like the exquisiteness of it might be lost on me, but I’m enjoying what I’m drinking, and will have to re-steep soon. Also, keep in mind that I’m at work, and have to use the hot water that they provide. Although it comes from the same machine as the coffee makers, it doesn’t share the same spout, so it never tastes like coffee, but I’m sure it’s not at boiling (although it is fairly hot, even with the coffee sleeve on the cup).

I’m looking forward to re-steeping…maybe more of the cherry will come out?

More of the cherry did come out as it cooled, and in the second steeping.

Not tasting the chili this morning, but liking the chocolate. I bet the second steeping will be different. I might have understeeped it too, at 3:45. Still amazed that the steeping time has so much to do with the flavor!
