180 tasting notes

Broke my rule about having caffeinated tea after lunch on this one. I had to get the taste of a failed tisane experiment out of my mouth, and I knew that the heavier, malty taste of Love Tea #7 would do the trick.

When I first tasted this tea, I was in the midst of a chocolate tea phase. In comparison to some of the others I was enjoying at the time (Chocolate Orange, Red Velvet Cake, Read my Lips…) this one didn’t really stand out as super desserty. But now that I seem to be on a bit more of a light, fruity flavored kick, I can appreciate the richness that this blend has to offer.

Still think that a stronger strawberry flavor would be an improvement, though, so I’m leaving my rating as is. It’s just interesting how you notice different flavors at different times.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
