197 Tasting Notes


My 1st review from my Lupicia Happy Bag! grins

I had trouble finding a pair of scissors to open this bag, so used a knife…Gah. That was a pain in the ass.

Even though I was distracted by removing the last little part of the bag, I still smelled the highly intense peachy smell. I wanted to have this today because I wanted to forget for the moment that there is a bunch of snow on the ground…Sad Face

I like the taste, but it reminds me alot of Peachy Keen a white tea that I used to get at a local tea store. Considering that, not sure I’m keen on ordering this tea.

I might save the rest of this for the summer for iced tea.

Flavors: Peach

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
197 tasting notes

3rd and last tea review of the night…though it’s tempting to have one of the herbals I got…

Pfft. Ok, out of the 3 I’ve tried tonight, this one I think I definitely will get again…maybe even alot of…

There are a few different flavors of this tea, yet they manage to meld together nicely. The popcorn fluffyness of course, with the coconut and pineapple. Now both coconut and pineapple have the reputation for overtaking flavor of stuff, so imagine my surprise to find that was not the case with ‘Movie Night’

The only thing is…I pulled it a bit to quick, and I should have let it set for like another minute or so. I think I will try that next time.

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA

At 1st, 2nd and even 3rd sip, I was not crazy about this tea. But I kept sipping and it kind of grew on me. I definitely got why many people said that they did not like this tea. It got alittle better after cooling off, so people who read this and don’t care for it, hot, try it iced down…maybe that will improve the taste a bit.

Jury’s out on whether I will get more though.

OMG…It’s been almost a year since my last review!

How did that happen?!

Anywho…I got some interesting new teas from Davids Tea, Of course not all the ones I wanted…I just couldn’t justify spending like $300 on 1 tea buy, not with wanting to make a buy at both Quarter to Tea and FusionTeas. But…I might be inclined to make another Davids tea buy for my birthday in March;)

OK…on to this tea:

I’ve tried quite a few teas in general these last few years….not many of them have lived up to their name. This one kind of does…I like it, and I will enjoy drinking the rest…but I don’t see myself buying another bag. I still feel like a tea has to really WOW! me in order to justify the prices…though did buy enough to qualify for the free shipping and plan on doing that in the future as well. It’s been a while since I’ve had it, but the taste reminds me alittle bit of Glitter and Gold, which I loved when I 1st had it, but for some reason turned unappealing.

Neutral on whether or not I would recommend this tea.

Could this tea be more temp sensitive then what the label indicated?

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
197 tasting notes

Didn’t care for this cup, but since I tried it a few days ago I do not remember what my impressions were about it. It is one I’d be inclined to get another sample or 2…I mean afterall, I may have brewed it wrong. Honestly, I have not overly liked any of the recent samples from Verdant, so far.

Still got more for another cup so will do another review in a few days. I would love to do it today, but due to needing to get up early tomorrow, I can’t have caffeine for the rest of the day. If I manage to get my sorry butt out of bed early enough, I might have time in the morning. LOL.

I didn’t like this one when I brewed it either but when I had it there at a tasting it was wonderful!

Not really sure about what I think of this tea…I had actually wanted to try Laoshan Black 1st and then this, but I had completely forgot about that when I decided that I wanted tea when I got home tonight, along with also forgetting that it has a black tea base instead of green…so I’ll likely be for a long while…or not, I didn’t get much sleep last night and had to get up early this morning. I think I am going to wait till I have the 2nd half of this before giving a rating.

Last thing: I didn’t taste chocolate in this, well maybe a bit of bitterness that may have been the chocolate.

I wanted to do my most recent shopping trip at a local Meijer’s, namely to see what selection they had of Vitamin waters and other flavored waters that both my Mom and I have become slightly addicted to. I decided to wander down the tea/coffee isle just to see what there was to see. To my surprise and delight, I found a larger tea section then I had expected. Most was the usual stuff, bagged tea such as Bigelow, Yogi, Lipton. Then I saw bags of this tea, Tiesta. I randomly chose this one, mostly because of the word Relax on the bag. I just tried it tonight…

I like it well enough that I won’t mind finishing the bag, but I highly doubt I would get it again. It’s not a bad herbal tea…in fact I agree with the other assessments in that the taste of this bares a close resemblance to Forever Nuts by David’s Tea. So if you love that tea, but aren’t crazy about DT’s prices or shipping charges, check your local Meijer…they just might have it.

I have been drinking Nutty Almond Cream for a while. Found it pretty much the same way… shopping at Meijer’s. I think it is similar to Forever Nuts but I’ve actually begun to like it more than Forever Nuts. Maybe just because it is easier to obtain. I’ve also added it to some of my chocolate teas. It adds some nice nutty taste to other teas.

Queer, genderfluid, bookworm,various ‘alternative lifestyles and communities’ (You’ll have to ask in a message by what I mean, I don’t want to weird anyone out, though most people here seem to be fairly accepting or at least tolerant.)

Currently in my late 30’s.

Rating Guide that I use:
90-99 Good
80-89 Interesting
70-79 Not cupboard worthy (Means that while I kind of like it, not enough to keep.)
60-69 Uninspiring
50-59 Terrible

I tend to prefer flavored black, white sometimes green and oolong teas. Though I am willing to try pretty much any tea. Can’t stand most Yerba mate teas(Except for Teavana’s.)Have a mild like for Guayusa flavored teas.
