Man I haven’t been logging notes lately, with all the house craziness haha, it’s all getting there though, removed conditions tonight so just a bit left to do! So excited to move in!!

Anyways, this is a sad sipdown I am logging tonight. This was my favorite honeybush of the Bestsellers sampler I think, Coconut Cheesecake came close but this is just so good at all times. I almost made it in my travel mug today but I didn’t want to risk ruining the last cup. I steeped for 10 minutes tonight and it is delicious, very cakey cinnamon smelling tonight, I can smell the icing, and the flavor definitely has cream cheese icing in it, along with the breadiness of cinnamon buns and of course the cinnamon. One of the few teas I really enjoy where the main flavor is supposed to be cinnamon! A yummy one, would buy this again! See previous notes :)

ETA – 750 notes! How did that happen in a little over a year haha, lots of good teas I guess :)

Are there any accolades that are only achieved once you reach a certain amount of notes?

MissLena

Not that I know of haha, it’s mostly just surprising that I have drank that much tea, and a nice milestone on my tea journey :)

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.
