1614 Tasting Notes


This is a lovely blend. I received this sample a while ago so I think it is not as strong of a flavor as it is originally meant to be. This is a nice black tea blend that does well without additives. It has a certain warmth to it as well as a slight fruity and sweet backdrop. Good tea with some mild astringency.

So I bought a box of this tea since I had only tried one teabag in the past. I actually really like this tea. It brews nicely and doesn’t get bitter. My husband particularly likes this tea. It doesn’t taste like lipton’s cardboard. It tastes somewhat different.


This one just makes me smile when it pops up…discovered it recently and its just a lovely plebian comfort tea.

Ever since I gave birth to my baby girl (6 months ago!), my love for tea has been on the decline. I haven’t had time to truly enjoy making and sipping tea. On top of that, my husband and I moved to my parents’ house. They have a keurig. I had succumbed to it! Recently, I have been getting into tea again.

Anyway, today I decided to try this sample. It pains me to have so much tea sitting around! This one smells faintly of sweet syrup. There was one piece of cinnamon and popcorn in this. I was very excited about that. Upon brewing, the cinnamon wasn’t very overpowering. In fact, it was well-blended. This tea didn’t need any additives at all. It was naturally sweet. The black tea base wasn’t overpowering either. Good tea blend overall. Next time I will try to brew this for longer and add milk to see if it changes the flavor at all.


I didn’t realize you had a baby – congratulations!


Thank you Amy oh ! :)


Maybe the problem is partially practical. Hot tea and a baby…dangerous! Try cold brewing loose tea. The hydration is good and tea can be calming.

Finished my sample of this tea bag. Meh. ’nuff said.

I received a generous sample from Yssah! Thank you so much. This tea has some rice and popcorn mixed in with the spiky, green leaves, which look like sencha. Delicious blend. It is roasted with vegetal flavors to it that are not too prominent. This is flavorable, however. Good blend.

I finished my little sample that I got from TTB! Delicious tea. I love the deep orange flavors and the spicy cloves. I had to put this tea in a disposable teabag since there were a lot of fine black tea leaves (crushed?). The cloves were blended well and were not overpowering. This is a good black tea that tastes good without additives.

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
