1199 Tasting Notes

Oh I love this. Thank you so much for the sample of it, KeenTeaThyme.

I didn’t like Adagio’s blood orange on its own, but this makes it a million times better. The problem with it by itself is it’s too sour and flat, this blend is perfect. It brings out the orange, and you can taste both the sweet and the tart.

It’s good hot or cold. I can’t decide which I like better (tastewise at least, I can tell you my hands wish it were hot again right now). When I am not overly supplied on tea I am buying some of this.

YAY! Glad it arrived unscathed…and happy to hear you enjoy it. :)

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1199 tasting notes

I probably should have bought a tin of Marco Polo when I was in Paris. But really I was too overwhelmed and I like vanilla. This is a good enough substitute until next time…hahaha.

I first had this tea at a teahouse where a friend and I had afternoon tea. I really liked it and and I kept thinking about it. It’s been well over a year and I realized from someone else’s tasting note that this was the tea. So I had to order some.

It’s so good. It tastes like strawberries, a bit of lemon, a hint of bergamot. It’s not like a fruity Earl Grey at all, like it kind of leads you to believe. Just creamy enough, maybe I will give it a spin with milk and some vanilla sugar…ooh wait I bought some strawberry sugar in Paris…that could be awesome.

I always say I don’t like jasmine but then I drink pearls like this, so nobody can believe me. It isn’t my favorite tea, but it’s nice to have as a sort of wind down for the day.

I’ve only had one other kind, and I can already say that I like this one from Teavivre a lot better. It’s a lot smoother. The green tea base is easy to distinguish, and the floral flavor of jasmine is not artificial tasting or overpowering.

I don’t feel like I just heated up a flower in water and started drinking it. I’m going to steep them again since they didn’t even all unfurl and see how that cup tastes.

It is better than most jasmine teas i’ve tried…

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
1199 tasting notes

This is AMAZING. It smells just like chocolate oranges. It even tastes like it too!

I wasn’t sure about this at first because I am a bit put off by pu-erh but I can’t even taste much of it at all. I steeped it for 3 minutes, and the package says 4-6. Or I might actually like it, but I’m pretty sure it’s covered by the awesome flavors. I am definitely getting a lot of orange mixed with chocolate. It seriously even tastes like those chocolate oranges.

I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to want one now. But it’s for research purposes, of course.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
1199 tasting notes

I love Canada. I mean my favorite hockey team is the Canadiens. When I tell people I like hockey and Formula 1 they think I am Canadian (although really that always seemed more Finnish to me? And it was only after I said F1 that the Canadian question came up, surprisingly.) So when I first found out about this tea I knew I had to get some. I decided to blow all my birthday money on a big order and it came today and I immediately had to make Oh Canada right out of the box.

Let’s see, how many ways could this become my favorite tea (and make me start saying favourite)? I love rooibos, I love sprinkles, I love maple syrup, I love caramel.

And yes, I do love this. It’s sweet, but not cloying. It’s not something I would drink everyday and definitely not something I will drink at 5:30pm again anytime soon.

It tastes like maple syrup more than anything. I get a bit of caramel, but most of all I get a need to take another sip each time I stop. This tea and I are going to get along very well.

drank Cinnamon Roll Honeybush by 52teas
1199 tasting notes

Who even needs real cinnamon rolls? Oh man. When I first smelled this tea, I was like, “I want an IKEA cinnamon roll.” (to which my boyfriend responded, “the difference between you and me is that I wake up every day wanting one.”)

This is just perfect. It’s not too spicy, it’s not too sweet. It’s just right, and it tastes like a cinnamon roll without all the eating. And in the case of IKEA cinnamon rolls, not having to go there.

I wish I could get cinnamon-addicted boyfriend to try it but I’m sure he’ll tell me it smells like fake cinnamon. Of course he also thinks anytime someone tries to get him to drink tea, they’re trying to convert him away from coffee. But I am pretty sure he’d like this…but it’s fine, I don’t have to share then!

this is one of my favorite herbal teas!

Again, this is a tea where I just want to smell the dry leaf all day long. Ohhhhmygod.

I love this combination of flavors. I taste everything, starting with toasty green tea and then coconut, all the way to the creamy banana flavor that lingers after each sip. This is so good.

Yum!

drank Milk Oolong by thepuriTea
1199 tasting notes

I thought maybe the milk oolong I got last week was this one. It is not. So now I have two different milk oolongs and that is really not a problem.

This one is a lot greener than the other I have. It’s a bit more subtle, but still creamy. I think I prefer the other one, but this is still amazing.
