687 Tasting Notes

drank Gingerbread Smoke by 52teas
687 tasting notes

Ehhhhh. This one is really not doing it for me. It really isn’t even that smokey for a Lapsang base, and the ginger is somewhat artificial tasting. Glad I got it in a swap and didn’t purchase a 2oz package!

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to try this one BrewTEAlly Sweet!

I know I wish I could have sampled it before I bought it :/

I’ve been drinking SO much tea today because I woke up with a sore throat. I had a cup of this, several cups of my “wellness blend” from a local shop with echinacea, licorice root, chamomile and mint, and a cup of banana dream pie. Not going to review anything till my palette is accurate again. Meh. What a waste of a gorgeous day outside AND a day off work feeling crummy :/

MMmm, this is a nice comforting cup on a rainy afternoon. Mild black tea with berry and vanilla flavoring. I’m drinking it sweetened, and am getting just a tiny bit of pleasant tartness from the raspberry. Very tasty, but I’m not getting any “cake” flavor from it. Smells WONDERFUL.

Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet!

This alright, but dark oolongs are still not my favorite. My favorite dark oolong is that Royal Phoenix Dancong! Trying different things to coax more flavor out of it. Maybe I’m just doing it wrong!

Ahhh. This is just what I needed this afternoon. Super rich, dark, and spicy! It tastes like unsweetened Mexican chocolate, with a touch of earthy pu-erh and citrus peel. Sweetened this would be an AMAZING dessert or latte tea! Another winner from my box of goodies from BrewTEAlly Sweet :D One of the best I’ve had from Della Terra actually!!!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Yay I’m glad you really enjoyed this one over the other chai!

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

Mmmm! Creamy limey goodness! So smooth! I’m fairly impressed with this David’s blend. If I ever end up buying some I’ll probably mix it with some additional sencha, as its light on the actual sencha. I am drinking it hot but I’ll probably try the rest of my sample over ice.

Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet! :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Its sooooo good over I’ve ice with fresh lime wedges! Let me know which one you like better. This one or the della terra lime chiffon?

Stephanie

I can guarantee this one, what with the no chance of me tasting any rooibos at all, though they are quite similar!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Yay! :D I’m so glad ur enjoying my swap!

I got this in a swap with T.C. WAY earlier this year! It has just been hanging out in my fridge…I never tried it because upon sniffing it I could tell it was SPEARMINT matcha. I’m really picky about mint at times and generally strongly prefer peppermint! I decided to taste it this morning to make sure it is fresh before I pass it along to another Steepster in a swap! I prepared it as a hot latte with honey, and it is indeed fresh, and better than I expected! I suspect it would be AMAZING mixed with some HOT CHOCOLATE! :D

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Oh man! Making my mouth water!

Stephanie

Good! ;)

I was really distracted and busy at work when I drank this. I remember I liked it and wished I had steeped it a little stronger. Good coconut flavor. I’ll have to write a more detailed note next time I drink :)

Thanks BrewTEAlly Sweet

BrewTEAlly Sweet

You should definitely do this one as a latte:):)

Stephanie

I’m on it ;)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

drank Redberry Tonic by DAVIDsTEA

Another sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet!

I hot steeped this before work but then slapped it in the fridge with some sugar and ice to drink later chilled. It is very drinkable, but reminds me of fruit punch or Kool aid, HA! :)

Hmm, I was really excited to try this one. It SOUNDS like it would be something totally up my alley. I LOVE raspberry (I just ate a raspberry chocolate Chobani bite for breakfast with this tea.) AND ginger. There was a big fat tasty looking green cardamom pod in with the dry leaf too (YUM! I love cardamom) And the dry leaf smells really good. However, steeped up, it is somewhat artificial tasting. It isn’t so terrible that I am tempted to dump it out, BUT I’m glad it was a swap sample and not a purchase.

Thanks again BrewTEAlly Sweet!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I have yet to try it….now im hesitant:/

Stephanie

Awww, I drank it before you? We do have different tastes sometimes!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

true, but you usually do well with the gingers and peppercorns and what not. Ill have to sit down tomorrow and this weekend and sip a LOT!

Stephanie

I wasn’t gingery enough for me! I wanted MORE!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

HA HA then maybe it has a chance with me:)
