drank Sunny by More Tea
1932 tasting notes

The website recommended having this iced and so I did. The result? A tea that tastes like a fruity Popsicle. The peach is strong but complimented by a bit of orange citrus flavor. It is a bit like watered down juice (a flavor one might expect from a Popsicle). It is nice though not something I need to have around in. Any sort of quantity. Still, I could see this being pleasant in the summertime so thank you Memily for sharing

I have had 100g of this sealed and tucked away since January but after Fjellrev’s review last night, I decided I wanted to have a cup and since I am not getting my cupboard under control anytime soon, I figured why not. I am glad I did too because I really love this tea and I missed it a lot. Sometimes it’s just nice to revisit an old friend, especially one as sweet and marshmallowy as this tasty tea.

Definitely! You can’t always worry about sipdowns and ignore your old favs. :D

Reading all the ingredients in this blend, I expected more flavor tbh. I am picking up on the blackberry and I am getting a sort grape/wine type flavor. It is not bad but I hoped for more. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the chance to try it so thank you Memily!

drank Sansia Black by Butiki Teas

Today I am finding the very start of my sip astringent but that is quickly drowned out by delicious malt and honey notes. Not to mention flavors reminiscent of fresh baked bread and tasty fruits. Yum!!

The coconut is strong in the cold brew and it is nice but I am also getting grass which is less nice. Oh well, I will just stick to having this hot.

drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brewed and this makes for a delicious fruity drink. Juicy, sweet, and really spot-on when it comes to the passionfruit flavor. Still, I find myself looking or more tart as I continue to sip.

drank La Tropicale by Camellia Sinensis
1932 tasting notes

Well this was disappointing. I have been impressed with Camellia Sinensis so far but this is a huge miss for me, at least as a hot brew. It tastes incredibly artificial and almost has a clayesque flavor that is really putting me off. Every now and then I get a hint of fruit but nothing distinctive and it really isn’t strong enough to redeem the cup. The last of this sample is getting cold brewed or iced but I doubt this is one I will be sad to see go. Still, thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try this because it is one I certainly might have picked up in an order. Now I know better.

The first time I saw this tea was in a TTB and though I usually avoid pu’erh I meant to try this as per Cavocorax’s suggestion. However, I ended up forgetting and passed it along. Luckily, my tea twin Roswell Strange has me covered as she sent along a teaspoon for me to taste. Thank you!

Sipping on this cup, I am grateful that the pu’erh flavor is essentially non-existent. Nonetheless, this is still not a tea for me. It is mostly a hot cup of cinnamon water with some ginger and herb flavors to round it out. All not flavors in a tea I care enough to reach for so although I am happy for the chance to try something new, I am also glad it was just the one serving.

Bio

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
