3181 Tasting Notes

So it seems some taste receptors are working and some aren’t. I picked up on a little bit of the spice and something weird and then there’s just a random void in flavor. I should probably stop attempting to try new teas.

Made this hot for the first time in a while to go with my pancake “breakfast”. I am getting a weird sweetness here and my guess is the blackberry leaf is to blame. Oh well.

So when you’re sick, tea tastes off. Moreso than food. And since today I am feeling okay, I wasn’t sure if the tea would taste off or not. Consequently I decided to make a smoothie but opted to use something I had a lot of in case it got weird. Well, initially when I tried this, I basically just got the rooibos base but somehow that transitioned to a honey-like flavor drizzled over the mixes berries that make up a considerable part of this smoothie. So that’s fun.

I’ve had a fever the past 2 nights but I have 3 sick days for the whole year and I’ll be damned if I use them in February. So, each morning I have taken my temperature and since that’s fine I go to work and then slowly get worse through the day. Well today someone on my team noticed and bought me this tea. I was actually quite grateful because the hot tea was rather soothing. Yay for work friends! Boo for management that thinks 3 “personal time off days are enough for an entire year”

You’re legally entitled to 10 per year… not necessarily paid. It sucks. Feel better soon!!

Seriously, boo for only three days in which one can feel poorly and still get paid while resting to feel human. Hope you feel better soon.

Review for the tea-infused milk chocolate bar

A couple weeks back I found a DAVIDs that had a whole bunch of their holiday stuff left and on sale, including their chocolates. For $2 I decided to give this a try and it was AWESOME!! I think my favorite DAVIDsTEA infused chocolate: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/17/cardamom-french-toast-tea-infused-milk-chocolate-bar-from-davids-tea/

Happy Valentine Day everyone!! I may be single but I have awesome friends so I’m now the proud owner of two new mugs from DAVIDs and the heart shaped tin of this tea. Luckily this was my preferred of the Valentine’s Day collection which I reviewed here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/14/the-2017-valentines-day-collection-from-davids-tea/

I’m firmly of the belief that Valentines is for all kinds of love, not just the romantic kind. Having friends who care about you is a wonderful thing. :)

Well said, Jillian!

So the last time I had this it was as a latte and it was amazing. Today I decided to try it plain and though the smell of sticky toffee pudding took over the whole apartment the taste was lacking. It’s like toffe syrup sweetened black tea. Not bad but the milk definitely brought out more sticky toffee pudding flavor so I’ll stick to having this as a latte.

Dessert-flavoured dragon pearls is such a lovely concept. Let’s hope the idea will be improved upon!

Straightup the flavouring is pretty powerful, maybe too much so even.

I swore I had this years ago but there doesn’t seem to be a note. Nonetheless, I thought I would try it (again?) and it would seem that I am (still?) not a huge fan. I made it today as a latte and if I am being fair there is nothing wrong here since it delivers on what it promises: there’s begamot, there’s rose, and there’s chocolate (though a little dusty thanks to carob). Unfortunately, I just don’t love the flavor components to begin with and putting them together makes it that much more unpleasant for me. So, at the end of the day I can appreciate that this makes a nice latte for those who like these ingredients but for me…well let’s just say I don’t think my tastes have changed as much as I thought they did. Oh well.

ETA: My old tasting note popped up when I posted this. So I definitely have had this before and I was not a fan back then either :P.

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!

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, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

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.
