drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia
1344 tasting notes

Sad, sad sipdown. Although the blow is softened given I will get at least one more cup soon enough thanks to the lovely jump62359 (sorry if I screwed up the numbers).

Thank you Dustin for sharing with me. This tea is perfect. Delicious honey dew flavor that is true to the fruit, AND its caffeine free?!? Doesn’t get much better than this.

Oooh, this one has potential!

MissB

This tea is amazing. I need to have some more tonight…

Amariel

I really want to try this one! I added it to my wishlist. It’s green rooibos, so I ought to be good with it.and I love honeydew…

drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia
1344 tasting notes

Usually I avoid oolong teas but Kat_Maria was kind enough to send this over so I decided to give it a try. Luckily, just like Melon Oolong, the base is not as strong as oolongs tend to be and thus I am finding the cup quite enjoyable. The mango flavor is fresh and sweet and the whole tea is light and fruity. Very nice. I don’t think I will be stocking up on this one because there are other mango teas I enjoy more but this is a tasty option to have. Thank you for sharing, Kat_Maria!

drank Chestnut Green Tea by Lupicia
1344 tasting notes

I am liking this one. A lot. I honestly was not expecting to enjoy it this much but it really is a good cup of tea. The green base is smooth and light which allows the perfectly rich chestnut flavor to shine. Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing this with me! It truly is great!

drank Goji Strawberry by Cornelia Bean
1344 tasting notes

I think I finally found the right combination to get a nice rounded flavor from this tea: 2 parts Goji Strawberry mixed with 1 part DAVIDs Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. The sweetness of this tea is balanced by the tart of SRP and it is all accompanied by the delicious yogurt flavor. Yum. Now off to shower and write an exam! Almost done guys :)

drank Lychee Bloom by DAVIDsTEA
1344 tasting notes

So far today I have had a cup of tea spilled on my laptop and my dinner dumped on my roommates shoes. It has not been a very good night thus far. Though I have been with friends and that is fun.

Now we are enjoying a pot of this pretty tea. It tastes nice enough but nothing spectacular. Lychee is definitely present and the base has a full body.

Courtney

Agh. I hope this evening looks up. :)

Aw crap. :|
Is the laptop ok? My friend spilled tea on hers and after drying it out for a long time it was fine again…

VariaTEA

The laptop is all good, thankfully, especially given I have an exam at 6 pm

A friend is visiting and so I decided to use this opportunity to sip on a pretty blooming tea while we study. This way, I don’t need to drink a whole pot of tea on my own and we have something nice to look at as opposed to just our computer screens and textbooks.

As for the tea, it is actually surprisingly good. I always expect blooming teas to lack in flavor but this has a mellow peach taste atop a smooth white base.

drank Decaf Sakurambo by Lupicia
1344 tasting notes

Sipdown!! (159)

Thank you Dustin for sharing this great tea. It honestly is one of the better cherry flavors I have had and the black base provides a surprising amount of body for a decaffeinated tea. It is like indulging on a juicy cherry, both sweet and tart and oh-so-delicious. I am sad to see it go.

Profile

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
