1962 tasting notes

Thank you Cavocorax for the sample of this tea. I am a fan of Mulberry Magic and so many people say that the two are very similar but Mulberry Magic is better so I never even thought about trying this one. I am very glad you sent me some though because I definitely would have been missing out if I never had a sip. This is definitely similar to Mulberry Magic except it is a bit sweeter (not super sweet like many have led me to believe it would be) and deliciously creamy. On top of all that yumminess, this tea actually tastes like pistachios which is always a nice reminder of my grandparents who used to feed me pistachios when I was younger.

The only downside to this tea is it was so good that it is already gone (Sipdown!) and since it is not a part of the permanent collection there is no more Pistachio Cream for me. Well Cavocorax, I don’t know if I should thank you for sending me the sample of this delectable tea or be mad at you for getting me hooked on something I can’t have. Luckily I still have Mulberry Magic to (sorta) fill the Pistachio Cream void my collection now has. Thank you Cavocorax for introducing me to such a delicious tea.

I preferred Mulberry Magic because I like the Mulberry more than the Pistachio, but if you want more Pistachio, keep in mind Butiki’s Pistachio Ice Cream.

From her website: [It} has an Organic Mao Jian base with generous amounts of roasted pistachios and a dash of lotus stamens. The sweet roasted pistachio flavor is immediately noticed followed by prominent notes of heavy cream. Light notes of vanilla can also be distinguished. Add some sugar to turn this smooth full-bodied tea into a dessert treat that resembles pistachio ice cream.

You mentioned this tea again recently and it reminded me – have you seen this: http://www.davidstea.com/pistachio-cream-250g?&TF=27F5948F6518&DEID=

Of course, for that much you better love it!

VariaTEA

OMG CAVO I LOVE YOU!!! But now I am torn because I just bought 200 g and do I really need that much more!?!? Something to ponder… Thank you so much!!

Cavocorax

It probably won’t sell out that quickly – some of those blends have been there for months. :) But just keep an eye on the web specials page as they add/remove teas without warning.

VariaTEA

That’s for sure because after trying the tea I watched it a bunch of times and nothing

Cavocorax

Figures. :( What butts. Maybe it takes them a month or so to put the Fall collection teas up there? They don’t want to do it right away or we might not buy the Winter ones? Who knows.

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
