1922 tasting notes

I finally decided to try pineapple bacon tea and in my mind I built it up to be a lot scarier than it actually was. However, being as wary as I was, I decided that if I were going to try something crazy and out there, I wanted to have something comforting and delicious to wash it down with – enter my sample of Strawberry Pie Honeybush. YUM!

When I describe this tea to people, the best way I can explain it is it tastes like the delicious sweet strawberry topping they put on funnel cakes combined with the yummy cinnamon flavoring of a good apple pie. The two combines makes for the most delectable pie tea I could imagine. However, this cup in particular I steeped a little bit longer than the last and though it is still amazing, I think the flavors balance more with a shorter steep time. This cup is not as sweet and falls a bit flat on the cinnamon so I guess I found my sweet spot with the last cup and will stick to those steeping parameters in the future.

I was actually hoarding the little bit of the sample I had left but since I placed an order for more of this I decided I could finish what I had knowing there would be more of it in my cupboard soon enough. That makes this a temporary sipdown. Temporary being the key word because I am not ready to part with this awesome tea.

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
