Got this as a teapop based on the recommendations of the DAVIDs employees. I gotta say, I did not love it. I think this is best cold brewed because it keeps the hibby from taking over. Today, this was a combination hibby tartness, seltzer water carbonation weirdness, and just a hint of yogurty creaminess.

Oh North Winds, you really are quite lovely. Tbh this cup is more astringent than I remember the last one being but it does not mean this is unpleasant in any way. It is chocolate and honey that lingers long after the sip is done. Yum. Thanks again Cavocorax!!

drank Queen's Choice by Riston
1847 tasting notes

So I cold brewed this yesterday with the intention of getting one more sipdown in on “Sipdown Saturday” but ended up going to a Brazilian grill and by the time I was done dinner, it was way too late and I was way too full to have anything else so I strained this and left it for today. Then life got in the way once again and I spent a few hours with my sister just relaxing and watching shows in bed and then I spent the evening helping her boyfriend dig a hole for his mom’s new shed. So, I finally got around to drinking this now and honestly, I am happy to be finishing this up. As a cold brew, it is more strawberry flavored than it was hot but still there is a touch of bitterness I am not digging and mostly I am just left feeling underwhelmed by this blend. Thank you Sil for the sample but this is one more tea I can cross off my list. 145.

drank Snow White by Adagio Teas
1847 tasting notes

I had this iced and of all the ingredients in the blend, all I got was a lot of apple (which certainly makes sense for Snow White) and a hint of hibby tartness (which I like to think of as the poison :P). It was actually quite nice. I don’t know if this is one I would buy in quantity but I wouldn’t turn down a cup. Thank you for sharing Scheherazade. 147.

This is like a big cup of raspberry jam cookies. Sweet and fruity and quite nice. Thank you Scheherazade for the chance to try this tea. I certainly enjoyed it while it lasted. 148.

Me and mighty leaf just don’t seem to click. This tasted like pure grass. Thank you Scheherazade for sharing but this also is not for me. 149.

drank Refresh Mint by Tazo
1847 tasting notes

I grabbed this out of the GCTTB Rd 3 to try later and as I sip on it now, I can’t help but feel like this is a rather strange mint tea. I don’t know how I feel about the tarragon. Perhaps it actually detracts from the “refreshing” element and instead takes this to a more savory type tea. Mostly, I am just finding myself at a loss. It was fun to try though so thank you mewakeling for sharing. 151.

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
