2609 Tasting Notes

70

After steeping this for 20 minutes I am getting some peanut butter and a little bit of a creaminess that I would call cheesecake. With that said, it is not what I was expecting. Something about it is a touch off and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I have one more cup of this remaining and though it is a tasty enough cup, I won’t be too heartbroken when it is gone.

This is more spice and less honey. Not anything special but not offensive either.

drank Cafe Vanilla by Della Terra Teas
2609 tasting notes

Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this one with me. It is actually a very delicious vanilla tea. However, I have said before and I will say it again, this is quite similar to Vanilla Comoro and as that one is caffeine free, that is the one I will be keeping around.

Flavors: Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Glad you enjoyed it! I wonder how this compares to the caffeinated version of Vanilla Comoro? I think I’d probably still prefer the decaf version though…

I did not even know that Comoro had a caffeinated version :P

Thank you Aimee Popovacki for this tasty tea. I drank up what Roswell Strange sent me yesterday and today I finished off the last of my second sample. It is a good tea and I am sure I will get more in the future but I just don’t know when in the future. So much tea, so little time but I am happy I got to try it.

I love this one. I drink it more in the spring and summer, and it cold brews well too. A fave of mine for sure.

I think in general I prefer French Toast but I am always impressed with this tea. It has the thick, starchy mouth feel of pancakes and the delicious taste of butter and maple. Not something I can drink everyday but definitely a nice treat when I have it.

drank Rum Raisin Ice Cream by 52teas

Sipdown!! (151)

Thank you Scheherazade for the chance to try this. I was always curious but did not enough to buy 2 oz of it. However, now that I have tried it, I think I can confidently say this is one of the better 52 black teas I have tried. The base is not as prominent as it usually is and instead the rum raisin flavors are spot on and delicious. I am actually really enjoying the cup and if rum raisin was a flavor I craved more often, I would certainly be stocking up on this anytime it were available.

I almost sent you some to try and then remembered your raisin aversion :P

I am finding this a touch weak today. Usually I enjoy this tea because of the cinnamon but I am finding it muted. Oh well.

drank La Mangue by Fauchon

Thank you Dexter3657 for the chance to try this tea. It really does smell amazingly like delicious mango. Alas, this follows suit of so many other french teas and falls short when it comes to the taste. It is still pleasant but I feel as though I am not sophisticated enough to truly appreciate the subtle nuances of so many French teas I have tried.

Thank you Josie Jade for the chance to try this tea. I have always been curious as to what it tastes like given it is included in A LOT of the fandom blends. It is a touch astringent and the base is prominent but there is definitely a nice creaminess to the tea so I suppose it lives up to its name.

Flavors: Cream

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

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.
