1938 Tasting Notes

drank Ancient Rome by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

This tea is actually quite similar to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence as they are both lavender rooibos teas. However, this has the addition of berries and personally I find that this distracts from the taste of the tea as opposed to adding to it. This is still a very good cup but it is close enough to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence that I don’t need both and I prefer the other.

drank Angel Dust by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

This one smells great but like so many other fruit blends I find myself disappointed. I find I usually search for the tea base and miss it because it is not there. Nonetheless, this was not bad. It was a nice cup of tea that was a perfect balance between tart lemon and sweet strawberry. Something tells me this will be amazing to have iced in the summertime. Until then I probably won’t be reaching for it as a hot tea.

drank Ceasars Provence by CaesarsTea

THIS TASTES JUST LIKE DAVIDS JESSIE’S TEA!!! I love Jessie’s Tea so naturally I love this too. This one is better though for one reason – it is cheaper!! So now I can have more of the tea I love for less! Yay!

drank Vanilla Cream Pie by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

Both dry and steeped, this tea smells very similar to DAVIDs Red Velvet Cake. However, this is not nearly as sweet as RVC. It gets both a subtle sweetness and a slight creaminess from the vanilla. I did forget I was steeping this so I managed to way oversteep it but that merely resulted in a stronger black tea flavor.

drank Blood Orange by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

I always get excited about the smell of orange teas and then when I drink them I realize an orange tea is not really my favorite. Unfortunately this is no exception. It is not bad by any means, just not something I would typically reach for.

drank Caramel Toffee by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

OMG this is good! This is one of the first caramel or toffee teas that I have had that actually has a full-bodied toffee taste to it. The aroma fills the room with warm, sugary, caramel-y goodness. The pu’erh is subtly present and helps to stop the toffee from becoming cloying. Another hit from CaesarsTea!

ETA: I am happy to add that this resteeps quite well. The flavors are not as strong but they are still present and delicious.

You will need to send me your address though so when I do finally get through the teas, I can make you a package of samples.

drank Pecan Dessert by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

This tastes similar to DAVIDs Creme Caramel Rooibos but with a bit of fruitiness to it (however I don’t know where those are coming from given there is no fruit in this)

Unlike many DAVIDs teas which tend to have bolder flavors, the rooibos is a bit more apparent in the CaesarsTeas I have tried. With that said, I think the rooibos used in CaesarsTeas might be better quality because it tastes pretty good.

Even my roommate has been enjoying the teas and she does not usually choose flavored teas as I have mentioned many times before.

drank Peach Vanilla by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

Yet another good tea from CaesarsTea!

This smells amazingly sweet and delicious – like peach cobbler! However, the tea does not taste like it smells. It is earthy and woodsy but is given a nice sweetness from the vanilla. I don’t get much peach either but the cup is still very delicious. It is not a Peach Vanilla tea but it is a good tea nonetheless.

The website for CaesarsTea recommends adding sugar so perhaps that would help bring out the flavors some more. Something to try in the future.

drank Banana Cherry Blend by CaesarsTea
1938 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite cherry tisanes. It has a great tartness from the cherries but it is calmed by the sweetness of the bananas. Plus it is a true banana flavor and not the artificial banana flavor that many teas tend to have. So far CaesarsTea is proving to have been a good choice.

if you find one that you really like from these guys, i’d love a random try of it. I like trying new teas from random places :)

VariaTEA

So far they have all been good and I am only 4 teas into the bunch. Give me some time to test them all and I would be happy to send some samples your way.

I had my second cup of this today because a friend came over and said she wanted something not too sweet and something with roses. I do not have many floral teas as I find they can get quite perfume-y but I recommended this. Though it is not roses, it does have a similar floral taste to it. And the lychee has a nice sweetness but it is in no way cloying.

A plus – this tea steeps really nicely a second time around.

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
