3021 Tasting Notes

Thank you Angel at Teavivre for sending this my way as this is a lovely tea, both aesthetically and flavor wise. The leaves have been steeping for over a half hour and yet there is no astringency or bitterness whatsoever. Just smooth black tea with a hint of rose. Malty and floral with a hint of honey and a dash of pepper. It’s mellow and would be nice for those days when you just want something simple that you don’t need to really think about.

So I have just finished my 250g bag of this tea…and I feel like I need more so I guess I’m a fan.

Whoa, a 250g bag. That deserves applause. :D

This tea was smooth and simple yet different. I have enjoyed it while it lasted and though I am okay with seeing it finished, I probably wouldn’t turn down another cup in the future

Goodbye Sweetie

You have gone out in the weirdest manner since the milk and eggnog did not froth for this latte nonetheless I will cherish the fond memories of you forever.

Nougat and spice and everything nice. No vegetal base to be found in this eggnog latte. Alas no more River Tea to be found in my cupboard either :(

Having this as a smoothie again and I’m actually sorta blowing through the 50g I accidentally bought so I guess that’s good. Today the mint is a little more toned down but I think that’s because I used a more flavorful fruit mix. Still good though and pretty refreshing. For a winter tea, this is a pretty summery smoothie.

I went to DAVIDs today with the intent of grabbing a sample except when I said 15g, they heard 50 and now I have quite a bit of this tea. It meant I got to use up my free tea which was nearing expiration so that was good.

Anyways, because I have so much I figured it was a good choice for a smoothie. It’s really creamy and sweet and the peppermint is bold and cooling. It’s delicious though I will say the peppermint builds and can have a bit of a medicinal quality at the start of the sip where the flavor is harshest. It does mellow and then sorta settles into the rest of the flavors.

Made this as an eggnog latte with a marshmallow drink topper and though the marshmallow and eggnog are contributing a great deal of sweetness to help bring out the vanilla, the creamy orange is the finishing star of each sip. It’s lovely though I don’t know if I need to have it again. This one cup can make for a nice little fling that’s fun while it lasted and will be fondly remembered. Thank you Sil for the share!

Creamy lemon. Like lemon chiffon cake. Yum :)

Evol Ving Ness

Mmm. Lemon chiffon cake.

This had me searching my stash for a creamy lemon tea! I hold you entirely responsible for my now almost empty Lemon French Macaron from Butiki ): haha

VariaTEA

I’m sorry. If needed, I have more of this tea and some L’Hiver by Fauchon I can share :). I also have Lemon French Macaron but I don’t know how much.

Nattie

That would be awesome! Thank you so much!! I’m always on the lookout for Butiki substitutes, and I do love lemon teas (: feel free to have a look through my cupboard if there’s anything you’d like to try!

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.
