This tastes like the black cherry flavoring in black cherry soda. I don’t know if I am getting any cream notes but this is cherry and sweet and I am happy.

This gets more astringent as it cools so it is best to finish it off before that happens.

I found some Pumpkin Chai tins on sale in January and had some eggnog lying around so I put them together and the end result was awesome! http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/07/pumpkin-chai-from-davids-tea/

There was so much rose in the tea bag yet this tastes like a generically floral oolong. Nothing special to see here. Better than expected but still nothing worth revisiting.

A jasmine green that is not at all perfumey or dry. It is like a citrusy floral flavor instead and one that is really quite nice. As far as jasmine teas go, this is probably my favorite among those I have tried.

I made the last of this and steeped for a shorter period in a smaller mug I am getting more than just ginger. Still no honey or pancakes but notes of molasses are helping create a gingerbread experience. Actually, I take it back. There is honey in here courtesy of the yunnan base. Pancakes are still a no go but maybe that was trying to do too much with one tea? I am just happy this last cup went better than the last and though I am not sad I am finishing this, I will miss the incredibly pretty leaf.

I made this alongside Smokey Butterscotch Peach and couldn’t remember which tea was in which mug and now both just taste smokey. Oops.

Wait, there was a Maple Apple Tea Cake?

I don’t recall the Tea Cake part.

I’ve done that before, mixing teas up and then they taste the same. Frustrating!

drank Chocolate Éclair by 52teas

I like this!! It’s like peppermint marshmallow melting in hot chocolate but without the mint. Awesome velvety chocolate flavor…like a milk chocolate fondue but with a nice punch of vanilla bean to reflect the eclair custard. This is not really the best description and sorry for that but I will say this delivers on the chocolate eclair flavor it promises and that makes it awesome!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cream, Custard, Vanilla

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank The Smoking Coconut by 52teas
3187 tasting notes

I usually make my tea in my 16 oz mugs but today I have been making smaller mugs today so I can drink more varieties. This is among one of the smaller batches and I am finding the flavors are coming out much better this way. Maybe that’s in my head or maybe it is because I am getting to the teas while they are still hot. Whatever it is, I should do this more often.

This tea is very smooth and creamy but has a nice smokey undertone. The coconut is flavorful but not lotiony so it is making for a creamy/sweet and smoke combination which I am really enjoying.

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.
