2333 Tasting Notes

Sorta sipdown as the rest of this is being passed along. It is nice but I really don’t reach for it enough so hopefully it will find love somewhere else. As for this cup? The base is smooth and the peony is the prominent flavor with just a hint of lychee sweetness. At the end of the day, I really just prefer black teas when I make caffeinated cups.

drank Asia Cocktail by Tea Desire
2333 tasting notes

Thank you Roswell Strange for the share but I am not getting anything out of this. I actually had to double check what I was drinking because all I taste is a roasty vegetal base. Not horrible but not something I will ever crave. The rest of this sample is cold brewing for later so we shall see how that goes but for now this is a tea I will certainly pass up in the future.

This is much better hot as it is far less cloying and yet I am still finding it too sweet. Won’t be something I get again but it was certainly fun to try.

drank Melon White Tea by Lupicia
2333 tasting notes

Thank you jump62359 for sending this my way. I really love Lupicia’s melon flavor so I am enjoying this cup, however, I am not loving this base as much as some of the others. Weirdly I far prefer the oolong and the rooibos is delicious where as I find the white just a bit too present. Oh well. At least I have Golden Honeydew and Melon Oolong on the way in my joint Lupicia order with Sil and Cavocorax to keep me happy. Nonetheless, I am always happy to try something new.

Oh and this makes 1500 tasting notes :)

Virginia

Congrats on 1500! :D

Sil

wooohooo! go you!

OMGsrsly

Yay 1500! :)

drank Peppermint Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
2333 tasting notes

The mint is strong with this one! I made a chocolate peppermint smoothie and it is tasty but a touch too minty for my tastes. However the mint is quite cooling and delicious :). It reminds me of the Laura Secord chocolate mints. Yum! Thank you Roswell Strange!

Earl grey and chamomile, two things I don’t usually like in tea. And on a green base? I was hesitant about this one but I am so grateful to jump62359 for sending it to me because it is actually quite good. There is a hint of the blerg but it is not offensive in this smooth and buttery cup.

Jennkay

Huh, I usually don’t like earl grey or chamomile as much either. But I do love Avengers, haha

Sipdown!! (168)

…and that finishes off the pitcher and since my brother used the entire bag to make the pitcher, this is also a sipdown. I enjoy this one cold brewed so I will probably be picking up more in the future but that most likely won’t be for while after drinking a whole bunch at once.

Memily

You got through that pitcher a lot faster than I expected after giggling at your note about your brother the other day. Or I might just be in a cold virus haze and not noticed how much time has passed.

VariaTEA

Haha. I think I went through it in about a day. Problem is I let it sit in the fridge for a while and I have had tea grow mold so I figured it was best I just drink it up asap. So worry not, it is not a haze. Though I do hope you feel better soon :)

Memily

Mold :(

Cavocorax

Oh. Yuck. I’d never considered that but I’m awful for forgetting iced tea in the fridge….

drank Orzo - Caramel & Honey by Lupicia
2333 tasting notes

Sipdown!! (169)

So this tea looks like sludge when it is brewing and the steeped tea is rich, black, and incredibly dense. There is a buttery caramel flavor combined beautifully with sweet honey and a touch of coffee-like earthiness from the base. Good and incredibly unique, but not something I think I could drink all that often (hopefully the Orzo Strawberry I have on the way in a joint Lupicia order with Cavocorax and Sil will be a little easier to drink more often). Nonetheless, I am super grateful to jump62359 for introducing me to this tea and sending me a generous sample to try it :)

Amariel

I can’t wait to try this one.

whatshesaid

I’m still debating if I should include this one in my big Lupicia order or not

Unlike my tea twin counterpart, Roswell Strange, I am not usually a lover of stash teas but this…this is good. It 100% captures the peach cobbler flavor with notes of brown sugar and crumble combining perfectly with sweet peach. The guayusa is present too which helps tone everything down and keeps the sweet in check with a bit of earthiness. Definitely a tasty cup. Thank you for sending some my way Roswell Strange!

Wow. This one is really, really good. My first sip I was blown away by the smooth malt and caramel flavor but as I continue to drink, I am detecting a creaminess that is really amazing in this cup. There is even notes of orange and chocolate to round everything out and make this complex and delicious. Thank you so much Roswell Strange for sharing this awesome tea!

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.
