2582 Tasting Notes

Thank you Sil for the sample of this to try. It is not one I would have ordered if I saw it on a site but it is still fun to try. Honestly, this is more honey than I was expecting which is good since it is the ingredient I like the most in this blend. The other flavors come through as well but more as a compliment to the sweet honey quality. It is nice but I think I am satisfied with just the one cup. Hopefully Cavocorax enjoys this one too.

yep it was a good one cup, NEXT! :)

drank Strawberry Cream by RiverTea
2582 tasting notes

I wish I cold brewed this. It is not bad hot but I can see this really shining cold. Right now, there is elements of cream and a flavor relatively close to strawberry, complete with a touch of berry tartness to keep this from being cloying. It is not my favourite herbal I have ever tried but it is pleasant and unique enough that I would keep it around for something different every now and then. Thank you Sil for the sample :)

I was excited to try this after the success I had with the other Whispering Pines blends Cavocorax shared but I am finding this a bit bland. There is some mint and some chocolate but I was expecting more. Nonetheless, thank you Cavo for the chance to try it.

ETA: The flavors come out a bit more as this cools which is making for a nice cup.

Cavocorax

That is odd! Maybe I oversteeped mine?

Thank you Sil for sharing this but I am not a fan. It’s not bad but something tastes off at the very end of the sip. It is almost as if the caramel is just a bit older than I would like it to be and the rooibos a touch too woody. I am grateful for the opportunity to try it though. Hopefully Cavocorax will have better luck.

Thank you Cavocorax for the sample. I am a fan of this one as well. This and Golden Orchid are probably both going to be stocked as this is a rich chocolatey blend while Orchid is a creamy vanilla. Both are delicious and both will probably find a home in my cupboard.

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brewed, this still tastes wonderfully of dragon fruit. I will have to pick up some more next time I am in DAVIDs. I gave the rest of my leaf to Sil when I went to visit her since I don’t have many teas she hasn’t tried so when I do, I share but I think I would stock this throughout the summer.

Sil

yeah ’cause i totally MUST HAVE MOAR TEAS…not :P looking forward to trying this one, trying to decide on cold or hot at the moment

VariaTEA

I’ve only had it iced and cold brewed because I am afraid of the hibby being too tart hot.

Made this as a smoothie with frozen mango and coconut almond milk and it was AMAZING! The flavors blended beautifully while still being distinguishable on their own = creamy coconut, sweet mango, and awesome strawberry milkshake matcha blending together to make the perfect treat :)

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA

Grabbed this as one of two iced teas to go along with Caramel Corn. I am actually pleasantly surprised that this does taste like dragon fruit. Some sips more than others while some are more apple, but it is good. I bought some loose leaf to go as well so I can see how it fairs as a cold brew but if it is as good as this, I would definitely consider stocking this as a caffeine free option.

So heart breaking news: Tre has informed me that it appears he wont be getting our tea for us. Regina was (still kinda is) really, really flooded and he wasn’t able to get to the store on the day he set aside to do it.

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.
