103 Tasting Notes

Day 1 of the 2013 DT advent calendar presented me with this! I do enjoy my minty teas, so I was looking forward to giving this one a try. Not as minty as I would like, but not bad for a chilly Sunday afternoon. What I also liked about this one was that there’s enough leaves in my little sample tin for about 3-4 fresh mugs of tea, let alone any re-steepings. Maybe this one will grow on me some more, haha.

I loved the inital smoky, campfire-y smell of this one! It’s definitely different than any other type of black tea I’ve tried, though I think the taste will have to become one I get used to. It might actually have a little too bold for my liking!

Again, I was in the mood for a plain, straight black tea this morning. I hadn’t tried this one before, so problem solved. I added a bit of milk to this cup (as I generally do with straight teas), and it was just like I expected/needed. Nothing fancy, but comforting and delicious.

Not the best flavour of black tea I’ve ever tried, but I thought it was still drinkable! The smell of the steeped tea was amazing, I’ll give it that. I had to wait a while for this one to cool down before I sampled, and considering I was never really a fan of actual cherry cola, I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Again, another lemon tea for me to try… I’m not sure if I liked this or Main Squeeze better. The lemon taste is very strong and it definitely perked me up!

I was hoping I was never going to have to review this one, haha. But alas, the cold bug has hit me and I decided to try this blend to see if it would help any. I like to drink mint teas when I’m sick, but I didn’t want to associate my plain peppermint tea with being sick. This one obviously is a little different due to the addition of the eucalyptus. I’m glad I have this in my cupboard now, as it has done good in helping me feel better. Anything to try to take less cold meds, yeah?

I spontaneously bought a bag of this due to my love for minty teas – and mmmm, I am so glad I did! Plain peppermint, nice and strong and right up my alley (and it being organic is a nice touch as well). Well done.

I’m a little wary of maté blends because of the whole stimulant thing (I like them, but don’t have one very often), but I was feeling particularly blah and decided I’d try this one to up the energy level a little. And oh my god, the chocolate raspberry taste I got from this was DIVINE. I think I might stock this when my honeydew maté (yes, from the spring collection, I have been hoarding it!) runs out.

Had this one as a to-go sample from my store a couple of days ago… Absolutely delicious. I’m addicted to anything Earl Grey related, and realised I hadn’t tried this version yet. I had mine plain so I got the full tea flavour. If white tea wasn’t so expensive I would have bought a tin of this on the way out, haha. Maybe sometime in the future :]

I may despise winter, but I love the re-appearance of this tea! This tastes similar to Forever Nuts, which I also love, but is different enough to warrant a full tin purchase on the second day it is released, haha. Unless I am wowed by one of the new blends, this one remains my favourite winter tea.
