556 Tasting Notes
My sister’s co-worker gave her a free box of this tea. This morning I made it with unsweetened almond milk and agave nectar on the stove.
Really good. A real treat.
Not fancy but definitely a great use of a free tea.
this one is from CHAroma and she sent me a lot and even though i have had great luck with upton overall I do think this one is weird. maybe after more tastes it’ll grow on me. that is definitely a thing that has been known to happen. definitely.
bear with me i’m writing from my phone. but i wanted to make some progress on my tea notes before i get too super behind.
i actually enjoyed this tea! before i put it away in the cupboard i recommended it to my sister for when she’s in the mood for a chocolatey tea. i can see that CHAroma didn’t like this tea not only from her note but also from the generous amount she mailed me hah. and i’m glad she did! win win!
and let me say that this is maybe the first time where the swapper rated the tea low and sad, and i wanna give it high green numbers. this tea is yummy!! to me it tasted like coconut caramel. very cookies. and very cuddly. and just damn nice comfort in a cup. when i try it again I’ll check myself before I wreck myself about these thoughts. I mean sure it’s always possible I was just in a good mood or something right? but really. it tastes like cookies and they are yummy cookies.
uh oh. i went to the mall today.
i go to the mall NEVER. seriously NEVER! but my sister took me so i could get some avengers t-shirts. it was a high priority mission.
this tea is nice. i won’t buy more but now that the pack is open i bet i will drink it quickly.
sample from whatshesaid whoop whoop!
i knew this was a unique one and really wanted to try it out. and honestly, this might be one of the most berry tasting teas i’ve tried. whoda thunk?! but really. usually berry greens just taste like greens but this one is greatly balanced. i kinda got over davidstea for a while, but this might spark my interest again. just a little. yummy!
Thank you Sil!
i knew i would love it the second i smelled it. the scent has overtaken my whole desk!
give me this zesty assam because i got like NO sleep last night and have a long and busy day ahead of me so help me gawd.
brew brew brew!!

minty good! it smells awesome and looks alien!
i always think gunpowder green looks kinda alien when it’s in those little balls.
can i just say… The Baby!
my god the baby cried and cried and cried last night. mom is out of town and dad is taking care of her alone for the first time and at some point like around 4:30 am i just flat out gave up trying to sleep and started reading.
i would be more compassionate with the guy, but lately i’ve been at my limit with men and their anger and their inability to manage their stress like a grown-up. and how it’s all in our media and messin with our politics and stuff, making beautiful things and potential all stifled and choked-off, so i know i’m not as tolerant as i should be on the inside, but THIS is what happens when you GET NO SLEEP hah
catch 22 for sure.
the strawberry is light and mellow. and playful and perfect for the summer season.
after i take a sip and the tea is gone, a strawberry taste keeps lingering in my mouth.
thanks for this wonderful smelling tea KallieBoo!
