424 Tasting Notes

Not a fan TTb. As much as I love green tea, this is one that I’ve never really liked. I keep trying but it’s just never gotten a special place on my palate. Hay and grass. This one seems a bit old to me. I’m not getting as much flavor out of it as I feel like I should be. Maybe its the intense hay flavor I’m not liking so much that this one usually reminds me of.

On a side note. If you ever get a chance to go to the Temple of Heaven, do it! It’s amazing.

Not a Fan TTb. I regretted choosing this one after I smelled the dry leaves. Personally I didn’t like the smell at all. But like a book I figured I’d give it a chance. This is an odd fellow. I taste brandy.

Actually, I’m really glad I had this tea now. My grandma liked to drink tea and brandy. This is to you grandma.

Cheers.

drank Coconut green by Zen Tea

Not a fan TTB. This goes down so smoothly! So smooth I’m kinda amazed. I had a bit of a breakdown. Missing my grandma. I needed a bit of a pick me up and this did nicely in helping with that.

All of the flavors blend so nicely. Nothing is too overpowering. The sencha base is a great choice.

Flavors: Coconut, Cream

I’m glad to hear that the tea helped!

Not a fan TTB. I’m hoping people reading my reviews from this TTB aren’t thrown off by the name of it. Anyway, 52 Teas I’m sorry you are going out of business. I wasn’t a big fan but I will admit you had some of the most inventive tea names ever.

As far as this tea goes. It’s not bad. Not quite cherry cola but it works. In a subtle way. I think when you call a tea a soda name it throws your brain off because your brain expects bubbles. The base of this tea is really nice. Slightly woody. Works well with the other ingredients.

I think out of everybody who has tried this, you liked it the most :)

Maybe this tea would work well as a tea-soda

drank Spicier Chai by 52teas
424 tasting notes

Not a fan TTB. I’ve never been so on the fence with a tea before. I like it, but I konda don’t. There is some flavor in it that I just don’t quite like in a chai. Ug but now that I’m drinking it more I’m tasting it less. In a way it kinda reminds me of a handmade chai i had in New Zealand. But that one had more zip to it.

Maybe it’s not fresh? When I ordered it it was HOLY COW!! spicy.

Skysamurai

Good point. Maybe i need to steep it a different way.

I’ve never had a wine give me a headache until this one so I figured I’d drink some tea to help. As far as pumpkin goes it’s very subtle. The artificial taste is throwing me off though.

drank Coconut Cabana by The Tea Spot

Not a fan TTB. Was this once called Coconut Milky Oolong?
Sitting here sipping different teas while my daughter is taking a nap. This one sounded good. It smells kinda funky when wet. And the water color is kinda cloudy which I thought was weird. This is quite a unique tea. You start off with a kinda meh flavor then you get coconut and lastly the silkyness of the oolong. The milk oolong flavor is so subtle in this one. I wish it was a little more pronounced.

3 min, 15 sec 2 tsp

Not a fan TTB. I’ve been on an oolong kick for awhile. It’s amazing the depth and different types there are. I accidently steeped it around 6 mins. I tried it at 3 and found it was too light. Luckily with oolongs or at least this type steeping it longer doesn’t ruin it. This is a smooth tea. Green attributes like grass but the silkiness of an oolong. Quite lovely.

drank Almond Oolong by Adagio Teas
424 tasting notes

Not a fan TTB. I’m not sensing quite as much almond as I thought I would in this one. There is a bit of nutty flavor but just not enough. The base is very woodsy, slight bit of earthy. A good compliment for nutty teas generally. I think if they added real almonds instead of just flavoring it would make it better for me.

drank Winter Cupcake by Teas Etc
424 tasting notes

Not my cup of Tea TTB. I figured since its May and it was 38 degrees this morning that this was a fitting tea to start with. Smells good. Sweet. Not much tea scent to it. Those little snowflakes are really cute. I can see where the cupcake title came from. It has a slight bit of green to it. But not enough for me to get a taste for what kind of base it is. Good hot but also good cold. I’m not a big fan of sugar in tea though so that brings it down a lil for me.

Preparation
2 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
