drank Peach Melba by Lupicia
404 tasting notes

Thank you Lupicia for the free sample. I’m not a big fan of Red rooibos. It always gives me a funny sensation in my throat that makes me wonder if I’m allergic or something. Anyway, did you know that peach melba is a dessert? Go look it up. Sounds pretty good. I’m tempted to mix this with a raspberry tea to get that flavor. Without the raspberry it’s still close to what I’m assuming that would taste like. The peaches and cream flavor is great. I’m tempted to try almond milk but I don’t want to ruin it.

And I’m sorry but who has ever put marshmallow topping on their tea? No. Probably…. maybe. Maythe Japanese. Could make a really cute milk tea drink with burnt marshmallow toppings..

drank Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

I’m not really a fan of rainbow sherbet because I’m not a fan of fake lime flavor. I’m surprised though that this tastes so much like the name. But the lime flavor really doesn’t do it for me….

A basic matcha. There are no ingredients listed and I didn’t see it on their website. I’m not sure if there is any sugar but I don’t think so. I heated 1 oz of water. Mixed in the matcha and then added almond milk.

Preparation
1 tsp

I never sleep well before early morning shows. If I have to set an alarm I just don’t get sleep because I’m afraid it won’t go off. But I did this to myself. I asked for the early morning reserve so that I could walk with my dad to his gate. He arrived early as well cause he had trouble sleeping. I think it happens to everyone. We went to get scones and tea/coffee. I picked this one. My tongue is a lil burnt from trying to try the tea while it was still too hot. But it doesn’t take away from the good grassy flavor this tea has. It’s a calming tea. I must admit though that it is still not quite as good as it could be. The after taste is not what I usually like in a green tea.

Fruit loops. Kinda reminds me of fruit loops! Honeybush is so much better then rooibos. Very light on flavor nut still good.

I’m surprised they can call it Thai tea without any black tea in it… I just went and looked it up and it does indeed have black tea. Generally a Ceylon but sometimes Assam is used. According to the Wiki. I’d be very tempted to try this with the thai tea I have.

Regardless this is still pretty good. Not quite chai and not quite thai but it does have the flavors of both. Creamy and slightly spicy.

Edit: So curiosity got the best of me and I brewed a tea bag with this tea. Turned out better then I expected. Bet it would be pretty good with some nice frothy almond milk too.

The Thai tea mix I usually buy is made with green tea, though I would have guessed black without looking at the ingredients list.

drank Crisp Apple by Farmer Brothers

Smells good. Kinda like that fake powdered apple cider drink. The taste… meh. Too much chamomile. The color is lovely though.

drank Green Tea by Farmer Brothers

Started off ok. Just your cheap tasting plain green. Within a few minutes it started tasting odd. Couldn’t finish it. The hotel we layover at just started carrying this brand.

Preparation
1 min, 15 sec

Eating at Jensens with my husband’s family. Hadn’t had any tea yet so I needed to get some. Luckily they are pretty savvy with their tea here. It’s a light mango flavor. Can’t tell what the base is.

I’ve like this one the best thus far. I’m surprised that the blueberry flavor comes through as well as it does. It smells quite a bit of bergamot when I opened the bag but surprisingly I do not taste any. For a blueberry tea it is good but overall nothing amazing.

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.
