drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
441 tasting notes

I let it steep a bit too long because I didn’t want my bacon to burn. Even so it’s still drinkable. I love how the candy corn melts into the water and creates such a satisfying flavor. Kinda wish I had a few more candy corns to add to it.

It’s a good tea but not one that I would buy for myself. It does indeed have an imperial taste to it. Reminds me of something they might serve at high noon with a biscuit. In some ways this reminds me of a Ceylon. Maybe that’s why I’m not such a fan. The added flavors make up for that though. It’s a good blend, even if it is a little weird.

This one is not an expert of Genmaicha but I’ve drank enough of it to feel like I can tell the difference between companies… etc. This one I find to be mediocre. It’s good but I just don’t quite find myself being happy with every sip like I do with some others I have tasted. This has happened a few times with other genmaichas that I’ve tried. This one is grassy and has a slight rice flavor but not enough to really get my taste buds going.

drank Coconut Oolong by Rishi Tea

A very smooth oolong with a hint of coconut. For awhile I was trying to figure out why the coconut in this tea seemed different then others and then I realized its because it reminds me of a freshly opened coconut.

The flavor vanilla can be hit or miss with tea. I find it’s either too light or just right. Luckily I haven’t found a tea that has over done the vanilla; but I have found one that mixed it with a weird flavor. Anyway, I really like what they did with this one. The smell and the taste are great. Not liking the after taste much but whatever. Do you notice that the steeped smell is also really good?

And I’ve been forgetting… This one is from the Tea box.

Della Terra you got this one right! How pleasant a flavor this tea has! Truly it does have hints of molasses flavor. Makes me want to bake an apple pie or something. It is good hot and surprisingly I also liked it cold. I’ll have to try this again with some honey.

drank Momoko by Lupicia

This taste… it reminds me of my grandma’s bathroom. Though it’s a sad state now a days before she always kept peach smelling soap and what not in there. The vanilla I couldn’t really taste until the tea got cold. Which I found rather odd. Not a tea I would get for myself but glad I was able to try it.

Bathroom tea does not sound pleasant :P

Not sure why I love plain green tea so much but glad I do. This one is quite grassy. Very reminiscent of the teas we had while in Japan. Still below Genmaicha in my opinion but for a straight up green tea it’s well balanced.

I get it…greens are satisfying in a particular way!

drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas
441 tasting notes

Used to hate cherries. Didn’t even like cherry candy anything. But as with most adults my tastes have changed and some how I ended up finding myself liking them. Well…. kinda. I prefer the sour ones. Like in this tea.

The dry smell is great. Would make a great potpourri. But is better as a tea. I didn’t pick up much from the brewed smell. The taste isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be but I’m still enjoying it. Fruity yes but the sour cherry isn’t as present as I thought it would be. Good hot but I like it better lukewarm.

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more 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.
