drank Chocolate by Adagio Teas

Not a Fan TTB. It’s been a hard day for me. I need a bit of a pick me up. And those fruit snacks did nicely. Not quite sure of what to think about this tea though. It has chocolate flavor to it; and the smell is actually quite good. But it’s somewhat artificial. The flavor that is.

Not a fan TTB. On a layover and its raining outside. So I’m just going to drink tea and watch anime.

Vegetal notes mainly but also grass and some marine notes. I feel like there isn’t much to say about this one.

drank Not So Vanilla by Tippy's Tea

Not a fan TTB. This doesn’t pair well with mac and cheese. Really a unique vanilla tea. for some reason I keep thinking of bourbon. Something about the woodiness of the base. The vanilla flavor doesn’t really hit until the after taste.

I love this review! That’s too bad that it did not work well with the mac and cheese and you did not enjoy this tea as much.

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

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
457 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.

Preparation
3 min, 15 sec 2 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.
