475 Tasting Notes

This was also pretty weird. I’m not sure how I feel about this brand now, but at the same time, these were just samples I got in a trade. Anyway, it tastes like cherry cobbler to me, and it has a sort of creamy quality, but I found it kinda bland. Maybe I’ll try it with 2 teaspoons and see what I think. I couldn’t really taste the butterscotch chips.

drank Butter Truffles by The Tea Table

This tea is so weird. Not only are there whole pistachios in it, there’s also cumin spice (which is used in making tacos) and peppercorns. While it does have a sort of sugar-cookie-ish taste, it does also sort of taste like… butter. And spices. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. But at the same time, I think this will have to be an acquired taste.

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo
475 tasting notes

Oh god. One sniff and I was instantly reminded of orange-scented disinfectant. This stuff is TERRIBLE. I took a few sips, trying to find something I liked about it, but I just couldn’t. I dumped it out shortly after. It’s blindingly artificial. Awful, awful, awful.

drank Awake by Tazo

This tea is alright. I like the black tea taste, but it’s kind of unremarkable otherwise. However, it really does live up to its name. I get a pretty nice caffeine buzz from it! So it’s great right before going to work.

drank Mango by Adagio Teas
475 tasting notes

One of my favorite Adagio teas! It was one of the first I’ve ever tried, too. The mango taste isn’t overwhelming along with the ceylon. I’ve noticed a lot of mango teas have a strong orange flavor added, but this one doesn’t. It’s just so good.

I would have never thought to put sage in a tea, but it was a great idea. I’ve been drinking this tea on and off for years. It’s a mainstay for my tea collection.

drank Forest Berries by Adagio Teas
475 tasting notes

Wow… I thought this tea sounded like a good idea. I usually love berry flavored anything, but I couldn’t stand this stuff. It has a strange scent that turned me off before I brewed it. Couldn’t even finish my first cup. I ended up dumping it out.

drank Guanabana by Adagio Teas
475 tasting notes

Nothing but love, love, love for guanabana! I need to get myself a big tin of this. It does taste very exotic in a way that’s hard to describe. There is a sort of strawberry-ish flavor, and definitely some citrus, but otherwise… this is just a tea you have to try to understand. It’s a favorite for me, and my friends really like it, too. Last time I made tea at a friend’s house, everyone ended up drinking two cups. It’s especially yummy with a glob of honey.

Of the few Zodiac Series teas I’ve tried, this is the one I’ve liked the most. It tastes of peach, but it’s a light flavor as compared to the taste of the tea itself. I think it’s a great tea for summer, and it’s good iced, too! I served it to a few of my friends and they enjoyed it as well. But maybe I favor it because I’m a Gemini, myself…

drank Passion by Tazo

This is my favorite tea by Tazo. It brews up deep red and smells delicious. Like citrus, hibiscus and something else that’s wonderful. It has a very strong flavor, which is something I look for, and tastes even better cold. I love it iced! I just wish I could get it in loose form instead of bagged.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
