290 Tasting Notes


I received this a long time ago from someone, who I am pretty sure I still owe tea till.
I had it store in less than optimal conditions.
I wasn’t getting much caramel, or much sweetness to this, however it was AMAZING. So good, possibly the best oolong to date. I can only imagine how good it would be if it was fresh.

Sounds so good! U have the caramel oolong from della.terra want to try this!


ah! I have ONE teaspoon of this I haven’t tried yet! Must soon!


Hey, long time no see! Welcome back!


Thanks CHAroma, life has been insane & I needed to get some things on track. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to being a good stepsterite!

drank Coconut Grove by DAVIDsTEA

Received this quite some time ago with an order. Made a small mug because, those little sample pack don’t have enough for a regular me size mug.
First off, I love coconut flavoured anything. Although haven’t had much luck with them, except for one I received during the 12 days swap last Christmas.
This is gross, it tasted like sun bathing lotion. BARF! Although I love the smell of that stuff, it’s not something I wanted to taste!

180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 15 sec

finished this one off as an iced tea on Saturday. It was good, but not something I feel the need to restock.
Pretty sure I had this hot as well, but I don’t see a note on it. oops.
It’s definitely citrusy & a bit creamy.

Iced 8 min or more

Ok, so I bought this & a bagel to kill time while I was waiting for a store to open this morning. Bought myself a new bathing suit, for my birthday pool party! woooooooo

I got a large, 2 bags in. I let it steep for a couple of minutes. All I got was artificial blueberry taste. UGH ok Tim Horton’s, you are a Canadian company, you should know good blueberry. BLECH!
I ended up tossing the cup.

The water temp scale cannot go high enough for how hot this stupid crap was!

I stopped by the store today, looking to try something iced.
Let me tell you I smelt a lot of nasty smelling teas. YUCK! This one was off putting in scent. But I tried it anyways because I love cranberry & I love Singapore slings.

This is freakin nasty! So much cough medicine taste!

drank Chocolate Cake by Tealux

Received this from Dexter in our swap.

It definitely smells like chocolate. However taste wise I find it very lacking, I’m not getting chocolate or cake, not even rooibos. It’s just really boring, I didn’t even finish the mug.

Boiling 7 min, 45 sec

Not sure why this isn’t logged because I have definitely had it before.
I way over steeped this.
Surprisingly given the long steep this tea holds up really well, no astringency or bitterness.
This may be better than I remember it to be the first time. Last time I drank it out of a clear mug & it looked very unappealing because it steeps up very murky. Today I drank it from my travel mug so I thankfully couldn’t see it.
Looks aside this was quite good, I found it tasted like a chocolate chai, maybe the best chocolate chai I’ve had. It was a really nice tea to sip all day, a lot of teas get bitter over time or change flavour, this one stayed really delicious all the way through.

I bought this when I had my first cold in over a year, but by the time I got this tea it was over.
So right now I’ve got some type of cold/allergies going on, my throat is super scratchy & a bit sore & I’m so congested its ridonculous!

So I brewed this up, it definitely helped while I was drinking it and for a bit after. It’s really not pleasant tasting, but I never expect anything for illness to taste good.
It tastes like a slightly sweet spaghetti sauce, quite strange.

This note is from a long time ago.

This tastes foul, down right like I am eating leaves. YUCK!
I did use it to treat my cramps & as an effective cramp suppressant this gets 100! As a tasty, I want to drink you all the time, a big fat 0.

Alright so I got the re-blend of this last week. & right from smelling the packet this morning, there was something off. It had an almost fruity scent to the dry leaves.

Much the same once steeped, it’s almost fruity & only slightly pancakeish. I did add a touch of maple syrup, which maybe is what really threw the cup off for me. But it was not the yumminess I remember

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

ahhh yes I remember reading this. Going to try it with this one & my S’mores.


Maybe it’s also from being around all those fruity 52teas? I try to store all my buttery teas together, maple teas together, etc. That way if there is cross-contamination, hopefully it will just make it yummier. ;)
