290 Tasting Notes

I got this in the flat rate box I bought from emilie
I brewed this up as a latte on the stove, my home smells fantastic. On first sip I got a soapy taste but after that I could taste all the spices but not the chocolate. The spices really linger on the tongue when the tea is hot.
There was a familiar taste to this tea but I just couldn’t place it and then it came to me, Ginger snaps! Oh how I miss those little round Ginger snaps, I think I’m going to have to buy some now. If without the milk and touch of honey this still tastes like Ginger snaps I’m going to have to add this to my cupboard.

I received this in a swap from tigress_al
It smells so good, minty & creamy. I’m not sure what all the talk about dirt, fish etc is.
Once steeped it smells even more creamy & delicious, oh I hope it tastes just like it smells.
Alas it does not, it is decently minty tea, with a light tea base & an aftertaste. It’s decent, but not as delicious as it could be.

I got this in a swap a while back. It smells very nice & fruity. It steeps to a nice pink/red colour.
I love the flavours of this tea, but often find it is a little too light in taste. It has become one of my fav teas to ice though.

I made this iced, to me an Orange Creamsicle can only be iced.
The dry notes smell just like an orange creamsicle, so potent & sweet. Once steeped it still smells like this, the rooibos starts to come out though. I think by now we know I don’t like rooibos teas, but I had to try this.
There is only the slightest hint of orange creamsicle in it, thankfully though the rooibos isn’t strong & I will be able to finish the pitcher of it.

I got this in a sampler pack from iheartteas in early June and I am only now tasting it. The dry notes smell like banana bread. my nanny makes THE best banana bread.
once steeped I get a touch of artificial banana smell. it’s smelling more like banana bread now.
First sip and all I get is strong black base eek. Let’s see if this changes as it cools… I’m getting some artificial banana taste and that’s it.

I received this in a swap from Darby. White chocolate is my fav type of chocolate, so creamy so sweet, delicious.
This is definitely one spicy smelling chai, that is however the only smell I am getting. I love the white chips in it. I had to add a few more because I just knew that the few small chips wouldn’t make enough of a white chocolate difference, so I did.
Upon pouring it has a very creamy like colour ohh should be yummy.
Wow this has to be the spiciest chai I have tasted, one of the spices comes out at the front I just can’t quite place it, maybe nutmeg. It’s also creamy I think from my added white chips, although I am getting no white chocolate flavour. Perhaps a little honey would bring it out. As this tea sits and cools slightly it looses the creaminess and becomes bitter. Unfortunetly I can’t chug a hot cup of tea.

I received this in a swamp from tigress_al & finally got around to trying it this morning.
The dry notes smell lightly of strawberry. It steeps to a nice red/orange colour. And tastes yummy, like a very ripe strawberry, with a touch of white tea base. I love strawberry & love this tea. I had it iced of course.

I received this from Azzrian as a thank you from our iced tea swap. Too kind.
The dry notes smells lightly and sweetly of strawberry and keeps this as it steeps.
It tastes creamy and slightly sweet I’m guessing from the strawberries although I can’t really taste them. oh wait… it has cooled and I’m getting a tart taste hmmm maybe bitter (I of course forgot about it steeping because I was too busy digging through my new tea package).
I am enjoying this tea even without the strawberry flavour.
Two cups of black tea this morning I think I am going to be one wired girl this afternoon.

azzrian how much come in the southern boy teas ?

Azzrian

I believe enough to make 2 quarts but you can resteep them so a total of 4 quarts maybe more if you find you can re-steep again.

this is another tea I got from softrevolution.
If everything continues like it smells it’s going to be fantastic. This has to be the yummiest smelling mint chocolate tea I have smelt. The peppermint is fantastic and the chocolate smells like real chocolate, not artificial like many others.
Upon being steeped it looses most of the chocolate smell… oh no :( it tastes nicely pepperminty however the chocolate barely comes threw at the end. as it cools a bit more the chocolate comes through a little more. However I didn’t want my tea to cool today it’s a chilly morning.
Overall I wish there was some more chocolate flavour to it. but still very enjoyable.

oops I forgot about my strawberry zabaglione that is steeping

how much tea comes with the southern boy teas?

tattooed_tea

I’m not certain as I haven’t ordered any but I think it’s two tea bags that each make an 8 quart jug.

Helena

try adding a bit of milk I find that helps

wiicked

thanks so much tattoed
wait are they in tea bags?

tattooed_tea

Wiicked they are to make for easy steeping. They are regular 52Teas quality though, loose leaf, not your typical bagged tea.

wiicked

ok cool
thanks so much

I received this sample from softrevolution. I was expecting a delicious nutty tea. upon smelling this tea I realized it smells exactly like apple crisp. once steeped it keeps this scent. if it tastes anything like it smells I can’t wait to try it. first sip and woah… this tastes exactly like my mom’s apple crisp it is too delicious for words. the only thing it’s missing is the occasional crunch of oatmeal. otherwise I swear I am eating apple crisp.
I am pleasantly surprised with the unexpected flavour and this will definitely be added to my permanent collection, especially for the fall!
thank you so much softrevolution!!!
