294 Tasting Notes

I killed it, it’s dead!

:( WAY over steeped this, I’m getting nothing but tobacco flavours. I was really hoping for a delicious Pom flavoured oolong. But I went & ruined it.

I’m having a super stressful & anxiety filled day. So I needed delicious. But this is most likely my fault.

Aww, hope your day will get better.

Harney & Sons has a delicious Pomegranate Oolong. So tasty.

CHAroma

Definitely try it again. Sometimes I can’t brew tea well when I’m having an off day emotionally. I hope things have calmed down for you.

Thanks CHAroma, the last 4 weeks have been a kick in life’s proverbial balls. It can end any time now.

CHAroma

:( Well stay strong! Life can’t stay that way forever.

I love spicy things & I seem to be drawn to spicy & fruity teas.
this one may possibly be even better than Mango Diablo.
the scent of the tea is very familiar, however I still cannot place what it is.
you kind of get smacked in the mouth with the spice & followed directly with sweet citrus, fruitiness.
mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm so delish

ETA: had this iced over the weekend, while still really good it looses almost all the spicy kick.

I received this in a swap.
this cup was so clear it was quite spectacular.
this is so delicious. I don’t know what potato pancakes are suppose to taste like, but this is so good. you get the buttery vegetal notes & the hint of cinnamon & apples. mmmmmm I could drink this all the time.

Preparation

I received this in a swap from Courtney

There is definitely not as much coconut in my leaves as I expect, or as what other people got in theirs.
The dry leaves smell delicious, sweet, chocolate & nutty.
It’s chocolaty & a bit nutty, reminds me some what of S&V Almond sugar cookie, but without that stale taste.
I was definitely hoping for coconut, but it’s still mighty tasty. Bakey, chocolate cookie goodness!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Yay! I’m glad you received the teas :)

drank Bubblegum by Steeped Tea
294 tasting notes

And again I don’t listen & brewed this up with the gum still in it, when a globby white chunk floated to the top I freaked, until I remembered it was the gum…. oops

I made this into an iced tea in my new beverage dispenser, I ended up using the full 50g in this jug & it was only about half full. I added some rock sugar, because I expected my girls to drink it. We’ll see what’s left when I get home.

I have to say profile wise it’s pretty similar to Jelly Bean Dream, except I definitely get bubble gum aspects. So it could totally be psychological, but whatever I taste it.
It’s sweet strawberry followed by bubble gum. Yummy!
Strawberry wise though it is nothing like Wild Strawberry from my local tea shop, it’s more like candy strawberry.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
CHAroma

Why would they put bubblegum pieces in it if you’re just supposed to remove them before brewing? Weird. A globby white chunk of anything floating in my brewing basket would freak me out too! Yuck! LOL!

drank Wisdom Pu-erh Chai by Tealux
294 tasting notes

This is an interesting blend.
It’s fruity & chai like. It’s a much different chai than what I’m used to. It was a bit light on flavour despite my amount of leaves I use. You definitely get the berry flavours out front, followed by the muted chai spices.
Overall though a nice fruity, spicy blend.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

Interesting. I’m not huge into chai teas or anything but fruity chais, or earthy chais, or fruity earthy chais… maybe?

Received this one as a sample with my order.

It’s very lemony smelling, taste wise that lemon doesn’t come off nearly as strong. It’s slightly lemony & black tea tasting. It’s an alright tea, nothing special.
I was ok with this one until I got the cigarette after taste. Ick.

ETA: I had this again, I added some plain pu’erh because I found this to be mostly lemon. It was much better that way.

Alright so I know most companies say to remove things like jelly beans & gum, buuuut I don’t listen…. like ever, so I kept em in there.

Steeped this up extra strong & poured it over ice. This is fruity, strawberry, a bit tart I swear it actually tastes like jelly beans…. ok no it tastes more like red gumballs. It’s quite tasty.

Iced 7 min, 15 sec

Received this as a sample with my order.

It’s definitely mango smelling. But man that 5g was barely anything. Had this iced & it was super delicious, mango, fruity & lightly sweet.
I would have to do a side by side with mango madness, but if I remember correctly they taste very similar. I may stock both & keep this one for a night time iced tea.

I need to go pick these new teas up soon, before they all sell out or something annoying like that. Hahaha.

Alright third times a charm, my third time trying to write this note today.

I received this from Courtney

So it’s blueberry (ish- definitely not Northern Ontario Blueberry.) I’m not getting any cream cheese or Danish flavours. I dunno I was so excited to try this & it’s just meh.
I do have more on it’s way from someone else, maybe it was just this sample, a lil cross contamination perhaps.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

Don’t hold you breath. As I understand this reblend is mostly meh

Fiddling

I eagerly scooped up a pouch of this after it was reblended. I’ve tried it twice, and both times all I got was blueberry and no cream cheese. I’m hoping I will figure out a way to coax out the cream cheese danish bits of the flavor before I reach the end of the pouch, but I’m a bit skeptical.
