429 Tasting Notes


I tried this at work yesterday. I was expecting it to be fake-tasting and too sweet, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was smooth and tasty. The berry flavoring was authentic and had just the right bite of tartness that fresh juicy strawberries have.

Lipton is to black tea as Salada is to green- reliable for people on-the-go.

Flavors: Strawberry

drank Dosha Chai Rooibos by Teavana
429 tasting notes

A friend from work gave me some of this in exchange for some of my Kava Stress Relief tea.

Oh my gosh, is it delicious! It has pieces of real cinnamon stick in it. I taste coconut, apples, lots of warm cinnamon, and a sweet rooibos base. It’s warm and smooth and perfectly blended. Like liquid apple pie.

This tea is a game-changer for me. I was ready to write Teavana off as a bunch of overpriced hibiscus-lovers, but this made me reconsider them.

Hello, Steepster! My gosh, it’s been a while! I just moved into my new apartment and got the WiFi set up today. I also haven’t had much time for tea-drinking because I’ve been adjusting to my new job (tech support… strange career move for an English major, but whatever) and have been insanely busy.

I drank this tea today. I forgot how much I love it. Burnt chocolate, bread, earth, and smoky yerba mate. Delicious! I also love that it makes me feel energized without being jittery. And the black tea knocks down some of the intensity of the mate.

I just updated and fixed my computer, and it’s running so much faster now. Now that I know more about computers and what they need to run properly, I can take better care of my own! Hooray!

drank Eggnogg'n Tea by Bigelow

I know this is random and not timely, but for some reason, there are these teabags in the break room where I work now. So I tried it. In August.

It’s actually really delicious. It’s smooth and creamy, like eggnog. But it doesn’t really taste like eggnog at all. I taste warm cinnamon, vanilla, and honey.

I’d drink this year round. I mean it. What a nice surprise!

The earthiness of the mint counterbalanced the edginess of the mint actually quite nicely. This blend was better than I expected, but still not fabulous. It was… Surprisingly tolerable, I guess.

I’m still adjusting to my new workplace. I found a box of this in the breakroom and reached for it because I was needing something soothing. It certainly fulfilled that need, if nothing else.

drank Vanilla Caramel by Bigelow

Mourning the death of Robin Williams, big time. The man had so many demons. I hope he’s with the angels now.

I missed my Vanilla Caramel Lipton tea when I finished it. It’s a comforting, sweet flavor. I figured I’d give this one a try too. And hope that it makes me a little less sad.

I taste burnt cocoa, popcorn, sweet vanilla, and a hint of caramel. This brand’s Vanilla Caramel is much more dynamic and less dessert-y than Lipton’s. I like it!

Holy cinnamon, Batman.

I can’t. Just no. It was like doing the cinnamon challenge in my cubicle. The other spices were completely overtaken by the cinnamon.

One word for this one: YUM!

Sweet and spicy and smooth and oh my God I need more.

This is supposed to relieve anxiety and boost my mood. I hope it works. It smells sweet and chamomile-like.

I have no idea what saffron tastes like. I’m getting lots of chamomile, with something buttery in the finish. It’s a perfectly innocuous bedtime blend, at any rate.

I love this tea… So simple and sweet. Soothed my nerves about training tomorrow. I hope it helps me sleep tonight.

Hello! I’m a recent college graduate, trying to find my way in the world. I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field.

Favorites: black, oolong, rooibos, and white teas, pu- erh, mate, and chamomile. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg.

Dislikes: Plain green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
