769 Tasting Notes

I prepared this as an eggnog latte, which tastes pretty good. This rooibos is a little artificial tasting, so the addition of the eggnog helped to make it palatable.
I wouldn’t restock this tea.

I find the chocolate in this tea is a little more like dark chocolate than milk chocolate, which I enjoy. There is a touch of astringency which I assume comes from the black base. The raspberry is a delicious pairing with the chocolate.
I always try my teas without additions first, but I think I might add a little sweetener next time to see how this changes the tea.

I will miss this sweet, creamy, vanilla honeybush. Especially as an eggnog or regular latte. It made a lovely dessert in a cup.

drank Sugar Plum Shou Mei by 52teas
769 tasting notes

I am finally having this tea, I was not able to brew up tea on Christmas day properly, so I didn’t even bother. I just used my mom’s keurig to make chai lattes.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the 12 days of tea, the anticipation of scratching the bag every day.
This tea was ok, light white tea taste. I am not sure what a sugar plum tastes like, but I am getting a plum-like fruitiness that is pretty subtle. I think this tea needs sweetener though.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYEONE!
I am drinking up my last carton of eggnog and needed a treat this morning, so I made this as an eggnog latte. So delicious!

I am not a coffee fan, but I was very curious about this mate. It actually isn’t too bad. The berries are kind of a nice touch. However, I don’t like coffee so I probably wouldn’t drink this. I just bought enough for 2 cups, which I am glad about. Maybe I will give the rest to my friend who drinks coffee and try to convert her to tea! Mhwahahaha

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

This isn’t too bad. Lots of sweetness, with a hint of cherry, and a tiny bit of “cake” flavour. I am not getting any pineapple.
I will probably drink my sample size bag, but there are much better teas out there. I won’t be getting any more of this.

Yay! Another honeybush!
Hot, this tastes a little weird. Cold though, it is delicious. Root beer without the fizziness, and with some creaminess like ice cream. I will add sweetener next time to make it a real treat.
I will be drinking lots of this in the summer!

Backlog from yesterday.
I am not sure how this differs from the original version and one day I will have to do a comparison. This was delicious though. It was a little spicy which I wasn’t really expecting but I didn’t mind it. The vanilla adds a nice, smooth creaminess. The pumpkin is light, and I wish it was a little stronger. But, I didn’t add sweetener which would bring out the pumpkin more. Next time, I will add sweetener.
The oolong is nice and smooth. So comforting on a overcast cold day.

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

Oh this is so good. I picked up on honey notes right in the first sip. The malty chocolate notes develop at the end of the sip. I noticed some nutty notes in the aftertaste and wasn’t sure exactly what kind of nutty notes I was picking up on. When I looked at the description, I saw pecan and decided yes, that is the note I am tasting.
I find myself being drawn to straight teas more and more.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
