769 Tasting Notes

I re-stocked this tea before I even took it out of my “cupboard”! I guess I forgot when I sipped down my last bit awhile ago. Oh well, I will likely always have this in my cupboard anyway.
It tastes a little less caramel than usual today for some reason. But still so comforting on a cold winters day.

drank Weeping Angel Tea by 52teas

This is just an ok tea for me. I definitely get toffee flavour and I can see where the popcorn is going. But, it is almost a little too salty. Next time, I will have to add some sweetener and see where that takes the flavour.

I was really hoping that this tea would be in this box! I wasn’t sure that I would like it enough to order a whole bag. Well, I totally would!
This is peanut butter for sure with very light notes of chocolate and cheesecake. It is not sickly sweet or anything, but still sweet enough for my dessert craving!

This was delicious, the Irish cream is very light but it is nice. I didn’t get too much in the cheesecake department, but I haven’t tried it with sweetener yet, so I have a feeling that sweetener will bring out that cheesecake a little more.
Once again, another delicious black!

The cheesecake flavor is an aggressive one, so we went light on it and focused more on the Irish Cream. A little bit of brown sugar will definitely enhance the cheesecake flavor.

drank French Toast by 52teas

Mmm I love French toast. This tea is not quite “French toast,” but it is delicious. It has maple, brown sugar, and that egg coating on the toast. The “toast” is missing a little though.
As others have mentioned, this is similar to pancake breakfast.
Now I want real French toast, and pancakes!
Next time I will just have to drink it WHILE having French toast! Yum.

drank With Open Eyes by Butiki Teas

This is really good for a green tea. Blah blah blah, you all know that green teas aren’t my “thang.” But this one is really good. The strawberry is natural tasting and juicy, probably because I had 3 large hunks in my scoop. The toffee is on the background and the ginger isn’t overpowering which I like.
This was just what I needed this afternoon.

We must have similar tastes because I ordinarily don’t care for greens either, especially Dragon Wells, but this one is great.

It seems that I like a lot of the same teas as you!

drank Earl Grey by Zen Tea

Thanks for the sample Zen tea!
This was a pretty standard earl, very much overshadowed by their wonderful cream earl grey version. I very much enjoyed it though, as I would probably never turn down any earl!

This is delicious, creamy lemon as the name suggests! Perfect evening dessert!
I really like that it has honeybush as well.
This is excellent cold as well. I tried it cold by accident. I didn’t realize how long my cup had been sitting there!

Uh oh, something is wrong here, I only got cherry notes and not a speck of pineapple. Maybe I need to shake the bag a bit. I did get some upside down notes though, which were enjoyable.
I will try this again sometime after I have tried all the other tea I ordered on Black Friday!

If it helps, I failed to get Pineapple Upside Down Cake when I had this as well.

The pineapple is a lie.

Sil

The pineapple is a lie.

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
769 tasting notes

Honestly, I have been scared of genmaicha since I started my tea drinking journey. I am not really a fan of green tea to begin with, and then add in rice??? That just sounds too weird to me. I even got the best sellers sampler with marshmallow treat genmaicha which has good ratings, but I have been too scared to try it.

And then I scratched today’s tea…..hmmm….genmaicha. “Stop being such a stubborn tea person and just try it” the tea seemed to say to me.

So here it goes….. It is….different. I am getting rice first, then a hint of smoke, with subtle hints of marshmallow and chocolate. It is kinda weird, and I am not quite sure how I feel about it yet.

It took me a few cups of genmaicha to decide that I did like it.

tigress_al

I will try again a few more times before ruling it out. I have to give it a chance!

Fjellrev

I actually don’t care too much for green teas either, especially when they’re super vegetal or grassy. But that is what I love about genmaicha, its toastiness. But I think you’d have to try a plain genmaicha to get the true feel since this one’s flavouring may give you the wrong impression. But glad you’ve taken the step!

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.
