25 Tasting Notes

drank Lemon Chiffon by Red Rose
25 tasting notes

I was a little skeptical but this tea smelled so divine I couldn’t pass it up! It smells like fresh baked lemon pie or lemon bars. The smell alone makes this a wonderful tea. It’s not bitter.

And the taste? Tastes just like fresh baked lemon pie. This is a great tea that I think I’ll have to buy more of!

It took me a long time to determine what this tea smelled and tasted like but when I figured it out, every time I take a sip, I cannot stop thinking about Winter and Christmas.

It just smells like the season I suppose. It’s a really tasty tea that smells just as good as it tastes. It has a hint of coco taste and the cinnamon, while prominent is not over powering. Great tea.

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

This was my first experience with David’s Tea. I have to admit I was a little reluctant to try this. After all, the name isn’t so appealing but I ordered it so I figured I would try.

The smell is a little off putting. However, the taste is pretty good. There is a slight aftertaste that is not bad, but a bit surprising. I had a chance to try this warm and then cold as I left it after it steeped to shower. I’ve had the rest with some nice frozen yogurt. Yum.

This is my first Mate tea but I was pretty surprised. It was very smooth. The aftertaste was a bit shocking though. I found it to be a bit spicy; or rather spicier than I expected. All in all, not a bad tea.

Smells great when brewing. This is a lot smoother than I remember. The last time I tasted it, wasn’t so great. Maybe it’s because my throat is a bit irritated but it tastes pretty good to me this morning.

Very smooth flavor. Smells wonderful when you open up the packet. Fruit flavors are very subtle but it gives it a great taste.

I’ve never had Oolong tea before so this was my first try. I’m not a huge fan of the scent however, I am not disappointed by the taste. It’s very light with a nice smooth flavor. There is nothing bitter or startling about it. A nice tasting, light tea.

drank Peppermint by Bigelow
25 tasting notes

Smells lovely when you open the package. I believe I didn’t steep it long enough or I steeped it too much. At this rate I’m not really sure haha. Not bad but I expected a stronger kick of peppermint.

drank English Breakfast by Twinings
25 tasting notes

I was looking for a cheaper breakfast tea that still was of good quality so I decided to try this one. I’m pleasantly surprised. My first few sips were a bit bitter but I think I might have over steeped this one just a bit. However, it doesn’t seem so bitter now. Added a vanilla cream and sugar.

Twinings is a good, solid reliable brand when you don’t want to fuss. Their Irish breakfast is equally good, maybe just a little heftier.

I’m thinking about trying the Irish Breakfast once I’m done with this box. My cupboard is overflowing with tea right now!

I salute your self-control! (Restraint with tea acquisition is not one of my characteristic qualities :)

It used to be one of my restraints too! :))

drank Ginger Peach by The Tao of Tea
25 tasting notes

I was a bit apprehensive about trying this tea at first. Fruit flavored black teas aren’t really my favorite usually they taste too fake. However, this one doesn’t. I don’t really taste the peach. It’s a really subtle flavor. I taste more spiciness from the ginger than anything. I’ve had a few other ginger teas that have been way over powering but this one is not. This was tried warm. I have yet to try it cool.
