514 Tasting Notes



Thank you to The Tea Merchant for the generous samples!

This tea is out of this world! SOOO delicious!
Happily – it tastes JUST like it smells! Can you believe it? mmm, it’s liek biting into a fresh, still warm coconut macaroon. Not macaron, but maybe it tastes like one of those too. Amazing.

Sweet, coconutty and a hint of pastry. Beautiful white base – full leaves and bright green and white. Quality ingredients for a very high quality tea, what else can I say? Delicious!


This sounds wonderful!


It’s so SO good, I love that there are no blends like it (that I can think of haha), so it holds its own in my cupboard! :D


The moment you said a hint of pastry I was sold :) Added to my list.


What a neat flavour profile!

514 tasting notes

After discovering that this heavenly tea is making a comeback this fall, I made myself a double strong delicious pumpkiny latte to celebrate! eee!

Well, it’s also celebrating the opening of my teacup keychain etsy shop :D !!! When I think about it, maybe my shop is too specific… but then I think about tea drinkers and how amazing they are, and they deserve their own keychains dammit! There, all better. haha!

I have to say, I’m sitting here tonight and feeling happy and grateful for my Steepster family. I love this place we can come and feel so at home!

I’m also grateful for Red Leaf Tea’s matcha program – it’s allowed me to try so many amazing teas that I otherwise could not afford at this time – and I and SUPER grateful for this cheesecake matcha!

Holy tasty! Creamy and tangy and sweet – without the feeling of a heavy stomach afterwards. so… I can have as many cups as I want. I like that.

I will definitely be trying this flavour with other matcha bases, because I am in matcha heaven right now!


Yummy. :D


Sound delicious. I really want to try matcha. This sounds like a good first time matcha flavor.


Aw man. I really wanna try a matcha because of all the awesome reviews. Maybe if this one comes on sale I will order it!


Cheesecake matcha sounds lovely! I’m a fan of cheesecake :) I’m going to have to order some matcha from Red Leaf! Thanks for the review


I am super great full as well DaisyChubb! I love this place!


This is next on my list (I think lol)


Just bought some myself. Can’t wait to try it!


eee exciting!

Thanks to Jillian for giving me enough for one small pot worth!

I didn’t even know this blend existed, but I surely would have bought it up if I noticed it on sale! The dry leaves do not smell appealing – this could be because of the age of the tea, but it kind of smells strange!

No worries, as soon as it started to brew the strange smell went away. I brewed at 165 for 2 minutes since I was making a pot, and I have never made a whole pot of white tea before! The whole idea of using a pot is still taking some getting used to – I’m a one cup gal!

Anyways, I added a tiny dab agave and took a sip. Yummy white base! A creamy and nutty bai mu dan, with a hint of pineapple and coconut – definitely papaya and a little bit of banana for body.

It’d a mild cup, but just what I need right now to calm down my guilt for not taking another shift tonight after I already worked this morning. I’m just that sort of person though, I would have felt guilty if I couldn’t work it, and resentful if I had to work it haha! boop. tea!


I know that feeling Daisy. Sometimes you need someone to tell you that you deserve the time off. So I’m telling you. You deserve time off! Tea sounds tasty!


Thank you!!! :) You made my night <3

Boop indeed!

Now I know this matcha isn’t terribly exciting (it’s no cheesecake, right?) and it’s not one of my favourite flavours (I wouldn’t seek out a blueberry anything really)… um.. yeah it’s kind of my favourite matcha right now!

It’s always SO creamy and sweet and juicy and PERFECT! So hello little blueberry matcha, thanks for being you! :D


Sounds yummy! Need to add that one to my growing list. :D


ohhh this one would be good with cheesecake too. I think I have to get this next if you don’t even like blueberry much and love it!


YES blueberry cheesecake aaggghh I’m drooling


I have some but yet to try it! Can’t wait! :)

This was my birthday tea on Sunday!
I haven’t touched it for months, but I was definitely in the mood and wanted to pick a special tea to christen my new little pot!

It was perfect. Enjoyed with a dash of maple syrup!

(Here’s my new pot and matching tea cup & saucer! So fancy! :D )


Aww cute set. I’ve had my eye on the coral print set but don’t really need it. :/

Sounds like you had a wonderful celebration!

Hesper June

Such a cute tea set!
And happy belated birthday!!!


That is adorable! Happy birthday!


Happy Belated Birthday!


Super belated super happy birthday! :)


Happy Belated Birthday!


Another Happy Belated Birthday :)


Thanks everyone! I love it, any shade of olive green is my favourite colour :D


Thanks for sharing, love the shape of your new cup, very classy!

Had my birthday party last night, where I converted a few people with this tea! Yay!

Sadly, it wasn’t as tasty as it has been, simply because of the vessels I had on hand. They were plastic. Wow – it affected the flavour a LOT, but since my guests didn’t have any note of comparison, they were still quite impressed! I am happy for that :)

Today is my real birthday and it is kind of awful because I had a migraine last night as the party was winding down, and now today I feel weird and sick. Blargh.

I will have a blog post soon about the great tea gifts I received from my boyfriend, they are gorgeous and I am happy :)

Yay for tea, yay for new converts!


Happy bday I sure hope you get feeling better. Take your time but can’t wait to see your gifties!


Happy Birthday! You know, my husband always looks at me weird when I comment about drinking tea out of plastic or paper cups. I tell him that it affects the flavor of the tea and he just looks at me like I’ve lost my mind.


Oh… and I hope the migraine goes away soon. I hate them. I am glad that I do not get them as often as I used to. I think that the increase of tea consumption has helped! :)


Happy birthday! Glad your party was a success, nice recruiting work! Feel better soon and enjoy your gifts!


Happy bday! I sometimes get headaches from parties. I suspect that it’s all the stimuli. Feel better!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY (and make sure you have caffeine for the migraine!) did you by any chance have a bunch of chocolate?
That could set you off…although with migraine people it can be anything…weather, lights, candles, crowds…yuck…
celebrate anyway!


Happy Birthday to you!!!


Happy birthday!! Hope you’re feeling better soon!


Happy happy birthday! & hope you’re feeling better <3


WOOT! I’m so glad this went off well. Happy Birthday!


Thanks everyone! I think what set me off was a mix of the humidity, work stress, having our first guests over and dehydration! haha today is much better, and I’m enjoying many cups of tea to combat the next one!


Happy belated birthday :)


Happy Birthday!


Happy belated birthday, Daisy!


Happy belated Birthday!


Happy belated birthday! Hopefully you feel better today and celebrated with some birthday tea!


Thanks you guys! You’re the best :D

Cream of Earl Latte on this rainy day! Ah , a dash of sugar and it’s like a sweet, creamy, milky London Fog!

The perfect accompaniment to a supper of Grilled Cheese and tomato soup, enjoyed while watching Breaking Bad. :) A content moment!

Will Work For Tea

That sounds so comforting! :)


I’m on the second steep and it’s still just as comforting :) It’s a gooder!

I hate to be a total noob, but how do you make a tea latte? Just warm the milk on the stove? Or is it a lot more complicated than that? Sounds delicious, so delicious willing to admit noob-ness.

I now have 5 new matchas on the way!
Cheesecake, come to momma!

To celebrate, I whipped up a quick and tasty cotton candy iced matcha latte! Whoo that’s a mouthful, in more ways than one! Delicious!

It’s definitely keeping me motivated while I design the game I’m working on. It’s exciting! And with any luck, will pay the rent! Ah, passions. ;)


what kind of game?


Geez! These Matcha’s are temptin’


It’s just a flash game, I’ll definitely post it when it’s finished! It will be chock full of puppies :)


Daisy, that’s cool. :)

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.

The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!

<3 Daisy
