drank Cafe Vanilla by Della Terra Teas

I came home today to find both my Della Terra Teas and my The Persimmon Tree sample orders in my mailbox. Perfect timing on their part. Today begins my spring break. I plan to try all of my teas!

I ended up closing my eyes in order to pick which to try first! The cup was drinkable but I decided to add Splenda. I have never added anything to my loose leaf as of yet. This greatly improved the taste, to me. I am on my second steep of these leaves. I believe that as I begin to sample more teas I may have to revamp my rating scale.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Thanks again to MissB for this one. This was a nice introduction to black tea. I didn’t really get any fruit flavor. Maybe I am just tasting the black tea in this steep? Then again, I do not necessarily know what black tea tastes like. I was looking forward to more fruit from this tea but it is enjoyable. Especially after less than normal sleep.

drank Tickle Nose by Tea Desire

Another from MissB’s package. I get a taste of the menthol at the end of the sip. This feels a little bland. This may be due to eating popcorn shortly before drinking this. I am thrilled to try another chamomile based tea, as i have yet to pick a favorite. This one will be getting another try. I don’t want to do it injustice by having salty snacks beforehand.

drank Profound Bond by Beastly Beverages

My second tasting of the samples from MissB. I have recently discovered rooibos and have decided that I enjoy it. This was a wonderful tea for tonight, almost earthy. I have been happy to find that there are so many different teas to drink that are not caffeinated. I feel that I will be utilizing both caffeinated and un-caffeinated regularly.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Oh, wow! So glad you enjoyed this one. I found it too floral for my tastes (it’s basically an Earl Grey in rooibos form) however, I can see how some would just love it. So glad you’re one who enjoyed!

Ohemgee MissB! Your mystery package arrived today! I am so terribly excited. Thank you for so many new teas to try! I have decided to start with this one as it is an herbal blend and it’s after work :)

I think I like the smell of this more than the tea itself. The tea is also quite pleasant. Quite citrus-y, a good kick in the behind to jump start studying tonight. Thank you MissB. A wonderful start to the batch you sent my way.

Uh oh, was it really only a 51? I’m glad you enjoyed it regardless! This is one of my favorite teas.

I will be giving it another chance, all the reviews on it are so high! I must have done something wrong.

MissB

It’s really okay. :) It’s all in one’s palate, and that’s why I love sending out teas – because everyone has different experiences. I’d overleaf this one if you can, only because it’s so hard to measure out.

drank Jade Cloud by Rishi Tea
268 tasting notes

I went on a tea adventure yesterday and this is one of the spoils. i knew I enjoyed my flavored green tea but I wanted to know if I liked green tea in general. I also wanted a plain green tea to use with my peppermint. I have my answer. This tea is nice and mild with not a lot going on. Perfect for studying in the mornings before I am fully awake. I am steeping the leaves a second time. I am going to ice that one. I think this tea iced would taste close to Lipton’s green tea!

I originally got this because I knew the boyfriend really liked mint. Earlier today he put together a cold brew for it because he said, “It’s awesome.” We just had it after our dinner. It truly was! Wonderful flavor, wonderful body, amazing.

drank Sakura Allure by Teavana
268 tasting notes

While sitting down to study, I felt that tea would be an excellent motivator. It is 75+ degrees outside so I decided to experiment with the “double brew and pour over ice” method. It smells stronger, likely because of the extra leaves I put in. It is a very pleasing aroma. It is also a very pretty dark pink color. I do not care for it this way. I possibly did this technique incorrectly and will not completely write off cold brewing (especially since this northern girl doesn’t too well in the Missouri heat) but I think I will keep drinking this tea hot.

I just learned from the boyfriend that I have no common sense. I was supposed to wait until it cooled before putting it over ice!!! I will try this again very soon as I do believe that the flavor in this tea would be excellent cold.

drank Weight To Go! by Teavana

I can’t decide how I feel about this tea. I like the flavor when I put a tsp of this one with a tsp of my green tea (Teavana – Sakura Allure). The first time I tried this one on it’s own I didn’t think much of it. Didn’t really seem to have much of a flavor. I decided to keep it and give it another try. I made this one today on my way out the door. It has started to get warm where I live and I walk to school. Once I arrived at class hot tea didn’t seem appealing. When I arrived home I decided to pour it over some ice in an attempt to make iced-tea. It is drinkable. However, it still doesn’t seem to have much flavor, or at least a flavor I can name. I brought this one because I thought I would like the strawberry flavor. Sadly, I do not taste any strawberry.

drank Chamomile Citron by Tea Forte
268 tasting notes

I turned to tea in my effort to become healthier. I was starting to turn to pop for caffeine or a pick me up, especially while studying. I LOVE all the options with tea. I knew very little before last month and I am learning as much as I can. I have used chamomile tea bags on and off for quite some time. Sleeping becomes an issue for me once in a while, ever since starting school. I look forward to trying different “bed time teas” once these single steeps are gone. I enjoy the flavor these provide. However, due to the immense number of options, I would like to try a few more before deciding on a favorite.

I have decided that my next step in becoming healthier, is to curb my snacking. I have been looking for tasty alternatives. Today I happened upon a company called Graze. Upon signing up I was provided with this link, https://www.graze.com/us/p/KAYLAS29U . This allows anyone to sign up and get their first box, and if you stay with the company, your fifth box free. Neat thing is, you can cancel at any time. I do not mean to promote the company, nor do I have any ties with the company. I just believe in sharing good stuff!

Profile

Bio

After almost two years back in my hometown I have embarked on yet another adventure. I have moved, yet again. This time for a new job in a city. I can’t wait to see what is in store for me.

I am happy to have found Steepster. It gave me a hobby that I could devote as much or little time as I could during school and I believe that it will continue to help grow that hobby as I now have more time to explore.

I still consider myself newbie to the world of tea. I am still in the process of trying just about everything but have come across a few favorites. So far the only thing I don’t care for is coconut.

Ratings:

1-49: Never getting again. Couldn’t drink the cup.
50-59: Finished the cup, but won’t get again.
60-79: Buy once in a while.
80-89: Will get more as soon as I run out.
90-100: Must not run out.
