drank Darjeeling de Triomphe by Teavana
2786 tasting notes

A tin of this was a gift from my boyfriend, who knows my love of tea, and also my love of Darjeeling. So when he returned with this expensive brew from Teavana, I was eager to try it.
Meh. Its a perfectly drinkable cup, but its nothing special, and is rather light for a Darjeeling.
Still, I will drink the rest of this, but I wont be heading out to get it myself.

I like Vanilla Almond. I can really taste the almond, which is a flavor that I love. I admit that I don’t get a very full vanilla flavor, but its got a sweetness to it. Like an almond croissant! I like a cup of this in the morning. It makes the coming day a little sweeter.

This…… is not what I expected. I hardly got any vanilla taste at all. The chai is a perfectly respectable chai, but I was expecting some more oomph. I will try a longer steeping time next time, and see if that changes things.

drank Red Lavender by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Lavender! This does taste pretty much like lavender, and not at all like potpourri, which can be a worry in lavender teas. A nice, relaxing cup.

drank Rose Petal by The Republic of Tea
2786 tasting notes

Ah. I like this. This is a no frills rose tea. I realize that its a polarizing topic, but I really like rose teas. And this one is as straightforward as a rose black can be. It has a soft and (yes) perfumy aftertaste. I like this, but I realize that its not everyones cup of tea. But on a cold and rainy morning (in June! What up, weather?) its just the right thing.

I am about to commit tea blasphemy. I don’t really like Earl Grey. I try! I keep trying, but I never can really find one that speaks to me.
Lady Grey, however, is a different matter. I do like Lady Grey. The citrus just really works for me. This is a nice tea, for what it is (see, in tea bags) (or, at least, mine is). A solid, not inspired but perfectly presentable cup of tea.

drank Vanilla Black by Harney & Sons
2786 tasting notes

Oooh, I love vanilla.
An unexpected crisis after a very long day kept me awake last night much too long, and due to my canine companion, I needed to get up early. So with five hours of sleep under my belt, I turned to a tea that would both wake me up and help manage stress. Vanilla black, you never disappoint. I have brewed up a trusty pot of this, and it makes everything just a little bit better. Highly recommended, especially if you, like me, cannot get enough vanilla.

I adore this one!

drank Love by Pukka

I find this to be quite a full bodies camomile, if that makes any sense. I find most camomiles to be a little bland, so its nice that this one has a distinct flavor to it. Its almost a little bit spicy, which I like, but still a good, soothing cup in the evening. And the different floral notes are interesting. I particularly was interested in the addition of rose, which I hadnt seen before.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
