The second to last of the Ette samples from Dustin. Very glad to have been able to try all of these blends.
The bergamot is definitely at the forefront, with just a touch of pandan in the aftertaste.

I’m working on sipping through the teas I have at work, so I don’t have to bring too many back home. This is one of them (I’m down to 2-3 cups remaining).
I’m still confused about where the violet went. After the initial first couple cups that were incredible, subsequent cups lacked any violet and became a bit lackluster. The elderberry/smoky combo is still nice, just not what I’m looking for in this tea.

Finished this off with a little honey and it was quite nice. I’m mostly getting candied orange, with a touch of syrupy date sweetness. There’s a bit of cinnamon and ginger as well.

Mixed the sample packet I had of this with the sample packet of Heritage Blend, for no reason really than to get some more sip downs in. Even with the over-leafed mixture of both teas, there isn’t much flavor. The black base is very brisk, and there is a bit of maple. But, no apple and no cinnamon.

Just finished off a 25g pack, down to 6 or so more packs. I love having lots of this on hand, as it’s really comforting and I prefer a drastically over-leafed cup. So rich and chocolatey.

This last week has been quite strange. I’ve been looking for a new job for over a year…transitioning careers is tough stuff. Very happy to say that I finally received a job offer at my dream company and I’m starting next week.

Soon after receiving that news, I found out my grandma unexpectedly passed away. So, any joy I was feeling about my job was completely eradicated. My grandparents had a huge hand in raising me, so I’m still in a bit of shock about it.

Life is strange and difficult.

Congrats about the job and sorry for your loss Amanda! :)/:(

I’m very sorry for your loss, Amanda. I lost my grandmother just last year and know how hard it is.


Congratulations on the new job, and I’m sorry for your loss. Life can indeed be strange sometimes.


I’m so sorry about your grandma, Amanda. <3 Finding and landing a job with your dream company is so amazing – I hope you’ll be able to celebrate when the time is right.


At least you had some great news the same week as the terrible news. I’m very sorry for your loss.


Thank you for the kind words, everyone. Reading tasting notes on Steepster is a really lovely escape, and I’m thankful for you all.

Prayers for you. I lost an Aunt Sunday too.


I’m so sorry for your loss Amanda, these losses are never easy and I hope that the success in your job transition can be something to bring a little joy.


I am so sorry for your loss! Prayers for you and family. I know she would have been so excited for you about your dream job!

This was a lingering packet from the advent that I just never really felt like drinking. But, I woke up with a bit of a sore throat, so it seemed like an appropriate time to finally drink it. I added a bit of honey, and it’s fine. Pretty much as average as a peppermint tea can get. Not candy cane at all. Just peppermint.


Yep, I just drank this one the other day and felt the same!

Still sipping through all of the Ette samples Dustin sent. Very glad to have been able to try so many! This is probably one of my favorites of the Ette blends I’ve tried thus far. There is a prominent toasty/roastiness. The pandan and coconut peaks through at the end of the sip, with a tiny bit of spice lingering in the throat.

Flavors: Coconut, Spicy, Toasted Rice, Toasty

Hello! I live in Los Angeles with my boyfriend and 3 cats [+however many foster cats I have at the moment]. I’m also obsessed with all things spooky.

I became obsessed with the world of tea through DavidsTea years ago. I love to try new brands, so I’m constantly on the look out for new-to-me companies.

Though, I’ll taste anything once!

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
