drank Rainbow Sherbet by The NecessiTeas
233 tasting notes

Big no from me. I kinda got some of the sherbet flavors on the aftertaste a little bit. But that was after I fought through all of the bitterness of the green tea along with what tastes like an acrid rose petal flavor. I just dumped out a full tea pot.

Flavors: Bitter, Flowers, Lime

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

Not leaving a rating because this is an older sample which may have lost its flavor due to improper storage. That being said, I didn’t get any marshmallow from this: just a strong, astringent black tea with a hint of toasted rice.

Flavors: Astringent, Toasted Rice

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

This has cold brewed for so long and it tastes pretty accurately like an orange creamsicle. Thanks Sil!

drank S'mores by The NecessiTeas
3654 tasting notes

I have been on a bit of S’mores kick this week after visiting this chocolate shop that does dipped ice cream cones. I got a S’mores cone and it was ah-mazing!! Soo good. Look at it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BYW7iHCFWxQ/?taken-by=rachel12610 I have since been to that shop 2 more times this week since people have wanted to try it.

Since I think I should probably lay off the ice cream for a few days at least, I figured I could get my S’mores fix some other way and luckily Sil was kind enough to share some of this tea for me to try.

I made it hot but ended up watching a movie and getting distracted so it is cold now which is a bit sad as I imagine this would have been good before. That is not to say it is not good now because it is, I just think hot might have suited the flavor better.

This is a little bit smokey and has a chocolate flavor from the malty base but also from the bits of chocolate (carob?) in the blend. There is also definite marshmallow here. It is lacking the graham crackers which is kinda sad but it still makes for a pretty good cuppa. Thank you Sil!

I’ve got lots if you run out of some to play with

I am salivating just looking at that picture.

Thanks Sil. I think I need to work on drinking the teas I have first though lol.

And Fjellrev, trust me, it tastes even better than it looks.

fjellrev – as always, happy to send some to you if you ever want to try anything from my cupboard

Really enjoyed this one too. Not quite what the name led me to believe, but a really nice cup.

Thanks, VariaTEA.

This may have been the first of the Necessi Teas samples I tried. I liked it. I liked it a lot. And as I kept trying others, I knew that I will be making an order with them at some point because their teas are yum. I do detect some sort of trademark flavour among them.

Here, I recall vanilla, custard, and the slightest hint of cinnamon. Just up my alley.

Thanks for this one, VariaTEA. I am a fan.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Custard, Vanilla

drank Banana Split by The NecessiTeas
510 tasting notes

This sample has been kicking around my desk drawer at work for months now; I think it came from a swap with Sophia. I finally brewed it up today as a little afternoon pick-me-up and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it! Despite the age of the sample, the flavor remains strong. And it’s a true banana flavor: sweet and ripe and not at all artificial. I’m also picking up on some strawberry. No chocolate, but that’s okay…the banana/strawberry combination is delicious and combined with a nice smooth rooibos base, it’s a great little treat! This one may be finding its way back into my cupboard at some point.

Flavors: banana, Strawberry, Sweet

Noms. Need to hydrate a little more today given the temperature, humidity and the Run this morning. ugh. Pulled this one out and made it hot, to drink it cold haha. I won’t need to restock this one but it’s been fun to try out.

this.smells.amazing. I think i’ve somehow made it my mission to find the perfect orange creamsicle tea. This one is pretty decent. I wish there were less marshmallows because even though i like them – they make this feel more like orange marshmallo tea instead of creamsicle. Again, like pineapple mimosa, i preferred the cooled brew of this over the hot, though both weren’t half bad. I’ll need to add a tiny bit of sguar to the next cup i make to see if that makes the orange flavour pop more :)

So apparently the way to drink this is with a tiny bit of sweetener. It makes the pineapple aspects of this pop and softens the mimosa aspects of the tea. glad i tried adding a tiny bit of sugar today.

Had this one again today as a cold brew. I think this for me is mimosa but not pineapple. It’s tasty, but not quite what it is claiming to be. I’ll enjoy the rest of this but it won’t likely be a repurchase :)

Let me tell you, the dry aroma of this one is BOOZE lol. Not really sure why i got this one – i hate champagne. However i love a good pineapple and fruit/herbal teas were few in my cupboard at the time. Brewed up, the alchol/champagne is not nearly as strong as the aroma. I’m not getting a lot of pineapple, but i AM feeling the mimosa aspect. I actually preferred this one more after it had cooled down significantly. I had it hot, then went for a run for 30 mins while it cooled down heh. Want to play with this a bit more before i land on a final verdict but so far, not bad.

This one was super chocolately smore like today with the TINIEST bit of sugar added to it. Maybe it was a better balanced cup of tea this time. Either way, it was tasty!
