drank Cherry Cola by The NecessiTeas
3947 tasting notes

Yesterday I had a sore throat. That went away but all last night I had a dry throat. Then now I’m a bit wheezy and stuffed. Nbd but my tastebuds may or may not be a bit off. I say that because in smell this is 100% cherry cola but flavorwise it is a lot more cherry and a touch medicinal.

drank Coconut Lychee by The NecessiTeas
3947 tasting notes

Creamy and floral, this nicely captured the flavors of both coconut and lychee. However, its potent and has a surprisingly thick mouthfeel. I enjoyed it but don’t think it will be a cupboard staple.

drank Peanut Butter Cup by The NecessiTeas
9650 tasting notes

mmmmmmm pulled this one out to have as a latte tonight since VariaTEA gave me enough of a sample for that as well. Latte really brings out the peanut butter aspect of this one imo. It’s still not as intense as a reese, but it’s delicious! Even though i wouldn’t want this all the time, it’s an interesting tea and pretty good! thanks VariaTEA!

Tried this one out today as a regular tea – Latte tomorrow maybe :) I kept putting this one off as i wasn’t sure how i felt about a peanut butter tea. I’ve had weirder but this seemed somehow….different. That being said, it does taste like the memory of a peanut butter cup. IE. not as intense in the PB and Choc department, but for sure comes across with that flavouring and taste. Looking forward to trying it as a latte!

I made this as a chocolate milk latte and it feels very watered down. This could be because of my measuring, or lack thereof. It could also be the tea which has peppermint chocolate pieces in it as those melt and create a bit of oil. If I’m being honest, this isn’t bad perse but it’s similar to Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA and honestly I’d prefer that one.

Pillows of snow and ice, pillows of mint and chocolate. Potatoes, patatoes.

Interesting how minty tea seems ideal for this weather.

Sil

gross. no thanks, so tired of mint teas ha

I made this chocolate milk latte probably 3 hours ago along with another tea which I was trying to review for Sororitea Sisters. However, my mom had other plans because the dogs were in her room and for some reason she kept calling me in to her room if they needed anything rather than just walking the two steps from her computer to do it herself. As a result, I am only getting to it now.

I don’t know if it is because this is cold or if its the tea itself but I don’t love this. I get banana but it is more banana chips than actual banana and when combined with the chocolate or maybe the base tea, it comes off a touch bitter like dark chocolate. I will wait to rate this another time because I just don’t know if this is suffering from neglect or if I actually don’t love this tea so much.

I made this last night and then tonight and both nights it got cold before I got to it. In this tea’s case it is particularly bad as this is one I was supposed to review for Sororitea Sisters. However, probably for the best I didn’t because the few sips I did have of this, I didn’t really love. I am a big fan of necessiteas but this collection of flavors almost comes off like lotion to me.

Sil

gross

drank Cherry Cola by The NecessiTeas
9650 tasting notes

meh. No matter what i try to do with this one, it never seems to work. Today i got a little bit more cola, but in the end it really is just a whole lot of rooibos. oh well…never know until you try!

Lexie Aleah

Have you tried it as a tea pop with some agave?

Sil

i would if i did tea pops, but they aren’t really my thing heh

this is more like cherry rooibos. I’ll have to try dropping the temperature and see what happens.

drank Limoncello by The NecessiTeas
9650 tasting notes

this one was a little better today made it while playing games and making cookies. We did a slow cooker pot roast as well given the weather so it’s been a warm, comfy, cozy weekend. Also, the toys we bought doggo as a birthday present were a bit hit – helped keep her from going crazy being stuck inside a little more than we like. One’s a giraffe with tennis balls for feet and the other is a spiky turtle that squeaks. She’s in love with both of them…hasn’t stopped playing with them all weekend haha.

this tea is still too light in terms of flavour for me to be limoncello….but it’s a half decent lemongrass tea. haha thanks for the share VariaTEA!

29. Twenty-Nine. What.

CrowKettle

I want your cupboard size and quality.

Evol Ving Ness

You know, for normal people, twenty-nine teas are still really a lot of teas for one person to have.

Lexie Aleah

What type of cookies did you make? I also buy my dogs B-Day gifts and usually make them a dog birthday cake. I bet the squeaky toy got annoying real fast though.

CrowKettle

Evol Ving Ness, let’s not go there XD

Sil

pl 29 teas is awful…especially since i have the wrong break down: 5 samples; 13 puerh; 11 teas (only 3 of which are straight blacks and no herbals)

Sil

cookies are basically chocolate chip, but there are oats and rice krispies in them… Ruby is good with her squeaky toys – they’re her favourite but we probably squeak them more than her to watch the reaction haha

Evol Ving Ness

And thus, we will continue to enable each other and keep each other’s dirty secrets. :)

But seriously, Sil. Very impressive.

real limoncello is intense. This is not. Going to play with this one a little more before landing on how i feel about it.

pulled this one out of the giant bag of samples from VariaTEA. I haven’t bothered to organise them, just dumped them all back in the bag after adding them to my cupboard. This way it’s a more random drinking experience until they are a little smaller in number haha. If they were organised, i’d have been able to compare this one with the bluebird version, but it wasn’t meant to be. this one comes across as something i’ve had before…sort of generically apple with some hints of cinnamon, a little vanilla and a bit of sweet fruitness coming through. I can see myself drinking this more in winter vs now that it’s spring. Thanks VariaTEA!

drank Banana Fluffernutter by The NecessiTeas
9650 tasting notes

this tea makes me angry every time i have it lol. it’s not really banana…not really marshmallow….it’s just this weird sort of i dunno what to call it tea to me. I’ve tried to boiling water…cooler water….standing on 1 foot….no matter how i make it, it’s just…“whatever” bah!

Evol Ving Ness

disappointing.

Fjellrev

I can’t help but laugh at the fact that a tea actually makes you angry haha.

Evol Ving Ness

sad because we all had high hopes for this one.

Sil

@Fjellrev – yeah well, what can i say? it’s SUPPOSED to work!

still undecided about this one. It’s kinda just strangely creamy versus anything else…maybe a little vanilla today but that’s about it. so odd.

Finished this one off tonight after my run and it was delicious. Just the right balance of fruity mango goodness without being a cloying sweet “fruit tea.” Thanks VariaTEA!

Unless i mixed up the two teas i had tonight, this one was the one that hit the spot. I’ve got a bit more of this to try so i’ll be able to double check later on haha. a refreshing brew that was sweet and tropical without being overpowering with too many things going on.

drank Tropical Twist by The NecessiTeas

this one sounds like it would be up my alley but it really wasn’t. Something about the melange of flavours just didn’t work when i brewed this up tonight. I can’t even place why it didn’t work.

drank Island Mango by The NecessiTeas

I made this tea as a tea lemonade. I am feeling much better but I still have a cough and the sniffles and because of that congestion, it seems I still have messed up tastebuds. So more than anything, this tastes like a sweet lemonade. I maybe get some candied pineapple and the occasional mango note (though that could also be from the mango I ate while drinking this). It’s good but I know there is more to this tea and I am sad that my tastebuds just don’t want to work.

Sil

i miss tea lol

VariaTEA

I have teas for you
