drank Fine and Dandy by Steeped Tea

Drank the last drop this morning. I’d never considered drinking dandelion teas prior to getting this tea. It was a decent peppermint tea to start the day. There was enough dandelion to balance out the peppermint flavoring. I believe that Sipology no longer carries it.

Flavors: Dandelion, Peppermint

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

Big disappointment as it didn’t change colors…. well it went from clear to pale yellow/green to slightly yellow/orange. So I guess it did change colors but definitely not as advertised.

The taste was ok but even steeping for a longer period of time, I felt it was a weak tea. In retrospect, I guess I could taste the stevia and a slight berry taste.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Maple Espresso by Trader Joe's
237 tasting notes

While I’ve not found a maple tea I enjoy, my Canadian friend dropped off some maple espresso for me. She’s unaware that I also don’t care for coffee. BUT I gave the tea a try twice and nope it’s not for me. Gonna pass on finishing the bags I do have and give it over to my coffee drinking husband. Maybe he’ll enjoy it and I can convert him to tea drinking.

Flavors: Espresso

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 30 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

I had not heard of this tea maker but a friend had commented on their Facebook page and that led to a conversation which led to her dropping off a surprise tea package for the holidays. Love my tea friends!
I really enjoyed this black tea. Generally I feel black teas need a little sweetener but I always give the tea a chance first. I added nothing to it and enjoyed this one morning before heading to work. I loved the scent of rosemary which is not a herb I would typically associate with a cup of tea.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank DeTox by Yogi Tea
237 tasting notes

In light of all the over indulging I participated in during the month of December, on New Years Day, I pulled out the random very old packet of DeTox tea that had been hanging out lonely in my “medicinal” tea box. Given how I felt after staying up most of NYE and having several cocktails, I don’t think I can give this a fair review but I will say it was “meh”. However, that was my opinion of most everything on Jan 1. I wasn’t wowed by it but at least I had a cup of tea to snuggle with on the couch.

drank Orange Dreamsicle by Steeped Tea
237 tasting notes

A tasty roobios tea that was gifted to me from a friend who over indulged at a tea home sale party. I love the smell of the tea leaves- definitely similar to a orange creamsicle and summer. The tea itself is very fruity and yummy to drink. While I do see the pineapple pieces in it I only taste orange and papaya with the roobios. Packaging says the leaves are good for two brews but I never find that to be true.

Flavors: Fruity, Orange

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

A random tea bag in my stash, I might have snagged it when I was on a trip at the beginning of the year. I enjoyed this tea and would pick it up again if they changed their packaging to eliminate plastics. I found it to be light, slightly nutty, and smooth.

A cast off from a friend who didn’t care for it. I also have to say, it’s not a favorite alone. With a little honey, I find it improved.
There’s a earthy taste to it, similar to mushrooms. I do taste the spearmint -which is not a favorite flavor of mine but I don’t generally dislike it. However, I don’t feel that spearmint and lemon is a good combination in this.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Lemon, Spearmint, Wet Earth

drank White Pear by Revolution Tea
237 tasting notes

Another from the Revolution sampler pack- and this one is a winner. I forgot how much I enjoy White teas. I really should pick up more. My stash is lacking.

This one had a lovely pear scent and was delightful to drink. The pear taste was clean and not too heavy. The tea was tasty and smooth.

Flavors: Pear, Sweet

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 30 sec

Bio

In the early 2000’s, my brother worked for a grocery company that removed items from the shelves and I ended up with a cabinet filled with random tea.

After I finished that cabinet, I started trying new things and exploring the world of tea. Still exploring, still learning, and loving this community.

I tend to take my tea with no additions and quite hot. Though often I find myself having to reheat my mug due to distractions. I’m partial to herbals, white tea, green, and blacks. But I really will try anything once.

Rankings:
100-80 Love in varying degrees
79- 60 Good, but in the friendzone
60-50 Ok, would drink if offered
49-20 Don’t make me try it again!
19-0 Didn’t finish!
