514 Tasting Notes


Tonight is the night! I am so excited! I just love GoT and can’t wait to see what will happen. From the rumors I am seeing more and more, I know who is going to take the fall tonight. Boo! But from what I’m understanding, that is part of the books as well.

This tea is a great herbal. Sweet apple baked dessert is the flavor and fragrance I got from the blend. I am a fan of Solstice Brews and this one didn’t let me down either. Brewed hot and brewed like an iced tea, just sweet apple goodness.


Flavors: Apple, Clove, Sweet


The real question is this, was it Tyrion Lannister’s libation? Sorry bad joke I know hehe.

Thanks Marzipan for getting this order together. . .This tea is amazing cold brewed. So so good! Sweet Fruity iced tea goodness. This would be great with fresh berries in it. I already finished one pitcher and have another going. Haven’t even tried this hot yet.

This is one peppery chai blend. Worthy of it’s name for sure. This would be a great blend to cook with, adding a kick to chicken and vegetables. Kind of reminded me of the spices you would get from Tabasco sauce. Enjoyed it but I’m not sure how often I’ll reach for it to to drink as a tea. I have so many ideas on cooking with it. Don’t think it will last long.

Loved this fresh herbal minty blend of peppermint and spearmint. Seems simple but I’ve had this sort of blend go wrong many times, leaving me with a toothpaste like flavor. This one tasted like fresh cut mint from the garden. Refreshing and Soothing.

This tea was fantastic. Like fresh mangoes in my cup with a green tea backing. Sweet but not overly so. Just my kind of tea. This is one of 3 teas offered in the May subscription plan from Just Add Honey Tea Company. I was pleased with this box (this tea and the honey won me over) and excited to see what will be in June’s box.

Almost done reviewing the line of GoT inspired teas from Margaret’s Fine Imports. It has been a fun project.

Today’s tea is an oolong/green tea blend with hints of jasmine. When this delight is still hot, all you really taste was a smooth grassy like tea with the tiniest hints of jasmine. As it cooled, the jasmine really popped. I’m not much of a jasmine fan. I still enjoyed the cup I had.


Happy Friday all!

This tea just called to me. I love Baskin Robbins Bubble Gum ice cream and I was hoping this would have a similar taste. It didn’t but it made a great iced tea. Cold brew is the way to go to control the hibiscus from taking over the cup. I would love to serve this at a tea party for little girls. . .unfortunately I only have boys. Dang!


Flavors: Lemon, Strawberry

Liquid Proust

I can’t like this… it clearly says for kids and you didn’t follow the title.


But I’m a kid at heart!!

This is how I celebrated National Iced Tea yesterday. Pretty nice blend, just could use a bit of a sweet touch IMO. The tea had the correct spiced flavor profile but I had to add in cream to counteract and give it that Thai Iced Tea feel I was looking for. If you like really spiced un-sweet teas, this one is for you.


Its also Therapeutic Thursday! Ever tried a tea infused soap? I hadn’t. . .


Mmm, Thai iced tea. What a great way to celebrate!

A floral tea dedicated to House Tyrell and the beautiful Margaret herself. Love that character. Even tho she is a bit manipulative, she isn’t so evil that you hate her. . just yet. I’m curious how her story line will unfold Sunday, if at all.

This tea was a nice white and green tea blend with a floral twist. Not being a floral fan, I did like this one. Maybe I like floral teas more than I thought. The best part of this tea was how nicely the white and green teas mingled together providing this refreshing and soothing taste.

Oh where to begin. Its been a crazy couple years. My life has completely been turned upside down but I’m very happy where I landed. I’m finally in a great place-Living with an amazing guy and his hilarious yet full of attitude twin teenage boys, and my two adorable kiddos in Central Illinois and there is no other place I’d want to be.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!
