682 Tasting Notes
From the Teeny Tiny Tea Box!
This tea smells like just your average black tea. There were tiny nodes of… tan stuff in it? It looked like tiny chunks of brown sugar or something.
Steeping it, it smells like a bright black tea. No irish cream smell.
Tasting it… blech. I don’t know??? Is this how Irish Cream is supposed to smell like? Maybe it’s just gone bad since I’ve had it for so long D:
Reading all the other notes, I think my tea has just gone bad. Darn. I wish I drank it when I got it!
I’ve never had Irish Cream before, but I did have the chance to try it a couple months ago! I took a class called Wines, Beers and Spirits where we mainly learned about the process of making wines and different wines and all. Of the 20 meetings we had, 18 of them was wine related, 1 day for beer, and 1 day for spirits. Spirits day we had 9 different ones and they were in teeny tiny little cups. Probably not even 1/2 an oz of each spirit, but by the end, I was gone hahaha. IT WAS ALL FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES OKAY. But at the end, my professor told us about other stuff and he brought out a thing of Bailey’s and all the people who wanted to could get a taste of Bailey’s, but I opted out bc I couldn’t hold that much alcohol in my body ahha.
I’m a lightweight okay. I’m like 5 foot 2, weighing 110 pounds, and I always just limit myself to 1 drink whenever I go out with my friends, and that’s probably just once a month. So yes, very much a lightweight ahhaha.
I’m legit on a tea streak. Three cups and it’s just half past noon?! Ahh I love tea tons :)
This is just your usual black tea. Nothing too special.
I think I added too much sugar though, but it’s still pretty yummy!
Thank you tons to TeaNTees for sending this my way!
ALSO sorta pointless since I haven’t been on in forever and I’m sure none of you missed my pointless posts about life, buuuuut it was just publicly announced yesterday, I got the Lead position in my department! For those of you who forgot, I work at Disneyland and it’s tons of fun and I’ve been there for almost a year and a half now. I decided to apply for Lead aaaand they announced everyone yesterday. I’m quite chuffed :)
Because of my Cashew Turtle from 52teas earlier, that got me to a very chocolate mood and I pulled this tea out!
For some reason it smelled like green tea leaves?? It was so weird. But it tasted like nice chocolate fudge! I got some hints of butter in it, as well as the lovely smooth chocolate taste :)
Flavors: Butter, Chocolate, Cream
Wam Bam, back to tea! I’ve been away for so long mainly bc life D:
I’m slowly getting tea back into my life and I actually forgot how much I love it!
Anyway, I got this from Sil AGES ago. It did have that old tea taste, but I’m not too picky and it still tasted pretty good with a bit of milk and sugar to help it along!
The chocolate and caramel notes in this tea was lovely. Smooth, not overly bitter like some other chocolate teas that I’ve had before.
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate
Ohh thank you TeaNTrees for sending this tea my way!
I love lychee and this tastes almost like lychee! The flavouring of this tea is super juicy and it’s so good! Lychee is definitely a bit lighter than this tea though, so that’s what’s throwing me off. I think if this flavouring was done in a white tea, it would be so good!
Yummy yum yum yum Yummy Yummy YUM.
Ahh this teas is lovely! I’m so happy I decided to purchase the “They’re Back!” Collection! This tea tastes so much like Blueberry Jam, but with lemongrass and a slight hint of pineapple. A lovely tea to end the night, mainly because it’s soooo good and there’s no caffeine!
Flavors: Blueberry, Lemongrass, Pineapple
From TeaNTrees bc it was supposed to be a small “Here I have teas, take some!” thing to a LET’S DO A FULL ON SWAP sort of thing :)
I’m drowning in schoolwork and I need tea to keep me company, so this one it is! Just a nice rooibos so I can sleep tonight :)
I got a lot of rooibos, not so much Cream Caramel :( that always tends to happen with me and rooibos teas! It smells great, but then it all just goes away once you steep it :(
I have no idea how many times I’ve drank this, but I’m drinking it right now :) I’ve probably had this like five times so far this year at least hahahha
But there’s this place called Cha for Tea right by my school and whenever I’m craving boba, I go here! So good, but a tad pricy. People already know me there and I always get the same thing. A large Thai Tea with boba :))
Super good! I don’t make Thai Tea on my own so I have this place make it for me :)
In other news, I OPENED A RESTAURANT TODAY AHHHH.
So for my school, I’m taking this class which is pretty much the capstone class for my major. Last quarter, we divided ourselves up into 4-5 person management teams and wrote out an entire management plan complete with forecasts and budgets. Now this quarter, we put those plans into action! Each week is a new management group, and each week, we get a different role. I was a server today and it was fun! We’ve been training for a week and a half and today was the first day we were open to the public so it was pretty fun :)
I offered to drive one of my group mates to her house so she didn’t have to take the shuttle, and we decided to get boba after class soooo Cha for Tea it is!!
