262 Tasting Notes


I iced this crazy tea as I didn’t really care for it that much hot, so I wanted to see how my opinion changed when it was cold brewed.
It’s good, probably better than hot brewed (it’s been a while).
I find though there is a strong note of dirt and wood.
Under that strong note is a mushroomy black tea that is sweet with hints of possibly malt, though not the characteristic malt you get with a black tea.
I like cold steeping this tea better I think, but its still not a favourite.

I liked this tea somehow initially.
I don’t know how… or maybe the tea was off this time?
I made the last bit as a large iced tea. It was so bad I poured it out.
Fake sweet peach with an odd cream taste

Glad this is gone.

Caramel chocolate brownie that was made with a sweet potato (you know.. the healthy brownies?)
It has an edge of bitterness that I associate with honey.

When the cup is empty, it always smells like ice tea powder to me after drinking this which is really strange.


This. One definitely has a lot of character!

Finally… Sipdown!
I hoarded this tea. Thankfully, I have the early picked spring from this year.

Definitely still creamy and delicious though!
It’s such a lovely sweet TGY filled with honeysuckle and what reminds me of mango sticky rice with mung beans. This may be due to the thickness of the liquor for the coconut aspect, but the aftertaste I’m getting for the 9th infusion reminds me of perfectly ripe mango. There is a bit of a vegetal broth-like note that reminds me of the mung beans. Oh Thailand. I miss you
This is such a delicious tea. I can’t believe the flavour even after all these months!

Had two cups of this tonight. It’s nice, but I find it a little strong on the florals side of things. Maybe my water was too warm? Occasionally I felt like I was drinking perfume.

I can see the potential it has, so maybe I should just play around with the steeping parameters. It did have really nice rock sweetness to it. I have hope.

I picked up 50g of this to ice finally.
I’m drinking it today instead of coffee, which has sadly taken over due to its availability and energizing characteristics.
I need to suck it up and just drink my tea all the time, instead of saving it for when I have filtered water only. Aka.. I need to be less of a tea snob so I can actually drink the tea!
…..Either that, or buy a water filter for the office. Thoughts?

Onto this tea:
Cold-brewed in the fridge results in an amazingly creamy lime gelato flavour. I honestly am so satisfied with this flavour as it tastes like creamy and sweet lime gelato.


Yeah, this one is sooooooo delicious. My suggestion would be to buy a water filter for the office!


yep. delicious. lime gelato and goji pop are going to be part of my cupboard for a very, very long time.

Weird. I’ve reviewed this and rated it but steepster said I didn’t.

Delicious as well when iced with a tea bag :)
I wanted something cold and sweet that tasted like cake, and this is it. Vanilla cake mix with sprinkles almost. And macadamia nuts.


I still haven’t tried this iced! You’re really selling this tea that way. :)

I love this tea.
So many cocoa notes and good malty comfort.
It reminds me of the last week my love was here before he deployed. He made me this tea every morning with breakfast. First time in a long time that I’d eaten breakfast, or made tea in the morning. I can’t function in the morning you see. Definitely a night owl!
Regardless, after a 12 hour shift, this is a lovely tea with good memories attached.


What a nice memory!


Lovely tea and lovely story!


Thank you guys :)

Sending good vibes to your guy. May he be safe in the middle east.


Thank you so much Mark. I really appreciate your kind words and good vibes :) You are very kind

I’ve been cold brewing this at work.
It’s sooo delicious, especially with lemon. The lemon makes the chocolate malt notes really pop. I highly recommend trying it with lemon!

I love this tea. Hot or cold.
Yummy cinnamon with orange and clove gets me every time. And the lovely sparkles make me smile as I drink it.
. I need more of this

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
