drank Lady Grey by Twinings

Was simply wonderful if you like Earl Grey but want some with less Bergamot bite.
Though I don’t like Earl Grey to begin with so I tried this instead, has a nice Lemony flavor to it, but still tastes a great deal like Earl Grey just lighter.

I was expecting more Pizzazz to it than there is. Tastes to me like dull Pomegranate

drank Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA
81 tasting notes

I think this tea does better in the container than brewed up. It’s a very pretty tea with the snowflakes, white chocolate and candy cane pieces and smells quite nice. Brewed up, the tea takes on a cloudy brown colour that as other reviewers have noted isn’t very appetizing looking. The flavour is quite sweet, a bit too much for a morning black tea I find. All in all, I prefer Santa’s secret if I’m looking for a morning black tea with a holiday splash. The black tea flavour is lost in all the sweetness of this tea. Still, it’s not horrible, just incredibly sweet.

Flavors: Creamy, Peppermint

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec 5 g 12 OZ / 355 ML

This tea is hand grown, harvested, and roasted on a family farm on the Big Island in Hawaii, US. It’s organic too. I find the tea to be very soothing and relaxing. It reminds me of my visit to Mauna Kea tea every time I have a cup. It’s fruity, sweet, and floral. I don’t recommend more than 3 minutes on the first brew, even 3.5 minutes is too much.

Flavors: Flowers

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 g 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Tokyo by Harney & Sons
1 tasting notes

Delicate, sweet caramel flavor that complements rather than overwhelms the bancha base. One of my favourite flavored teas. The first steep is a dessert-style caramel green, while a second steep presents mostly the classic bancha taste. This would make a nice introduction to green tea for a skeptic.

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation

Wow!

This has to be one of White2Tea’s most incredible sheng puer’s to date. I’ve had this tea since September, and only sipped on it a few times. The last time I sipped on it, it released to much tension in my body that it made me cry. This tea is beautifully complex, and makes you feel amazing when drinking it. Not only that, it taste like cotton candy! This is a perfect example of what a blended sheng puer should taste like.

I wrote more about it here…

drank Maple Apple Tea Cake by 52teas
8269 tasting notes

Sample from VariaTEA – maple yes. smooth base. apple….sort of? There’s a slightly fruity note here that i get occasionally, but not with every sip. So it’s like a maple cake like thing. Still a great cup imo, so i rather enjoyed drinking it…but not so sure i ever really got the apple from it :)

I haven’t been on this site in ages. I would like to say I have drunk tea diligently, but I have always put it off, to the point that I was forced to buy a new batch of hojicha because my first purchase was too stale to brew a proper cup. I’m oversteeping a cup of the new tea now…

I spend a lot of time on campus these days, and sitting in Starbucks is the most convenient since they offer wifi and functional wall outlets. I noticed a new advertisement for an iced white tea. It sounded delicious, and the other iced teas are pretty good. So I ordered a cup of the white tea unsweetened and undiluted… it tasted like watered down black tea.

So I asked if I had the right tea. They assured me that I did. There was nothing light or floral about this tea. I’m not a white tea connoisseur, but I expected something closer to their green tea and ended up with something bitter. :(

I couldn’t discern much from the tea bags they use, and apparently the iced teas are all brewed at the same temperature. Anyway, I was disappointed by the tea and felt like I wasn’t given what I paid for. This only added to the disappointment at finding out the sugar content of their matcha the day before.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter

drank Earl of Grey by The Tea Spot
55 tasting notes

Oh my I am enjoying this tea this morning. I woke up 6:00 a.m and got my cardio in and am at work enjoying my second big mug full of this tea. The smell has a wonderful vanilla and citrus smell but not over powering or anything the two flavors actually work together. I brewed this up with just one teaspoon of splenda and it was utter perfection. I have been quite pleased with the black and green teas from the tea spot.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Vanilla

Preparation
3 min, 30 sec

drank Winter Cabin Chai by 52teas
8269 tasting notes

Sample from VariaTEA.. I could use a little more cardamom in this one, but that might just be the result of the sample ratio that i received. This has a hint of smokiness – it smelled smokier than it tasted. It does evoke memories of a winter cabin – some days i really miss being able to go up north to my husbands family home. thanks for this Variatea!

This tea is simply divine hot (which is the only way I have prepared it). The flavors of jasmine and sugar blend nicely together with a hint of tartness from the pineapple. This is a truly magnificent tea, and I love how I am getting the benefits of a green tea while drinking it. It is a decadent treat. I’ll try it cold next to see if I get similar results.

Flavors: Caramel, Jasmine, Meringue, Pineapple, Sugar
