This is a strange brew. The name is right as it does give you thoughts of beautiful snowy mountains. The creamy notes along with the almond and rooibos flavors provide a strange calming sensation. Strangely I don’t taste the coconut.

Starting my morning off with this blend. Still not a huge fan of black breakfast blends but this still has some enjoyable notes. Oddly enough the leather notes didn’t fully emerge until I started eating my waffle. Perhaps its the malt notes I’m just not a fan of. Even so it has some nice woodsy quality. The dry leaf has almost a smoky smell like a Lapsang with slight sour cherry notes.

drank Magic Potion by DAVIDsTEA
590 tasting notes

What sort of sorcery is this?! With a name like magic potion I knew it would brew up to be an interesting color but I didn’t think indigo. The currants and raspberries are the dominant flavors followed heavily by the Stevia. Honestly, the stevia is too strong to me, making this too sweet.

I think this one might be the one that needs a squeeze of lemon and it changes colour. And deals with the overly sweet issue.

I am worried about the stevia in this which is why I have put off trying it.

Even with the lemon I found it to be too sweet. I drink alot of unflavored though so I’m finding it alot harder these days to drink blends like this

Understood. Their stevia additions ruin things for me too.

drank Sweet Autumn Tea by Lupicia

Not sure of this one. It’s definitely a fall blend. Pumpkin and sweet potato shine among the flavors but the rooibos mixes with them to create a slightly weird flavor.

Citrus and green tea. Some like it, some don’t. I do not. Despite that this one isn’t bad, I just don’t like the bitter notes that some citrus fruit bring to green blends. The muscatel notes do a bit to tone the bitterness down but not enough for my taste. Even the grassy notes are overshadowed by the citrus.

This is another great Fong Mong Tea. You guys this company has produced some amazing teas. From the first sniff after opening the package to the last drop descending your throat everything shouts exceptional tea. The moment I opened the package and smelled the slightly sweet marine and mineral notes I knew it was a lightly oxidized oolong. And then of course you look at the tightly rolled, dark green leaves and you know, yup that is definitely an oolong. When the water is poured over the leaves it gives off a vegetal smell. Which is slightly amusing because if you pick up the cup to smell it 5 seconds later …. you don’t smell it. Quite interesting. It has a smooth mouth feel with mineral, vegetal, and a few hints of grassy notes.

drank Sencha "Omaesama" by Lupicia
590 tasting notes

You can always count on Lupicia for great green tea. It’s been awhile since I had a straight sencha and this is a perfect one to revisit pure green with. The liquid has such a nice, sweet grassy flavor. I bet if the leaves were more full instead of broken the taste would be even richer. Speaking of which the leaves are a most lovely green. Something about the way steamed leaves looks is more appealing then other methods I think.

Flavors: Grass, Sweet

It isn’t a good chai unless it’s nice and spicy. At least that’s my opinion. I had to steep this at least five minutes in order to achieve a good spicy flavor. Even then I think it’s a very light chai compared to others I’ve tried. The black base, I’m assuming Ceylon since its from India, has gorgeous wet leaf color and the earthy tones mix extremely well with the spices.

Mint isn’t usually my cuppa, especially right now while breastfeeding, but it does make for a very nice calming tea after putting the teeth 6 month old down. This is a very unique mix. The moment the liquor hits your tongue you get a bit of roasted notes along with the mix of spices.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

The fact that they had to use artificial flavoring to achieve this flavor just throws me off. The dry leaf has a unique jasmine and citrus smell. But the flavor reminds me a bit more of muscat grapes. It’s somewhat grassy with vegetal and marine hints. The jasmine adds a nice touch.

Bio

Stay at home mom of two kids. I’ve been drinking tea for quite awhile but figured now that my studies don’t have to reside on my job I can study up on tea. There is so much to learn!

Lately my tastes have been leaning toward unflavored blacks like Big Red Robe and Amba Thieves. I have a special place in my heart for greens though; especially Genmaicha.

I am a tea consultant for Tea Queens and Steeped Tea but I’m not good at pushing sales or home parties… But I do love to talk tea so if you have questions I would love to talk tea!
