1137 Tasting Notes

I don’t really like this one. The flavor is a bit fake and weird. It’s not too tart, but its tartness also doesn’t hit in a very pleasant way. It doesn’t really have any notes that make me think smoothie, only sour orange. Milk made it taste a little better. I think I’d have it again that way, but it’s definitely not tasty enough to purchase.

drank Berries N'Cream by Cuppa Geek

The berry flavor turned out a little fake and chalky. Maybe it’s underleafed, but the black tea is a little watery as well. Unfortunately, this isn’t very tasty.

drank Orange Creamsicle by Cuppa Geek

The orange flavor here is so creamy and lovely. The orange is bright, juicy, and authentic. There’s something marshmallowy and fun in there too. I only have the advent amount, but I’d love to have more! I don’t notice the black tea or the rooibos really, which is fine because the flavoring is great. The resteep was super strong and tasty as well.

I love this one and Jaffa Cakes SO MUCH!

drank Spiced Rum Raisin Cake by 52teas

Plain, there’s too much bitterness, and the raisin sort of hits me wrong – it’s pretty grapey, which feels weird in a black tea to me. With milk, the flavors are smoothed over and I find myself enjoying it a little more. Raisin-y black teas aren’t really my thing, but it seems like this tea does a pretty good job at emulating what it’s supposed to. As it cools, it gets even more grapey, which I’m not loving.

With milk, this has a pretty nice, mild banana flavor. The rooibos itself is super strong and not the most pleasant of rooibos, so unfortunately it steals a lot of the attention. The coconut leaves a fresh, tasty coconut flavor that goes well with the banana. If the rooibos could be toned down, this would be a pretty great blend. And as usual, I wish the banana could be amped up even more!

I am pleasantly surprised with how much I like this one. :D

Ha yeah, I only have one serving left from my 1 oz bag, so I must have enjoyed it pretty well too!

This has a mildly grapey, maybe wine-like taste. It’s not as tasty as the other flavors I’ve tried from this brand, but it does an all right job at fulfilling the prompt.

drank Lavender Earl Grey by Cuppa Geek
1137 tasting notes

This is one of the best EGs I’ve had in a while! It tastes creamy and delicious even though I don’t think it has any cream flavoring. The black tea is smooth and tasty. There’s a hint of lavender. I don’t really notice the bergamot, but that’s okay. In the resteep, I definitely tasted the cream and bergamot. This tea is great!

drank Blood Sugar by Prince of Peace

Grabbed this from a tea box to try. It tastes like licorice, mint, and a too savory weirdness. I’m not drinking this for health effects, so I have to say I’m not the biggest fan. It was sort of unpleasant.

drank Buttermint by Twinings

Nice mint flavor with a bit of creaminess. They could get away with amping up the creaminess even more, but the flavor was pretty good. Some murkiness appears as it sits. Overall, a solid bagged choice from the tea box. I grabbed a few bags and finished them all in no time.

drank Mango & Orange Tea by Daily Club

This tastes about how you’d expect. It’s low quality black tea, but the mango does taste pretty juicy and authentic. You get some orange too. I sort of like it, but I only tried it because it was in the tea box.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
