6329 tasting notes

So after adding the book and Christina’s swap, my final count (not including this one) is now: 283. Definitely not the direction I wanted to go but still very exciting.

Anyways, as for the tea, all the reviews are so incredibly horrible that I was petrified when brewing up this tea. I asked my mom to just grab me a random teabag and this is what she brought me and basically my thoughts were “let’s get this over with”. I let it cool completely and braced myself for the first sip of tarty awfulness. However, this was weirdly much sweeter than I anticipated. It’s mostly just juice that is almost a little bit rose and a little bit… vegetable? Someone described this as “tomato” juice and perhaps it is the power of suggestion but I get it. So weird and not something I would want again but also not as bad as I anticipated so I guess that’s a win.

haha think of how many teas you’ll be able to add to your “tried it list” and it’s 1 cup! so easy sipdowns

OMGsrsly

Yeah, that’s why it’s so tempting. :D :D 1 cup samples! Try ALL the teas!

I always think of rosehips as something you drink for health, not flavour. They’re kind of meh, and I would never want them to be the primary flavouring in any tea.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
