drank Moscow Mule by DAVIDsTEA

I don’t remember why I bought this tea, but here we are. It doesn’t need any sugar. The main flavor is a fresh ginger. It tastes nice both hot and cold. I probably wouldn’t buy this again since it’s no better than grocery store brands, but I was happy to enjoy it more than I expected. Though there are lots of completely invisible fun ingredients in there, which is too bad. Maybe I can taste hints of them occasionally, but they’re really overpowered by the ginger. I would definitely just purchase straight ginger in the future.

I absolutely love some of RoT’s rooibos blends, so I figured this one was a guarantee. It does have that strong, clear rooibos taste that I enjoy, but it also has something murky that I don’t like as much. Maybe I’m not liking how the cinnamon mixes with everything else? I’ve been making pitchers of this tea to keep in my fridge, which seems to largely fix my problem. I still don’t love the flavor, but it’s refreshing enough to enjoy.

I never buy cider type teas since I usually find them all to be the same. For some crazy reason, I decided to buy some of this one during the last sale. I’m drinking it very hot since that’s the way I would drink my cider during the winter as a kid. It’s definitely better than bagged cider teas. I’m not sure it’s super special, but I am enjoying it well enough. I can taste the fruit and the spices evenly. It’s a good blend. After I finish my 50g, I probably won’t buy any other ciders for another year or two.

drank Sweet Tart by DAVIDsTEA
675 tasting notes

The main flavor here, weirdly, seems to be something like coconut? There’s none included in the blend, so I’m not sure where I’m getting that from. The red fruit flavor is tart and a bit artificial. I really don’t mind it. Not special enough to purchase again, but I’m glad to have tried it. It’s a pretty refreshing tea when enjoyed cold. It doesn’t taste like sweet tart candies, but it does taste both sweet and tart, so the name works!

drank Plum Pudding by Plum Deluxe

Just spent 30 minutes trying to clean up the latte my cat spilled on my couch. Sigh… This tea is so gentle and sweet. It’s desserty and so tasty. The green tea is unobtrusive. This really is like eating pudding. It has that specific kind of sweetness like a cooked dessert. Too bad I only had a small sample of this one!

drank S and S Green Tea by 52teas

I really like that this tea includes some green rooibos. I definitely notice it. The strawberry flavor is light and sweet. I’m not really into the addition of the pepper, though I understand why it’s there from the description. The green tea here is gentle and works with the blend. Some sips are quite delicious, but some are a bit too peppery for me. Some sips are almost a bit salty? In a good way, but also maybe I’m imagining it. This is an interesting one.

How would you describe green rooibos in comparison to red rooibos? I’m sure I’ve head it before but I can’t put my finger on the flavor. Red rooibos is so distinctive.

They’re totally different, but I love them both. I’d say green rooibos tastes light, sweet, and fruity. It’s a distinct flavor that kind of goes with everything!

Thank you! I’ll have to look through my rooibos teas and find one to try.

This tea wasn’t that great hot, but cold, it has a really unique, authentic sour cherry flavor. I taste no hint of mascarpone. Really the only flavor is the sour cherry. I also don’t really notice the tea itself even though there’s quite a lot in the blend. So I appreciate this tea for its originality of flavor, and I quite enjoy the taste. Not a favorite though.

I think I saved a bag of this from a recent tea box. It’s herbaceous in an interesting way. I suppose it probably tastes like itself, though I have nothing to compare it to. I had it plain, and it was nice and refreshing on a busy day. I wouldn’t order a box since I don’t go for herbaceous teas very often, but this one is perfectly fine.

Farm kid here … I loved the way sweet red clover smelled in the summer when they were mowing it. Might be worth a trial for the nostalgia!

Martin Bednář

Interesting… just red clover tea?

AJRimmer

Oh that’s so fun! I never knew it could be made into tea before I saw this tea bag!

The flavor here is really pleasant – just a bit fruity with some other spices in there. I’m having it a little warm, and it’s really nice. It’s just the perfect combination with this green tea. The flavor lingers in my mouth. I’m glad these green teas keep turning out well because the way I steep them is somewhat chaotic.

drank Chocolate Flake Tea by Teapigs
675 tasting notes

I drank this while moving to a new townhouse, so I didn’t have a chance to take notes as I drank it. I had intended to add milk, but really, it didn’t need it! The chocolate was light and pleasant. Definitely not the highest of quality deep chocolate flavor, but it was a nice hint. The black tea was tasty with the chocolate. Not nice enough to buy again, but good.

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two 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, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, 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. 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
