2298 Tasting Notes

I was staying with a family friend in NY for the eclipse, and they had this local tea, which I tried a cup of. It was a little sour/tart and thin. Not bad cold and sweetened, but not great. The ingredient list is a little too straightforward for my general tastes though.

This is quite fake tasting, but not bad cold. I taste a pretty even mix of peach and raspberry flavoring, but I would have preferred more of a fresh flavor combo.

Though I didn’t love this tea at first, I think paying better attention to my steeping parameters has really helped me appreciate it. I do sort of get a Biscoff vibe from this! I guess it’s not named Biscoff anymore, but my bag from May of 2023 still says that. It tastes cookie-ish and nicely desserty with milk and sugar. Not bad at all!

TTB tea! Actually, this is quite hearty and tasty. With sugar and milk, it’s not bad at all. A nice plain black tea!

drank Aloha Blend by Plum Deluxe

This is quite a decent EG. The strongest flavor I get is a banana, then I taste a bit of the bergamot. It could all be heartier, but I like it! With sugar and milk, I find this to be very fun and tropical – I’ve enjoyed my 1 oz bag!

drank Oolong Creme by Sloane Tea Company

Not a bad milk oolong! The oolong itself is a little floral. There’s some butteriness, though I would have enjoyed even more. It lasted for two quick cold resteeps as well. It was my favorite tea from our afternoon tea.

drank Masala Chai by Sloane Tea Company

I had afternoon tea at a restaurant in Toronto, and we got this tea with our first course. I taste a sweet cinnamon, but not much else. It’s almost a little fruity and a bit thin. It’s not bad with milk and sugar, but not something I’d want again.

I’m pretty thrown off here because some ingredient strongly reminds me of a Thai curry. That doesn’t mean it’s bad… it’s just savory and 100% not pumpkin pie. The curry association is so strong. That’s all I taste.

TTB sample! This seems to be chocolate cherry flavored, which I didn’t expect from the name. The cherry flavoring is one I see frequently and don’t really enjoy. The same is true of this particular chocolate flavoring. Together, it tastes a little fake and like alcohol. It does also sort of remind me of the chocolate covered cherries my family would have around the holidays, but I never liked those.

drank Spiced Pear by Nelson's Tea
2298 tasting notes

This has a flavor that almost tastes like bitter oversteeped tea, but it’s an herbal, so I wasn’t sure what that was from – maybe the chicory? I enjoy the spice combination used here, so with milk and sugar, this is tasty enough apart from the bitterness. The resteep was strong and similar to the first. I don’t taste much pear, just spices and the bitterness. I couldn’t really recommend over other spiced herbals.

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
