2271 Tasting Notes

Plain, this is really savory and earthy tasting. Since there’s a lot of chicory here, I added sugar and almond milk, and now it tastes similar to a Teeccino blend without much flavoring. I definitely prefer Teeccino. Now I feel like I’m mostly tasting the almond milk. This one just isn’t at all pleasant to drink without the extra help. I guess I don’t get it.

I’m glad I only bought the zodiac sampler because of the 12 teas, there’s really only one I’d like to have again.

drank Peach Praline Green Tea by 52teas

I taste a lot of peach here with a bit of nuttiness too. I like this sweetened with milk, but I don’t love it. The flavor combination is interesting, but the base was a bit stronger than the flavoring and sometimes contributed some bitterness even when steeped properly. The resteep tastes similar to the first.

drank Buttermint by Bird & Blend Tea Co.

This flavor is really nice! It manages to be genuinely candylike in its mintiness. Cold, it’s super refreshing. This is one of the best mint teas I’ve had in recent memory! It’s not as crisp and clear as it could be since there’s also that candy element, but it doesn’t get murky and weird like some mint teas!

TTB tea! I’ve seen this tea get a lot of hype on here, so I was excited to see it in the box. I like it! If I drank caffeinated teas daily, I would consider keeping some of this around. It’s mostly malty black tea, and there’s something biscuity and interesting about it. Sweetened with milk, I was really pleased with it.

drank Candy Corn Chai by DAVIDsTEA
2271 tasting notes

I got this in a sampler, and I removed the candy corn before steeping. I wouldn’t call this a chai. The spices were quite mild, but I do enjoy the desserty rooibos vibe. I’d consider buying some if it were available outside the sampler I bought it in. It’s interesting!

drank Butter Pecan Ice Cream by 52teas
2271 tasting notes

This seemed a bit thin during my first cup, but perhaps it was underleafed. I definitely taste nuts, but below that, it’s sort of empty. I’m not reminded of ice cream despite drinking this sweetened with milk. Once I let this cool down all the way and added some vanilla almond milk, it finally tasted more richly nutty like I’d been hoping for. The second time I had this, it didn’t make a huge impression. I just tasted some nuts and the black base, but I was really looking for that ice cream flavor.

As it sits, a more complex flavor comes forward. It was fruity, but also a bit spiced and interesting. The resteep might have tasted even stronger than the first. I wish I’d gotten a bigger bag of this! I’ve really been enjoying it cold.

This smells so gingery! I’m a fan of gingernut biscuits, so I was looking forward to this blend. The ginger definitely comes through strongly in the steeped tea. With milk and sugar, it really does taste like gingernut biscuits! The ginger lingers for a little while, though it could have been a bit spicier. So as usual, I wish for a bit more flavoring, but this is really quite decent!

drank Banana Peach Green by 52teas

This isn’t my favorite fruity green tea from 52teas, but it’s not bad! I taste more banana for sure. It adds a bit of a starchy quality to the tea. It’s all quite fresh!

This tastes like Forever Nuts and all the other similar blends. It’s desserty and nutty with some milk, but not too special. I’d definitely drink it again, but I wouldn’t need to buy it since other identical blends seem to just show up at my house!

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
