331 Tasting Notes

Having a cup of this and it is still amazing.

So I just wanted to make a note to share something I learned today. Apparently The owner of Steven Smith Tea also created Stash tea and Tazo tea as well.

331 tasting notes

School has been really busy so my notes are going to be pretty short until things settle down. So a family member took a trip to Seattle and was very close to a DavidsTea store. So I sent her a list of teas I’ve been wanting to try and she misunderstood and came back with 80% of my list all in 2 oz bags. So nice! This was the only one on the list that I’ve actually had before but not for a very long time. I should also note that I sent her a picture of the 30% all items coupon which she used to buy the tea.

Made a cup of this hot with a tiny bit of agave and almond milk. It was very good! Sweet but not too sweet and nice and almond-y in a dessert kind of way. The raspberry and cocoa notes added to the dessert-ness. (My brain is struggling and I’m making up a lot of new words.) I remember liking it in the past but never bought a bag of it before. I believe my grandmother ordered a cup of this on my first DT trip in Whistler. That was the trip that got me into tea.

I think after that I kept mixing up the memory of this tea with Jumpy Monkey since she also ordered that as well on that trip. I like this one better than Jumpy Monkey.

Sipdown!
So this tea is pretty much the same as DAVIDsTEA’s Mango Fruit Punch which happens to be one of my favorite fruit tisanes. This tea just has less ingredients. It was very good prepared as a Tea Pop.

Received this as a free sample tea bag in a catalog. Republic of Tea hasn’t been sending out samples for awhile but it appears they have started again. I wonder what that’s about. I’m disappointed to see that this tea is the same sample they offered in their catalog last year. They offer so many teas so why not offer something different for people to try? After drinking this I can safely say that my thoughts on it remain the same as the last time I had it. Don’t care for it.

FYI: I just bought a new box of this and it came with this adorable collectible altoid style tin. I think this must be a new promo for the holiday teas. Because I saw the holiday ones said they had a collectible inside. (Including Candy Cane Lane, Gingerbread one, and the Cranberry one as well) Super Cute idea!

I received a sachet of this from Tabby in a recent swap. I haven’t tried that many white teas as the ones I have tried have been too delicate tasting for my liking. I generally prefer a stronger flavor. This was very nice it has a strong enough flavor for me. The dry leaf smelled like Vanilla Comoro but after steeping it. The taste is quite different leaning more towards a creamsicle flavor. It’s quite nice but nothing I feel the need to buy. Apparently I need to seek out more flavored white teas to try. I didn’t get any grapefruit notes from this tea but orange instead. It was still very enjoyable though.

Flavors: Citrus, Cream, Orange, Vanilla

That actually sounds more appealing to me than grapefruit. I have toying with ordering a sample. Now maybe I shall.

Tabby

Yeah, this is definitely an interesting one. I like it, and I’m happy when Harney sends a sample in my orders, but yeah.
