drank Irish Cream by Tea Gallerie
736 tasting notes

Sooo this is the other tea I got in SD from this shop. The lady who was trying to help told me that this tea is a mix between their Irish Breakfast, another Vanilla Black tea, and then this Strawberry tea. Which seemed like an odd combo. But how she described it, it sounded sooo good!
This was one of the only samples I could actually somewhat taste since she couldn’t for the life of her actually brew up tea in the right way. She made me about 5 different samples and they were ALL extremely bitter. It was seriously awful. So so hard to choose when everything is made wrong and tastes horrible.
They had a lot of teas combined with jasmine there that I so wanted to try, but because the samples were all the same bitter/roasted flavor, I had to take a pass. :(
This one I felt safe buying though Since I love Irish Breakfast/Irish Cream teas for the most part anyway. Hate hate hate English Breakfast tea, but Irish…Irish does it right!
So anyway.
Finally got around to trying this tea while putting together some tea swaps.
Brewed right it actually was a quite light Irish Cream. It was kinda creamy and sweet-and had that malty flavor I love in Irish Cream teas! So yeah, I definitely do not regret buying this one! :D
But can’t say that I tasted all the other teas the chick mentioned in it. Especially the strawberry one haha!

Flavors: Creamy, Irish Cream, Malt, Smooth, Vanilla

Bio

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
