1723 Tasting Notes


My favorite turmeric tea. The sarsaparilla adds such an interesting element, and really smooths out the turmeric. I’m still really trying to drink through my stash, so decided to not make any Black Friday tea purchases…but resisting stocking up on this was a challenge!

Truthfully not remembering a ton about this, but I do remember that I enjoyed drinking through the bag.

More strawberry than shortcake. Slightly tangy, bright fruit. Not getting too much cakey-ness, more of a slight vanilla. Still a nice strawberry blend.

Still tasty and luckily the coconut hasn’t gone off. Creamy banana, definitely like a banana pudding. A touch of vanilla too. Always surprised that I don’t really get a coconut flavor- it must had to the creaminess and blend into the banana flavor. Still my all-time top banana tea.

Doing terrible with my sip downs this year, but maybe I can get to 40 before the year is out. I’m also starting to drink my holiday teas again- it’s nice and cool and I’ve been feeling festive.
A 52Teas advent blend from last year? Maybe the year prior? This is so tasty. Dark chocolate and candied peppermint.
I’m going to be out of town for most of advent season, so wasn’t going to get a single advent, but couldn’t resist the 52Teas offering. I was having way too much FOMO even before advent season started.

Flavors: Candy Cane, Dark Chocolate, Peppermint


This one was from last year’s 12 Teas of Christmas. I’m glad to know that my box is one you can’t resist! :) Thank you!

Opened up a bag of this that’s a few years old and it is aged. Really intense dark chocolate notes and super heavy vanilla. Loved it, but I think next cup from this bag I’ll use a bit less dry leaf.

Finished off one of my original taster pouches. It continues to be just as delicious as the first cup. Rich vanilla and creamy milk chocolate.

Sipping through my original sample pouch, as I now have a bit more to cherish! SO GOOD. Creamy milk chocolate and vanilla bean. This blend just brings me absolute joy.

Steepster! I haven’t logged a tea in 2 months. I got a Nespresso machine and became briefly obsessed with making fun iced lattes, so I wasn’t drinking as much tea. I was still drinking my matcha and some straight black teas, but otherwise wasn’t drinking too much tea. I’m happy to be getting back into my stash, with the weather cooling down a bit (finally).

As for Daphne, I was really happy to be able to try this blend, but there are others at Breakaway that I prefer.


Welcome back!


Thank you :)

Though, I’ll taste anything once!

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
