704 tasting notes

I’m relighting my Tea love, all thanks to my boyfriend who got me a super cute and easy to use travel mug so it’s so easy to bring tea to work now!

Got this tea last year and I only got around to drinking it now…. oops… Was so excited to give this a try since it smelled AMAZING but the taste wasn’t as great. Maybe because I’ve had it for a while but idk. Still good ish, but not what I was expecting. Bright christmassy smell once you open the tin, the taste gets a little lost and muddled. Not as christmassy as I would like it to be.

Woke up with a sore throat and I thought that this bit of “spice-y” tea would help. Yes it does and it’s helping soothe my throat, just not a fan of the taste! Also I currently don’t own any ginger or lemon teas… I should get my hands on some but it’s been my goal to get through my teas to at least half before buying more!

Flavors: Cardamon, Musty

Tea and Cards TTB

Ok I was saving this bc it smelled so good, almost like sweet maple syrup, but I let it steep and it just tastes like hot water with a drop of maple syrup. Bland and boring?

((But of course, I’ve had this tea for a while so it may have just passed its prime))

Thank you Sil for sending this tea my way *cough cough many years ago oops.
Hey, better late than never, right?? I’m finally going through all my teas that I’ve been meaning to get to!
Dry, it smells like an ordinary black tea. Once I poured water over the top, I got that dank, musky black tea smell. Don’t know if this tea is supposed to be like this, but I’m assuming it’s the age :(( Dang. Should’ve had this tea years ago when I got it! But it’s v dark and amber in colour. Prob going to throw some milk and sugar into this

drank Chai by Teapigs

Having this tea right now! Pretty good chai.
I feel like I had high expectations for Teapigs? But they’re all just average to me. Like they’re not my absolute fovourite tea brand, but they’re also not the worst (and trust me, I’ve had some teas that I just had to pour down the drain).
This tea, I appreciate it :) Prob won’t repurchase ONLY BECAUSE I want to try several other chais from different companies.

drank Jasmine Pearls by Teapigs
704 tasting notes

So I was v excited for this tea to come in the mail! I was sick a couple weeks ago and needed some peppermint tea, so I was all “What tea company have I not tried yet??” And Teapigs came to mind! Last I checked (like a year or so ago), Teapigs didn’t ship to the US. Well, they did but shipping costs were a pain. But then, I saw that they actually had the usual “spend $50 and shipping is free” deal!!! So yes. I got Teapigs and spent $50 on this, my peppermint, and a sampler pack just to get free shipping :)

This jasmine is okay?? I’m a huge fan of jasmine and so far the best jasmine I’ve ever had is David’s Butterfly Jasmine. This one seems a bit too week to my liking. An okay jasmine, but I prob wouldn’t repurchase. I’ll def try their other teas though! I have plenty more to try since I did get that sample pack :)

Tea rating guide:

94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai


Disneyland. Literally.
