719 Tasting Notes

Had this a while ago. It’s just okay.
Boyfriend bought this for me a while ago, and he bought me a pretty large tin! Don’t have the heart of tossing it but I’ve been giving it to a few friends here and there. My sister absolutely loves this tea as a latte though! I find a floral latte a bit weird tasting but hey, you do you

Not quite as delicate as previous Jasmine’s I’ve had. Good but the Jasmine Pearls from Asha is better! Still a delicious Jasmine though :)

Backlog and sipdown.

Needed a tea that had no caffeine and this is one that I found in my stash. Legit all my tea is probs so old I really should toss it all… I’m determined to get through them all though! My boyfriend works in an African themed resort and he’s super into African everything when it comes to Food and Beverage. I told him about this tea and he automatically goes “Rooibos?” and I go “NOPE Honeybush” and he got v excited. Something new, something different, still drinks somewhat similarly to a rooibos though.

Flavors: Wet wood, Wood

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

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

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 4 g 12 OZ / 354 ML

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

Hahahahaha

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
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
