892 Tasting Notes

I’ve been waiting a while to get this out and try it. Also, thank you to Angel and the Teavivre team! For some reason I have a hard time with raw pu-erhs. The flavor is always off to me but this one is delicious! It has a juicy raisin flavor with hints of cinnamon and pine. The second steep turns a little more savory/sweet with light smoke notes. There is a soft bitterness that reminds me of a slightly over-steeped green.
I’m going to do more steeps but have to go away from my computer for a minute. I’ll edit it later with the other steeps :)

Flavors: Bitter, Cinnamon, Pepper, Pine, Raisins, Smoke

Backlog! My poor little ferret is sick and I was up every two hours to feed him last night. This tea was a nice comforting tea to have for that. I found it in my sample drawer so thank you to whoever sent it to me. The main flavor was rooibos but it had sweet creamy caramel notes at the end. It was really good :3

This one is actually enjoyable. It has a strong berry flavor with notes of tart hibiscus. There is a little bit of bergamot between berry flavors. I like this one but there isn’t anything special about it.

Hello sweetie! This tea is delicious! It almost reminds me of earl gray with cream but it has more flavors than that. It has a lemony note that’s bright and blends marvelously with the cream/vanilla. Almost dessert like :3

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Lemon, Sugar


Sounds yummy!

I’m almost positive this tea is from Handmade Teas but I can’t seem to find which one it might be. I put it in an airtight tin and never labeled it.. oops… anyways… It’s gone! I used up my two teaspoons and made a pot. It’s delicious. It has a rich malty-ness with dark chocolate undertones and a touch of sweet potato. There is a hint of caramel and a light fruitiness to it.

This one is gone! I will miss it dearly. Marshmallow and that toasty rice flavor. MM :D

Woof! This tea is strong. It’s nice though. It’s strong in the gingerbread flavor and is accompanied by a smoky black base. It’s really strong actually. It tastes like a burnt gingerbread cookie with melted icing(in a good way of course..) This tea would be really good with a touch of honey and some creamer. YUMMM

Going through my tea collection today. Hopefully I can get through most of it. I want to clear out stuff I don’t love and maybe put it up for swap. This one is ok. It’s not one that really pops to me. I’m getting cinnamon and a touch of banana and the black base. It’s enjoyable but it might be time to pass this one on to someone else to enjoy.


Sounds interesting! :)

I found this tea in my cupboard today. Forgot I had it! It’s refreshing. Mint, light citrus, and just a tiny green tea base. I still like it :)

drank Seed Harvest by Handmade Tea

The aroma of this tea is strong in cumin. It’s very savory, too. Almost like a baked sweet potato with spices and herbs. It’s definitely a different cup of tea. I can taste cumin, fennel, and anise. The flavor is kind of like the smell with the sweet potato thing. The base is present with a sweet smokiness. I just can’t decide if I like this tea or not..

I’ve been a tea drinker for over 10 years now and it excites me that there is so many more teas out there to try! I think my favorite tea right now is pu-erh.

I love gardening and love trying to sprout new seedlings.
I love learning new ways to preserve food and craft something new.
I love being outside.
I have 5 chickens, three dogs, two cats, and 1 ferret.
I love anything “witchy” and my favorite holiday is Halloween.
