990 Tasting Notes
I still have a few bags of Fields & Selects tea that we had leftover from our cruise last month. I wasn’t too happy with the Earl Grey I tried on the ship, but I only had sugar (no honey) and non-dairy creamer to work with. Yuck. Here’s hoping these will be better at home.
The tea smells fresh enough before steeping. There is a nice, light aroma. While steeping, it reminds me of Lipton or something I might use for sweet iced tea. I like Lipton so I may find this to be enjoyable as well. The tea bag is mostly made up of little particles of tea so I won’t try steeping this again. I’m actually pretty impressed, or pleasantly surprised anyway, with the flavor of this tea. It’s not bad at all!
This is incredibly comforting simply in the fact that it is a warm mug to hold between my hands. This is my first day back to work after a crazy and stressful week. It’s so nice to be back into a normal routine, somewhat.
This tea is one we bought on our recent trip to the Bahamas. My husband loves herbal teas and picked this one up right away. Oddly enough, the smell reminds me of strawberry jello but there is also a spice to it that is nice.

Good morning everyone!
I made a cup of this one yesterday but let it steep far too long so the resulting brew was intolerably bitter. I took two sips and poured the rest down the sink.
Today, I was a bit more careful and let the water cool down for a good 4 minutes and let the tea steep for only 3 minutes. The first thing I noticed was a buttery aroma rising from the cup. It wasn’t savory but more of a sweet cream butter flavor. The tea liquid tastes and smells of pineapple, but even with the shorter steep and cooler temp it still tastes a little bitter.
I was really excited about this one after reading such great reviews here, but I’m just not too impressed after having tried it. Maybe I’ll try steeping this a few different ways in the future to see if I can find a way to enjoy it.
Flavors: Bitter, Butter, Pineapple
It’s been a long day, and all I’ve really wanted to is to sit down with this cup of tea. It’s fruity and sweet and lusciously creamy. I can’t imagine anything better right now. I think I’ll have another.
Flavors: Dried Fruit, Fruity, Strawberry
