drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
1073 tasting notes

I remember liking this tea years ago, so when a bag popped up in a recent tea box, I was happy for the chance to try it again. This really is one of the better EG cremes I’ve tried. The flavoring is interesting and tasty. You get a little bergamot, but also the nice creme and some other flavor notes happening. I’m not sure I would really be able to tell this is EG without the label, but the flavors certainly combine pleasantly. The whole thing ends of pretty light, mostly just tasting like the fake creme flavor, but I like it.

This tastes like celery? I don’t like it. I also taste maybe something mildly minty and a stronger licorice. The main flavor is definitely celery. I had someone else try it to confirm. Bleh. Definitely one of my least favorite tea box finds.

HEEEYYY but it fits for the Veggie day challenge! haha

Yeah! I actually drank it a few days ago but saved the note for today because I don’t know if I have anything else that fits the prompt, but I enjoy participating (:

I grabbed a bag of this from a tea box, and it tastes way better than I expected. The fruit is nice and light, and the oolong isn’t really noticeable. The peach flavoring is pretty authentic and tasty. It’s juicy and refreshing – I was impressed! I wouldn’t mind an herbal version of this at all.

We call Revolution “Truck Stop Tea” because it’s the brand of choice on the beverage service counter down at our local Flying J. I liked this one, too.

I’ve never noticed teas at truck stops before!! That’s fun that they have that as an option!

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA

I might have tried this in a swap fourish years ago? Anyway, if it’s the tea I’m thinking of, I’m happy to see it pop up in this Valentine’s sampler. Hmm the flavor is mostly toasted coconut, which isn’t my favorite flavor profile. It makes sense for the name though! I added some milk, and it’s desserty, but not really my sort of thing.

I’m enjoying the fruity flavor of this. The quality of the fruit isn’t like fresh fruit, but more like dried fruit. It was really tasty before adding milk, but I decided to add some anyway, and I think it tastes similar or slightly worse with the milk. I don’t really get any kind of crisp or baked element, which would have been really fun, but I’m pleased with how it came out anyway. I’d have this again!

Thanks to amandastory516 for this sample! I get a lot of dried banana in the flavor, which is quite fun. I also get a desserty flavor underneath. I don’t think it quite accomplishes the fluffernutter vision, but I definitely enjoy it with some milk. I didn’t include any marshmallows in my cup, but it still has some creaminess, which I enjoyed. The rebrew is strong and lovely as well. I’d consider purchasing this one.

I like adding oat milk to this one. The creaminess rounds out the flavor nicely.

Ohhhh that’s a great idea! I’ve been pretty impressed with the Necessiteas rooibos options, so I’m going to have to make an order and experiment!

drank Dark Rose Tea by TeaSource
1073 tasting notes

I don’t like rose, so I didn’t expect to like this, but with milk and sugar, it actually is pretty good. There’s a gentle rose flavor along with a mild base tea. Really, it tastes like a million other lattes I’ve had before, so I can’t complain. I wouldn’t seek it out, but the cute little hearts were fun to try from a recent tea box!

The best rose teas I’ve tried wisely understate the floral aspect. Better when there’s just enough to highlight.

AJRimmer

When there’s too much, it ends up sour tasting to me, so I definitely appreciate the subtle touch!

This was mostly rose petals, which always taste sour and unpleasant to me, so I don’t really like it. The base is a bit peppery. I don’t notice any chocolate. Really it’s just the peppery base plus the sour rose. With milk, it was tolerable and ended up tasting a bit fruity almost. I’m glad it’s over.

drank Ceylon Burning Sun by TeaSource

Grabbed a sample from a tea box. This isn’t one of the more interesting straight teas I’ve tried recently. With milk and sugar, the flavor is fairly deep and decent, but I don’t love it. I’d prefer something maltier, but it was fine to drink.

This tea wasn’t great. I had considered buying 2 oz but am glad I got it as part of a sampler instead! On my first cup, it tasted generically desserty with some milk. I guess I tasted a little bergamot and a little chocolate, but really it was all pretty mild. When I tried it a second time, it sort of tasted peppery and weird. Someone else tried it and said it tasted vaguely perfumey. I’m glad it’s gone!

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
