2332 Tasting Notes

Single bag from a previous TTB. This ends up a bit watery, but I enjoy the quality of the black tea. It’s a little biscuity and pleasant with sugar and milk. I would use less water if I made this tea again.

drank Beach Bellini by Teavana

I enjoy the mild mango/nectarine-y notes! It’s light and fruity without being sour at all. I never got to try this one when Teavana was open, so I was happy to find these bags at Target. I might buy more because this flavor really works for me!

TTB tea! I enjoyed how natural the vanilla tastes here. The base is okay. Overall, I enjoyed this tea more than I expected! Not bad with milk and sugar.

drank Decaf Cream by Adagio Teas
2332 tasting notes

At first, I quite enjoyed this one. The cream really comes through, and the decaf black base isn’t bad at all. With sugar and milk, this becomes a desserty tea. The resteep was strong too. My mistake was buying 3 oz, and I unfortunately got pretty tired of it since it’s a simple flavor profile. The cream just started tasting thin and fake to me.

drank Morning Sunshine by T2

TTB tea! This is quite hearty! With milk and sugar, it was one of the better breakfast blends I’ve had in recent memory! It definitely does best with a short steep.

drank Rooibos by Ajiri Tea Company
2332 tasting notes

This is a nice rooibos! It’s light and honey-like. I enjoy it cold and a little sweetened. I’d been wanting to try this tea for a while, so I was happy to grab a box from a shop in NYC in the fall. Now I keep the tea bags in my suitcase for travel. It resteeps decently well too.

drank Pumpkin Patch Black Tea by 52teas
2332 tasting notes

The spice combination here is quite pleasant! It tastes like a gentle, not spicy chai. I’m not sure I notice the pumpkin specifically, but I thought this cup was pretty tasty and interesting. High quality and fulfilling, as always! Perhaps the spices could be a bit stronger, but the balance certainly isn’t bad.

drank Red Rooibos by Nelson's Tea
2332 tasting notes

Not a bad straight rooibos! I don’t have a lot to say about this one except it was rooibos with no murkiness or weirdness. I wouldn’t seek it out, but I wouldn’t say no to another cup!

drank Sweet Potato by 52teas
2332 tasting notes

With sugar and milk, this is quite starchy and interesting! The second time I had this, it tasted mostly like slightly malty black tea. It was plain – not bad, but not amazing. The starchiness returned in the final cup. I guess I wouldn’t mind if it were even more potato-y!

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo

Cold and with enough sugar added, this is drinkable, but it’s really not a good tea. It’s overly tangy and tart. It’s just sort of fake and strange.

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

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!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
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
