Thanks Kittena!

This is a lovely oolong. It’s not overly strong, but very smooth and slightly vegetal. I’m not an expert by any means on oolongs, so I’m none to sure of what else to say about this one. I do prefer my Butiki Gui Fei, but this one is still quite enjoyable. I plan on resteeping this multiple times this afternoon.

Thanks Stephanie :)

This one is almost identical to David’s Coconut Oolong. Yum. I’d really have to have them side-by-side to decipher any difference. For now I’ll just enjoy this lovely cup of tea as I read article after article and write yet another paper.

On my second steep. I love oolongs for inspiration.

I enjoyed three steeps of this. How lovely.

Also, I’m trying to swap out everything I’m not loving before I’m gone for a month. Feel free to check out my swap posts and stuff in my cupboard if anyone’s interested. Thanks!

oh i’ll be watching… waiting…ready to pounce lol

Thanks Faith for this one :)

I’m quite enjoying this tea. The cocoa is lovely and the chicory/licorice root (I’m guessing) adds a subtle almost-spiciness I wasn’t expecting. It more smells of cocoa than tastes of it. The backdrop is all peppermint. The ingredients work well together. The tea has a strong flavour, yet not one single ingredient overwhelms the rest.

This is one I’d consider having around to bring to work/school since it’s teabags and easier.

The resteep this morning is still quite flavourful. Yum.

drank Bananas Foster by 52teas
597 tasting notes

Thanks Kittena :)

The black base here was nicer than other 52Teas I’ve had. The banana was a bit too fake for my liking, though it certainly wasn’t bad. I could taste both the banana and cinnamon clearly. I’m just steeping for a second round now.

Holy delicious! Wow. It must be the sugar and caramel. This could satisfy a sweet craving in one sip.

I followed the directions for 1 tbsp. of matcha, 1 cups of milk, and a few ice cubes blended. Amazing! I may have to order this. And the Coconut MATHCAccino, since I adore coconut.

Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie

The coconut version is fan friggun tastic! I’m serious, you should buy some if you loved the caramel!!! Sooooo gooooood.

Courtney

Awesome! Yeah I loved it. I basically inhaled it.

Thanks jessiwrites for this delightful sample.

Yet another awesome black tea. The flavours are delicate, yet clear and not overwhelming. The strawberry is slightly fake, but not offensively. I’m thoroughly enjoying this.

Thanks tattooed_tea for this one :)

This is so tasty. I’m finding lime in tea to be quite enjoyable. I’m really only getting a slight creaminess I can attribute to the coconut, if anything. Perhaps the second steep will bring out more of the coconut, but for now I’ll happily enjoy the lime.

I knew there was a reason I wanted to try this tea. It is so delicious. All the black teas I’ve had today have been near perfection. What an excellent tea day!

This has a lovely black base with a mixture of flavours that complement each other nicely. Like a cinnamon bun without the overwhelming sweetness – pretty much exactly like brioche. Yum!

I may have to look into ordering from American Tea Room.

Thanks jessiwrites :)

Sil

this one is a keeper!

TeaBrat

Want! :)

Courtney

Sil, have you ever done an order with American Tea Room? Their shipping is a bit steep to Canada. Any ideas/suggestions what other teas are good from them?

Sil

Courtney – i have not, beyond the stuff i’ve tried in swaps. But i was thinking of asking my tea mule to cart some up here for me maybe in July? I can make a mental note to touch base with you and add a few things for you to my order.

Courtney

That would actually be awesome :) I’ll make a note for myself as well. Thanks!

drank Candy Cane by Della Terra Teas
597 tasting notes

I thought I’d perhaps had this before, but it appears I have not. This is similar to Della Terra’s other black teas with peppermint and vanilla and/or chocolate. In a word, amazing. I’m not a fan of Della Terra’s black teas without mint, but the ones with mint I just can’t get enough of.

It appears my black tea aversion has been cured, as, over the last couple days all I’ve been wanting is a tasty black tea. This has been a great morning in terms of that pursuit.

The resteep of this was also successful.

Cavocorax

Woohoo! Back to normal!

This tea is quite delicious. I’ve been pining over the loss of 52Teas Raspberry Cream and this tea is just what this reminds me of, with a hint of strawberry rather than raspberry. There’s is no fakeness of overwhelming flavour – just a lovely black base with a subtle fruit taste in the background that makes for a great cup of tea. I’m just checking out Mystic Brew’s eBay store now to see if this is available.

Thanks jessiwrites!

Update: Just ordered more :) Not much makes me happier than when I can get shipping to Canada. Yay!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb, to be continued…

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
