505 Tasting Notes
Uh oh, this tea is AMAZING.
Reminds me a LOT of DavidsTea’s Vanilla Oolong, which I haven’t had a taste of since the Christmas sampler.
As soon as I smelled the dry leaves, I had a serious craving. Like an addiction. Ah!
Working on a longer review for the blog – will post ASAP but first – prepping a chicken for the slow cooker. And enjoying this tea with some homemade English Muffin bread and honey! Happy Hump day!
Thank you to The Tea Merchant for the generous samples!
This tea is out of this world! SOOO delicious!
Happily – it tastes JUST like it smells! Can you believe it? mmm, it’s liek biting into a fresh, still warm coconut macaroon. Not macaron, but maybe it tastes like one of those too. Amazing.
Sweet, coconutty and a hint of pastry. Beautiful white base – full leaves and bright green and white. Quality ingredients for a very high quality tea, what else can I say? Delicious!
After discovering that this heavenly tea is making a comeback this fall, I made myself a double strong delicious pumpkiny latte to celebrate! eee!
Well, it’s also celebrating the opening of my teacup keychain etsy shop :D !!! When I think about it, maybe my shop is too specific… but then I think about tea drinkers and how amazing they are, and they deserve their own keychains dammit! There, all better. haha!

I have to say, I’m sitting here tonight and feeling happy and grateful for my Steepster family. I love this place we can come and feel so at home!
I’m also grateful for Red Leaf Tea’s matcha program – it’s allowed me to try so many amazing teas that I otherwise could not afford at this time – and I and SUPER grateful for this cheesecake matcha!
Holy tasty! Creamy and tangy and sweet – without the feeling of a heavy stomach afterwards. so… I can have as many cups as I want. I like that.
I will definitely be trying this flavour with other matcha bases, because I am in matcha heaven right now!
Thanks to Jillian for giving me enough for one small pot worth!
I didn’t even know this blend existed, but I surely would have bought it up if I noticed it on sale! The dry leaves do not smell appealing – this could be because of the age of the tea, but it kind of smells strange!
No worries, as soon as it started to brew the strange smell went away. I brewed at 165 for 2 minutes since I was making a pot, and I have never made a whole pot of white tea before! The whole idea of using a pot is still taking some getting used to – I’m a one cup gal!
Anyways, I added a tiny dab agave and took a sip. Yummy white base! A creamy and nutty bai mu dan, with a hint of pineapple and coconut – definitely papaya and a little bit of banana for body.
It’d a mild cup, but just what I need right now to calm down my guilt for not taking another shift tonight after I already worked this morning. I’m just that sort of person though, I would have felt guilty if I couldn’t work it, and resentful if I had to work it haha! boop. tea!
Now I know this matcha isn’t terribly exciting (it’s no cheesecake, right?) and it’s not one of my favourite flavours (I wouldn’t seek out a blueberry anything really)… um.. yeah it’s kind of my favourite matcha right now!
It’s always SO creamy and sweet and juicy and PERFECT! So hello little blueberry matcha, thanks for being you! :D
This was my birthday tea on Sunday!
I haven’t touched it for months, but I was definitely in the mood and wanted to pick a special tea to christen my new little pot!
It was perfect. Enjoyed with a dash of maple syrup!
(Here’s my new pot and matching tea cup & saucer! So fancy! :D )
Had my birthday party last night, where I converted a few people with this tea! Yay!
Sadly, it wasn’t as tasty as it has been, simply because of the vessels I had on hand. They were plastic. Wow – it affected the flavour a LOT, but since my guests didn’t have any note of comparison, they were still quite impressed! I am happy for that :)
Today is my real birthday and it is kind of awful because I had a migraine last night as the party was winding down, and now today I feel weird and sick. Blargh.
I will have a blog post soon about the great tea gifts I received from my boyfriend, they are gorgeous and I am happy :)
Yay for tea, yay for new converts!
