260 Tasting Notes

I bought this thinking it would taste like something else. I drank it iced, and it has a nice punch like taste, sweet. It reminds me of a glogg verison of tea. I’m not super in love with it, nothing out of this world.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

I loved all what was in the tea, I just didn’t like how it all tasted together. I brewed a 10 oz cup with 1 tablespoon of leaves, and I thought it was very weak still. I brew my own chai blends very strong, so my palate is always wanting that. I wanted to love this tea, but just couldn’t.

I drank this iced. It has a nice real orange flavor, little floral honey cream flavor there. It’s naturally sweet.

drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA

This is my first bamboo tea. It’s very light, I didn’t taste much of the fruit flavoring. I didn’t get much of flavor of anything. If I had to compare it to anything, green rooibos. I drank it iced, it’s just way too mild and light for my taste.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Organic Chiran Sencha by Yuuki-cha

I really enjoyed this tea. I wanted to try a new provider for Japanese teas, so I tried Yuuki. I am glad I tried them out. I am drinking my third rebrew. I think the 2nd brew was the best, greenest. Just a little astringency, grassy, slightly thick on the tongue with a sweetness.

drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
260 tasting notes

I have deleted my rating since after some searching, and after attempting to rebrew, I realized this is FLAVORED with milk flavoring. I looked on the website of DavidsTea, and looked at the ingredients, and saw this:

Chinese oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains, natural flavouring*.
*For flavouring information consult our FAQ.

I noticed I couldn’t rebrew it while the flavors improved. For the cost, I expected a better quality. I’ve only had one other milk oolong before, and had amazing 8 rebrews from it, each one pumped with creamy flavor. Not with this “milk” oolong.

I DO NOT recommend this tea, as it’s a fake, and not worth the price.

drank Altinbas by Caykur

I had some Turkish tea on Turkish Airlines, and I was trying to figure out which tea they served on it. I was told at the Istanbul Airport this was close to it. This tea was for sure not it. I did not like this tea. It had a light smoky flavor, which is something I do not like in tea. I haven’t had that much Turkish tea, so I don’t know how it’s suppose to taste. I was not a fan of this.

drank Madupatty Tea by KDHP

I got this in Munnar, India. I bought this tea after watching person after person buy 3-6 bags, so I thought this must be the tea to buy!

It’s a very strong CTC black tea. It reminds me of an Assam by the briskness. The website notes the floral note. I really like this tea iced. I bought it within a month of it being processed. The freshness is something really special. The tea itself has the beautiful smell that the tea factories smell like.

drank Nilgiri Leaf Tea BOP by Chamraj Tea

I bought this while I was on vacation in South India. It’s pretty astringent. I’ve brewed it with lower temp water, and brewed for 3-4 minutes, and still has some astringency. It was pretty cheap (95 rupees/$1.30 for 250g). It’s an okay tea, nothing really special.

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
