1900 Tasting Notes

I had a big mug of this yesterday as I felt I might be coming down with something. With a little honey in my travel mug, this tea was excellent. Warmth from the ginger, a nice comforting background from the puerh.

Definitely one I’d like to keep around. Not necessarily a tin, but maybe a bit more in my bag. :)

drank Citrus Lavender Sage by Teavana

Sipdown! Yay!

I do like this one, but can’t really justify buying more right now. Instead, I’m going to take some DavidsTea Redberry Tonic (since I have some) and add a few lavender flowers and a spoonful of sage leaves. It won’t be quite the same, but since the strongest flavour in this one is the sea buckthorn, followed by the citrus and sage and lavender, I feel that will be a good substitute.

Sipping this down with a spoonful of honey. Yum.

I topped up my mug of this one with Noel Nog. Yes. Soy based egg nog. Its primary flavour is nutmeg, and it seemed like it would go well with this tea.

It’s pretty good. Just a hint of saltiness tonight. Not one I’d be buying again, though. I’m starting to get a bit of a synthetic sweet aftertaste from these Teavana teas that isn’t my favourite.

Only one mug of this left!

Nice big mug of this one tonight.

Silk Road teas always last forever, because they recommend only 1 tsp per 16 oz. And I follow their directions. :) I’m not even half way through this tea, and I’ve given a bunch away. Gotta drink more faster!

(This is possibly my favourite Earl Grey.)

drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown!

It’s weird to have a non-black tea in the morning, but this was good! Definitely something I’d consider picking up in the future.

Thanks, Heather!

Sipdown! I actually kinda like this one. Definitely a good option on campus, as there’s one place with Numi teas and one place with H&S. :)

Just having it with honey today, although I do really like it with milk or cream as well.

Interesting. Sweet, a little beany. I totally get where the “soy milk” description comes from.

Sadly, these are NOT flavours for me. Boo! I have one cup left, but I think it’s going into the “tea for other people” box.

Camomile, orange peel, lemongrass, lavender, honey. Yay! A good end to thanksgiving dinner. :)

drank Nilgiri Coonor by SOKO Tea House

I enjoyed this one this morning, and so did my mom. :) I steeped mine a little too long and it got a bit astringent/tannic, but it was still quite tasty. I’ll have to get some more at some point since I do like it. I think I prefer the puerh I picked up, though.

My mom decided to keep this tea too. Yeesh!

Hahah. I guess you have an excuse to go back for more?

OMGsrsly

I know! I’ll have to tell them the teas were a hit with my mom. That’ll learn me. I should bring samples over, not the whole bag! :)

drank Royal Tajiri by Tea Centre

Had this one at my parents place. Delicious dark and malty tea. I had it with milk and sugar, and enjoyed it all. :) Very similar to the JusTea one, but less malty I think.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
