drank La Naissance by Fauchon
1927 tasting notes

Not as amazing as usual this morning. What did I do wrong? Is it because I’m craving a coffee? A huge mug of coffee? Mmm… Coffee.

Cavocorax

OMG. I’m dying for Tim Hortons rn. Stupid roll-up the rim contest got me addicted again!

OMGsrsly

I totally forgot to buy coffee yesterday, and now I am still in my PJs drinking wine and sewing trousers. So I’ll probably forget to buy it today too.

I’m almost ready to break into another package of this tea! That’s exciting. :)

I still love it. SO licoricey, no sweet aftertaste. THE BEST.

What’s also super fun is that once it’s steeped the leaves turn a mossy green. Whee!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML

Best licorice tea EVAR.

OMGsrsly

Good thing I have 8 more ounces! :D

Fjellrev

Yay! I think I have 2 ounces but should be more than enough for me. :)

Cavocorax

Holy moly. That’s a lot! :D

OMGsrsly

I may have gone a bit overboard.

drank Lime Sage Rooibos by Cornelia Bean
1927 tasting notes

This isn’t my favourite tea because the rooibos is kinda heavy and overly present. However, it smells divine and has worked out really well this evening with half a spoon of Teavana’s Limeade Twist and 1/4 tsp honey.

Yum.

I think I need more.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Thanks so much for the sample, Dustin!

So. Orange and vanilla? Mostly I got rose and orange flower! Whoa! I did really like it though. It had that “Fauchon” flavour, in that it’s quite similar in base to the other teas I have.

Really sweet and desserty. Yum! If I saw it, I would probably get some. That being said, I do like Naissance and Un Soir de France a bit better. :)

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Caramel Apple by Butiki Teas
1927 tasting notes

In a travel mug today! It was light and fruity and oolongy. I didn’t really get caramel or apple out of it, but I don’t care because I’m quite liking how this oolong base works in a steel mug!

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I think I like this one more than the Raspberry Balsamico, but I’m having them blended again. 1 tbsp each tea in my big teapot (eee!), steeped 4 minutes. I added 1 tsp honey.

Whatever I don’t drink tonight will go in the fridge for tomorrow!

This is nice and limey. Some raspberry. Some sweetish taste that could be the balsamic. The blend is good, but the lime on its own is better. Too bad it’s a heavier, and thus more expensive, tea. If it’s even available anymore…

OMGsrsly

Whoops, I drank the whole pot.

drank Phoenix Pearl by Zen Tea
1927 tasting notes

I threw 1/4 tsp of these into my 14 oz “timolino” and sipped on it all day at work.

I still like this tea, especially for the versatility. Being able to let it steep all day without any funky flavours is awesome!

Dexter

This one is awesome :))

drank Tamarind Gui Fei by Butiki Teas
1927 tasting notes

Oh, this is SO good today! I made it this morning, so it’s just a little warmer than body temperature now.

Nice and fruity, the oolong is perfect and thick and smooth.

YUM.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Dexter

Hmmmmm – I like tamarind in black tea – haven’t thought about it it oolong – will have to remember this next time I make tamarind chutney…

OMGsrsly

Did you get a sample of this? If not, I’ll put the bit I have left aside for you.

Dexter

No please don’t – please enjoy it or share it with someone who will appreciate it….

Dexter

I actually mix tamarind into iced tea – it’s amazing, I just haven’t tried it with oolong – will have to do that someday

OMGsrsly

I only have 1 tsp left or so. I bought it for a friend and most of it went to her! I’ll definitely enjoy it. It worked well in the travel mug.

drank Banane Chocolat by Lupicia
1927 tasting notes

A sample from Dustin! Thank you. :)

This smells like sweet banana candy. There’s weirdly not much chocolate in there as well. I steeped a bit short and cool, because I was making an oolong at the same time. Unfortunately, the tea is really thin. I like the flavour, it’s nice that the banana is stronger than the chocolate. But the texture just isn’t doing it for me.

Are all these puerhs and oolongs ruining me for regular black tea? GASP. I hope not.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Sil

hahahaha

Fjellrev

Banana candy oddly sounds really good to me even though I’m sure this must taste artificial haha.

OMGsrsly

I actually quite liked the banana flavour. It was sweet and fresh.

OMGsrsly

I think I’d prefer a banana oolong, though. Like melon oolong. :D The texture of the oolong is just… IDK, I think it would go better with the banana flavour they use.

Fjellrev

I never tried David’s rendition but I like the idea of banana in oolong too!

OMGsrsly

David’s rendition was Before My Time. :)

rosebudmelissa

Is there a banana oolong out there? That does sound good. For that matter, are there many banana flavored teas?

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!
