1927 Tasting Notes

drank Follow Me Tea by TWG Tea Company

Thanks for the tea, MissB!

Unfortunately, it just doesn’t smell good when steeped up. IDK what it is about it, but I keep getting wafts from the cup and wrinkling my nose wondering what smells so bad, since I’m bagging up all these French teas and they smell so good!

I think I know what the problem is though. It’s just lost all the pineapple flavour. It’s just a basic sencha base, which isn’t really my favourite kind of tea.

Well, thanks for the sample MissB, but if I want the full experience, I think I’ll need to go into the TWG store here and get a cup to go. :)

LOL. I thought I’d try some teas as I was packing up, and I’ve already tried this one!

It’s really floral. Yet somehow I like it.

Honestly, my favorite steep of this tea is 3rd steep or so. The green just gets so sweet and the florals are toned down and it makes you think of those perfumes that you wish you could eat! Give a few more steeps a go, I think you’ll like it!

OMGsrsly

I’ll have to do that, thanks! I don’t usually rested teas but I should try it with these ultra floral French teas.

OMGsrsly

Resteep. Sigh. Gotta teach my new autocorrect.

drank Smoked Maple Banana by Butiki Teas

Sipdown. Delicious with some milk and a little maple syrup.

And maple walnut ice cream for breakfast.

Yep.

Dexter

MMMmmmmmm maple walnut ice cream – not sure about breakfast – but Yummmm ice cream

OMGsrsly

LOL. I was doing that terrible tabata thing and just walked away half way into it and dished myself out ice cream to the sound of, “Next up, push ups!” Ice cream > push ups.

I’m enjoying this, randomly steeped throughout the day.

drank Melon Drop by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this. It’s melony. Not bad, but not my favourite. Mostly because I don’t love melon flavour.

Weird that no one else has tasting notes. Where were they filed?

Anyways, I have this big package from MissB that says “Christmas Spiced Tea” on the bottom, so this is what I’m guessing it was.

It was… way more delicate than expected. Even with the bazillion cloves I got in my mug, it wasn’t too clovey. Nice and gentle, went really nicely with milk. There’s lots of safflower (fake saffron, the really orange bits) in this tea, which makes it really pretty.

I think I quite like this one, and will be keeping some. Thanks, MissB!

drank Florence by Harney & Sons
1927 tasting notes

Almost finished this one! I don’t think I’ll want to revisit for a while, although it’s not too bad today. The chocolate is just not so great beside Crio Bru and various cacao shell options that are out there. But! I’m finally tasting the hazelnut today! Whoa!

One cup left. :)

Sipdown! Yum!

Super gentle tonight due to low and slow brew. 5 minutes at 160F. Still grapefruit candy, but so delicate and lovely.

Dexter

Awesome!!!!

OMGsrsly

This is one of the few white teas that’s not silver needle that I really like. :)

I am so sorry I sent this to you without trying, Dex. OMG this is terrible.

6th rinse and it’s not drinkable at all. Smells and tastes like wet rotting leaves in the forest. Not that I’ve eaten wet rotting leaves out from under a log, but you get the idea.

This is seriously disappointing.

I’m going back to my moonlight cake.

Dexter

No worries – I’ve sent out tea without trying them. This is something I THOUGHT I was interested in – now I KNOW I’m not. :))

Sil

hahahahaha

OMGsrsly

Sil, it’s in your box now. O:D (That’s me looking angelic…)

JC

Oh this sounds like very wet stored Pu! lol

OMGsrsly

Ick! I’m making a note to myself to avoid really old wet stored stuff.

Sil

watch me love it.

OMGsrsly

Then more power to you, Sil!

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!
