This is my FAAAVOURITE of the Great Wall teas that I have. It sounds like it should be disgusting (every other chocolate-in-a-tea I’ve tried has been) but it is amazing. This was my LAST CUP OF IT.

Uhoh. Guess you’re probably not ordering more for a while eh? Chocolate tea is so hit and miss though! If it tastes like watered days down hot chocolate I drink it, but only grudgingly.

Cavocorax

Why did my autocorrect add ‘days’? Stupid tech thinks it’s smarter than I am!

Ozli

Augh I can’t stand that watered down hot chocolate thing! This is not that though, this is aaaamaaaaazing. It’s totally on my shopping list (but uh, I can’t buy it now since I bought all those other teas…)

I got distracted by a pomegranate and left this steeping for fifteen minutes or so? Haaaa. Still good, still good! ;)

drank Mint Green Tea by Tetley
299 tasting notes

Having this one for breakfast today. It’s right around zero right now but feels colder! Anyway, this tea smells amazing and wintery, but I’m not sure why I didn’t just brew up a mint tea, since I prefer it! Probably subconsciously screaming CAFFEINE!!

That was hell on empty stomach with pills, for the record. /o\

drank Mu by Great Wall Tea Company
299 tasting notes

Having for dessert with pumpkin pie tartlets and vanilla ice cream. Tea is not health choice in my world. :D :D :D

I don’t really like the smell of this tea because I hate cloves, but when you get up close it smells really really good. Something soft in there. It’s the best tea with licorice that I’ve tried. (And I love licorice? But not yet in any teas.)

Anyway, now that I’m timing my steeps for this site, I think I’m steeping way less (I probably am a chronic over-steeper because I wander off and forget constantly).. idk if this is good or bad yet.

Is it just me or is this site missing a “What tea are you drinking?” box for the tealog? It’s a pain searching the tea and going from there. There should be a LOG YOUR TEA! button or something.

Mmmmmm. That sounds pretty good. I’ve got a licorice blend from DavidsTea that I like,but then I found out licorice is bad for nursing, but then fennel is good, so Idk what to do. I complicate everything.

And I totally found this site useful for making me pay attention to how long I steep tea, and savoring the flavours. I’m always using my tablet to take notes! But I go to my cupboard to find the tea I want to review – maybe that’s quicker?

Ozli

Oh yeah, that helps! Thanks! :D

My cousin sent me these 4 tins of tea from the Great Wall Tea Co and it took me a long time to try this one because I’m not usually a fan of green teas. Anyway, this is leagues better than the Yogi Tea one that I tried. Rarely drink it, but it was nice today.

drank Earl Grey (loose leaf) by Twinings
299 tasting notes

This was the first loose-leaf tea I ever drank (bought by accident, haaa) and I still love it.

Cavocorax

Yeah that’s one of the classics for me too, although I didn’t know there was a loose-leaf variety! I’ve seen people use those tins for planting herbs!

Ozli

Oh man, that would be adorable! Going to do that when next I have a herb to plant (and I JUST planted lemonbalm, hee)!

drank Orange Pekoe by Tetley

This is the tea I grew up on, and I drink it now when I’m feeling sad or nostalgic, with milk & sugar as my Comfort Tea.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
