drank Huoshan Huang Ya Yellow by What-Cha
5773 tasting notes

opted to try this one today. I’ve had a few yellow teas before and only one ever knocked my socks off. I’ve been searching for a similar one ever since. This one is pretty good. It’s got a delicious fresh and juicy flavour to it, while not falling into that trap of tasting like a green tea. Yep..even as this one cooled, it was just really tasty and delicious! I’ll likely pick this one up again since it’s the closest i’ve come to finding that one yellow tea i loved.

I haven’t tried yellow tea yet. I may look for this one when I order again from What-Cha.

Sil

it was tasty!

MissB

I have a few yellow’s at home I should send you, if/whenever I get back. Or, just stay at my place when you go to Vancouver, then you can raid my cupboards!

Sil

hahahaha i may still take you up on that :)

this one didn’t float my boat this morning. I’m not sure what i was about it but it just didn’t have a deep, rich taste or really taste like much. I’ve got just a wee little bit left though that i’ll send over to dex as maybe she can figure this one out :)

man…last tea of the evening…so not fair…everyone else is getting their mystery boxes from butiki and mine still isn’t even in canada. i swear the post office hates me! still loving this one, though tonight i accidentally brewed it longer than 2 mins…so it’s spicy! even with honey….but soooooo good!

Final Count: 156 (with like 30-60 on their way…. ugh!)

Cavocorax

It’s totally not fair! Did you peek to see what was in our boxes, or are you waiting to be surprised?

Sil

i read what was in yours… it’ll still be a surprise…you think i can remember anything with like 60+ teas all coming in at once?

herbal teas before bed….still enjoying this one and not much else to say beyond the fact that BEING SICK SUCKS!

Cavocorax

I feel like I’m getting sick too and it’s probably your fault. :P (I know, that makes NO SENSE, but I’ve been fine ALL YEAR and then I meet you and BAM. Sniffle-city)

Sil

hahaha it’s because you left your natural habitat for a weekend

Cavocorax

Perhaps. PER-HAPS….

drank Grasshopper Cheesecake by Butiki Teas
5773 tasting notes

I will happily take this off anyone who doesn’t love theirs. For me, this is the right blend of a strong base, mixed with just the right amount of mint and cheesecake flavouring. This is NOT a travel mug tea. This is a sit at home and enjoy the aroma and the deliciousness of this tea while the outside world goes by. A little bit of sugar added to this, just makes everything pop while still allowing me to enjoy the deliciousness of the suncha base.

Stephanie

I am drinking it right now too :D I will try it sweetened next time!

DeliriumsFrogs

I didn’t order any of this, and now you’re making me wish I did. lol

Sil

Steph – i loved it plain but just a teeeeny bit of sugar made it pop a little more

Sil

DF – nope you don’t want this… hahaha

Lariel of Lórien

I missed out on it.

Cavocorax

Sweet! That makes me want to pick up my damn teas just a little bit more!

Sil

I TOLD YOU! COME GET THEM!

Sil

..or wait until the next box shows up…. do you have things in that box…no maybe you don’t…i dunno..

Cavocorax

I don’t think I do? I think I’m waiting to see what A&D does for the year of the sheep/goat bc we might want to get something together.

Sil

gawd i want them to go up already..

Cavocorax

Looks like it was Feb 11 last year! So we must be getting close.

I adore the base of this tea. However, somewhere along the way, the cheescake in this one gets lost and i’m left with a blend that is graham crackers away from my Ruby Pie :) This isn’t a bad blend, but not one of my favourite from Stacy. I vastly prefer the grasshopper cheesecake blend :)

tea-sipper

This is one I missed. This is the blend that gave me the idea that I should be blending some flavored black teas with ripened pu-erh.

drank Minted Monkey by Tippy's Tea
5773 tasting notes

i think my mouth has trouble with these teas from tippy. This one is more chocolate than mint for me today…but i can almost see where folks are comparing it to an after eight. I would need a buttload more mint for that to be a true comparison for me :) That being said, this is still a tasty tea and one i might consider once i finish up the last of my peppermint patty from stacy…not that this is a herbal, but there also isn’t really room in my cupboard for a huge number of mint teas!

I like the base of this tea…and i think it for sure has potential. It makes me excited to try other teas from tippy once i get my cupboard under control. Thanks for sharing Cavo!

drank Raspberry Cocoa by Tippy's Tea
5773 tasting notes

today, the raspberry is more present so maybe the flavour just hadn’t disseminated throughout the entire bag? Today this is very much a raspberry tea…but now it’s missing the cocoa lol. Still a decent tea, but needed a little sweetner to take the edge off the raspberry flavour :) thanks for sharing cavo!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
