4721 Tasting Notes

I’m not rating this one, as Green Terrace Teas sent this one my way even though i’d only asked for two samples from them. I hate adding to my cupboard or wasting teas that i don’t think i’d really enjoy. I’m guessing they had room in the envelope. Soooo i’m drinking this even though i don’t generally prefer oolongs as a thank you for their generosity. I wholeheartedly appreciate it when companies do this sort of thing so that i get a chance to try their teas without having to commit to a HUGE purchase.

Sooo this is a green oolong. It had a floral scent to it that had me a little worried but brewed up, this isn’t overly floral. There’s a nice balance of sweetness here to go along with the floral. It doesn’t have that distinctive OOLONG taste that i dislike either. I think anyone who loves oolongs would find this a really pleasant cup of tea to drink.

thanks so much Green Terrace teas!

mmmm i like this one! it’s got an interesting flavour to it. The usual TTC flavour profile but then in the background theres almost like a plum-y sort of deeper feel to it…kind of like a stone fruit sort of taste. Interesting for sure and fun to try out! Thanks again Cavocorax

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
4721 tasting notes

this is one from variaTEA – now i’m not typically a fan of coconut or david’s teas but i like trying things, so i’m always going to be like woohoo! new tea! especially in small quantities. this one isn’t terrible if you can ignore the oily film on the surface of the tea. I can actually taste the chocolate, which i have had trouble with in the past with david’s tea..and the coconut isn’t overpowering. it blends fairly nicely with the other ingredient to give it that coconut macaroon sort of taste. thanks VariaTEA!

i have a confession. I don’t love Mi Xian blacks. The one from stacy is good, but i don’t love it like others do. There are teas that i like better. All that aside, i don’t DISLIKE these teas either. they’re just lower on the totem pole than some others :) this one is very similar to the one that stacy carries, though slightly different and reminds me more of some of the other TTC teas that i’ve had. Over all, a nice cup of tea from this morning. Thanks Cavocorax!

I think I initially loved mi xian blacks because it was a flavor profile I had never tried, but once the novelty wore off I realized that although I enjoy a cup from time to time, its not something I wasn’t to drink every day.

pretty sure this is the one YYZ sent me even though it’s not in her cupboard, nor has she logged a note haha. Mostly because the other one from this company was labelled differently. this one is lighter, and not too malty. it’s more of a sweet/semi malty, more fruity than anything sort of except not really fruity tea. :) it was a good start to my morning earlier in the day after NO TEA yesterday! gasp

Terri HarpLady

Gotta make up for lost time! LOL

yyz

Yes this is from me. Totally agree with what you said! Sometimes I get caramel out of this tea, but it definitely is less chocolatey and complex than the other Rizhao’s.

drank Maracaibo by Crio Bru
4721 tasting notes

variaTEA thought she was being helpful when she made this listing but all that means is that now i HAVE to put it in my cupboard whereas before i could pretend that it wasn’t eta and so therefore didn’t need to be added lol. I had this one iced in omgsrsly style tonight when i got home after a very long day. Let me tell you, the only thing better was addeing a splash of criollo to this for a bit of sweetness and alcohol ha!

VariaTEA

My bad. Honestly, I made the page cuz I am anal and figured Cavalla was on here so this should be too

Sil

Lmao you know I’m just giving you a hard time silly

OMGsrsly

Ohh, good idea Sil! I’ll have to find some booze for it.

VariaTEA

I know. Don’t worry. I will make pages for ALL the Crio Bru teas and then I will share them with you so you have that much more tea :P

Another one from earlier today – love that creamy deliciousness :)

Cavocorax

I ended up mixing all of this with CB because the combo is just so much better! And, now it only takes up ONE spot in my cupboard. Bwahahah.

I feel bad because cavocorax sent this to me and i’m reviewing this before her and i literally have NOTHING to say about this because i had a no good very bad day and all i can recall was that it was like other TTC teas and i enjoyed it, though it didn’t knock my socks off. Which means it’s likely about an 83 ish but i’m not sure i could pick it out of a line up of TTC teas lol.

Cavocorax

Sorry your day was so rough! And, I’m sure I’ll give it the review it deserves at some point!

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.
