4046 Tasting Notes

this one is a little better. Likely because of the ginger in it…ginger makes every thing better for me haha. Another one from Cavocorax that i can get behind. Still not an overwhelmingly AMAZING tea, but it’s not a bad little cup if you’re after a fandom sort of blend. I wish the ginger was a lot stronger in this but it did show up a little.

I love my ginger!

this is a wackload of “meh” for me. It’s not a bad tea but in the grand acheme of average adagio teas…there are others i’d take first. Appreciate the share though cavo!

drank Chai On Life by DAVIDsTEA

thanks cavocorax this is an interesting sort of tea… i’m not sure how i feel about it. on one hand it’s a decent enough chai-like sort of tea with a bit of spice/kick to it. on the other hand…it’s weird. there’s a fruitness here that seems out of place. i guess i don’t hate this, but i don’t love the crap out of it either :)

sad day is sad…. last cup of this yummy ummy puerh…FOR NOW! this will rejoin my cupboard later i’m sure. I had a bit of time this early afternoon to have a few cups of this and it was a nice send off and a great way to clear my head. And now..back to the suck.

ok so i know i just waxed poetic about how awesome mate is(NOT)…but this one is ok. It seems the chocolate cuts through that, i’m mate…i taste like burnt chalk taste and adds to this. But you know? if it was just black tea with this flavouring… i’d like it more. so POOP ON YOU MATE! true story. but the flavours of this one at least make it drinkable…mostly. thanks cavo! one more for “all the tea!”

Cavocorax

Yeah, it’s too bad so many of the NV teas had mate in it. I guess it fits with the desert theme?

Sil

yeah… that would make sense

Roswell Strange

I really loved this one :P

Terri HarpLady

I just love the review, hahahah

BLAAAAAH! Cavocorax got me. YUCK mate! gross! BOOOOOOOO! Seriously, mate is like a second hatred of mine.. NOT as much as jasmine or blergamot… but it’s up there. it just always tastes like mate. always! this is like hey… wanna bit of cinnamon with your mate. blah. sorry cavo.. BLECH

keychange

Have fun with the jasmine tea I sent you then!! haha

Sil

it wasn’t bad…the black helped :)

VariaTEA

So I am going to go out on a limb here and assume you are not a mate fan :P

sooo milk oolongs. they’re a thing. sometimes i like them..sometimes i don’t…and i never ever ever ever like the resteep. This one isn’t half bad. What’s strange to me is that i got no buttery sort of flavour that i get from most milk oolongs. instead this was almost more like a peach oolong. but a natural peach, not that weird tim horton’s peach flavoured drink (that of course i loved when i was younger!). on the whole…not to shabby! thanks awkward soul!

Sami Kelsh

Oh man, who didn’t love Tim Horton’s peach drink? That stuff was the business.

I swear it got less awesome when they started selling it in bottles instead of as a fountain drink. Or maybe I just got older. Who’s to say?

Bio

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.
