5919 Tasting Notes

ugh i hate steepster somedays. and my computer. lost my notes on this one…suffice it to say that again, angel is awesome. However, i prefer the other teavivre puerh that i had today over this one, while this one is still a decent enough tea…it’s just not what i would prefer given the choice between the two :)

drank Farewell, Butiki by Butiki Teas

this one is..interesting. oolong. and it smells really oolongy. but brewed, not so much. i don’t want to give anything away for anyone who wants to guess on the mystery teas. This one is interesting but not quite for me haha

Kaylee

I will happily take some of it off your hands if anything in my cupboard interests you. :-)

Sil

if you loved it, would be happy to just send it your way regardless. would rather it hits a home that loves it :)

Kaylee

I haven’t tried it yet, I’m just excited about it based on the descriptions that have trickled out so far. I love oolongs and melon.

Cavocorax

Strange!
I forgot I had the second mystery tea! I should try that soon!

Kittenna

How did you get this one?! I’d love a taste if possible. I thought you were only getting the other.

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea
5919 tasting notes

Thank you stephanie for sharing this one with me via Terri :) I’ve been wanting to try this one forever but since i know i’m not the biggest sencha fan, haven’t gotten around to placing an order. With butiki gone, i need to find a suitable replacement for my pineapple tea that doesn’t have coconut. blech. this one is pretty good. It’s still not as pineappley as i want it to be but it IS pure pineapple and green stuff lol. I mean, i can taste the sencha, which is a good thing as far as teas – you want to be able to taste the base imo…but for me, i’d love this just a little more if the base backed off a bit and let the pineapple be stronger.

All that aside though, this might be a good fix for those times that i just want pineapple damnit! :) Thanks for letting me try this one stephanie!!

drank Noel à Québec by Jardin du Thé
5919 tasting notes

noms. this is one from MissB and it’s super tasty. It reminds me of another tea though, that i can’t place and it’s driving me crazy. Maybe one of bayswaters teas? This one is less nutty though…and more sweet, maple..that’s been watered down. It’s not maple syrup…it’s more like something with an echo of maple on it. Delicious though! and a rather enjoyable flavoured cup! thanks missb!

drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia

Pretty sure this one was from kittenna this one is potent – super grape smell. brewed up, this is grapey but there’s a floral scent under it. it tastes like a floral sort of champagne like tea. I LOVE the smell but the taste of this one is better in the after taste than in the actual sip. lol Not a fan but i’m glad to have tried it.

Cavocorax

I’m totally the same way with this. I wish it just tasted like it smells.

drank Pumpkin Irish Cream by Butiki Teas
5919 tasting notes

aaah the unmistakable smell of stacy’s particular pumpkin smell haha. This one is nice since i didn’t restock her other pumpkin tea, though it’s not my favourite of the last batch of stacy teas. It’ll be enjoyable to drink but i won’t be upset when it’s gone.

whatshesaid

i somehow totally missed this one :(

Kittenna

I can share. I have a decent amount, I think.

drank Watermelon Lime Slushie by Butiki Teas
5919 tasting notes

mmm this one is tastier than i thought it would be. I really like stacy’s watermelon flavouring and her lime makes me happy. this IS a softer sort of blending and i like it quite a bit. I can totally see where the slushie comes from :) i’ll enjoy this one while i’ve got it!

Another sample from Teavivre – i’m trying to get to these sooner rather than later since Angel is generous about sharing her teas with us. This is one i’d order again. I’ve been sipping it on and off this morning in between other teas and it’s really nice. It’s got a creamy sort of feel like it – almost like a creamy cocoa except it’s not really cocoa like at all. it’s a smooth puerh…not really earthy.

Later steeps are giving me a much more dark chocolate sort of vibe while retaining that initial creaminess. A little like chocolate and coffee…with hints of leather like..i am a fan.

“… Angel is generous about sharing her teas with us.” +1 Angel is awesome!

this one is a generous sample from teavivre. It was on my wishlist to try so i was super happy to get this one as part of the teas angel sent on. This one tastes familiar. I can’t seem to place it this morning but it reminds me of another tea that i’ve had….while also reminding me of more of a oolong type tea. there’s a sweetness here that’s nice, but there’s also an underlying almost mineral like taste to me. On the whole, while it’s nice…it’ s not a tea for me.

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.
