4044 Tasting Notes

drank White Tiger (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
4044 tasting notes

Kittenna was nice enough to share of her aging tea with me lol and this still tastes as enjoyable as when i first tried it. Had a cup of this to mix things up with the greens and blacks i’m having today. Hard to believe it’s only 12:30! woot!

drank Tokyo by Harney & Sons
4044 tasting notes

sipdown! kittylovestea was kind enough to send me some of this, even though i was fairly sure this wouldn’t be a tea for me. While i can understand how some would find this tea to be a pleasure to drink, it is not the tea for me. Ah well! another to cross off my list. Thanks kitty!

drank The Malt Shop by Della Terra Teas
4044 tasting notes

sipdown! meh. this tea should be better. it smells delicious but the taste is lacking in my opinion. it’s like a watered down chocolate o or something to that effect. it’s not BAD..but it’s not delicious and wonderful and probably never needs to be restocked. But that’s ok because i’ve tried it, and i’ve got others from della that i like. There just happen to be better chocolatey teas out there. :)

I feel exactly the same way about it. :)

drank Bolder Breakfast by The Tea Spot
4044 tasting notes

oh man…i didn’t realise that this had chocolate notes in it when i opted to brew it up. This is another one from terri’s swap with me and i have to say it’s pretty delicious. I don’t taste much puerh to this but that’s not a bad thing. It just means that this falls into the flavoured category more than the straight black :) This is a win in my books!

I think this tea was my first ‘intro’ to Shu, but I agree, there isn’t much in there. Even though this one is flavored, it’s nicely bold, so I keep it in my breakfast rotation.

drank New Moon Darjeeling by The Tea Spot
4044 tasting notes

sipdown! Another one of terri’s teas! I think i’m beginning to discover that i’m not as much a fan of darjeelings as i used to be. There’s a flavour in a lot of darjeelings that tends to not agree with me. I’m not entirely sure what it is. This isn’t a bad tea but there are others i like better. Maybe i need to have a darjeeling journey to figure things out :)

Terri HarpLady

I’ve been drinking some Darjeeling here & there, & although I can appreciate a cup, I’d much rather drink an Assam or yunnan. Regardless, I seem to be compiling a small collection of darjs, & I’ve been thinking the same thing.

drank Chocolate Delight by Tealux
4044 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (260) made this one latte style and it was as tasty as i thought it might be. kind of like drinking a cup of actual hot cocoa. Added a little sweetner and it was pretty darn delicious. Looking forward to drinking up some more teas tomorrow! woot woot!

have also been sipping on this one tonight while i spent some time getting some thing organized. Overall not a bad little tea, but it’s right in there with my other general feelings on oolongs.

drank 1991 Da Ye Aged Oolong by Butiki Teas
4044 tasting notes

soooo even though i’ve found that there are some green oolongs that i really and some dark oolongs that i love…as an over all type of tea, they just aren’t my favourite. This one, while it’s certainly a delicious roasty, sweet, chestnut cup of yum…there’s something in there that makes me wish it was a black tea :) I’ve gone through a few steepings of this and while it’s certainly up there on my list of oolongs, i think it’s largely time to come to grips with the fact that i’ll never love them as much as my black teas. :)

Tealizzy

I would agree, as I must have a cup of black tea in the morning; however, oolongs have become my afternoon teas! :)

Sil

that’s good news! I still pretty much love my unflavoured blacks…then my flavoured blacks lol everything else is somewhere in the middle though i keep trying damn near everything haha

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.
