4046 Tasting Notes

drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas
4046 tasting notes

Last tea of the evening! Figured i should round out the evening with a tea that is nearing the end of my package…though for this one i DO have a second package thanks to jackieT

Still enjoying this over the strawberry pie from 52 teas, this one has a much smoother, creamier base to it without the intense cinnamon flavour that strawberry pie has. YAY for a great saturday sipdown :)

drank Toffee and Cream by Kally Tea
4046 tasting notes

mmmmm one of my last teas for this evening…I managed to get down to 270 teas this weekend, so that makes me pretty happy. I’m picking up a few teas from my parents tomorrow so it will go up a bit but over all it’s looking like i’m on the downward slope again….finally. I won’t make 200 teas by the end of June but I think I can hold out and not buy any more teas until the end of June or keep it to really small orders.

This tea? It’s still one that i enjoy, though i’m nearing the end of it. I’ll have to figure out if i want to re-order this one as i’ve consistently wished the flavour was a little stronger. Still though, it’s a decent one for the no caffeine factor :) Plus kally teas has some great customer service!

drank Chocolate Bananas Foster by Teavana
4046 tasting notes

thank you kallieboo! for this sample as well. HOLY JEEPERS this is SWEEEEEET! it smells divine…chocolate banana but man i can’t drink this because it is a walking talking cup of sugar. Maybe i’ll try the rest of my sample as a latte to see if that helps with the sweet fact because this could be a pretty darn delicious tea….if it weren’t so sweet. omg. seriously. wow.

drank Fruity Pu-erh by The Tea Grotto
4046 tasting notes

thank you kallieboo! for this sample in our swap :) This is an interesting puerh. There’s an earthiness to this but there’s also a bit of a sweetness here that makes this a really nice tea.

drank English Blend by Lupicia
4046 tasting notes

I forgot that i’d had this one this morning so that i could pass the rest on to my parents. This is a pretty good morning black. There’s a lightness to it without losing any of it’s strength and it tastes delicious with a splash of milk :)

drank Royal Golden Safari by Butiki Teas
4046 tasting notes

mmmmmm so glad i opted to pick up more of this tea to have in my cupboard outside of the sample that i had so long ago. I like that this tea is slightly malty but not overly strong and bold. This has a little bit of sweet fruitness to it, but not in an overly sugary kind of way. Enjoying revisiting this one.

mmmmmmm another cup of this one this evening. Once again i’m struck by how delicious this is. I’m looking forward to trying the others from Stacy! This is a sweet tasty cup of smooth delicious wonder. This tea really doesn’t come across as a black tea – it’s really light and fresh and i have no words.

drank Formosa Oolong by The Tea Emporium
4046 tasting notes

thanks to indigobloom for a sample of this one. Once again i am underwhelmed by another tea emporium selection. they just don’t seem to have it going on for my tastebuds. At least this one doesn’t taste BAD but it’s very much an average cup of tea. There’s a sweetness to this one along with a roastiness.

mmmm finally got a chance to sit down with this one. I am a fan! it’s one of those kick in the face sort of teas that is bold and strong and very much a BLACK tea! I think i may hold on to this one and not let my parents have it lol. they have plenty of others coming from me heh

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.
