drank Nadeshiko by Camellia Sinensis

picked this one up from CS because i wanted to try something that was a little different from other teas that i’ve had. Sipping this, i’m still not sure what to make of it. It reminds me of another tea that i’ve had before…this is not your typical black tea. there’s an almost plum-y depth to this while also being kind of like a bold port like drink. this is a really strong, distinct tea. Holding out on rating this until i have it a couple more times.

first cup of the morning because i really wanted to start the day with something i knew that i love. With so many samples in my cupboard, it’s hard not to rush through them all…but since they can be hit or miss, it’s nice to have a few cups of things i like for sure.

I know what you mean. There are days when I just want old favourites.

Sil

:) at least i’m finally getting to a point after 2.5yrs that i know what the old favourites are that i want hahaha

juliebeth

ooooh, i just found some of this in my tea stash that i’d never opened. perhaps i’ll start on it in the morning.

I can see why ost might not have liked these. Again, i’m finding the teas from What-cha to be just a little different than other teas that i’ve had from other companies. Not bad, just different…i’ll have to look in to whether it’s the regions or what…though i know on some of them that IS the difference.

These are deep, heavy pearls….they do have a malty taste to them but there’s also a note in here that isn’t honey…it’s a bit of a sweetness – maybe cherry? with something that could almost be smoke if you thought too hard about it lol

Ost

Aha, I think I am probably just really picky xD

Description on this one says stunning chocolate aroma and taste. All that makes me want to do is see if omgsrsly gets dirt from this one too. dry, this really does smell like chocolate/cocoa. However, i get more of a metallic, earthy sort of taste to this while drinking it. it’ll be intersting to see how others find this one…as it’s another “different” tea. having fun with these what-cha samples.

Anlina

Oh I want to try these Korean teas so bad!

Anlina

I really need to stop looking at What-cha’s site or my resolve is going to break down and I’m going to place another order.

Sil

i’ve got a few more in my order..might help you narrow down your choices..

Anlina

I will be keeping an eye on your tasting notes :)

Sil

I’ll try not to write totally crappy notes lol

OMGsrsly

You can send me dirt teas and I’ll share some blerg. ;) (Actually I wouldn’t mind. As long as I had some warning!)

drank Christmas Afternoon by Twinings

Another one from MissB as i desperately need to finish up those teas so that i can get them parcelled out and shared with everyone else lol I wasn’t a huge fan of this one…it tasted more like a generic “christmas spice” sort of tea than anything else. It wasn’t bad, but nothing i’m dying to have again or keep around…

this was a sample included in my dragon tea house order and one that i would totally pick up again, though it’s VERY similar to other teas that i love for the same reasons…malty, cocoa-y, dark and delicious. So price would factor in..also the shipping…DH took over a month to get to me, which makes me a sad panda.

I’mfinding tjhast custos is holding Chinese packages for quite a while recently. They held teavivre for close to a week and one of my Ali purchases for close to three weeks. I wonder if they’re back logged or it’s a work to rule thing going on? Neither would surprise me.

Sil

that could be…esp with the holidays

drank Georgia Old Lady Black Tea by What-Cha
5761 tasting notes

I couldn’t resist picking this one up from what-cha during their sale, because of the name lol. What exactly does and old lady tea taste like? well in this case, there’s a fruitness here, which i guess you could call citrus, but i have a hard time distinguishing specific citrus tastes a lot of the time. this has echoes of your typical “red rose” tea but feels fancier and with more depth. Over all, a nice little cup for my first experience with What-Cha

JC

I read the name and I agree with you, the name calls for a try lol.

Lala

The name caught my attention but the red rose reeled me in. Canadian to the core I guess…

Sil

haha lala, i’ll add some to the box for you – consider it repayment for all your surprises :)

Lala

ha ha. Ok thanks. I would appreciate that. But not too many surprises, ok?…

i told omgsrsly that i would try this one today since we both ended up ordering it from CS during their sale the other week. This tea has super cute little curly buds that made me smile as i wasn’t expecting that today.

So i don’t actually get cocoa from this one…it’s more of a slightly sweet, malty tea..with a hint of “dirt?” lol maybe there’s a little cocoa there in the background if i concentrate, but this one is vastly different from other cocoa/chocolatey teas that i’ve had. I’ll have to try this one gonfu as well to see how that changes things up.

OMGsrsly

:D I’m planning on trying this one gong fu when I wake up.

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.
