Now THIS is a roasty oolong that i would seriously consider getting more of. I like that there’s a hint of that charcol note, but it’s not overly coming through and what IS coming through in the taste is smoother and less…charcol like than others i’ve had? This is a really smooth tasting cup of delicious. I pretty much made it, sat down to start thinking about it and writing something, and it’s already all gone. Thank you ever so much for sending this one to me Ysaurella I think i really DO need to place that theodor order soon!!

Kittenna

That sounds delicious.

Anna

We’re all so ridiculously spoiled by Ysaurella. She’s like the fairy godmother of tea.

Sil

yeah…i always feel like our swaps are one sided…so much deliciousness coming from her

Anna

Let’s send her a PONY.

Sil

bwahahahahaha oh man just totally imagining that

Sil

haha too funny

Ysaurella

lol I imagine the face of my cat…ding dong…opening the door and find a Pony….
This tea is wonderful, I love it very much and surely it would become a staple in my cupboard.
I’m very pleased you like it so much

I have to say…this one was a little bizarre :) While i am not a HUGE fan of oolongs, i do enjoy them from time to time. I also really like fruity teas. this tea confuses me though… it’s like LOOK i’m an OOLONG! oh wait.. TRICKED YOU! hahahaha. yeah…

Ysaurella

it is clearly an Oolong, a fruity Oolong :)

drank Grand Oolong Fancy by Mariage Frères
6037 tasting notes

Another oolong from Ysaurella it appears that today was the day that i decided to drink a number of the teas she sent me. This one, is an interesting tea. I an enjoying it, though it doesn’t do nearly the same things to me as it does my favourite companion from france :) However, this could almost….almost teach me to enjoy oolongs! thank you for sharing!

Kittenna

Is this along the same lines as the Sparrow’s Tongue oolong from Butiki? Or different story, just lacking that oolonginess you find objectionable?

Kittenna

Upon further inspection, it looks not to be a green oolong, so not like Sparrow’s Tongue, haha.

Sil

lacking what i don’t like haha

Ysaurella

it is a very mellow but very very mellow Oolong, I’m glad it helps you to appreciate Oolongs

drank J.E Oolong Milky by THE O DOR
6037 tasting notes

as a non fan of oolongs, I’m happy ysaurella sent me a sample since she and I have similar feelings regarding oolongs most of the time. :) Since she enjoys this one, i figured i would likely enjoy it as well. And i was right! this has a really nice milk oolong taste without that oily weird thing that sometimes happens with milk oolongs. The flavour was smooth and creamy without being too vegetal or too fake tasting. i think this one and Mandala’s are probably my favourite as far as milk oolongs go.

Merci encore une fois madam!

Ysaurella

I’m so happy you loved this one ! I looooove it but me I am an Oolong lover :)

Sil

Must have you confused with someone else… for some reason i thought you didn’t like oolongs.. ah well..either way it was lovely!

Ysaurella

I think we are sisters in Darjeelings in fact :) I am not a huge fan but love some.

Sil

yes! i must have been thinking of darjeelings!

Not much to say on this one besides i am having a grand time drinking it up this morning. I’m working from home today and feeling incredibly productive even with my minimal sleep over the past couple of days. The last piece of this is off to Cavocorax so that she can try it out and see what other delights she wants to explore from Mandala :)

drank Mayflower by Mariage Frères
6037 tasting notes

Ysaurella sent this my way and after smelling it, i didn’t actually think i would enjoy this one. Well, I was wrong. :) It won’t be my favourite MF tea but there is something intriguing about this particular blend even though there is a note in there that confuses me. This is a pleasant fruity tea with maybe a hint of floral to it, but clearly nothing overly strong or i wouldn’t like it. The fig is hiding in this a little but it’s there if you look for it.
Thank you madam! this was a pleasant surprise :)

Ysaurella

this is a nice blend even if not among my favourite MF

Another from courtney that is really quite nice. I like the faint astringency in this one that offsets the sweetness that comes from this. I like this one quite a bit, and is likely my favourite of the ronnefeldt teas that courtney was kind enough to pass on to me. I’ll rather enjoy finishing up the rest of this that i have :)

Courtney

Hah this was my favourite too.

drank Margaret's Hope by Ronnefeldt Tea
6037 tasting notes

trying to get to my samples today since there’s a package at the post office that could be one of two things – both with a number of teas. :) This one was from courtney and is not a bad cup for this morning. There’s a bit of astringency in the cup, which i don’t mind at all in this particular case. This continues to reaffirm my opinion that ronnefeldt teas are sort of middle ground for me, so totally doable at a reasonable price point, but not something i MUST HAVE. so thanks for the wide range of teas from them to try courtney!

drank Raspberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
6037 tasting notes

This is a distinctive level matcha. It appears that raspberry just isn’t a doable flavour for me when it comes to redleaf. There’s an underlying artificial presence to the raspberry that i can’t get past. It’s not there for strawberry or some of the other berry flavours but with raspberry, it’s all i focus on. Oh well, lots of other flavours i love from Redleaf!

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.
