7534 Tasting Notes
mmmm i enjoy this tea a bunch but it’s not my favourite strawberry blend. I actually thing that the bamboo side of this blend takes away from what is a really tasty strawberry tea. I know a few folks who haven’t had a chance to try many, if any, tea gschwewerowuo9kwelekw]erewr teas…so the last little bit of this is off to a swap box for them. Man…so many teas to send out to tea friends heh
I received this one as a free sample with my WP order. It was one that i had considered ordering, so i was happy to see it. Brewed, this is a smooth tea, with hints of cocoa, malt with an almost fruitiness to it. It’s not my favourite of the WP teas, but i can understand why so many folks love this one. I throroughly enjoyed this cup, but i’m going to pass the other half of my wee sample over to a friend to try as i think this one might be something they’ll enjoy too!
no rating on this one – another from Terri. This type of oolong is not my favourite even though it’s a roasty oolong. There’s a taste to these that just never works for me, no matter how much i try. This is a smooth tea though, so i recommend giving it a try if rui gui oolongs are something you enjoy :)
In other news, my creamy basil tomato soup with tortellini is delicious! so happy :)
mmm another tea from terri. As most of you know, oolongs and i don’t really get along, though the roasty variety does better by me. I’ve found a few that i’ve really loved, but on the whole if i had to eliminate them from my tea cupboard, it wouldn’t kill me :)
This is a roasty oolong, but there is a really sweet note in this brew that i quite like. I had a few infusions of this and rather enjoyed them. I would recommend this to anyone who really likes roasty oolongs with a little sweetness :) (f oolongs were my thing this would likely be closer to an 85, but i can still taste OOLONG…which i’m not a fan of)
another from terri! I’m attempting to get to 115 teas today while i work on making soup; cleaning the house; seasoning my first teapot and possibly baking something delicious to go with our homemade mac and cheese tonight. All our friends are off visiting family for the holiday so we have a grand ol’ day of doing nothing at the house…no commitments,just relaxing and enjoying things. Sadly this tea is not my favorite. there’s a note i’m getting here that is just meh… boring and meh. I’ll pass the rest of this off to cavo and see if it works for her heh
i have a confession to make. Jin jun mei is terri’s tea. It’s one of the few places where our tastes diverge as she loves a good jin jun mei, while i haven’t yet found one that knocked my socks off. This one, is so far, one of the ones i’ve enjoyed the most. Terri gave me a package of this one to try and it’s really nice. Lots of sweetness here to enjoy. It still won’t win me over completely but i’m glad to have tried it. Now to find others that i like :)
i snuck some of this from terri’s overflowing cupboard when i was there just to see if this was something i can get behind. I for sure got the chocolatey notes in this one as i had it this morning, but there’s something about the base of the tea that isn’t my favourite. An enjoyable cup, but i’m glad to just have my little sample cup to drink:)
last cup of tea tonight since i got distracted with vacation planning. We’re trying to decide between a new place in cuba (different from where we went before) with upgraded butler service etc…as a splurge OR a 7 day disney cruise to a bunch of places we haven’t been before. both options being equally awesome. :)
I am enjoying this tea a bunch. It’s a nice ginger tea that still retains the citrus aspect which makes it a little less intensely ginger, but still has a bit of a kick to it, which i enjoy a bunch.
Final count: 123 (i may make it to the teens after all before tuesday!)
