travelling tea box A!

Not a tea i would normally purchase for myself but i figured i should use the tea box as an opportunity to try and few “not normal” teas for me since that’s the whole fun of a travelling tea box! This is a pretty average tea for me. It’s nothing i need to keep in the cupboard, but i wouldn’t be opposed to drinking more of this. it’s not as light or refreshing as other greens i’ve had, but that’s maybe a bit of why i like it.

travelling teabox!

So i’m fairly certain that “coocblanco” is this tea but on the off chance it’s not, that’s the name on the tea. I didn’t have high hopes for this one since i’m not a fan of coconut. But since i’ve only had one tea from whispering pines, i wanted to try another.

the dry aroma is pretty coconutty but there’s a sweetness or something hiding in the background. Steeped, there’s less of a coconut taste to this…almost like a fruityness here? Not sure. Overall, not what i want or expected, but still a half decent cup of tea regardless :)

drank Pomegranate Da Hong Pao by 52teas

Another one from the travelling tea box A. Another one i’m not impressed with. While i don’t mind the tea base on this one, I am not getting any sort of pomegranate flavour to this cup of tea. So it’s not a BAD tea, but it’s not a pomegranate tea.

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, that one just doesn’t sound right to me.

CHAroma

I had the exact same experience.

i had this today too, and will likely have a few more steepings now that i’m home. I think i prefer the other puerh i had from teavivre this past week, but not by much. this is a really nice mellow, refreshing puerh that i’m glad i have a bit more of!

Nxtdoor

A refreshing pu’erh ?!? Hrm…

Sil

Haha I love puerhs, there are a few I’d call refreshing :)

BoxerMama

Totally agree, some I could drink forever.

Terri HarpLady

Yup! Some of them have that minty kind of quality to them.

TeaKlutz

I think I got a sample of this with my order… I am really, really intrigued now.

Sil

I like the other one I had this week better but this one is lovely. I’m really starting to love my puerhs more and more…which is good cause I have 239847239847238476 samples to get through looks at terri

BoxerMama

this was one of my morning cups today for the first day of work after vacation! I needed it a bunch and i’m glad i had it. I really do love this blend :) Bumping the rating up as i’ve grown to love it more and more.

ifjuly

Still haven’t tried this one, need to get around to ordering a sample ‘cause they mention on the site it’s good iced. Mm!

Terri HarpLady

drank Holiday Green by Enchanted Teacup
4923 tasting notes

So the Travelling teabox A has finally arrived after some hiccups. As a result, i’ll be sampling a bunch of teas in the near future so that I don’t actually have to add them to my cupboard but i still get to try another of “ALL THE TEAS!” I have a short list of the teas i really want to try which i’m starting with and then if there’s time i’ll try a small cup of anything else left over ;)

I picked this one to start as it seems to have had the least amount of love in terms of people taking some of it. Greens are not my preferred cup of tea but the promise of a “sweet yet slightly spicy green blend” peaked my interest.

On the whole? this isn’t a terrible tea but it’s not all that wonderful for me. It’s a rather flat blend that is lacking in a distinct taste for all that there are berries and peppercorns in here. It’s for sure not spicy (and i’m a wuss when it comes to spicy things). It comes across as being pretty damn close to just a straight up green tea, though there is a flavour there that makes that not entirely possible to say. Overall? meh. Not terrible, but not at all what i’d hoped for.

drank Blood Orange Smoothie by The Tea Spot

Oh man. This smells amazing! Delicious orange and vanilla…even more delicious smelling than Della Terra’s orange cream. Brewed, this is slightly tart but the vanilla flavour is present. I died just a little honey to this one to see how that enhanced the flavour and it was delicious! This would likely be a close tie with Della Terra’s as this is more vanilla-y and closer to “real” orange, while Della Terra’s version is a bit creamier, closer to that creamsicle sweet taste. Both are delicious Nd I’m glad I have a little more of this one to play with :)

Cavocorax

Did I get any of this? :O

Sil

Yep. This is one of the super small samples Terri got for us to share. About enough for two normal ppl cups

Terri HarpLady

I’m so excited that you 2 are gonna get to hook up!! I want photos!

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.
