7177 Tasting Notes

pretty sure this is the one YYZ sent me even though it’s not in her cupboard, nor has she logged a note haha. Mostly because the other one from this company was labelled differently. this one is lighter, and not too malty. it’s more of a sweet/semi malty, more fruity than anything sort of except not really fruity tea. :) it was a good start to my morning earlier in the day after NO TEA yesterday! gasp

Gotta make up for lost time! LOL

yyz

Yes this is from me. Totally agree with what you said! Sometimes I get caramel out of this tea, but it definitely is less chocolatey and complex than the other Rizhao’s.

drank Maracaibo by Crio Bru

variaTEA thought she was being helpful when she made this listing but all that means is that now i HAVE to put it in my cupboard whereas before i could pretend that it wasn’t eta and so therefore didn’t need to be added lol. I had this one iced in omgsrsly style tonight when i got home after a very long day. Let me tell you, the only thing better was addeing a splash of criollo to this for a bit of sweetness and alcohol ha!

VariaTEA

My bad. Honestly, I made the page cuz I am anal and figured Cavalla was on here so this should be too

Sil

Lmao you know I’m just giving you a hard time silly

OMGsrsly

Ohh, good idea Sil! I’ll have to find some booze for it.

VariaTEA

I know. Don’t worry. I will make pages for ALL the Crio Bru teas and then I will share them with you so you have that much more tea :P

I ended up mixing all of this with CB because the combo is just so much better! And, now it only takes up ONE spot in my cupboard. Bwahahah.

I feel bad because cavocorax sent this to me and i’m reviewing this before her and i literally have NOTHING to say about this because i had a no good very bad day and all i can recall was that it was like other TTC teas and i enjoyed it, though it didn’t knock my socks off. Which means it’s likely about an 83 ish but i’m not sure i could pick it out of a line up of TTC teas lol.

Cavocorax

Sorry your day was so rough! And, I’m sure I’ll give it the review it deserves at some point!

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

i didn’t expect work to be so busy today. I’m really glad that i thought to add this to my travel mug today since it’s gotten me through a painful afternoon. I have zero clue how i’m going to manage to get on track and sleep. seems to be a choice between one or the other these days.

creamy? yes. rhubarb? negative. tasty? yeah apart from not actually tasting like rhubarb :) thanks for sending this one my way omgsrsly i’ll enjoy the rest of this but clearly not a reorder, though at least it doesn’t smell or taste like feet… ;)

boychik

Is there any good strawberry rhubarb tea? Doesn’t need to be creamy

OMGsrsly

This one wasn’t too impressive to me either. Boychik, I haven’t found a tea that I really felt was rhubarby enough.

TeaBrat

Lupicia makes a strawberry rhubarb black tea, I liked it

drank Bartlet Pear by Steam Tea House

thank you omgsrsly for braving the PEAR to pick this upt for me (and i think dexter?) I am actually really enjoying this one, though i think i’ll let it steep a little longer next time as the rooibos is coming through but not enough of the pear is. This is pear juice. like the juice from fruit cups…except mixed with the rooibos it’s not nearly as sweet or intense…it’s tasty delicious. i just want.moar.pear. :)

OMGsrsly

Oh, I sent the rest to Anna. Sorry Dexter! If you want some I can grab a sample for you.

Sil

No I can send her some..you sent me lots :) I just couldn’t remember who the other person was lol

OMGsrsly

Ok! Phew. Yeah, I sent the rest of the package to Anna. :)

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA
7177 tasting notes

ok..so hot brewed, i MUCH prefer the taste of this one….HOWEVER…i can’t drink it…there is something seriously bothersome about the aroma of this tea that makes my mouth rebel with every thought of drinking it. I plugged my nose and did drink it to be able to try it hot brewed, but man i cannot get past that smell lol thanks for letting me try variaTEA!

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.
