4923 Tasting Notes

Stacy sent this one my way as a sample in my most recent order. I’m glad she did, since it wouldn’t be something i would leap all over. This is neither a roasty sort of darjeeling OR a green sort. it’s somewhere in the middle of all of that. :) i’m getting lemon and…hay? and it’s overall really sort of juicy. there’s no astringency and there’s a bit of a sweetness here that is really nice. i’m intrigued by this tea. May need to look at getting more of this to play with unless it’s gone before i can order again heh. I recommend trying this one out EVEN if you aren’t normally a fan of darjeelings. I find most darjeelings a little hard to drink with a few expections here and there. For me, this falls in to the latter category and this doesn’t remind me of your typical darjeeling.

I love darjeelings, and this sounds so special!

Sil

I don’t really like darjeelings and this one was really tasty and interesting :) a win for sure!

farewell martha! You were great while you were around and now you’re gone. This is probably one of the few Adagio teas that i quite enjoyed, enough to hold out on finishing the tin even though it’s an “older” tea that was supposed to be trying to get our of my cupboard heh.

this was another from dexter I’ve reacently fallen out of love with Peach, which is funny because that’s the first “flavoured” tea i really gravitated towards. This particular peach isn’t bad. I like that it’s blended against a yellow tea, making it a little different than some of the others that i’ve had. That being said, while it’s a nice tea because i’m not in love with peach currently, it’s not a hit for me. HOWEVER, for those looking for a light peach tea, this one is pretty nice :)

Dexter

Sorry – I sent you a lot of peach…. not sure I realized you and peach had broken up. Will try to send you more variety next time. :))

Sil

Hahaha no no it’s all good. Fruit teas are generally ok…. It’s the green + peach. But it’s all good. I have an other half to make drink things too when I cold brew them

drank Baked Ali Shan by Butiki Teas

Stacy sent along a sample of this one for me to try :)

this is an oolong, which is not usually my faouvite, so bear that in mind. This particular oolong is halfway between a green oolong and what i call a roasty oolong. :) there’s a efeling of “green” to this one but it’s not over powering, while on the other hand there is also a more bread/nut like taste? it’s also got a bit of a juicy feel to it, though not like say a dragonwell :) Ont the whole, this was quite nice, though i’d rather see it in a blend than drink it all by itself :) Worth checking out for those of you that like oolongs!

drank Strawberry Meringue by Cornelia Bean
4923 tasting notes

another from VariaTEA this one was also a miss for me, but not as badly as the previous one. There’s almost like a vague memory of strawberry here, and i’m not sure i’d pin point anything as “meringue” A fairly uneventuful cup of tea for me, but again, i dDO like trying teas! so thank you Variatea!

VariaTEA

I didn’t have high hopes for most of the teas I shared but I shared them because you had not had them before. Nonetheless, I am sorry they aren’t more enjoyable. This one in particular may have been better if Cornelia Bean added more than just two meringue pieces to the whole 50g bag.

Sil

haha i never mind… you never know what surprises you might find :) regardless i always appreciate the share!

Another tea from variaTEA to be honest this one was a miss for me. It just tasted like a bland black tea with some sort of vague flavouring. I didn’t really get maple or strawberry out of this one :( oh well, another tea of the list of ALL THE TEAS!

drank Fujian Beauty by Tealux
4923 tasting notes

dexter sent this one my way with her mini brithday package for me so i figured i’d give it a whirl asap since it’s a small one to drink up and i wanted a few straight teas this morning before i get in to some of my other samples.

This tea is delicious! It’s god a good heft to it – thick and malty while also having a sweetness to it. i am a fan! I may need to add this to my eventual tealux order if i ever get my cupboard under control. No spending this month!

Dexter

I think this is a solid Fujian black tea – and considering it’s only 3.00/25g and you can quite often get 20% off that, it’s really economical. Great tea that is cheap enough to drink every day. Happy that you enjoyed it. :))

Sil

oooh good to know!

drank Honey Black Tea by Green Terrace Teas
4923 tasting notes

thank you again for the generous sample green terrace tea! I need to try the other samples you sent soon (aiming for this weekend!). I am still a fan of this tea, though it may not be my favourite honey black tea. I like that there almost seems to be a hint of something in the background of this tea beyond the sweet honey taste. Maybe it’s plum? either way, this was a great cup to start my morning off :)

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.
