4046 Tasting Notes

drank jasmine black tea by Fleur Tea house
4046 tasting notes

this one came to me via keychange who knew that i wouldn’t likely enjoy this one but i WAS curious about a black jasmine versus a green jasmine, which seems to be the worst of everything for me. Soooo this one. yeah, i still don’t like it, and i couldn’t drink much of it…BUT! BUT! i actually DID prefer this to a green jasmine. Something about the black muted the floral blaaaaaaaah and made it close to tolerable…almost hahahaha. So thank you for sharing Keychange… it was a fun experiment :) Still a success for me!

drank Star Spangled Chai by The Devotea
4046 tasting notes

This was another tea from this evening. I wanted to try and hit 150 by the end of this coming weekend and i have a sneaking suspicion that the mail man is going to be mean and have all my stuff show up on friday. This is a pretty muted chai, though the addition of the star anise meant that it had a little bit of that licorice flavour to it. My other half commented while it was brewing that he smelled licorice heh. I wouldn’t go out of my wany to get this one again, but it was nice to have a chai that was slightly different from what i was used to. AND the clove flavour wasn’t over powering in this one so it gets bonus points for that. :) thanks terri!

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

thanks a bunch to cavocorax who let me sneak a cup of this to drink. Sadly, i now want to steal the rest of the bag that she split with kitenna in our joint order. Seriously…i’m not an oolong fan but this is just a melon tea. delicious. and all gone. and now i’m sad.

drank Lemon and Rose by Whittard of Chelsea
4046 tasting notes

Another from awkward soul, via Terri, but it’s not for me. This has a fairly strong floral presence which meant I couldn’t get much past the first couple of sips :( off to someone else who might like it more!

Helena

well it had rose in the name.. that should be a hint :D I can’t stand overly floral teas :D

Sil

sometimes the floral takes a back seat…sometimes lol

farewell delicious tea….i will miss you and search for you again. The last cup was a perfect balance of chocolate and orange. Life is good.

Final Count: 170

VariaTEA

Curse you! My final count is 197 but luckily many are sample sizes. On the other hand, I need to keep hydrated which means I need to add an additional cup of water/non-caffeinated tea for every cup of caffeinated tea I have and that slows me down :(

Sil

I’m hoping i can be back at 150 by the end of the weekend.

Another tea from awkward soul via Terri. I figured i should have one green tea today..i guess. Frankly the whole commercial weirdo holiday thing makes my brain hurt. This is a really lovely vanilla mint green tea. I know it SAYS raspberry but to my there’s only the hint of fruitiness in thebackground. It’s like the raspberry isn’t quite ready to come out and play. It DOES add something to the tea as it’s not quite JUST a vanilla mint green..but it’s not strong enough for me to say YES! Raspberry! YES!

Bio

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.
