5241 Tasting Notes

I am digging this one. I’ve been drinking steeps of this over the morning in an effort to hold to my goal of getting through the samples that terri sent me of a variety of puerhs! Initial impressions, so that i don’t lose that is that this is a very creamy puerh. I’m going to toss the leaves to cold brew once i’m done with them just to see how that works but overall impressions of this so far is that this is just delicious!

Another one from cavocorax I’m not sure how i feel about this one yet…and i totally didn’t pay attention to steeping time. It’s got a honeybush woodsy, spicy taste to it. I like the orange and sandalwood flavouring….yep this is an interesting one. Different, not bad…and something i’m going to play with a bit and see where i end up feeling about haha thanks cavo!

mmmmm thank you cavocorax! I quite like this one. It’s creamy and nougaty and over all pretty darn delicious. I’m glad i have enough for a couple of cups of this so i can figure out where this should sit in terms of re-orders/ rotations in my cupboard. mmmm really nice!

Cavocorax

Did I wrap those well enough for you? :)
ALL THE LAYERS!!!

Sil

Yep. I lost a little of one of the teas omg sent me though because I expected a bag in the tin foil lol. Haha

OMGsrsly

I’m bad about that one. I made bags out of the tin foil..

Sil

lol it’s ok. I just wasn’t expecting it. I did catch most of the team on my lap though..so that’s good :)

OMGsrsly

I finally managed to get little plastic baggies! So next time it will be safer.

Kittenna

Ooh, glad I read this, otherwise I might have lost some Lemon Basil Oolong! Also, the teas are wrapped awesomely, Cavo :D

sipdown! had a small cup of this to say farewell as the last of this is being popped into swaps this weekend :) A lovely no caffeine tea, but i prefer stacy’s other herbals..plus this reminds me too much of creamy eggnog and i love that tea! haha

drank Organic Guranse by Butiki Teas

Another winner from stacy – I’m enjoying this one quite a bit as a breakfast cup of tea. It’s not as exciting as some of my favourites from her, but there is something to this one that says “oh hello…let me ease you in to the morning…” :)

Indigobloom

This does sound amazing!!

Sipdown! Kicked off the morning with this one as there was enough to finish this off in one big Sil sized mug :) I have really enjoyed this one, so it might have to go on my re-order list from steam…unless i just want to try more of their teas haha thanks omgsrsly!

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
5241 tasting notes

last cup of the evening and very nearly a sipdown! Looking forward to finishing this one off so that i can focus on my delicious lime chiffon and orance and cream from della terra!

Cavocorax

Mmmmm. 2 more months until I can place a DTT order! I’ve been out of Lime Chiffon for ages!

Sil

We’ll have to consolidate our order since i find even when i try new teas in my order because of the discounts i can usually only get to about 25$ worth of tea lol

Cavocorax

Hahah> Yeah I think my biggest order was about $30 with shipping. Consolidating makes sense!

drank Raspberry Nectar by Tea Forte
5241 tasting notes

sipdown and well, i don’t have much to say about this one because i’m tired but i actually LIKE this one. I have a few more cups worth in the fridge to drink up and i’ll enjoy them all! it’s a tart rasberry drink that i might think about purchasing again next summer to have around. this plus a little lemonade would be super yummy~!

Terri HarpLady

oooh, raspberry lemonade!

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I really liked this one too. I agree it would be good with some lemonade!

drank Chocolate Cherry Bomb! by The Tea Spot
5241 tasting notes

sipdown….not that i’m concerned about that until next weekend since tomorrow i pick up the travelling tea box and tuesday i’ll be getting my american tea room order. so no point in even trying to work on sipdowns until i get those teas in, my swaps out and the travelling teabox out. heh This one hasn’t been too bad, but likely not a reorder.

keychange

OOooooh! what’re you ordering from the American tea Room?

TeaBrat

I haven’t found a cherry tea yet that I thought was any good…

Sil

i ordered brioche finally – poor tastybrew can stop having to send me samples to tie me over lol as well as 11 other sample sizes and a larger size of the caramel black…never tried it but figure if i don’t love it, lots of ppl like caramel blacks heh

Sil

Amy – most of them are pretty much cough syrup. the chocoalte offsets that in this one so it’s not like those types but it’s also not cherry enough

keychange

oh! didn’t know they had a caramel black. I should look into that.

Terri HarpLady

I tried teaspot’s chocolate cherry bomb awhile back. It was good, but also not something I’d buy again.

Cavocorax

Hmmm. I’ll have to try this one today now that you guys have reminded me of it! Also, it’ll get me closer to a sipdown!

Sil

yep..you have enough for 2ish sil sized mugs haha

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.
