6059 Tasting Notes
wow. another from MissB and i have to say this was like a trip down memory lane to when i first started drinking loose leaf tea and my favourite tea ever was madam butterfly from the tea emporium here in toronto. this tea…smells exactly like it, only with a bit of pineapple that comes through. While i’m a little tired of that flavour, it was nice to revisit a memory and try and new take on it. thanks for sharing missb!
another cup from terri apparently i like vanilla oolongs. This is the second one i’ve had – the first being from adagio and there’s justs omething about vanilla + oolongs that work for me. This has been a great cup of tea this afternoon while the other half and i game a little and relax. thanks terri!
this is another from terri and while i’m not an oolong fan, i do love me some ginger! haha while this is a really pleasant roasty oolong, all i’m really getting here is peach. And i’m a little peached out. I really can’t taste any ginger. I have a feeling if this was a ginger oolong i’d be all over getting more of this…but the way it stands? i’m good with just this taste! thanks terri!
terri sent these my way and i couldn’t find an entry in the database for them. So here’s hoping i didn’t create a duplicate. these are very sweet…and fruity and don’t have the least bit of that dark black tea taste that i love about other flowering cones that i’ve had. that being said, these are quite delicious and even cold (i forgot about my tea) the brew is delicious to drink! thanks for letting me try another flowering cone terri!
terri sent this one my way – i haven’t had any opportunity to try white2tea so i was happy to see this. I treated this like i do most puerh and brewed it gonfu style this morning since that’s what’s recommended on the website. I’m still working on it, though i can say that this is a lighter tea but not without flavour. i’m still waking up so i’ll try to write more later. but this is a win.
Another from the magic box. I had some less than stellar experiences with some of the tea emporium’s teas so i haven’t been back in a while, but this tea called out to me to try even if only because i miss my walter bishop tea :( this tea smells divine! in fact a lot like WB… brewed the rooibos is decent, not that woodsy srt of rooibos that ruins delicious teas. It’s got a very nice strawberry flavour to it, though i’m not sure i’d call this one “shortCAKE.” it’s good though…very tasty and would probably be delicious as a latte!
Final Count: 161 (plus the travelling tea box)
I’m with MissB on this one…looks like an oolong. I figured today was the day to try this one since i’ve had all sorts of things i wouldn’t normally drink today. This one is a green/mint/blergamot blend….
brewed, this is much more mint than anything…but you can tell the blergfactor is there. mostly though…not something i would drink again. I appreciate the share though MissB!! it’s a lot of fun getting to try these teas out.
this one came my way stephanie via terri. I was a little hesitant about drinking this one. Flowers and i don’t really get along….esp not rose. That being said, once this one is brewed, it’s much more tea than rose. Still though, not something i really need in my life, though i’m always happy to try out random teas haha :) thanks ladies!!
