4026 Tasting Notes

drank White Coconut Dulce by TeBella
4026 tasting notes

Thank you Rachel for a great idea surrounding 7 swans for our 12 days of christmas tea swap!

So i have to be honest…i don’t like coconut. It ruins everything lol especially shredded coconut. blech. HOWEVER…this tea is pretty good, considering my hatred of coconut :) I’m going to find a good home for the rest of my sample since i really think that this is a tea that a lot of people will love. It’s got a milky, creamy coconut thing going on that’s not overpowering…as daisychubb mentioned, it’s delicate and full of flavour all at once.

Holding off of rating this one since this is a total thing rather than the tea being bad. If i loved coconut i’d probably be putting this at an 85+.

Thank you so much for the share Rachel! I love trying new teas!

Kittenna

OH PICK ME!!!!!!! :D :D For a new home! I’d love to try this!

Sil

Haha can do. Ill add it to the box :)

Kittenna

That is exciting. Also, I will note that you dislike coconut! I don’t think I knew that.

Babble

Coconut is hit or miss for me, which is why this tea was so surprising to me. I thought it gave it a nice sweetness. Glad the tea is finding a good home, one way or the other :)

Sil

kittenna – it’s more miss than hit, and i’l always try things with coconut in it but it’s not my fav.

Rachel – for sure! I’m glad i got to try it, but i suspect that kittenna will love it more than me :) So i’d rather spread the holiday joy haha

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

perfect afternoon tea to relax with after our AMAAAAAZING team lunch for the holidays. Most of the team is gone next week so we had a super amazing lunch at a french bistro restaurant. Can you say steak? frites? garlic mayo? oysters? red wine? and more! delicious! In any case, after getting back from that i had some much needed tea to relax with and tie up some loose ends.

Cheers to the weekend!

drank Cantaloupe & Cream by Butiki Teas
4026 tasting notes

8 maids a milking! I am loving this tea for the 12 days of christmas tea swap. I’ve had this tea before but it’s one of those teas that i often passby because it doesn’t seem right for whatever mood i’m in. The trouble is, as soon as i actually sit down to try it, i fall in love with it again and wonder why i haven’t had it in so long. haha

This really is a wonderful balance of fruit and cream. Thank you for the reminder of how delicious this tastes The Purrfect Cup!

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

YAY for bold wonderful delicious black tea in the morning. I’m also working on trying the strawberry rhubarb blend that stacy has created but no longging that one…yet. I really am enjoying the unflavoured blacks from Stacy. there’s no astringency and they just have so much flavour going on.

I really need to try some of Stacy’s unflavoured teas. I am LOVING my verdant order so far, and you make Stacy’s unflavoured blacks sound pretty irresistible.

Sil

I REALLY like her premium Taiwanese Assam….this one as well. Her other blacks are also enjoyable but those two seem to be my fav. Different experience from say laoshan black but just as tasty IMO.

drank Mango Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Sip down!

Another mango smoothie this morning to finish up the last of my matcha. I have two unopened packages of other flavours in my cupobard so i’m itching to sip down a bit more of the ones i have so that I can open them to try them and then of course, place another order to restock my cupboard with my favourites!

Really enjoyed this one while i had it.

drank Pancake Breakfast Black Tea by 52teas
4026 tasting notes

About falling asleep in my chair ATM. Another great tea from the 12 days of Christmas swap! Tanks to tattooed tea as I’ve been interested in trying this for a while now. It’s maple….it’s batter…it’s pancake….even cold this reminds me of breakfast… So fait accomplis!

drank Cranberry Orange Spice by Tea & Bloom
4026 tasting notes

On the 6th day of christmas, tatooed_tea gave to us…a smorgashboard of breakfast themed teas! It’s been a stupidly long day for me so i’m only just now getting to try this one….the 4 others may need to wait. :(

However, this is a really nice blend of spices. I don’t get a lot of cranberry, but that doesn’t make this an unenjoyable tea. It reminds me of a delightful cup of mulled spice cider, without the apple flavour.

Thank you for sharing this tea with us! Especially since the store doesn’t have an online presence. YAY for local tea shops!

Boo for long days! atleast your meetings are over :)

I am loving the straight black teas from Butiki Teas! While some are more amazing than others, there haven’t been any that i haven’t enjoyed. i like the deep flavour of this one and how it rolls around in my mouth :)

drank Mango Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4026 tasting notes

wuick smoothie this morning to go with my breakfast! My wonderful other half woke up on his day off to cook me breakfast because we’ve both been so busy the past few months that he hasn’t had time to do it. Nothing says delicious like salsa eggs and a mango smoothie!
I likely won’t pick this up again, as it’s starting to come across more like mango+rind but it’s been a good run.

Day 5 of the christmas tea swap! Thank you Daisychubb for the awesome packaging job :) While DT is a staple here in canada, I don’t frequent it often so it was nice to try another tea from their line up. This is a pretty decent tea. Thanks again for this!

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.
