5357 Tasting Notes
the tea…it is all gone. fini! done! over. Having a last cup of this delicious tea while i watch a little tv before bed. I’m exausted and need to try to get to bed early so i’m enjoying it with this one. I’ll have to pick up more of this from Steam, once i get my cupboard a little more under control. It’s delicious!

i bought this a little while ago when i was in chicago and picking up teas for a steepsterite. I wouldn’t normally have picked this up, because i don’t care about “decaf” but since it smelled exactly like the caffeine version, i picked up a little on a whim. Mostly for those days when i haven’t eaten and caffeine is really affecting me. Made a cup tonight to have while watching a movie with my other half… quite tasty :)
mmmm i enjoy this tea a bunch but it’s not my favourite strawberry blend. I actually thing that the bamboo side of this blend takes away from what is a really tasty strawberry tea. I know a few folks who haven’t had a chance to try many, if any, tea gschwewerowuo9kwelekw]erewr teas…so the last little bit of this is off to a swap box for them. Man…so many teas to send out to tea friends heh
I received this one as a free sample with my WP order. It was one that i had considered ordering, so i was happy to see it. Brewed, this is a smooth tea, with hints of cocoa, malt with an almost fruitiness to it. It’s not my favourite of the WP teas, but i can understand why so many folks love this one. I throroughly enjoyed this cup, but i’m going to pass the other half of my wee sample over to a friend to try as i think this one might be something they’ll enjoy too!
no rating on this one – another from Terri. This type of oolong is not my favourite even though it’s a roasty oolong. There’s a taste to these that just never works for me, no matter how much i try. This is a smooth tea though, so i recommend giving it a try if rui gui oolongs are something you enjoy :)
In other news, my creamy basil tomato soup with tortellini is delicious! so happy :)
mmm another tea from terri. As most of you know, oolongs and i don’t really get along, though the roasty variety does better by me. I’ve found a few that i’ve really loved, but on the whole if i had to eliminate them from my tea cupboard, it wouldn’t kill me :)
This is a roasty oolong, but there is a really sweet note in this brew that i quite like. I had a few infusions of this and rather enjoyed them. I would recommend this to anyone who really likes roasty oolongs with a little sweetness :) (f oolongs were my thing this would likely be closer to an 85, but i can still taste OOLONG…which i’m not a fan of)
another from terri! I’m attempting to get to 115 teas today while i work on making soup; cleaning the house; seasoning my first teapot and possibly baking something delicious to go with our homemade mac and cheese tonight. All our friends are off visiting family for the holiday so we have a grand ol’ day of doing nothing at the house…no commitments,just relaxing and enjoying things. Sadly this tea is not my favorite. there’s a note i’m getting here that is just meh… boring and meh. I’ll pass the rest of this off to cavo and see if it works for her heh
