drank Kenyan Black by Justea
6338 tasting notes

sipdown! i really need to try the other teas from justea as i have enjoyed this one. It doesn’t top my list of blacks, but it is a solid cup of black. a little astringency but nothing that makes it undrinkable. mmmmm nice afternoon tea before dinner time. though i should probably stuop with the caffeine given that i need to go to sleep and then get up again at 3:30am for testing heh

drank Guava Tea by Ten Ren Tea

Another one from kaylee this one is a pretty delicious fruity tea. I think it might be best as a cold brew but as a hot brew it was a pretty nice guava fruit tea. It reminded me a little of the tea i had while in china.

drank Green Tea with Coconut by T Salon

thank you kaylee!

this is a fairly average green tea with coconut. It’s not bad, but if i was going to drink a coconut tea, i’d probably stick with mango coconut from tea forte :)

drank Strawberry Cream by Unknown from China
6338 tasting notes

FInally getting around to try this one from when i was in china. This isn’t a bad rooibos, though the strawberry is slightly artificial tasting. It’s not as creamy as i’d love it to be, but still, this is leaning towards being similar to walter bishop but with rooibos. Too bad this wasn’t honeybush!

thanks kaylee! This is one from my swap with kaylee and one i was excited for. I’m always looking for caffeine free blends for days when caffeine seems to be bothering me. This isn’t a bad brew but i’m not sure it’s really gingersnap cookie to me. I do like the ginger flavouring, so i may play with this one similar to what kaylee tried and add some sugar and milk. Over all though, a nice ginger cup of tea :)

drank Milky Wu Long by Le Palais des Thes

sipdown, since i’m saving the rest for one of the girls here to punk since i do not appreciate oolongs the way that some of them do. This comes across overall to me as boring. There isn’t enough going on here for me to dislike it, but nothing about it encourages me to love it either lol overall just an average oolong.

drank White Monkey by Little Red Cup Tea Co.
6338 tasting notes

sipdown! This was a sample from Little Red Cup Tea Company. The sample they sent was more than generous, which is why i’m passing along the other half of my sample to Terri, to help spread the word about their teas. This is a delicious tea! it’s nothing like a green tea…instead it comes across as more of a white tea, but with a bit more flavour than i’m used to in whites. it’s sweet, not overly floral, though there is a bit of that. i quite like this one, and hope my tea sister does as well. Looking forward to trying the keemun from the same company too!

drank Fig Formosa Oolong by Angelina's Teas
6338 tasting notes

sipdown! (246) I wasn’t expecting much from this after seeing terri’s review. She passed on a little of this one for me to try. Fig teas always interest me, mostly because i know gracebtlb is on the look out for a great fig tea. This is not it grace! not unless you think figs = grape. because all i get from this one is grape…and that artificial grape flavour, not juicy green or purple grapes. not a bad tea, but not the tea it claims to be. :)

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.
