4704 Tasting Notes

final tea for tonight…. i have some things i need to go mess with so going to get to that before it’s later than i expect it to be. I am sad to see this one go, i’ll need to place an order with WP someday soonish… sadly, with my exploded cupboard…i’m not sure when that will be :( really not likely to get to 100 now by July 1.

Final Count: 239

Cavocorax

Yeah… poor ‘sploded cupboards. I’d like to get more WP teas too. I’m happy 221Tea sent me so many to try!

evening tea with dinner! I shared this one with variatea and cavocorax and i’m glad i did. 50g would have been too much for me, while a 3 way split is perfect. I am enjoying the flavours in this one – it’s rightly hawaii like without that weird taste a lot of “troical” blacks seem to have. That being said, the few cups i have will be enough to satisfy my curiosity :)

(also anna, if you’re out there, i totally brewed melon oolong the other day according to the instructions…it was hard…)

i had this one earlier (today! almost caught up!) and it was downright yummy as far as smokey teas go. this is a different sort of smokey tea than the ones i’m used too, with a bit of something else coming out to play with this one. it’s also not a subtle tea (courtney stay away!). it’s smokey, and slightly sweet…with a bit of a punch to it. looking forward to trying it out with maple syrup :)

soooo i think i have more of this coming my way via 221….this sample though was from cavocorax and let me tell you..NOT.A.FAN. those who know me, know that i like a little smoke in my tea. This for sure has this, but outside of that, this was like a soapy weird gross smokey tea. There was no graham taste..or marshmallow or chocolate…just smoke that was REALLY nice…followed by soap. blech. if 221 does send me more, i’m hoping that it will be a bit tastier, or that i can coax a little more out of it…

Lol, I hate smoke, and somehow, I really like it :-) lol, I was at a bonfire the night I drank it, maybe I was just swallowing real smoke along with it!

i love it in teas and when camping… as long as it’s coming from a fire and not cigarettes lol

i tried the last of this one as a cold brew this week as well….it’s a bit less woodsy for me, but still nothing to write home about. However, really happy to try another pear tea offering, so thank you a bunch variatea

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
VariaTEA

That’s so weird because I tasted rooibos more in the cold brew.

thanks for sending this one my way variatea I pulled this one out the other night when i read roswell’s tasting note. sadly, for me this tasted too much like rooibos – the woodsy type i don’t like. When i DID get a mouthful of that delicious pear taste it was heaven! but every other sip was pear+ woodsy rooibos. so, not a fan over all :( but soo close to being a fantastic pear tea.

Bio

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.
