7540 Tasting Notes


I picked this one up with my order of DF teas because a)i love caramel/toffee type teas and b)i need more caffeine free options in my cupboard. I figured even if i hated it, there are lots of folks here who like to try “fancy french teas” lol The good news? While it does taste a bit like rooibos in the background, it’s still a sweet, creamy, caramel like tea. Not overly so, and i prefer the black version that i also picked up, but this is great for the times when i don’t want caffeine! WIN! (especially at a mere 8 euros for shipping..)


Err… I been thinking about ordering from these guys. Wasn’t sure how it would go when credit card meets foreign currency.


I haven’t had a problem. They also acceptb PayPal if you prefer that as well.


I was going to say use paypal….also “These guys” = cadeaux vendomme not the. Actually DF site :) the one YYZ told us about!


You go, girl. So many freaking teas. And that’s a fabulous tip from yyz. I’m going to have to ignore it haha.

the first of many…many teas from omgsrsly Still not feeling too hot today so i’m trying to drink a few of my caffeine free options tonight before i pass out and sleep. Down side to so many orders today? i’m at 150 again. Up side? SOOOO MANY CHOICES!

I am quite the fan of this one. It’s cranbery orange for sure, and there’s a hint of spice, though not nearly as much as i’d like there to be haha. I wish bayswater would fix up their website and make it an actual ecommerce site as they would be getting an order from me for sure. I’ll have to try this as a cold brew too at some point since it’s quite lovely!

Thanks omg!

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

sounds super interesting!


It is super interesting. I can’t remember if I’ve had it cold. I’m pretty sure it’s sold as an iced fruit tea.

terri…i really hope this is the one you sent to us for the bbb Box the other day. i usually count on tastybrew’s notes to let me know i’ve found the right one but there’s none to be found under this one haha

this is another one that escapes me today but still lands on the side of YUMMY! More to come in future tasting notes but yes… YUM!

I really liked this one! I’ll probably have to order more at some point! Glad you like it!

This is another delicious offering from terri via the BBB Box! I haven’t had the pleasure of trying a lot of Yunnan sourcing teas so i’m always up for new ones. Admittedly i figured i’d better try this before the next round gets here. I always try to finish up the last round’s before the next gets here, but it’s hard with 3 ppl involved that are all eager to share teas!

this one is both chocolately but also minorly..fruity? I will need to have this gaiwan style in the near future because i am really digging this one.

There will be 2 more YS teas in the box, which I hope to mail by Friday :)


awesome heh

sample sipdown! This was sent to me by the lovely gracebtlb as it’s one of her happy puerhs. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet so i was super happy to see this! I’ve been up since stupid o’clock (though just now catch up on my tea drinking notes) so i opted to have this one as a constant tea for the morning. I am a fan of multiple steepings so that i can just focus on work and keep drinking the same thing.

..of course the postmen totally interrupted this train of thought with THREE PACKAGES! long story short..i can get behind this puerh and have thoroughly enjoyed drinking this!


YAY more tea! :D


Haha package day! I got one of my Teavivre boxes today.

I need to work on some of my older tea bags so I pulled this one out of the cupboard this morning as well. I find that the strength of this one isn’t all that great so i usually double up on the tea bags. overall, not a bad brew but nothing i need to restock when in finally finish up!


Twice the bags and it’s gone that much quicker! :D Win!


shhhhhhhhhhh don’t tell them my secret!

sipdown! Working from home today because i don’t want to get my colleagues sick. Finished off the last of this that i had with a few steeps to just enjoy the flavours in this brew on this COLD morning! Sad to see this go, though i do prefer laoshan chai a bit better heh

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.
