4041 Tasting Notes

drank Velvety Vanilla by Tea Desire
4041 tasting notes

thank you Fjellrev for this sample from Tea Desire. This doesn’t rank as a vanilla tea that will need to be restocked, but it was an intresting one. it reminds me a little of the one from tao leaf…and i can’t place why. Admittedly, i was distracted when drinking this with the Nazi episode from Fringe. Hard to pay attention to tea with all that asphyxiation going on haha!

Final count: 148

drank White Angel by Tea Desire
4041 tasting notes

i’m still not sure how i feel about this one. I’ve been sipping it…trying to collect my thoughts…sipping it some more..and now the cup is gone. I think the final verdict is that i quite like this one, though it wouldn’t be something i’d restock myself. It’s a white tea….but it’s also creamy and delicious. it’s coconut…it’s not really pineapple, though as it cooled there was a bit of a fruity sort of taste.

it’s also a pretty tea with yellow rosebuds that are nice to look at, but thankfully, don’t turn this into a floral nightmare for me :) thanks my dear swedish chef! tasty!

drank Butterscotch Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4041 tasting notes

I had pretty high hopes for this one. Sadly, they fell short. It’s not that i didn’t like it..but it wasn’t butterscotch-y enough for me. I wanted butterscotch lifesaver flavour and instead this was a dialed back muted sort of butterscotch. I expect slightly more flavouring from “distinctive.” i suggest anyone picking this up that really wants a flavour punch – go for robust.

last cup of this tea…for sure a bold cup better suited to that morning wake up, but not a bad cup. Likely not a restock for me as i have other favourites, but it was a nice introduction to this Ottawa company :)

drank Royal Golden Safari by Butiki Teas
4041 tasting notes

I haven’t had this tea in a very long while, so i pulled it out today to get a fix on it. Courtney requested some in a swap we had a short time ago and it got me thinking about it again. I think i like this one a little more than i did initially. It’s really quite smooth and tasty, now that i’ve got a great deal more black teas under my belt :) This is smooth and slightly nutty while being a really enjoyable cup of tea. yep…this was a good afternoon tea for me

drank Pumpkin & Spice by Bayswater Tea Co.
4041 tasting notes

i’m going to hold off on rating this because i accidentally over steeped this a little. And by a little…i really mean a little. and it’s awful. lol virtually undrinkable. i’m guessing it’s really all my fault because my swedish chef didn’t find this awful. Soooo jury can remain out on this one for now haha

drank Purple Sunset Oolong by Butiki Teas
4041 tasting notes

oh man…bumping up the rating on this one a little because i forgot how much i like this one. It’s true..it’s an oolong and i love it. There;s plum and cherry notes in here while still being crisps and delicious and no weird oolongy taste that i hate…AND it resteeps well. mmm love this!

strangely i haven’t logged this before now, though i have had it before. Overall this is a pretty average every day sort of tea. It’s nothing to knock my socks off but it’s nothing i’d turn down either. I really should try this gaiwan style though to see if that will coax anything else out of this one. hmmm…

drank Cinnamon Star by Tea Desire
4041 tasting notes

Another one from my swedish chef! After having this one today, i feel like maybe i’ll use the last of this to try it steeped in milk. I think the vanilla in this one really helps to make the cinnamon feel like a creamy delicious tasting cinnamon bun sort of tea rather than a ZOMG CINNAMON HEART tea ") I am quite enjoying this one :)

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.
