6403 Tasting Notes

floral tea incoming… another from missB that i was NOT excited about hahaha. while i am a fan of raspeberry, i’m not such a fan of the floral side of teas. BUT! you never know until you try, since i’ve had a few cups of things i wouldn’t normally drink be wonderful. This tea though, doesn’t fall in to that category for me. It’s a little too floral for me and not nearly raspberry enough for me to overcome the other side of the tea. Sorry MissB, this isn’t for me…but hopefully one of the others will love it! :) it IS, in typical french tea fashion, smooth and really nicely blended.

OMGsrsly

Maybe your Swedish Chef will like this! If she ever shares an address. :)

Another from MissB yes there’s a theme today since i desperately need to be able to pack up her latestet teas to get them out to the west coast crew and the others on this side of the country. I’ve had them for a bit so i really want to get them out to share.

This one, i was pleasantly surprised by. I despise the goji berries that verdant added to their chai – i pick them out every time because of the way it makes the chai taste. This tea though? really quite nice. Again, greens aren’t my favourite tea but this is a really pleasant cup to drink. it’s simple and delicious. thanks for sharing missb!

I’m logging this one here, even though i’m drinking the Jardin du The version from missB The teas are similar so i don’t feel the need to create a new entry for this one time log :) I’m not a fan of this one. I can clearly taste the blergamot AND the rose petals…making it everything i don’t need in a tea lol. That being said, i’m glad to confirm that, as i had my suspicions in reading the descriptions lol

Another from MissB this one is a green/black blend. I am finding this one to have a floral presence….i get a little of the cardamom but it’s largely orange, fruity and floral. There’s a bit of a spice note there too but it’s very subtle. At least it’s not drowning in rose :)

Thanks for the share MissB!

mmmm this has been a great tea this morning. This is a strong flavourful tea on the first few infusions – slight woody taste to it but not overly strong. Mostly smooth and comforting for me. I’d be curious to compare this against the other grades they offer. This one was exactly what i needed this morning though. Some earthy notes to this but subtle and generally just a happy place. Not helpful i know, but i’d reorder this one in future so i’m super thankful to Wymm tea for providing the opportunity to try this one out. If the tea changes remarkably, i’ll edit my note again as i want to have a few more infusions of this one after a little break. :)

Glad you enjoyed it Sil!:-) we recommend steeping the first graede fairly quick, rule of thumb is to achieve the ‘wine’ colour. Let us know how you like the other grade Shou as well too!

my other two samples are sheng so i won’t be able to compare but i may just need to place an order and get a few once my cupboard is down a little

GCTTB i wanted to revisit this one and i’m glad i did as i’m not finding it to be nearly the delicious treat i thought it was back a while ago. Still a decent cup but nothing i NEED to restock, which is better for my wallet because of the stupid dollar sigh

Cavocorax

stupid, stupid dollar. It makes it easier to avoid temptation at least… (but I like being tempted)

yyz

So, so true Cavo. Though I’m looking forward to tasting what this seasons Fujian blacks will be like. Hopefully less grainy than last years.

I had the last cup of this today as the rest is off to other homes so that everyone can try out YS. I’m a fan of their teas and their customer service so I’m happy to spread the word :) Not much else to say on the subject except that i’d be willing to pick this one up again someday.

I had cup of this today, not much tea because i haven’t been awake for much of today. Still fighting this sick that’s going around and it’s making for an incredibly crappy unproductive staycation. grrrrr I have maybe one cup left of this which i’ll enjoy but won’t cry over once it’s gone. thanks for being fabulous Stacy!

another one that just isn’t for me but i’m glad missB enjoyed it. I like the uniqueness of this one, but there’s something in this one that just makes the whole thing taste weird…it’s not the ginger…that’s neat…it was maybe the banana…not that i normally mind banana… not too sure. thanks for the share Missb!

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.
