8055 Tasting Notes

mmmm pulled this one out today since i’d like a few more straight teas to be opened in my cupboard. Lots of flavoured but not as many straight teas. Also, i had forgotten i had this keemun and might as well compare it someday soon against the one i just picked up from genuine tea (just not today). This is a fabulous tea. Not sure it warrants the price, but man, so delicious this morning. Malty, cocoa, caramel, sweet but in a creamy sort of way…. noms. just yums.

I pulled this one out to start my day. Running around today so not much time for drinking tea, but i WILL get my sipdown tomorrow to meet my Feb goals. I really like this one – it’s an oolong but it’s closer to a black than an oolong imo. It’s lacking that distinctive OOLONG taste that i tend not to enjoy. instead it’s sweet with fruity notes, but not as intense as some TTC teas. just a really enjoyable tea – even if it is hard to let it brew for as long as the instructions call for (4-6mins)

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas

noms. delicious afternoon cup of chocolate mint decadence. I’m going to be seriously annoyed when this one is gone. It’s my favourite chocolate peppermint tea and it’s a herbal!!

I finished this one so long ago. It is missed!

this one is growing on me the more i have it. Either that or i’ve figured out how to brew it :) Either way this is a nice tasty cup of gingerbread. Just working on drinking it up since it’s almost spring!

Ever the optimist!

drank Vanilla Coco Loco by T by Daniel

this might end up being the fastest i’ve ever drunk through a white blend. Something about this one is just downright spot on – everything i could want in a creamy, vanilla, coconut tea.

drank Divine Temptation by Bayswater Tea Co.

this + creme brulee = happy times. I’ve been holding off really digging in to these two that omgsrsly brought for me because bayswater is likely never going to get their crap together for online orders. Disappointing really since i’d likely order frequently from them.

I’ll ask them what’s up on Sunday.

Sil

Please do. I’ve asked via email before and when I was out there…they keep saying “it’s coming” but it’s been 3 yrs? lol

drank Caramel Salted Butter Oolong by Fauchon
8055 tasting notes

Christina’s review on the other version of this from DF made me want to to revisit this one. Thankfully it’s still as wonderful as i remember. I for sure prefer this one to the DF version because it’s creamier and much more caramel…and the base is a little more hidden, which for me is good :)

VariaTEA

I’m always surprised when I read of your love for this tea given its oolong but you make it sound so lovely :)

Sil

DF version, you can taste the oolong. this version, it really doesn’t taste like an oolong except to add buttery notes to it.

VariaTEA

I’ll keep that in mind

Another oldie but a goodie. Gotta love damn fine teas. One of these days i should figure out which one is my favourite, see if my tastes have changed. :)

Time to pull out my older teas more often since i’ve sort of been hoarding them. Not to mention i have the free shipping coupon from damn fine tea that i can use before June? i think it was, so i might as well drink up! I forgot how much i rather enjoy this one. It’s got a softer, almost sweet profile when brewed at lower temps. really nice to revisit this one.

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.
