drank Black tea-Keemun Finest by Zen Tea
7966 tasting notes

Received this one from Evol Ving Ness at our meetup and had it early this morning. the downside is that i got side tracked and don’t remember detailed notes on how it tasted, but i really enjoyed the cup. There’s a little left in my cup that’s been sitting there, cold. and sipping it now it reminds me of fruity, malty delicious. I may need to look at ordering some of this for myself later on in the year.

thanks evol!

Nicole/Tea-Historic

How prominent is the smoke?

Mike

I think this one is my favorite keemun so far. :)

Sil

Nicole, personally i didn’t notice any lol sooooo yeah.

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Keemuns always sound appealing but then the smokiness always blows it for me. :(

Mike

Yeah, there’s a little bit, but it’s minimal. This one is stronger than most keemuns as well.

Sil

@nicole if I get any this year you can steal some hehe

drank Vanilla Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
7966 tasting notes

So i tried this one today to see f i could replicate what we had at the tea festival yesterday. a cup of OJ + 1tsp of vanilla matcha and this is close to what we had on the weekend. There’s a little tweaking to do but it was a really tasty drink this morning :)

Fjellrev

Interesting!

Evol Ving Ness

I went to their booth today and nope, they weren’t doing oj matches today. Sorry I missed it. And no, I didn’t volunteer to host tea parties. :)

Sil

well davids tea vanilla matcha + oj seems to work heh

Evol Ving Ness

Did you use fresh or bottled oj?

Evol Ving Ness

ok, ok, ok, I’ll put it on my list.

Sil

tropicana heh

Sil

i just picked up 20g from Davids to play with.. was less than 2$ so worth it to experiment with.

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks. On it.

drank Magic Carpet by Tea-Ara

Another tea from the festival today. this one wasn’t bad for a fruit tea. Sadly, not sure what the ingredients are but it wasn’t too sour and had a nice fruity flavour both hot and once it had cooled.

drank Random Steepings by Various Artists

So the highlight of the tea festival for me? Vanilla Matcha in….ORANGE JUICE. Yeah, i know. I would never have thought to do that but man it was like drinking and orange creamsicle and made my day. Sadly, i’m not spending 35$ on 100g of flavoured matcha. So i’m going to see what david’s version tastes like tomorrow for breakfast lol

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Oh, wow. So it was green tea matcha with vanilla made with orange juice? How noticeable was the green tea flavor?

Sil

it was more orange creamsicle than anything lol but it was such a neat idea.

Nicole/Tea-Historic

That interests me since I am not the biggest fan of the flavor of matcha. :)

OMGsrsly

I think I need to pick up some OJ. I already have matcha. And vanilla powder.

Sil

haha i’ll report back on my experiment tomorrow :)

Evol Ving Ness

Sil, which booth was offering this? Need to know when I limp around tomorrow.

Sil

steeped tea – they were in the corner by the side of the stage on the left side. after majesteas

Nicole/Tea-Historic

Steeped Tea? The party consultants? Hm. We’ll have one of those at our festival. Maybe I need to make sure she’s bringing vanilla matcha. :)

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you, Sil. I missed them when I was flitting about today.

Sil

Nicole – yeah, i don’t much love their teas but this was a fantastic idea.

Indigobloom

I hope they have it again tomorrow!

drank Buchu Superfruit by DAVIDsTEA

Another one i had while at the festival. I remember a vague berry flavour – nothing too exciting but nothing terrible either. Basically it was nice enough to taste but i don’t feel inclined to ever get more haha

drank Guavalicious by T by Daniel

Tried this one at the festival again just in case…yeah i’m still not a huge fan. Hoping the other couple teas i picked up will be more enjoyable. there’s just something about this one that says NOPE….slightly artificial and not all that tasty.

drank Combray by August Uncommon Tea
7966 tasting notes

Had a cup of this later in the afternoon so say goodbye to it. The last of this is getting shared tomorrow at the tea festival so i figured why not. In theory this brings my cupboard down to 111, while my goal for this month was 120. Guess that leaves room for the samples i’m picking up tomorrow and possible tea purchases heh. This is a really nice green. I have to say, AU does a bang up job with their teas – making me like things i wouldn’t normally necessarily love.

Final Count: 111

drank Sam Bodhi F.O.P. by Le Palais des Thes

another tea from earlier today. i quite like this ceylon – super glad i read reviews and decided to risk it when i was in Paris. just a nice cup, though arguably better when i drink it in a mug versus travel mug.

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.
