401 tasting notes

I did not get the flavor I was expecting from this tea. Common, if it came back from the graveyard, shouldn’t it be exceptional? I get lots of bitterness, even after steeping at a lower temperature. I get some tropical taste, but no distinct ingredients. Where is the raspberry so well described? It doesn’t come through for me… maybe it’s just the batch I got? It’s not a «bad» tea, I will drink the bag I have, but it has no wow factor for me and it won’t make the repurchasing list…

The Back from the Dead results were disappointing – I think a lot of recent DT converts were the main voters as it seemed like fairly recent teas were the one to return. Swampwater is worth a shot if you want something unusual though. : )

Thanks for the suggestion, Swampwater is on my list! Howerver, I’m gonna have to wait a little while before ordering, I just went on a shopping spree at David’s…again! Let’s see how long I can hold it :)

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)

I love taking tea pics, here’s my Instagram:
