drank Green Rhubarb by The TeaCupany
200 tasting notes

Took this tea in my Timolino today. It’s got a sweet grassiness with a nippy rhubarb edge to it. I’ve tasted something like this rhubarb flavouring somewhere else but can’t remember. Overall, an enjoyable tea. I liked it even better than my first cup so maybe this one will grow on me more.

drank White Guava Chai by Tealux
200 tasting notes

I didn’t really enjoy this tea. Took it in my Timolino yesterday morning and threw it out . I just didn’t enjoy the ginger peppercorn spiciness. I have no idea what guava tastes like so couldn’t tell if it was there or not. I don’t like a lot of chai teas so I’m not surprised this one didn’t appeal to me. It seems the spicy flavour just overpowered the delicate white tea.

I just love high mountain green tea in general. This seems like a good quality one. Sweet, buttery, not grassy, smooth. First cup – excellent. 2nd infusion – a bit weak. I think I didn’t let it steep long enough. I added an extra minute onto the steep time. it’s still good .

I just love this tea. Sweet,delicate, nutty. Only have a sample size. I would love to buy more of this but want to try dragonwell from some other companies first.

drank Organic Yunnan Green by Tea At Sea

Had this tea yesterday from a free sample from Tea at Sea. Can’t remember much about it. Nothing was outstanding and nothing bad. It seemed like a perfectly fine cup of green tea. Probably would need to drink it a few time to determine if I really like it.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C

drank Da Hong Pao by Tea At Sea

Thank you Tea at Sea for this sample. In the bag it had a strong charcoal smell. Brewed up really rich and dark. Malty, charcoal. I’m not picking up the floral that others got. Maybe it will come through more in a second infusion. I’m not used to such roasty teas either so the dark roasted flavour could be overwhelming my taste buds. It’s a good tea but I think I prefer the light oolongs.

drank Apricot green by The TeaCupany
200 tasting notes

I don’t know why it is but I am at a loss of words to describe this tea. I have been enjoying some unflavoured green teas lately and when I taste the flavoured it comes across as not natural to me. I still think the tea is good. It’s got a decent green base, a bit astringent. The apricot flavouring is okay and could be adding to the astringent taste. Nothing bad about this tea but nothing seems to really make me love it either. Holding off on any rating until I’ve had a few cups of this. It might grow more on me later.

Flavors: Apricot

drank Puerh Bordeaux by Rishi Tea
200 tasting notes

I bought this tea in January and have had it before but just leaving a review now. This shows tea in teabags but my tea is loose. It smells just like Bordeaux wine in the bag. Brewed up , I only taste Pu-erh. It’s okay. Not a bad pu-erh but I was disappointed, no wine flavour.

Preparation
Boiling

Bio

I’ve loved tea since I’ve been a kid. Back then it was Old King Cole black tea with milk in it. As the years went by I added in all kinds of teas and moved away from the blacks to more green, white,pu-erh rooibos,& herbal. Just recently I’ve started to enjoy a few blacks again along with oolong. Mostly I would just get my teas from the grocery store, Whole Foods, craft shows with small tea vendors, or when travelling. I did order online from a company years ago but only did the once. It was just in 2013 I joined Steepster and have started some online orders. Love love love Tealux but am hoping to try some different places.
