drank Cocoa Orange Fusion by Tealux
202 tasting notes

This was one of the new teas in my Tealux order. When I went searching on Steepster to see if this tea was set up I found a Cocoa Orange tea by Fusion Tea. It had the same ingredients and the same description! How strange.

This smelled pretty good in the bag. A strong cocoa with a hint of orange. Brewed with boiling for 5 min. It’s really quite tasty. The cocoa isn’t over strong like a cup of hot chocolate but it’s there with light notes of orange and lemongrass. The nettle leaves give it a little added spice but it’s all balanced quite nicely. I’m very happy with it as I don’t have a huge selection for my evening teas.

Flavors: Chocolate, Lemongrass, Orange Zest

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

What a wonderful tea to have on a quiet Sunday morning. This tea is like the early morning mist in the mountain countryside that creeps in ; giving an awe inspiring view and then slowly slides back out as the bright early morning sun rises.

The beautiful dry leaves smell so sweet and mossy. I had to just enjoy the smell of them before brewing. Brewed at 195F for 1 min. Then I noticed they recommend shorter steeps. On my 2nd infusion I did only 40 sec.

What an amazing green tea. It was so sweet , buttery, & mossy. Just so fresh tasting. Both steeps were very light tasting. I loved it so much I kind of wanted more of the taste to come through; but maybe that’s what makes it so wonderful – the light taste. I definitely would consider buying this one.

Flavors: Butter, Moss, Sweet

I couldn’t wait to try some of my free samples from Green Terrace Teas. I never had a Four Seasons oolong before. Dry it smelled like Jin Xuan, very milk and sweet smelling. Brewed for 1 min at 195F. I didn’t brew in my yixing teapot as it’s so new and still sucking all the flavour out of my oolongs. I can’t give a proper review with that teapot until it starts giving back.

Brewed up it was buttery , sweet, smooth, and vegetal. I detected very light floral jasmine notes. An excellent oolong. Thank-you Green Terrace Teas for the free sample.

This is one of the samples I received as well. I’m excited to try them.

My first time with Four Seasons as well. I was not disappointed!

drank Vanilla Mint Chai by Rishi Tea
202 tasting notes

With all the teas I have in my cupboard this one has been overlooked for a long time. It used to be one of my favourites and I still like it. I normally do not like chai teas but I can’t taste much chai in this pu-erh tea which is probably one of the reasons I like it. Mint is prominent with vanilla notes. Goes well with the dark earthy pu-erh tea.

By the way, I noticed i didn’t have this in my Steepster cupboard but I’ve had it for awhile. I know there’s probably plenty more I’ve never updated. Sometimes it requires setting up the new tea on Steepster and I don’t always have the time.

Flavors: Earth, Peppermint, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

drank Tigre Blanc by Nina's Paris
202 tasting notes

Thanks to Nina’s Paris for sending this free sample. I warmed up my tiny teapot and added the tea into the hot pot to take a wiff before adding the water. I could smell the delicate peach scent and just a bit of roasty oolong. Brewed at 195F for 1.5 min. A tasty peach and a mild roasty flavour from the oolong. A very nice tea but like Terri Harplady I also got a tingling on the tongue. I finished most of mine though only because it does taste good and I’ve had worse reactions (most from David’s Tea Blends).

Flavors: Peach, Roasted

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 30 sec

Not the best tasting tea. I was hoping the lemon myrtle would dominate but it doesn’t. I think it’s the burdock coming through. Hope it helps with my allergies.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This one has a creamy mouth feel. Quick rinse and then 10 sec steep. Very smooth and did not detect any bitterness. 2nd steep, Still creamy but with a bitter edge. All other steeps stayed the same as the 2nd.

Preparation
Boiling

I drank this the other night but didn’t rate it. I don’t think it has enough “Punch” for an old arbor cake like some of the rest I have tried. Maybe with age it will open up more.

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.
