drank Wild Black Yunnan by DAVIDsTEA
1404 tasting notes

I bought this purely because of CrowKettle’s review. Steepster is funny like that.

This tea is… odd? It’s very dark and brown and good. I agree- it smells like dirt and fallen leaves and just.. the forest. It has a bit of a creamy finish in there that’s surprising, but there is something ODD about this. I can’t put my finger on it. IDEK what it is. But I am enjoying this blend.

It just requires further investigation.

I’ve never even heard of that one! I’m so rude to straight teas. I look past them as though they’re not even there, when in reality they’re way classier than their (usually) artificially flavored annoying little cousins. Especially at Davids. Maybe I’ll try it next time I go!

Do you live near a DavidsTea? They have a bunch of straight blacks/greens/whites/oolongs that they were trying to promote for a dollar, and they’ve dropped them down to .50 for a sample. It’s a good way to try some out. They don’t have a huge selection but it’s enough to explore.

If not, let me know and I could probably grab some and throw them in an envelope for you! (Seriously… .50 is pretty good!)

I do have a DT, heading there tomorrow so I will take a look :)

In retrospect it looks like I was on crack while writing my note for this one. I never know how to feel when I influence people into buying tea XD

Cavocorax

Ha! I only grabbed a little and was curious anyway. I think ii realized I like Yunnan tea somehow, so it wasn’t ALL you I guess.

I worry that I influence people to get tea they won’t like but I was (mostly) right about Coconut Oolong.

CrowKettle

Delicious Coconut Oolong.. Have you tried other kinds of Yunnan tea yet?

Cavocorax

I think I have but I can’t remember what. It was in a box of samples I picked up!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
