1743 Tasting Notes

240! Thanks VariaTEA for this one. To be honest, it wasn’t really for me. Maybe I didn’t steep it right, but I’m not discouraged. I’m sure I’ll like some of the others from this company. I might just have been in a ‘meh’ mood.

VariaTEA

You’re welcome. And don’t worry about not liking this one because I was really unimpressed as well. There was just something off about the whole thing.

Amariel

Sounds yummy though. Wish it was better from what you both say.

I drank this one again, and I do enjoy it, but damned if I know how to describe it. :P It doesn’t help that this tea is no longer for sale so I can’t just look it up.

I like it though. I like all the Hugo teas I’ve had. Maybe next time I order from them, I’ll try their greens.

I’ve heard good things about this one.
It IS good.
I’m so glad I asked Sil to snag some for me when she was in BC.

Another one from VariaTEA! Thanks! I love Nina’s Paris tea. :D (243)

So I don’t know enough about mangoes, but I’m totally getting apricot from this. Sweet apricot. I am really enjoying this. It’s also creamy too. Yum.

VariaTEA

Yay! I am glad you like this. It is one of their teas they sell in Japan so I was super excited to get sachets to share.

Backlog from last night. Thanks Sil!
I threw this in the fridge last night to cold steep it and this is good, although I think I’m less fond of rooibos. But the vanilla and fruit are nice. I’m happy to have tried this.

Thanks VariaTEA! (244)
I’ve never heard of this company but I was interested in NEW TEAS! Thanks for sending so many of them.

Huh. I’m not sure if its the base, or if it’s just the flavours, but there is something odd with this one. I’m not sure I’m big on it but… and don’t hate me, I’m not the biggest bestest fan of maple teas. So maybe that’s it. :P

VariaTEA

Haha don’t worry about it. I shared all the Victoria teas since it was a new company to me and thought it would be interesting to see others thoughts. I haven’t even tried this yet so I am sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it.

OMGsrsly

GASP! How can you call yourself Canadian if you don’t like maple (teas)?! ;)

VariaTEA

Hahaha I made the mistake of telling the Americans in my residence that my family uses Aunt Jemima syrup instead of real maple syrup and they were all really disturbed at how uncanadian that was.

OMGsrsly

I grew up with golden syrup or home made fruit sauce on my pancakes. I love pancake syrup, but maple is only for tea. And whipped cream.

Cavocorax

I don’t think I’ve had maple syrup that often? Aside from maple fudge? We grew up with Aunt Jemima.

Sil

omg – gross… gross gross…

and cavo – yeah seems like maple syrup is an ontario thing moreso because it’s cheaper out here… i’ve fully embraced it and used to HATE it… go go aunt jemima :)

OMGsrsly

At least it’s not as bad as my gramma’s “butter” being a tin of oil with a brush in it. :)

I had this yesterday without milk and it was a nice slightly sweet black, but when I added milk to it today it turned into creamy strawberry/fruit tea! Oh, wow. That was surprising!

Thanks Dexter3657. I might have to try this one again some time and play with it!

It seems like a LOT of Lupicia’s blacks are INSANE with milk. I’m going to make it my mission to learn all about it this fall.

Milk tea is HUGE in Japan, so many of their teas (including a strawberry and vanilla green tea with matcha) are good with milk. I really like them.

This was my requested sample from my last Butiki order. Yay: Three Friends!
I find that I do still enjoy this tea but it’s also so subtle and generally I want more chocolate in my face, or I want something less chocolatey. This is an odd middle flavour level and I’m not sure that I’d crave this one often enough to purchase it.

I don’t think. It’s really tasty though. I’m happy I requested it as a sample. I imagine I’ll buy an oz of it someday.

whatshesaid

You went from “I’m not sure I’d crave this one often enough to purchase it” to “I imagine I’ll buy an ounce of it someday”

Hehe

Cavocorax

Hahah. I’m not very good at logic. ;P

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)
