512 Tasting Notes

I got this sample from someone, but I don’t remember whom. Sorry. All of my samples got all mixed up by my well meaning spouse. He was just trying to help. Unfortunately, I don’t know who sent what anymore.

On to the tea.

Sweet and floral, light, kinda buttery. Delicious. Very delicious.

Thank you so much Angel for this free sample. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get to the review.

This is a nice, very lightly roasted oolong. The floral notes are still very present but not overwhelming, and just the right amount of roasty. Not quite sweet, but really flavorful. It lasted through several infusions Western Style.

I really enjoyed this.



One of my favorite everyday green oolong


Oops actually its not, lol thought it was Monkey King you were reviewing, was wondering why you were refering to roasted notes, lol

This is nice. It’s still a pretty green oolong, but with a touch of roasty feel to it. Creamy. Tasty.

The leaves are beautiful as they unfurl.

This was a gift from the dear cookies and a complete surprise.

I found it sweet and smooth. I didn’t get peppery, though.

Delicious. Thanks so much, cookies!!!

It’s sad. I loved this tea. Loved loved loved this tea.

And I hoarded it. I shared it with a few people, but I was holding onto what I had because it’s a special tea.

But now it’s just not as magical for me. So sad.

I was not sure I liked the aged taste in this tea, had what I would describe as a bamboo taste but some have used the word leather. I plan to try it again and I am thinking of breaking up a tuo cha and placing it in a yixing tea caddy.


Bamboo…yeah, I can totally see that. I don’t get leather, but I could see bamboo.

I did this one gongfu. Very nice. Roasty and flavorful.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s available anymore, or I’d probably have ordered it.

I’m lucky to have gotten some of this tea.

rich and delicious. The vanilla and saffron blend in perfectly with the golden monkey ad the keemun.

And I know you’re all jealous.

The aroma is amazing. The tea is outstanding.


I love the color, and the way the little threads of saffron just pop right out. Saffron adds an amazing little touch to it.


Nice, where did you even get this? The sneaky smiley face brand name is sneaky.


I got it from a special tea friend who loves me. It’s a custom blend.


Sounds delicious!


You left out “neener neener”

Oooh. I like this one.

Well, that is until I accidentally oversteep it by a bunch. But it was okay after a couple infusions after I dumped the really oversteeped one.

Nice and easy drinking. Yeah, I can get how this could be a daily drinker. It’s inexpensive and tasty. I’m glad I’ve got another one of these coming.


I need to try


If memory serves me this was the one I got for free with my White2Tea order. I have not tried it yet.


I did also get one for free with my W2T CM order, so I’ve got a bunch of this.

This isn’t bad, but it’s not as good as I hoped. I like Special Dark a whole lot better.

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
