I really like this tea! I was not sure what to expect…it sort of reminds me of a rice popcorn cake but it has a lovely green tea flavour to it too. I will be drinking more of this.

I like eating the rice bits. Tastes like a japanese soup :)

I tried some and they are yummy, I have always liked popped or toasted rice foods. This tea did sort of have a soup flavour to it, I enjoyed it. It would be good with a meal.

Thats so true, perfect for something non-spicy with japanese rice

Surprisingly good!! Im not a fan of cherries but this tea is amazing! Smells perfect, mild not too overpowring cherry flavor. I can taste a bit of coconut which is fine. I think this is one of the best blends I have ever had! This will be one of my fav teas.

Flavors: Cherry, Coconut

I have arrived home after Christmas holidays at my parents place. The first thing I did when I got in the door was put on the kettle to make some tea in my new teapot I received for Christmas. I have had this tea (Choconut Oolong) on my shelf for a long time – I actually have a tin of it, which is quite a lot. It is from Winter 2013…and we are heading into 2016…so yes, quite awhile. Since I got the teapot for Christmas though my memory was jogged of this tea, and a couple others that I haven’t tasted in a long while. I have been fantasizing about drinking it again and what the flavour was like. So here I am…sipping away. It is quite what I remembered, it smells and tastes very much like hazelnuts to me though I can also taste a roasted almond flavour. At the end of a sip I do get a very sweet hit, which I am not terribly fond of as it tastes a bit artificial. It’s still a relaxing and enjoyable tea.

I’m still pretty new at writing tea tastings so pardon if my descriptions are not very intuitive yet, I am still learning and developing my taste palette.

Flavors: Almond, Hazelnut, Sweet

Preparation

You are doing just fine! Just write what you taste or feel when you drink the tea, nothing more required :) I actually really liked your description of this tea, even though you wouldn’t recommend to drink it!

Jennifer (shecoloura)

@Mookit thank you! I didn’t mind the tea until the licoricy sweetness kicked in at the end as an aftertaste. It has an artifical taste about it that I did not enjoy at all. Without it, this tea would be simply pleasant!

I am doing a giveaway of samples of this tea right now. If you are interested I could send you a sample. Just PM me your address. I’m following you.

Sipdown. Added the rest of sample packer to my steeper. I got a lot of artifical taste from this previously, so I added milk to hopefully mask it. It’s still not a great tea.
I stopped drinking rooibos a few years ago and I am now finding that I don’t care for it. Giving me weird woody aftertaste.

Flavors: Artificial, Wood

This is the 2014 version please be advised! It was a lovely little pumpkin spike cake tea. It had a full creamy mouth feel and such an authentic flavour. It was a surprising treat! I really enjoyed it. I believe it came from Marzipan in one of my first transactions with her. She really is the most terrific person, in case you weren’t aware. :0)

Flavors: Cake, Pumpkin, Spices

This is my staple/ everyday tea. I don’t use sugar in Earl Grey, so I have to steep this one a bit on the light side because it can go bitter if steeped for too long. The bergamot flavour varies quite a bit from one batch to another, so each new bag that I buy is a bit of a surprise. My daughter finds it too bitter, but I love it.

Flavors: Bergamot

Advent calendar [8/24]

I moved back into my parents’ house in 2011 and promptly began my addiction to tea. This tea was one of my first purchases during that time period. When I found that today’s tea was Cherry Blossom, I had the most fantastic flashbacks to drinking this tea while at my first job in my field. This tea was one of my favourites from that time period. I can still picture drinking this out of my Bodum travel mug with the pumping lever.

I was so excited to drink this one that I probably steeped it for 30 seconds too long. I dumped out the pot and re-steeped it. While the original infusion would have been better, the second infusion was incredible.

Taste-wise, it’s got lovely hints of grass and sweet cherries with a smooth aftertaste. I really liked holding this one in my mouth in small sips. This tea was best as it breathed and cooled down to 40-50 degrees.

I think this is a tea I’ll have to pick up. I definitely need more of this one.

Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Floral, Hay, Smooth

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Day #4 of tea!

Finally, a black tea, haha. This one is a classic DT offering I think, and a solid flavoured chai. It isn’t my favourite, and I don’t go gaga over it when it shows up in the fall collection, but I do enjoy a mug of it every now and again . Clearly, since I saved some of my stash to add to the advent calendar.

Alyssa

That’s a fun idea: Adding some of your stash to make your own advent calendar. :)

This is my second year doing it, and I love it! I get to try a bunch of new things and revist some flavours I haven’t had in ages. :)

A good, vibrant autumn favorite, with a nice mix of spice and sweet (although I admit, I would like more spice to bring out the chai). The little pumpkin candies are cute, but I’m not sure how much flavor they add. The aroma is incredible, and I’ve taken to adding a pinch more cinnamon to my cups.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Molasses, Pumpkin

I think David’s Tea is one of the best Canadian shops. Especially around the holidays — all their gift collections, like the tea advent calendars and ornaments, tea infused hand cream, and wide variety of teas (many of which are so much fun and festive!) make the store quite special. I’m a frequent steepster there – it’s a real thing.

Milk Oolong — my favourite non-green. I can say that, what with my rating being 100%! No, really, this deserves it. Milk Oolong is really rare to find, too.

This is the creamiest, most mouth watering scent I have enjoyed with a dry leaf! And better yet, the flavour matches up perfectly when it is brewed properly – fantastic mouthfeel. I sometimes add a splash of milk to a strong pot or added creaminess (which it doesn’t really need, really, but enhances it a bit). It’s a bit pricey, but it’s something I do not mind paying for as a treat. And hey, the holidays are coming up — and you can bet Milk Oolong is on my list.
