Recent Tasting Notes
I was trying to figure out which herbal to make iced tea with and found the last of my bag of this one. I dumped it in, made a pot and accidentally let it steep way too long. Still, I put it in the fridge overnight and let it do its thing. Today it’s nice and cold and refreshing, but a bit too hibiscus-y for my tastes. I still don’t care much for this tea, but tonight it is definitely hitting the spot.
Also, while picking up teas in store today, I sold a travel press and 50g of tea to my sister in law XD. DT should totally be paying me.
So I was not fond of this tea at all, thinking it far too bitter, amazed that it could be so bitter, even with sugar…and then my wife tells me she forgot to add sugar when she steeped it. So, with sugar, I am looking forward to enjoying a cup of this and dreaming of summer. (Go away, snow!)
I’ve tended to gravitate towards the High Mountain Oolong when I grab a straight oolong from DT, because it’s more expensive to buy loose and so in my head I assumed that it’s the higher quality tea. Which it is, but it does have a different flavour profile from the ti guan yin. And I prefer the more earthy-nutty flavour of the ti guan yin over the more floral high mountain.
Anyway. Was craving a straight oolong after my banana experiment, and this fit the bill. Still a serviceable iron goddess.
First trial of my new gaiwan. I now know why people use gaiwans on some kind of tea board – this is a messy process! But very soothing. The tie kwan yin is holding up wonderfully to the multiple steepings, each time releasing a bit more of the light floweriness that I love about oolongs. Used up the last of my stash for this; maybe it’s time for a restock.
Mmmmm. Light flavour, even if I’m not getting the flowery taste others have mentioned. Very warming and soothing. Will need a few more drinks before I decide if I’m going to stock up on it or not – but a straight oolong that’s this tasty for this price, I can’t pass up.
Tried this in-store today. I still think they boil the water too hot so the green got a little scalded, but otherwise it was tasty! The lime taste is not as bold as the smell – I was expecting to be hit in the mouth with limeade and totally wasn’t. A smooth, earthy drink with a lime tang that isn’t too sweet. Leaves a lingering aftertaste that reminds me of summer and carnivals, but I can’t quite put my finger on exact what it is. May pick up a bag of this, I haven’t quite decided.
Saved the bag, so I think I’ll go for another steep.
I tried this tea ages ago and didn’t really care for it. It was okay, but it tasted…musty. I would finish my tin and then be not so sad it was a seasonal tea.
That all changed today. I’ll admit, I picked this one because I wanted to play more with my teapot and it was handy. I filled it most of the way with hot water, let it steep for a minute, and then I added a little bit of soy milk for the second minute. It was amazing. I loved it. And now I am sad that is was seasonal. Darn it! The milk brought out some creaminess in the pumpkin and it was just delicious.
This is a favorite of mine! And by favorite, I might mean addiction. When I first tried it in the David’s Tea in London, ON, I had still been drinking regular bagged tea for my daily fall-back and saving the DT for special occasions, but this was the one to push me to go all loose-leaf! It’s delicious, and has a fantastic natural flavor that doesn’t need anything added. I drink a cup of it first thing every morning before yoga.
Dry, the tea had the same “off” smell that the Buttered Rum I tried had. Still, I grabbed 10 grams and brought it home to try.
Stepped, that smell is gone, or at least tempered by the citrus. It’s all just lovely, light citrus. There is a green foamy… scum around the edges of my mug and infuser, but I’m not worried.
The taste is nice. Green tea and citrus, and a smooth ending. I really like it. Not exactly like a Creamsicle, like some are claiming, but it’s a nice combination of fresh and comforting.
