Zip-e-dee-doo-da zip-e-tea-a my oh my what a freakin cold day! Plenty of Pu-Erh warming my way….. Oh dear God I forgot how much I love this tea. This is my “treat” tea. Dark like coffee. Smooth as silk. Definitely helps me when I have to deal with the ex-wife. My tin is going to be done soon and that will be sad, but for now I’m enjoying every sip.
Finished this up from the black tea sampler. I find this english breakfast brighter than others I have had. The liquor is a little more orange in hue. The flavor kind of reminds me or tomato sauce. Good though.
Had this again this morning. I tried to make fruit roll up out of Canteloupe for my daughter but it came out like chips. So I put a few in and it added some nice sweetness.
Very light. reminds me of fresh cut grass in spring which is a nice thought with all the snow on the ground.
Once again I put a quarter teaspoon of curry powder into a cup of lapsang. Boiled and made cous cous. Threw in some shrimp sautéd in olive oil and lemon pepper…smoky and delicious!
Aquired some this swapping with pizzagirl. Very light tea. A little nutty. Very similar to the Hou Shan Yellow buds. Not a huge white tea man myself but very high quality!
I added a quarter teaspoon of curry powder on recommendation of pizzagirl….as far as savory tea goes…wow what a combo…this would be great in chicken or rice
I got this on sale for 6 an ounce….so already I was excited to try it. The leaves have a somewhat sweet vegetal aroma. The liquor is pale like greener oolongs that I am fond of. The flavor is similar to Tin Kuan Yins that I have tried before. It’s not one of my regular steeps but still quite good!
This vendor’s roasted oolongs are excellent. Some of their flavored black tea blends are just OK. This primarily tastes like banana. Nothing special.
Back logging here. I got a can of this during the summer and it was the first can of tea that I cashed from Dr. Tea. This is a good everyday tea. The flavor is a little astringent but I still loved it. I couldn’t get a lot of Pu-Erh flavor out of this but I could taste the ancient tea tree. I would love to try them individually. I like it quite a bit and will likely order more.
used this to marinate beef for chili…….he he yum!!
I just finished my first can of this. I must say this is the best high quality matcha that I have had so far. I started off my matcha journey when I worked at Starbucks. I do love their matcha eventhough it’s highly sweetened. I do not have a matcha whisk but this mixes well with a mini steel whisk(egg beater). I will say the aroma at first was a little plastic like from the bag it came in, but the color is a nice pale green and tea is incredibly smooth. I got it on sale but it’s one of the more affordable matchas I have seen. I drank the last of my can this morning because I’ve been filling in on the morning show at the radio station and feeling great :)
I ordered this in the Oolong sampler from Dr. Tea. It has a very pleasant aroma. I am a coffee drinker as well so this intrigued me. When I tried it I couldn’t taste the oolong as much as I could taste the roasted Hojicha and vanilla shavings. It is good but I’m not sure if I would purchase it as a daily tea.
I love this tea! I purchased a bunch of it when it was on sale. The aroma is fantastic and the Tea is even better. It definitely reminds me of sipping a campfire in a good way. I’ve got a couple of friends….including pizzagirl ;) hooked on this and took it with me to family Christmas. I bonded with my father-in-law and his father-in-law over this tea. When my brother-in-law came to tell him something he paused and said “hang on I’m at Cook’s forest right now”. So I also have him hooked too. I have used it in many recipes in cooking including marrinating turkey in it for chili. I can’t wait to compare it to other lapsangs.

3rd Steep of the Day.
Made a great Pot of Dr’s Gingerbread Rooibos.
This was a Pot at a TEA PARTY we had.
It was Good enough to Get 2 Pots from the 1st Ball full
Keep on steepin
Nothing like the smell and taste of a campfire on a cold day where the snow is falling thick and fast. Aaahhhhh. :-)
I ordered this tea awhile back and it is one of my favorites. It is on of the smoothest Pu-Erhs I have tried. I love how robust and full bodied this tea is. The liquor is very dark and almost looks like coffee. The earthy flavor is unique and tasty! I have found that tea is very good for an upset stomach too or over indulging in alcoholic beverages. I would recomend this tea to anyone. Definitely worth the price.
Wednesday Nov. 10 2010 My 2nd Steep for the Day
After Lunch I Wanted a Little Sweet Treat So Heres where I Went
Dr. Teas GingerBread a Standard 3.30 Steep.
Just the Sweet pick-up needed after Lunch.
Marshmellow turtle latTEA!
1 cup water
1 cup smart balance milk
2TB marshmellow mocha creamer
Yummm! Smooth, very sweet, and creamy. Not enough chocolate though- I’d make this w/ chocolate milk:) Definitely helps keep me warm even though the winds have kinda died down. Gusts are only 35mph instead of 60 lol.
I got on this Chocolate tea kick this week after French Vanilla asked me about Chocolat Au Charlott from D. Freres. Anyway,,,after trying several , this is still one of my favorites. Nice cocoa powder flavor comes thru w/slight , very slight vegetative ooolong in the background. The inside of the tin and the oolong itself is visibly coated w/cocoa powder.
The vendor description mentioned cocoa powder….I just detected banana. But still wonderfully sweet and light.
This has been my go-to tea of late. I like the roasty ness in the foreground and the whisper of vegetal green in the background. And this tastes like coffee w/o the jittery effects.
Smells nice, had it with some sesame mochi.
Thank you to Lori for this sample! This is an individually wrapped teabag. When I opened it there was a refreshing and strong peppermint aroma. From this I really expected this tea to taste exactly like my plain peppermint herbal tea, but not so. As you drink this, the smell of peppermint is so relaxing but the green tea is definitely there when you drink. Nice balance of the flavors. This is a slightly astringent green, not a buttery one.
