drank Sour Sap by Tea Sante
586 tasting notes

I’ve drank a lot of strange, not to my taste teas today. I actually had a pretty icky tea day – not the fault of my awesome swappers – I was just choosing things that weren’t really to my tastes.
TheTeaFairy wrote on this one “The strangest tasting tea I’ve ever tried.” Not sure this is the strangest that I’VE ever tried but it is weird, and it is SOUR. I have no idea what sour sap should be, but offensively sour fruit is what I got out of this one. I don’t mind tart, and I wasn’t really afraid of the word sour – but this is beyond tart. It’s past my comfort level in the tart department.
(Should mention that as much as most of the teas I’ve drank today have been misses – it’s definitely been interesting. Love that swaps push me outside my comfort zone. They all can’t be hits and all the misses are worth it when you find that ONE AMAZING tea that you would never have tried. Thank you so much TheTeaFairy for pushing the boundaries. I also love the honesty on the notes written on the packages – it’s awesome)

a swap with our Canadian Fairy is unforgettable in terms of writing notes and packaging !

drank Cardamom by Tea Sante

Thank you TheTeaFairy for sending me this sample.

No thank you. This is like “spray on cardamom” – it’s just too much really strong – almost fake. Sorry this is a big mis considering I REALLY like NMTC’c version of this.

TheTeaFairy

Hahaha! I don’t remember what I wrote on the pouch, but I must have warned you!! Thought I,d share the awkwardness of it! “Spray on cardamom” is a perfect description.

spray on cardamom…lol! sounds like a perfectly kitschy atrocity that will keep the bugs away.

drank Pineapple by Tea Sante
4046 tasting notes

cold brew that i’m enjoying tonight with late dinner. Sadly the cold brew didn’t translate much of the pineapple taste that i liked in the hot brew. I prefer this as a hot brew, though maybe hot brew, chilled would be the way to go. Still tasty, but for sure missing some of the pineapple flavour!

Edit: 3400 tasting notes haha Also, down to 167

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Black Currant by Tea Sante
4046 tasting notes

I had this yesterday and it’s on the menu to try as a cold brew now. I have to say that this black currant flavour is intense. I’d take a sip and then be tasting it in my mouth well after i’d swallowed lol. I dont recall much about the base of the tea but i did really like the flavour. This was another share from the teafairy! thank you madam!

drank Pineapple by Tea Sante
4046 tasting notes

Another one from theteafairy I need to try this cold brewed. This had just enough pineapple that i enjoyed it, but it made me crave butiki’s pineapple oolong for that sheer juicy pineapple feeling. I have a sneaking suspicion this one will be even better chilled over ice (or cold brewed) with just a splash of sweetner. still a fun time though! thanks teafairy!

This was my first experience with a milk oolong so I don’t have anything to compare it to.

The dry tea has a sweet almost bready smell, it steeped into very enjoyable milky smell.

The tea itself wasn’t over powered by the milk scent, I found it to be very complimentary to the lightly floral, toasty oolong.

Something I would drink again surely and if you haven’t already tried a milk oolong Tea Sante’s is a great place to start!

We have a nice milk oolong at Ku Cha. I think it’s from Anxi. It’s probably not as toasty as yours :-)
