288 Tasting Notes


Sipdown. From the regional group buy. Did this at ‘not’ boiling . Creamy, sweet, small amount of green at the end. Very much a mouthfeel tea for me. Liked this so much better than the Bitaco black.

Flavors: Creamy, Green, Sweet

Sipdown. Sample from Midwest teafest. Very nice black tea. Sweet and fruity. I’ll have to keep an eye out for other Vietnam blacks when I make an order eventually.

Using the last of this up at my sister’s. I had to mi it with another black because there wasn’t enough left for even one small cup.

Thanks to Daylon R Thomas for this tea!
Westren tonight as I’m feeling lazy. 2tsp, 180F
I like that this tea is nicely balanced. The cinnamon doesn’t build like mint and get overwhelming. Fruity, cinnamony, sort of warmth. Not spicy, just warming. Fruity cinnamon reminds me of pie somehow. Okay, now I want pie.
White base came through in mouthfeel more than anything.

I got three solid and consistent steeps out of the tea.
Probably not something I’d order myself, but I was glad to try it.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Thick

I had this today at work and it reminded me of the worst artificially tasting hazelnut creamer for coffee. I couldn’t finish it and decided to get rid of the rest. The flavor doesn’t work. Unfortunately, I bought a lot of this tea. I can’t see myself finishing anymore though. Dropping my rating since it’s become undrinkable.

Flavors: Artificial, Hazelnut

I’m out. I will probably replace this eventually once my cupboard is more under control. Sipdown.

I’m at the end of my bag. However much I liked this in the past I refuse to buy pure tea from Teavana. I’ve found a servicable replacement and will be purchasing that instead.

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. Mostly loose leaf now, though bags are easier for work.

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I currently have available.

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
