1308 tasting notes

Not bad not bad!! Like Jessie mentioned, a decent alternative for the STE version. Only less intense. and kinda Jasmin-like after the third steep… which I wasn’t thrilled about.
I’m not sure if I’d restock though, I think I’ve overdone it with the coco oolongs lately. We need a break… I’m sure CO and I will get back together again soon :P

My coconut oolong phase is just beginning… :D

OooOooh? you must try the STE version! I’d send you some if I had more than dregs left in my tin, which I refuse to wash out because it smells soooooo good :P

aisling of tea

Nom coconuts…also, just FYI, you shouldn’t ever wash out tins, there are too many hidden nooks and crannies for water to get in to and then mildew your next tinful. I use a dry cloth to wipe it out and if the smell remains, leave it open in the sunlight for a few days.

Indigobloom

ah good idea. I usually let them sit out after washing, hoping to get all the moisture out. But there is no way I could go without washing entirely, who knows what they line the tins with! (I have an unreasonable fear of BPA and the like!)

Kittenna

STE? What is STE?? I am fairly certain I should be able to figure it out, but I am so tired…

Also, aislingoftea, good to know about the tins. I’ve been swapping teas in and out of tins as I run low on one and want to pick up another with a discount, and wasn’t sure what to do with them. A couple I did just shake out, but I rinsed one – and IT DRIPPED! So mustn’t be airtight, which is worrisome. They’re all DavidsTea tins, so I thought they’d be good… I left it to dry overnight; hopefully it dried enough that I won’t have moldy tea. I’ll probably use the tea up before it would have a chance to mold anyhow…

Ahh sorry that was my way of being lazy. The Coconut Oolong from Spice and Tea Exchange is the best. coco oolopong tea. ever :)

Kittenna

Oolopong?? :P I will put it on my shopping list, thanks!

Indigobloom

oh dear, that was a typo. sorry!! too early in the AM for me to be licences with a keyboard :P

Indigobloom

Kittenna

It’s ok! I got a laugh out of it :D And added it to my shopping list.

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
