871 Tasting Notes

Thank you Angel and Teavivre for this sample they sent me a little while ago. The aroma of this tea is relaxing. It’s earthy and a tad floral. It makes me think about a rainy day in the woods. The flavor is really nice and mellow. It’s earthy with notes of vanilla and honeysuckle.

I enjoy this tea a lot. The puerh is mellow and earthy. The oolong isn’t really present but the ginseng and a touch a ginger really make the cup.

This will always be a good one when I can’t decide what I want. Citrus and vanilla notes are pretty equal and blend well with the green base.

I was expecting this tea to be super rocky and mineraly like other wuyi oolongs I’ve had. It has a nice mineral taste to it but is not as strong as I thought it would be. It has sweet vegetal notes and a sweetness to it that reminds me of honey.

This tea was gone so fast. It’s sooo good. It has a nice deep dark chocolate flavor with light milk chocolate notes. It has a nutty note to it. This tea reminds me of a candy bar. I love it!

Had this one for breakfast and it made me crave pancakes… I added a touch of maple syrup to give it an extra kick and it was awesome! I can still grab hints of butter and a cake like feel. I’ll have to get some pancake batter next time I go shopping.

I’m pretty sure Teavivre sent me this as a sample a while ago. Using my gaiwan to do a few steeps. This stays rich in a reddish brown color through every steep. The flavor is pretty strong for only steeping it for 10 seconds at a time. The flavors are earthy, a touch of leather, and a touch of sweetness with hints of mushroom.

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
