856 Tasting Notes

Thank you so much to Angel and Teavivre for sending me a generous sample of this tea. The dry leaf is a beautiful grass green. The aroma of the dry leaf is buttery and leafy. The flavor is rather different than other tie guan yin oolongs I’ve had. Usually I’m used to strong floral flavors but this has much deeper flavors. It’s woodsy, buttery, floral, sweet, and a touch of creaminess. I’m going to enjoy a few more steeps of this one :3

Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sweet, Vegetal, Wood

I still really love this tea :3 I had it with a side of scrambled eggs. The flavors are all spot on including that pancakey feel. Hot butter, maple syrup, and a cakey flavor. Mmmmmm :P

Felt like this would be a good one since I haven’t had it in forever! I like the combination of teas in this blend. I like the orange/ginger flavor. And I like ever so light spicey note it has.

drank Red Velvet Cake Mate by 52teas

Another one gone! I completely forgot I had this tea. Good thing I’m going through my stash :3 I enjoy roasted mate far more than I enjoy regular mate. It’s a bit smoother. The flavor is still with this one. It has a nice cakey feel to it and is even complete with cream cheese frosting :3 This one will be missed.

drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas

Aaand it’s gone! I really liked this chai. Usually all chai’s taste the same to me but I love the chocolate in this one :3 This one is strong in the cinnamon and clove but the milk chocolate flavor mellows the spice and kind of rounds it.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Sugar

Another one gone! Yay! I feel so successful in clearing out my stash tonight. I will miss this one and probably restock soon! The flavors I’m catching are: strawberry, cream, a nutty flavor, and an earthy puerh. They blend so nicely together :3 I forgot how much I love this one.

Flavors: Cream, Earth, Nutty, Strawberry

drank Butter Rum by 52teas

This one is gone, too. I liked it while I had it but I’m kind of happy it’s gone… More room for a new tea :D The butter rum is a nice flavor to accompany a black tea. It’s a smooth cup with good flavor! Farewell Butter Rum!

Another one gone! This one is ok. I’m getting cheesecake but a super faint cherry flavor. The genmaicha comes through a lot and gives it a crust feel. I liked it but it won’t be missed.

Going through all of my tea tonight and deciding which ones are going up for swap! I really like this tea. The flavor is nice, nutty, and makes a good black tea latte :)

Randomly picked this one tonight. I completely forgot I had this one. It’s enjoyable while I’m cooking dinner. It’s enjoyable. The oolong stands out in this one. Kind of a mineral flavor but still sweet. The strawberry and champagne lend kind of a tart note but blends well with the oolong :)

Bio

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 :]
