811 Tasting Notes

77

So I’m thinking about taking my old electric kettle to work since I now have a Breville. Microwave water and tea just don’t go together… And the microwave scares me… I know I’ll get a lot of crap for it.
This was a nice cup to start my day with. It’s not as strong as I was expecting but I also could have left the bag in a little longer. The strongest flavor I’m getting is the vanilla. The spices are more in the background.

First cup of the year! This tea was pretty much spot on with the flavors. It’s sweet but it still has that taste of apple. Mmmmmmmmm :)

Thanks Momo! Adagio and I have a love/hate relationship. This tea is ok. I don’t find many of adagio’s flavored teas to be very flavorful.. this blend is ok. I’m not getting a whole lot of berry, mostly earl grey. Thanks again!

Thank you whoever sent this to me! I’ve lost track of who sent me what but I really appreciate it! I really like this Oolong. It’s not the first I’ve had this tea but I still enjoy it :) it has a nice peachy flavor and some light notes of maple syrup. Thanks again!

Thank you Momo! This tea has a sort of astringency to it. It has a peppery, sweet flavor to it. It has a nice flavor to it but I think I’d have to have a few cups to get used to the astringency.
Thanks again!

drank Blueberry Zabaglione by 52teas

Thank you Momo! I’m going to attempt a sip down today. I have way too many samples and they’re building up.
This tea is delicious! I love the blueberries in it. It’s very sweet with berry taste. The blueberry flavor is very nice and not candy-like like I was expecting. Not as creamy as the strawberry but it is still delicious.

drank Berry Basil Blast by Teavana

This is surprisingly light in flavor. It’s sweet with berry and citrus flavors. There is a bit of an herbalish flavor, but it gets lost in the sweetness. It’s ok. Not really my favorite.

This tea is very crisp and has a sweetness to it. The leaves and liquor are beautiful. The flavor is very fresh and pure.

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 :]
