A huge thank you to Pekko Teas!!
The color of the liquor is a beautiful rust red. The aroma is slightly earthy with a little bit of a toasty note to it. I most certainly can catch the jam and toast notes. It’s slightly dry with a warm wheat note and a sweet ending.

Finally finishing this one up. This has a wonderful smooth flavor to it. It’s vegetal and toasty with hints of buttery flavors. Very nice :)

I received this one from a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I was so excited when I got this one because it was soaked in honey. I have never, ever seen a tea that was soaked in honey. Well I went to Teavivre’s site and read up on it. I decided to do multiple steeps with this oolong. So here it goes!
1st Steep:
212° for 1 min.
The color of the liquor reminds me of watered down honey. The smell is light, sweet, and with a hint of fresh veggies. The flavor is kind of floral and sweet. I can get a slight hint of honey in the background.
2nd Steep:
212° for 2 min.
The color has gotten much, much brighter. Almost to a yellowish-green. The smell is very vegetal. The flavor has gotten a little more deep into the oolong with hints of vegetal and savory flavors.
3rd Steep:
212° for 3 min.
The liquor has turned to a light brownish-yellow. The aroma has turned deep and vegetal with buttery notes. The flavor has a slight mineral taste to it along with a deep oolong flavor. There is still a slight buttery/vegetal flavor to it but it’s very light.
This is the first oolong I have tried steeping multiple times and I loved it! I think it is so amazing how the flavor changes with every steeping! Thanks again!!

drank Dragonwell by Love Teas
786 tasting notes

I received this in a random sample swap from Meowkattack! I decided I wanted to use my clear glass teapot today and I’m happy I did! The color of the liquor is beautiful, a light olive green. I don’t think I’ve ever really tried a dragonwell tea. The smell has a sweet fresh vegetable scent to it. The flavor is light and kind of reminds me of buttered peas. I haven’t enjoyed a plain green tea in some time so this was very refreshing! Thanks again!!

drank Floral Passion by Primula Tea
786 tasting notes

I totally forgot I had this! I got this in a set for Christmas last year. It came with a glass tea pot and 12 flowering teas. I love flowering teas! They are so beautiful. This was perfect for the mood I was in. I had a ton of sugar today so something light and far away from sugary-sweet seemed just right.
The red flower is very pretty. The flavor is very floral and light. It is lacking a little bit but hey, it fits for right now.

drank Red Velvet Cake by DAVIDsTEA
786 tasting notes

GAH! This tea is so good. Believe it or not I bought a red velvet cake slice from the grocery store just to taste it, and of course it was delicious. Well, this tea tastes EXACTLY like it. Frosting and all. It’s very creamy and smooth. Sweet and I can even taste the cream cheese-like frosting. This will most definitely be one of my “I need something sweet, NOW” teas. mmmmmm :]

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
786 tasting notes

Well today has just started out fantastic(sarcasm), so I needed something that would cheer me up a bit. The smell of this tea reminds me of warm cotton candy with it’s sugary sweetness. The little gold glitters make me happy. They are pretty. MM :] For some reason this tea just tastes like cotton candy to me. I can get the cinnamon, but it’s mostly sugar and vanilla flavors. I love it and I really want to order more!

drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
786 tasting notes

Wow, I would have never bothered to try this if I didn’t get a sample. This is so good! It’s very unique. It’s lemony, slightly spicy, and slightly fruity. But it’s all very subtle and warm. Many people said it reminded them of Thai Curry and as soon as I tasted it I agreed 100%! There is just something weird about this tea that makes my taste buds dance. Oh, DavidsTea I am impressed yet again..

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 :]
