1351 tasting notes

So yesterday my wife and I headed downtown and decided to give Tealish another chance after talking to the owner about some of the issues we’d had with the store. We picked up 7 bags of tea, well, 6 bags and a cup to go, but as we were waiting for the streetcar, the wife decided she needed a bag of that as well XD.

One of those teas was this lovely little number. After disclosing that I have over 250 teas in my cupboard, my wife mentioned we should make a spread sheet of them: Tea name, company name, how much I have, and where it is in my tea storage system.

So we did. It took us three hours, but I had a cup of this while we were working and it is beyond delicious. It’s so fruity and light and yummy! I definitely see this becoming a favorite, and I do need to try it iced. The rooibos isn’t overpowering at all, and the strawberry and kiwi mix together beautifully. Awesome, awesome tea.

I want David’s Tea to make a strawberry kiwi tea – mostly because DT is accesible.

It becomes necessary with this number of teas. The final count, not counting most bagged teas, is 210. With more on the way. >.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
