442 tasting notes

Am pretty glad I only got a small amount of this one. David doesn’t do pu’erh to my taste so I went into this tea with trepidation . . . and I was right, but for different reasons. Normally all I get from their pu’erh is fish and count me shocked to discover that I didn’t this time, dry or brewed. I love how this tea smells in the bag, all fruity and delish. But brewed its just too dark of a pu’erh for me and the more I sip the more I’ve decided I really can’t finish the cup.

Ooh, I should try my sample of this one tonight. When I opened it up to swap some of it, I was re-intrigued with it, but then forgot, haha.

I definitely prefer the Berry Good that came out the same day. It is a blend though rather than a flavoured tea. Looking forward to seeing what you think. :D

I’ve tried the Berry Good, and liked it as well. Probably will prefer it to this one as well! Haha, can’t resist trying EVERYTHING though…. (is it bad that I was relieved when February’s TOTM was a tea I already had? :P)

Tina S.

Not bad at all, I was kind of the same way. I’ve done the entire wall, including the hard to find ones like gyokuro black. It was nice to have a month to sip down!

DavidsTea nearly scared me off pu’erh forever. Theirs is always rotten-fishy and gross. That they are now throwing fruit at it … eek. Thanks for the review/warning.

Thanks for the review. Been through the whole wall myself as well and on a break lately as none of the new ones have been interesting enough to get me in store. Going on two months now since I have been to store, however with the spring collection I will likely be back in to pick up small amounts. Heard that the fall tea Copabanana is making a come back as part of the spring collection.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
