243 tasting notes

My first official logged sipdown!
I’m going to try and drink as much tea as possible tonight and wash this lurking sickness out of me.

Initial dry notes: vanilla citrus with a touch of cream
Liquor: creamy custard vanilla with a nice citrus. Not a very strong ‘oolong’ flavour coming through.. Which is okay sometimes.

Overall it’s not too bad. I would buy this again possibly if my entire stocks of tea get low.. but I also would like to try the new Vanilla oolong DT has before I’d commit to a 50g bag of this (judging by the rate at which I drank my 15g sample…)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C

I think Vanilla Orchid is definitely superior to this one, it has a more natural vanilla taste and the oolong shines through a lot more.

I prefer Vanilla Orchid, although I’ll admit that overall I’m not a fan of either. Hope you get better soon!

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
