258 Tasting Notes


I don’t think this is my kind of black tea. Better yet, I don’t think Yunnans and I get along so well.
I love a strong cocoa malt black tea. This has none of that of course, but I keep wanting it to. It’s very smooth and oily – coconut olive oil type oily….not what I would expect or relate to a black tea.

Maybe I need a few more rounds with this. I still have an ounce left so we have some time to get to know each other more. I’m still a skeptic though.

Seems I am one of the few who really enjoys this tea.
I’ve had this in my on the go mug and it’s awesome! I love cloves, so that makes me happy, but it does remind me of spice cake. It’s a great fall tea with the cloves, vanilla, and orange.
Plus, it resteeps so well!

So glad I picked some up :)


I don’t mind this tea either! It’s a nice warming blend :) I want to try it with milk soon!

This tea is absolutely wonderful.
Lychee is one of my favourite fruits and It was masterfully captured. I really appreciated the black tea they went with for this ball… I was really unsure how it would go with the lychee taste, but I really loved the malty black tea.
I only wish I stocked up :’(

Uhhhhh YUM!
I picked this up with a new travel mug.
Having it iced double strength.
It tastes like a fruity gummy bear. Like the natural fruit gummies with coconut, pineapple, and lemon
So good.

This is delicious.
Thick and creamy with a nice pine-like brightness that is sweet, similar to my beloved Silver Buds.
I definitely see the crispness like fresh napa cabbage (slight twinge of bitterness that makes you salivate) or fresh granny smith apple (like when you bite in and your tastebuds go wild with the sweet tart flavour).
Yum. Yum Yum

I iced this crazy tea as I didn’t really care for it that much hot, so I wanted to see how my opinion changed when it was cold brewed.
It’s good, probably better than hot brewed (it’s been a while).
I find though there is a strong note of dirt and wood.
Under that strong note is a mushroomy black tea that is sweet with hints of possibly malt, though not the characteristic malt you get with a black tea.
I like cold steeping this tea better I think, but its still not a favourite.

I liked this tea somehow initially.
I don’t know how… or maybe the tea was off this time?
I made the last bit as a large iced tea. It was so bad I poured it out.
Fake sweet peach with an odd cream taste

Glad this is gone.

Caramel chocolate brownie that was made with a sweet potato (you know.. the healthy brownies?)
It has an edge of bitterness that I associate with honey.

When the cup is empty, it always smells like ice tea powder to me after drinking this which is really strange.


This. One definitely has a lot of character!

Finally… Sipdown!
I hoarded this tea. Thankfully, I have the early picked spring from this year.

Definitely still creamy and delicious though!
It’s such a lovely sweet TGY filled with honeysuckle and what reminds me of mango sticky rice with mung beans. This may be due to the thickness of the liquor for the coconut aspect, but the aftertaste I’m getting for the 9th infusion reminds me of perfectly ripe mango. There is a bit of a vegetal broth-like note that reminds me of the mung beans. Oh Thailand. I miss you
This is such a delicious tea. I can’t believe the flavour even after all these months!

Had two cups of this tonight. It’s nice, but I find it a little strong on the florals side of things. Maybe my water was too warm? Occasionally I felt like I was drinking perfume.

I can see the potential it has, so maybe I should just play around with the steeping parameters. It did have really nice rock sweetness to it. I have hope.

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.
