903 tasting notes

I’m very clearly in the minority for this tea lol, but I stand by that for me, this is a darn tasty tea. Maybe I just got a good batch of it! Unfortunately I am almost out, so hoping that if I restock, the next one is as good. This is slightly nutty, chocolatey, warming goodness this morning. -23 C out haha, getting colder! The licorice provides a cozy sweetness. Mmm perfect this morning. See previous notes!

I wonder what this would taste like with amaretto liqueur, or Baileys..or, well, something along those lines. Haha, can’t you tell I wish it was the weekend already? :D I sense a tea experiment coming on!

It was -23 there this morning?!? OMG that means it’s going to be COLD here in the next day or so – and I was whining at -10 this morning.
Booze and desserty teas are a very good thing….

Yeah pretty chilly, my phone said with wind chill it felt like – 36 haha, but supposed to be warmer tomorrow at least! Good tea drinking weather at least lol

MissLena

And I’ll have to try some teas with alcohol, I don’t have them that often

Well the good news is that you might be able to buy buttloads of it on the web specials if it turns out you’re in the minority of people who enjoy it.

Also, OMG. That’s ridiculously cold. I haven’t encountered that since Alberta, and I was only there a few years. :p

MissLena

Yeah it’d be cheap probably, but I don’t think I need 100g or more of this tea haha, I rarely get over 50g of my favorites! And I’m in AB… So that explains the cold weather lol :p every single year, usually a few times haha

So cold! This morning was -28, -38 with the windchill here. That just means hot tea!

MissLena

Ouch, I feel for you! It’s a bit warmer here today, but snowing..again. Haha good ol’ winter..

i’m not gonna lie.. i didn’t hate this one.. i just didn’t love it.. i’m not a huge chocolate fan… i think if i was, i’d really like it.

MissLena

I think it’s the nuttiness that I like about this one, and it’s resemblance to hazelnut coffee, it kind of reminds me of the flavored creamers in a way haha. I’m not a huge chocolate fan either, or coffee, so it’s kind of weird that I like this one so much!

Profile

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

MissLena’s rating system
(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
