1806 Tasting Notes

Years ago, I had a source for quite a few of the offerings from Lindsay’s Teas. That source eventually raised their prices beyond what was acceptable, and I found other places from which to get my tea fix.
Fast forward to now, living in a new area. A cafe that is on my way to work – but into which I had never stopped – finally presents an opportunity for me to visit. In that visit, I purchase this delightful blend and try another (Russian Caravan with Vanilla).
I am quite glad for the rediscovery.

After quite a few cups of this, today, my sample is finished. Not a bad tea – makes an enjoyable cuppa.

Drinking the last of this blend and finally writing a review. Many thanks to my coworker, who brought this from his trip to Hawaii!

“…I must say that I am incredibly pleased that this tea does not taste entirely of fruit and vanilla.
“…the flavors themselves blend quite well! I get a lot of coconut and pineapple to accompany the taste of the black tea. Then, the vanilla smooths the other flavors and provides a pleasant aftertaste. "

Full review will be available, later today, on http://createwritedrink.com

A cold-brewed cup of this is quite refreshing for this afternoon.

Go-to, quick cup of pu’erh. Steeped for 5-10 minutes, today. It will do for now, until I can make a better shou, later.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
