1777 Tasting Notes

Having a second cup (drank the first before I thought about logging) to just calm and chill down at work. Tea, soothing away the stress.

drank Cold Zing (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1777 tasting notes

Cold Zing tastes pleasant. The flavors are incredibly smooth with the citrus notes being very forward. However, the body seems a true mixture of all the flavors. Lemongrass is prominent, while peppermint sits in the background. Notes of what I assume are echinacea and/or eleuthero root are noticeable in the body, too, though I cannot quite tell, which is which. There is a very slight medicinal, herb flavor to the tea.

I really got away from drinking matcha for a while, but this weekend saw the return of the matcha to my daily drinking, and I am happy to have it now for some mental clarity, as I work through some issues with clients.

Finishing the last of this package, too!
Steeped for a long time. Talk about a really dark, green tea!

Drinking the last of this tin of tea! Which also happens to be the last of the flat of six tins I bought, two summers ago. Whew, that was a lot of tea!

You must really like this one.

I used to love this tea. Not as much, now, and I will not be ordering more than a tin, if I restock.

Just finished my sample of this. It was a tasty, semi-rich shou. Worked great for a morning cuppa at work.

Edit: I suppose I should rate, based on my personal enjoyment. Hmmm…90/100.

Bit of sweetness and some good walnut + green tea taste.

drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Tasty, but not much for milky aroma, and the flavor – while good – is not up to par with most milk oolongs available.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
1777 tasting notes

#24DaysOfTea Day 1 – The apple-cinnamon taste is pretty good, and this makes a pleasant herbal blend. I know the nut is almonds, but it reminds me of walnuts for some reason. For the first cup, I steeped it at 7 minutes. Then, in the second cup, I resteeped the same blend, plus some Sungma Classic SFTGFOP1 from Tea Time for a bit of a nutty caffeine hit. Despite the resteep, the nutty aromas are still there, and the apple-cinnamon is a good accompaniment to the light black tea.

Starting the morning in a great way with a four-cup pot of this. The citrus notes are especially prominent, as I only used enough leaf for three cups and then let it sit for a longer stretch of time.

Bio

“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.
