1059 Tasting Notes


Still my favorite herbal blend so far. I’m sure i will be drinking plenty of it this winter!


Love this blend! I can add puerh or laoshan black when I want to which makes it versatile.


That sounds good! I’m picky and don’t like many caffeine free teas/tisanes so I usually save this one for nighttime :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Still can’t believe it ha ha

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Is this still the pack I gave you?


Nah, I finished that one ;) I’ve only got about half an ounce left of my other packet though!

Thanks for sending it along, btw.

First tasting note! Thank you Stacy for including a sample of this with my recent order :)

Fans of sencha, this tea is for you! Smooth and sweet and grassy without being bitter or overly astringent, this tea does have strong asparagus notes, and a tart cherryish taste too. SO GOOD I am loving it!


oooh, this sounds yummy


I love how complex it is…so much going on here :)

drank Qilan Wuyi Oolong by Verdant Tea

From the November Classic Club box…

Creamy, floral, dark, vaguely fruity, full bodied, and kind of bitter is how I would describe this tea. Definitely drinkable but I strongly preferred the Dancong. This is not one of my favorite type of oolong, BUT it is nice to drink something different and since BrewTEAlly Sweet and I split the box I don’t have a whole lot to sip through….sadly the same with the Dancong though :P

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I’m currently drinking this one:) for once I’m getting to my club samples!! :)

I decided this morning that today would be Green Tea Day for me :)

Green tea lovers, why haven’t you tried this one?? It is SO GOOD! Super sweet and buttery like creamy corn with a nice green tang. Perfect.

Drinking this unsweetened this afternoon. SUPER TASTY and I do think I’m getting some spiciness from the hops, too :)

I’m considering making this one into a tea syrup for tea sodas tonight. Or maybe Ruby Pie…or With Open Eyes! Oh I can’t decide!!

Butiki Teas

Ooooh. I think this or the Ruby Pie would make an interesting soda syrup!


ooh – I can’t wait until I get mine!
(And it hasn’t even shipped yet. :P)

New Harvest from the November Classic Club box. Yep, still tasty :D

Oh wow! Thank you for the sample of this with my order, Stacy. Now I know what I’ve been misssing!

No wonder everyone goes gaga over this one. So much going on here. It was love at first sip! :)

This also explains why the Caramel Vanilla Assam and Hello Sweetie are so popular as well! I might have to do a side by side some day of this and Laoshan black so I can pick a favorite black tea. SO GOOD! :D

Another sample from the awesome BrewTEAlly Sweet!

Ehh, it’s not bad. I like the coconut flavor but honestly it is a little on the weak side. Glad I got to try it :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Ha ha we both like our coconut-iness STRONG!

Thanks so much BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending me a sample of this one :)

I steeped at 200 degrees for 3.5 minutes. I can see why everyone is so fond of this one! This is very enjoyable with a natural maple flavor. I can’t stand artificial maple so you know if I like this tea it has got it going on! I drank it unsweetened, but it was still a treat! Very buttery. Perfect with pumpkin coffee cake for breakfast this morning :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Mmmmm sounds delicious! I should have sent you a slice of the pumpkin bread from work as well:)

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre, Yunnan Sourcing, TeaUrchin, White2Tea and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
