940 Tasting Notes

Sip down! This was enjoyable but I won’t be ordering it again. I much prefer the puerh tuo chas from Butiki :)

drank Unknown Puerh by Red Leaf Tea
940 tasting notes

Not a bad puerh! I wasn’t expecting much out of this since it was free and all (just paid for shipping) but it actually turned out to be a good smooth non-fishy cup of pu! I probably should have cut the cube in half, I am not sure I will be able to drink enough cups during the day at work today to use up these leaves. Might have to take them home after work and do a cold steep as ashmanra suggested :D

Thanks a bunch Red Leaf Tea!

I had such a busy day yesterday! Huge printmaking sale and then a Weird Al concert last night! Looking forward to spending most of today in my Jammie’s drinking tea and canning gobs and gobs of salsa from our garden! This oolong tastes perfect today :)

Weird Al concert? Really, such thing still exists?? Must have been tons of silly fun!

JustJames

Stephanie

Tons of silly fun is the perfect way to describe it actually :D

drank Hazelnut Truffle by Tea Forte
940 tasting notes

I bought a couple of single packets of different Tea Forte teas at my local tea retailer. I love when people sell small amounts because tasting different teas is my favorite! Anyway, this one has a pretty simple black base, nothing extraordinary, but not terrible either. I’m getting more nutty notes than chocolate notes…also something reminiscent of cinnamon? Anyway, not bad for bagged tea. Not exactly like Nutella like I was hoping, but a decent hazelnutty treat :)

Bleaaahhh! This came as a free sample with my latest David’s order. Tastes like hibiscus with some fake raspberry flavor and stevia. Iced it would probably taste like crystal light. ICK

Hot brewed this extra strong and poured over ice. Excellent! I love the lighter flavor of the white tea even more than the traditional black base peach iced tea :)

YUM! This is one of my faves. Picked up 250g of it in David’s discontinued teas web special (still going on but they are sold out of this one). I’m splitting it with a friend! Even as much as I like it there is no way I could go through that much tea before it goes stale. Anyway, one of my favorite dessert teas. Very choco-banana-y and not artificially flavored like so many of David’s offerings.

So you’re the one who took the last bag! :)
I wanted this one and it was there one day and the next morning when I went to place my order after sleeping on it, this one was gone. The moral is… l don’t ever sleep on it when you want a tea badly. :)

Stephanie

Oh bummer! :( Have you tried Butiki’s Foxy Roxy’s Banana Walnut Treat? It is just as good! Missing the chocolate note, but really damned good sweet banana/nutty tea :)

Nxtdoor

Yes, I have. Didn’t know they taste similar since I’ve not had the banana dream pie. I’m still looking for a good banana tea. Just banana, nothing else. Monkey fart from 52teas smells divine but the taste, not so much. And I’ve had DAVIDs banana oolong, have giant web sale bag. Good but it’s oolong. I want a black or herbal.

Not bad, not bad! To me this tea is a generic “tropical” white. I personally can’t pick out any individual fruit flavors here. I am drinking it hot but I think it would be even better iced. I’m going to throw the rest of my sample in the fridge to cold brew I think :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

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