837 Tasting Notes

Thanks for the sample yssah! I think my milk oolong got infected with cherry flavoring from another sample tea. When I opened my swap package everything was SO CHERRY smelling. So far none of the ones I have tasted have seemed infected but I am definitely getting a cherry note from this oolong. It is tasty though! :)

A cherry flavoured milk oolong actually sounds pretty good.

I have SO many new teas and samples right now it was so hard to choose my morning tea today! Not a bad problem to have mind you ;)

Anyway, this is really hitting the spot this morning. I am getting more coconut flavor than anything else, but I’m really liking it! Its subtle but not in a bad way. Nice and creamy too. Thanks for the swap Yssah!

Harney has some terrific stuff for incredible prices, particularly if you’re near one of their stores

Yay! I finally got to try this one! It is pretty much exactly what I expected…creamy white tea goodness with bright juicy pineapple and a cilantro zing. Reminiscent of all my favorite southeast asian foods, in a good way! Definitely great if you are in the mood for something different! And the dry leaf is so beautiful too. Keep up the innovative blending, Stacy! :)

I’ve never had a high end black tea like this before! Thank you cheetah_pita for including it in our swap! The first steep is so malty and caramelly and complex. I can see why everyone raves about this one! Can’t wait to steep it again :)

Sil

yay! another convert :)

Stephanie

I so can’t wait for my trial club package to come from them! What will be inside? Exciting!

Sil

Ooh exciting for you! :)

Thanks again to KiwiDelight for the swap! This one is awesome :) I love a good sencha and the walnutty/coconutty flavoring compliments it nicely! This is going on my next Della Terra order list!

drank Magnolia Oolong by Tea District
837 tasting notes

Thanks KiwiDelight for the sample! I am fond of oolongs and love the smell of magnolia blossoms so I was very curious about this tea! I agree with other reviewers that 1 tbs seems like a LOT of tea. I wish I had only used a tsp or 2 in my cup! I feel like this would be MUCH better if I had done that. I like the floral scent and sweetness of it but I’m getting a heavy almost bitter taste from the vast amount of tea leaves I used! I may rate this differently if I try it again with a different amount of leaves…

KiwiDelight

Did I write tbs instead of tsp?? Oh dear… ._.

Stephanie

I double checked on the website and it confirmed 1 TABLESPOON so I thought I’d try it…but yeah. WAY TOO MUCH, heh :)

KiwiDelight

I hope the second goes better! I haven’t had many oolongs, but I like this one.

Stephanie

I really like the magnolia part!

Stephanie

I got about a billion steeps from that tablespoon! haha…all the subsequent steeps were just fine and not too intense. Yummy in fact! Ooof too much caffeine today…

Had this one as an iced latte with almond milk for breakfast. I got the “distinctive” flavoring option and it is VERY berry pie flavored! I don’t think I will grow tired of this flavor any time soon but it makes me eager to try more matcha flavors from Red Leaf! Yum! :)
