296 Tasting Notes

Backlog from yesterday, this is the third tea that I received with day 3 for the 12 days of Christmas.
ahhhh so much tea to get through.

This smelt nice creamy, vanillaey but also floral like. I really don’t like floral flavours.
once steeped it smells quite floral.
definitely not a tea for me, but glad to try it.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
296 tasting notes

I received this in a swap from reasoned_melody
it probably isn’t one I would have chosen for myself, but that’s what’s so great about swaps & the little extras.
I really enjoyed this, I brewed it hot, but probably would enjoy it cold even more so.
it’s fruity, sweet, tart & spicy… but just to say you get the spices which is great.
it reminds me a lot of vampire voodoo from The Tea Store in Ottawa.

very yummy!!

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

Received this in a swap from reasoned_melody

Wanted to try this for a while, but with no DAVIDsTEA within a bussing distance I had to wait.
The dry leaves smell just like cookie dough…. mmmmmm
This tea is scrumptious. It tastes JUST like cookie dough with chocolate chips. How they do this with the ingredient list is beyond me. So freakin good!

I got this in a swap from nwolf
I’ve kinda newly ventured into oolongs, after a recommendation from my local tea house.
This is good, creamy, slightly banana tasting & green tasting. (Although not earthy like the last oolong I had), It’s very green tasting, like a not quite ripe banana.
This is super nice, but not quite enough banana taste, but still a really great delicious tea. Probably one I will order!

I LOVE this tea.

As a recommendation from my tea ladies I gave this one a try, it’s a new one.
this is spool amazing. creamy, nutty, caramelly and so beautifully earthy at the end of the sip. This may be my absolute favorite tea ever.
I’ve had it twice since Monday & bought a bag.
I think my favorite part of this tea is the earthiness. it’s quite spectacular.
must try more flavored oolongs.

I finally got around to trying this. It was part of my black Friday order.

This smells very rooibos like in the leaves. Rooibos can be so hit or miss, I can smell the ginger mostly & kind of some fruityness.
Once steeped this smells bakey & cookie like, and mostly like ginger. This is really yummy. I don’t really think it tastes like a ginger snap. I expect a ginger snap to he spicy, gingeree & cinnamonee. I remember sucking on ginger snaps until they would melt. Yum.

Although not at all what I expected this is really delicious & cookie like, just not a ginger snap.

On the 12th day of Christmas Sare sent to me, this tea.

I’m a little late on this, but I have been spending a lot of time with my girls and family while I have time off work.

So I made a whole pot today in my new tea pot, I also got some of this from my cousin.

I was sprised not to see vanilla in the ingredients list, I found it to be creamy & sweet. Lightly minty & 7 delicious. This a really nice holiday tea, but I would probably drink it all year long.

I ended up receiving this tea as a sample after they forgot to include them in my iniitial order, then sent me 6.

The dry notes are fruity & citrusy. However on the package it says nothing about citrus.
Once brewed its much the same.
The taste is fruity, very citrus & sweet. Also kind of medicinal. There is also a strange after taste, I can’t figure it out for the life of me.
The notes on here say there is mint? I’m not getting it, but maybe its what is reminding me of the medicinal taste.

I don’t know how to rate this tea, I like it, but its kind of strange.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

8th day of Christmas from The Purrfect Cup

As soon as I saw what tea it was, I was super excited. And then I made my daughter smell it, she is a Cantaloupe fiend. She could eat an entire melon by herself.

This is my first Butiki tea, & probably the one from there that I have wanted the most.
This smells exactly like cantaloupe! So meloney!

It steeps up to smell a little more cream like with the cantaloupe.
I’m not sure I get all that much cream, but man do you ever get the taste of a fresh, juicy, delicious cantaloupe. This is so true to the taste, it’s amazing. I definetly think I can get my little Serena (who will have nothing to do with) to drink this one iced.

And this is fabulous hot or cold. om nom nom

Day 7 of the 12 days of Christmas

When I opened this I knew it was going to be delicious. It smelt caramel like, like dulce de leche. I didn;t really get any coconut in smell, until I steeped. I wasn’t expecting much in regards to coconut because I have been let down by so many coconute teas before.

But this…. OMG! This is devine. Sweet, coconut, caramel. Amazing. This is THE coconut tea I have been looking for. It is soooo good, even though it has been sitting all day.
