1129 Tasting Notes

Sample from the Canadian Traveling Tea Box

I didn’t realize that I had tried this one already until I had already brewed it up! I really enjoy this tea. It is slightly cocoa notes with some sweetness (probably the honeybush), and some earthiness from the pu’erh. I would likely have this tea on the list if I ordered from this shop.

Thanks Shezza for including this in the Canadian Traveling Tea Box!

I had tried this tea years ago and was very happy to try it again today. It tasted more like root beer this time than I remember—I thought it was kind of a deeper, more “caramel” like flavour before. Who knows though, it was years ago!
Either way, I still really enjoyed this tea!

I remember it being like a caramelly rootbeer flavour. The first time it came out it was nice and creamy. The second batch was a little less creamy.

Mmmm, this was so good. The chocolate wasn’t that each kind of chocolate, it was more the darker chocolate that I enjoy. It was sweet enough that I didn’t have to add any sweetener (which I don’t like to add anyway).
Nutty, chocolate tea…how can you go wrong?
If I ever order from this company, this tea would certainly be on that list!
Thanks to whoever added this to the Canadian Travelling Tea Box!

drank Mango by Granville Island Tea Co

The fluffy white bits in this tea were a bit odd, and I am not sure if I tasted them or not. I am glad that I had used a tea bag though because they made a mess.
I cold brewed this overnight.
It was really refreshing and just a little sweet but not overwhelming. The mango was fairly natural tasting. This was a pretty good one!

Great tea to kick off the Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box! Thanks Shezza!
It isn’t as “coffee like” as I thought it was going to be which is good for me because I’m not a big fan of coffee. The chocolate is rich, not that “waxy”, cheap chocolate. The cherry is in the background but that’s ok. Delicious cuppa

Life has been super crazy here between mini-holidays, going back to work, finding daycare, and dealing with a sick family member! I have really only been drinking 1 cup of tea in the morning and that’s it :(

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the resteep today of this tea.
I used 9 pearls today

I mixed my last cup of this with some “strawberry cream” from zen tea and it was delicious.

I really enjoyed this delicious, malty, cocoa, bready tea.
I got 4 excellent cups of this from just 1 tsp of leaf steeping western style @ 3,3.5,3.5,4 minutes
I am not sure what the difference is between the regular laoshan black but I thoroughly enjoyed this and would order it again

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
