791 Tasting Notes

This is a partial sipdown tonight because I am pretty sure there is some of this is the best sellers sampler.
I brewed a very strong latte because there was only a little extra left but not enough for another cup. I really enjoy this strong!

This will be a short lived sipdown. I was hoarding this pouch but I have an order in the mail, so I finally got up the nerve to drink the rest of it up. I have a bad habit of “saving” my good teas, but I have no idea why. I am worth it, and I should drink special teas whenever I want!

I have found my preferable brewing of this tea to be 1 Tbls of leaf. For the first steep, I boil the water and let it cool for a minute or 2.
Then I resteep with boiling water for 4 and 5 minutes.

Flavors: Cocoa

Preparation
3 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

I’m the same way. I always hear my mom’s voice saying “save the best for last.” :-)

Funny, I did realize the same thing this year and changed my habits. Was saving my good tea, and by the time I was having it, it was stale or not as fresh as it should be. I now have my best teas on a heavy rotation every week. Feels really good :-)

Morgana, that’s what I always think too,
But you are right TeaFairy, I need to drink my best teas all the time,

This is a sipdown. Thanks again to Angel at Teavivre for this sample ages ago!
I enjoyed this white tea. Hay and light floral notes are the most prevalent.

I finally ordered more of this tea so now I can stop hoarding it. I made a Verdant order using my certificate from the Black Friday order. So, ya I have made too many orders lately.
This tea though, I want to always keep this cocoa gem in my cupboard. To my surprise, I actually have enough leaf for one more cup!

I finished off this tea on the weekend with the inlaws. It is very sweet and good for a treat. Goodbye for now, we might meet again sweet lips.

I found myself craving this tea for some reason this morning. And then I went on steepster and it was one of the first notes I saw. I forget who drank it though. Mm, malty caramel this morning, a real treat. Now off to resteep.

I don’t mind the new steepster but there are a couple of things that kinda suck:
-slider bar sucks on iPad/iPhone
-as Roswell Strange mentioned, I don’t like how the ingredients are alphabetically listed rather than by most prevalent

Flavors: Caramel

This is a sample sipdown. I didn’t have this is my cupboard though so I can’t take it out.
I wanted a TGY this morning but also wanted a touch of sweetness, so I ruffled around in my sample bags from Teavivre. This one fits that bill! The honey just adds that touch I sweetness that I was looking for. I don’t think that I would drink this everyday, but it’s nice for a sweet treat.

Boiling 1 min, 15 sec

I love these pearls. They are so silky and smooth, but not overpowering or perfumey. The base is nice and light and not bitter.

I enjoyed this tea yesterday with a dark chocolate banana muffin. Let me tell you, it was amazing that way. The malty notes are greatly pronounced and they complemented each other perfectly.
Now I need to make more muffins…haha.
But seriously, I do thoroughly enjoy this tea.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.
