767 Tasting Notes

Merry Christmas to my Steepster family!
I shared a Christmas morning pot of this tea with my family. I just love watching children open Christmas presents.
This tea was comforting and perked me up for a fun filled day of family time.
I thought this tea was fairly enjoyable but I don’t think that I would repurchase it.

Yum! This tastes like Christmas to me. Vanilla, orange, and sparkles!

I shared a pot of this with my family last night and it was buttery scones. Family and tea….is there anything better!
I enjoyed this honeybush.

That sounds really interesting – how long ago did this one come out? And I feel you on the family thing – all my family is in Regina with the exception of an Aunt (whom I’m seeing tomorrow). So, I’m all alone today! But, it’s gonna be nice to not have Christmas entirely to myself. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

I remembered from last time that I brewed this to use a tea bag, otherwise the infuser gets too oily and gross. This was ok tonight, sweet enough for me to enjoy.
Actually, I can’t believe that I still have this, it is getting old. It is really getting time to do some serious sipdowns. Now, if only I could stop ordering more tea for awhile so I could drink up some older teas!

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
767 tasting notes

Hmm….I wasn’t expecting so many black teas in this box, I thought there would be more variety. There has only been one honeybush, and all the rest have been blacks. Oh well, I am liking the surprise of scratching the bag to find out what the tea of the day is!

I didn’t expect this tea to have such large candy corn candies. I don’t mind candy corn, but I don’t think that I would go out of my way to find it or anything. This tea though, is pretty good. It is sweet and fun. Too bad I didn’t have this on Halloween. I don’t think I would order a bag though.

drank Butter Rum by 52teas
767 tasting notes

Backlog from yesterday
This tea is quite enjoyable, I like the addition of the vanilla to add that smoothness. It does taste like rum candy, but not that sweet. As much as I did enjoy this tea, I think I enjoy DavidsTea version of the Buttered Rum better.

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
767 tasting notes

Oh boy, this tea puts my cupboard at over 200 teas, and I haven’t even added all the teas from my Butiki order, and none from my Verdant order! NO NEW ORDERS for a long time…….I hope.

Backlog from yesterday. This tea is delicious. I get how it has some similar notes to black tea. I really enjoy the malty, fruity, sweet notes of caramel that I get from this tea. I was a little scared to use boiling water, but it definitely does the trick.
The resteep was also enjoyable.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Vanilla Cream by Butiki Teas

Brewed strong as an eggnog latte treat, because I deserve it after a frustrating week. My baby has just not been herself all week. But she was back to her happy self today! Here’s hoping she stays that way!

Anyway, the tea was super delicious tonight!

I re-stocked this tea before I even took it out of my “cupboard”! I guess I forgot when I sipped down my last bit awhile ago. Oh well, I will likely always have this in my cupboard anyway.
It tastes a little less caramel than usual today for some reason. But still so comforting on a cold winters day.

drank Weeping Angel Tea by 52teas

This is just an ok tea for me. I definitely get toffee flavour and I can see where the popcorn is going. But, it is almost a little too salty. Next time, I will have to add some sweetener and see where that takes the flavour.

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.
