818 Tasting Notes

I am working on some older Teavivre samples this week. This tea was a little more astringent than I remember, but it was still delicious. It was slightly smoky and fruity.
I used about 1.5 tsp, and resteeped for 3 minutes.

I found another one of these sample packages yesterday hiding at the bottom of a sample bag. That is wonderful because I was craving a good TGY yesterday.
Mmmmm, so creamy, buttery, and smooth.
The resteep at 2 minutes is even better than the first steep.

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 0 sec

I ordered this the other day, so I figured I better try it again since I haven’t drank it for awhile. If I didn’t like it, I guess it would be too late anyway.
Well, no worries, I like it!
It is sweet and creamy, and coconutty. And sooo delicious as a latte. There is a little bit of cheesecake tang in the aftertaste.
Yum

Tomorrow morning before the dentist, I think. Now I need to go to sleep so I’m not exhausted for my appointment. Not sure how much tea I’ll be drinking after it :(

tigress_al

I hate the dentist :(. Good luck!

I still really like this blend. There isn’t enough chocolate, but is there ever? lol
I would totally get this one again if they brought it back next year.

VariaTEA

I like this combined with Della Terra’s S’mores tea.

tigress_al

Hmm, that would be good VariaTEA. I wonder how they would compare as well

This is a sipdown, however I can not remove it from my cupboard because somehow I never added it in the first place!
I really like the papaya/peach freshness of this energizing blend.
I might restock in the future
Goodbye for now ju ju

I had this last night as well as tonight because my stomach has been acting up a little and I thought this might help to settle it a little. It worked last night, but hasn’t worked tonight so far, so here’s hoping!
I am still working on sipdowns because some of these teas are getting super old. I doubt mint goes bad though.

Backlog from yesterday.
Even though there is stevia in here, and I would much prefer my tea unsweetened, I do really enjoy this black tea. It is sweet and juicy.

I still really enjoy this flavoured oolong, even though there isn’t too much oolong taste. It is mostly cranberry with a little Saskatoon berry and some sweetness.
I had 2 mugs of this today.

I love this one! I miss it quite often, honestly.

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.
