1137 Tasting Notes

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!

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

This tea is so delicious hot or cold brewed. I have been brewing, resteeping, and then cold brewing, using all the same leaf. 1T for 16 oz of water.
Delicious. Every. Cup

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

Thanks to Teavivre for providing this sample!
I used the whole sample for this brew.
This tea was delicious and so aromatic. The leaves are long and twisted.
Notes of honey and stone fruit were the most prominent for me. It is warming and leaves a sweet, lingering taste. Delicious
This will be on the order list next time I place one!

Thank you to Angel at Teavivre for these samples
I didn’t realize that I had sampled this tea already!
I hope I have this in the correct listing
This was a smooth, fresh green oolong. It is buttery and vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. The resteep seems to be creamier and even more delicious

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.
