812 Tasting Notes

92

I received this tea as a sample a year ago but it still tastes delicious.
I really like this tea. White chocolate, vanilla, and spearmint meld really well together, especially with a honeybush base. I need to get more honeybush blends because I really enjoy them
I don’t usually make additions, but I felt like I deserved a treat today. Hey, it’s Saturday right! The creamer made this super delicious

Sample sipdown! I got this sample from Amanda a year ago but this tea still tastes awesome. I regret not ordering some of this. It’s smooth and root beer with very light buttery notes. I added a tiny bit of milk and it really ramped it up!
Cold, this is really good as well

I am the first to review this! The dry leaves are fuzzy, long, and beautiful.

This is a very light tasting tea. I am getting mostly hay and honey notes with some slight nutty notes. The mouthfeel is smooth, and almost seems silkier in the resteep. This is a nice white tea, it would be good for those days that I want something light and unflavoured. It seems that I am craving straight teas more and more as I taste higher quailty teas.

Resteeped for 4.5 minutes

drank Citrus Dream by Butiki Teas

I had this last night and it was so relaxing. It is prominently chamomile of course, but there are slight fruity notes that come through in the end. I didn’t really get any floral notes, but that’s ok. Very nice for the evening. Not my favourite tea but probably one I will keep on hand.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

I had an idea to turn this tea into a bath tea and it turned out marvellous! I am not a fan of lavender in tea, but in a bath, it is so relaxing. So I put Epsom salts, tea, a tiny bit of lavender essential oil, and some baking soda as a skin softener.
Ah, now that’s one glorious bath!

That’s awesome!
I should try doing that with some of the teas I don’t really care for :)

Yep! I heard white tea is supposed to be good for your skin so I figured what the heck! Might as well try it

Mmmm, so delicious. I used 1 tsp of leaf for this cup.
This Keemun is so smooth with some sweet fruity notes and a tiny bit of malty smoke in the background somewhere.
It is good chilled as well.
I am going to have to compare Teavivre’s Keemuns because I am going to have to keep one of them stocked for sure!
Which level of Keemun is most preferred by you Steepsterites!?

I also love their Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant but it’s so much more fruity and chocolaty, it’s hard to compare. I just keep both cause they each serve their purpose!

I have only tried the Orb. Superfine Fragrant Keemun. I need to try this one too. :)

Thank you so much to Angel at Teavivre for these free samples!

This tea is a very green oolong with lingering buttery notes of fresh spinach and greens. It tastes very fresh and sophisticated.

The second steep at 2 minutes was my favourite steep, with a little bit less vegetal notes and a little more sweetness.

The third steep at 3 minutes is still delicious.

I think I prefer the Anxi TGY or the Monkey King but I would certainly not turn down a cup of this and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was very curious about this tea because pineapple is one of my favourite fruits. So I ordered a sample!
I used the whole package, so I guess 4 tsp.
Once brewed, this is super strong and it is really weird drinking this hot. Resteep at 10 minutes.
I chilled both steeps together overnight.
Chilled, this tea is much improved. It tastes like tart pineapple fruit punch. I added a tiny bit of sugar and it helped a little bit. It is an alright tisane. However, still not my fav, I much prefer their blueberry fruit tea. I am glad I got to try it though.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This is another good tea, with true flavours that don’t taste even a pinch artifical, pure genius!
A good black base lends some body to the nuttiness and it is smoothed out a little by the banana.
This is a lovely tea. However, I am not the biggest fan of banana teas for some reason. I don’t know why because I love banana. But, of course, I need to try as many Butiki teas as I can!
So, this one, banana oolong (DavidsTea), and monkey fart (52teas) are the only banana teas that I can tolerate so far.

Resteep at 3.5 minutes.

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.
