812 Tasting Notes
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
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
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.
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!?
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.
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.
