987 Tasting Notes

This was actually pretty good for a green tea, which isn’t usually my favourite. It was nice and fruity and the base wasn’t too vegetal. I would like to try it cold as well, but I was too cold for cold drinks.

This is one delicious rooibos! The flavour of creamy lime is very prominent. The rooibos base is very light which is nice. I googled chiffon and found out it is cake. I am not sure if I got any cake flavour or not. I was too distracted by all the creamy lime!
Good dessert tea! I can see myself restocking this baby!

drank English Breakfast by Zen Tea
987 tasting notes

Thank you Zen tea for this sample.
This is a pretty standard English breakfast, gives ya a kick in the butt to start the day. Notes of malt and a touch of astringency. I didn’t add anything, but I will next time out of curiosity, because it says to on the package…teehee.

I didn’t look up the brewing parameters before brewing, so I went with 1.5 Tbls, boiling water for 5. Minutes. Then, I saw on here that 5 minutes is the far end of brewing parameters. This long steep time did make the tea a bit astringent so I will definitely lower the steep time next time. You know it is in the morning….I JUST NEED TEA….NOW! Haha, or I am anyway!

Anyway, what part of the tea that wasn’t astringent was delicious, sweet pumpkin and creamy marshmallows. I don’t think I got a proper taste though. Next time, I will follow the parameters.

I am the first person to review this?
This is a backlog and unfortunately I didn’t write down notes when I drank it. I didn’t really enjoy it hot that much, but it was very refreshing cold. It was sweet and tart. I enjoyed the goji berries.
Sorry, that’s all I remember at the moment. I will have to drink it again sometime and write a better note.

drank Vanilla black tea by Zen Tea

I always love a good vanilla tea, so I like to try as many as I can! This tea is just ok for me at this point. The black tea base is a little bit astringent so maybe I will try a 2 minute steep next time. The vanilla is ok, slightly sweet.

drank Phoenix Pearl by Zen Tea
987 tasting notes

These “pearls” are really good. They are smooth and sweet with those cocoa notes that I have grown to love in Yunnan black teas, and a hint of earthiness. The price is fairly good as well, especially because I bought them in sale!
I will have to compare them to my beloved Teavivre black pearls


Yes, I realized after I had tried a few pearls that the Zen version is actually like what I’ve seen described as “snails”. Ah well! I still love these.


Ya, I was kinda surprised that they weren’t actually pearls when the name is “Phoenix pearl”

drank Peach HoppiTea by Butiki Teas

My 600th tasting note!
I saved this sample for last because I was the most curious about this blend. Thanks Stacy!
This was deliciously peachy, with a hint of sweetness.
I am not usually a fan of beer, but the hops in this tea add a very interesting note. It is kind of hard to describe. I am not even sure what hops are. I should have paid more attention but I was mostly focused on the delicious peach flavour.
Overall, a unique and pleasant tea!


Congrats on 600!


Congratulations! An interesting note….hops and marijuana are in the same family.


congrats on hitting 600!


Yay – congrats!


Thanks everyone!


600! woohoo!

On the weekends I like to indulge in some of my favourite teas.
Well, this is certainly up towards the top of my list. I might need to increase the rating even. Today it seemed extra creamy somehow. Deliciously refreshing as well. As much as I didn’t really enjoy this tea hot when I ordered it, I definitely enjoy it hot now!

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.
