818 Tasting Notes
Another white tea I enjoy.
This is creamy lemon mostly with slight hints of coconut and ginger.
The white tea notes are present, but only slightly in the background.
Resteep at 5 minutes
This is best as an iced tea for sure! The creaminess and the coconut are a little more pronounced.
Backlog…..from 2 weeks ago.
Personal note—I have been sick for the last 2 weeks with really bad acid reflux and couldn’t drink any tea :( But, now I am back, having tea in small moderate amounts.
Thank you to Lala for this tea in our swap!
As the name mentions, this tea is very minty. However, I am not getting much spice, but that is completely fine by me. This is a delicious oolong.
Thank you Lala for this tea!!
I used 1Tblsp for this cuppa.
This reminds me of Earl Grey Oolong by DAVIDsTEA but this is much higher quality and taste. It is buttery oolong foremost with citrus that isn’t quite earl grey because of the fruitiness from the goji berries. Floral notes hide in the background and slowly make their way forward.
I have no idea what saffron or frankincense tastes like so I can’t really comment on them.
I resteeped for 3 minutes and I found it tastes pretty much the same with a little more floral coming out.
Sample sipdown, but then I just realized that I also have a bag of this.
Iced, this is very good. I made it the real icing method with making it double strength and adding ice to it. The grape flavour comes out better iced than hot for sure. Still enjoying this one.
Sample sipdown! This is a really old sample from Amanda (who I don’t think is active anymore).
This is delicious, slightly sweet and smooth with just a touch of strawberry hiding in the background
Iced, I think its even better. It is a little sweeter. I have this as an SBT version, so I will have to try that sometime too.
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.
