1135 Tasting Notes

This was a sipdown this afternoon with my in laws. I love them dearly, but sometimes they are just plain crazy. Haha
Anyway, I really enjoy this tea and might have to get more to have iced in the summer. It is super finicky with brewing though.

I finished this tin off this morning with my sister in law. I will likely restock this one, but probably not until the winter because it seems like a winter tea to me. All glittery ad citrus, with that sweet vanilla at Christmas time.

Another sad sipdown.
I love the silky smooth mouthfeel of this tea. Sometimes, grape notes shine through and surprise me!
I will definitely order more of this in the future but for now I have lots of jasmine silver needle from Teavivre.
Sipping this tea down means that I am back down under 200 teas though so that’s good.

I needed a chocolate fix today, but it needed to be low calorie. And I was craving this tea because I haven’t even had it again since I restocked. This fit the bill for sure today!! Sweet and chocolatey with that little hint of coconut.

This tea puts me back up to 200 teas….so much for being under 200! I knew it wouldn’t last too long!
And this is tasting note 750!!!!

I really enjoyed the combination of coconut and mint with the black tea, but I found there to be a bitter aftertaste. What is it with me incorrectly brewing blacks lately?
My bad, I will try to brew this for less time and at a lower temp.

Hmmmm, I must be doing something wrong. I brewed this up with boiling water, which maybe was too hot because this was super bitter. Maybe I should shorten the steep time as well.

Iced, this is really good. The berries are still the most prominent, but the pineapple comes out a little more iced than hot.

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.
