1105 Tasting Notes

This tea tricked me because I thought it was an oolong (judging by appearance alone). Lol, I should have read the description.

For a green tea, it is a good one. It tastes very crisp— like fresh cut grass almost. It is vegetal and the slightest bit sweet.

This was enjoyable. Citrus and floral were the most prominent notes for me. These are not my favourite notes in tea so it wouldn’t be something I would order but I’m glad I got to try it. Sometimes tastes change, so every now and then I try something again to see if my tastes have in fact changed!

This was a delicious cuppa on a cold rainy spring day. The chocolate and vanilla tastes fairly natural and the rooibos base wasn’t overwhelming or too woodsy. If I ever ordered from this company, this would likely make it into the cart.

Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

I really enjoy this one cold brewed and I was glad to have another pitcher of it!!

This was a lovely tea with prominent notes of strawberry and rhubarb. I am not sure that I would have picked out those flavours though if I would have tasted this blind. It is slightly floral in the black tea base, or maybe due to the addition of the flower petals. Very enjoyable.

This is delicious, it is a creamy buttery oolong with notes of caramel. It is very smooth and slightly sweet.

The package states that it is aging so I can only imagine how delicious it is when it is fresh! If I ever put in an order here, this would definitely be on the list!

The resteep was enjoyable, with less creamy caramel.

I am really enjoying these French teas, it seems like their bases have a slight floral note about them….or is that just my bias?? lol

This vanilla is fairly strong, it doesn’t taste completely natural but I don’t mind that boozy vanilla flavour either. I really enjoyed this one and I think it would be super good with a splash of milk to round out that vanilla.

This is a really good pear tea which is a hard flavour to get right—and taste natural. The pear isn’t as sweet as it may have been in a white or green blend, it would likely be brightened up with a touch of sugar. There is a slight floral note in the middle of the sip and a slight astringency in the aftertaste.

Overall, probably one of the best pear teas I have tasted.

look at you getting through all the fancy french teas. Hope it’s a fun journey even if you don’t love them all heh. I find there’s usually more of the base present in the french teas, making the flavours more subtle than i’m used to from north american companies

Yep, definitely more subtle flavouring, but I don’t mind that either!

if you find one you fall in love with, let me know. I have lots and won’t get around to drinking it all, so happy to share/swap whatever.

I really enjoy vanilla teas and this one is no exception. It is smooth, with just that little hint of Darjeeling. The vanilla tastes fairly natural and just a little sweet. There is a slight astringency in the aftertaste.

This was a pleasant cup of subtle orange black tea. I found a hint of spice in the background—the cardamom I guess.

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.
