1092 Tasting Notes

Thank you for the sample Sil!

I have been wanting to try this FOREVER but didn’t want to buy 4oz of something that I had never tried before! So now, to figure out which one(s) I want to order from this company!

I have a fascination with tigers, they are just amazing creatures. So of course this is the tea that I brewed up first. It is malty and smooth, a high quality assam for sure. It is bold, however, I am getting quite a bit of astringency. I seem to enjoy my blacks at around 3 minutes, so I will try that next time. I really enjoy this tea and I am guessing that this will be on the order list.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp
Sil

this one WAS my favourite – i’ve gone through 2 tins of it, but now i’m learning more towards some of the others…oktoberfest, holiday blend…double knit….heh

Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

Rose isn’t generally a flavour that I enjoy in tea, but I like to try them now and again to see if my tastes have changed. Nope, I still don’t like rose. It is a perfectly good tea, just not for me. I’m glad to have tried my tastes again, so thanks for that Evol!

This is a delicious creamy oolong. The maple and cheesecake are certainly present, but subdued. I actually appreciate that the flavouring is subtle to let the base have an appearance as well. Really, if I wanted something more robust, I would have reached for a black tea right!

I would definitely order this next time I make a 52teas order (if it happens to be available at the time)

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

Since it was so nice on the weekend, I needed a cold brewed white tea, and I very much enjoyed this. It is so summery with peach and vanilla and a little note of caramel. The raspberries somehow didn’t make it into my jug, but that’s ok because it was still good.. Slurp…..that disappeared quickly!

I really enjoyed this rooibos. I used the whole sample in my giant bird mug. It was a cold rainy evening and it spruced up my mood!

It isn’t too sweet which is what happens sometimes with maple flavoured teas IMO. I didn’t get much vanilla but I did detect notes of cinnamon. I would consider ordering this in the fall (if it is available again!)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

drank White Mischief 631 by Wicked Tea

Thanks for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

Fruity whites will forever be a favourite for me. I also enjoy blending them in fruit smoothies. So healthy!

I really enjoyed this hot, but as it cooled down, I enjoyed it even more. For me, the pomegranate stood out the most, and the guava is in the background. It tastes fairly natural. The flavours are fairly light.

It is also made a very good cold brew!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

No tasting notes on this one yet?

Unfortunately, the day that I drank this was one of those “hurry up and gulp your teas before it gets cold” kind of days and I forgot to jot down my tasting notes. Next time, I will pay more attention.

I enjoyed this tea as I have been trying to fend off a cold that my kids have. I don’t often reach for ginger when I am healthy. I find that it is enjoyed best with some honey and a couple of slices of lemon!

Sipdown. I have been drinking a lot of tea cold brewed lately as the weather warms up. I enjoyed this as usual!

There was only a tiny bit of this left, so I combined it with some pina colada honeybush (52teas). The resulting cold brew was delicious!!

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.
