1105 Tasting Notes

I am not sure that I would consider this bold enough to be a “breakfast tea” but it was very enjoyable.

I mostly got citrus notes followed by malty chocolate and vanilla. it probably isn’t something that I would order but certainly good.

This was a lovely green tea, the base was fairly mellow which I enjoy. It was fruity with peach and cantaloupe being in the forefront. Now that I read the description, I guess I got some passion fruit but no strawberry. This was one delicious cuppa and I imagine it would be great cold brewed as well. I would be scared that the base would be more pronounced in a cold brew though.

Thank you Sil for this sample.

I have never had a French tea before, so I was excited to try it.

This is a beauty of a tea, if not a touch delicate. The cocoa and cherry are barely there but sure make for a smooth cuppa. The base is nice, a little on the delicate side as well, but very tasty!

Like Sil has mentioned in her notes, I might try a longer infusion next time to see if the flavours come out a little more.

Thank you for the sample Sil

I can see why this is called holiday blend. It is bready/malty/ and a little fruity. Cocoa notes are present for me way in the background. This would be good to drink during the holidays wrapped up in a warm blanket reading a book. It’s just that cozy…..or should I say damn fine???!!!

Thank you for the sample Sil

This one is fairly smoky which is something that I don’t reach for very often. 4 oz is WAY too much of this tea for me! Maybe if it came in smaller quantities I would consider it.

I did enjoy it though, it is woodsy as well, and I find it to be a fairly complex tea.

I tamed down the tiger a little bit and it was delicious this time! There is less astringency and it is a little less bold, which is to my liking. The malt makes this a smooth cuppa. And there is certainly a caffeine punch to this tea! Great for the morning!

Thanks again for the sample Sil!

Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness! I think I am putting this entry in the right tea.

I really enjoyed this white tea cold brewed. So many white teas are berry, so the currant was really a refreshing change. I would order this if it became available again.

I am so behind in my tasting notes. I have been enjoying lots of tea lately, I just haven’t had the opportunity to sit and log!

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

Green tea is my least favourite tea, but this was fairly decent. Not something I would order, but I certainly would not refuse a cup if offered! I’m glad I got to try it.

Sil

i am with you on that one!

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

This wasn’t my favourite white tea, but it was still enjoyable. The blueberry and lemon were a little too subtle for my tastes. I still slurped it all up though!

Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness

I really enjoyed this one cold brewed. The bamboo is refreshing and there is hints of lemon and strawberry. It probably helped that there was a huge chunk of dried strawberry in the brew!
I will likely HAVE to order this next time…..lol

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.
