drank Strawberry Cream by Zen Tea
1105 tasting notes

This is a delightful, creamy cup of tea. The strawberry is nice and sweet but not overpowering or too fake. I didn’t add anything, but I imagine a splash of milk or cream would make it even more delicious.
I should have tried to resteep it.
I also should have ordered a bigger bag than just the 20 gram sample.

I’ve emailed them about this tea, and they say it will be back in stock on Tuesday!

tigress_al Yay! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

That’s good to know! I’ve been missing this tea.

drank Bossa Nova by Zen Tea

I don’t mind this. I really enjoy hazelnut, which was apparent right away. It does taste a tad bit artificial as others have mentioned. I do really enjoy nutty teas though, so I don’t imagine I will have any trouble drinking this!

Thank you Stacy for this sample!
I love TGYs and of course, this one was delicious. Very green and floral with that sweet buttery note. I am getting very subtle fruity notes as well. This might be in an order one of these days….I have just recently placed 2 fairly large orders with Butiki and I am already thinking about the next one…sheesh!

Thank you Stacy for this sample!
I definitely would not have picked this to try myself, but I need to try new things sometimes. For some reason, I just cannot get into straight greens. Which is weird because I love oolongs, even green ones. Anyway….

About this tea! This is a wonderful tea, smooth vegetal green peas with a tiny hint of some fruitiness. Really good green tea!
I am glad I got to try it.

Thank you Stacy for this sample! This is a very interesting tea. So different than anything I have had before. I am not really a fan of ale, but was looking forward to this sample. I did add a few pieces of rock sugar per the sample package recommendations.
Upon first sip, I am definitely getting notes of rhubarb and very light, but smooth vanilla. The ale taste comes into the picture a little later and in the aftertaste. I did enjoy this cup, but I am not sure yet if I would order it or not

Sounds intriguing!

Western brewed this today at boiling, with a quick rinse first. 1 minute steep, resteep for 2.
I am definitely getting vanilla and honey notes as well as a little floral. Just what I needed today!

New verdant teas are on their way thanks to Black Friday sales!

I Steeped 4 pearls this morning in boiling water for 2 minutes. It was nice and malty, smooth, light cocoa notes.
I think next time, I might try 5 pearls and see if it brings out more cocoa notes. Has anyone noticed a difference between 4 and 5 pearls?

drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA

I had this with a little steamed vanilla almond milk. It was nutty and so comforting on a cold winter evening!
Steeped with boiling water for 7 minutes

CelebriTEA

Mmm… Can you really taste the mulberry in this?
I loved eating mulberries as a kid :-)

tigress_al

Not really, because this tea is made up of the leaves, not the berries. It is more nutty and earthy

CelebriTEA

Thanks :-)

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.
