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.

i am with you on that one!

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!

drank Bamboo Buddha by Zen Tea

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

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

I enjoyed this one during the week as a cold brew. I think I prefer it this way rather than hot, it doesn’t taste so “syrup-y” if that makes sense.

Yesterday, I had a big mug of this delicious tea. It was malty with some fruity and raisin notes. So good.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

This one was really good, a nice caffeine kick. I mostly get notes of malt, woodsy with just a touch of smoke, and slight fruity notes similar to a Keemun that I had recently (but I can’t remember which one). The astringency is fairly mild.

To order or not to order, that is the question….

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

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.

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

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)

drank Peach Melba by A Quarter to Tea

Thanks for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

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!

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.
