767 Tasting Notes

90

This is also a sipdown from yesterday. I actually really enjoyed this black iced. It is sweet enough that I don’t need sugar and it has a touch of creaminess.
I might even stock this is the summer if it’s still around.

Iced

drank Prairie Berry by DAVIDsTEA

Unfortunately I finally finished this pouch, so this is a sipdown.
I really enjoyed this even though the oolong was fairly lost among all the flavouring. Considering that this is the only tea I have had with Saskatoons in it, I liked it for that reason for sure. Mmm, makes me think of Saskatoon pie (which is so delicious).

Preparation
2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Butterfly Jasmine by DAVIDsTEA

Sip down today of this lovely jasmine tea. It tastes natural and not perfumey. It is light and not vegetal.
I think I prefer the pearls from Teavivre for my jasmine fix because they are sweeter and smoother

LOL now that i have more tea experience there are definitely nicer jasmine teas out there, but once in awhile i still like the davids one!

drank Guayusa (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

I have been forgetting to log my teas lately :(
I drank this awhile ago. I think this base is too earthy for me. I can drink guayusa but it has to be flavoured I think. I don’t think I would buy more of this unless my tastes change..

drank Perfect Pear by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

This is a sip down from last week but I forgot to log it.
I actually enjoyed this tisane and I think I would even purchase more if they brought it back.
The ingredients seem like an odd pairing, but somehow it works as a cold brewed or iced tea.

Preparation
Iced

This is a sip down today.
I have really grown to love these roasty oolongs. This one in particular has really grown on me since the first time I tried it. I will miss the sweet waffle cone notes.

I resteeped at 2 and 3 minutes.

Slide note: this brings my cupboard down to 200 teas but I haven’t logged my new 52 teas or their best sellers sampler. And I have another Verdant order that should be arriving pretty soon!

Flavors: Flowers, Honey

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

yay for getting to 200! (well sort of) :)

This is a partial sipdown tonight because I am pretty sure there is some of this is the best sellers sampler.
I brewed a very strong latte because there was only a little extra left but not enough for another cup. I really enjoy this strong!

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
767 tasting notes

This will be a short lived sipdown. I was hoarding this pouch but I have an order in the mail, so I finally got up the nerve to drink the rest of it up. I have a bad habit of “saving” my good teas, but I have no idea why. I am worth it, and I should drink special teas whenever I want!

I have found my preferable brewing of this tea to be 1 Tbls of leaf. For the first steep, I boil the water and let it cool for a minute or 2.
Then I resteep with boiling water for 4 and 5 minutes.

Flavors: Cocoa

Preparation
3 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

I’m the same way. I always hear my mom’s voice saying “save the best for last.” :-)

Funny, I did realize the same thing this year and changed my habits. Was saving my good tea, and by the time I was having it, it was stale or not as fresh as it should be. I now have my best teas on a heavy rotation every week. Feels really good :-)

Morgana, that’s what I always think too,
But you are right TeaFairy, I need to drink my best teas all the time,

I enjoyed this white tea. Hay and light floral notes are the most prevalent.

Profile

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.

Saskatchewan, Canada
