812 Tasting Notes

I am with a few other people on here who say that the base is a little too strong in this one. I found it a little bitter, but that might have been a brewing error. I will have to try it at 2 minutes to see if this is the case or not. I guess I should also try this iced, since it is a spring tea.
In other words, I am not that big of a fan.

I braved my grumpy baby today because I needed to get out of the house, I was going crazy. It is finally warming up here in Saskatchewan, so I am stir crazy to finally get out and about!
Anyway….this tea…..I thought it was delicious, I didn’t taste any alcohol like others have mentioned. The creamy vanilla was the most prominent note for sure. The peach doesn’t taste quite as natural as I would like, but it is decent.
I put some of this in the fridge to chill for tomorrow, so I will update tomorrow.

I agree with Kittenna that it’s great to have a herbal offering that isn’t mint, chamomile, hibiscus, or licorice!

UPDATE: I don’t like this iced. I think it tastes super articial this way.

Shared a pot of this with the in laws this morning before brunch and it was a lovely tropical cuppa. I mostly got passion fruit today. The flavour really depends on the chunks of fruit in the spoonful, because the chunks are fairly large. I still really enjoy this one, even though it is finicky. I got it right today though!

This cuppa today was different than any other cup of this tea that I have enjoyed. Today, grape/raisin notes were very prevalent with the jasmine very much in the background. Interesting, I enjoyed it, but was not expecting it at all.

Tea smoothie time again! So good in a tea smoothie, and sweet enough to not need added sweetener.
I am trying to lose my baby weight, so I have joined weight watchers. So all, my tea friends, be ready to see lots of reviews for tea in tea smoothies.

Preparation
Iced

I compared this tea yesterday to the grade 1 version of Keemun.
I find this tea to be maltier (if that’s even a word) and smoother than the grade 1 version. I think it is a little bit less sweet. I do get more notes of the peppercorn.

Hmmm, I am not sure which one I like better because I like each one for a little different reasons.

I sipped this down yesterday as a comparison to the premium keemun to determine which one I would like to stock in my cupboard. Needless to say, it didn’t go according to plan because I like them both for different reasons. I drank them side by side.

In my opinion, this one is a bit fruitier, with more prominent cocoa notes. It is maybe a little bit sweeter than the premium version, but not quite as smooth. It is definitely great for everyday drinking.

This is a sample sipdown. Today, it seems a little bit less sweet. I getting some mushroom, earthy notes. Maybe I have been hoarding it for too long. I am so guilty of hoarding oolongs forever.
I am glad that I purchased this sample.

Finally sipping down this tea from last September.
I found that you definitely have to steep this herbal for a long time to get real flavour. I am not too sad that it’s gone, but it was ok. Not bad for a banana tea.

Flavors: Dates

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

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.
