1137 Tasting Notes

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

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.

Thank you for the sample Sil!

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….

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)

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!

I really enjoyed this rooibos. I used the whole sample in my giant bird mug. It was a cold rainy evening and it spruced up my mood!

It isn’t too sweet which is what happens sometimes with maple flavoured teas IMO. I didn’t get much vanilla but I did detect notes of cinnamon. I would consider ordering this in the fall (if it is available again!)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

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.
