Oh Shit! This is Really damn good!
Malty,chocolatey with notes of dried fruit and hay, maybe even some honey notes in there and a slight caramel note comes through after a few steeps. Very smooth and kinda velvety, very delicious, No astringency or bitter at all. Severals very bold strong steeps, it just didn’t seem to want to play out, lost count of how many steeps because I was watching daredevil on Netflix.
A wonderful tea, Perfect for the Dark Matter.
I’m really enjoying this one, Thank You.

Not sure how to describe this one, its interesting and changes for steep to steep, kinda simple but complex too. Some mineral notes, Slight smokey notes, I get notes of bell pepper and umami, almost a savory tea to me, thick like a broth. kinda spicy, kinda floral at times.
Pretty good tea.

Flavors: Bell Pepper, Floral, Mineral, Smoke, Umami

A Good Day so far :)
Got some teas in the mail and Sitting outside with my baby girl listening to Art Bell’s Dark Matter recorded from October 2013 having a good time and I’m getting a new Phone later this evening Yay!!,so yeah a pretty good day.
This one is delicious, roasty and earthy kinda with slight sweetness at the front and a lingering woodsy aftertaste.
It was reminding me slightly of another tea that I couldnt put my finger on(i was thinking da hong pao), not really sure. I didn’t get a mineral note until after I had read the description, then I tasted it and yeah, a mineral kinda rocky note like dhp or something to me.
I didn’t really get the “fruit” note but there still something else that I can’t put my finger on and its almost fruity but kinda nutty too.
This is a super good tea My first tea from What-Cha, I’ve been wanting to try What-Cha for a while now, very glad to have a chance to try this one, I can’t wait till I’m able to place an order from them, This one is on my wishlist now.
My Doggy (Lyra) likes it too, I went inside to get a little more hot water and she jumped up on my little table, drank the rest of my tea and made herself comfy lol https://www.instagram.com/p/BD6VyzGkwFA/

Fruity/nutty like maybe a Nutty Appley note, not sure.

Flavors: Apple, Earth, Fruity, Mineral, Nutty, Wet Rocks, Wood

Really? i haven’t posted about this one yet? Damn, ive bought this one more than once and have drank it many times for good long time now, Lance even liked this one.
Maybe i never posted about it because its kinda hard to really describe to me, thats kinda why i’m here now actually cuz i was thinking hhhmmm well i’ll see what i posted to steepster about it and uuggghh nothing!
Very interesting and delicious tea to me, Everything I’ve had from TTC has been good to me and unique in some sort of way, this one is unique to me one of my favs(i have too many favs, TEA is my fav lol), it is fruity and sweet and kinda roasty and lots more, i really just don’t know how to describe it, it is Delicious!!
I never had a tea like this tea before, i love it.
Had repost, glad i copied it :)

Flavors: Fruity, Sweet

I’ve been there. (not being able to describe certain flavors ect.)

Kirkoneill1988

i cannot really tell the difference between fishy and leather :/

I’ll have to pick this up in my next TTC order. I’ve loved everything I’ve had from them so far.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

no difference between fish and leather? thats kinda scary lol

Kirkoneill1988

@toad i might be able to tell the difference. however, its not too often that i do :( sometimes it is scary

ashmanra

I sometimes have trouble pinning down flavors. Then I feel really bad because I teach a nine year old child who drinks tea with me and nails the description spot on right away. She blows my mind. And knows what she does and doesn’t like. She is a great kid. Hope for the future!

Kirkoneill1988

@ashmanra, you should be proud :D

This one is pretty tasty :)
Roasty and sweet kinda caramel, slight woodsy earthy note and slight mineral taste. nice sweet lingering aftertaste. Very sweet mineraly aroma,i could just sit and sniff on it all day
I like this one.
I didn’t buy this one for myself but I probably would, tho I’ve had better Big Red Robes this one is quite lovely and delicious, I had never even heard of English Tea Leaves shop before but I will check them out, maybe I can get more of this tea one day.
