8269 Tasting Notes


smokey tea sample from angel this is a really nicely done smokey tea. It’s not overpowering and this smoke is quite nice. As always, i added just a tiny splash of maple syrup and this was delightful.

sample from christina that i’m finally getting around to trying. I am a fan of this one, it’s a little different but on the whole the taste is light, refreshing and if there are any sort of health benefits, then extra yay! :)


I have a whole bag of this and have yet to try it. A guy smuggled some seeds into the country and grew it and sent some to me and I really need to try it!


it’s different from your usual but still a tasty cup imo.

Still drinking this one. Only a few more days in the year where i’ll actually have a chance to drink tea so enjoying some of my older teas today. Pretty sure 2015 was just not my favourite year for tea OR wine haha. not sure about the tea front for 2016 is supposed to be a great year for wine!

this was a free sample that i picked up from AU and honestly, no matter who i steep it, i might as well just be drinking a chamomile tea. There’s no sense of any other flavours coming through on this – and there’s just a whole lot of chamomile and more chamomile.

Final Count: 61

Finished this one today as well – just trying to get through some sipdowns so that i’m at least close to my goal. haha. This one just doesn’t seem to work for me as it’s intended. all i get are the smokey notes, not matter how much i play with the leaf and steeping times. It’s a REALLY nice smokey tea, with a little maple but the other flavours are absent for me, making this one a miss.

dexter sent this one my way and i’ve had it a couple times now. I’ve come to the conclusion that this one isn’t for me. It’s a lovely moonlight tea, but it’s not strong enough for me. Light hay taste even though longer steeps and subsequent steepings. thank you so much for letting me try this one dex!

Not feeling this one today. I think i steeped it too long as there’s a bitterness i don’t love. Ah well, will have to make sure i do a shorter steep next time. Still love the smell though and i know i’ll enjoy working on finishing this up :)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
