drank Canadian Dream | Maple Tea by Tealux
8570 tasting notes

Another sample from evol ving ness this is absolutely a maple tea. And funnily enough, while i adore maple added to my smokey teas – this is too sweet for me :) the maple is a tiny bit artificial but it still embodies the whole idea of maple tea :) recommend this for anyone who likes maple and sweet teas :)

Evol Ving Ness

Maybe this is the one that needs to be added to a less-than-stellar Lapsang Souchong then?

Sil

ooh there’s an idea!

Sample from Evol Ving Ness This is not so much carrot cake for me. Instead it’s like a carrot cake spice genmaicha. Spicey in the sense of having all the various spices that go in to carrot cake versus hot/spicey. I don’t really feel “carrot cake”. It’s a decent enough cup, so i’m enjoying it. but it’s not quite carrot cake. thanks evol!

pulled this one out while i was going through my cupboard. I haven’t had it in a really long time. I think this has aged a bit bitter but there’s still an underlying taste of what i think omgsrsly refers to as “dirt”. It’s malty and there’s a little chocolatey taste to this, but the “dirt” detracts from it. poop :(

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. Dirt chocolate tea. :D I definitely did not like this one. It’s too bad it hasn’t aged well for you.

drank Honey Black by DAVIDsTEA

Sample from omgsrsly I thought i’d tried this one from David’s before but it appears not. Brewed this one up today since i’m trying my best to get through a couple samples today while i work from home. This is relatively decent. there’s a sweetness here. It reminds me a little of a lesser version of some of the teas from TTC. I’d drink this one again :) thanks omgsrsly!

drank Vanilla Citrus Herbal by 3 Teas
8570 tasting notes

Picked this one up at the Toronto tea festival this past weekend and i’m happy that i did. As Kittenna pointed out, i have an obsession with all teas that are creamsicle like in nature. I have to say that this one is pretty decent. As a herbal, it’s nice to drink something that isn’t all about being “berry like” (al la red berry variety) while there is a citrus component to it, it just enhances the orange flavour. The vanilla brings out a little of the sweetness and turns it in to a creamy delight. My only complaint is that i wish it was a little more intense. That aside, super happy i decided to try this based on the smell and that it didn’t disappoint. Of course, now i wish i’d picked up more! haha

Hmmm. I didn’t love the smell of this one for some reason. I wonder if the scent sample had aired out too much

Sil

OMG with all the samples in my cupboard I really need to get my drink on. I finished this one off today for a good tea to get back in to work with. I was on training for the last 2 days of work so it feels like i’ve been gone forever. Sad to see this one go but also a little happy for the sipdown haha

drank Rooibos Masala Chai by Chaiwala
8570 tasting notes

I had the black tea version of this one at the tea festival and loved it. So i figured i might as well also try the rooibos blend for late night chai. Made a batch of it this evening to try it out and it was delicious. Lacking a little bit in the depth behind the spices compared to the black one, but still exactly what i wanted. :)

drank Turmeric Glow by DAVIDsTEA
8570 tasting notes

tried this one at the tea festival today. It’s not bad but i wanted more ginger and a little less sweet. One of the other vendors has something similar and it was not only less expensive than david’s but tastier lol. So not one i need to get but it wasn’t terribad.

Pulled this one out for a visit since i’m packing up teas for friends. Getting close to the end of it and it’s a little less than it used to be but it’s still enough of what it should be to make me happy. :)

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.
