Sipdown!

I have had this sample from Cavocorax for months now. It got lost amongst my ever-growing stash. Though today I found it and brewed it up. It is quite lovely. Soft and creamy coconutty vanilla goodness. My cup was underleafed and old and it is still good so I imagine this tea fresh is probably pretty awesome. Thank you Cavo for the share!!

drank Night In Rio by T by Daniel
71 tasting notes

This tea is so fun! Like a taste of summer in a cup. I picked this up from the Toronto Tea Festival this past January, where I got to meet Daniel in person (he’s incredibly nice and just as charismatic and enthusiastic as his website/social media outlets suggest). He helped me pick out several blends to take home, and the instant I sampled this one I knew I had to have it. The taste is heavy on the pineapple, just the way I like it. I can’t wait to try it iced.

Flavors: Pineapple

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Caramel Popcorn by T by Daniel
1695 tasting notes

Hot, this does really well in a travel mug! I had it in a regular mug awhile back and it was just ok.
No need to add sugar. I wanted to experiment and with a dollop of milk it just gets more buttery. Damn. If the remaining cups are like this I may consider grabbing more one day

Also today was a very long day. I was in the office before 7am. We had a work event. But because there was maybe a third of the people around, the place was cold. I spent most of my day drinking coffee and tea in a lame attempt to stay warm. It didn’t work very well. I’m still cold. Brrrr.

Anyhow. I’m feeling pretty antisocial. The introvert in me is hissing at everyone for no reason

I’ve been cold for close to 24 hours now. My feet are like ice despite the heat on high and being covered by a throw.

Indigobloom

yup. I’m still cold. Under two blankets and warm jammies. Getting there…

Hot, this is delish!! A strong but not overpowering note of fresh tart strawberries dominates the sip, with a background of crisp sencha green. I quite like it.
Unfortunately, as it cools the strawberry becomes more candylike, and the green tea becomes floralish. I’m also getting a strong note of umami, which isn’t something I’m generally very sensitive to in greens, atleast not lately. Today? it comes across as fishy, and really lingers in the nose.
I’ll have no problem finishing the sample. I’m glad I had the chance to try this!

drank Watch that Mango by T by Daniel

A nice fruity green!
Generically fruity. I certainly wouldn’t pick out mango. If I didn’t know better, I’d have said peach.
The balance of green tea vs fruitiness is perfect so on that front I’m satisfied. Unfortunately, I suspect that the flavour will fade quickly, so here’s hoping I can kick my tea hoarding ways :P

drank Chai Noir by T by Daniel

I had this the other day at work. It kinda hit the spot, but I was in the mood for something sweet. Now that I know to expect a different kinda chai… Still not one for replacing though

drank Chai Noir by T by Daniel

I loved the scent of this one. Brewed? not so much. Something in there is cloying and a bit artificial. There are a few “candied” items. Nuts and such. So it could be any of those. And perhaps the fennel? I can’t be sure.
My mug was satisfying to a point, but missing a certain depth that I’ve come to expect in chai. Milk was necessary, but no sugar was added since it was already a bit too sweet on its own.

Tea festival this weekend was great. So much fun catching up with all the teaps! I was on a serious high until last night when I heard about the Quebec shooting. That just brought me back to reality. Then today I heard about a shooting right around the corner from my work. Literally. I mean, its the nearest intersection to the building. I cross there all the time. Lucky I was at home on my day off. So yeah. Sadness :(

Seems to be happening a lot lately. Makes you wonder what the world is coming to.

Indigobloom

@mrmopar, it really does. Violence is never the answer, even my boyfriend who was a judo sensei for 20 years could tell you that. I just don’t get it

Indigobloom

@Evol yup. I second your :(

I got a sample of CITYYZ and wished I had gotten more to get a real feel for this tea. The flavor seemed quite subtle. I believe it would’ve been yummy as a latte.

I received a sample of this from a teapal and, to my surprise, it’s right up my alley. I usually avoid pineapple blends because the pineapple flavor tends to be really cloying and/or it doesn’t mix well with the other ingredients. That is not the case with this blend. I’m so glad it’s an herbal that’s predominantly fruit. The pineapple really shines, and the flavor reminds me of freshly juiced ripe pineapple. It’s sweet but slightly tart, and the pineapple blends really well with the mango and papaya. It’s like a tropical fruit juice blend in tea form. I’ve been eyeing T by Daniel for awhile, and this sample might just prompt an order. I can see myself enjoying a lot of this tea (mixed with other teas or alone) over the summer.

I met him at the tea festival at the end of January. Quite a character! And a promising entrepreneur. The sample teas were good too.

apieceofquiche

Neat! We need tea festivals down south. That sounds like such fun. Yeah, he looks like quite a happy chap. :)

this might end up being the fastest i’ve ever drunk through a white blend. Something about this one is just downright spot on – everything i could want in a creamy, vanilla, coconut tea.

Picked this one up at the toronto tea festival without trying it, based solely on the smell of the dry leaves – vanilla and coconut. So glad i took this chance. so good. I am a fan of this one, as long as i can finish it up before the coconut goes rancid. it’s smooth, creamy and there’s a good balance of vanilla and coonut – neither one truly overpowering the other. for a white tea, i’m happy with this one :)
