drank Summer Delight by Kaleisia Tea
200 tasting notes

Tea Tasting Day (1/8)

So my local tea shop, Kaleisia, is doing a tea tasting, and I just had to attend, since it’s the “last one ever”. I knew, going into this, that most of the teas were pre-sweetened, and you’ll hear me complain about this. But, I try my best to discern the flavor and give the teas an appropriate rating. Also, unless otherwise stated, these teas are ICED.

First up was their limited blend – Summer Delight. It has a lot of different flavors and fruits in it, but I’m really tasting the peach flavor most of all. Not getting much for tangerines or strawberries. It’s … okay. Your generic black fruit tea that doesn’t taste much like tea. Although I think the sweetener really cancels this out, though.

Also, this is NOT what the tea actually looks like. But it’s a limited edition and I couldn’t find it on their site, so I just found a comparable picture.

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.ⁿ

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I’ll drink herbals if I’m feeling a little under the weather. And recently I’ve been getting more into young shengs (also chasing that elusive “cha qi”).

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. I’ve been doing gongfu mostly these days, so I use a ceramic gaiwan with an electric kettle. For greens and some oolongs, I’ll do a western style with a glass mug or regular infuser. I try to specify if my brewing parameters are outside the norm.

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!

ⁿ – Note: I did step away from tea for a while.. again. But now I’m back for REALZ. Usually I have to put this interest on hold when real life takes over, so I’m hoping for no major life events these days.
