1165 Tasting Notes

Thanks for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

I enjoyed this tea as I have been trying to fend off a cold that my kids have. I don’t often reach for ginger when I am healthy. I find that it is enjoyed best with some honey and a couple of slices of lemon!

Sipdown. I have been drinking a lot of tea cold brewed lately as the weather warms up. I enjoyed this as usual!

There was only a tiny bit of this left, so I combined it with some pina colada honeybush (52teas). The resulting cold brew was delicious!!

I am always a sucker for a strawberry black tea. I like that it is good cold or hot!

The black tea base is smooth and a little bit malty, with hints of vanilla. I wish that the strawberry was a little more robust, but a decent tea. I will try it cold brewed next time I think

drank Earl Grey Cream by Zen Tea

Thanks for the sample Evol Ving Ness!
Some days, you just want to reach for something familiar. Yesterday was one of those days as lately I have not been writing many notes. I am still enjoying tea, I just don’t have time to write about it lately!

Earl grey is one of my favourite black teas, and this one in particular is towards the top for me. Today, it was a little less creamy though for some reason. Still a delicious cuppa!

I am not really a fan of spicy things, but hey I like chocolate!
This was just ok for me, it was spicy enough, but the chocolate was too faint. The oolong and black base was a nice combination IMO.

I am happy to have tried it but not likely something I would order.

Thanks for the sample Evol!

For some reason, nothing stood out in this tea for me. The pineapple was really subtle, and there was some sweetness that must have been the marshmallow, but it wasn’t particularly exciting for some reason. Just a little underwhelming I guess. It was still enjoyable, but not likely something I would purchase.

Oh well, I can’t love EVERY tea!

I know I just reviewed this tea yesterday , but I saved the leaves from yesterday and brewed them up this morning. I wanted to resteep yesterday but I ended up out of the house most of the day.

I was surprised to taste this today and find that it was just as good as yesterday. That deserves an increase in rating!

drank Banana Split by A Quarter to Tea

Thanks Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

I really enjoy white tea, and this one was good. I didn’t find that banana was very prevalent which is ok with me because I am not a huge fan of hot banana. I found the most prominent notes to be custard, strawberry and caramel.
I am going to cold brew the leaves as well because I think these flavours will be good cold.

UPDATE: I cold brewed the leftover leaves and the flavouring was mostly absent and it just tastes like cold brewed white tea. I will likely cold brew the rest of the sample.

I don’t mind banana flavor, I just hate the slimy-fibery feel when I eat the fruit…so this sounds pretty tasty to me!


Lol, I love the fruit but I don’t like it hot!

I got this in a fantastic package from Evol Ving Ness! Thank you so much!

Normally, Ceylon isn’t generally my favourite base but pair it with vanilla and it’s delicious! I detect slight cocoa and cherry notes in here too or maybe I am just crazy. The vanilla is smooth and tastes natural.

Capital Teas is now on my list to order from! Thanks Evol…;)

I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
