1184 Tasting Notes


Mmmm this tea was so good, vanilla and slight chocolate notes that feel like a warm hug in my mouth!
Sipdown today, but I think they are having a cyber Monday sale…

Of course, I love this tea, (especially as a latte) so I just had to pick up a bag!
So glad that I did because it is delicious!

No one else has reviewed this tea? How is that possible? I guess I am the only white tea freak out there — “must try all the white teas!”


Hot, this one is just kinda weird, but cold brewed is a different story, refreshing and delicious!


I wonder if they came out with it after the last time I ordered (which was years ago)? Because this is certainly something I would try!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tea and tried to get at least 1 resteep (western style) every time I drank it. I would definitely order this tea again!

Definitely fruit cake comes to mind with this tea!
That’s all I remember as I drank this last week!
Sorry, terrible review

This was a pretty good—-I should have wrote about it last week when I drank it!
The strawberry was not quite. Atrial tasting, more like a candy strawberry. I still very much enjoyed it and would probably try it cold brewed next time as mint and strawberry would be very refreshing. The base was a little astringent but not too bad.

Sample from the Canadian Traveling Tea Box

I didn’t realize that I had tried this one already until I had already brewed it up! I really enjoy this tea. It is slightly cocoa notes with some sweetness (probably the honeybush), and some earthiness from the pu’erh. I would likely have this tea on the list if I ordered from this shop.

drank Butterbeer by 52teas

Thanks Shezza for including this in the Canadian Traveling Tea Box!

I had tried this tea years ago and was very happy to try it again today. It tasted more like root beer this time than I remember—I thought it was kind of a deeper, more “caramel” like flavour before. Who knows though, it was years ago!
Either way, I still really enjoyed this tea!


I remember it being like a caramelly rootbeer flavour. The first time it came out it was nice and creamy. The second batch was a little less creamy.

drank Passage by August Uncommon Tea

Mmmm, this was so good. The chocolate wasn’t that each kind of chocolate, it was more the darker chocolate that I enjoy. It was sweet enough that I didn’t have to add any sweetener (which I don’t like to add anyway).
Nutty, chocolate tea…how can you go wrong?
If I ever order from this company, this tea would certainly be on that list!
Thanks to whoever added this to the Canadian Travelling Tea Box!

drank Mango by Granville Island Tea Co
1184 tasting notes

The fluffy white bits in this tea were a bit odd, and I am not sure if I tasted them or not. I am glad that I had used a tea bag though because they made a mess.
I cold brewed this overnight.
It was really refreshing and just a little sweet but not overwhelming. The mango was fairly natural tasting. This was a pretty good one!

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.
