drank Sinharaja by Golden Moon Tea
729 tasting notes

Is it time to go home yet. Struggling to stay focused at work. I’ve been pouring tea/caffeine in all day – I think I’m on cup 9 – and I’m still just falling asleep. 1 1/4 hours to go.

This is the other tea I’ve been drinking all day. I’ve been wanting to explore Golden Moon Teas for quite awhile and haven’t really had a chance (they either don’t ship to Canada or charge crazy shipping – one or the other). I was really excited to see a few in the awesome package ifjuly sent me.
I’ve decided to try first the Golden Moon that I think I’ll like least. I’m not usually a fan of ceylon. This isn’t going to be my favorite black tea, it’s to astringent/dry for me. What I have learned is that I am REALLY excited to try the other ones. If Golden Moon has a ceylon that I don’t hate, then how good are the ones the ones that are more in my comfort zone going to be? Really excited to try them. Thanks ifjuly for the opportunity.

THIS is Ceylon? This is one of my favorite teas but Ceylon is my least favorite black tea! Definitely my favorite Ceylon then.

That what the description says: “For Sinharaja we use rich, dark loose leaf tea leaves that are nourished by fertile rain forest streams in the hills of Ceylon.”
I’m just really excited to try more Golden Moon Teas, I didn’t hate this and I don’t usually do well with ceylon either. I think I’m going to really like some of the other ones….

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
