538 Tasting Notes


A nice cup of earl grey to chase away the desire for hot cocoa. My last cup of tea I had at my fiancee’s house. It might be my last cup of tea for a little bit because mom and dad are re-modeling the kitchen. I might be able to sneak in some green tea or white tea later tonight if I can get to the hot water kettle safely.


thy needest a kettle in thine own room! :D


Oh yeah! I agree with that.

My fiancee made this and let me take a few sips of it because I wanted to try it. It confused me because it smelled like a normal pu-erh (dusty and full of damp earth) but when I tried it I tasted flowers. It was light and smooth and floral. It felt like it was a contradiction to my senses. I think I like the chocolate pu-erh better.

The vanilla in this is still too weak for my liking. A nice black tea even though it is a little on the weak side. The vanilla gets more brought out if you have peppermint beforehand. Just wish the vanilla was a little stronger.

I really should know better than to try a delicate new tea at my fiancee’s house when he really doesn’t have a good way to warm up water. This is why I normally stay with black teas at his house.

It didn’t taste like much. Just water with a light splash of rose. I don’t want to discount this tea because I think it will taste better if I could brew it right. Next time it pops up in the assortment, I am taking it home and brewing it where I know I can get the water temperature a little lower.

I’ve been at my fiancee’s house this weekend and I’ve been drinking his tea. Luckily he doesn’t mind too badly and he keeps a box of Aged Earl Grey at his house just in case I show up and want tea.

I decided that I wanted to try something different and this was the tea I picked. I have been wanting bold teas and I decided to take a risk with this chai. It was delicious! Most chais don’t taste like much to me, but with this one it was richly flavored with spice and I could taste the tea underneath.

I’ve been having a hot cocoa problem, but I think I need to find either this chai or a similar chai to get me over that. Just the strength I have been wanting with lots of nice flavor.

Mom brought me home a bag from a restaurant when she went to pick up my little brother from school. Drinking it with milk. Yum.

I need to start kicking my cocoa habit I have developed recently. I have been drinking up to 3-4 cups of cocoa a day. That is way too much for my liking. I think I might have to find some good chocolate teas and ask for a nice big tin for my upcoming birthday (in a few months so I have time to decide).

Back to watching Star Trek TNG with my mom, indulging in my TARDIS mug, and knitting the final bit on my big blanket.

I have decided that my family doesn’t put quite enough sugar in our iced tea. Either that or I need to take my sweet tooth down a few notches. I think we also need to find another tea to make iced tea out of because we keep drinking up mom’s supply in a few short days.

I’m back from my fiancee’s house (and done backlogging). My mom didn’t pour out my leaves from my french press (I’ll have to hug her for that) so I got to make another steep. This is the very last of my sample and I am loving it. I have to be in the mood to taste the chocolate note in this tea. If I’m not in the right mood then it tastes more astringent. It is such a yummy tea though.

My finacee got an assortment pack of Numi and this was one of the first ones he pulled out. He let me have a couple of sips of it to try it, but he kept most of it to himself.

His review: not as strong, tasted weaker and had less of a dirt taste, not much chocolate. Liked Numi Emperor Pu-Erh better.

My review: not as strong with a good splash of chocolate. I can taste a hint of vanilla and that is bringing the chocolate out of the dark chocolate place and closer to a milk chocolate place. Not quite there though. I liked it because it was a little lighter on the earthy taste. I think if you put a little bit of sugar in it, then it would bring out the chocolate for a more dessert tea. I would be more likely to grab this in the morning than a straight pu-erh right now.


I have had the Emperor and Mint Puerh, and only liked the Emperor. The mint one was Bleh for me.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
