A sharp, clear berry scent. This tea seemed a bit too busy for my liking. Too many flavours competing for the spotlight made this tea confusing to the palate. A bright, acidic berry taste and chocolaty backnotes with a lingering dark green vegetable note. This tea was much better sweetened, cutting out the sharpness of the acidic berries.

Are these sipdowns you are counting? Or teas drank?

Both! 21 teas logged so far, 479 out of my first 500 goal to go! I have just over 100 in my journal, it’s just a matter of getting them posted on Steepster!

Bio

Growing up in an Irish family, tea was a staple. A huge, wide mug with lots of milk and sugar. Still to this day I find complete comfort in a nice cuppa Irish tea. But nowadays I have come to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that goes into tea. I had my first cup of loose leaf Japanese green tea when I was 16 at a pretty fancy (and expensive) Japanese restaurant. After the first sip, I fell in love.

Since then, I’ve been slowly collecting different teas, some of which have been lost to friends, family and ex’s. But I still seem to stock up.

So because of this love and appreciation, I’ve decided to set myself a tea tasting goal! 1000 different teas by my 25th birthday January 12th, 2015. With the help of samples from various tea shops, a tea journal, Steepster account, Tumblr blog and a few tea parties (with tea alcohol and food of course) I plan on accomplishing this goal! You can see my progress on my Steepster account! Cheers and lets get this caffeine induced coma going!

Buying tea can be expensive, I always appreciate samples! :)

Cheers
