1420 tasting notes

Oh the dry leaves smell so good! Orange orange orange, ginger, tea.

Like Sil, I want more. More orange, more ginger. It is pretty good, and I’ll save the lease for more steeps tomorrow.

VariaTEA

I have no idea how this tasted but at least it was palatable so yay!

OMGsrsly

It tasted like puerh. :P

VariaTEA

So definitely not for me.

OMGsrsly

Haha. Nope. I think I will try adding orange peel/cinnamon/ginger to a different puerh tho. See how that goes for me.

OMGsrsly

Second 5 minute steep this morning. Actually pretty nice. More bready than earthy. Still not enough orange or ginger. Drinking it with a huge gob of honey because I am teh sick.

VariaTEA

Oh no. I hope you feel better but I am glad to hear that the second steep was better.

OMGsrsly

Thanks! :) I’m pretending I’m fine for work, but I’m just sitting here on Facebook. Haha. Gotta find the energy to make it through tomorrow, then if I’m not feeling better I’ll take Friday off.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
