356 tasting notes

Aha! So my cup was clean when I tried this and it still reminded me of Lapsang Souchong, but in a weird way – and then it hit me: I’m tasting woodsiness! This tea continues to intrigue me. I have enough for one more pot and I’m looking forward to it. It’s one of the most “masculine” teas that I’ve had so far. It’s like one of those rough looking biker dudes that has a teddy bear collection at home. Rugged, yet sweet! NE

I didn’t think “masculine” per se, but I did think of a bunch of aging rockers sitting around and reminiscing!

This was prior to me having Upton’s Baker Street (which would kick this tea’s aging rockers’ tuchusses). I really like your image better :)

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
