drank Sweet Caramel o'Mine by 52teas

doubled the leaf on this today and i’m getting a little stronger caramel taste to this one. Still not a huge fan of this one, since it’s so subdued in terms of the flavour for me. A decent cup, but nothing out of this world.

Sample from Christina i figured i’d try this one out today. I’m only a few steeps in on this but the general feeling i’m getting from this one is that it’s a decent enough every day puerh. There isn’t a lot of complexity to this one, but it’s a solid shu. slightly earth, smooth, tasty.

pulled this one out of the sample pile this morning – need to work on getting through those samples down so that i can get back to working on older teas. This is another from dex – a non smokey lapsang. This has a fruity taste to it, with some hidden almost choca-y notes in the background. , I quite like this one. :) thanks dex!

drank Mt Kenya Black by Justea

figured this one out today. 2 mins steep with a little cooler water than boiling. the result is a great cup of tea for the morning, strong enough to get you going without being overly astringent and too much. thanks dex!

only enough for maybe one more cup of this and then it’s gone forever. SUCH a delicious tea…i’m going to be so sad when this one is done.

terri sent this one my way and i thought i’d try that out today. I have to say i’m not getting anything very nuanced here. Gonfu with this one and it’s just sort of like an every day black tea for me. no hints of lychee or fruit…just a smooth, lighter sort of tea. oh well, happy to try new things!

drank Keemun Imperial Black Tea by Teavivre
7963 tasting notes

This is a sample from Angel who is always super generous with her samples. I haven’t had this keemun before so it was great to try it out. this has no smoke and is a light brew. there’s some astringency here but it’s still a good cup of tea. I prefer the keemun snail aromatic but this was an interesting experience.

delicious! always a fan of the offerings from yunnan sourcing. Looking forward to my order coming from them, though a little worried about the weight inbound heh. noms.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
