5079 tasting notes

I decided to celebrate Stacy launching her custom tea section, with another couple of cups of my tea. it’s ben a while since i’d had any for myself, instead i’ve been sending a lot of it out in swamps for others to enjoy and get a taste of what stacy can do. This was for sure a hard taste to capture, which is why i think a lot of strawberry rhubarb teas fall flat for me. Not the case here – plus it’s a black base! YAY! Once i pick up some of the final version i’ll start rating it in stacy’s other entry but for now..i’ve got this one..and probably still uh 3oz left of it or something silly like that heh

Custom teas? That sounds awesome. When is it launching?

Sil

heh i’m misleading you grace, apologies. I’m so very tired tonight. Stacy has added my tea as well as sasha’s to the website, but in the description she’s shared a link to the stories of how each tea came to be. Basically she’s started putting up some of the blends that have been inspired by customers. :) this one and thanks for the licorice is up as of today! So you can stop hoarding now lol

graceatblb

Same here. Today was a migraine sleep day so I’m pretty out of it too. So I probably read that quite wrong in my medicated haze :)

But yay! I am going to have to break my buying hiatus to buy both of those teas, aren’t I?

Sil

lol we just placed a shared butiki order this month and i’m already considering picking up mine, the licorice chai, the banana walnut, the new assam and possibly 1-3 of the new darjeelings going up tomorrow lol

Sil

oh and it was my dad’s birthday yesterday and he informed me that of all the black teas that i gave him at christmas, the taiwanese assam from stacy is his favourite…so i likely need to pick up 4oz of that for dad or something lol

graceatblb

Darjeelings? Oh doodles. I also need more of the Irish Breakfast tea. And the Taiwanese Assam. And Grandpa’s Anytime Tea. And I have to try the Japanese Pu’erh. It’s going to be a big order. My credit card is going to beg for mercy.

Sil

at least it’s shipping to the us for you…though in this case i might make an exception and send mine via my tea mule since it’s been a while lol

Well, looks as if Steepster started hating me before the crankiness turned general, as it seems to have eaten the comment I posted earlier! Admittedly it was just an admission that I’d read the whole Butiki post about the competition (and winner!) without realising it was you, Sil. But still. Well done! :)

Sil

haha NP. in my other life i’m a spy. hiding in plain sight from everyone

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.
