drank Random Steepings by Various Artists
4923 tasting notes

working from home today which hopefully will allow me to try some of the last few unlogged teas in my cupboard. Why am i doing this? so that i can send the other half of my samples off to terri! Not to mention getting a few steps closer to 150. Drinking this one puts me at 198. What am i drinking? Another tea from the verdant reserve samples from rewards – this one is a haixin tang 2007 stone-pressed sheng. Since i have no clue what i’m doing with this – lack of directions is my only annoyance with verdant’s teas, i’m trying to do a few steeps of this at random intervals. heh. I’m sure terri will do a much better job of this for me. This smells earth and delicious, though that may just be a factor of the tea mixing with the rain that we have happening here in toronto :)

this has got an earthy, slightly smoky? taste to it. It will be interesting to see how the steepings change this morning in between some other teas i want to try heh.

Subsequent resteeps of this = pretty decent puerh and not so bad for what i think? is my first sheng? maybe? lol what can i say? i’m at the start of my puerh journey :)

Yeah I need to finish your box this morning so I can take it to the post office this afternoon. It means I have to finally open the packages of the blacks “we” bought. I’d kept them all sealed for maximum freshness lol

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.
