7674 Tasting Notes

Thanks for sharing this one with me variaTEA this is my first chance to try tea from nepali tea traders (i think, unless my tea sister has sent some my way previously) and it was delicious! a very smooth cup, with a bit of maltiness and some sweetness. a little bready but just a great cup of tea to start the morning off. I’d pick up more of this for sure.

drank Black Buds Jin Jun Mei by Verdant Tea

I need to write another tasting note about this one when i can pay attention. I sort of sipped on this throughout the day – gonfu style but never really had a chance to just sit and focus on it. I do remember being pleasantly surprised at the initial cup of this one, as it wasn’t quite what i was expecting. looking forward to trying this again with more intent and focus.

drank Smoked Maple Banana by Butiki Teas

Another one from VariaTEA this round is a little more smokey and a little less banana than when it was originally blended, potentially due to it’s age. that being said, still a great cup this morning and really nice to revisit butiki. I really miss Stacy’s blends.

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

variaTEA gave me a bag of delights the other day and i’m just now getting time to log them and start in one them. I was 5 away on my sipdown goal for June, but i for sure made my weight goal…still need to weigh things, but 99% certain i made that goal. Ian and i haven’t had any down time in a while so this morning was a lazy wake up followed by breakfast together and some puppy cuddles and playtime. i picked THIS tea to see if i was still in love with it…and i am. i seriously need this to come back so i can restock. this might just be my favourite David’s tea ever…. scary. thanks so much variatea! now to decide whether to drink it all up or horde it lol

Why is it scary? It’s one of my favourites from them too.

i don’t often like david’s teas enough to want to keep them around… this is the first that i think i could probably have 500g of and not get sick of it… wish we could get more.

yep this is delicious for me at 3 mins. Recommended 5+ mins is just too strong a cup for me.

Sakura Sushi

One of my most favorite breakfast teas!

All gone! Not going to make my sipdown goal this month (i’m about 5 off) but my weight goal was achieved so i really can’t complain…PLUS i bought a bunch of teas, so not surprising that i didn’t make my number goal.

Kristal

Good for you regardless! progress is progress ;)

Sil

thanks! getting there… at least i’m trending down – that’s the important bit.

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.
