6407 Tasting Notes

one of my teas from earlier this morning. I have 3 large bags of teas from TTC that i need to drink up, so i’m trying to weave them in to the rotation during the week. This is still really tasty and juicy but i have to admit i love some of the others just a teeeeeeny bit more. still lovely though!

144 yesterday and now i’m back up to 151…which in a way is cheating a little since there’s only one steepster entry for Wild Monk Sheng and i’ve got 2012 AND 2014 in my cupboard! WOOHOOOOOOOOOO!

um… not focused on anything right now but those cakes… they’re so cute being all like LOOK AT ME! 100 grams of sheeeeer awesomeness! yeah that’s right…excuse me while i go cuddle with them.

sad sad last cup of the evening…though i should say 3 or 4 since i drank a bunch of this. reeeesteep! thanks again to jump62359 for sending this one my way because it’s wonderful. the sort of happy, tasty tea that makes your day better for having been in it. after testing tonight i dug this one out and just sat and enjoyed a few cups of it…relishing the last of it…wishing there was more lol. i am a fan!

Edit: Final Count 144 (+ 22 teas incoming via orders ignoring swaps…maybe i can get to 140 before the weekend!)

…speaking of teas that smell like feet…. jump62359 sent this one my way and i’m thinking it’s the coconut that is turning me off. I had to put this one in a closed tin by itself to keep it away from me lol. But, as it the case with me, i pulled this one out tonight to finally bite the bullet and try it out. Surprisingly enough, this brews up to a nice enough tea. There’s hibiscus in it, which doesn’t bother ME any, but others are all full of hate sometimes for the hibby, hibby shake. lol Anyway, end result is that it’s not something i need to stock in my cupboard, and because of the smell i couldn’t drink it often…but it’s not bad on the whole. Sort of a more summer like fruity cold beverage type tea. :) (that smells like feet!) giggling

thanks jump62359! haha i’m having fun with the adventures of jump62359 tea!

Suziqzer

Smelling like feet might be better than tasting like them… I can’t say from experience.

jump62359

See, I like jasmine so I honestly did not know you weren’t a fan!
But this one though. It was a gift from my mom’s friend and she hated it and just made me take it. Honestly, I took it because it was in a gorgeous tin. But the tea itself? Welp. I’ll just send small batches of it out in packages and things.

Sil, babe, I promise! When I get more //great// tea, I’ll definitely send them your way!

Sil

jump – oh do NOT be worried or anything like that lol i love swaps for this very reason. you get some hits, some misses, and some random weird stories in between. that’s the joy!

First off…thank you Angel for your incredible generosity!

of course i’m now working again and my review is going down the tubes. however let me say that i don’t much enjoy green teas. They’re never on my list of top things to drink. I can buy a green tea and let it sit until it’s no longer fresh and it will take me forever to drink it..

All that aside.. i REALLY enjoyed this one. It was my “i’m going to spoil myself” tea tonight. It’s tasty and you can really get a sense of how fresh this one is in terms of when it was picked. It’s crisp and juicy and full of “life!” I have shared the other samples with my friends hoping that they will enjoy it as much as i did and pick some up from Angel because even a non green loving tea fiend…can get behind this one! thanks so much angel!

Stephanie

This one is crazy good!

Sil

it is!

jump sent this my way….as a practical joke i’m sure….since i do not like jasmine! but i’ll drink everything ppl send me. even smelly toe tea. :) I couldn’t drink much of this because it was REALLY jasmine smelling but the half cup i did drink was pretty decent for a bagged tea. however i was super glad i had my other tea! lol

jump62359

Oh my gosh I’m so sorry! I didn’t know that you didn’t like jasmine!
Ahh well, at least it was just a single sachet. I’ll remember this for next time :)

Sil

hahahaha no no the correct response is: MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA got you sil lol

Suziqzer

even the smelly toe tea…?? You are braver than I.

Sil

EVEN the toe smelling tea… if someone sends it to me, i will attempt to drink at least SOME of it. lol it’s a bit of a game with SOME people lol

Suziqzer

I can see the fun in it :)

Suziqzer

I might be more adventurous than I realize

TheTeaFairy

Sil, you mean tea that tastes like feet???

Sil

Teafairy….yes…yes I did. But I could t remember it until you said it, but I was thinking of you :)

Suziqzer

Hey… It might be fun to have a TTB of smelly/strange teas. Not likely a good idea, but funny to think about.

TheTeaFairy

Oh, that’s really great that stinky feet remind you of me, so fairy like, lol!

Sil

LMAO! it’s because of the tea you sent me teafairy!

Suzi – totally lol “worst teas ever travelling tea box” lol it’s like the time justjames threatened to send me a box of blergamot. bah!

TheTeaFairy

Lol, I know, that’s why I mentioned it, was just pulling your leg…(or foot??)

Suziqzer

Lol.. Great to have good tea friends that can mess with you a little in good fun!

Sil

TOES!

TheTeaFairy

Yes suziqzer, it’s all about having fun :-) about your comment, I did a swap a couple of months ago about strange and unusual tasting teas!! Lots of fun… But it did challenge my taste buds, lol.

Suziqzer

I think it would be fun/interesting, but challenging like you said. I would probably be slow going through a bunch of teas like that… and something that tasted like stinky toes… Yikes! Did you spit it out??

Angrboda

That’s my approach as well. If someone sends me something with a known dislike in it, I’ll still try it so I can attempt to write about it. Sometimes I even get surprised!

Sil

angrboda – YEs! it’s fun!

oopsy..had this logged under the wrong tea but luckily i found it! this was from terri in the BBB’s most recent trip and i need to keep drinking it! this one was really enjoyable today as i worked on mini things in the morning. I’ve found that teas like this, that are smooth and delicious and not quite bold and malty enough to make me focus on them, let me get lots of work done. I think i like the one from the other day just a touch more, but this was still really enjoyable! thanks terri!

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.
