5919 Tasting Notes

drank Margaret's Hope by Ronnefeldt Tea
5919 tasting notes

trying to get to my samples today since there’s a package at the post office that could be one of two things – both with a number of teas. :) This one was from courtney and is not a bad cup for this morning. There’s a bit of astringency in the cup, which i don’t mind at all in this particular case. This continues to reaffirm my opinion that ronnefeldt teas are sort of middle ground for me, so totally doable at a reasonable price point, but not something i MUST HAVE. so thanks for the wide range of teas from them to try courtney!

drank Raspberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5919 tasting notes

This is a distinctive level matcha. It appears that raspberry just isn’t a doable flavour for me when it comes to redleaf. There’s an underlying artificial presence to the raspberry that i can’t get past. It’s not there for strawberry or some of the other berry flavours but with raspberry, it’s all i focus on. Oh well, lots of other flavours i love from Redleaf!

mini sipdown of this as i finally finished the package that I picked up last july and can start on my most recent order of this tea :) It’s nice to be able to cross another July tea off my list, but not as exciting to be finishing off more of this tea since i like it so much haha

Courtney

I can’t live without this one. Even the 2 weeks I went without it was detrimental to my health.

Terri HarpLady

I still have some of this one, for awhile now. It’s nice, but doesn’t wow me like it seems to wow so many others.

Sil

I find some days I love it the most, other days I prefer TTC’s versions…I bounce back and forth :)

Terri HarpLady

We’re fickle like that, aren’t we :)

thank you ysaurella for this lovely vanilla tea! It might just be one of my favourites now after having had it. Seriously…wish i could say more but this was just delicious and perfectly what i wanted tonight.

Final Count: 148 (but there’s something at the post office…waiting….for tomorrow)

ashmanra

drank Jamaïque by Mariage Frères
5919 tasting notes

i had a cup of this tonight to try and relax and enjoy something new. Sadly i was distracted and didn’t pay enough attention to this one from Ysaurella what i do remember is being pleasantly surprised by it as i didn’t bother reading to find out what sort of tea it was. tasty for sure! thankfully i have a bit more of this from my lovely french swapping partner to try it again!

Ysaurella

ah yes you should give another try, be careful with the steeping time…not above 2 minutes :)

Sil

yes! i saw your note :) it was a lovely tea, i jsut didn’t pay as much attention to it as i meant to :)

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

another one whose ratings i likely need to bump up since i keep coming back to it… perfect for this morning’s angsty, grumpy, cranky start :)

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

some days…there’s not enough time in the world to write reviews. After being woken up last night in the middle of the night for work and then spending most of today troubleshooting other things in prep for release weekend..i am going crazy. Thankfully..there are always teas like this!

Terri HarpLady

Thankfully!

drank Golden Monkey Black Tea by Teavivre
5919 tasting notes

SOMETIMES….though it doesn’t happen often with me…i forget that i have a particular tea in my cupboard. This one sort of got lost (in plain sight) and i hadn’t had it in a while…so the other day i put it in a REALLY obviously place to remember to drink it more often. And today, i was glad for it :) i still really like the taste of this one. happy i picked some up in a sale from teavivre a while back.

also..since i’m guessing there will be little to no tea drinking this evening having just had uh..a VERY large glass of coke and toasted caramel rye…

Final Count: 149 (merci Ysaurella!)

Did I hear a big fat burp at the end of this note???

this one keeps me happy. Since i have no hope in heck of being at 150 for the end of this month (unless i get nothing in the mail before i leave…) courtesy of a great swap from mademoiselle Ysaurella.

Instead, i’ve decided to shift focus to drinking some of my older teas to make a dent in those ones so that eventually I’ll have bags and bags of almost sipdowns! riiiight…? :)

Still enjoying this tea..even if it is a tricky ever changing tea for me from one day to the next lol

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
5919 tasting notes

Man i love this tea… just the right balance of spicy and sweet and delicious! Though i have half a mind to try mixing this up with the lapacho just to see how more orange in this one tastes. but i’m lazy…so likely not haha.

Final Count: 136 – now to see if i can get 6 more in before FLORIDA! (if so, then even with orders being added to my cupboard in march from florida, i’ll be at 150…so totally at my goal!)

Edit…hey look at that 3600 notes… Lol

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec
TheTeaFairy

Can,t believe you’re down to 136!!!

How’s your bladder doing??

Sil

Haha it’s fine….lazy thing. I don’t have any more easy sipdowns though, so the next 6 will be harder unless I convince myself to drink the last few matcha samples I have

VariaTEA

Congrats on both 136 teas and 3600 tasting notes! I think you will definitely catch up to me soon (however, your orders might put you back up again). I will just have to go tea shopping in the future.

Sil

Right now….my orders will bring me up to 156. However that does not take in to account the swap incoming from ysaurella, the Canadian tea box or the BBB Box from Terri and tasty brew.

Cavocorax

Oh, NBD. How many teas/day do you log? :P

Cavocorax

(congrats)

Sil

Haha no idea cavo…I just pour and drink…until I don’t wanna!

Terri HarpLady

Wow, and Wow again! ;)

keychange

You’re just on fire there!

Dinosara

Woah, how’d you get so close to me in your cupboard number?? I’ve been sitting at 120 lately. At least I can depend on you to bring it back up soon! ;D

Sil

Dinosara – you got it, there are already 20 teas on their way to me hahaha

Terri HarpLady

and if I ever get my act together, there will be another 50 or so headed your way…hahahahahah

Sil

Lol crap crap crap crap…

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.
