7482 Tasting Notes

Had a giant cup of this after breakfast and it was delicious. I’m really struggling to get out and about today knowing that i don’t get to sleep until sometime sunday evening. I also can’t seem to figure out what i want to do about tea tonight. Do i pack a puerh and just drink that all night long? or should i bring things to share… sooo many choices. I’m still enjoying this tea though i’m not sure i’ll need to restock it once i’m through with this ounce. It’s nice, and tasty but nothing “knocks your socks off” spectacular.

Sil

mmm old one probably?

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Probably. There’s a HUGE difference :-) I couldn’t even bring myself to drink the old version, and the new one is my favorite black tea right now. Next time you order, I definitely recommend restocking. If you decide not to, I’ll throw in a sample :-)

I’m running late today – i have to be down to the office this afternoon and still have a couple errands i need to try and wrap up before i get down there. Not to mention packing up some tea so that i can make a fresh cup or two tonight. While making a very late breakfast (even terri was up before me today!) i pulled out this one. I’ve never been a crazy omg fan of jin jun mei’s. It’s not that i don’t like them, but i’ve never found them to be as amazing as my tea sister or others. That being said, i have had a couple really great ones that i’ve enjoyed. This one is middle of the road for me. I’m really enjoying the almost chocoaltey, sweet notes in this one, which are tempered by a little bit of maltiness. quite an enjoyable tea while making breakfast :) thanks again cameron!

CarmeronB sent this one my way so that i could try it. I’m having a hard time describing this one today…it reminds me of chai…but not all cloves and whatever…but something about this makes me think of warm comforting chai with a splash of honey, steeped in milk, simmering on the stovetop. It’s not an overly bold, strong tea but it is delicious. I quite like this one as well. thanks cameron!

I find it interesting that this reminds you of chai. Need to wishlist this for further perusal. I do have a Yunnan Dian HOng 58 from Whispering Pines, wondering if it would be similar….

Sil

i have no idea why…i was just getting that sort of “echo” of chai feeling while drinking it…was weird lol

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

mmmmm… i always find that this and vanilla citrus spice are similar and yet different enough as to be worthy of both having places in my cupboard. Last cup of the evening today since i need to try to get some sleep since i’ll be up from whenever i wake up tomorrow until likely when i go to bed on sunday evening. thankfully i get tuesday off for rememberance/veteran’s day (or as my friends call it..the make believe day off since i’m the only one who has it off). this is calming and relaxing…just the right thing before bed.

drank Cacao Chai by Traveling Tea

mmm this was particularly delicious tonight. I over leafed this one just a little and ended up steeping it for a little longer than 3 mins. Turned out quite nice and made for a great cup of tea while doing the dishes. I’ve got an over night tomorrow so i’m trying to clean up a bit around the house to help out my other half.

dropping the rating on this one a little because while it’s still delicious and tasty, i’m finding it’s just not a good tea for the travel mug. Not that it’s the teas fault, but i drink 80% of my tea that way, so i like to have options that work well for both travel mugs and my home mugs :)

i am a fan of this tea! So much that i picked up another package of it when i placed my first YS order, even though i have a decent amount in my cupboard at the moment courtesy of my tea sister terri :)

drank Cookie by Lupicia

flavoured tea of the day! I only stepped this one for 2 mins today and it was just the right combination of good delicious cookie like taste and a slightly burnt flavour that i enjoy.

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.
