5925 Tasting Notes

this is a partial sipdown for me since the piece that i finished up this afternoon was from gracebtlb but i have another 2 sessions from terri to get through :) One of those will be going to Cavocorax though, so she can try this one out as part of her puerh AND mandala journey :)

I’m still working my way through this, but so far, this has started out as a woody sort of puerh with some earthiness in the background. As i’ve gone through more of the steeps it’s become more woody… so far..pretty interesting :)

drank Orange Pekoe by Ronnefeldt Tea
5925 tasting notes

you know…for an orange pekoe, this isn’t half bad. courtney sent this one my way as part of my ronnefeldt exploration. So far none of these have blown me out of the water, but they’ve also been relatively half decent. IE. nothing that i need to buy yet, but on the other hand, nothing that i’ve been unhappy with yet either :) i think my other cup of this will be with milk and sugar, just ’cause :)

Courtney

That’s how I’ve found them too.

yep..still don’t like this one. Oh well, not a problem since there are plenty out there that i do. there’s just something about the taste to this one that makes me like this a lot less than other roasty oolongs that i don’t fancy.

Stephanie

See, I’m the opposite. I love this one but other dark oolongs notsomuch :)

Sil

drank Amaretto Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5925 tasting notes

I had this today, though i’m not sure i should have. For whatever reason this just wasn’t sitting with me today. The scent or something was just off as i was trying to drink this. That being said, this is pretty true to life in terms of the flavours/aromas. If you are a fan of amaretto, i would suggest trying this one. My flavouring was distinctive and i found that to be intense enough, but i don’t think that robust would be too much flavour either heh not rating it since i think it just wasn’t my thing this morning.

this came to me from the lovely courtney as I asked her for a few of the ronnefeldt teas she had so i could try them as a company. This is not your malty sort of assam. Instead it’s more of a fruitier (but not a la taiwanese tea sort of fruity) cup of tea. There’s a boldness here that i can get behind, that is nice this morning. Thanks for sharing this one with me courtney!

Courtney

I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)

Ronnefeldt® USA

Thank you very much for the great review. We really appreciate it and are happy you were happy with the tea.

sad to see this one go. I started my morning out with this one as there are still a few things to be doing around the house as we have friends coming over for dinner and board games…and i’m still working as some things came to light from last night’s testing that i need to sort out. I love this tea and i can’t even explain why. there’s something about it that just makes me want to drink it. Plus the leaves always make me smile :)

drank Golden Fleece by Verdant Tea
5925 tasting notes

Had this as my final cup tonight, mostly because i wanted to have it shortly after the yunnan from terri… I still don’t get the fuss of this tea, though i do enjoy having a sample size of this in my cupboard from time to time :)

Final Count: 147 (7 more to go before i can say i’m at 150 for the end of February, even with the incoming teas, that will likely show up here before the end of the month…so it’s only swaps that will be able to ruin my count! but i DO have a week still..and two whole glorious weekend days left…)

mmmmm… this + vanilla in latte form was perfect tonight. Had a giant mug of latte goodness while watching an episode of fringe before testing tonight. On the whole, this is one i’d consider having in my cupboard from time to time. while there are a few coffee beans in the blend, they don’t leave that weird icky taste i’ve come to associate with some teas that have beans in them. I enjoy coffee as well, so this was a pleasant cup of goodness. Just enough left to have another cup tomorrow! :)

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Simpson & Vail
5925 tasting notes

another sample from cavocorax. Nice to have this back in my cupboard, though it appears that i like this less than the last time i had it. Perhaps Brioche has ruined almond sugar cookies for me :) Still though, nice to enjoy another cup of this as it’s not a bad tea, just not as delicious as Brioche for me in terms of dessert like teas heh

VariaTEA

I agree with the Brioche comparison. Both are good though :)

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.
