4840 Tasting Notes

sooo crappy tasting notes but here they are nonetheless… this is much as expected, an early grey that is grapefruity, but still an EG. Cavo, if you want the last little bit of mine, it’s yours now that i’ve happily been able to try it! :) not too bad as far as EG’s go in my world..

Shorter tasting notes now since raritea is here but I’ll edit these later. :) long story short? Most white teas bore me to death….

CHAroma

Isn’t this a puerh?

Sil

Yeah…but I still think of it as a white tea…white puerh….

Cavocorax

It seems very light like a white. So confusing.
I can’t get any flavour of it though – hope Courtney has better luck with the last of mine!

Cavocorax

Rarirtea is there, eh? So, did more teas show up for you? Are you above 330 yet?

Terri HarpLady

AND WE WANT PHOTOS!! :D

Sil

oh… um oopsy.. we forgot about pictures..AGAIN terri… heh it was more gaming and tea drinking since Kittenna’s other half came too. We played games from like 1pm until 10pm. was a lot of fun. I dunno how much of a mess my cuboard is yet…too tired to add the rest of the teas that showed up yet.. sigh but lots of old stuff is gone from my cupboard now! officially have teas only as old as january now!

a green tea, really not for me. Into the swap box it goes for anyone who wants to try it.

sipdown on this one – aka into the swap box. there’s too much of a floral sort of background note to this one for me to really get into it. moral of the story? lupicia bags, even when split = too much tea in the varieties i don’t like haha

Cavocorax

LOL. I love the name of this.

Sil

yeah…we’re apparently both too lazy to put in the proper name

Cavocorax

Well some of those names are pretty ridiculously long!

drank Ceylon Osmanthus by Kally Tea

Finishing up this tea – the rest of it is going in to the swap box. I’m done with drinking teas that i don’t love! Not that this is a bad tea, but there are so many others that i’d rather spend my time drinking :) Plus i happen to know a few other people in the area that enjoyed this more than i did :)

drank Classic Christmas Blend by House of Tea

this tastes much less delicious than it first did. It appears that my tastebuds have moved on since i first had it. Dropping the rating as this is much as TEB described it – cinnamon water, with a dash of orange. booo

Figured i needed a good solid puerh to take a break from some of the other flavoured teas i’ve been drinking today. I thought today might be about getting rid of some of the samples that terri sent my way, but instead i find i’m using today as more of a purge this morning. Going back to the older teas in my cupboard or teas that i haven’t tried yet to see if i want to keep them around or just simply get rid of them.

This isn’t a sipdown and i’ll be drinking this for most of the morning. I’ve been hoarding this one as bakc in the day before i even got into puerh i bought samples of all of verdants offering just so that I could see if when i finally got in to puerh, i could pick up on the notes that have on their website.

So far this one is really easing me into my day, though i’ve been up for a while now. Looking forward to seeing how other steeps go, so there will be more on this one later.

drank Sakurambo (cherry) by Lupicia
4840 tasting notes

meh. I can see why this blend appeals to some folks but it is not for me. It hovers on being slightly artificial and then not. Into the swap box it goes as i’m sure there are others out there who would prefer this over me.

Terri HarpLady

Just don’t send any MY way, LOL!

Sil

haha naw – i try not to send flavoured your way unless they are higher up on my list of happy :)

Sil

…though it would serve you right! haha

drank Golden Orange by Tea Moments
4840 tasting notes

Received this in a swap with kittylovestea but haven’t had a chance to play with it much. I suspect that it might be a little old, hence the flavours being muted. I can see how this might be a really great black orange tea. I like that this isn’t chocolate orange :) It also smells fantastic! Thanks for sharing this one with me kitty!

Bio

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.
