This is pretty much still meh. I steeped it for longer this time to see what would come about from that and it’s still pretty meh. Hopefully next month will be better.

Stephanie

Yeah. Fingers crossed for next month!

Bonnie

So apparently..my last tasting note put me at 2900 with 1255 teas rated and 158 teas in my cupboard – the oldest being from February 2013. How’s that for useless numbers? :) time for some non caffeinated blends into this evening as i have a mountain of work to do tomorrow and need to be well rested to get it all done. I’m sorry to see that this tea is getting near the end of it’s pouch. It will be a restock for me once i get to the end of it, one of the few teas from della terra that i really enjoy.

Not useless at all! Tea’s like Pokémon: gotta catch ’em all.

drank Crimson Berry by Sloane Tea Company

mmmm i cold brewed this one since i haven’t had it in a while. This is one that needs a bit of sweetner to take the edge away, but when you do it’s a delicious berry concoction that is perfect in summer. In winter, it’s a reminder that summer will be back soon! haha :)

I know i’ve had this one before, but apparently my tasting note is gone. Another tea i was drinking in an effort to try and drink my reserve club teas that I’ve been hoarding. While i don’t generally want anything to do with green oolongs, this is a relatively decent green oolong. It’s lacking that weird oolongy taste that i hate and there’s a sweetness to this that is quite delicious!

In the first steepings there were those floral notes…waiting to come out, which they did more so in the later steepings. It’s those later steepings i really didn’t like. too floral and vegetal for my tastes. If every steep tasted like the first one, i’d be golden haha. As such, I think i will pass the rest of this on to a tea friend to try out :) especially since there aren’t very many reviews of this one on steepster

Sipdown! had a few cups of this tonight while i bounce between doing work and trying to plan the wedding and get my life organised for this coming week haha. I can dig this tea…even if it is an oolong and not my usual cup of tea. Not sad to see if go though :) i’d drink this one over a lot of other oolongs though heh

sipdown! (back to 160) This is not the tea for me. It’s not a bad little puerh, but there’s a peat sort of taste hanging about this one that i don’t much enjoy. I like the format of this one, and the scent is really nice. As i sip it, i find that the initial sips are tasty, but it’s the after taste that i’m not a fan of. While not quite the mini tucho for me, i wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered to me in the future. There’s no fishiness to this one either, for those that are worried about that :)

Stephanie

I am thinking about trying some of their flavored mini-touchas

Sil

i’ll keep an eye out for your tasting notes. :) I think on the whole i prefer garet for all my puerh, though there are a few loose puerhs that teavivre has that are really nice. Mandala has made me spoiled though. Teavivre is good for my black teas though :)

Stephanie

I agree about Mandala’s puerhs being SO GOOD! :D

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

Yep…14g of this a year is about all i need before i get tired of it haha. Sipdown! I need to get at least 2 more in tonight because i bought tea today and i’m desperately trying to make sure i at least stay at 160. I’ve been so good and this weekend i was so bad. Only because it’s not often you can get “fancypants” tea to quote a friend haha. This one is a decent enough blend, but as i usually find with David’s tea…lacking in the tea department and not as flavourful as i want it to be!

I had this again today – western Style for a couple of steepings. I’ll likely save the the last bit that i have to try it gonfu style. Is it tasty? For sure! Is it much different from the mainstream version? Not that my tastebuds seem to think. :) Love it though!

thanks for sharing this one terri! In keeping with my attempt to get through my BBB Box teas and my verdant reserve teas, I took this one shopping with me. It was pretty tasty even in a travel mug! Looking forward to being able to try this one out with my gaiwan, maybe next weekend.

Terri HarpLady

Yay! You like it!! :)

Trying to get through at least tasting the last round of teas from our BBBBox before the next round gets here. I brewed this western style because i can’t manage two gonfu at once haha. This is a really juicy tea..there’s a hint of a taste that i’m not familiar with coming through…sort of yunnan ish but not quite. Over all this is really tasty, though i for sure need to try this gong fu style next!

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.
