I’ve been drinking this one over the course of the morning/afternoon as Try to get my tea order figured out and get some work done. Turns out with the Nina’s order and the Lupicia order that were placed, but i won’t have in my cupboard until March…i technically need to get down to 130 by the end of February. However, since those orders won’t be in my house until march…i’m so not counting them until they get here. So unless more tea shows up in the next few days, i’ve officially made my goal of getting to 150 by the end of February…final tally to occur on Saturday heh. In the mean time, at least i can keep on working on things.

I pulled this one out today because yesterday i drank the same but the shu… turns out i like this one a little better, but i don’t quite have the same drinking experience as others have had. To me, this is a little smoky…and a little creamy. Some have said cabbage like flavours, which i’m totally not getting, but what i am getting, i’m enjoying. The last little bit of this sample will be reserved for Cavo :)

bumping up the rating on this one since having another cup this morning. this really is a unique and interesting tea. I am really enjoying it this morning – it’s smooth, slightly sweet, and it’s got some sort of muscatel? notes but not in an overpowering way. it’s just…tasty. so there.

drank Dinjoye Estate Assam by Butiki Teas
5941 tasting notes

I’ve been up working for a bit now, trying to get things wrapped up before my other half decides to grace me with his presence this morning lol. I can’t decide how i feel about this one. One day there’s a bitterness to it i don;t like and then the next day it’s just bold and delicious. Seems to me that there’s an after taste here as well that i don’t love. Still on the fence on this one for now. I think i’ll likely land on this being a decent enough tea, but not one to restock as there are other straight teas from stacy i like more.

No real plans for sipdowns today, though if i can get through 4 that would be awesome. Instead i’m focusing largely on having some of my butiki teas as i tend to hoard those and hold off on drinking them a lot of the time…for no real reason lol

this was my last tea from yesterday evening. We had a great time hosting friends for ‘sunday dinner’ and board games. stayed up a little too late but had a great time. this weekend has been super great – spring cleaning the whole house, having friends over and now we still have a day to relax and do nothing with :) Ended the evening with this one as the perfect night cap to a great night

Final Count: 144

Figure i should keep drinking up these teas since i have a few ppl who will be getting little samples of these from me. I still find there’s too much blergamot in this one to really be a great tea, but the raspberry and vanilla flavoring do help to tone it down enough that i don’t want t outright dump the cup out (i’m looking at you river song..) This was ok in offsetting and creating a contrast for the puerh i’ve been drinking but i’m sure most of this tin will be off in swaps for others to enjoy more :)

MissB

Blergamot! Love it. :)

Sil

it makes my taste buds frown

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
5941 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

moar for you! :)

drank Amaretto Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
5941 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.

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.
