sipdown! another tasty almond tea. I’m trying to drink other teas alongside my puerhs today to help with the sipdowns. This one was altogether pretty tasty, though not my favourite almond tea :)

drank 2005 Ye Sheng Wild Tea Log by Norbu Tea
5241 tasting notes

sipdown! I have a lofty goal today of trying to get down to 160 so that by next weekend i might possibly have reached my black friday goal, two weeks ahead of schedule. It’s lofty because i have a large number of puerhs to drink and those take time..however i’ve been up since 5am because of work so i think i’ll manage a few more than usual haha

this is a light, sweet, floral puerh. It’s pretty meh for me but i think that’s because it’s closer to a white tea than anything.

Since I can’t get in as many sipdowns as I’d like this weekend, I’ll live vicariously though yours ;)
I have quite a few puerh samples here, & once I drink them I’ll have quite a few sipdowns to log, but I don’t want to rush through them, because I really do want to experience them in full. Maybe I should start getting out of bed a little early…lol

Sil

that’s my problem right now. puerhs take forever because i want to sip through as many steepings as possible. Not sure where i’ll end up but i have plans for this week if i don’t manage too much today. Depends on whether i have to nap later haha

drank Fleurilège by Dammann Freres

sipdown! I adore this tea and i’m super sad to see it go. All this makes me want to do is travel over to europe for a weekend of shopping at tea stores! :)

(168) nice thing is, i picked up 2 David’s teas to try but sipdowns today = a cupboard that hasn’t moved!

Nicole

Ooo, ooo! I’m up for that! Let me know when you want to leave and I’ll meet you in, say, Paris? :)

Sil

don’t tempt me madam! I’ve started a mini fund to do it..even if it means leaving ian behind haha

Nicole

Oh, the trouble we could get into on a tea expedition without the men… :)

Dinosara

LOL Steepster trip to Paris!

Sil

yes please!

drank Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA
5241 tasting notes

I really like the “chili” aspect of this tea but i can do without the chocolate. I really don’t like the way that a lot of teas “chocolate” flavour tastes, and david’s tea is no exception. it was worth a taste at least!

ifjuly

which teas have a chocolate flavor you really dig? curious.

ifjuly

(oh and to clarify just in case, i don’t like this one either)

Sil

uh…i’ll get back to you on that one haha I can’t recall off the top of my head.

Cavocorax

Chocolate in tea is SO hard. :(

Dexter

(I like H&S chocolate – Florance and Soho…)

Sil

dexter – yeah H&S isn’t too bad. I also like butiki’s chocolate though she doesn’t have too many blends with chocolate.

Dexter

Verdant Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha is another I like, more natural less fake chocolate.

Sil

oh for sure.. if you’re looking for “cocoa” rather than chocolate there are a number of options as well….

Amariel

I love this one, especially for the chocolate.

drank Oriental Beauty by Butiki Teas

I had this in the morning and recall very little now that it’s so many hours later. I did enjoy but a better note will have to wait for a time i’m better at recording things closer to drinking them :)

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
5241 tasting notes

we’ve got some duplicate entries going on for the new david’s tea collection but this one has the most notes on it so logging it here. They gave me this as a free sample in store today. I was pretty much convinced i didn’t want any of the winter collection based on the fact that i generally don’t like david’s tea and other steepsterites had posted such “glowing” reviews for the collection. However, free sample taste? sure.

Verdict? watered down pineapple upside down cake from della terra. More oily, less tasty…lacking in overall OOMPH. Pass.

drank Pu-Erh Gourmand by Dammann Freres
5241 tasting notes

want.more. sipdown! I had this one tonight in latte form and it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! seriously! I need to get on board the puerh latte train or something! I have a sneaking suspicion i’ll be trying this with more of my puerhs going forward…especially the few flavoured ones i have. so good! Thank you so much dinosara!! love it!

Anna

It is! It is SO GOOD. I am so drinking this tomorrow!

QueenOfTarts

This sounds DELICIOUS.. and I don’t even like puerh!

Sil

I’m so sad it’s gone…queen of tarts, it’s a great flavoured puerh. I generally prefer mine straight but this one in rich and delicious!

drank Watermelon Xylophone by Butiki Teas
5241 tasting notes

I had a cup of this in the late afternoon as a bit of a treat. I haven’t had any in aaaages and i wanted something light and fresh. This did the trick! I really like the light watermelon taste that Stacy has created with this one. It’s not something i always want in my cupboard but i love rotating it in occasionally :)

Fjellrev

Oh geez, I STILL haven’t tried this even though I’ve had it since August! Do you like Cantaloupe and Cream more?

Sil

i like both flowery pineapple and cantaloup and cream more than this one. Not that this one is bad, but the other flavours are something i would reach for more often. This isn’t an artificial watermelon taste…it’s like freshly squeezed watermelon dilluted in water? of course that doesn’t sound delicious…but it’s good! I like it a bunch, just not enough for permanent status..but i feel that way about nearly all teas that aren’t black haha

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.
