4729 Tasting Notes

80

SIPDOWN! I forgot i had to add in 2 butiki teas to my cupboard so there really is no likely way i’ll hit 200 teas this weekend – a more reasonable goal is probably 210, so i’ll aim for that. I didn’t brew this traditional style – i wanted to see if this would hold up to my usual brewing and it did! Thank you nicole for sending this my way. I’ll like pick up more of this at some point from either S&V or H&S. It’s a pretty decent addition to my cupboard for those days when i don’t want an overly bold tea or a malty one. I’m interested in trying it “traditional” style as well some day.

Nicole

Yeah, I find the traditional style quite interesting as a change of pace. :)

drank Té de Frutas by Lupicia

Had a cup of this one today as i need to work on drinking my older teas. Thankfully my teas are all still less than a year old, but there are a few that are getting up there and this is one of them. I always forget how tasty this cup of tea is. I really need to compare it to lupicia’s “lychee” tea that i have in my cupboard to see how different they are and which i like the best. :) still enjoying this one! love the lychee flavour

SIPDOWN! Once again, thanks to kittylovestea for sending this my way a while back in our swap. I have apparently been drinking this without logging it in my distracted state so now it’s allll gone! It was a nice change of pace while i had it. Thanks for sharing Kitty!

drank Black Pearl by The Mountain Tea co

SIPDOWN! I needed a tea i knew would be super delicious this morning to kick off my day after the green teas i had. I picked this one as there was just enough for another cup. I will be restocking this in future to have as a great black to rotate through my cupboard. thanks nicole!

drank Matcha Kirara Rice by Lupicia
4729 tasting notes

Into the swap box this one goes. It’s not a bad tea but the matcha really doesn’t add anything to the taste as far as I can figure out and it’s a pretty “average” genmaicha. there are a number of others i would drink before this one. Again, though, that’s more of a personal preference than this tea being a “bad” tea. If you enjoy genmaicha’s this one would probably be a tea you’d enjoy. I, on the other hand like them on occasion only, and therefore want to stick to the truly exceptional ones that i have had :)

drank Mate Green by Lupicia

So it turns out i like green mate better than roasted mate, but still not so much. I tried this today while trying to get ready for the day. While it isn’t nearly as yucky to me as roasted mate, it still has an odor i don’t like and it a pretty “meh” cup of tea. Into the swap box it goes in case others want to try it.

drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas

last tea of the evening…wanted something that i knew i would like and still work towards my goal. This, along with raspberry cream are probably the two 52 teas that i have that are hardest to drink up since i know they’ll be gone when i’m done. One of these days i WILL remember to try this as a latte, but tonight is not the night. I really do love this blend and thank you nicole for adding to my stash of it haha :)

Nicole

It’s been a pretty popular cold tea that I’ve shared with several people. I would like to think he’d bring it back at some point.

drank Lime Jello Salad Green Tea by 52teas

Another 52 tea for the day. I always forget that I enjoy this as a hot brew too, especially with just a little bit of sugar added to sweeten it slightly.

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.
