7848 tasting notes

i picked this one up as a sample in my Yezi tea order because since i’ve last had it, i’ve had other Jin Jun mei’s that i really love and some that i didn’t like. I wanted to see whether my tastes has changed in the past year or so as far as this particular tea was concerned. turns out, not much has changed on this front – if anything i’m still not a huge fan of this version of jin jun mei..i’ll leave this one for my tea sister terri haha

last cup of this today. Again, not much to keep saying about this one – it’s delicious but won’t be a permanent item in my collection…though i will reorder :)

oh my dear swedish chef! this is a delight.! so close to grapefruit dragonwell from stacy, but slightly different. Besides the obviously different bases, this one borders on being just a slightly bit sweeter and artificial but not in a bad way. overall, this could be a substitute if i ever get a grapefruit hankering again…now that stacy is poofing on us :(

Sounds yummy! I like Lupicia’s version a lot too.

mmmm thanks for sending this one my way dinosara I have been enjoying this all mid-afternoon ish. Working from = get to try and have one of my puerhs! yaaay! this is a smooth one…with a woody sort of quality. Like being up north, standing in the woodshed. there’s a nutty quality to this one as well. i’ve quite enjoyed this today.

Another tea from my dearest swedish chef – i was doing well with sipdowns but my yezi tea order just showed up, so back up my count goes lol. This was on my wishlist after a review from missB, so i’m glad to get to try it! this is creamy…the cardamom does come through. now sencha isn’t my most favourite of teas, so it’s a plus that this one is so enjoyable for me. Thanks fjellrev!

This was a tea from my dearest swedish chef aka fjellrev sent me. this is a pretty tasty chocolate tea. I wasn’t expecting it to be quite this tasty. I had a couple cups this morning as a treat – in part for the sipdown factor but also because chocolate, creamy delicious for breakfast? yes please hahaha. I’m not sure if i’d reorder this, not because i didn’t enjoy it, but because i don’t reach for flavoured teas all that often. Still though, there’s a good balance here of chocolate (more milk than dark) and cream. thank you swedish chef!

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.
