8061 Tasting Notes


tea from omgsrsly today is surprisingly busy at work, all things considered, so not sure how many sipdowns i’ll get through unless i bust out the herbals tonight. This is an interesting one for me. It’s a juicy, slightly malty (but more juicy) assam. It’s not super bold, but there’s enough character here for it to not be a wimpy cup of tea. I had this one first thing today to kick off the day! thanks lady!

haha omgsrsly sent this one to me (sipdown!) I actually don’t mind it…but i think i’d like it better without the apple. It adds a weird sort of fruity taste to it whereas the rest of the ingredients work a little better together. Still though, will be interesting to compare this one to the black tea base version :) thanks lady!

Final Count: 112 (9.5 sipdowns a day for the rest of the days i’m home would get me back to my goal for the end of the year….totally doable. maybe. )

kittenna dropped the rest of her package off with me this past weekend because i love this tea…lovED this tea. Not sure if this was a reblend or what, but this doesn’t taste nearly as wonderful and yummy and delicious as when i first had it, and i even added the strawberries from my butiki tea to it :( Thank you so much for the kind thought though Kittenna! I will still enjoy finishing the rest of this off :)


It was the same bag, but I suspect the packaging helped it lose a bit of flavour. I still thought it was pretty decent when I drank it recently before sending it off :D


oh i enjoyed it! and finished it alllll up! lol

not sure if it was the travel mug or my lack of focus today but this was not as tasty as i remember. I’ll have to try it out again soon when i can focus in on it…once i get through some of my bajillion samples!

another tea from today – mostly because i’d like to get through my older harvest haha I’m sitting on about 8oz of this in the house, so no need to save it for a bit.

Terri HarpLady

I still have plenty, plus I picked up 2 oz of the most recent harvest, because I think maybe now I have 3 or 4 different harvests, & it would be fun to compare them, right?

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.
