7741 Tasting Notes

had the last cup of this one today in an effort to make a little progress on my cupboard today since RiverTeas will be rescued from mail jail this afternoon. While i enjoyed this tea a bunch, i’m still just not a fan of adagio on the whole enough to be buying a lot of their teas.

I hope to come rescue all my teas from you soon! I might have time off work next week or the week after so it’ll be easier to visit!

Sil

looks like not all the Riverteas showed up sigh

ugh..i’m almost out of this tea, which is a good thing and a bad…because even if i ordered this today, it wouldn’t be here for a couple weeks…and it’s not like i need mroe tea. but it IS a december tea and that’s part of my 6 month goal that i likely won’t make but i’ll keep working on :) enjoying this today as i’m having a bit of an apathetic day. i think i’m still sick so its making me tired and complacent. heh

damn, I forgot to bring that tea with me to Tony’s…

drank Walnut Truffle by Tea Desire

this one came my way via Roswell Strange I have to say that while i have apparently tried this before, today it was a better cup than i’d say the last time i had it. Might have something to do with the GIANT WALNUTS in my cup :) it was nice to have this one again, though still nothing i need to stock.

backlog – i didn’t realise i’d already had this team – some came my way via the BBB box grab bag ;) it’s nice to revisit this since it’s been a while since i last had it. However, my perceptions are still the same. Not a bad tea, not a great tea…just average…

Final Count yesterday: 213 (not too shabby since i lost 6? hours to Ikea..18 teas)

I brought all of my ‘grab bag’ teas with me this weekend, so hopefully I’ll get around to trying them all.

i feel like i had a different tea than everyone else lol This one came my way from boychik and i had it yesterday (finishing my catch up). To me? this was barely smokey…instead what i was getting was a deliciously smooth tea with just a hint of something that might be smokey. Even after a couple resteeps it was just a pleasant cup of tea lol

Joseph Wesley Black Tea

That sounds like the correct tea. Our #7 Lapsang Souchung is a much higher grade Lapsang Souchung than any we’ve seen in the North American market. The art of its constructio and what makes us so excited about it is that it has a perfect balance between the natural sweetness of the leaves (picked from wild tea trees) and the gentle smokey notes from the final heating with wood – not wet needles. It’s definetly not a heavy handed tea. Happy to read that you enjoyed it.

Sil

i loved it :)

boychik

im happy you loved it.

Angrboda

Yes, I agree! I found it very mild as well.

Sil

Yay I’m not the only one hahaha

glad to be finished up with this one….needed a break from caffeine teas before we do some running around tonight for house things. I’ve got 15 more teas to try and get through tonight and let me tell you….holy it’s a long road haha. this is nice enough, but given the choice, i would of course always reach for THE pumpkin ginger tea…

Terri HarpLady

No other pumpkin tea will ever measure up! :D

sooo i had hopes for this one…i do like blueberry and lemongrass but there is almost too much lemongrass in this one for me to really get behind it. it’s nice..but..just missing the mark a little for me. thanks for sharing variaTEA!

VariaTEA

Did you get licorice?! No matter what I did, this tasted like licorice.

Sil

haha no..no licorice for me.. that’s weird

VariaTEA

Just me then. Weird indeed.

i think? this one came from variaTEA and i figured today would be a good time to revisit an old friend. I quite like this one and it’s nice to get to check in again with this tea and see that i STILL find it a tasty cup :)

drank Mangalam Assam TGFOP1 by Joy's Teaspoon

another one that came my way via the BBB Ladies. sadly it wasn’t much to write home about. it’s a sweet sort of assam and not at all what i wanted today. that being said it wasn’t a BAD cup of tea, just…boring? uneventful?

cavocorax sent this one my way and i was glad. I sort of went off trying mint chocolate chip black teas because i really love stacy’s herbal version. Sadly, this one wasn’t a win for me. it’s a nice enough mint chocolate chip, but it’s not strong or enticing enough for me to pick it up in favour of the herbal version. still though, decent cup of mint chocolate chip tea :)

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.
