5241 tasting notes

oh campfire blend…your tea is delicious and the aroma protects me from the nastiness of my other half’s farts tonight :) yeah… worst smell ever! On that note…had a cup of this while we watched a show before i pass out. Almost 10pm so i can finally go to bed after being up since 5:30am friday morning. go go work weekends! i think i forgot to restock this one so i might end up needing another verdant order soon… almost through this tin!

LOL. hilariously candid.

I feel your pain, Sil… Oh, the farts. :P

Sil

usually i’m the one stinking him out of the room so he was gleeful about the whole thing. me? i just stuck my nose in the tin of tea lol

Cameron B.

Hah! My farts tend to be more noisy than smelly… My boyfriend always laughs at me and calls me a duck. .

Sil

OMG i just died laughing! that’s the running joke around here… he always comments that the duck is back and following me around again!

Cameron B.

Gotta love girl talk. <3

Marzipan

Trying so hard to not laugh and wake up Karsten!

Sil

smoke scent? check. smooth taste? check. overly smoky? negative! hahaha… so this is one of those lapsangs where a lot of it’s bite is in the aroma. Actually drinking this, it’s clearly a smokey tea but nowhere as smokey as i expected it to be based on smell alone. I’m looking forward to seeing how stacy blends this one with banana! :) glad i was able to pick up a bit of this one in my order!

i was drinking this most of the morning but sadly my taste buds are not cooperating today or maybe it’s my brain. the taste of this one is super familiar and yet, i can’t place it. very frustrating. I’m going to have to order more of this one because it is super delicious, refreshing….yeah that’s all i’ve got for now heh

You might say the taste of the tea is on the tip of your tongue in more ways than one.

Sil

hahaha yes!

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea

Cup from this morning in between special dark steepings heh. going to be a loooooong day. i still hold that River Tea does fruit teas much better than their black straight teas. that being said, this one isn’t too bad. there’s a maltiness to this one that goes along with the slight bitterness that i kinda like from time to time.

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
5241 tasting notes

I’ve been doing my best to try and use my little teapot at least once a week. It’s my first tea pot and needs some serious love before it’ll be all awesome sauce. Doing so though, also gives me an excuse to drink special dark every week haha. I am a fan of this puerh – have been since i first tried it way back when. I really enjoy getting to have a few dozen steepings of this and watching the flavours change. Hopefully my little pot will appreciate it!

i treated myself to this one last night. I’m trying to take my time drinking through the bit that i purchased since i’m not likely to be picking it up on a regular basis. Unless there’s a sale it’s hard to justify the price for a tea that isn’t travel mug friendly EVEN if it IS delicious. I need my teas to be able to handle travel mugs, if only because the vast majority of my tea is had via that means. Not the most amazing way to drink tea but there are limited options at work otherwise. Going to call it a new day now, and land my final count for Friday at 80. On the upside, i’m still at my goal for this month with a couple more days left in the month before i’m travelling again heh.

Final Count: 80

Ysaurella

this tea seems really fantastic

whatshesaid

Do you work at a desk? No mug and kettle at work?

Sil

i barely have time to get away for lunch most days…dealing with the kitchen and tea baskets and stuff…no way. i was doing it for a time..then it was just easier to pack up 3 travel mugs in the morning to get me through the day lol

whatshesaid

Ohhh ok. Makes sense! Too bad!
My frequent trips to the staff kitchen for fresh cups of tea help me get through my days, lol.

having a cup of this while i decide on which puerh to drink up today. I’d like to have at least 2 since i’ve got another 17 hrs before i sleep…wheeee! i do find it relaxing at least on release weekends…and this IS my last one until January.

I still enjoy this one with a splash of honey. I think though, when i made it, i really wanted kaphaa lol so maybe that will be next. maybe :)

this one isn’t working for me tonight. it’s too…..earthy? dirtlike? i dunno…i’m going to chalk this one up to being overtired or something since i don’t normally dislike this one. and i’ve certainly had this batch before.

this is another one that i’m finishing up tonight. While i don’t mind this one, it’s just not something i need to have in my cupboard all the time. It’s a slightly different keemun, and therefore i enjoyed having it. I’m just not going to miss it a ton!

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.
