mmmm sad to see this one go – found the sweet spot with this one with just a tiny bit of sugar added to the cup. Just enough to cut the tartness and bring out the other flavours. Thanks for this one omgsrsly

meh. I think i just don’t love this one. it’s not a bad tea, but every time i drink it, i wish it were different. more gingerbread like and less…muted spice like.

Wishlist tea from dexter holy we are being productive today. Tree down, house being dusted, vaccumed, floors washed etc while i work on release testing and copying all our CD’s over to digital. woot woot!

I’ve been sipping on this one for the better part of the afternoon – puerhs are great for busy house weekends i think because if you forget about what you’re drinking, just make another steep lol this is a really nice, smooth puerh. more to the woody side of things than earthy, sort of like hiking in the woods in vancouver ;) really enjoyed my time with this, and may have to put it on my wishlist, though i suppose it’ll likely sell out before i can get to it.

note: was able to do a significant number of steepings with my little sample from dexter – 10+ before it ran out of steam

Kristal

Awesome! I has many days off but unfortunately wasn’t productive in the way of cleaning- only productive knitting and reading wise, lol.

Sil

it’s technically a day off but i’m working all weekend from home. so goo excuse to get shit done…though i’d rather be reading :)

Crimson Lotus Tea

I’m glad you liked it! :-)

OMGsrsly

Wait. Dex AND I sent you this one?! I though Dex had a different CL Bulang… unless her Steepster cupboard wasn’t updated.

Sil

mmmm lemme go check this was a dex one for sure and nothing was a duplicate in my cupboard

Sil

i have no shou from you from CL…just sheng

OMGsrsly

The ball is Planet Jingmai. I thought I also sent you a silver baggie with this one though… I’ve never had the 2012 unless they were sampling it at the tea festival.

Sil

nope nothing in my puerh sample in silver from you. :)

OMGsrsly

I’m not imagining things. It’s in the current box for you. :P

Dexter

Dunno – I sent the one on her wishlist – I just ordered a couple of samples when I pot my yixing pot.
Was thinking about drinking Planet Jingmai next but it might have to wait for tomorrow. The little gold one from W2T is smaller and will be more appropriate for tonight.
Happy you liked this one…. :)

OMGsrsly

Planet Jingmai seems to last forever. The W2T one has been inexpertly hacked apart by moi.

Dexter

I’m not going to treat it with too much care – just going to toss it into a small pot and see what happens. I’m doing better with sheng lately with less leaf and hotter water – will see how that does with this one.

Sil

jingmai is on my list for tomorrow…since it’s not in a bag and i keep forgetting what it is lol

The productiveness of yours is very impressive. Very impressive.

Another tasty tea from today – mostly because i wanted to see if i could get this one to work a little better for me. turns out i can if i drop the temp a little and add a tiny bit more cocoa nibs :)

noms! farewell tasty tea. Momma wants some more sipdowns so you were had today haha. Enjoy this one, not sure if i’ll pick it up again since it fell a little flatter for me than others who seemed to really love it.

edit: 135 roswell! (not that i have a lot of sipdown reachable teas lol)

drank Naka Unfermented Puerh by JalamTeas
7437 tasting notes

puerh from this morning, courtesy of the lovely dexter Now, i’m not a huge fan of sheng. They’re more hit or miss for me than shou, though i have found a couple i really love (wild monk, i’m looking at you!). This one is sort of middle of the road for me. it’s too shengy for me, without that sort of sweetness that i do enjoy from sheng’s. Happy i got the chance to go at it this morning, but i’ll likely swith to a shou this afternoon before going back to another sheng :)

Long day/days is going to be long. Start of a release weekend so i’m not sure if i’ll get to sleep tonight or if i’ll be enjoying my tea cupboard all night long. lol started the weekend off with some selections from Joseph W. since they’re tasty and will help me ease in to things before i start trying to knock back some puerh in between testing, cleaning and organising things :) i’ve had this one a ton, so not much more to say on it. I will likely pick this one up again once it’s finished and the dollar comes back up a bit :(

noms. Western brew of this one for a treat. this one does more for me than the art of darkness. Vanilla and cocoa in the first steeping – looking forward to seeing what the ther steeps hold.

edit: second steep wasn’t as awesome as the first, so next time may just go straight to a 5 min steep :)

Final Count: 137

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.
