5241 Tasting Notes


15/28 sipdowns

this one came to me via YYZ and was another early morning, get me through this day, tea. This yunnan is a fruity sort of yunnan. On the whole i find that i prefer the sort of malty, chocolate, cocoa-y sort of yunnan. that’s not to say that this one isn’t bad, but it’s not the type that i prefer. it does reinforce that i need to get time to place an order with Capital teas though, as there are a number of tea there that i would likely really enjoy. Thanks for sharing YYZ!

This was a free sample in the order that cavocorax sent me so i had it way early this morning in the hopes that it would carry me through. sadly this has the same or similar base to other HI black teas and i am not a fan.

thanks for sending this one my way VariaTEA i think i would like this one a lot better without the rose. Initial sips of this are really nice and then the floral takes over and makes this a note happy sort of cup :( I am glad to have tried it though, as always you never know what you’ll like!

So you’d like it better if it was just ‘romeo’ ;)
…assuming juliet is represented by the rose…on the other hand, Juliet could be like us, drinking a tasty cup of tea on her balcony, while Romeo stands below with a bouquet of roses…

This was the other bagged tea i grabbed to make my life easier while i finished up testing. this is pretty tasty for a bagged tea, but i have to say – annoying that i had to cut the bag open to get at the tea bag lol no easy rip line or anything.. so i was worried i’d cut the tea bag. this one’s pretty mango-y and not at all bitter. thanks for this one omgsrsly

FInal, Final Count: 158 lol

this one is kinda not really a sipdown since it’ll be back in my cupboard tomorrow but today i am TOTALLY allowing this one to count. i mixed the very last of this with the cacao from herbal infusions that cavocorax sent me for my bday…SO DARN DELICIOUS! thanks for that tip courtney :) I just wish HI didn’t suck some serious ass as far as their customer service goes :(


Well I’m happy it finally showed up so you could mix it in!

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.
