5370 Tasting Notes

88

This was a cup from earlier this morning. All i can really recall from it this morning was that is reminded me of the sweetness you get from jam…or at least that’s how it smelled haha I’m still loving this tea. I love the way it looks and tastes, so i’m glad i still have a bunch of it :)

drank Mint Cacao Tea by Tisano
5370 tasting notes

my darling swedish chef sent this one my way to try and i’m super glad she did. I have to say, i’m not one of those people who tends to drink cacao on it’s own. I much prefer it as an addition to teas to give them that roasty chocolatey taste. I’m drinking these samples on their own though as i want to get a better sense of how they’ll work with other teas. This one is hints of mint with a lot of cacao. I enjoy it, but i’m not sure i see the point of the mint lol. I’d likely just add cacao to a mint tea so that the mint was more present and i could control the mint level. Enjoyable, though..and a nice cup to end the evening. Time for bed with my headache not getting much better.

Final Count: 85

I have a wicked headache tonight too. Not sure whether it’s dehydration or lack of tea (or something else entirely). Sigh. Hope you’re feeling better [in the morning]!

Fjellrev

Are you feeling better today, the both of you? What is with us getting headaches lately. Yeesh.

Yeah, I wish they put more mint in here. I swear HI’s was mintier? But I like the idea of just customizing mint teas by adding the plain cacao to it.

Kittenna

I was feeling better… until I had a headache today too! It’s gone now though. 95% sure mine are the two causes I previously mentioned, so they should be avoidable. My boyfriend and roommate have also had headaches lately, though. :(

Fjellrev

Aww, no. I had another one today too. They just keep coming. So weird!

Kittenna

Boo :( Weather was my guess that’s more applicable to people other than myself. None of us typically get headaches. (My boyfriend in particular, and he absolutely hates them).

nomity nom nom. Another one of those teas that i really need to drink more often (especially since i have two tins of it) because it’s super tasty. I think i axctually prefer it a little more now that it’s sat around for a bit heh.

Yes, now you can claim it’s “aged” and therefore fancier. ;)

hahahahaha

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
5370 tasting notes

another tea from this afternoon. While i’m not making much direct progress with sipdowns, i am getting a bunch of teas within sipdown range, so i’m happy with that since next weekend is going to be a whole lot of not very much tea. Still enjoying this one as both a hot tea and a “hey i forgot about this tea and now it’s totally cold” just enough creamy lime to make me happy heh

I figured that i might as well splurge on having this one today since i had time for a couple resteeps and because it’s close to being finished. I really do want to keep on getting my cupboard in order – i’m thinking maybe a goal of 50 for the end of next year heh I enjoy this one, though with the discussion taking place about quality vs price this one comes to mind. I have a hard time justifying prices like this one tea, EVEN if it’s a tea that i can resteep and rather enjoy. Mainly because 9 times out of 10, unless i’m doing a puerh session, i don’t want resteeps. I want a different cup of tea. and secondly, there are other teas that are “nearly as delicious” that are half the price. So the majority of the time, i’m ok with those other teas. What i do like, is being able to splurge occasionally on more expensive, quality teas as a treat. So that i take the time to slow down and really enjoy them when i have them. This is one of those teas that falls in to that category. I really like it, but it’ll never be a permanent tea in my cupboard. Rather, i’ll rotate it in when i want a treat :)

Tealizzy

I just got Cocoa Amore…haven’t tried it yet, but I feel the same way…it took me a long time to get this one because of the price, but I decided to splurge this time to treat myself. :)

OMGsrsly

WHOA. 50 teas? Is that really enough selection? ;)

Ysaurella

it’s out of stock now but it was 17,25 USD for which quantity ? Cannot find the information on their website.

Fjellrev

It is per 1 oz., Ysaurella. Pretty steep. :/

50 teas is crazy talk!

Sil

every thing on the website is sold by 1oz quantities – there’s no discount on 2+ ounces

Sil

50 isn’t crazy talk….i got down to 80 this year…from like 200+

Ysaurella

17,25 for 1 oz is indeed very expensive. The quality of the vanilla used by WPC should so be outstanding.

Ysaurella

thanks for the information girls

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea
5370 tasting notes

Nearly done this one..and then i guess it’ll be a permanent sipdown given the demise of Rivertea. That’s unfortunate, since they had great customer service and most of their teas seemed to be fairly popular. I vastly preferred their fruit teas/tisanes but this was one of their straight teas that i really have enjoyed.

Roswell Strange

Until they say it themselves, I refuse to believe it… There were so many I wanted to stock up on/was trying to reorder :/ No more of my favourite Raspberry Herbal…

Sil

haha well they posted it in a reply on facebook to someone’s inquiry

drank Borengajuli Assam by Tea Time
5370 tasting notes

super weird. no tasting notes for this one though i’ve had it multiple times… frown I’m a little tired of things poofing around here. I just wish i had a way to export my data so that i could keep track of things outside of steepster. This tea isn’t my favourite. I just can’t seem to brew it correctly or in a way that takes the edge off of the one taste i’m not a fan of…not that ou’d know it by the lack of tasting notes.

drank Cookie by Lupicia
5370 tasting notes

Another cookie latte for the win…and you know what? i might just have another tomorrow to finish off the package. so there. :) I MUCH prefer drinking this tea this way now that i’ve found it….must remember that for future purchases since i would buy this one again.

Final Count: 88 (addded the teas from my swedish chef last night)

Fjellrev

Someone’s on a køøkie roll, I see.

Kittenna

I think this one recommends milk in the description (but it’s probably not the only tea to do so).

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.
