52 Tasting Notes

My husband and I spent 10 days in Peru, and practically lived off this stuff – most especially when we both fell ill. It has a grassy flavor, and I don’t really care for it, but it helped as we were traveling into higher and higher altitudes. My stomach was not happy with me at all!

Very nice. Mild. Better than the Yunnan Golden Tips.

Good. I like others more, but I wasn’t disappointed. I do love chocolate, but this one was a little too … I don’t know. Bold? Smoky? Something like that. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Didn’t really enjoy this one. Too bitter. Even with my usual heavy doses of cream and sugar, it was too much. (Tobacco?) Tried steeping for less time, and it was better, but still don’t enjoy the flavor as much as other teas.

Another attempt at a green. And another green I’m none too fond of. This one was kind of mellow, but grassy. My husband didn’t even like it, and he likes greens.

Sigh. I wanted to like it, but I just don’t. Earl Grey Supreme is magic. Plain old Earl Grey is not. I just don’t like it at all. There’s something missing.

Good, good, good. Not one of my top picks, but it has a nice flavor. It is one we go back to every now and again.

Did not like this one. Had a strong … smokey smell? And a woody flavor that did not appeal.

I may love this one just as much (if not a little more) than Golden Monkey. The smell alone is enough to make me insanely happy. Hot, cold, sweet, unsweet… I love this tea.

Bio

I grew up on sweet tea, so I have a habit of sweetening just about every tea I drink. But I make a point to try everything at least once without any dressing. I am partial to blacks, and not too fond of greens (except when I have a cold). I treat my teas like my coffee – cream and sugar! And lots of it! I’m terrible, I know.

I also don’t give great big, in-depth reviews (which is sad, because I like to pretend I’m a writer), so don’t expect great things!

In the real world, I am an artist, freelance. Painting, digital art, graphic design, websites, promotional graphics, illustration. I’m even trying to figure out wire bending. I like to write as well, though I haven’t managed to finish anything (still working on that novel!)

I am a fan of zombies, gaming (video, board, cards, RPG…), reading, travel (but not airplanes), comic books/graphic novels, Disney, steampunk, and fluffy socks.

My husband and I love tea, and are now learning to make our own blends.
