drank Gyokuro Kin by Den's Tea
1299 tasting notes

Sipdown from the HH teabox! Sadly, I think this one was affected by other teas in the box, leaving it undrinkable. (No rating because of that.) It was about 90 seconds with very cooled water. Sometimes the sandwich bags do that. Hopefully none of the other teas are like that! The only reason teaboxes aren’t fun (except, you know, if they get lost). But I had another Den’s tea the other day that was PERFECT so I know Den’s teas are good. I invested in some of these though: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-3-5×5-Ziplock-Stand-Up-Pouches-Bags-SUP-AA-Clear-Silver-/310658911232?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4854b6cc00 I put a tea that I could smell through THREE sandwich bags into this one and a couple days later, I can not smell this tea through this pouch at all. A good investment! And especially great for teabox samples!

I have those same bags and they are great – well worth the money!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
