478 tasting notes

Why do I like this one so much? It has great complexity! Was trying to decide on an afternoon tea and once I smelled the dry leaves, my mouth started watering! Funny, cuz I’m not really into tart teas, but this one is really rounded out. Fully enjoyed my cup of this while finishing up work.

In other news, I just ordered more new tea!!! My third order in 4 days ;)

LOL, about the tea ordering! I’m trying to behave myself, at least for a little while, but I have found myself starting lists of teas I want from different companies, thinking I can rotate through those companies, ordering from one at a time. Otherwise, I tend to be a binge orderer.

I couldn’t help it! Plus, I’m way behind most of the folks on here, so it can’t be that bad! ;) I’ve been compiling a shopping list too. I find it so handy that I can put a tea in there that I want to remember based on a great review and then, once I have a few teas for one company, make an order!!

That’s basically the way I’m doing it!

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
