575 tasting notes

Hadn’t had this one in a long time, and rediscovered it while sorting my tea cabinet. It really hit the spot this morning. Doctored up with soy milk and sugar, it tastes just like peaches and cream. Yum!

So, I reorganized my tea cabinet. I mean, gotta make way for the 8.8 oz of Ceylon Star on its way, right?! ;) I actually was able to clear out one of the large containers I use to hold various teas, which is pretty awesome! I also sorted all my rooibos teas into one container, because I really have to be in the mood for that. I also have one container full of samples…I guess I know now why everyone dedicates Saturday for sipdowns…too many samples! And besides all the good stuff, I have a container of teas I don’t wanna ever drink again….not sure what to do with those yet. I feel like some of them are so lame, I wouldn’t even want to give them to people. Hmmm. Do any of you throw away tea if you feel like you shouldn’t subject others to the disappointment? Well, guess I better work on those samples!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

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! :)
