3091 Tasting Notes

This tea is from an order Sil & I shared from Taiwan Tea Crafts awhile back. It’s an interesting tea, but definitely not my favorite from the box.
Sipdown! I think I’m at 216.

Sil sent this one to me awhile back, & lightly sweetened, this is actually pretty tasty. There is bergamot in there, but it takes a back seat to the creamy lemony taste. Thanks Sil :)

Now I’m working on a pot of this! It’s a very different, much brighter profile, than the double knit, but equally delicious. Of course, it’s no longer available, but Tyler’s new breakfast blend, Full Steam, is!

Good morning! I worked on a pot of this nicely bold & lightly smokey brew while fixing breakfast. I’m getting a little low, on this & my other Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Teas. I’ll probably run out just in time for Black Friday!

This is one of the teas that I kept from the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea box. It makes for a nice cup to enjoy in the bubble bath!

Another tea from the BBBBox, this one contributed by Tasty Brew. Today this tea is reminding me somewhat of Laoshan Black, with a chocolaty taste too it, but not as sweet. As it cooled down, it took on a bitter tone.

Round three of the BBBBox arrived at my door today! Yay!! More tea!


Aaaaahhhh! That means it’s going to be here before November lol

I drank this one straight today, steeped up in my travel mug, to enjoy while I was out running errands. I don’t really have a lot to say about it, but I enjoyed it! It’s one of the teas from our first round with the BBBBox, thanks Sil.

This one is a sipdown from one of my many tea trades with Sil. I went on a french vanilla coconut milk creamer frenzy today, after weeks of abstinence from that stuff, & I’m pleased to report that it was really good in this chai too!

Leif asked me to get coconut milk french vanilla creamer from the grocery story today. I got some, & the next thing you know, it was in my Chai.
I blame Dag

My sons Drew & Leif asked me to report that they drank the last of this tea, & they both love it. I guess I’ll have to get more, the next time I see Annette at the Farmer’s Market.



Oh, my goodness—the just the name makes me drool.

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
