3070 Tasting Notes

Another tea from the HHTTB, & a sipdown. There wasn’t much left of this, so Drew used it all. I tried a small sip.
:p tastes artificial

My son Drew made a pot of this & I drank a small cup. I think I sampled this before from the first swap I had with Sil. It’s not bad, though not something I’d keep around.

From the Here’s Hoping TTB, and a sipdown.

I’m winding down my sampling efforts. This is a pleasant roasty oolong, & although it doesn’t have the amazing incense & caramel qualities of some of my favorites, it is still a nice cup, with a woody & nutty character.

And this one is like the afterglow…sigh…

(If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, read the review I just posted on Tiger Assam. That will clue you in).

Sounds like a very good tea day! :-)

This is such an awesome cup of goodness, so deliciously bold & malty.
After spending all day yesterday sampling teas that were mostly blah,
I’m really taking great pleasure in this cup.
Remember the movie, “When Harry met Sally?”
I’m like Sally right now, during the famous scene where she’s talking about women faking orgasms (am I allowed to say that word here?).
“Yes!! Oh God Yes!!….”

i think the rule is ‘keep it clean’ is all. jason didn’t specify. we could message him and ask whether the word ‘orgasm’ is dirty in his mind…. of course without context, just for fun. LMAO

lol, somehow I doubt anybody here will be offended :)

Haha, I have a travel mug full of this at work that I haven’t opened yet, should be awesome this afternoon :D

it’s an excellent tea to be sure, a very smooth drop kick of caffeine!

I do enjoy green tea, but am not a big fan of flavored greens. This one is ok, but a little on the astringent side, & probably if I had sweetened it a little I would have enjoyed it more. In my effort to try ALL the teas, I’ve been doing little 4 oz mini-cups all day. That way, if I don’t care for something it’s no big loss, & also I got through a lot of teas!

I’m not always a big fan of earl greys, but this was not bad! I added a little stevia, just a pinch, & that made the difference.

This is a fruity blend, with a coconut taste that is a little oily for me.

I have toasted sesame oil in the fridge, which we use often in cooking. I kind of thought this would taste somewhat like it, but I didn’t really get much of a sesame taste from it.

Very lightly scented, not much flavor. I would probably get more strawberry flavor if I sweetened it, but I didn’t.

Bio

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!
