2855 Tasting Notes

This tea was a wonderful start to my day. Bold, malty, a little tangy, with a nice full flavor that I love. Yumm!

Thanks again Sil for this Rooibos blend, which I thought was pretty tasty, & my son Drew agrees.


YAY! It’s pretty tasty as far as rooibos goes heh

OK….so I’m also trying to drink a flavored green a day…at least for the next week, in order to get through them & stay on track for my goal, which is to drink a cup of every tea that’s in my cupboard at least once a month. Crazy, I know!
This one’s ok. Mildly vegetal with a hint of strawberry & just a little tart. Really not bad.


I’ll look for this locally. Fox Farm—our local store—has a nice selection of Frontier teas.

I’ve also decided to drink a green tea per day, again in an effort to get through my entire collection!
This one is pleasant, not overly flavorful, not something I would crave, but makes me think of lying in a field of clover. :)

I’m trying to drink more white tea. I’m not a huge white tea fan, I tend more towards bold & beautiful blacks, but I have a pretty good selection of whites here, & in my efforts to start sipping down some things, I’ve decided I need to drink from each of my white teas this week. So one white tea per day is what I’m going for!

This is a pleasant, though un-exciting tea. There is a bit of a ‘cream of wheat with a little vanilla soymilk on it’ taste, & a hint of lime.

A nice way to bring my Keemun drinking day to a close, at least for now. Of course, this isn’t a straight Keemun, but there’s enough in this blend to lend the gentle smokiness & sweetness. I love Andrew’s & Dunhams Damn Fine Teas!

What can I really say? It’s another cup of Keemun.
This one may be a little bit maltier than the other 2, & less smokey.
None of them resemble Teavivre’s Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant Black.
This has been a nice smooth cup (as they all have been), & pleasant, but no real bells & whistles on any of them.

drank Keemun by The Tea Spot

Strangely, today this one seems to have a bit of a fishy taste to it, kind of in the background. Maybe I’m imagining it…

First cup of the day. I’ve been drinking aLOT of Assam lately. This is a nice contrast, though not nearly so bold. A little smokey, kind of a brown sugar taste.

One of the Verdant reserve TOMC teas is a Keemun, which I’ve sampled but have not yet written about. I thought maybe I’d drink my way through several Keemuns that I have, to create more of a reference point, & then sample it again.

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas
2855 tasting notes

I’m brewing a somewhat strong 16oz of this to take to my gig this morning. It will stay hot for quite some time, & I can sip & savor in between songs. I love doing that!
The spices on this chai are a little heavy in the clove department & could use more ginger, IMO, but otherwise it has been decent. There are other Chai’s I prefer, & many more out there left for me to try!


I just ordered three different chai’s from Chado…we’ll see how that goes! I like how different they can be!


I had this one a while back and I thought it was quite tasty. Then again, I haven’t really had too many Chai’s!

I’ve been on a chai binge this weekend! First it was starbucks yesterday, which is Tazo’s Chai. Then I made the Cha Yen Thai from Teavana, which is basically a coconut chai. The today after I drank this Chai I had another chai at the gig, which I think is Numi’s, & it was tasty too! I love Chai, & once I drink a cup of it, it’s like I want more & more. Hot or iced, it is delicious!

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!
