2955 Tasting Notes

Now for a really bold cup! This is a real contrast to the Yunnan I drank first, almost harsh in comparison, but not in a bad way. To me this is not a malty tea, but more of a deep fruity flavor, like blackberries, with a brightness to it.

My verdant tea bundle box came! Oh…where to begin?

First tea of the day, so smooth, I love the thick tongue sensation of this tea. It’s an earthy sweet potato type taste, with a little black pepper thrown in. A really nice start to my day, beautifully re-steepable.

I’m also taking this in my thermal cup to sip during my gig. YUM!
I deserve another treat, right? :)

So happy to see the return of this blend! Of course, I immediately placed an order! I’m drinking this on my way to my gig this morning. I deserve a treat, right?

i should have gotten you to send me a SMALL sample of this one. I pretty much hate floral and bergamot, but i wonder how the black balances this out. We’ll have to do another swap later hahaha

Good morning Steepster! I should be sleeping, but I have a gig at noon, so I’m starting my day with a cup of Damn Fine Tea. Bold, Beautiful, & I’ll be taking the resteep to the bubble bath (because I drank the first cup too fast)

drank Peach Melba by Lupicia
2955 tasting notes

I threw this in my purse sometimes yesterday afternoon to bring to Tony’s, & a little while ago I remembered it was there. I tend to love anything that tastes like Peaches, & most of the people I’ve traded with have read that in my bio & sent me every Peach tea under the Sun. I probably need to update my bio to take that Peach bit out, because I’ve learned that most Peach teas disappoint. Usually the flavor is fake tasting, or it’s more of an under-ripe peach flavor. I’m also not a huge fan of rooibos.

This Peach Melba, which is not a true melba, since there are no raspberries in it, is non-the-less probably my favorite rooibos blend to date :) In the bag, it smells wonderfully peachy & juicy, mouthwatering really. In the cup it’s not quite so, but it is still very tasty & comforting, with a mild peachy taste, a creamy feel, & I have to say, the flavors meld nicely. I think maybe Peach is a complimentary mix with Rooibos.

Thanks to Sil for sending me this sample (& many more). :D

drank Tazo Chai by Tazo

I meant to bring several teas with me to Tony’s last night, but got sidetracked, so digging through his cupboard, I found this. It’s pretty tasty, in my opinion. I wish I had some almond milk or creamer with me.

Such a nice contrast to the Premium Taiwanese Assam. They are just so perfectly different from each other! This was also resteeps beautifully!

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!
