3003 Tasting Notes

Thank you to Angel & Teavivre for this sample!
4G + test tube steeper (5 – 6oz) @ 185F X 30/60/90/120seconds
Rich & green, with butter & chestnut. Each successive steep became a little greener, a little thicker, with a slight growing bitterness, but not in a bad way.
A lovely Dragon well!

This is my favorite ‘Caravan’ type tea. There is just enough smoke from the lapsang, just enough sweetness from the dark oolong, just enough punch from the Assam, & just enough earthiness from the shu puerh, to make a nicely blend that was the perfect savory side to my ridiculously decadent breakfast. If you want to see what I had:

Thank you Sil for including this tea in the BBBBox!
This is a tasty tea, with a richness to it that I really enjoyed while putting together breakfast.
1 T + 8oz X 3/5min.
Both the steep & the resteep were very satisfying, & have that Yunnan mouth thickness, & I can drink them on an empty stomach without getting sick. Yay!

Sil

Awesome! If you ever want sit more to drink just let me know :)

I drank a cup of this a few hours ago, along with the resteep.
Now I think I’ll have another cup for dessert, with Maple, of course!

TeaBrat

hmm. I was just eyeing this on Verdant’s site. It looks good!

Terri HarpLady

It’s tasty!

Sil

I heart vanilla citrus spice more. But this one is a herbal….and also tasty

Skulleigh

Oh, that blend sounds so interesting! I hope they still have it when my spending fast ends!

Terri HarpLady

I’ll have to agree, vanilla citrus spice is preferred, but when I want more tea without additional caffeine, this one is pretty nice.

This is such a lovely tea.
1T + 8oz X 3/5min
I do believe I like it better following Verdant’s suggested western parameters, but I wanted to try it this way as well. It is still wonderful, although the 5 min steep was a little weak.
Next time I’ll go back to the more leaf, less time mode, because that’s where this tea really shines.

It’s not fair for me to be reviewing this tea now, at 9pm, when I drank it 12 hours ago.
5G + 4oz (rinse) X 15/30/45/60/75/90 seconds, then 2/3/4/5 minutes.
Some of the steeps were drank on their own, others were combined in a larger cup.
All in all, it is a delicious tea, richly flavored with Malty goodness.
That’s all I got!

40 oz is a lot of tea – especially seeing you reviewed three other teas. Jealous? Yes. ;)

Terri HarpLady

A lot tea, drank over the course of the entire morning…does that help? ;)

K S

I’d like to say yes, but I feel lucky when I get a total of 40 oz over the entire day. Most days it is half that. I thought being retired meant I got to sit around all day drinking tea. Turns out, not so much. Sad Tea-Rex.

Terri HarpLady

Some days I drink more than others :\

Meh…
Thanks to Sil for sharing anyway.
Sipdown!

Another sipdown from Sil & Smiracles
I picked this one because I recognized the name of the character from teen wolf, & most of the other adagio fandom blends left in the box are characters from god knows what.
I didn’t really care much for this, but that’s really because most of the time I don’t care much for cherry flavored things. Still worth trying.

Another sample from Sil & Schmiracles.
Another sipdown.
I used to drink a lot of gunpowder green & mint together. It’s very refreshing, especially iced. I’ve never tried it with jasmine added, & since I like jasmine sometimes, it’s a nice addition. Not something I’d want to keep in my collection, but nice to try.

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!
