843 Tasting Notes
Yumyumyum! I haven’t had this tea for awhile! I forgot how cute this tea is with the teeny pink flower buds!
I’ve been working on crocheting teeny owl feet with a 2.5mm crochet hook. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=650489098299755&set=a.650489094966422.1073741828.632946396720692&type=1&theater for 2 owls I have already made.. missing feet and 2 more I have planned. I’m on my 3rd infusion and very yum still, despite the strawberry flavor faded.
I’m gonna finish this cup and give my hands a rest from crocheting tiny things and start cleaning rabbit turf. Oh boy..
White pu’er stuffed in an orange? Sign me up!
This thing is a mess! After unwrapping it, the skin of the orange was thin and brittle, flaking all over the place. You are supposed to steep the tea without the peel, but that is a tricky when the thing is falling apart!
Taste? White tea, floral with some orange notes. The flavor became very crisp and delicate at the end.
Full review and pictures of the experience on my blog, The Oolong Owl http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/white-puerh-mandarin-orange-from-new-mexico-tea-co-tea-review-and-experience/
At the end, I was wondering what else they can stuff pu’er in to..
Anyone wanna split an order of melon pu’er? Need like 60 of us, lol! http://www.amazon.com/Golden-Melon-Tuocha-Pu-erh-Tea/dp/B0002H8OUE
What the heck? Sip down? I didn’t know I only had one serving left.
now I need to do a Della Terra order soon, as I only got a little Lemon Chiffon left after this.
Anyways, I got hit in the nose in jiujitsu. I’m okay, though my nose just feels weird, not in pain or bruised. I’m consoling myself with this tasty creamy tea, iced, with sweet lemons. The other good thing was I got the guy back, he didn’t expect some girl to shoulder lock him, muhhahahaha!
Odd. Not many tealogs for this tea? This one won an award!
A summary of this tea could be “An Earl Grey white/green tea blend” however there’s much more going on, as there’s a bit of floral and sweetness from the white. Grassy, vegetal, and crisp flavors from the green, with a slight hit of bergamont. A very nice tea for peeps who love a light, citrus green!

WHOOOOOPS! I put this tea in for coldsteeping Saturday night. It’s now Monday afternoon. I totally forgot about it, and my tea got shuffled to the back of the fridge behind the potato salad and milk.
This is pretty good cold steeped – the oolong base is really different and the herby bite is strong. I was expecting this tea to come out weak, as I only used one bag for 16oz of cold steep, though maybe steeping for extra long helped. I should really get some gaba oolong on its own.
Sample coming from Meeka, which I got yesterday at our Steepster meet!
Was just 3 of us this time, but it was fun! In theory – hey, stash busting! But result was coming home with more tea. Yep.
Anyways, Queen Catherine. I saw a suggested steeping time on HS’ site of 212F for 4 to 5. I tasted at around 3.5 and was like “wahh, this is more than enough!” It hit the bitter side, little stronger than what I’d like, and I didn’t feel like adding any milk. However, after the cup cooling while I was dealing with emails, it smoothed out. Queen C is malty, bold and the bitterness reminds me of really strong/pure dark chocolate
Back to dealing with emails. Since I had no internet Friday and was busy all weekend I’m super backed up.
Sample sip down!
I had to cut this with a little Good Morning Sunshine as my sample (from a trade) leaked leaves a bit on the bottom of my tin. Yum! Nice and orangey and grassy!
So tired, but this tea is perking me up! Slept all weird as my tummy was angry I ate so much!
wahhh! So full! I went to a surprise birthday party for a friend of my husbands. It was also a potluck, so I made a huge thing of bacon kimbap and there was lots of thai food, bbq chicken, double chocolate brownies and cake! Gahh, so much food!
I was so thirsty too, all they had was booze and overpowering lemonaide. Finally back home and having some iced tea to wash down all the food. I might need a few more rounds of other teas to make me feel less bloated. Mmm, candy pineapple strawberry bubblegumy tea!
Sip down! Yeah, finished all my adagio samples finally!
I cold steeped this one overnight, and accidentally grabbed my Tfree tumbler instead of my water bottle on my way to jiujitsu. Totally had some weird looks drinking tea – most people drink coconut water there, other than water, and I’m looking spiffy with my tea tumbler and nice yellow green splotch on my white gi! Yeah, I wouldn’t get this tea again – I’m not too happy with most of Adagio’s teas. Not as fresh as other companies.
I had no internet all yesterday (thanks verizon) and finally have it back! I can tealog again! I did brazilian jiu jitsu last night and then this morning. Why don’t I just sleep at the gym? I was gone for less than 10 hours.
Anyways, I have an event to go to tonight which will have lots of delicious goodies, so I went to jitz to prepare of the mass amounts of calories I will go crazy on. However, I was dead tired this morning and I needed something to wake me up so I don’t look silly yawning during class while someone is choking me.
The kaimatcha, man, this stuff is good. This got me squeaky perky after a big frothy mug of it, simulating me as a “energetic morning person” when I’m a “don’t talk to me until I’ve had 2 cups of tea and after 10am” person. So buttery, fresh and easy to mix!
