1681 tasting notes

I decided today that I needed to drink Checkmate! Usually I just start boiling water and then sorta stare at everything wondering how I am supposed to choose, but not today. I svaoured this cup, had a nap, and then am off to resteep it! It’s so lightly nutty and flavorful. It really really tastes like white tea to me now – I guess I’m slowly figuring this stuff out.

Besides my Amoda tea order, which I don’t think I’ll get until April because I subscribed 2 days after the March deadline, I have NO MORE TEA on the way. Everything I have now, is what I have. So I feel more like I can just relax and enjoy it instead of, “OMG I better pick something I can sipdown! Why do I have all the tea?”

(I know. Life is so rough.)

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:

76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
