drank Cinnamon Cookie Puer by Lupicia
1635 tasting notes

The first few sips: Hmm. This is ok . Dark. Rich. It’s decent.

The next few minutes: OMG. Something smells amazing. It’s like fresh baking. And like fancy whiskey and other dark earthy things. Tobacco. Gun oil.

After: It’s the tea? Oh wow. Now that it’s cooled I taste far more cinnamon and puerh. The mouthfeel does suggest a warm pastry. Excellent.

Will have to re-steep this one as well. Today may be a day of many resteeps and less variety but that’s ok. I want to experience this tea completely.

ETA: So far I love Lupicia. What don’t I love? Their 50g bags aren’t resealable. Also, they don’t ship to Canada and when I emailed to ask if they had any plans to change their international policies I got nothing. Nothing but heartbreak.

I find if you just put a rubber band around them after you open them, they are fine for the most part. Occasionally I transfer mine to tins though.

Why do tea companies love to hate on Canada?!?

TAKE MY MONEY!!

I had this in my basket on my last order, but I decided to be reasonable and took it out. Now I have nothing but regrets. :(
I love the smell of gun oil.

I have gotten the clips that Lupicia sells for much less at grocery stores before. It looks like Ikea and Amazon have them too. http://www.amazon.com/BEVARA-SEALING-ASSORTED-COLORS-SIZES/dp/B004HHATDU/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1397004788&sr=8-8&keywords=chip+clips
Personally I just use small binder clips. http://www.amazon.com/OfficemateOIC-Metallic-Binder-Assorted-31053/dp/B008OIB4AK/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1397005079&sr=8-8&keywords=binder+clips

And I’m in on the Lupicia spring! At the end of May I’ll be heading out to where they have a couple stores! I’m suuuuuuper excited. Forget visiting with family and friends, I’m going tea shopping!

Bio

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:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
