1771 Tasting Notes


This is one of my favorite morning teas. I love it.
I finally got everything organized and I filled up the 8 mini tins I have from Davids (they were part of a sampler set?) so that I have 6 favorites, and 2 teas to try at the office! Otherwise, when am I going to drink Morning’s Journey?

And this tea deserves attention. It’s a little smokier than I remember too, but it’s balanced nicely with a little astringentness and bright fruity notes. YES.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

We have this in the office and it’s cold-steeped and sugared, but I’m liking it. Yes. I’m not going to buy a tin, but I will take advantage of it being here (and ready to drink!)

So I’m at 145 teas and I don’t have any incoming orders and I’ve decided to just chill out. I’m drinking what I want, when I want! I’ll hit 100 eventually.

I bought this and it’s been sitting on my shelf for months, but I was craving it and it is just so delicious. I wish it tasted as good as it smells – CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY – but it’s still chocolate strawberry. It just won’t knock you over! I love it.

Sadly this makes me want to order more Lupcia when I still have a few more tins I haven’t even opened yet! /0\ RELAX, ME!


Lupicia is awesome, just sayin’ :-P


Yeah. They really are. :)

I like this tea. I really do. I had 3 cups of it today at work and it was just what I wanted. I tried to drink another tea in-between steeps but it intolerable (especially next to this beauty) and was dumped quite quickly. This one is just dark and rich, and slightly sweet, and fruity. Like a juicy plum? I definitely want more Mi Xian – whether from TTC or Butiki. It’s great.

I had this last night and I have to note that it is AMAZING. It really is much better than 3 Friends – I just really love the PTA base.

This is one of the ones I got in yesterday’s order!

And I need something strong. So strong. Current events and everyone discussing everything repeatedly, everywhere I go, is wearing me down and I’m frazzled and down and hiding on the 3DS forums on Reddit because THAT seems safe, so far.

I don’t drink enough breakfast teas to appreciate every nuance of this, but I do appreciate how bold and malty it is. And I am detecting citrus-y notes as well. I like it. I let it sit for 20 minutes before taking my first sip, and even though it had cooled, it still tastes great, without any bitterness.

Yes. I’m satisfied with this. :)

I’m sipping this and working on the website at work, and watching/listening to Supernatural while I work and it is just good times all around. :)

This is bright and buttery. It’s nice.

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.


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!

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)
