1693 Tasting Notes

Thanks VariaTEA for letting me try these teas again. I was actually disappointed with this as it didn’t really taste like much. I prefer the S’mores, or the Strawberry versions a lot more!

Still, that’s good to know! (210)

VariaTEA

I prefer the others as well. This one was quite the let down.

Cavocorax

Yeah. Sorry you got stuck with so much of it! :O At least you know to stay away?

VariaTEA

Haha I am not too worried. Eventually I will be able to sell it or trade it off

I drank this today using my free tea from joining the Frequent Steepers club at DAVIDS, and asked that they make it a hot latte.

OMG. Really. I immediately walked back in and bought 100g of this beauty and I plan to make tons of lattes with it.

Preparation

VariaTEA

Really? I would have never thought of having this as a latte.

Cavocorax

Mmm. Vanilla, chocolate,and sasparilla…. They all go well with milk!

OMGsrsly

Oh, I have to try that! Tomorrow, though. :)

Hannah F.

Oh yum!

You know, every time I see your name, I have to look closer. There’s a band called Corvus Corax. I haven’t listened to them in a while, but I think I will now.

Sil

huh..who would have thought..

This is one of the many surprise teas that Sil sent me, buried in a box full of tins from Davids as a silly birthday present (which I love!)

I’m drinking this so I don’t have to add it to my cupboard. I have a lot to add. I’ve had a few people visit me this week and they all brought tea! YAY!

So this is a really nice black tea. I really am going to have to try Capital Teas at some point, once I make a bit of a dent in my unflavoured black collection! I’m tasting an interesting spice but it’s hard to describe what it is. Malt? Cinnamon? Nutmeg? I should resteep it for longer to see if I can tease those chocolate notes out!

Thanks Sil!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

VariaTEA gave me this because I wanted to fall in love with these genmaicha’s again and I’m drinking it now so that I don’t have to log it into my cupboard! Ha!

I am really enjoying this. It’s warm, sweet, marshmallowy goodness. SO GOOD. So thank you for letting me try it again VariaTEA!

VariaTEA

Anytime :)

They really need to reblend this one so I can try it! :P

drank Ma Passion by Nina's Paris
1693 tasting notes

I drank this today courtesy of VariaTEA and our pre-arranged tea box drops – the stealthiest swap ever! It was a nice passionfruit blend that I enjoyed, but it didn’t wow me enough to make me want more. Still, I’m very happy to have tried it because there are lots of Nina’s teas I enjoy and I need some way to narrow it down!

Thanks Courtney for allowing me to steal a small sample of this from your stash! it was just as dark and rich and chocolatey as I imagined and I can totally see how this is the perfect base for the Chocolate Chip tea.

OMG. Just. It’s so good.

Thanks! (157)

Cameron B.

I ordered a sample of this earlier today and I’m pretty excited about it. :D

drank Orange Kidd by Lupicia

Here’s my sipdown for the evening! I drank it hot and was a little disappointed with it. It definitely works better iced! (158) I’m happy to have tried it though!

Backlog: (cleaning up old teas from my cupboard that are long gone!)
I didn’t like the rose in this. It just wasn’t for me, although ocassionally rose is done well.) Thanks anyway, Sil!

Sil

a rose tea by any name would still be a rose tea i don’t wanna drink :)

Backlog: Here’s another one I drank several iced cups of, and enjoyed quite a bit! It didn’t blow my mind, but the price was reasonable and it makes a decent summer tea!

Backlog: I cold-brewed it but it was too tart/bitter for me to drink unless I added in more sugar than I would prefer to drink. Too bad! Maybe I need to experiment with another sample!

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)
