1774 Tasting Notes

drank Two Friends by Custom (Butiki)

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.

drank Shiva's Breakfast by Butiki Teas
1774 tasting notes

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.

Ok. I bought too much of this tea. I don’t like EG THAT much I guess, and I have 3 different tins to choose from. :P I’m basically sipping this each day because I’m getting close to it’s 1 year anniversary and I want to rotate my stock!

I made it iced today!

drank Garrus by Custom-Adagio Teas

Goodbye Garrus! I feel like I should miss you more, but it’s the chai, baby, the chai. More chocolate would have held my interest, but I have no regrets.

Now I have slightly more room on my shelf for my next Adagio purchase… (I’m looking at you, Burgler Brew!!!)


One of youngest’s favorite characters…


He was my fav char in the series, although it’s a hard decision. There were so many GOOD characters: interesting in different ways.

Sipdown (149)
I was sipping this all day while we moved the last of our stuff back into the suite. Eeesh. It was such a long day but this was such a beauiful tea. Thanks Sil I didn’t get a chance to log it while I made it but it was great and quite tolerant to abuse. (Sorry tea – I kept steeping it for 8-10 minutes…)

Sipdown! I’m at 150. :)
I guess it’s pretty easy to do when you actually stop ordering teas! Now, to see if I can join Sil in the 100’s… (and then order more, most likely – hahaha)

Anyway, thank you Sil and/or VariaTEA for letting me try this. Sorry I couldn’t remember exactly who it was that gave me the cup! It is really relaxing though. I almost feel like I should have a sore throat or a cold or something to fully appreciate this, but it’s really just what I need to end this day! Still got more moving/unpacking stuff to do tomorrow, so goodnight Steepsterites!

Hah, I’m at 155 now. I would like to be under 100 too, let’s do it! :P


This was from Sil. I am just the delivery person.


According to my cupboard I’m at 219! Yikes!


Right- that’s what it was VariaTEA!
And we CAN DO IT! Especially if we focus on the little/easy sipdowns!

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea
1774 tasting notes

Even though I finished this now, I hadn’t reviewed this because I was undecided while I sipped it.

I drank some of it cold-steeped earlier today with dinner, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t memorable enough. I tried to have a goodnight cup of this but my daughter pushed into me and I ended up spilling the cup down the stove and into all the burners. Le sigh. :p

So now I’m making chamomile to relax!


Oh no. That is very unfortunate. At least you got to enjoy one of the two cups.


Yeah, totally! I feel like I’ve had too many disaster tea posts! I really got to stop knocking things over…

drank Mulberry White Tea by RiverTea
1774 tasting notes

I haven’t actually had this tea since I got it from my shared order with Sil and WHAT A FOOL AM I. It’s so good. Delicious. And I bet I’d like it iced as well. Maybe I’ll cold steep these leaves after I’m done this cup…

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)
