This was a sadder sipdown! I really learned to appreciate it, but I resteeped it twice and savored it. Don’t need to replace it but maybe… Someday.

TWO resteeps. That’s about the limit. I nearly always do one.

Sipdown! I enjoyed the last of this in the afternoon as I’d had too much caffeine in the morning. It was good, but not one thing I need to replace.

I’ve been too busy to log all my tea, but this was a sipdown. A fantastic tea too! As soon as I get my coupon from Verdant I’m placing an order for 1oz! :O

I’m getting apple butter from this one. Wow. I didn’t have that before, but I brewed this western style. Gawd, this is so good.

This was the tea that I drank the most of today, but today was my daughter’s first birthday and she was getting over a cold so basically between that and the ongoing crowd of people, I wasn’t able to let go of her the whole day. So, I couldn’t really make a lot of tea. :| I’ll live – it was a great day overall, and the baby felt better during the evening so she could visit everyone else.

I can drink all the other teas later!

Happy Birthday Mini-Cavocorax!

This was in my Amoda box! I finally got around to reviewing it after packing half of it up for TerriHarpLady.

Now I almost wish I wasn’t sharing it!! Bahahahahah. (Not really though – I have some excellent samples coming my way).

I was surprised by this. It’s smooth, yet astringent in a good way, bold, and a touch smoky! I should have had this in the morning, but I’ll resteep it and stay up instead. It’s almost a little creamy too? Wow. I’m happy I gave the Amoda box a try!

400th note!

Woot! Grats on 400!

Terri HarpLady

Yay! I’m excited that I’ll get to try this! Thanks in advance!

Kittenna

I was surprised by this one too. Always nice to try a tasty unflavoured black! PS Sil, if you want some of this from me, you’re welcome to it.

Sil

Yes please lol

Robert Godden

Congrats on the 400th Note.

Cavocorax

Thanks! I just checked your website and the prices are very reasonable! Maybe I will be able to stock up on more of this one!

Robert Godden

Great to hear. Also, our US distributor now has a sample pack where you get them all.

Cavocorax

Is that through the teatra.de site as well?

Cavocorax

Thanks for letting me know!

Sil

Must. Update spreadsheet for kittenna. Gah going to forget lol

Kittenna

Didn’t I put it on there?

Sil

You did :)

It’s not Christmas (obvs), and it’s not a really great morning tea (in my head it’s more for afternoons or evenings), but I like it, and I want to have it now. I only have about 2-3 cups left! :O

No. Just, no. This isn’t for me.
Maybe it’s the green rooibos? There’s some notes running underneath that I don’t like at all.

So this is the Earl Grey! And it’s a sipdown! (Much needed too, I gotta say. My samples from Courtney came in yesterday and now I’m over 230, with a Butiki order coming in the next few weeks, and some more samples from Sil! Haha. BEST problems to have).

This is a pretty decent Earl Grey. It’s really not that strong but there is a tangy astringency at the end of each sip. It’s enjoyable, but I think I prefer EGC over regular EG’s. And yes, I know I could just ADD cream, but… I’m lazy? Also I guess I’m just used to drinking it plain.

drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas

I think this must be the chocomate. It HAS to be because the other tumbler has Teajo’s Earl Grey in it and those are different animals.

I don’t know anything about this tea as I’m reviewing it ninja style at work, writing the text in a draft email that I’ll copy/paste from when I can pop online. It really reminds me of coffee. It’s dark and strong, and there are a few cocoa notes in there, as well as something like bark. It makes me feel like I should wake up! I haven’t hard much to eat/drink this morning besides tea so I’ll slow down on finishing this until I get some lunch, otherwise I have a feeling this will make me feel heady and dizzy.

Thank you Sil for the sample!

Oh and I can’t wait until next week when I get set up in my new office with my own computer and I won’t have to worry about people walking by and looking at me on the internet. Don’t get me wrong guys, I do work really hard. But I do it so that I can take mental breaks whenever I want them. 

Profile

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)
