1677 Tasting Notes

Thanks Sil for sharing this with me. Someone must have had a particularly mouth-watering review because it was on my wishlist.

So my first cup of this was knocked over by the child and spilled all over my computer desk. Thankfully both laptops were saved! Yikes. There are seriously 2 safe spots in the entire house – she can reach everything!!!

My second cup is much better; I could drink it! It’s sweet and smokey and just a little bitter. I’ll have to try a lower temperature for the last bit, but I enjoyed trying this!
Thanks again!

I had a cup of this today and it was good but not as good as TRIPLE CHOCOLATE should be. Maybe it’s just me. I sent the last of it off to Shadowfall for a second opinion. :)

Anna

Agreed! This is what Triple Chocolate should be like (if I’m in Sweden, this is the birthday cake I ask for): http://shop.textalk.se/se/article.php?id=29794&art=17419370

OMGsrsly

Ooo. That’s a pretty cake!

Anna

It tastes even better than it looks – now we have to find a tea to match, though. Cavo, are you Triple Choc Tea Odyssey team leader?

Cavocorax

Wait, you want me to find the best triple chocolately things I can find? Haha. sounds like the BEST job.

Anna

Yes. Only the best for you because <3.

Shadowfall

Lol. I’ll do my best for a good review. XD

drank Assam Calcutta Auction by Lupicia

Thanks Sil! I’ve enjoyed so many flavoured teas from Lupicia, but I hadn’t actually considered try their straight teas. I’m happy for the chance to now!

It tastes like bread and honey! Wow. That’s actually the best tea I could have grabbed for breakfast! It’s also an easier tea to drink- less kicking me in the face with boldness etc. As it cool, it becomes a little bitter, but it’s still very tasty. I just better finish it up quickly!

Another little sipdown! I really enjoyed this actually! I got vanilla and spice and the lapacho wasn’t overbearing — I could drink it! (unlike the one from HI which was just super barky). :)

OMG. I really love this. I really, really do. I guess I’m not drinking anything else tonight because I want to resteep it several times. It’s dark and rich, and chocolatey. SO GOOD.

Sipdown! (211)

I gotta say that this is the best Monk’s Blend I’ve had. That’s not saying as much as I’d like because I’m not convinced I LIKE Monk’s blend… but so far this is the best. It’s got some nice sweet flavours, but it’s not bitter. :D

Thanks VariaTEA!

Thank you Sil! This was a really great assam to start my day with. It was slightly tangy and sharp, but evened out into sweetness and fruit. It’s a very easy cup to drink; I’m really enjoying it, and would consider placing an order some time!

Sil

stick to 25g samples if you do! it’s free shipping and then you don’t have huge quantities!

Cavocorax

That’s awesome! :D Is that just for the first order you can do that?

Sil

nope. always and forever. so totally the best time ever. :)

Sil

whatshesaid

Haha yeah, I know I have to focus on my mass quantities of samples before July…gahhh

Last sipdown for the night! (218)
I added milk to this to make it extra special and then downed half of it before I realized it was bedtime. Ok, bedtime…

drank Assam Halmari by The Devotea

Sil knows I’m experimenting with unflavoured teas, so she’s been super helpful sending me tons of teas to experiment with. Thank you! :D (219)

This was a nice assam – slightly malty, with a little bit of tobacco – but oh, so smooth. I didn’t even need to add milk or anything to it! I need to drink a few more of my loose samples down, and then it’s time to dive into my Lord Petersham bag!

This was a nice iced tea. The lime and the ginger were amazing. My kid drank a good 6 oz of it in 2 minutes so that’s a good sign. If I ordered from these guys again, I’d snag more!

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)
