1693 Tasting Notes

Thanks Sil for this one. I wonder if I overleafed it or oversteep it. It’s strong and a little bitter. That doesn’t sound like Martha. Martha is so kickass.

I wish she wasn’t so doe-eyed about the Doctor but I love that she became such a badass and moved on to live her own life instead of being in his shadow…

Glad I got to try this one. The caramel is a nice touch. Not my favourite fandom blend, but… they’re really hard to make good. I g ot something salty in the base too. Or maybe I’m just more attuned to some kind of salt taste because my oolong yesterday was also super salty. :O

Poor Martha. She was definitely underrated for a long time!

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

I just finished this cup and and had to come to Steepster to remove it from my cupboard, but for some reason, I stubbornly refuse to talk about it right now., but I’m logging it because I’m on this page anyway… (231)

So, hi guys? It was good.

Yay! This is the first of the Victoria’s teas that I really enjoyed. (232) Thanks VariaTEA It was sweet raspberry and fruit and I fnished the entire cup with dinner before I had a chance to properly log it. But it was good. :)

I haven’t tried this one yet but each time I smell it, it smells good. Glad you finally got one you enjoyed :)

Thank you Sil for the tea you’ve so delightful and accurately described as looking like rabbit turds. (233)

Well, believe it or not I actually enjoyed it. It was a dark and roasty oolong and the ginger was strong but not overwhelming. The roasty/ginger was actually a pretty good combo.

I’m happy I tried it, but I doubt I’d buy it. I’m not that much a fan of ginger.

drank Jessie's Tea by DAVIDsTEA

I finished this up this evening. Thank you VariaTEA for supplementing my stash as it’s one I really enjoy when I crave it, but not one I’d want more than 20g of. Creamy lavender though…. it’s super relaxing sometimes. (234)

drank Irish Breakfast by Butiki Teas
1693 tasting notes

I’m not usually a breakfast blend sorta girl, preferring to go right for m y Tiger Assam for the roughest of mornings, but I am surrounded by samples that are demanding attention. So here goes!

y eyes are still lidded and heavy because I didn’t sleep enough the past 2 days, but I don’t think I can blame the tea for that. It’s trying it’s best.

It’s really dark and malty, and I think I’m getting bread notes from it as well. It’s an interesting mix! I suspect it’ll taste better once it cools a bit. I might just add a splash of milk to it to help it cool so I can get more wake-up-juice in me STAT! (235)

drank Framboise Chocolat by Lupicia
1693 tasting notes

Thanks Dexter for letting me try this one! I’ve been experimenting with Lupicia teas and this was one I was interested in. (237)

It’s smells lightly like raspberry, but the flavouring is quite light. When I sip it, I taste the black base, then bright raspberry following by a little dark chocolate. It’s really quite muted though. I enjoy it but wish it were stronger, so I’m not sure I’d actually order this, not when I love the banane chocolat so much more. :) But now I know so I’m happy!

Another sample from Sil! (238)

I’m drinking this one while I catch up on my backlogging from earlier. It’s a really nice oolong – it’s darker instead of greener, which is what I like, and it has a bit of caramel sweetness to it that I am a fan of. I could see myself drinking this one fairly frequently.

Sil

glad you liked it

(239) This was my first cup of the day, and I had it courtesy of Sil! Thanks!

It was delicious, even though I ended up steeping it for 8 minutes while I had a diaper disaster to deal with. It was dark and malty and sweet. I would definitely like to try this again some time!

TheTeaFairy

Diaper disaster says it all, lol.

carol who

TheTeaFairy

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)
