1765 Tasting Notes

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!

I can taste pear! Crisp, ripe pear!
Sadly I can also taste rooibos. Lots of woodsy rooibos. :| Enjoyable overall but I wouldn’t want more.

Thanks VariaTEA for letting me try it out though!

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

Here’s another one I bought today that I totally didn’t need, but… was curious about? This is actually the second steep because I gave the first to a friend, but it was still spot-on – just less sweet. I think 30g is enough though. It’ll be perfect when I’m craving something sweet!

I had a cup of this earlier today as we sat in our icy-cold basement and I wanted to warm up a bit. ;P (Best complaints for the summer?) It was really good, considering root beer should be cold. I could taste the sasparilla and other spices – but they weren’t overwhelming.

Yes. So good. I might (might?) get a tin of this for the summer! The hype was right!

Thanks Sil for this sample. I enjoyed it and it helped me decide to order from TTC.

I drank the last of this with Lot 306 to see if I could notice any differences, but to be honest, I didn’t. They were both so simliar and I couldn’t quit describe the differences. I think until my palette becomes better refined I’m better served buying whichever one is cheaper! :D

I didn’t think the lots had different prices unless they are in fact different teas. Ill have to pay attention next time. :)

Cavocorax

I didn’t actually check? :p But I did now. And Lot 152 is long gone.
so I guess it’s reassuring that they’re similar if I wanted to reorder from a different lot than what I sampled!

I LOVE this tea. It’s so good!
I’m down to 152 teas after a few unsatisfactory sipdowns so I’m ending the night with this delight! I’ll have to cold-steep the leaves for tomorrow. :D

sherapop

I hadn’t thought of cold-steeping spent leaves. Great idea!

VariaTEA

This was my delightful tea after not-so-great teas today as well.

Sil

I wanna catch up! I have cupboard envy!

You aren’t far off given where you started

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)
