1774 Tasting Notes


I spent the last few days reading this awesome domestic!Dean fic that is so slow burn that it takes about 10 hours of reading before you get a kiss, but it’s still warm and fuzzy and full of happily ever afters. (http://miss-annthropic.livejournal.com/85169.html) Spoilers? :P Whatever. The Winchesters deserve happiness.

I drank this tea to celebrate how happy I was with that story, and it brewed up pretty decently today. I mostly taste caramel today!

drank Frozen Green Tea by Tim Hortons

Yeah, I’m not sure what I was thinking with this. It really tasted like 90% honey, with a little bit of green tea syrup mixeed in ice. Which is ok, if that’s what you like, but I don’t need all that sugar and honey. Now I know for sure!


Oh man, I tasted that, it was putrid to me

drank Orange Kidd by Lupicia

TK and I enjoyed this with dinner – I steeped it hot, then dumped it into our travel mugs and we wandered outside to enjoy it. And we did enjoy it! It was creamy orange vanilla – I mean – how can you not like that? Unless you don’t like orange…

It still tastes a little like rooibos but overall it’s really quite nice. I’d probably want more of this for enjoying in the summer!

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris

Sipdown! Saddest sipdown!
I drank this last night, and again today and it was really disappointing. It was ok, but it was more like a 75 than a 96. What’s going on with me and my precious Nina’s Japon? :|

Also, if anyone wants to listen to a playlist that’ll get them moving around (great for cleaning your house), this is what we listend to while we painted the shop today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKgKmMLH8yk#t=238


I found that with my last cup. I think I need to take a wee break from this tea and come back to it in a month or so.


That playlist is insane!! Love it


Woohoo! Glad you’re enjoying it! He has a few others but I haven’t ran through them all yet. I’m looking forward to it!

And Courtney – hopefully that’s all I need to! I have an unopened pouch of Je T’Aime which is similar. Maybe that will give me more of a spark!

Sorry. I’m not sure if Shmiracles or VariaTEA sent me this because both have sent me a ton of Adagio teas, and BOTH have reviewed this. Huh. Sorry? But thank you to whoever it was. This tea is actually really great. Really great! i didn’t expect much, but it’s light and creamy, and minty and just delightful. I think I can actually taste the barky notes in the white tea and that grounds it a little bit, but it’s nice and sweet!

And I really need to watch Rise of the Guardians. That’s a good reminder! (168)


Ahh this is one of my favourite Adagio blends! Running low, and definitely will restock :)
((running low of this tea also means that all the snowbud is gone and I’m left with peppermint and cream. Dang.))

Fun fact: we’re all drinking from the same Jack Frost package haha. I sent quite a bit to both, and looks like they’re passing the torch! Glad to hear you enjoyed it :)


Hahah. That’s really awesome. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!


I may have given you a tiny bit but I am not sure. I used to put all the info into my spreadsheet but I stopped adding to that months ago so now I have no way of tracking who I send what to. Either way, I am glad you enjoyed the tea. This is one I would actually consider grabbing from Adagio. Thank you jump62359 for introducing me to it.

drank Queen's Choice by Riston
1774 tasting notes

Yep. This tastes bitter to me too. I don’t dig it so I’m dumping the last half out of my cup and filling it up with Whispering Pine’s North Winds! (which was waiting in reserve in my timolino!)

Thanks Sil for letting me try it out! It sounded like it SHOULD be good.


hmmmm i’ll have to get this to kittenna and raritea and see if what we bought is somehow different than what we tasted at the festival…if so, i’m going to be annoyed…

I read two different Destiel stories today called "Shut Up (Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is) which is sorta an odd thing. but maybe they were both based on a prompt because they were both stories about Dean & Cas waking up in Vegas married. The first was short, predicatable and boring, while the second was supposed to be PWP but turned out to be 99% fluff. It was so adorable.

And so, with that in mind, I had to drink Destiel tea!

I snagged this one from the SSTTB because it sounded good, and it came in a little tin and I need to make room in that box for all the teas I wanted to share! I’m happy I grabbed it. It’s not really spicy, but it is chocolately, and tasty with milk!

drank The Glow (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1774 tasting notes

Thanks VariaTEA! (180)

So apparently cinnamon and rose go together quite nicely! And I’m getting apple from this somehow, so it reminds me of apple pie! I’m happy I got to try this, but I doubt I’d ever get more as it’s not something I’d crave too often. Still – yum!

THIS is how you start your day. :) Thanks Sil!

When I took my first sip, I thought this was struck by how different it was from my other TTC tea – Sun Moon Lake 147. This was darker, thicker, and reminded me somewhat of Teavivre’s Bailin Gong Fu tea. With subsequent sips and I can taste fruit like apricot or peach. It smells malty and delicious too. After reading the description, I was able to pick up on the cinnamon notes, but the menthol has eluded me. That’s ok. :)

I’m currently rating this at 80 because it’s really good, but not quite at the point where I’ll be daydreaming about it later. At least, I haven’t yet. :P

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)
