drank Melon White Tea by Lupicia

Thanks Dexter for sending me a sample of this. I brewed it warm because I’m a sucker for punishment but I’ll ice the last little bit later. This is such a lovely tea. It’s really delicious and juicy.

To be honest though, I can’t remember what the difference is between this and the melon oolong, but with the oolong I can worry less about using hot water. I’m happy I was able to try this though! :D

drank Two Tigers by The Devotea
1766 tasting notes

Oh man, this is so strong! I ended up adding milk to it just so I could sip away at it, and it tastes like smoke, and ash, and dark black tea. I was ready to fall asleep so we’ll see how zippy this makes me!

Then it’s time for Orange is the New Black!

Thanks Sil! 225!!!

drank Japanese Cherry by Art of Tea

Sipdown! (226)
Thank you to 221tea for sending some of this on! I don’t crave green teas enough, but I finally sat down with this and quite enjoyed it. I’m getting cherry notes, and buttery spinach in the green and it’s balanced nice and now it’s gone. :O So, thank you! That’s always a good sign.

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!

:| I was busy working when I drank this and I can’t remember how it was.

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
1766 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)

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)
