1774 Tasting Notes

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!


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


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


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


drink your other teas whatshesaid! haha but yes.. it’s a nice deal for trying out taiwanese teas to see if you like them


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…

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!

An adult version of cocoa? Yes please!

I wish I had tried this sooner, but I didin’t realize what it was. It’s delicious! Thank you, Shmiracles! It was nice and chocolately before I added milk. It was creamy and rich.

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

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!!!

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)
