1693 Tasting Notes

So VariaTEA gave me some teas we split as well as a ton of awesome samples and I’m up at 154 teas now, but that’s cool. I’m very excited to try everything.

This one was good but too much chilli. Just, too much chili. Otherwise it’s very good, and thanks!

You’re welcome! Glad you (sorta) enjoyed it.

drank Kenya Obsidian by Butiki Teas
1693 tasting notes

Hmmm. I think there is something in the Kenyan teas which I do not really care for. This tea is ok, but malty/strong in a way that I’m not crazy about. Good to know! I’m happy I split this with Sil! (142)

Sil

…and that is why joint orders make me happy

Cavocorax

Yes! I can’t believe how well I’ve been doing for orders though! It’s ALMOST been a month.

Sil

awesome! :)

Sil

on that note..uh you have a bunch of teas here to pick up hahahaha

Cavocorax

I still just want to order for the sake of ordering though. Had to resist WP even though I still have plenty! :P /0\

Cavocorax

What…. wait? What? :O
LOL. Thank you.

Cavocorax

But I have NOTHING for you. Unless you want to try Sleeping Bear? Or some other WP?

Sil

dude..like i care. sharing is caring :) and yes i’d love to try that, but i’ll also be buying it in september because brendan and the teafairy made me :)

Cavocorax

Hahahhaha. <3

This is one of my favorite morning teas. I love it.
I finally got everything organized and I filled up the 8 mini tins I have from Davids (they were part of a sampler set?) so that I have 6 favorites, and 2 teas to try at the office! Otherwise, when am I going to drink Morning’s Journey?

And this tea deserves attention. It’s a little smokier than I remember too, but it’s balanced nicely with a little astringentness and bright fruity notes. YES.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Passion (full leaf) by Tazo
1693 tasting notes

We have this in the office and it’s cold-steeped and sugared, but I’m liking it. Yes. I’m not going to buy a tin, but I will take advantage of it being here (and ready to drink!)

So I’m at 145 teas and I don’t have any incoming orders and I’ve decided to just chill out. I’m drinking what I want, when I want! I’ll hit 100 eventually.

I bought this and it’s been sitting on my shelf for months, but I was craving it and it is just so delicious. I wish it tasted as good as it smells – CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY – but it’s still chocolate strawberry. It just won’t knock you over! I love it.

Sadly this makes me want to order more Lupcia when I still have a few more tins I haven’t even opened yet! /0\ RELAX, ME!

TeaBrat

Lupicia is awesome, just sayin’ :-P

Cavocorax

Yeah. They really are. :)

Lariel of Lórien

Agreed. (I just got that tea.)

Sil

haha silly cavo…

I like this tea. I really do. I had 3 cups of it today at work and it was just what I wanted. I tried to drink another tea in-between steeps but it intolerable (especially next to this beauty) and was dumped quite quickly. This one is just dark and rich, and slightly sweet, and fruity. Like a juicy plum? I definitely want more Mi Xian – whether from TTC or Butiki. It’s great.

drank Two Friends by Custom (Butiki)

Backlog!
I had this last night and I have to note that it is AMAZING. It really is much better than 3 Friends – I just really love the PTA base.

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)
