1413 Tasting Notes

drank Key Lime Pie by LuxBerry Tea
1413 tasting notes

Thanks to MissB for sending a few cups of this my way.

It’s a nice black that really does taste like Key Lime Pie, or, what I think Key Lime Pie tastes like – lemon meringue but with lime? It’s black and smooth and bright and very enjoyable.

Can’t wait to drink the rest of it!

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
1413 tasting notes

I am getting low on this but I am less worried about that because a) I have people in Toronto who want to do a group order and b) Lupicia replied to my email to say that they WILL ship to Canada but you have to place your order first and then they’ll get back to you with the shipping cost.

So this wonderful, light, fruity oolong can be sipped down, but NOT forgotten. :D

You have no idea how excited I am about them shipping to Canada! omg!

Working on a shared order right now…. it is so exciting. The hard part is trying to narrow what I want to a reasonable number…

Thank you Steeped and Infused!
This was a free sample included in my last order. I’m not sure it’s on the website yet.

This is a really tasty and smooth coconut black tea. It’s creamy and almost buttery with the coconut. The almond nuts really enhance the flavour too. It’s good!

Amariel

Mmmm, coconut…

This sipdown (176) was brought to you in part by the lovely ifjuly who surprised me with a bunch of fine samples in February!

And this is a nice, smooth, sweet tea. Yum. A little bready, too?
Not sure how else to describe it. I’m cold and shivery and need to focus on drinking this tea to warm up instead of analyzing while it cools!

Thanks again for letting me try this.

Yes! I’m back to drinking Tiger Tea! I kept my old tin so now I can divide my tea up and drink half at home and half work and never be separated from this rough and lovely beast.

It’s Friday today!
(which means, be careful who you follow on tumblr. :O)

Sil

drank Banane Chocolate by Lupicia

Someone is making me mad on the internet. Go figure.

But, omg, I forgot I made this tea, even though it was just 5 minutes ago and the first sip was so delicious and sweet that it made EVERYTHING OK.

/phew/

keychange

Do you need us to go and deliver that person an internet roundhouse kick?

Cavocorax

Ahahahahah.

oddree

Teach them to mess with ppl hopped up on tea !!!

TheTeaFairy

Courtney

Cavocorax

I shall keep all of you in mind next time… DUN DUN DUN…. someone is annoying on the internet.

drank Hepburn by Nina's Paris
1413 tasting notes

Oh! It’s creamy orange? I immediately tasted creamy fruit but couldn’t narrow it down further. Now that I’ve cheated and read the description my taste buds are all, yes, yes I can taste orange. Suggestible traitors, aren’t they?

It really seems obviously orange now though. Mmmmm… It’s like drinking a liquid Campino! (those hard candies…. om nom nom). Yes, I’m totally digging this now. I wouldn’t crave it all the time, but it hits the spot for orange if you don’t want to be blasted with cinnamon-orange.

Thank you Sil for passing this sample on to me! (177)

Sami Kelsh

Oh man, I haven’t had campino in years! Those things are lush.

whatshesaid

I’ve got a sample of this to try! My last Nina’s sample. You’re making me want to dig it out….

Courtney

I’ve got this one en route!

Marzipan

I have one on the way too, can’t wait!

keychange

wishlist!

Cavocorax

Dig it out! Then you can add it to your shopping list with everyone else. :P

VariaTEA

This is one of the few Nina’s teas I have not tried due to the orange. You do make it sound pretty delicious though.

This is good, but not as good as I expect from a “Fancy French Tea”™. I get a little bit of fruit and a bit of cream, and it’s nice, but not zomg, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for sharing Sil! I’m still happy I had a chance to see what this was all about.

Goodbye, goodbye you slimy green tea of deceptive sweetness. (169)
It was tasty, but I can no longer handle the green sludge on my cup staring at me while I drink it. I’ve got one cup left and I’m passing it on to someone who may enjoy it more than I did.

Dropped my rating.

Sil

NOT ME!

Cavocorax

Hahaha. Would I do that to you?
I was thinking the mystery box depending who it is going to next. It’s just ONE cup! Someone will give it a good home.

Profile

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)
