1681 Tasting Notes

81

I’m looking at placing another fandom Adagio order so I thought I would enjoy another cup of this to remind me of the blends that I enjoy. I may need to restock this one. It’s smooth and fruity and relaxing.

Sil

warn me if you do!

OMGsrsly

I really like the blueberry Tardis blend… hint, hint… :D

Cavocorax

Haha – OMGsrsly – I thought you had your own tea mule for the West Coast! :P

OMGsrsly

Yes, but she just did a HUGE Adiago order. I suppose I could see if I could tempt her into another. :)

And another surprise one from Janelle! This was goood, but not memorable. At least I drank it while I was messaging Shadowfall back and forth and before I knew it the cup was gone an the review wasn’t up. Hmm.

Ah well. It was pleasant, but it’s not one you can get any more… (yes it is)

Roswell Strange

Are you sure you can’t get it anymore? It’s still listed on the site, and my local store sells it still.

Cavocorax

Oh, whoops! Looks like I just made a wrong assumption there! I had a few samples that were older teas and since I’d never heard of this I thought it was old too. :p

Roswell Strange

I don’t think it’s a very popular blend from David’s (or at least not one commonly discussed), so I guess I can see why it’s forgettable. I don’t think I’ll ever personally try it just because of the raisins…

ifjuly

it’s gone? dang. the only david’s tea i still like. :(

ifjuly

oh, now i read the comments. phew.

Cavocorax

Sorry about that – I couldn’t edit it on my phone but I’m on my computer now. :D

Sipdown – oh yeah! (152)

I’m happy Janelle was able to send me a little of this. I was curious about how it would taste, but it’s not really my thing. I’m not huge into licorice/fennel/pepper. Intersting, but I’ll pass.

So I’m happy I didn’t end up with 2 oz of it!

Nope. This tea does not pass Go. This tea does NOT collect $200.

It’s sorta bland and very rooibos-y. I don’t regret snagging it from BrewTEALLY sweet though. Now I know that it’s a bad one.

Angrboda

Has it in fact been sent to prison, then?

I missed this! I’m happy I grabbed 39g more of this the other day. Pistachio Cream was ok, but this is much better.

This is good! I nearly thought it was a white tea due to the light flavour and the low steep temp, but… oolong it is!

It’s a very nice one too. I’m on my second steep. I like it but not for all the time. I’m not very good at describing this – it’s so mild, but sweet and fruity. I smell apricot.

I’m drinking this today basically because cats are jerks. Mine woke me up 5 times this morning by meowing in the hallway. Every time I came out she ran into our room for purrs and cuddles, and then an hour later she was at it again.

So I picked this tea. I bet Tigers are jerks too.

Kaylee

My cat’s a jerk too. I finally caved and bought an electric mat to put in front of my bedroom door. I feel terribly guilty about it, but it worked miracles overnight. I hear tell there are air blasters which have about the same effect.

Dexter

LOL They may be jerks but we love them anyway…

Terri HarpLady

We have 2 cats, & by ‘we’ I mean Leif & Ari. Gizmo, Leif’s cat, is fairly innocuous. Squishy, on the other hand, likes to do things to intentionally piss me off. I do not allow cats in my bedroom, ever, because I can’t stand to have cat hair on me, & for some reason cats always want to piss on my pillow. I guess they want to mark my room as their territory (none of the current cats have ever actually done that, but previous ones have). So neither of our cats have ever been in my room, although Squishy tries, regularly, to get in there. Not ever gonna happen!

Cavocorax

Terri – that sounds like quite the challenge. Are they boy cats? I’ve never had to worry about her peeing, thankfully!

And she is totally allowed in our room – we even sleep with the door open (so the cat and the toddler can both wander in), but the cat mist be playing hard to get or something as she cries outside for attention. (Stupid cat – just come in and cuddle! )

Cavocorax

I love those names, by the way.
My cat is Mika, aka Meeks, or Mika Mikerson the Third if she’s bring particularly royal.

Ana

Your cat sounds like my cat. I don’t think I’ve heard anything more true than ‘All cats are jerks’.

Stephanie

adorable little jerks! :)

Kaylee

Terri – If it makes you feel any better I had a cat pee on my feet while I was sleeping once. I was sleeping over at a friend’s house. The cat made it clear that I was not welcome to invade his space.

Stephanie – His cuteness is the only reason my cat hasn’t been kicked out on his furry behind a dozen times over. Also the fact that he’s an awesome cuddler.

On a related note, has anyone seen My Cat From Hell? I think it’s a TLC show, but it’s also on Netflix now.

Anna

This might be the most entertaining comment thread ever. More evil cat stories, pleeeaseeeeehh.

Ana

A good book is ‘How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You’.

Also my cat peed on my mom’s duffel bag that she lent me. It probably smelled like her dog and so my cat was marking his territory. Another time though he got mad that I took away his food (he overeats sometimes) and peed where his food goes.

sherapop

Cats rule; dogs drool.

Sil

pops in to look at the cat conversation..leaves before she offends people :)

Anna

Sil, does that mean you’re a CAT?!

Sil

cats and i agree to not get along. my dad used to tease the neighbourhood…uh NM lol so yeah… cats and i. we don’t mix. except for the one cat that followed me up the mountain that one time…

Terri HarpLady

Once upon a time I had a friend named Suz who raised silver persians. She really wanted to give me one of her kittens, which were very expensive. I told her no thanks because I wear black to gigs all the time & the silver fur would show on my clothes. The truth is, I didn’t want a cat. She had farmed one of her cats out for stud service, & a gal who raised black smoke persians owed her a pick of the litter. Next thing you know, Suz gives me a black smoke kitten for my birthday, who I named Opal. I didn’t really want a cat, but what do you say? “Thank You”. Opal was beautiful & dumb as a post. Except she was smart enough to figure out how to get out the doggy door before I had a chance to have her spayed. End of part I

Terri HarpLady

Part II
Opal had a litter of kittens, & we found homes for 4 of them, but Leif begged to keep Gizmo, so we did. Opal disappeared.
Ari’s cat Squishy is a cat she got for her son, but then she moved into an apartment that didn’t allow cats, so squishy moved in with me. Now Ari & Ky live at home too, & so really, I guess he’s Ky’s cat.

Terri HarpLady

Part III
Gizmo is a boy. Squishy is a girl. I don’t hate cats. I’m just not into them. They tend to irritate me, I can feel their hair touching me. The cats I have now don’t pee on my things, but in the past I’ve had cats that did. I’m a dog lover, especially big dogs. I don’t have a dog right now, but I love dogs. They are awesome.

OMGsrsly

My cat keeps head butting me off my pillow at night… He hooks his paws over the bed rail things, and heaves. And his name is Princess Shadow. He came with Shadow, and I added the Princess! :)

Anna

Gizmo is a great name. (I love Gremlins. I would totally have a Mogwai for a pet.)

Thank you Sil for the sample! (155)
I steeped it up by mistake but I’m not regretting it! It’s fruity and sweet and has a nice base.

I’m so sleepy. I need MOAR tea to wake up. Or I’ll drink another coffee after this cup because it’s only 8:30 and we’ll probably be up to 2:30.

This is a great cup.

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)
