1774 Tasting Notes

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1774 tasting notes

I finally got this one tasting the way that it should!
It’s not total amaze-balls, but it’s good! Finally! I over-leafed it and steeped it for 5 min.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Another cup from Sil!
I can taste the apples and cherries but not much of the caramel. The caramel is more in the smell than the flavour.

This is good, but not one I"d re-stock, mostly because it’s a green tea.

Thanks for the sample!


Haven’t seen this tea company before.. it looks like Beetlejuice & Burton to me. :D

drank L'Automne by Fauchon

Another cup of this – it’s so good, but not as good once it’s cooled. I just brewed it then I had to try and put the bear to bed, but then she refused to stay down and my cup was ruined for naught. :P

Now she’s watching Robin Hood (yes, at 2:44 AM), while I watch Supernatural, and we’re just winding down more… It’s not a bad life. She’ll most certainly sleep in until noon.


i will miss this one most when it’s gone of the fauchon teas. the others are nice but this one’s flavours appeal most to me AND it’s not a black base heh

This is gone and sorely missed!
Back to my shopping list for you!


I forgot to add that once it cooled, it really tasted like cinnamon bun.


we’ll need to keep an eye out for a sale and just pick up 4-6oz of the stuff lol


How bad is the shipping?


it’ll go through sharon so not terrible but 50$ = free shipping to her


That’s not bad. If we do it directly, it’s $15. And that sucks, but I’ve done that for H&S.


Yeah, I feel like you have to order a lot in order to justify the shipping.


directly. no silly. tea mule.


I ordered 2 oz of this blindly on BF because everyone seems to really enjoy it. I am so excited to try it!!


Haha Sil, I know, I know.


I thought you were losing your mule?
That package re-direct place in the US might be worth looking into though!

VariaTEA – I hope you enjoy it!


cavo – oh did i not update. things did not go according to plan..it is the suck for her, but on the upside, i have a tea mule still! woohoo!


This is such a good tea. We might have to do an order over here for some.


A group order would be awesome! We could split the shipping and just order whatever we want.


Sil – you didn’t! That really sucks for her, but… well we’re set up so that’s a partial win!

American Tea Room

We now offer 5.95 flat rate shipping to CANADA!!!!!


I just saw that yesterday and almost died!


OMG. That is dangerous to know.

drank Aniseed Balls by Bluebird Tea Co.

This one is odd. I’m not convinced that I like it yet. :P
Also, I’m not keen on the pre-added stevia. I always prefer to add my own sweetener (or not!)

drank Lemoncello by American Tea Room

Bright citrusy rooibos, I will miss you! (160)
And someday, eventually, I’ll make an order for American Tea Room.

I’m watching Supernatural 4×15 right now and, OMG. These brothers.

These brothers need to stop lying to each other. I get the impression that this will be a constant for the entire show.


spoilers, but yes, your feeling about the brothers would be correct. (but they do it for love!)


I’m nearly done Season 4 now and it’s making me crazy! I sorta read the ep descriptions for the next 3 and irresponsible me wants to dedicate the next 4 hours to finishing the season.

Responsible me has to get the child to bed at a decent hour and get some sleep myself.

We’ll see who wins!

<3 Brothers…

So I made this an hour or so ago and left it in my Timolino because I didn’t want to turn the kettle on more than once. (Now that I have the new one, it doesn’t plug into the stove for some reason, and we don’t have enough outlets so right now I’m using it on the kitchen counter, but I have to pack it up and put it on a shelf afterwards because our kitchen is TINY)

And I totally forgot what tea this was. But then I remembered and I did a happy little dance. It was driving me crazy.

I love oatmeal raisin cookies and I love this tea. Sadly, I love sugar and I’ve been going overboard with all the treats the past few days. I made Turkey Dinner™ but I didn’t expect people to show up with so many cookies and chips and caramel popcorn and turtles. :O Once it’s gone I won’t be so tempted but it’s just sitting there…

I just ate 3 cookies while I wrote this note. :P Cookies, with my cookie tea.


I ate a giant cannoli while I wrote my last tea review so I get being tempted when something delicious is around. Damn you delicious sweets!!

Josie Jade

Omg I can’t stop eating cookies! There’s way too many tempting leftovers in my house right now. And I’m the only one home which means no ones watching while I sneak cookies throughout the day! Thank god these cookies are almost gone. :)


Oh, I’d love a cannoli!
Also, yeah I really can’t wait until the cookies are gone and I can grow some willpower back…

It was 9pm and I was ready to doze off and I couldn’t have that, so time to drink some lovely Tiger Assam!

I’ve only got enough for 2 more cups, then I’ll have to decide what to do with my pretty tiger tin!

drank Northern Wilds by Verdant Tea
1774 tasting notes

Thank you BrewTeallySweet for sharing this with me! (162)

After drinking Big Red Robe tea all day I have no problem identifying the oolong in this blend. Then there’s mint and spices in each sip. It’s tasty but not something I would go out of my way to get.

Mmmm. This is all I’ve been drinking today, and all I’ll be drinking later too. (Oolong Saturday, anyone?) I brewed up a cup of Northern Wilds in my timolino for after this cup, and I didn’t realize it was made with a Big Red Robe oolong too. :P

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)
