1772 Tasting Notes


It’s TOO tart for me today, which is too bad because I REALLY wanted something that would help wake me up. (133)

Also – 133? Wow. I must have had a few sneaky sipdowns that I don’t remember! That’s AWESOME.


You are beating me too now?! I gotta get back on my Sipdown game.

I’m kicking both your asses ;)


Hahah. Nice! We’re all racing down to the bottom.(Or at least under100)


Sigh, and I’m still somewhere over 200. ;)


Well you DID just have a giant tea box pass your way! :O


“Just” in that it hung around for ages and I tried to drink the teas but my heart just wasn’t in it. But I did take a few, and I really like all the ones I grabbed!

Sipdown (136)
My head is full of stupid puns, and so when I see this pun I always think Hong Yum and I know I said this before, but there it is again. You can’t change my brain, I guess.

This was good though. Very juicy and dark and strong. Not as good as Wild Mountain teas, but good.

This totally tastes how it promises and it’s really totally good, except I’m not big on hazelnut unless they’re in that one candy, whose name escapes me. But, OMG. Yes. Butterscotch and haelnut. NAILED IT.


Sounds really good! I love hazelnut.


I was shocked how much I liked this one!!

I’m getting lower on this one, but I’m still really enjoying it. I want to place an Adagio order eventually so I"m working on sipping a few of these ones down so I can make room. Maybe 8 more cups of this to go? Easy!

You really have to over leaf it and steep it at 175 for it to work!

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
1772 tasting notes

I finally opened my bag of this, now that summer is nearly over and I’ve wasted my best nights with it.
But it’s great. So great. Now that I’m drinking it, I’ll try to enjoy it as much as I can before the snow falls because I’m sure I won’t be in the mood for it later.

Also, why is this one SO amazing, when the grape one just falls a little flat? It smells OMG so freakin’ good, but tastes bitter and uninteresting.


this is good cold brewed!

Yes. I’m making excruciatingly slow progress on my sipdowns! I think most of my 1-2 cup samples are decaf so they end up sitting for a long time…

Anyway, I think this was one of the best Night Vale teas, but I’m not sure I could drink 3 oz of it. Maybe another 1 oz tin would be ok, but it just a decent tea and nothing spectacular.

drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas

Goodbye, sweet delicious tea! (142)
I needed a cup of chocolate and this was perfect. Sadly, I couldn’t drink it without sugar which I’m not crazy about, but it was AMAZING with a little added in.

(145) I found this buried in my flavoured tea bin last night, as I was tidying, and stuffed it in my purse to finish off today. It’s so good, and doesn’t deserve to waste away forgotten in the bottom of a bin.

It’s one of the few non-black teas that I consistently enjoy. That’s really saying something! And it’s so freaking hot/muggy/awful outside right now that a lighter tea like this seems preferable to my typical black.

drank Cinnamon Somersault by T2
1772 tasting notes

This was weird, and I didn’t care for it. I couldn’t figure it out at the time, but I guess it was the orange zest that threw it off? That or the cinnamon itself. Either way, even with milk I couldn’t finish it. Sorry! VariaTea!


Haha don’t be sorry. I wasn’t a fan either. I was hoping you would have better luck with it but clearly that’s wasn’t the case. I am sorry you couldn’t get through it.

I needed silliness last night so I went for a cup of this instead of a ‘proper tea.’ It’s good; probably one of the best teas I’ve had from Adagio. It might even be better than Tardis bc this isn’t an EG!

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)
