451 tasting notes

So I survived the day. And tomorrow is Friday eve, and then it’s Friday proper, and that means I get to hide and sleep and just disappear over the weekend, and if only I could disappear every other week for an entire week my life would feel so much more manageable. Best place ever: in bed. best. Place. ever.

Somehow, this tea was a bit disappointing tonight. I read sil’s tasting note on it and she said that this tea was good, although it likely wouldn’t brew consistent cups, and she may be right (that’s right, I said you’re right, haha!). Perhaps not—I’ve enjoyed all my cups of it thus far, it’s just that tonight’s cup left something to be desired. In the past, I didn’t have quite the same level of temptation to start keychanging the cup up with milk and/or sugar, but this cup was kind of watery and a bit sad. Still not bad though, and it only got better as it cooled. Perhaps I’ll cold-brew it next.

Oh, and I forgot to mention this, but in my state of anxiety at work yesterday, I managed to leave my carry mug behind at my desk, and because I was still all wound up this morning, didn’t take tea into work at all. And I felt this immediate rush of affection for my carry mug as soon as I saw it on my desk because, like, it (and the tea it contained, obviously) saw me through such a rough day yesterday, and omg the drinking experience is just amazing. The mesh lid! just get one, guys!

OMGsrsly

I like the depth of the steeping basket! So many of them are really shallow, so your tea doesn’t really get completely under water. That’s nice!

Yes. The basket is deep for sure. I am forever perplexed as to why anyone would tolerate a shallow steeping basket actually. If it were up to me, the ideal basket would be nearly as deep as the mug itself. This mug’s mesh lid is also great to drink out of.

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
