442 tasting notes

I tried this one a few weeks ago and really liked it, so I was eager to brew it up again this morning and sip away. Today’s cups weren’t as lovely, but still were a good solid cuppa. This is a darker oolong, but not so dark as to make it undrinkable to my green-oolong loving soul. There are some really strong roasted notes in the first steep which require me to use sugar to balance them. Second steep though is an amazingly mellow delicious cup to sip on a dark and dreary afternoon like today.

Completely off topic, has anyone here heard of or tried the Canadian company Steeped Tea (http://www.steepedtea.com/)? I’ve been offered a consultant job with them and I’m looking for info from actual tea people before going any further.

Funny story… I saw that tea company on television last night! They were on Dragon’s Den. I missed most of it because they were the very first company but I’m pretty sure that they got an investment :) Neat!

They did get a deal – and it’s already closed and complete for them. It’s partly why I’m curious, I know they at least have solid investors.

They have contacted me about doing reviews of their tea on SororiTea Sisters.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
