888 tasting notes

Backlog – I had a cup of this yesterday at my graduation! Yay I am finally done! It feels good but also weird..I don’t think reality has fully hit me yet either, so I imagine when it does, I will be freaked out that I’m not going back to school. But yes, it was a decent day, the weather cooperated and was sunny all day. Happy I could have at least one cup of this, I also took a tea bag of the green tea they had, but didn’t get a chance to make it. Oh well, I find mint bagged teas to be a safe bet at public events, and this one was not bad. Fresh and calming on a busy day. I steeped it for probably around 5 minutes or less, and carried it around campus until it was done haha.

Oh! I also had a random loose leaf rooibos at dinner in some authentic ‘blueberry tea’ as a dessert. They brewed it in the same gravity steeper I have, as my parents got mine at that restaurant for Christmas. So that was pretty neat, although I have no idea how long it steeped for and I think they massively overleafed. It still tasted good anyways, and I don’t feel like making a tasting note for an unknown rooibos, so I’ll put it in this note.

ETA – I also should add a thanks to everyone on Steepster and to tea in general. Tea was an integral part to my success this year, it kept me sane and healthier, and less stressed :) and reading all your tasting notes helped me discover more teas this year and as a result, I rarely drink alcohol anymore and just enjoy tea that much more. This really helped my studies as I wasn’t going out and instead would just relax at home when I could with a cup of tea. Thanks everyone for your contribution to me getting my degree, and I appreciate all your notes and support!!

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

MissLena’s rating system
(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
