712 Tasting Notes

i mostly got this with my sister in mind. she always notices how i never buy any earl grey. it’s not cuz i don’t like it, but i just figure it’s kinda everywhere. why add more?
she loved it. the sample pouch was empty and gone in record time.

i have an oolong problem.
a delicious oolong problem.

i really dig this tea.
it’s perfect for my morning cup. especially on the days when i’m feeling a bit sullen and full of stillness on the inside. the quiet, cloudy mornings.
the radio on low and moving slow.

drank Smaug Tea by 52teas
712 tasting notes

wow definitely spicy in the cayenne pepper way. very exciting!
you guys probably already know how much i like the other smaug tea. i’m kinda a pusher of the stuff. but i’m one of the only people to like it which probably means i’m either a special snowflake, or totally cray cray. (place your bets now)
so you won’t be surprised to hear that i really like this smaug tea too! (yay finally 52teas and me found a happy meeting ground!) but i also kinda wish it had more lapsang. long live lapsang!
Thank you Scheherazade so much for sending me this! i’ve wanted to try it for so very long! and now my curiosity has finally been quenched!
i’m glad i have a few more cups worth to brew and knowing me i will probably treat them like leafy liquid gold.

drank Sencha Shin-ryoku by Den's Tea
712 tasting notes

this is gonna sound weird and just plain old wrong to a lot of people. but, ya know how some people just don’t like lapsang, or others maybe really can’t enjoy a dark puerh? well, i kinda suspect that maybe i don’t like senchas.
i’m almost embarrassed.
and i bet it means that one day, like a year from now, after more and more tea drinking and learning, i will suddenly become a sencha fanatic. but for now, mmmm…it’s not really my thing.
Thank you Shelley_Lorraine for teaching me new things and helping me challenge my preferences! always grateful to be challenged! always.


hey! you only write a few words and the most important one is spelled wrong? what’s the big idea? lol


Hahahaha woops!
I’m on my phone, excuses excuses!

drank Red Rock by Custom-Adagio Teas
712 tasting notes

woah i really LOVE the idea of drinking tea inspired by a specific landscape.
i would maybe recommend this one iced.
and/or mixed with some white wine haha!
thank you KallieBoo! this one is festive!

again. the tea smells great. but the flavor just ends up tasting like genmaicha to me.
i don’t get any of the more delicate flavors.
i think my tastebuds just aren’t sensitive enough. i’m just not that kind of tea drinker is all.
Thanks to KallieBoo! for the masterful variety of samples! i’ve had a blast!

NOW, let me ask does anyone happen to have these two teas so I can try them?!?! i really really want to try them!!
i emailed the company to see if they have any leftovers. i would swap or trade or pay or whatevs if anyone has a tin rattling around the back of their cupboard.
(my cupboard isn’t up to date but i’ll update it if this is a thing that might happen.)
so. yea. ok.

Douglas Fir Tip Tea

White Sage and Wild Mint Tea


Oh geez those teas look so interesting!

adagio breeze

Actually, I do! My sister gave me a tin of the sage & mint one for Christmas, which I still haven’t tried. I’m in the UK now but I should be in the US later this month/Sept.

Ummm wow okay i just received over 150 email notices from steepster hahah! like from the past 3 days all at once. it’s tea chaos!!

my della terra order came yesterday !! hello malt shop my old friend!
had to try the peanut butter fudge of course.
It’s a nice treat. Basically kinda like malt shop with a tinge of peanut butter added. And colored sprinkles? that’s cool. it can be my birthday tea. celebratory and stuff!
malt shop is still my current fave, but happy to add this to the heart pile.


birthday tea?


Haha me too on the emails! This morning I was like, WTF happened to my inbox?!


next week is my birthday. i tend to plan the entire week, or sometimes even the entire month around my birthday. i suppose i have a healthy ego. also, ‘treat yo self’!!


That’s awesome! Happy early birthday…. Mine was last month and I’m only just now getting a chance within the week to place my butiki birthday order lol
