734 tasting notes

hey wow look i had a new tea last night!
i’ve kinda been in beer world instead of tea world lately. i started treating beer like i treat tea and became really focused on ONLY tasting beers i’ve never had before. and before i knew it i had reached my 500th unique beer tasted.

here is a picture of my 500th, appropriately a coffee stout which are my favorite:

(and if for some crazy reason you wanna see more of my beer pictures: https://untappd.com/user/shmiracles/photos)

i think i’ve had some bad rooibos in my past. i kinda suspect that davids tea rooibos is less than good. and i say that beacuse i SUPER enjoyed this cup! but before i drank it, i procrastinated so much! like i was dreading the rooibos haha. well, i learned my lesson.
thanks so much for this Scheherazade it really was a very tasty cup.
i savored it as i read my kindle before bed. classic.

I procrastinate teas I’m afraid of not liking too, hahaha! Congrats on 500 beers tasted! :P

Awesome that you’re into microbrew too! I haven’t tried that one yet but I absolutely love their Rosée d’hibiscus.

drinking this again today. ordered another 100g to fill a tin. it’s one i bought for my sister really. it’s easy to drink but not a lot of personality. next time i brew this i’m gonna do half lala lemmon half super ginger. i think it’s the most brilliant idea i’ve had so far today. (but the day is still young!)

oh snap did you hear?! James Spader?! he’s gonna be Ultron!
wow. i love that dude. (Spader, not Ultron. Ultron is an evil cyborg not-dude.)
seriously the marvel franchise really has their freakin casting machine amazingly perfected. (except Natalie Portman but whatevs)

there is really no need to say anything about this tea because what is not to love. so easy to enjoy. so easy.

now all i need is for Martin Donovan’s career to be resurrected.

So then you’re going to watch this new series they have starting tonight (sep 23) with James Spader in it?

Shmiracles

oh the new series doesn’t have James Spader. Spader is playing Ultron in the Avengers 2 movie coming out in 2015. but OMG am i fucking stoked for Joss Whedon’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ that premiers tomorrow!!
MOAR COULSON!! always more Coulson. alwaaaaaays!

Nxtdoor

Pretty sure he’s in it. Omg, I haven’t seen him in forever. He looks so different (to me)

So whatd you think of SHEILD, Schmir ?

Shmiracles

chrine! i seriously loved it. SERIOUSLY! i totes love Phil.
Agent Phil Coulson has the combat skills and dry humor of John Watson, and the expansive knowledge and awkward adorable one liners of Rupert Giles. i can’t wait for tonight’s episode.
and they have the ‘behind the scenes’ little 5 min episode things on-line and Clark Gregg the actor is seriously a hilarious goofball. you can see him clearly nerding out just by the look on his face.
the whole thing is pretty cool.

=) I liked it quite a bit too. So far, it’s the only show this year that’s gotten an auto-record for the year on the DVR from the premiere. I’m not like a superfollower of all the background stuff, tho I have seen some of it. But I’ve like things like Heroes and Fringe so was pleasantly surprised and happy to have enjoyed it that much.

Shmiracles

yay so glad you had as much fun as i did!
i too watched the first seasons of Heroes, and all of Fringe, though more in a binge type viewing usually.
i’m a lover of scifi for sure. and for all it’s potential tiny faults i think Joss Whedon can’t lose in my book. Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Doctor Horrible, even Dollhouse. i’ve enjoyed them all.

Shmiracles

since i’m blabbing about tv, and can’t seem to stop once i get started!!
i will also say that i LOVED Arrow’s first season, and it’s the only other show i’m obsessing over along with Agents.
the Red Hood is gonna be born this season i’m sure, and also Summer Glau is going to play one of this season’s villans. (also we are getting Flash) the action in this show blows all others away. every hand to hand combat scene is a dance. i’m not a violent person at all but i watched a big fight scene is episode 21 on repeat for a week i swear. gosh! i love arrows!
haha

Hmm.. My tv taste is eclectic, tho I’m prone to primetime soaps. I haven’t watched any of those others. But I did watch maybe first 4-5+ of Arrow last year.

(You’re the first other person I’ve found who is watching it. lol)

haha! i stole this tea bag from a posh house my boyfriend was dog sitting at.
he is giving up his dog walking business but if he happens to ever watch these two dogs again i will totally ask him to nab a few more bags for me.
believe it or not i’m not really a chai person or a rose/floral person, and yet, the mellow smoothness of this tea is so great i absolutely love it!

Sounds right up my alley :)

my sister made a big pot of this last night. i said “pick anything from the swap box!” and she giggled at several of the options as she went through the pile.
i really loved this tea. delicious cream grey with none if the caffeine guilt!
i’m writing this from my phone and i’ve been too busy to really be able to spend quality time on steepster. but i still visit and browse your entries everyday! even if it is just for a few minutes.
i would really like to have a tea like this in my permanent stash. i’m not afraid of the decafs.
thank you so much TastyBrew! i really enjoyed this sample!

blerg. i really thought i’d like this more. i mean, i really just thought it would be better.
i mean it’s fine. i just thought i would love it or something. like the herbal cocomint of theirs i drank so fast. but after all is said and done, i like the La La Lemon i ordered more than this one. boring review.
monday moanday.

Lariel

Did you try it cold?

Shmiracles

ah, good call Lariel.
i usually don’t like iced tea, but this one might be the best exception. definitely worth a try :) thanks for the advice!

thank you for the carnie treat without the sticky fingers and face CHAroma!
