403 tasting notes

Bold notes of Assam and Ceylon, that mix well. Wasn’t sure how strong the Assam was going to be, so I only steeped it four minutes, but could have gone longer. It’s not bitter.

I spent the day with my aunt and family, and showed her the Tea Desire in our local mall. She picked up a matte orange Bee House teapot (two cups or so), and purchased me a tea as a present. Any I wanted, but I am terrible at making decisions on the spot, so I pointed at this one. Even though I’ve been meaning to try their Japanese Cherry. Ahwell.

This one is still nice!

There used to be a Tea Desire in Kelowna that I’d visit often, but then it got replaced by Teaopia. So I’m glad you still have yours (not that I have anything against Teaopia but they do charge a bit more).

Yeah, there’s one I can get to—but they are more expensive.

And Tea Desire has more variety, I’ve found. Much more than is listed on their site.

Bio

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, currently in the third year of university, majoring in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot or gaiwan. It’s the highlight of a good day.

My notes are pretty disjointed because I’m a fairly absent-minded individual, and I also keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications.

And I’m a Doctor Who fanatic (Jon Pertwee, if you were wondering).

“But you should never turn down tea, when it’s offered. It’s impolite, and impoliteness is how wars start.” ~Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann
