290 Tasting Notes


sip down 8 I think
when I grabbed the bag I was leary, I thought that I didnt like this the first time & then I sipped it & it was so much yummier than I remember. I checked this note & rating and realized I did really like this, but I still think it’s yummier than before. I want more.
I let it cool too much & it got really bitter

sip down 7
I guess technically it’s not a sip down because I have enough for a tiny mug.
as I started sipping this & got the bitterness I remembered I wanted to cold brew this one & forgot. oops!
way over steeped this, getting strong black licorice flavours from it this time

Hi there! I haven’t been on this site in a long time, and I’m seeing all this “sip down” commentary. What is a “sip down” tea?


heh i feel like i’m always the one seeing this question. Sipdown is just a small way to express that you’ve come to the end of a tea in your cupboard. you’re having your last cup and it will be removed from your cupboard until you buy more (if you choose to). Some of us have mini sipdowns when you finish off one bag of a tea you might have more of…or sample sipdowns for some folks who don’t put sample sizes into their cupboards but still track it. Mostly it’s just a fun way to announce that you’ve finished up a tea! :)

nowhere near as good as before, but it was in a zip loc baggie.
I’d love to get my hands on more of this.

also sipped down something right after this that was unmarked. was a black, looked like it had peppermint & cinnamon in it, but was next to flavorless

another stored poorly
it tasted old & very rooibos. no rating onthis because of the age & storage conditions. this is also one I had bought from iheartteas a long time ago

sip down 2

not gonna rate this because it smelt so foul I couldn’t even drink it.
I bought this a long time ago from iheartteas & it was stored in less than optimal conditions.

there’s this nasty stomach bug going around, it started in my house last Monday when my youngest got it, I ended up having it Thursday & felt like I was dying & managed to get it again on Saturday, but with cramps so bad I was in tears. woke up this morning & my youngest started puking & just as my oldest is ready to leave for school her cramps start & now she’s got it. to top it off my sitter had to fly home for a funeral, so I had to miss work again today.

so sip down day it is. Still yummy, even though it’s a lil older.

woah, the dry leaves smell AMAZING!
Smells like a mug full of tropical fruit while steeping.
this tastes very tropical, with a green taste. for some reason the first thing that came to mind with the green taste was aloe Vera, no idea why though.
once steeped, it’s fruity & floral smelling, kind of like perfume.

really like this, it would probably be amazing iced too.

woooo hoooo finally got to try this one. I couldn’t resist buying it, it’s so different.

It’s a very light tea, in colour & taste. Very refreshing, slightly peachy & vegetal tasting. Really liking this one!

I didn’t get to sit & enjoy this, but this would be great with lunch!

I tried this quite some time ago, when I made my mom detour 2 hours to get to a David’s. This was her to go cup.

I ended up buying a 50g bag later one because it was soo good.
Recently I have been drinking 2 cups of pu’erh in the mornings & I am now on my second 50g bag of it. Not only cause it’s pu’erh. But because it really does taste delicious.

Tart, citrus, earthy from the pu’erh. So good!
