uh..sipdown. i had this something like 17 hours ago. it was a good start to my day. i feel really bad because i have no idea what to write about it. I think it was fairly average…nothing spectacular but an over all decent version. i apologise tao…you deserve a better review.

Milk, some honey… golden assam tea… this was very good! it wasn’t however, what I expected. The fruity aspect was something I’ve never experienced in a black tea. A floral sort of fruity. Cherry perhaps? that’s all I can really pinpoint at the moment. Would have to try it again to really “get it”.
Not sure I’d actually buy any for myself though.

Another pleasant tea that I drank this morning from sil.
I can’t really much about it, but it I remember that I enjoyed it, as I was getting ready to run out the front door.

One of my tea samples. I like Assam a lot, so I wanted to try this one.

It has that malty scent. Which was present more in the dry leaves. The flavour is on the mild side. There is a bit fruity sweetness as well.

Fairly average Assam. Not overly malty but not bitter or dry. An average good quality black tea. No need to replace it as I am loving the Assams from Golden Tips more these days, so into the swap box this goes. Followed this up with Tao’s Golden Monkey. I feel pretty much the same about that one as I did on my original tasting note. It’s good and it’s smooth, but lighter than some other GMs and there are those I prefer over that one.

Starting the day of sitting around after rushing around this morning getting the hubby ready to go to Zurich this evening. Yeah, last minute (found out on Friday) work trip so he has to have a suit. Which he never wears. So it was a morning of him trying on pants and figuring out what doesn’t fit him any more. Then figuring out what shirts and ties to go with. And what suitcases we had that would fit everything for a 4 day overseas trip. I really wish they would give him some more notice for stuff like this. I would have ditched my Florida trip on Thursday for a Switzerland trip but the airfare 2 days in advance is a little unreasonable without a corporate budget…

All the travel emergencies having been disposed of, truffles for the tea party being dipped and completed, laundry being pretty much done, we now settle into an aquatic horror themed day. Deep Rising because it was on, which set the tone for the day. We’ll have to follow up with Ghost Ship and Deep Blue Sea. Have to. Sometimes these things simply must be done. :) And I’m not gonna complain – that means more tea that will be downed today!


sounds like it’ll be a great day!

Single Origin Teas

Where in Florida will you be?


We’ll be in Kissimmee, close to the Disney entrance. Mom & Aunt V & I. Just yesterday I was trying to figure if there would be time for us to ask to see your tea plants. :) I’ll shoot you an email!


I remember this one being a bit fruity!


Might have to try again with different steeping. I’m pretty sure I’ve tried a few times with average results but maybe not hit the sweet spot yet. :)


Ah. I bought a cup in store so that could be the difference!

FINALLY got my Tao Tea order yesterday. After over a month of complications that is.
But they let me pick out a couple free samples…and not only that but the samples were HUGE.
They gave me an oolong sample that was 52g and a black tea sample that was 26g. Crazy big.
Might have actually been worth all the disappointment and stress this order caused me over the last month and a bit. xD
This was not a free sample, but a tea I had wanted to try from them for a while. This was the second tea i tried in my order.
Steeped it for about three minutes. A little bit too bold, but it was still good. Very malty. Not too much sweetness, mainly just malt.
Next time I am going to steep it for like two minutes and maybe it will be less in-your-face. XD But i still really liked it! I do love a malty tea! ^^

Flavors: Malt


52g is bigger than an actual purchase from many vendors. Nice haul!


Yay! So glad you got it.

My initial review of this one mentioned its lightness and brightness, and we’ll stick with that, but if you leaf it a little heavier…the lights intensify to those nasty, wicked LED headlights that other drivers insist on shining in my eyes before they are entirely open on my morning commute.

(Leaf it. The rest of the world would scratch their heads at that verb, but I am secure that you know exactly what I am talking about. Think we need to compile a Steepster glossary?)
