349 tasting notes

I received this one from tattooed_tea. I am really starting to wish there were some DAVIDs locations in the states…ok Ohio. Opening up the package the dry leaf reminds me of a chinese black or an ceylon. I was excited to get this one because I have never sampled a nepalese black. Reminds me a little bit of a chinese black because there’s that starchy flavor like baked potato. Pretty smooth and it may have to be added to the permanent collection.

Yes Ohio would be nice ;) Chicago will be getting three in November, there’s one in NYC, SanFran and I believe somewhere in the NW.

I have received this in a swap with BTVSGal. This is my first offering from Asha. It’s everything you would expect from a good golden Yunnan. A little malty, a little starchy like fresh cut french fries. It’s quite good.

If there is one tea that get me going anytime it’s the good doctor’s imperial nectar. Which is good cause to my dismay back to work today. It’s been a great couple of days chilling with the new Mr. Ezekiel Martin who was born Monday 8lbs 1.9 oz and 21inches long. So of course a toast is in order :)

Having this at the hospital. Seems to be a trend for this tea. I’m having the decaf version, I didn’t see a reason to create a new listing for this one. Don’t worry I’m not sick. I’m here with my wife getting ready to give birth. So while she’s sleeping waiting for the petocin to kick in I might as well write about some tea :) I have to tell you this is just a nice, smooth, no frills black bagged tea. I would say it’s rather delightful. I think this is better than the other option of lipton in the courtesy room. I like this one a lot…it could be a long day.

Picked this one up on my recent excursion to Wooster. The long straggly black leaves are enticing and I love a good Irish Breakfast…Tea and actual Irish Breakfast. A malty aroma eminates…and then. Eh I have to say this is a soft cookie Irish breakfast. There should be a lot brightness to it. It’s fairly smooth but have that subtle peppery bite that you would expect from Irish breakfast.

This is my first Milk Oolong type tea. Thanks to Teavivre for allowing me to sample this tea. I already love Oolongs for their nutty and buttery characteristic. So I was excited to try this one. I have a pouch of Verde au Lait that I acquired in a trade and it fell short of the goal. I made it at work and shared with my co-worker who I am making a tea lover as well. A pale yellow liquor typical with most green oolongs. I’ve been going nuts a bit with getting a week ahead on music logs since the baby will be here any day, and I’ve been re-inventing our broadcast clocks…tea is much needed. This is great! Milky? I am not really getting a milky flavor from this tea. Buttery? Absolutely! I feel like I’m in the theater enjoying a huge bucket of popcorn with double butter. For dinner last night I made garlic lime shrimp in a butter sauce. I think this would make a great butter substitute in cooking. Four tasty pots were made with the leaves.

Pardon my absence from the Steepsterverse. Work schedule has been kinda nutty as of late. Has a nice malty cocoa like flavor. Reminds me a lot of the Gonfu black from Teavivre. Very smooth. Somewhat grainy like whole wheat bread. Another great offering from Teavivre

Picked this one up at a natural food store while my wife was getting her hair done for a wedding I was DJing. Enjoying it this morning. Not bad for a dollar an ounce. Slightly smokey. Like gunpowder should be. Not bad

Picked this one up on a recent trip into the mall. I guess it’s part of the interesting dichotomy about Teavana is you switch a few ingredients…and you have a different Teavana tea. For instance take the Cha Yen Thai. Subtract the black tea and pineapple and add apple and voila Zinginber Ginger. However this is not a bad thing cause the Cha Yen is hands down one of my favorite teas. Enjoying it after father’s day lunch with my wife and daughter. MMMMM baby back ribs and tea. Yes a good day indeed.
