176 tasting notes

So I’ve been wanting to try the GM Sampler for a while now. However, yesterday I opened up the mailbox and SURPRISE! Ricky had sent me some tea! The package included the two Golden Moon teas that I wanted to try the most – and this was one of them. So this tasting note is dedicated to Ricky and his awesome generosity and his ability to make my day!

I was so excited about this that I forgot to smell the dry leaves. I made this with a tiny pinch of sugar and a little bit of 2% milk. Let me tell you guys, I love black tea and this one smells delicious! I can tell I’m going to like it and I haven’t even tasted it yet.

Wow… this one ranks pretty high on the Nom Scale. I know for sure I’ll be ordering more of this once I get the cash (although I’ve vowed not to order any tea during the month of April. I got my credit card bill yesterday and oh boy). Yes, it’s delicious all right. It’s very smooth and full-bodied, with notes of honey and possibly some nectar. Underneath everything is a very nice Ceylon. The aftertaste is sweet and it leaves me itching to take another sip.

So congrats, Ricky! You’ve made my day twice in a row! Thank you!

I know what you mean! I bought my new tea kettle with cash, but oooof! I am going to be cooking some pretty creative dinners until I get paid again!! And no more tea purchases until May! :)

This is a very good Ceylon – one of the very best! I love it.

SoccerMom

JacquelineM- May? You are going to need to do lots of swaps til May :))

JacquelineM

SoccerMom – Thankfully my cupboard is so full that I could go months without buying and still have lots to enjoy :) I literally can’t fit another thing in my shelf so this comes at a great time!

SoccerMom

Oh that’s good!

Ricky

Didn’t have any white persian melon, sorry!

Jacqueline, are Jackee, Thomas, Marco, Florence and Tiger still getting along or did someone get evicted from the garden!??!

JacquelineM

Ricky – I brought the Tiger to work to mind my tea stash – we’ve been having a MOUSE problem in the office!!!

Jackee, the Two Thomases (yes there are TWINS!) and Marco Polo are having a grand party now that A+D’s Earl Grey and especially Jasmine Green have entered the cabinet (she is one gal who likes to party!! Strains of Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? have been heard from the tea cabinet, and she installed a disco ball of all things!

Poor Florence – All she cares about is CHOCOLATE – she is simply drowning in chocolate chips (see my tasting note on ChocolatTEA). She is a changed woman!!

There is now a little area for the Samovar teas – they are a bit snobby and don’t attend the disco – they have yoga class.

Ricky

Oh my, seems everyone’s having a blast in the cupboard! Samovar teas are snobby, lolol. What about the Golden Moon peeps? Are they in their jacuzzi basket? Too cool to hangout with everyone else? Tsk tskk, those pesky GM people, thinking they all fancy in their silver suits and all.

JacquelineM

The GM peeps like the disco too! They are easy going and mingle with everyone. Not a bad egg in the bunch! I can’t wait to see what happens when the Dammann Freres come from France!!! Maybe Marco Polo will stop partying so much (very bad influence those wild A+D teas) and they will all join together to open a French tea room!! Bring a little dignity back, sheesh!

AmazonV

LOL now i’m tempted to peek in my cupboard and see what they’re all up to!

SoccerMom

Oh what fun! My tea cupboard could only be compared to a public high school or a college a big melting pot! My husband wants to know what we have been spiking our tea with!

JacquelineM

SoccerMom – LOL! Wait til we take our tea tins out at the Russian Tea Room and play with them like dolls! We’ll make them talk to each other by lifting the lids like a little mouth! He will hide under the table!!

(I won’t really do that in such a classy joint, but !!!)

SoccerMom

I like the part about Marco Polo and Dammann Freres. I think my Dammann Freres and Marco Polo are gay men! They both are so stylish and sophisticated and love to hang out with the ladies!

SoccerMom

Oh and they are both totally HOT!

JacquelineM

:) :) :) Thomas Sampson did once call Marco Polo “fruity” !!! I did lecture Thomas about that, btw!!

SoccerMom

I do recall your Thomas Sampson calling Marco Polo fruity now that you mention it! Shame on Thomas that big burly bully that he is!

SoccerMom

Ricky this had me totally LOL “Tsk tskk, those pesky GM people, thinking they all fancy in their silver suits and all.” Thanks for making me laugh. :)

Ricky

Haha, glad I could brighten your day =]
