Sipdown #14

Oh no! This tea became an unintended sipdown! Aww, I love this one. :( Can I even still count it as part of the original sipdown extravaganza if it’s been months since I last logged one? Well, I’m nothing if not a completionist. So #14 it is!

I used cooler water than usual to try to release less caffeine into the cup. This is mostly cantaloupe. The white tea is pretty calm, which could be attributed to age as much as to water temperature. I’m pretty sure these leaves are almost 2 years old. But it still tastes pretty freaking spectacular for being that old! Yet another reason to love this tea. It’s just delicious perfection. How did this win third place? It should have won first. And now to ruin my taste buds with garlicky cheese ravioli for lunch. :)

Flavors: Cantaloupe

165 °F / 73 °C 3 min, 30 sec

this IS a good one :)

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
