drank Assam by Joseph Wesley Black Tea

I thought i’d try this one out today. Monday morning and i wanted something i was fairly certain i’d appreciate. Turns out, i was right. This is a bolder assam, not very malty – more on the sweet side. No bitterness, just a relatively smooth cup. Better review of this one when i can have it in a mug instead of my travel mug :)

drank Electric Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

let me begin by saying that i pretty much hate mate. I thought i’d try this though because i Do like lemonade. I tried this one as a cold brew and it’s not half bad. I’m not sure if the long brewing process helped smooth out the mate or what, but this was highly unexpected and one of the reasons i still try things i don’t like – both in tea and in “food.” it’s not really lemony to me – mostly strawberry like and something i can’t place. But as a cold brew with a little sweetner, not half bad.

I didn’t get much strawberry out of this, but I was surprised by how much I liked it. Not a big mate person.


yep. mate for mate haters lol

i am enjoying this offering from dragon tea house. Ir’s not as rich as some of the other versions that i’ve tried but it’s a decent cup and one that i’ll enjoy finishing up.

i tried this one again as a hot brew and it was really tasty – especially since i drank most of it after it had cooled down to room temp. heh. A really nice creamy strawberry rhubarb cup of tea for the summer.


Something I’ll need to purchase once I use up some more teas :)

Another one that i need to finish up sooner, rather than later. Not much new to say about this one – it’s limey and tasty but also starting to fade…

Another tea from this morning. Not bad, but nothing like previous harvests. I’ll be happy when this is eventually finished up.

i’ve had this a few times now and it’s just not the same tea that it was. I’m wondering if my taste buds have shifted or if this is just a new harvest from the first time i bought it. Will have to keep playing with it, but if it remains this way, i’m likely to pass this on to someone else as i just don’t love it like i used to.


When did you buy this one? I have one fr last July I love. I bought some in last December. I don’t think I tried it


spreadhseet says i picked this up in december :)


Ok. I should compare them sometime. So many times older harvests are better new ones :(


please do! i’m curious if it’s me or the tea lol


A year ago, this was my experience: http://steepster.com/looseTman/posts/257693. However, I don’t know when the very generous Scribbles purchased it.

July 2014, I purchased 250g of this tea due to my experience above. I enjoyed it, but unfortunately it was not as milk chocolatey as my original sample.

Fujian Zhenghe Gongfu by Titan Chinese Commodity Express
ZhengHe GongFu Black Tea – Jin Ping Village by Tao Tea Leaf
Per yyz:
“I like them both and find them really different animals. This one is like Cookies described really chocolatey and rich ( I have only had some Lapsang that were as chocolatey or more so). Whereas Tao’s tea reminds me a lot of one of my favourite jinjunmei with a deeper nuttier undercurrent. I would like to keep both in my cupboard. At its current prices buying from the producer this is a very affordable tea.”


- Has anyone tasted the 2015 harvest of this tea? Thanks!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
