8951 Tasting Notes


pulled this sample out when the weekend started to go sideways. Lots of blergamot samples to go through (that means more than 1 in my world) and i wanted something that was delicious and that i KNOW i love. I pretty much knocked back 2 cups of this in short succession. I still really need to get this into my cupboard permanently. thanks for the re-visit crowkettle!

Another tea that i’m happy to have tried. I might consider picking this one up with my next what-cha order.

mmmm this oolong makes me happy. I’ve set an agressive goal for myself today to get through 15 sipdowns (hello sipdown saturday!). Now i’m not even sure that i have 15 teas in my cupboard to sipdown, but that’s my goal. I’ve got 9 teas inbound and that would mean that even if they were in my cupboard, i’d still hit my sipdown goal haha. And then i can also justify possibly picking up tea in chicago. :)

Really appreciate the share of all these oolongs and green teas Crowkettle. As much as they’re not my jam – having small amounts of them IS totally up my alley :)

15 sipdowns! Good Lord, woman!


just giving myself something to shoot for haha

Super Starling!

You are going to be spending half the day peeing. ;)


Starling. You’d think. But I had almost a 24 day yesterday so it wasn’t that bad.

from yesterday – still working hard at getting my older teas drunk up and my cupboard as small as it’s ever been in weight and size. This one was great to have for a super fast afternoon of work. Release this weekend – the last one i have to participate in as my new job doesn’t do evenings and weekends mwahahahahahaa….i’m going to be so bored lol.

What i might miss is the occasional perk of the old job – like getting a call last night to head down to the rogers center for the U2 concert because there was an extra ticket in the vendor box seat. Am i the biggest U2 fan? nope – but it was the joshua tree and i CAN get behind classic U2…and also did i mention box seats with food and drinks? beats the nick jonas concert i had to go to for work is all i can say lol.

Anyway…on to the release! wheeeeeeeee!

this oolong from crowkettle is sort of middle of the road oolong. it’s not really roasted or super green…it’s just kinda…an oolong lol. Appreciate the share crowkettle as i for sure wouldn’t be picking these out myself but i DO like to try them :)

sample from crowkettle. This oonlong is not for me. There’s jasmine hidden in the background making it not all that enjoyable. not sure if it’s flavoured as such or my imagination is wreaking havoc on me but this is on the not so much a win side for me :)


I appreciate your mention of the jasmine. i am just not a big jasmine fan, so I tend to avoid teas with it. I really like the look of the flowering teas but it’s too bad so many seem to have jasmine as there primary note.

It’s not actually a jasmine scented tea, but definitely does have lot of natural floral flavour to it.


yeah i didn’t think it was jasmine scented but it was super floral/jasmine like for a tea that wasn’t jasmine scented haha

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.
