1779 Tasting Notes


I’m getting lower on this one, but I’m still really enjoying it. I want to place an Adagio order eventually so I"m working on sipping a few of these ones down so I can make room. Maybe 8 more cups of this to go? Easy!

You really have to over leaf it and steep it at 175 for it to work!

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

I finally opened my bag of this, now that summer is nearly over and I’ve wasted my best nights with it.
But it’s great. So great. Now that I’m drinking it, I’ll try to enjoy it as much as I can before the snow falls because I’m sure I won’t be in the mood for it later.

Also, why is this one SO amazing, when the grape one just falls a little flat? It smells OMG so freakin’ good, but tastes bitter and uninteresting.


this is good cold brewed!

Sipdown (141)
Yes. I’m making excruciatingly slow progress on my sipdowns! I think most of my 1-2 cup samples are decaf so they end up sitting for a long time…

Anyway, I think this was one of the best Night Vale teas, but I’m not sure I could drink 3 oz of it. Maybe another 1 oz tin would be ok, but it just a decent tea and nothing spectacular.

drank Red Queen Cupcake by Butiki Teas

Goodbye, sweet delicious tea! (142)
I needed a cup of chocolate and this was perfect. Sadly, I couldn’t drink it without sugar which I’m not crazy about, but it was AMAZING with a little added in.

(145) I found this buried in my flavoured tea bin last night, as I was tidying, and stuffed it in my purse to finish off today. It’s so good, and doesn’t deserve to waste away forgotten in the bottom of a bin.

It’s one of the few non-black teas that I consistently enjoy. That’s really saying something! And it’s so freaking hot/muggy/awful outside right now that a lighter tea like this seems preferable to my typical black.

drank Cinnamon Somersault by T2
1779 tasting notes

This was weird, and I didn’t care for it. I couldn’t figure it out at the time, but I guess it was the orange zest that threw it off? That or the cinnamon itself. Either way, even with milk I couldn’t finish it. Sorry! VariaTea!


Haha don’t be sorry. I wasn’t a fan either. I was hoping you would have better luck with it but clearly that’s wasn’t the case. I am sorry you couldn’t get through it.

I needed silliness last night so I went for a cup of this instead of a ‘proper tea.’ It’s good; probably one of the best teas I’ve had from Adagio. It might even be better than Tardis bc this isn’t an EG!

drank Queen of Tropics by RiverTea

This one never impressed me. Sorry, your Majesty. There are other teas from RiverTea that I preferred far more!

Thanks 221Tea! for the generous Yunnan Sourcing samples. I’ve sat on them for a month or so because I need the right day to drink them – to make sure I could resteep it and enjoy it properly.

Today was that day. It was EXCELLENT. Warm, golden, bready, with a nice thick mouth-feel, and a flavour that goes strong after 4+ steepings! Fancy!

The episode of SPN that I was watching earlier featured Mjolnir, and it was even wielded by Sam, with the long flowy hair.

So, this tea was an obvious choice afterwards.

I’m enjoying the snippets of Supernatural goodness that pop up in your posts :)

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
