1779 Tasting Notes

drank Gold Rush by DAVIDsTEA
1779 tasting notes

Woo! I cashed in my DavidsTea points and walked away with 50g of this and 50g of Pumpkin Chai. That’s nearly $20 in tea right there! :O

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get this one since I had the Mulberry White from Rivertea, but this one is actually different enough to make it worthwhile. It’s so creamy with the coconut, and full of fruit.

I’m sipping away at this while I watch Season 8 of Supernatural. The toddler is sitting right next to me, cuddling up, and saying ‘BYE" when people get killed. Maybe that means I’m not getting mom of the year award, but it’s still adorable.

I have RiverTea’s Mulberry White and I’ve found I’m not a huge fan of it. Would you be interested in what I have?


To be honest, I’ve got so much of it from my last order that I’m not really in a rush to trade for more of it, but if you’re unable to find anyone else to trade let me know and I can do a swap. (I just… I think I’ve got 100g of it, and I rarely drink non-black tesa! :P Sorry!)

Sipdown (148)
I haven’t finished drinking this cup and yet I miss it dearly already. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite black teas, gently pushing the others out of the way. Much like this (http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/images/0/07/Beardyjensenseason9.jpg) is quickly becoming one of my favorite pics of Jensen. Beards, yo. They are important.

(Proper tea reviews, less so? IDK guys, I’ve had this tea a lot. I need to make reviews fun again. If that bothers you, unfollw me en masse. No hard feelings. <3)

Look, who had I sipdown?
I did.
I had a sipdown. (150)
Finally. After many days of casual drinking, I did it.
And it was Steve. I took Steve out.
Steve Carrrrrlsberg….. That idiot.

(151) Thanks Sil for sharing this with me! It’s… floral? Yeah.
It’s also slightly sweet and earthy, but I’m mostly focused on the floral aspects of it. I didn’t think I’d be crazy about this, but now I know. Sorry – I’m not a flower girl! (Unless it’s a flower crown!)

drank Shiva's Breakfast by Butiki Teas

I drank this with milk today and that was a mistake as it washed away all the nuances. It was delcious, but not distinguishable from other breakfast teas.

So VariaTEA gave me some teas we split as well as a ton of awesome samples and I’m up at 154 teas now, but that’s cool. I’m very excited to try everything.

This one was good but too much chilli. Just, too much chili. Otherwise it’s very good, and thanks!


You’re welcome! Glad you (sorta) enjoyed it.

drank Kenya Obsidian by Butiki Teas
1779 tasting notes

Hmmm. I think there is something in the Kenyan teas which I do not really care for. This tea is ok, but malty/strong in a way that I’m not crazy about. Good to know! I’m happy I split this with Sil! (142)


…and that is why joint orders make me happy


Yes! I can’t believe how well I’ve been doing for orders though! It’s ALMOST been a month.


awesome! :)


on that note..uh you have a bunch of teas here to pick up hahahaha


I still just want to order for the sake of ordering though. Had to resist WP even though I still have plenty! :P /0\


What…. wait? What? :O
LOL. Thank you.


But I have NOTHING for you. Unless you want to try Sleeping Bear? Or some other WP?


dude..like i care. sharing is caring :) and yes i’d love to try that, but i’ll also be buying it in september because brendan and the teafairy made me :)


Hahahhaha. <3

This is one of my favorite morning teas. I love it.
I finally got everything organized and I filled up the 8 mini tins I have from Davids (they were part of a sampler set?) so that I have 6 favorites, and 2 teas to try at the office! Otherwise, when am I going to drink Morning’s Journey?

And this tea deserves attention. It’s a little smokier than I remember too, but it’s balanced nicely with a little astringentness and bright fruity notes. YES.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Passion (full leaf) by Tazo

We have this in the office and it’s cold-steeped and sugared, but I’m liking it. Yes. I’m not going to buy a tin, but I will take advantage of it being here (and ready to drink!)

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)
