1779 Tasting Notes


So I’m at 145 teas and I don’t have any incoming orders and I’ve decided to just chill out. I’m drinking what I want, when I want! I’ll hit 100 eventually.

I bought this and it’s been sitting on my shelf for months, but I was craving it and it is just so delicious. I wish it tasted as good as it smells – CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY – but it’s still chocolate strawberry. It just won’t knock you over! I love it.

Sadly this makes me want to order more Lupcia when I still have a few more tins I haven’t even opened yet! /0\ RELAX, ME!


Lupicia is awesome, just sayin’ :-P


Yeah. They really are. :)

Lariel of Lórien

Agreed. (I just got that tea.)

I like this tea. I really do. I had 3 cups of it today at work and it was just what I wanted. I tried to drink another tea in-between steeps but it intolerable (especially next to this beauty) and was dumped quite quickly. This one is just dark and rich, and slightly sweet, and fruity. Like a juicy plum? I definitely want more Mi Xian – whether from TTC or Butiki. It’s great.

I had this last night and I have to note that it is AMAZING. It really is much better than 3 Friends – I just really love the PTA base.

drank Shiva's Breakfast by Butiki Teas

This is one of the ones I got in yesterday’s order!

And I need something strong. So strong. Current events and everyone discussing everything repeatedly, everywhere I go, is wearing me down and I’m frazzled and down and hiding on the 3DS forums on Reddit because THAT seems safe, so far.

I don’t drink enough breakfast teas to appreciate every nuance of this, but I do appreciate how bold and malty it is. And I am detecting citrus-y notes as well. I like it. I let it sit for 20 minutes before taking my first sip, and even though it had cooled, it still tastes great, without any bitterness.

Yes. I’m satisfied with this. :)

I’m sipping this and working on the website at work, and watching/listening to Supernatural while I work and it is just good times all around. :)

This is bright and buttery. It’s nice.

drank Kenyan Earl Grey by Justea

Ok. I bought too much of this tea. I don’t like EG THAT much I guess, and I have 3 different tins to choose from. :P I’m basically sipping this each day because I’m getting close to it’s 1 year anniversary and I want to rotate my stock!

I made it iced today!

drank Garrus by Custom-Adagio Teas

Goodbye Garrus! I feel like I should miss you more, but it’s the chai, baby, the chai. More chocolate would have held my interest, but I have no regrets.

Now I have slightly more room on my shelf for my next Adagio purchase… (I’m looking at you, Burgler Brew!!!)


One of youngest’s favorite characters…


He was my fav char in the series, although it’s a hard decision. There were so many GOOD characters: interesting in different ways.

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)
