1779 Tasting Notes


Sipdown (149)
I was sipping this all day while we moved the last of our stuff back into the suite. Eeesh. It was such a long day but this was such a beauiful tea. Thanks Sil I didn’t get a chance to log it while I made it but it was great and quite tolerant to abuse. (Sorry tea – I kept steeping it for 8-10 minutes…)

Sipdown! I’m at 150. :)
I guess it’s pretty easy to do when you actually stop ordering teas! Now, to see if I can join Sil in the 100’s… (and then order more, most likely – hahaha)

Anyway, thank you Sil and/or VariaTEA for letting me try this. Sorry I couldn’t remember exactly who it was that gave me the cup! It is really relaxing though. I almost feel like I should have a sore throat or a cold or something to fully appreciate this, but it’s really just what I need to end this day! Still got more moving/unpacking stuff to do tomorrow, so goodnight Steepsterites!

Hah, I’m at 155 now. I would like to be under 100 too, let’s do it! :P


This was from Sil. I am just the delivery person.


According to my cupboard I’m at 219! Yikes!


Right- that’s what it was VariaTEA!
And we CAN DO IT! Especially if we focus on the little/easy sipdowns!

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea

Even though I finished this now, I hadn’t reviewed this because I was undecided while I sipped it.

I drank some of it cold-steeped earlier today with dinner, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t memorable enough. I tried to have a goodnight cup of this but my daughter pushed into me and I ended up spilling the cup down the stove and into all the burners. Le sigh. :p

So now I’m making chamomile to relax!


Oh no. That is very unfortunate. At least you got to enjoy one of the two cups.


Yeah, totally! I feel like I’ve had too many disaster tea posts! I really got to stop knocking things over…

drank Mulberry White Tea by RiverTea

I haven’t actually had this tea since I got it from my shared order with Sil and WHAT A FOOL AM I. It’s so good. Delicious. And I bet I’d like it iced as well. Maybe I’ll cold steep these leaves after I’m done this cup…

(Sipdown, 152)
I think this was a free sample with my last order as I generally don’t order anything other than black teas. It’s tasty though! Buttery and light and very vegetal. It seems like a poor choice for 9 at night – maybe it’d be better in the morning or afternoon. Or at least some time when the sun is up?

Oh, and the spinach notes linger long afterwards…


how is it already 9pm…i haven’t done anything productive tonight except mildly look into a hawaii trip…since work is going to kill me for a few months

(158) Goodbye, slightly smoky tea! Today it’s a little too much smoke for me, but I think that’s just because I’ve been staring too log at computer screens and not drinking enough water…

This tea is good, but not mind-blowing. Maybe I’m jaded? I drank some favorites earlier so it’s hard to compete with that… This is a pleasant black/green mix with a bit of strawberry jam flavoring that I like, but it’s nothing I could live without. I wouldn’t refuse it though. It’s good. It’s just hard to compete with all the exceptional teas out there.

Thanks Sil for letting me try it!
And I’m at 160!!!
(I might go back up when my Butiki order arrives, but I don’t think it’s even shipped yet so I have time!)


go go gadget sipdowns!


:P I’m hoping I can push my numbers down steadily so that when you go to US and buy like crazy, we’ll meet in the middle!

(162) I enjoyed this with breakfast this morning. I like it – it’s dark and roasty – but I couldn’t tell you what makes it different from the one i bought from Teavivre!


I wasn’t that impressed with this one either. The Da Hong Pao from Whispering Pines, on the other hand, is a whole different story.


Really? I’ll have to remember that!

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House

(163) I already miss this tea, and I haven’t even finished my cup. :P
Also, I’m sorta impressed that I’m down to 163 teas. I haven’t been focusing on sipdowns lately but I guess I’m in the habit of reaching for teas who are nearly done as I alternate between absolute favorites, and trying smaller samples. It should be easy to hit 150 this month, even with the 9 teas from Butiki I have incoming!


You are almost equal with me! I am at 157 and have had no tea in days because of my cold.


Awww. That’s so depressing! Hope you feel better soon! :|


Thank you! I am actually feeling okay. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the taste to come back.


I can’t taste or smell anything right now either. It’s the worst! All this tea and no ability to enjoy it!

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)
