The flavor on this tea is round – there isn’t any real finish, but it does have lingering flavor. Fruity, soft, hint of sweetness. 195F, 2 min.

Found this at the bottom of the untried tea storage when I was searching for teas for my brother to sample.
This tea is deep, dark, and earthy. The pu’erh comes through on this tea much more than some of the other blends. I prefer A Dark Kitchen Sink better. Since I didn’t like it so much – my brother got a larger share of this one.

Flavors: Earth

This is a sad sipdown. The end of a great tea blend. Sweet, this, rich and earthy. A nicely balanced melange of flavors. I’m gonna miss this tea.

I received this as part of the W2T club and liked it so much I ended up buying a brick of it. I also ended up spreading the rest of the coins around to others to enjoy.

Clean, sweet, thick, very floral with a long lasting floral aftertaste. There was a little bit of sharpness/citrus? present at the beginning, but it ended up being a very enjoyable session.

Flavors: Floral, Sweet, Thick

Sipdown from August 2017 :

I really liked this cold brewed. Cucumber, sweet, thick, melon. I need to order from Floating Leaves again because I’ve really enjoyed their teas.

I stopped reviewing teas here in the last 6 months. Often I was drinking, but not recording any notes. Maybe I’ll do better in the new year? It’s definitely gotten me through the holiday season. My brother asked for some tea for Christmas so I sampled from my stash – gotta spread the tea love – plus it’s an easy way for a newbie to sample a large amount of teas at once.

Flavors: Cucumber, Melon, Sweet, Thick

Sipdown by giveaway. I could never get this as perfect as it was the first time. I quickly got tired of the hazelnut flavoring, though the chocolate component was still very good.
I gave the rest away to a novice tea drinker who I hope will enjoy it.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut

1 dragonball, 200F, western.
I steeped this 3 or 4 times. Smooth, thick, dark fruit?, slightly sweet with a slightly green under taste. I had a hard time picking out what the dark fruit and green underlayer reminded me of. It all came together in a pleasant cup of tea.
I want to try this grandpa style as it is a giant ball that looks like it could give flavor forever. I let the last steep go for 5 min or so and didn’t notice any off or odd flavors.

Flavors: Green, Smooth, Thick

Sipdown – If you can call threw the whole tin away.
Flavor – disgusting. The only time this ever tasted okay was when I was sick and couldn’t taste much. I took it to work, but I couldn’t stomach it there either. The flavor just didn’t work for me. Lupicia’s flavors don’t really work for me overall.

Flavors: Artificial

I’m going to call this a sipdown – never liked this tea much. I don’t really care for chai all that much. Basically, I recognized that I wasn’t going to drink this again and got rid of it.

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick.

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I have available. Though I haven’t updated in a while.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
