337 Tasting Notes
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.
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 also from August.

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
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.
