682 Tasting Notes

Saw this in the box and had to try some! I just got a wee 3g sample :)
Dude. I’m so lost without my tea scale. Last time I remember seeing it, is when I got the Marco Polo box. Now it’s nowhere to be found? Aww I’m so sad. I’ll find it eventually? Hopefully?

But it’s almost christmastime and I’m so excited for the holidays! This one smells like wonderful pumpkin pie. I think my water may have been a bit too hot because it’s on the slight bitter side, but at least I do taste the pumpkin! I’ve been meaning to place a Butiki order, but I have SO much tea. Hopefully they’ll still be open when I lessen my tea stash? I’ve had plenty of their teas and I’ve fallen in love with so many of them, but I need to lessen my tea stash and save up before I can get more!

What a busy day, oh my gosh!
So this morning, I decided to leave extra early because I wanted to get to class early and turns out, they weren’t opening up guest parking till 8:30, and I had to be parkside at 8:30!! So it was a huge mess of trying to get to the right place, and getting stopped by plenty of other cast members and two people from security and wow, it was a mess.
But class parkside was fantastic, and I got to play in the parks with my friends after.
Went home, showered, and got ready for initiation banquet happening at school.

I got to RKR and talked to a lot of people and they were all so nice! I met Nancy and her parents and they let me sit with them since I went alone. Dinner was PHENOMENAL. Like seriously. The meat was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth, and the roasted brussels sprouts with the onion and garlic in the risotto. Ugh. It was divine. And then you have the Chocolate Pot De Créme which was just perfect to wrap the dinner.
Initiation happened and I got my chord with the certificate and I felt smart hehe. There’s the third honor society in my college career! I think I might be in too many, but Honor Societies just make me feel good hehe. And this is the one specific to my major so I’m so happy I got invited to join.

But I decided on this tea because I wanted something like hot cocoa, but no caffeine to end the night and this rich caramel/honey roasted barley tea just sounded perfect! Just having it plain tonight. No sugar or milk and I think it actually works :)

I got this many moons ago when Laurant was handing out samples of his tea. I jumped on it because VariaTEA loved them so much. She sent me a whole lot of their zodiac blends, but this time with Laurant, I went with the greens and black teas!

This tea is so good oh my gosh. Lovely chocolate/caramel/vanilla scents when you open up the baggie, and it comes out more as it steeps. It did turn a bit bitter when I drank it straight, but I think this is a tea that needed the milk and sugar!! Ahh so so SO good. When I lessen my tea stash, I’ll definitely get my hands on some of this tea :)

Freakin boyfriend is such a creep oh my gosh (but he’s fab and it was quite funny ahhah).
So he knows that jump62359 is my everything and he decided to google that and STEEPSTER CAME UP AND HE SAW MY POST OF HAVING TO MEE IN TRAFFIC AHHAHAH
EJ if you’re reading this then hi.

But seriously though. Steepster is fab and I love it tons, but because of my busy schedule, I almost never have time for tea? Tonight is special bc I have things that need to be done and I figured this would be a great tea bc honeybush <33 Roommates were actually very surprised that I was drinking tea like a ‘normal person’ because I didn’t weigh my tea out since I couldn’t find my scale haha. So a couple scoops of this into a disposable filter, and I just topped it off with water.

Lovely tea, proportions are off though since I didn’t weigh it or measure the water because laziness. I have one more serving of this tea left and I’ll make sure to drink it right next time :)

Prepared in store bc I was craving some jasmine, and apparently you get a free refill! Sooo yeah. I got my free refill today and I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD BE FREAKIN TRAFFIC AT 2PM AND I HAD TO PEE SO BAD AND IT WAS SO PAINFUL WOW but tea was okay. The lady who prepared it didn’t really wash the steeper out so it had the previous taste which was like chocolatey and weird and did not work with this tea at all.

Bummer! It’s annoying when we do it to ourselves but for a tea shop to not clean out the steeper is inexcusable.


I have having to pee and hitting traffic. Hello, tea drinker here. Drive faster, people!!!

And really, that’s inexcusable to not clean out the infuser.

THIS BOX IS MASSIVE and there’s so many teas I’ve never had before! This is a definite first.
Nice, sweet, light aroma coming out of the package.
Definitely has that roasted genmaicha smell right when I poured the water in! Now with the matcha, what difference does the matcha make? I haven’t a clue, so that why I’m here to find out!
Hmm.. Tastes like a slightly buttery version of the generic genmaicha I’ve had. Nice, and I can definitely tell the difference between the two.

And back into the box this goes!

Likes/dislikes here:

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai


Disneyland. Literally.
