1113 Tasting Notes


Good tea. Very comforting in this scary weather! Southern Indiana got hit with an ice/snow storm…but I’m at work today. Luckily my coworker with a Jeep gave me a ride. We do a lot of work for the funeral industry, so even though I’m just a graphic artist the show must go on! I’m hoping it doesn’t get much worse because I have to work on Saturday and Sunday, too. What is up with adulthood ruining snow for me? I used to love snow so much! :(

Such truth! I used to love it, too. Now I only appreciate it when I’m indoors.


Snow used to get you out of school, and when you fell you got right back up without having to bandage anything up. Hate winter.

We have about 6" on the ground with some icy stuff underneath. My wife said this morning it is the first time she is glad I don’t have a job at the moment. I don’t recall if I have asked before – I am halfway between Indy and Louisville, which direction are you?


K S – I’m southwest of you, on the ohio river right across from Kentucky. We’ve got ice with 10" of snow on top now!


Stephanie – when this started yesterday, I watched the radar and saw the sleet and ice you got reach our county line then go North of us. By the time it actually hit us the upper atmosphere was cold enough it had turned to mostly snow. We have now gained a couple more inches.

I made this into tea syrup the other night- I brewed 1 cup of tea triple strength, and then simmered the tea with 1/2 cup of sugar and let it cool. Now I’ve been adding a few spoonfuls of it to club soda…HOLY CRAP SO GOOD!

It tastes like strawberry rhubarb cream soda with a hint of tea. dies

Everyone should try this!!!

However- when I was putting the dry leaf in the steeper, I came across a particularly large piece of bunny graham…and made the mistake of nibbling it. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME! bleh! I had to rinse off my tongue LOL


Yay! Tea soda for everyone!


:D :D :D

I guess I’m adding this on my list of things to make into tea sodas (along with DAVIDsTEA’s Coconut Grove, Butiki’s Root Beer Float, and 52Teas’ Very Big Hill Dew Honeybush).


so happy people like this blend heh


Will definitely have to try this… I’ve been thinking about tea sodas recently!


wow, I should try this!


Brilliant! I need to try this.


Awesome idea!


This sounds so good!!

Still my favorite herbal blend so far. I’m sure i will be drinking plenty of it this winter!


Love this blend! I can add puerh or laoshan black when I want to which makes it versatile.


That sounds good! I’m picky and don’t like many caffeine free teas/tisanes so I usually save this one for nighttime :)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Still can’t believe it ha ha

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Is this still the pack I gave you?


Nah, I finished that one ;) I’ve only got about half an ounce left of my other packet though!

Thanks for sending it along, btw.

First tasting note! Thank you Stacy for including a sample of this with my recent order :)

Fans of sencha, this tea is for you! Smooth and sweet and grassy without being bitter or overly astringent, this tea does have strong asparagus notes, and a tart cherryish taste too. SO GOOD I am loving it!


oooh, this sounds yummy


I love how complex it is…so much going on here :)

From the November Classic Club box…

Creamy, floral, dark, vaguely fruity, full bodied, and kind of bitter is how I would describe this tea. Definitely drinkable but I strongly preferred the Dancong. This is not one of my favorite type of oolong, BUT it is nice to drink something different and since BrewTEAlly Sweet and I split the box I don’t have a whole lot to sip through….sadly the same with the Dancong though :P

BrewTEAlly Sweet

I’m currently drinking this one:) for once I’m getting to my club samples!! :)

I decided this morning that today would be Green Tea Day for me :)

Green tea lovers, why haven’t you tried this one?? It is SO GOOD! Super sweet and buttery like creamy corn with a nice green tang. Perfect.

Drinking this unsweetened this afternoon. SUPER TASTY and I do think I’m getting some spiciness from the hops, too :)

I’m considering making this one into a tea syrup for tea sodas tonight. Or maybe Ruby Pie…or With Open Eyes! Oh I can’t decide!!

Butiki Teas

Ooooh. I think this or the Ruby Pie would make an interesting soda syrup!


ooh – I can’t wait until I get mine!
(And it hasn’t even shipped yet. :P)

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.
