810 Tasting Notes

drank Napa Blanc by Lupicia
810 tasting notes

From jump62359 …. And I drank it like, 4 years ago or something.
And I’ve saved the baggie the sample came in this whole time.
In fact, I have a strange pile of many many baggies of teas I drank long ago. And I think I’ll just put them all in now.
I saved them cuz I wanted to leave a nice note for them all. But I have adhd and that was a ridiculous plan.
When in doubt, drink some tea.

I’m always slightly amused when I see that people still have Teavana in their stashes :) glad it was still good!

Sipdown! I must have had the rest of this but I don’t remember.

I don’t hate it.
I don’t love it.

It’s TOTALLY weird to add a tea after being away for so long.
Solely in order to review it. … but I did it anyways!

It was real exciting to sample tea old school style!! (meaning like I used to obsessively taste teas). Thank you Ashley Elizabeth!!

I have a lot of sample tea given to me by the Steepster community that I STILL have saved after all these years. I know some of the samples won’t be good still, but some of them def still are.
I kept them in the dark, dry, and I kept them protected.

The story is, I recently hired an adhd organizer team to come help me. It’s changed my life.
I got rid of a lot of tea and tea samples, but I also kept some. And maybe now I’ll have the bandwidth to actually taste and document the teas.

Fingers crossed.

Good to see you back, Shmiracles! I myself have used the word BANDWIDTH today, though sadly not applied to tea (I wish. haha).

Shmiracles

Hahaha yay!
You mentioning word choice makes me think of wordle. I’m obsessed.
I hope to get through these samples and get my tea organized before the professional organizers return in 6 months. OPTIMISTIC!!

Good luck on the organizing!

That organizing team sounds awesome, Schmiracles! Wordle is a big deal in our family. My first words from my husband most mornings are “got it in four.” And if he didn’t do Wordle before leaving for work, it is the first text of the day!

Second time I’m logging this. My sister brought some back from her trip to Europe 3+ years ago. I’ve been hoarding the tea bags she gave me and finally drank some this weekend. I had a great productive weekend! But didn’t do anything I should have done. Saw an awesomely staged satellite opera on Saturday, Agrippina.
Still – let’s just assume that this tea helped me get things done!

Made a carafe of this for iced tea. I’m sure it will be delicious and hydrating when I ice it up.
I have a lot of tea to drink before I’m allowed to buy any more. Large carafes of ice tea is one way I’m trying to get through my overflowing cupboard.
In other news… I’m attending a 4 week pottery wheel class starting Friday’s I keep making jokes that everyone’s gonna get penholders!!! Yay! But I’m secretly aiming to make some modern, fun tea mugs.

The class sounds like fun. Our favorite fall and winter tea mugs are hand-thrown.

Haven’t seen you around in a while; hi! We seem to have the same tea-elimination plan :D

One of my friends took a pottery class with her boyfriend a couple years ago, and they had a fabulous time making all sorts of things. Im not terribly artistic, but I think it would be delightful to drink tea out of a mug I made myself.

I got this from Anna’s Tea Shop because I loved Della Terras and they’re the same. I love this one too!
I bought this in April 2016 and I admit I’ve been hoarding it!
I’ve been enjoying drinking from my Harney Royal Palaces Teapot, Teacup & Saucer. It pours like a dream.

gmathis

That’s good to know…Della Terra did dessert teas like no one else!

Sil

a bunch of ppl will now be visiting that website haha

gmathis

Whaddya know … it’s in Missouri! (Still too far to be convenient; pooh.)

Shmiracles

Della Terra DID do Dessert Teas like no one else!! All their teas were dense with twisty and turny flavors. I’ve purchased a large amount of Anna’s vanilla black and it’s a permanent staple for me.
