773 Tasting Notes

the scent of this tea is strong kapow!
and yum and so lemon bright!
i don’t drink a ton of green tea but it’s always good to have a tasty reliable few styles around so i’m really glad i got a 4 oz tin and not just a sample.
my sister kinda picked it out and i said Yes cuz i enjoy gunpowder. i’ll look forward to drinking this in the mornings. wake up my taste buds!!


Kapow, lol, that’s awesome!


Love it.

i like this tea. i’ll easily drink up the sample i bought. i tried this a second time this morning but was running late and kinda had to chug 2/3rds of the mug. i would be bummed about that but 1. i have so much tea that it’s okay to chug if i must and 2. this is a yummy tea but not a style that would be a fave of mine. (reluctant as i am to admit it)
maybe my next cup i’ll add a bit of agave and almond milk.

i haven’t tried this tea yet, but i wanted to document that this morning marks the very first time that a new full tin of tea was spilled all over the floor.
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT DIDN’T HAPPEN SOONER we both said as we started to clean up.
we figured what with all the early morning groggy tea making this should have happened well over a year ago.
don’t worry, half the tin was still very full and the oz we did lose was actually scooped up and we may still steep it. i mean, it is boiling water after all. and i ate a donut after dropping it on the floor just a few days ago. so eh.


I’m pretty sure I’ve made tea from leaves scooped off the floor in the past.. ;-)


oh dear! poor Shmiracles, poor tea…..


You crack me up.


I’ve rescued floor tea before. It’s a corollary of the 10-second rule.


Definitely still use the leaves! it’s only a kitchen floor, yo!

space tea!
this shit is delicious!
also, it’s not really tea it’s “beverage”. but whatevs!
it’s burny and sweet and feels so good on my sore dry throat.
i want a freakin gallon of it right now.
space tea rulez hard.


OMG I need some of these. That sounds so good, especially for hiking or when you’re sick.

Hope you feel better soon!


These sound pretty tasty…




I got some of this once at the health food store. Real honey and strong ginger, not fake either! Super good when you’re sick!!


yay i found these Instant Ginger Honey Crystals at the health food store too. i bought 2 boxes haha cuz i NEEEEEDed them.

hi! i need to stay off tumblr because everyone is trying to spoil Agents of Shield for me and NO nope NOPE i think it’s a big episode Not gonna happen! shut it tumblr!

this tea is meh. it smells better than it tastes. and it’s not bad, but just, compared to their other caramel or chocolate teas it doesn’t seem to hit the bullseye. but i liked trying it.

nooooooo my note just got erased :(

bullet points!
- i love lapsang blends when i feel like drinking a lapsang blend
- this is an uber drinkable lapsang blend. it has poetry.
- meaning it makes me wanna read a book and tuck the quilt under the bottom of my feet to keep the heat in. this tea is like the honesty of paper.
- so glad i decided to order it.


Poetry is good. I’d like to meet a Sean Connery type with lapsang souchong, poetry and a private jet. Why not fly off to St. Petersburg for Christmas. I’d need furs and diamonds though (on loan is ok). I want to ride in a Troika!


ooooh i just got a sample of this yesterday. excited now!


I love this tasting note.

I’m having this with a 3 day old fancy donut that fell on the floor.
This tea goes with everything!!

I just spent a couple hours organizing my teas and putting a bunch on new ones in tins.
It’s beautiful and exciting, but now I’m exhausted.
I literally have my feet up :)

this tea was actually not very delicious.
sorry bummer town.
i think i need to just give up and keep my caffeine free tea simple. as in ginger and lemon and mint teas only. the basics.
they are what i drink.


You are hilarious (I’d totally do that too. Donuts!). :)


i mean, it’s just the floor. baby olivia crawls around on it all day, and in a battle of donut vs. floor, donut will always win duh.

okay i’ve only had 3 American Tea Room teas total. and i know it’s still early in our relationship, but…
Do they ever get any of their teas wrong?!
i mean
my sister summarized by saying “their flavors are bold and clear and don’t ever taste fake”.
it’s…that’s ….that’s it.
it just is.


I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve tried from them so far too!

my American Tea Room order arrived whooo, and dudes, this tea is kinda mind blowing. it’s waggling it’s eyebrows at me. idek.

i have SO MANY samples to try.
it’s nuttiness is really something to behold. fig spread on sesame crackers.

i can’t wait to try all the samples. what else is new.


awesome!!! i really like that you can get a few cups out of their samples too :)


Happy sampling!


okay, it’s almost midnight and it’s Olivia’s 1 yr bday party at my house and i’ve been alternating tea cups and craft beer all night. Olivia had a great night and so did i. (but now this introvert has stolen to her room and is catching up on some SPN episodes yo.)


oh duh, what i wanted to say was that i reached unique beer tasting number 600 tonight.


I wish I’ve been keeping count of how many craft beers I’ve tried so bar, but I’m nowhere near you. Congrats!

my first of 5 tea orders arrived! between all the orders PLUS 2 new tea cups i’m obviously preparing for the coming winter months. tea and kindles is all i ever need. ever.
i’m so in love with this stuff.

i ordered this one especially for my sister. and lucky her, they sent me two 3oz tins for the price of one :) she loves earl grey and she loves rose teas and i just know for sure that she’s gonna love this one. i anticipate that half of it will be gone within 2 weeks time, easy.

IDK why but i added honey and milk to this first cup. things are going to crazy!

i have all this new tea to taste and i finally figured out how to get steepster working on my work computer again. everything has fallen into place.

here is a list of other things i want to tell you
- i am still reading all the Avengers and Sherlock fan fic
- i got into the Berlin Marathon so i will be going back to Europe in september
- at the encouragement of a friend, i now get monthly massages


I’m the same way… I just need my tea, books & music.. and maybe my favorite TV shows.




The Berlin marathon sounds like quite an adventure! That’s great.

<3 Sherlock and the Avengers
Well maybe not Sherlock AND the Avengers. I haven’t looked into that one.
