3004 tasting notes

Additional notes: Sipping down ONE of my pouches of this one today. This is Frank’s blend but Anne rated it 100 so I wonder if it was every reblended? I’m one of the few who actually likes this smoky chai. haha. And also enjoying Bird & Blend’s always delicious Pumpkin Pie Chai today. Super chai day! I even got to sit outside and read today before it started raining: Melmoth the Wanderer (seems Halloween enough). Always need chai on those days sitting out enjoying that lovely autumn leaf aroma. Both delicious cups.
Happy Halloweeeeen everyone!

I haven’t reblended this – but I did love it. This had a really good balance of spice and smoke. The main reason I gave this one a 100 was because it as one that I requested of him. I wanted something smoky that also featured star anise, nutmeg and cumin (three of my favorite spices) and I think he did a pretty good job with those. I believe I put this on the list to be voted on for next year’s holiday box because it’s one that I miss.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
