Conclusion on this tea for me: too green. Hi Ho! Kermit the Frog here!

Enjoying my last cup of this beautiful tea. It’s so light and floral. Unlike the movie I’m watching – Immortals. Sheesh. I’ve not watched a movie with this much gore in a long time. People literally smashing other people to bits. I guess the one thing that goes with this tea is the beauty that is Henry Cavill.

It’s not living as such that’s important, Theseus. It’s living rightly.

Sad to see this one go. So yummy!

I think you’re sexier than socks on a rooster.

Joined in the Saturday Sample Sipdown suggested by Madeline Alyce on the discussion boards. This is sipdown #1.

The more teas I try, they more discerning I am about flavors I like. This one is a bit of a let down. It probably would be great as a tea latte with milk and sugar, but by itself, it falls flat.

drank Genmaicha Extra Green by Den's Tea
207 tasting notes

My Den’s Tea green tea sampler arrived yesterday!! This is the first tea I’ve tried. I chose it to start because I love genmaicha.

It’s pretty good. Not as toasty as I was hoping and definitely more green tea flavor than the other 2 genmaichas I’ve tried. I’m going to brew another pot and see how it goes. I think I would prefer the regular genmaicha without the matcha. Overall, this is a good tea, but not my fav.

This is an amazing malty and rich black tea. I love how smooth it is. It’s also very convenient because it’s in a sachet. I took it to my small group gathering this evening and steeped it 3 times. All three were absolutely delicious. Gonna try for a 4th in the morning :) Thank you so much for sharing this LiberTEAS!

drank Oolong and Eucommia Bark Tea by Nezha

101, here we come :)

This tea is excellent and made up for the dud of a tea I had made before it. Speaking of which, anyone want 2 or so ounces of Buckingham Palace Garden Party?? It may be the first tea that I dump in a trashcan.

Back to this wonderful oolong. This is an emergency purse tea that I carry just in case I need a tea while I’m out. YUM!

TheTeaFairy

Oh, the «just in case pouch», you carry one those too?

Em

Don’t leave home without it :)

I love the idea of emergency purse tea.

They’ve finally quit looking at me funny at our Denny’s when I pull out my own bag and ask for hot water.

Just finished reading Sense & Sensibility this weekend. In celebration, I am enjoying a good cuppa and watching the delightful film adaptation with Emma Thompson & Hugh Grant.

swoooooooooon I still need to start reading Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters! I’m almost done the last Game of Thrones book. =3=

:) Just realized that this was my 100th tasting note. Crazy.

Steepsterizing just kind of sucks you in. ;)

Hours at a training meeting today were brightened by the thermos of this tea.

Learned today that the number one identifier of abuse is isolation. Sometimes this world makes my heart hurt.

drank Maple Cream by The Whistling Kettle
207 tasting notes

What could make a Sunday afternoon more comfortable? Ah yes, a maple cream tea latte sweetened with maple syrup. Perfection. How will I ever drink this tea any other way?!?

Downton Abbey marathon in preparation of the series 3 premiere tonight!! Anyone else excited??

gmathis

Are you kidding? I dreamed Downton Abbey dreams last night :)
