drank Mandarin White Puerh by Carytown Teas
207 tasting notes

What an interesting and beautiful tea. Cute little mandarin orange peels stuffed with beautiful white puerh tea.

I gave my leaves a rinse before brewing. I steeped it for a minute which I see was a bit long according to the directions here (no internet at home to check). Each sip brought different notes to light. My first sip tasted mostly like a white tea with a hint of orange at the end. By my last sip, I was tasting notes of honey and citrus. I can’t wait to try the brewing instructions suggested above and see what comes from that :)

Thanks, sissy, for sending me this!!

drank Moroccan Mint by Harney & Sons
207 tasting notes

My sis is the best :) She sent me another tea care package! I have one going out to her tomorrow.

This was the first of the teas for me to try. I like the smooth mint flavor with the green. It soothed my dry raw throat. I could see this being my go to minty tea. Yum!

It has been a strange week without cable and internet. I’ve only had a chance to check out Steepster a few times. I’ve also not been drinking much tea this week. I think there’s some connection ;)

I’m at my parents and this was an option. I’m really digging the bright flavor and beautiful purple color. Drinking my 3rd cup as I type.

Both your brain and your character will be a lot stronger from doing without! (The electronic entertainment, not the tea ;)

drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
207 tasting notes

Enjoyed this last night while watching Love Actually. Thought they complemented each other well.

This reminded me so much of Della Terra’s Eight Candles. Caramel is much of what I smell and taste in the cup. The vanilla and caramel together make it taste like a toasted marshmallow. So creamy and delicious. Another tea to add to my shopping list. I may need to take another part time job to pay for my tea addiction :) 2 for 2 with Nina’s Paris!

Can I expect a delivery? :) This sounds yummy!!

Sadly, I only had enough sample for 2 cups. You’ll just have to order some and share with me :)

drank Hojicha by New Mexico Tea Company
207 tasting notes

Pausing from a very busy day to write something about this little bit of heaven I drank this morning. I had tried a hojicha from Den’s tea and loved it, so I thought I’d give this a try. It’s a nutty, toasty cup of awesome. I definitely will have a stash of this in my cupboard at all times. It tops my love of genmaicha.

Ok, back to work :)

drank Chance Combinations by Custom
207 tasting notes

So I have a tin of tea at church for when I need a cup of tea at work. It has genmaicha and I absolutely love genmaicha :)

Last week I brought some peach oolong with me in a sandwich bag to make. I had some left in the bag so I put the bag in my tea tin (without really thinking about what that would do to the taste of my genmaicha).

So this evening I made a cup of genmaicha and it was peach genmaicha. Surprisingly good. But not toasty genmaicha I was hoping for. C’est la vie.

On a totally different note, this is my last night on Steepster as I am giving up internet/cable until I pay off my student loans. You’ll be mostly seeing me post in the mornings :)

Austerity plans are painful but oh, so good when you reach the end of them! Hang in there!

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris
207 tasting notes

This tea really is dreamy! Caramel corn meets green tea in a wonderful carnival version of genmaicha. If I had to rename this tea, I would call it creamy caramel toasty popcorn.

Big thanks to Sophie and Laurent at Nina’s for this sample. I will definitely be purchasing this when I have a little extra $$ for tea. It will be a dessert tea staple in my cabinet.

Update: The cooler the tea gets the more caramel I taste. I bet this would be awesome iced. I MUST BUY THIS TEA!!! My cabinet demands this as a staple NOW!!

So excited to have caught the flash special at Whistling Kettle on this last week. I only have about enough for 2 more cups. Need to refill :) My love of green tea has grown with this, hojicha and genmaicha. All 3 will always be in my tea cupboard!

Tomorrow, I’m going to my favorite little tea spot for a free class on making your own tea journal. So cool! http://www.facebook.com/events/334497076655599/

drank Pomegranate Oolong by Harney & Sons
207 tasting notes

I love this tart oolong. For my Happy365 photo today, I made a photo sheet of my tea making process.

This tea is beautiful as the leaves expand and unfurl in my Teaze Infuser. It was fun to put this photo sheet together.

That is so cool!

drank White Coconut Creme by Art of Tea
207 tasting notes

This is one of the most beautiful teas I’ve tasted. The dry leaves and flowers are just lovely.

This is the strongest coconut flavored tea I’ve tasted. It has almost a buttery feel on my tongue. Loving it :)

I think it would make an excellent latte or iced tea.

Update: Made a foamy tea latte with second steeping. Yum!

Nicole

Sounds great! Another to add to a shopping list.

Em

Would you like me to send you some? I’d me more than willing.

Nicole

That would be great, Em! Shoot me a PM. :)
