drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

Why do my favorite teas taste less amazing in the Timolino? This was just barely okay, when I know I love this tea, and consistently so.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Shanti Ayurvedic Tea by DAVIDsTEA

Had this again a few days back; it was more peachy and flavorful, likely because I remembered it needs serious overleafing (2 tsp/cup).

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 15 sec 4 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Ah Kapha, I love you. Your spicy awesomeness always kicks my butt into gear, or at least my sinuses.

Gosh I’ve missed Drop Dead Diva, my junk-food-for-the-brain TV fix. This tea went along with it beautifully!

I love that series too. Been recording it on DVR, buy need to take some time to catch up on it.

I just starting watching it on Netflix. It is tons of fun so far. I was getting through the first season really quickly, but then I got distracted rewatching Grimm.

I’m sure that all these dutch licorice teas (the two that I have) come from the same company originally, I’m just stuck as to who that is exactly, so this review stays here.

Still a satisfying cup, and one that I’m really enjoying, although overleafing it a bit seems like my favorite way to have it.

Preparation

drank Rooibos Chai by Zen Tea
954 tasting notes

Still a smooth and straightforward chai, one that I know will stand up time and time again with mistaken re-steeps as well as purposeful ones.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
954 tasting notes

Had two huge cups of this last night, and this is one huge cup using those combined leftover leaves. The re-steep isn’t anywhere near as flavorful, but it’s still quite tasty. Increasing the rating as I think this has now become a staple in my house for when I’m feeling ill or off.

Had several cups of this last night, and now another today. Every cup has varied considerably, although this one was steeped for close to an hour, it’s my favorite of the group so far. Still less gingery than the last batch, but I’m okay with that. :)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Tonight, this smells and tastes weird, and I’m puzzled as to what’s different. Last night? Divine. Tonight? Messed up, weird.

Profile

Bio

Teaholic, with a leaning toward rooibos, green, puerh and white teas, although I’m trying some black tea again. Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; my only (within walking distance) choices are currently mall-bound. Still, I have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.

Location

Burnaby, BC, Canada
