drank Green Rooibos Citron by Adagio Teas
1157 tasting notes

Still the only non-fandom Adagio blend I keep in stock at all times — which is funny because I hoard it, when I know I can grab more anytime I want. Need to drink this more often, and try it iced!

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

I too hoard on some tea I don’t even need to cause they are still available…it’s like having a security blanket or something :-)

drank Tension Tamer by Celestial Seasonings
1157 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking this almost nightly the past two weeks, just haven’t been logging anything, sadly. I like it… it soothes me, I find it appealing and comforting in a very herbal/creamy/sweet way, and it definitely helps me pass out sooner than if i didn’t drink it. Upping the rating, because I obviously enjoy this more than a 70 rating.

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

I used to drink so much of this one when my kids were young.

Dunno why this is called cappuccino anything, it’s just a caramel rooibos. A nice one at that, but I was hoping for a coffee replacement in a decaf tea when I grabbed this. Nothing wrong with it, just… not as described.

Flavors: Caramel, Cream

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA
1157 tasting notes

So… uh… I drank a whole 50g of this before I even got around to logging it. Darn you, Sil, for suggesting this! It’s excellent, I do love it, and now I have to get more. The empty bag is calling to me, and it’s all I can think of. Darn it!

Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Hahahaha that’s even funnier to me because I’m so not a fan of a David’s tea….but this one was tasty :)

You and me both (now) and yet…

drank Lime by Perennial Tea Room
1157 tasting notes

Was thinking of this for an iced tea when I grabbed it, and I think I’ll need to try it as such to really give it a decent rating. It’s a very smooth, subtle cup, with only a hint of lime in it for me, along with something that’s not reacting well to my lips/tongue. I’m finding myself itchy/feeling like there’s an allergic reaction happening on a smaller scale.

Flavors: Lime

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Huckleberry Tea by Market Spice
1157 tasting notes

Grabbed every single tea I could at Market Spice at the Pike Place Market in Seattle this weekend, because they sell it in one-bag pouches for sampling, or loose in the tiniest of tiny bags for whatever amounts to $0.94 USD. This was one of their in-house blends and in a single teabag to boot, and I kinda wish I’d grabbed more now. Smells very sweet and strongly so, and tastes pretty much the same – even though I oversteeped it by a huge amount, there was zero bitterness or astringency. Would be fantastic iced!

Flavors: Berries, Lime

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 7 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Thai Tea by Perennial Tea Room
1157 tasting notes

Had my first cup of this today, from a tea-buying spree in Seattle this past weekend, where among other things I attended The Film School, and ran into Kevin Smith and Jason Mews in my hotel elevator. It’s a nice, solid Thai tea, although I had to oversweeten it (like a traditional Thai iced tea) to have it taste authentic. I can see myself really enjoying this!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Flowers

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

You ran into Kevin Smith & Jason Mews? Soooo jelly…

MissB

It was so surprising, and exciting! Kevin didn’t seem social (I found out later they’d just come from a show), but Jay was all sad/quiet until he was recognized, then he lit up and chatted a bit.

Profile

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

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.

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.

Burnaby, BC, Canada
