drank Champagne Cider by Butiki Teas
1792 tasting notes

Woo! I have more of this left than I thought I did! Enough for a GIANT POT or two more big mugs.

Apples and cinnamons and some light sweetness. I added honey by pouring the tea back and forth into a scraped clean honey jar. Just enough was left to add a touch to this tea. It just brings out the apple, and it’s so good.

ALSO, I made a pair of “jeans” last night. By “jeans” I mean they are stretch denim with none of the topstitching and they have an elastic waist. Haha. I wore them to work today and OMG, like wearing PJs. Too bad wearing them makes me feel old.

Oh well. Comfort over, well, most things really.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
OMGsrsly

My next pair will have pockets and top stitching. I am so excite.

TeaBrat

I think I am too old fro the stretchy jeans trend!

OMGsrsly

Noooooo, so comfy! They aren’t skin tight, they’re just slim cut trousers, made out of a stretchy dark denim! I see this style/shape of pants in some of the “old lady” brands, which I think is hilarious. Old ladies know where it’s at with the elastic waists. ;)

I live for stretch, man. Yesterday I debuted a new skirt I bought largely because it cost under £10 and had pockets, but that I thought was quite cool, and I swear that with the top and cardigan I had on, I looked like SUCH a grandma. I used to look cool! weeps

Maddy Barone

10 years ago it might have bothered me to look like a grandma. Now, though, give me comfort! LOL

Anlina

A friend gave me a bunch of pants from Ricki’s recently, and they all look like dress pants but they’re soft and stretchy and feel like wearing yoga pants. It’s the best.

OMGsrsly

Anlina, that was my inspiration!

I think my mom will laugh at me the next time she sees my wardrobe. :D

drank Caramel Pu Erh by Tea Desire
1792 tasting notes

Mmm…. steeped a bit longer than usual today, and it’s so good! Why haven’t I steeped this tea for 5 minutes before?

It’s not super sweet, but there is some caramel. Lots of tea flavour. So good with milk.

(This one is almost a sip down as well. I have quite a collection I could finish! Maybe this coming weekend. :) )

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank O'Connor's Cream by TeaGschwendner
1792 tasting notes

I’m sad that I only have 1 tsp left of this tea!

Oh well. It’s been a good run and I’ve enjoyed it. Maybe once my cupboard is smaller I’ll consider stocking it, because I do like how it tastes (little chocolate, little cream, little booze) and the name is HILARIOUS.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Aww, too bad those jerks won’t set up shop in Canada too.

OMGsrsly

I know! I should hassle Sil or MissB for more strawberry honeybush. It’s so dreamy.

Caramel flavoured gunpowder + black tea. At least, that’s what I can tell. The gunpowder was really spinachy for me tonight, and really… caramel is not a sauce I’d put on my spinach.

Otherwise, this tea is fun. And I love caramel. So I’ve drunk it all.

Thanks so much, Shmiracles! I think I’m almost through all the samples you gave me oh so long ago. :)

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
VariaTEA

Caramel spinach…something tells me that might not be the next big thing lol

OMGsrsly

You never know! Someone might decide that spinach and caramel should be The Dish for a fancy restaurant! ;)

VariaTEA

Or the next bacon and maple syrup…sweet and savory coming together to be friends :P

OMGsrsly

Except this is sweet and… grassy. At least bacon is meaty and satisfying!

VariaTEA

haha I was thinking that as I wrote it but you never know what people grab on to. Perhaps the use of spinach might lead people to believe there is health benefits to the pair just making it part of the health food trend. lol

OMGsrsly

Oh that would be entertaining. But now all I can think of is a spinach Creme Caramel. Which… Hmm…

Oh no! This one isn’t in my list. I think I got it from Dinosara? Maybe? Well, thank you, swap friend who shared this with me.

I still really like it.

Really caramelly. Very much the “Fauchon” taste again. Lovely with some milk.

I’d buy it, if it were readily available to me!

drank La Naissance by Fauchon
1792 tasting notes

Not as amazing as usual this morning. What did I do wrong? Is it because I’m craving a coffee? A huge mug of coffee? Mmm… Coffee.

Cavocorax

OMG. I’m dying for Tim Hortons rn. Stupid roll-up the rim contest got me addicted again!

OMGsrsly

I totally forgot to buy coffee yesterday, and now I am still in my PJs drinking wine and sewing trousers. So I’ll probably forget to buy it today too.

I’m almost ready to break into another package of this tea! That’s exciting. :)

I still love it. SO licoricey, no sweet aftertaste. THE BEST.

What’s also super fun is that once it’s steeped the leaves turn a mossy green. Whee!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML
Fjellrev

Best licorice tea EVAR.

OMGsrsly

Good thing I have 8 more ounces! :D

Fjellrev

Yay! I think I have 2 ounces but should be more than enough for me. :)

Cavocorax

Holy moly. That’s a lot! :D

OMGsrsly

I may have gone a bit overboard.

drank Lime Sage Rooibos by Cornelia Bean
1792 tasting notes

This isn’t my favourite tea because the rooibos is kinda heavy and overly present. However, it smells divine and has worked out really well this evening with half a spoon of Teavana’s Limeade Twist and 1/4 tsp honey.

Yum.

I think I need more.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Thanks so much for the sample, Dustin!

So. Orange and vanilla? Mostly I got rose and orange flower! Whoa! I did really like it though. It had that “Fauchon” flavour, in that it’s quite similar in base to the other teas I have.

Really sweet and desserty. Yum! If I saw it, I would probably get some. That being said, I do like Naissance and Un Soir de France a bit better. :)

Profile

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
