drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas

Augh, this was incredible. I loved it just plain, but I was having it too late in the day and was going to be up all night visiting the bathroom so I was like: ADD MILK AND BROWN SUGAR, DRINK FASTERRRR and oh, man. Sweet yumminess. This is a keeper. I have 1 more sample here from cavocorax and then I’ll be making a wibbly face and making an order… ;)

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 45 sec

drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA

So interesting. Had this yesterday, after dinner. Idk, I’d need more to get to know it. But it smells amazing and I think I like it a bunch.

Cavocorax

It’s much better than I remembered too!
Apparently if you love-love-love it, you can order buttloads of it really cheap from the site: http://www.davidstea.com/web-specials ($18.75 for 8.8 oz? But that’s A LOT of tea)

Ozli

Oh jeez, if that was Cocomint I’d be like: OK! But but but.. yeah. That’s a LOT.

Cavocorax

Yeah I know! I basically bought that much of Read My Lips because it was $12 and I got all grabby handed when I saw it in store. :P So, I’m NEVER running out of that one.

Cavocorax

Oh! Speaking of Cocomint, Jackie T told me that she asked another company to re-create the blend for her. It’s basically identical: http://steepster.com/teas/simpson-and-vail/36741-jaclyns-cocomint-tea

It probably costs a lot to ship to us though. :(

yyz

Someone posted a while ago that if you contact simpson and veil directly you can negotiate a cheaper shipping fee. It’s also sometimes cheaper to but s&v’s teas on amazon. The are shipped from S&v.

Ozli

Iiiiiiinteresting! Thx :D

Ozli

[which totally lead to half-hour of browsing moar boardgames on amazon … whoops]

Whoops, I wandered off while steeping this. No matter, still good.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cavocorax

Hahaha. Did you add anything to it? Not sure if I could drink 8+ min steeped Earl Grey without a bit of milk to tone it down!

Ozli

no, i thought it was really good

ehehehhe but then, I love earl grey (i ttly just wrote earl GREAT and had to backspace)

Cavocorax

hahahah. Earl Great is TOTALLY valid.
I should send you some of the Kenyan Earl Grey I’m sampling from Justea. I swear it was almost lemon custard-y, although I don’t know how I managed that. It was great!

If I had monies, I’d totally contribute to their campaign: http://www.justea.com/#!/mainPage but you might be able to snag a sample if you email them.

I think cavocorax is right – this is spicier than the David’s Tea Pumpkin Chai – but the pumpkin chai is pumpkinier. Squashier? In my memories, anyway.

This tea is excellent. I’m enjoying it with my pumpkin cupcakes which are a bit overdry, so it’s working out wonderfully.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
