drank Pineapple Mimosa by DAVIDsTEA

cold brewed this one to try it and pulled it out after a day of epic riding with not one, but TWO epic (for me) crashes. While i knocked my head about 4 times today (kids, this is why you wear a helmet…), have scrapes and bruises all over all of me AND a sprained thumb… i DID get 5 personal records today AND i managed to get over a giant log hurdle that i’ve tried a few times now and failed on. So yay.

This tea, colde brewed without sugar is very much a pineapple mimosa. I don’t like mimosas…but i DO love pineapple. haha after i added a little sugar to the brew, it was much more pineapple and the champagne aspect of it backed of. Would i drink this one again? yep…but i also don’t feel the need for it to be in my cupboard…

Mountain biking I take it? That manages to beat even my boyfriend’s record of crashing twice in two months on his road bike. ;D

Hope you’re feeling okay (all things considered)

Sil

yeah mountain biking…I’m riding on a bike that’s a little big and this was only my second ride out using spd’s so i shouldn’t have been tackling as challenging a line as we were… i’m sore…but it was a good day. i beat the log.

Glad you are ok, Sil. Sounds like you might be needing to pick up some arnica gel or cream if you are going to make a habit of this. Wild thing, you.

Sil

i’m hoping NOT to fall down any more ravines if that helps haha

Evol Ving Ness

Yes, yes, I think that will help both of us.

Don’t like this one hot brewed. The taste is muted and not as good imo as the cold brew. oh well, glad i was able to try it both ways.

tried this one as a cold brew from david’s tea the other day. I kinda like this one, though i’m not sure if i’d keep it around to get though a while 50g…maybe 25g to see how that goes for the summer. It’s not terribly artificial tasting…just a mild sort of watermelon taste. I’ve got a tiny bit left so that i can try it as a hot brew. Cold though, that i can do.

Did this smell like bubble gum? I was in DAVIDs today and I could smell bubblegum but couldnt figure out where it was coming from

tried this one from davids the other day. not a fan. It reminds me of those artificial punches you can get, just more watered down. it’s not terrible, but it’s nothing i would ever reach for again. this is much more apple like…maybe a little cranberry…but there isn’t much pineapple or papaya. oh well, good to try at least.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
