man another winner from Terriharplady I’m so terribly torn because after trying out these three from A&D i really want to order the tiger assam but holy crap that’s 4.4oz. That being said it appears to be free shipping today, even for the 25$ priority shipping to canada…so that would be a serious win if i do it.

This tea? Also a great one, though if i had to pick only won, the tiger assam would win first since it’s such a great smooth blend. This one has that same smoothness but there’s an added splash of bitterness in the cup that goes well with the tea but makes it just a little less delicious than the other. So glad i got the chance to try these since the 4.4oz is for sure a barrier when you’ve never had even a try. :)

Just go for it, I got the three pack like a crazy tea hoarder. :)

Sil

haha if i do it, it’ll likely just be the one since i find 4oz a lot to go through because i have so many tea varieties in my cupboard.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I got the three pack, plus the 4th tea. There’s just no sense of self-control in my life! I’m glad you enjoyed it, I thought you would, & I agree, the Tiger Assam is the most awesome! :D

Cavocorax

:P Glad to hear the Tiger Assam is the best because that’s the one I gambled on and bought. Also, I like the pretty tin.

Sil

The 4th tea is a giant no for me given its a dreaded bergamot tea

Anyanka

Finally, a fellow bergamot hater! Ptooey.

Sil

lol yeah no. bergamot is just. wrong. I think the only tea with bergamot in it that i like is upton’s earl grey creme i think it was? because to me it’s just a lemon custard flavoured tea. lol

Terri HarpLady

Bergamot is very iffy for me. For a long time I hated every bergamot blend, but there are a few I’ve tried lately that have actually been pleasant! Smith’s is probably the best one I’ve ever had, & A&D’s is good too. I think most companies use cheap/phony flavorings, rather than real bergamot oil. Mostly I avoid them, but I’ve been on a bergamot sampling thing for a few weeks, mainly to add some novelty to Tony’s life, as he LOVES earl grey, & also to inform myself of his preferences for future presents, LOL. He LOVES the one from Smith, he even asked me last weekend, “Did you bring that awesome Earl with you?” Now I have a few that I like, although I still prefer straight Black.

Sil

well i know you sent me a couple so i WILL be trying them :) maybe i’ll find some unexpected enjoyment from a couple of them

Anyanka

DON’T DO IT! TURN BACK NOW!

Sil

Lol. I’m fairly confident you won’t lose me to the berg side :)

Terri HarpLady

Did I? I can’t remember. I know I sent some of the Dr Who blends for Kittenna that have earl grey in them: Tardis, River Song, & Farewell Ponds. I was thinking I spared you, LOL!

Sil

well it smelled like you did lol but i think they’re all a little cross smelly at the moment from travelling. :)

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.
