drank Anjou Pear-adise Oolong Tea by Teavana
4942 tasting notes

another from the omgsrsly sample box of doooooom. I’m trying to make a concentrated effort to get a couple of sipdowns in every day to make up for lost time, ESPECIALLY now that i’m basically going to be travelling for the entire month of september…which may not result in a lot of opportunities to buy tea but i DO get a week back in chicago and i KNOW i can buy tea there lol this was a cold brew and not bad. it’s passable as an almost pear tea, while at least being a decent cup of tea without weird bitterness or silly flavours. I’d love more OOMPH but this one wasn’t terrible, esp considering it’s a teavana tea!

Travel for a month??? I’m so jealous. Even if it is for work and not vacation (though I hope at least part is vacation). I love going, no matter the reason. :)

Sil

you’d think so… but i’ll be in places likes APPLETON! or wausau!…clearly thrilling places to go. lol i WILL be in kansas city for one day, but i’m not sure if i’ll get the chance to meet up with you since i have to drive out to st louis the next day…it’s one of those "in a new place every night’ sort of sucky deals lol. Only upside is a couple days in st louis to meet my tea sister; extra days in orlando to see my adopted “family” and hopefull a few extra days in phoenix before the last event.

Some great tea stores on your way!

Check out Verdant (duh) and Tea Source while you’re in Minneapolis! Coffee and Tea Ltd is also decent for flavored teas. I haven’t tried their non-flavored teas yet.

Mandala isn’t that far of a drive from Minneapolis – just sayin’

MzPriss

And no, I haven’t been to either, but I checked :)

Sil

Mzpriss – yeah i’m hoping i’ll get a chance to hit verdants tea room for fun and possibly mandala…but the timing is going to be really tight!

thanks for the suggestions MJ – will totally keep that in mind!

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.
