thank you Kittenna! This is one of those tasting notes that makes me sad because I was never able to pick this up myself. And it’s good. i very much appreciate the share from Kittenna today and will be resteeping this until the flavour is dead. This is juicy and delicious and everything in between here and there and everywhere. I am a fan! I don’t get a lot of chocolate notes from this one but that’s ok by me. I can mostly smell them versus tasting them. Seriously. delicious! So sad i missed out on this one.. sniffles

drank Scandale by THE O DOR
5605 tasting notes

this was my morning tea since i needed a bit of a PUNCH. I did no rinse or anything like that and this morning it was a dark brew with just the right level of cinnamon running through it. slightly sweet but not cloyingly slow and the puerh still came through. Resteeping it now that i’m home and this is a still a great dark brew but now i’m getting a little more vanilla cookie like taste coming through along with the cinnamon.

Cavo – this is the one you need to remind me IN FUTURE to set aside for you to try :)

Also…thank you missB for accommodating my wish list and finding this one for me!


I will try. I will add it to my wishlist! :D

drank Caramel avec Fleurs by Jardin du Thé
5605 tasting notes

Another delight from MissB I just should have asked her to buy 100g for me lol This is deliciously caramel and wonderful. And even though I said i would keep it all for myself, Whatshesaid did ask for some of this, so i’ll share… i guess sigh so good… so yum.

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
5605 tasting notes

this + cacao = my tea for travelling to and from the festival today. I’m utterly exausted today but it was well worth the trip to go there and back before babysitting tonight as i found the teaware i wanted and got to spend some time with the girls. Always nice to catch up. Now that i’m home of course, i just want to go take a nap. ugh.

Tea Sipper

mm… Laoshan and cacao.

drank Pause Goûter by Jardin du Thé

this is another from missB that she sent on for whatshesaid. Given the smell, i couldn’t simply pass it on without trying a bit, so i snuck a tiny cups worth from the bag to try. This one will be hard to let go. hahah it’s a delicious hazelnut, vanilla. Probably one of the best that i’ve had in a while.

This was one from MissB that i pulled out today. Sadly it was hours ago and i’m really just noting this here. i REALLY loved this cup while i was drinking it today… reminded me why i love those “fancy french teas” :)


pistachio …mmhhhh

another one from what-cha that i’m a fan of. i’ll be passing the rest of my sample over to terri so that she can check out this company as there are a few here i think she’d enjoy trying out!

sooo many teas in my cupboard and that number is just climbing haha hard to believe that i was at 75 in december….and in the nearish future i may be damn near pushing 200 lol it’s ok though since a lot of them are smaller sizes that i can sip down in a couple of cups. PLus it gives me incentive over the year to really stop buying teas to get down to 50 by the end of the year haha.

this is is a really nice tea and one that i’d consider getting again if the price point was compareable to other malty sort of teas that i like. A nice find from what-cha!


Oh Sil, I would love to be down to fifty with a clear conscience. Maybe that should be my goal! My cupboard doesn’t include samples so I have a looooong way to go. I have given away so much and have just started setting it out for almost ALL of my students. We are working on it, so you go, girl!


i got down to 75 last year…. this year i’m knocking 25 off that to see if i can get there by dec 31. It’s a fun game to play with myself…even if i don’t achieve it…it’s incentive enough to keep me focused hahaha

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
5605 tasting notes

i have been digging this tea lately at night…not sure why but i’m going with it…esp since it’s one of the larger quantity of tea that i have from david’s and that doesn’t happen often. I have been out of sorts a bit lately with work and lots of tea incoming and trying to get organised…my tea cupboard is currently out of control but i’m ok with that since it gives me motivation to sipdown over the few months coming up AND more incentive to not buy tea… I figure i’ll sort things out after i get through the tea festival this weekend..provided that the last of my tea shows up as well..otherwise, all bets are off until mid february lol

Final Count: 116 (but let’s be honest, it’s likely closer to 200 by the time everything gets here…)

drank Honey Pear by Golden Moon Tea
5605 tasting notes

Dexter sent this one my way and i’m really glad i got the chance to try this as it would have likely ended up one of the ones i would have ordered eventually. I’m not a fan. lol I get very little honey and no pear…instead it’s sort of just a weirdly tasting cup of tea. It’s just not delivering on anything that i hoped it would. :( Thanks for sharing though dexter! i appreciate it!

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.
