4942 Tasting Notes

Still finding this one not to my liking. Terri sent me home with a little more of this and after several tries of this one, it’s just not for me. In a way that’s great, because it saves me having another tea that i MUST HAVE haha. not a bad tea, just not for me :)

drank Chocolate Eclair by Fauchon

blech. for whatever reason i didn’t like this one. maybe it’s because it’s that whole fauchon oolong thing. ah well, still good to get a chance to try it. it was just really bland and very…meh

VariaTEA

When I saw the name I wanted this. When I saw the base, I did not. So I am glad to see I am not missing out.

Fjellrev

Chocolate and oolong just sounds… wrong.

Tuscanteal

Such a shame… I love eclairs.

wow a day and a half of working…careful now steepster, you’ll wear yourself out ;)

This hit the spot this morning. Somehow i brewed it just right and it’s a fantastic cup of tea this morning. that could also be, because i’m doing my usual stressing about the next leg of this epic 8 billion week journey. This morning it’s off to minneapolis, and the saddest part of all? Mandala is too far for me to travel to and verdant’s tea house is closed monday’s. bah.

So many shops here are closed on Mondays and it’s the weirdest thing ever to me. :P

Good luck on your Monday tea quest!

goodbye January tea! haha I only have 2 more teas to get through in order to be within 6 months of my oldest tea in my cupboard. Of course that means october i have 14 teas to finish up that are nowhere near sipdowns lol. i will likely pick this one up again in thei future. I just wish more of teavivre’s teas where in 50g bags as its challenging to want to pick up 100g of multiple teas at once – same reason i struggle with Norbu tea orders. :(

Shadowfall

You could always find someone to split teas with? Or maybe mention it to the Teavivre folks? Maybe they can work something out.

Sil

Yeah i keep meaning to send something to angel. Generally, that’s how i get around placing orders, split them with the crew here in Toronto. It would just make life easier to be able to order smaller quantites right away :)

drank Cacao by Tisano
4942 tasting notes

picked this up with terri as i suspect the version from traveling tea is this version since it’s named tisano cacao. so i suspect they get it from tisano. Since i’ve wanted to try tisanos version, picked some up. I’ll have to do a comparison later against the stuff from HI and see which i prefer. for now though, this was a tasty cup!

(cupboard is around 127..down from 134 thanks to my overnight)

another tea from the week, and another tea i picked up with terri. I seem to recall this one being more ginger than anything, which suits me fine as there was a citrus edge to it…just not as strong as i’d like. better notes on this later if steepster stops being annoying.

drank Cacao Chai by Traveling Tea

had this one a while back. all i can remember really is that it reminded me a little of “after dark” from steam…only with tea in it heh. more to come later since this is one of the teas i picked up while in st louis with terri :)

mmmmm thanks for sharing this one with me terri. I really enjoyed this one from WP. It’s a different sort of keemun than the ones i generally prefer..less malty, more chocolatey. this will be picked up :)

Cameron B.

I love and miss this tea! :P

Sil

it’s nice because it’s different from other keemuns

Cavocorax

Interesting! I’m a fan of ‘more choclatey’. :P

Sil

I ordered some Cavo – i’ll share when it gets here. you have a box to pick up at my place anyways

Sil

cameron – BUY MOOOAAR! lol

Cavocorax

I do? From the terri-tea-pocalypse? :O
Thank you! I really need to start ordering again so that I have SOMETHING to send in return!

Sil

some from terri, some just from my cupboard…i dunno…stuff. it’s been a few months :P

Cavocorax

Well, I shouldn’t be surprised. :P You’re the most generous of tea-frens!

nope. still don’t like this tea even with the newer version. The ingredients just don’t seem to blend well for me, and it becomes mostly a lapsang tea….which i like, but then what’s the need for everything else in it :)

the first time i had this via cavo, it was good but not great. this time, courtesy of terri, it seemed to be a richer tea. maybe it’s the harvest of the tea or something but i quite enjoyed this the other day when i had 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.
