last cup of tea for the evening – just wanted to something to drink really. lol finished adding things in to my cupboard and such and with my two orders i’ve gone from 69 to 87 and there is more on it’s way. I still haven’t finished getting through MissB’s teas that she sent me but i’m ok with that, those are works in progress and just slow my cupboard tea drinking down, but i don’t want to add them to my cupboard lol Still enjoying this one, but i don’t think it’s a repurchase for me. The 50g i got has been enough for me to enjoy and be ready to move on with.

Final Count: 87

tea from this morning and today, this tea was SPOT on….another i may need to toss on the side of NOT travel mug to finish drinking. Also means that maybe i need to really clean out the travel mugs and make sure they’re good to go again. this tea + waffles = happy times!

another from missB this one has pineapple in it…and as result, was a much tastier option for me versus paris singapore but still just wasn’t cutting it for me. LIkely the result of the “green” of the tea. I’m fairly particular about my green teas…most are not up my alley. Still though, for people who like green teas, this is a nice one.

Final Count yesterday: 69


I too am picky about greens!


69 is pretty amazing! I’m at 115. I’m hoping to hit 100 before I meet up with you…

Trying to catch up on ym tea drinking so that i can get my new teas in to my cupboard. I had this one a few days ago – it’s another from missB. Sadly, cherry for me either works or it doesn’t and this falls in to the “doesn’t” category. I’m ok though…more tea for everyone else to have! haha


I’m not keen on cherry in tea. I’ve tried a couple. Strawberry is where it’s at for me, berry-wise.


there are a few cherry teas that i LOVE…. but most of them are herbals heh

I really like Dammann’s cherry teas, but they taste more like dried cherry to me. :)


This was so disappointing for me when I had it too.

Another tea from MissB that i sadly ruined…so i’ll have to try again. it smells DIVINE! but it IS a white tea…and silly old me went and treated it like a black tea so it was an incredible smelling bitter brew :( the hints of what it would taste like though, lead me to believe that it will be a good one. we shall see!

I have a feeling that a friend of mine used to make me this tea when I went around to visit. If so, you’re deffo right about it seeming like a good one – it’s pretty delicious if you brew it “right”! :-)


that gives me hope lol


This was unbelievable when I had it in store.

I had this one earlier today – it was a little bitter for me today, so maybe something is out of wack with my taste buds. All i can say is that my coworker sure as hell better not have given me bronchitis. lol


I had it this afternoon too!

nope. not for me. I’ve had this a couple times now and it’s just not working for me. something about the green and the berries that creates a flavour that is completely disharmonious to my mouth. The rest of the ounce i purchase will be off to Terri so that she can give it a try!

Aww; that’s sad :(


My mom had some of this, which I tried about a week ago – it just tasted like Laoshan Green Genmaicha to me.

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.
