omgsrsly this is great as a latte! i wanted a change of pace so i dug this one out to make as a latte. it’s really nice this way. I like this straight but as a latte it’s just a creamier delicious black current creamy drink. NOMS!

I never think about trying the fruit teas as lattes. Makes sense if you like pies a la mode or fruit with cream… Hm. I see experiments in my future.

Sil

haha yeah i’m not sure why this one popped in to my head to do that..but it did and i’m glad!

OMGsrsly

Good to know! :) I’m gonna have to try it.

i think this one came to me from missB this wasn’t quite drinkable for me today – something about the floral notes just turned me right off it. I’ve had it before though and didn’t mind it for a floral oolong so maybe just an off day today

Sarsonator

You are seriously out of control today! LOL

3 more sip downs! You can do it! :p

Sil

lol i’ve been up since uh… 7am on saturday morning?

Sarsonator

That’s some dedication!!!!!

Sil

work sucks. so i’m playing the sipdown game to make it at least bearable… considering i’ll have been up more than 36hrs by the time i get to bed.

and no..no i don’t recommend this much tea in a weekend but then, if you only 2 hrs over the weekend, it’s not as difficult as it may seem given how many hours there are in the day. I’m still working…the migration finished forever ago but i need to fin tune something i need to launch today…and it’s giving me all sorts of grief. Add to that, the ppl who were supposed to get crap to me last week…and promised it to me this weekend…still not in my inbox sigh i’m soooo tired. i just want to eat and go to bed. and not go to work for a week!

This one is from variaTEA and is my favourite so far of the victorias tea whatever whatever teas… this has a nice raspberry taste to it, though i’m not getting a LOT of litchi…but it’s nice…and refreshing and would probably make an excellent cold brew. so thanks for sharing!

i feel like there is WAY too much going on in this tea for you to really be able to actually taste all the things going on in this tea. it’s not a terrible tea or anything but when i look at what’s in here, and focus on the taste, it all kind of blends together to make “brown” lol

thanks again variaTEA (can you tell i’m finally getting to your sample box this weekend? lol) this one was actually quite pleasant. I’d need to be in the mood for a lapsang as this is a little more smokey than not smokey but it was a nice cup. hints of mint and…something else? made it more interesting than just a boring old lapsang heh

thanks again VariaTEA as these have been fun to try. this might be my favourite of the lot so far, except that there’s a bitterness in this one that i dislike. it also leaves me mouth feeling super dry. heh. BUT all that aside, this is a nice enough chai like sort of tea with just a hint of something sweet running through it. apparently that’s caramel but i am just not finding that..just “sweet” to me.

Go, go, go! You can do it, Sil! :P

this is another from variaTEA and while this one is minty fresh, i’m getting zero hazelnut, if that’s what this is supposed to be. to me this is just a cup of mint tea…with a different smell than normal lol ah well, it’s been a refreshing cup :)

VariaTEA sent this one my way. All i can say is that this is not a tea for me lol blerg!

VariaTEA

It wasn’t for me either. I wanted to love it though.

Roswell Strange

I didn’t like this one either :( But wanted to so badly because it was Wash… He deserves a better blend. Something weird and fruity to go with his personality; not terribly floral and “fru fru”. He shoulda been like a Pina Colada type tea, heavy on the pineapple :P

Memily

Lol Sil I love your notes.

Sil

Memily… Well glad they keep someone amused lol

VariaTEA sent this one my way and so today i thought it would be fun to go through as many of the Serenity Fandom teas as i could. This one was from earlier today as i’m still working ugh Sadly this one was just a muddling of flavours to me. i didn’t get much in the way of orange or chocolate..just a blend of a vaguely fruity sort of adagio black tea. :( it wasn’t bad but there wasn’t much distinct in here for me

I had this one earlier today as well when i wanted something a little lighter. This one was sent my way by omgsrsly likely via missB?? This one isn’t bad but it’s a little on the light side. While i’m not overly a fan of green teas, when i do have them, i like it when they’re a little more in your face in terms of their “green” flavour. this one seems almost subdued or something heh overall though, not bad just nothing to knock me off my feet.

OMGsrsly

I’m pretty sure it’s via MissB. :)

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.
