drank Orange Fountain by Island Rose

holy mother of something…THIS is orange! It kinda reminds me of orange syrup…the stuff that is the concentrate of the orange pop you get in restaurants. a little more sour, but over all generally that was the taste. I’d probably love this much more if i could’t taste the stevia coming through, but even at that it was still a really tasty cup :)

free sample from my order. I was looking forward to trying this one to see whether it stodd up to some of my other shou favourites. I have to say, i’m sort of glad that it didn’t. While it was a pleasant enough shou, it was pretty middle of the road and generally average. on the earthy woody side and smooth enough in it’s finish. nothing to write home about.

free sample from teavivre! thank you angel and the rest of the teavivre folks!

this one is not my favourite green from teavivre. it’s slightly vegetal but lacking in that really FRESH! taste that i’ve come to love from other teavivre’s green teas. this was a little green bean like…a little grassy and overall pleasant even if it won’t be a favourite of mine. Thanks a bunch teavivre!

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA

hot brew – there’s a cold brew in the fridge waiting for me as well..

this is sorts of like pineapple gemaicha. Toasted rice, green tea, pinapple chunks….all smells point to yes! However, brewed up, it’s a little too sweet for me with a slightly burnt taste that comes through along with the juicy pineapple. Overall, not a bad little tea but i’m curious about the cold brew :)

drank Billy Tea by Tea Leaves

tea from beelicious! this was an interesting one that she added to our swap. I’m all for surprises so i didn’t really know what to expect when i brewed this one up. this is essentially smoke + eucalyptus. This almost works for me…almost. The smoke is more campfire smoke than the more subtle smoke that i love. however, it’s an interesting blend and i’m glad for the chance to try it. :) thnaks bee!

Farewell delicious tea! Hopefully i’ll be able to pick up a little more of this one before the lot sells out…i think that i prefer the yuchi in this run but this one is still an excellent taiwan fruity delicious tea.

Terri HarpLady

Makes me reminisce about our first TTC order :)

Sil

sending you a little of this one fyi

Terri HarpLady

I’m gonna send you a small package sometime in the near future. I promise, it really will be small, just a few things, but I think it will be fun.

Sil

drank Breakfast Tea by Dammann Freres

picked up a couple bags of this while in paris from the hotel. preferable to lipton but still a relatively middle of the road tea. must have ceylon in it as those are the dominant flavours…a little astringency but overall not too shabby for a hotel room tea :)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, it could have been Lipton, LOl

drank Caramel Tea (Thé Caramel) by Lipton
6321 tasting notes

thank you MissB for sharing this with us. I had this a couple days ago and mostly what i remember was a strong caramel taste. it was super sweet, so more caramel than tea but it was a delicious cup of dessert heh :)

MissB

All of the Lipton’s were junky, candy tea. Well, along that dessert line anyway. Glad it worked for you!

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.
