my other tea from this morning. Still amazing and delicious and wonderful. WTB autumn harvests already… lol i’m never as big a fan of spring harvests and i’ll have to restock this one eventually. Here’s hoping it lasts a little longer….

This is one of my favorite teas to steep Western style at my desk. I felt the Spring 2014 harvest was a little more flavorful than the 2013. Have not tried this in a Fall harvest yet. Will add a sample to my next order.

Sil

heh i liked the 2013 better but they’re both so tasty!

drank Cacao Tea by Herbal Infusions

added this to my LB today and it was delicious. I’ll say it again though…once this is gone i will never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever purchase a damn thing from herbal Infusions or the founder’s ventures again. Seriously terrible attitude to the customer in everything he does.

Stephanie

good to know

I’ll be getting my cacao from tisano after this i think. I’ve had theirs and it’s been even better than this version.

Worst customer service. No communication to the customer, and it takes week for them to ship. :|

drank Lime Marshmallow by Butiki Teas

i love this tea. Bumping up the rating as i had it today in a travel mug and it was super awesome for the day. Just the right blend of lime and creaminess from the marshmallow. damn going to miss these when they’re gone :(

Cavocorax

Dammit. I need this from you. >__> And J was sick all last week so I couldn’t tempt you into visiting!

Sil

haha. Yeah you have um a bunch of teas at my place. I’m on my own all weekend coming up so we could connect sometime this weekend

Cavocorax

Cool! I’ll keep that in mind – not sure what day we’re doing our game yet!

drank Berry Poppins by DAVIDsTEA
5925 tasting notes

Now that i’ve had this at home a couple times, i realise what was familiar about it – it has that same after taste, under taste that apple cider had. And while it doesn’t make me dislike the tea immediately, i know that if i had this in a larger quantity it would get old fast. Ignoring that, this has got a relatively nice berry taste and isn’t half bad. It just doesn’t have the longevity that other teas have.

Final Count: 124

That’s an interesting observation. I’ll try to see if I get that same undertone next time.

Sil

if apple cider has cream flavouring in it – it might be that… i was looking at the ingredients last night.

Passing the last little bit of this off to tea friends to try. I don’t think i’ve shared this one with them but if i have…well oopsy. lol Sometimes with all the swapping over time, it’s hard to remember which i’ve shared. This one is enjoyable but is fussy…sometimes it’s SPOT on…other times, not so much.

I don’t take this one out often because i never want it to go away but today i needed something light, and delicious and hell, it was a nice warm spring day today so it seemed fitting. Again, this one never fails to disappoint.

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.
