drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
5059 tasting notes

i tried this as a sample while at David’s today. I don’t recall much about it, besides finding it rather tasty. I picked up some more to play around with at home, since i think this might do well as a latte given the flavouring. over all though, the only “pumpkin” tea from david’s that appealed to me after smelling them all.

Tea Count: 138 (was supposed to try and get to 90 by the end of september…way to go terri! and nicole…i’m putting that all on your two! lol)

Terri HarpLady

Oh well, lol, I’m back up to 380 or so, & although it’s mostly my fault, you & Nicole helped :). You’ll be proud of me to know that I haven’t ordered any tea since our visit, even though I have money sitting in my playpal account whispering, “spend meeeee”. Also, I’m starting to line up teas for another addition of *Little Terri’s Ultimate Sipdown Extravaganza!" :)

Sil

i’ve been bad… i ordered the 1 tea sample for us from misty peaks… and then whispering pines things… and now i’m staring at stacy’s teas to try all the new ones before black friday…

Terri HarpLady

Yeah….I was just loitering on Stacy’s page…sigh…

Sil

i picked up a couple… and i’ve got enough tea desires to place another order later when she releases a few more teas

drank The Big Chill (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I had this tonight as well – though i was worried it might actually make me sleepy as that seems to be it’s selling feature. Of course, it didn’t. That being said though, this was a tasty cup and nice to have as a herbal option for me today to help fight the sick!

caile

Hope you feel better soon!

Sil

boychik

Terri HarpLady

Sil

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA
5059 tasting notes

I picked up a little more of this today as it seemed to be just what i wanted given that i’m sick. I like this one a lot more than others but, that being said, it still isn’t anything i need to have in my cupboard for long. It’s one of those teas that you know would lose it’s appeal (or is that a peal? apple-y) after having mulitple cups. Still though, great cup for watching game of thrones with my other half tonight before i’m off again in the morning.

Amariel

I have a small amount of this and something just rubs me the wrong way with it. I can’t put my finger on it. Luckily I only have a small amount. I might cocktail it with another tea to get it down.

Safe travels and get well, Sil!

LiberTEAS

I love Joseph Wesley teas!

Sil

they are great. I’ve had a number of samples of them but haven’t been able to get my cupboard down enough to place an order…but they’re on the list!

mmmmm this was one of the teas i snuck from terri when i was visiting her. I’m trying to get through some of my samples so that i can get back to focusing on my larger quantities of teas. This is a really smooth tasting tea. Now, granted i’m a little sick so i’m not sure i’m catching all the nuances today but it’s a rather pleasant cup of tea today. Not overly malty, but still has some maltiness to it. It’s smooth, and there’s no astringency to this. The description mentions floral notes, but i’m not getting any of those, and that makes me a happy camper. Is this better than my favourites from Yunnan? Nope. But i wouldn’t turn a cup of this down for sure. :)

drank Lattakoojan Assam by Butiki Teas
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! this was my other cup of tea from this morning, mostly because I’m feeling guilty that i’m so far behind in my sipdown goals….because i lost a month of tea drinking AND continued to buy things LOL. and pick things up from terri… eep! Back in chicago tomorrow as well, so i need to try my best not to pick up more tea from tea gsch… or adagio while i’m there…. heh.

this was a nice cup of tea for today…the weather is MUCH cooler than phoenix lol and being sick = i want comfort. :)

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
5059 tasting notes

oh man… 6 weeks down of this travelling thing for work and i’m ALMOST at the end of this. I’m home for a day, which has basically allowed me to switch out my suitcase and be off again tomorrow morning. I managed to relax just a little in phoenix, so my body decided to get sick. Thank god there’s only 2 more days of travelling and then i’m done for a time. It’s been a great experience but seriously, going for a month without my tea is not a good time. So of course, first cup today was this one :) good ol’ reliable. i love this tea.

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
5059 tasting notes

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.

Cameron B.

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

Lariel of Lórien

Good luck on your Monday tea quest!

Terri HarpLady

A lot of things are closed on Monday in St. Louis too, especially little shops & restaurants. Bummer you didn’t get to visit either place, but I’m SO glad you got to visit ME!!!

Sil

priorities terri…priorities haha you, THEN tea… haha

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.
