2014 yuckier harvest of this one + cacao = much more drinkable. Very nearly done with this one and happy for it. here’s hoping 2015 is a better year!

Zhu Rong never made a huge impression on me, so I didn’t order any 2015. I have 2015 LB and three more (JinJunMei, YuLuYanCha, WuYi GongFu) on the way. Let me know if there are any you would like to sample.

Sil

will do. Good for the time being so far :)

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea

no reason to save this, as it may never be available again, so I’m continuing to work on drinking it up. Not as tasty as the first few times i picked this up, but still ok nontheless. Looking forward to seeing what new blends verdant will have in future.

as long as they don’t involve intelligent nutrients. ugh.

my notes on this one seem to have poofed, though i know i’ve had it before. long and the short of this is that it’s a really nice tea. It’s not a fruity sort of tea, nor an overly malty one. It sits somewhere in the middle with a roasty, caramel, burnt toast sort of feeling to it. A medium strength in brew…and something i ended up gulping through this morning in an effort to try and wake up! :)

yep. still enjoying this one. Made a few cups of this as a cold brew yesterday – it’s really freakin’ hot here in toronto… and drank them all while playing some games last night. I am a fan, though it’s not exactly a shirley temple…but it does make up for not having any of my snow cone left.

so i also had this as a cold brew last night. SO GOOD. i’m kicking myself for only getting 50g because this is how companies need to do teas that taste like actual cocktails.

Sil

i am sad i didn’t get more.

drank Teapuccino by Tea Gschwendner

this was the only black tea i allowed myself to purchase this past week because it smelled super interesting (it also helped they were out of stock of a bunch of my favourites). They blend this one in house, so it’s not available through the online store. It’s like a chai sort of tea, but not. the caramel and ginger take it a litle step away from feeling totally like a chai tea. I want to try this as a latte though, as i think that’s where the blend will really pop. it wasn’t bad last night – i was getting caramel as well as that chai feeling, but i kept wondering how it would blend with the milk.

drank Gregory's by TeaGschwendner

Another one from last night – another delicious fruit tea from tea G. this one was sour and sweet but had almost a caramel note to it, though there isn’t caramel in it. another blend with hibby, but also blackberries and red currants, making it a little different from the usual. Will need to try this one cold brewed as well :)

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.
