let me start this by saying i hate mate. Every time i have it, i am not a fan. However, i ADORE chocolate orange. So i tried this. the smell is amaaaazing. delicious chocolate orange and yum all around.

taste wise…i can ALMOST get over the mate because of the delicious chocolate orange. almost. I see how the mate adds to that thicker feeling….but i wish i could take this flavouring and add it to a malty black tea. THAT would be fantastic.

smells like strawberry…. tastes, largely just like strawberry. There’s no trace of the lychee flavouring in this cup. the flavouring is really light though…and disappears some times throughout the sip. not great… not terrible in the drinking sense, just lacking.

smells like…. something familiar..not quite pineapple but sort of if you really think hard about it.

tastes like… burnt fake pineapple. if that makes sense. there’s another flavour here i can’t place that is fruity…somewhere in between pineapple and peach…but there’s a burnt taste here. Funnily enough, i don’t hate this nearly as much as others have… it’s in pineapple/ not really..but it’s not bad haha

drank Rum Vanilla by Island Rose

HOLY RUM…oh and a little vanilla. haha this smells like an insanely creamy rum cocktail. Kinda makes me long for my caramel rum milkshake heh. all that being said, there’s an after taste to this that i’m not a fan of it’s a bit artificial like..and reminds me a little bit of medicine from when i was a kid. greats to try though and i appreciate the sharing of tea bags with me from tea friends!

this was a tasty treat today – a deliciously guava like tea with ginseng. I think in the grand scheme of things, i could have done without the ginseng but the guava flavouring was spot on. really interesting tea to try!

I had similar tea today from The Hawaiian Islands Tea company – Mango Maui! It was delicious.

Where did you pick these up? I can only get them from a friend who travels back and forth to Hawaii.

not sure if this was an old tea bag or what..but i might as well have been drinking water. I think i’ll stick to fresh tea for my straight greens.

I had this again today and it was MUCH more delicious and exactly what i was looking for. The right balance of malt and strength in a tea. Will it replace other favourites in my cupboard long term? no….but i will enjoy drinking this one as long as i have it

this is my puerh for the day…though i may take a second one out. The rest of my tea drinking will be trying to work through some of the tea bag samples that i have so that i can get my cupboard down to a more manageable size again. I’m seriously behind in my sipdowns.

this was a sample from Wymm tea and their only shou offering this time around. I’ve previously had one of their other grades of this tea but it’s hard to recall the specifics of the brew to really do a fair comparison. initial steeps it’s a little woody…some fermentation sort of flavour going on…but a nice smooth delicious shou. will be interesting to see how this plays out the rest of the day

well i found a way to save this a little… added a bit of the last of my yu lu yan cha before brewing. it helped to even out the lackluster performance by this past season’s harvest of zhu rong.

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.
