I pulled this one out to try today. My other half and i didn’t get much done with errands but we did finally get around to cleaning the house – we’ve been letting that slide lately. This has been in my cupboard for an eternity…because i bought a bunch of puerh when i first got into tea and then was too scared to try it. So now i’m focusing on getting through all of the older puerh samples in my cupboard.

First few steeps were creamy…sort of prune like with later steeps being more vanilla and sweet like. This is one i might suggest for someone just getting in to puerh, and one that i should have had ages ago. Just might need to pick up a cake of this with my next mandala order.

so i’ve had this a couple times now…i’m actually surprised no one’s written anything about it. Long story short… it’s not bad, but it’s not my favourite. I’m thinking maybe jonesmcomgjonessrsly might find this one appealing since it’s on a base she loves. I’ll finish it if i must, but if it can find a happier home, that would be better. :)

Final Count: 106 (6 more to go for month end!)

Mmhmm, because she loves the base so much, I’d also suspect she would like it. I thought it was ok, but I preferred the nut flavourings with the base instead of fruity flavours.

this was another tea from today that i sadly just didn’t pay attention to. I was exausted after running around today and just wanted something warm and tasty. this fit the bill but outside of that….no idea lol thank goodness i’ve got more to drink and focus on!

i had this one today while my other half and i wandered about for a while. we tried out a london fog donut today as well…that was interesting and delicious!

this tea? I don’t remember much beyond being seriously satisfied that i’d pick this one to have today. I’ll have to have it again soon to get a better note. heh

The story of the travelling tea sample….this one comes to me from Terri… who received it from stephanie who got it from boychik who apparently got it from tea explorer? good times with tea friends! I’m not sure this one is for me, but i’m not sure it’s not for me either. I’ll have to try a few more heicha before i decide where i feel about all of these. the first few steeps where sweet with a strange taste to them….later steeps were a little darker… that’s all i’ve got as this was a yesterday tea :)

This comes my way from Stephanie via Terri. I’ll admit at first i was a little hesitatnt about this but figured what the heck! I’m so glad that i tried this out. Seriously..this is like iced coffee without the caffeine or that coffee after taste. i am a fan. I can see these being great for the summer – no fuss, coffee grounds or anything. yay!

jury is still out on this one…though i think it’s leaning towards “no thanks” i tried this one gonfu today, to try and get a better handle on it. it didn’t work. the first steep was amazing in it’s uniqueness and then later steeps went weird on me. I have no idea how to classify what i’m tasting here beyond “weird” and “different” haha I only picked up a small amount of this, so we’ll see how terri fares with this one haha since she wanted to try more CS teas :)

wheeeeee early morning tea..i’m all out of wack with my notes today. Not much to say on this one beyond the fact that it’s still a solidly delicious cup for my mornings.

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.
