oooooh man. today this was sublime. maybe it was the two minute steep or the rainy day..but this was exactly what i wanted it to be today and more. love garrett;s teas! wish i could partake in the sale ending today :(

Matt Warren

It was also really tempting for me to partake in the Mandala sale! I had to remind myself that I had plenty of tea to enjoy and explore, some of which I’ve never even tried.

Sil

hehe i’m finally getting my cupboard under control so i’m trying to make small orders infrequently heh.

boychik

I got a lot of pu samples. By the time I try them they already sold out.

Sil

haha that’s part of why i want to get my pu samples under control…so that when i get more in, i try and and buy a cake right away hahaha i DID buy the one apricot cake you guys were happy with…

drank Buttermilk Lemon by TeaGschwendner
5241 tasting notes

this one worked a little better today. I actually preferred it as it cooled, so maybe i’ll try this as a cold brew. I’m still not quite getting buttermilk but as i do like the base, i can see finishing this off. Not a reorder for me, and i’m glad to be getting the chance to share with a few folks :)

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

hmmmmmmm..although this one has been in it’s tin, today it feels like the flavouring is a little weaker than it used to be. Maybe i didn’t get enough melon flowers in this cup lol. I’m almost out, but it was nice to revisit this one today on a gloomy, rainy afternoon!

noms. at this rate i’ll be through all my WP teas in record time! I think i’ve been starved for new straight teas so these have been a welcome addition to my rotation. Not much to keep on saying about this one beyond the fact that it’s a great little tea full of delicious cocoa notes and a slight sweetness that makes me smile :)

mmmmmm boychik sent this one my way and ive been saving it for a day when i could drink it all day long! :) Rather than take a long series of notes on this, i wanted to just sit and enjoy it. Overall impressions – this is a fantastic puerh! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great journey.

this was a bold, strong tea to begin with and lasted for maaaaaaany maaaany steeps. Initial steeps were sort of earthy but also sweet and smooth. i picked up leathery notes and what i guess i would call sort of citrusy? i think i’m going to have to track this one down and pick up a cake. thank you so much boychik. I’ve really loved some of these fantastic offerings you sent my way!

boychik

yay! its an excellent pu. i got it fr Aliexpress, cheaper than on ebay. and its very good seller, mrmpar approved. let me know if you want a link ;)

mrmopar

I like this one a lot Sil. I have 3. One for me , one for me..oh I said that, and one for the grand-son. He likes it as well.

Sil

boychik – may take you up on that in a few weeks. lol i’m trying to get through more of my puerh since i still have a lot of samples kicking around and want to get through those so i can start picking up cakes lol don’t tell my other half haha

boychik

Just now ups truck was passing by and my hubby says : “oh look mommy getting new tea”. The truck didn’t stop. I demanded an apology ;)

mrmopar

Sil if you ever need to know where to get any puerh let me know. I know most of the sellers.

Sil

boychik – hahahaha
mrmopar – i will likely take you up on that eventually. esp if it involves aliexpress…that place overwhelms me like nobody’s business

mrmopar

boychick, I bet you had it forwarded to a neighbor (:

boychik

I need to find someone, mrmopar :D

mrmopar

Don’t feel alone. I have a box stashed in between the couch cushions that I haven’t had a chance to move in the tea room yet.

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA

i pulled this one out this afternoon as i wanted a bit of a break from some of the caffeine. I have a bunch of this but now that it’s moving in to fall, i tend to forget about my fruity teas. i really enjoy this one and i’m glad i picked up more of it. i always want to eat the giant cherries, though i haven’t yet succumbed heh

oktoberfest + cacao + vanilla powder = delicious random steeping. Terri put the idea in my head a while back and i haven’t had a smokey tea until now to try it out with. soooo yummy!

Stephanie

Sil

oh yum. what a lovely tea to start the day off with. It’s sweet and delicious – no bitterness or astringency. I love this tea a whole bunch. I also really enjoy that different companies have this tea and they’re all a little different. Some have been smokey, others, like this one are sweet without any hint of smoke.

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.
