i think i prefer the other variation on this theme from this morning. this one is less…just “less” the cup isn’t as strong and to me it’s lacking in the flavour that the other cup was. It’s still a nice cup, and i’m glad terri shared it with me but overall, i’d reach for the other YS tea before this one :)

Since Stacy is going to be leaving the tea scene, i thought it might be nice to pull out the last little bit of this. I have enough for maybe another cup after this one and I’ll be enjoying it as i celebrate having been fortunate enough to begin my tea journey when Butiki was still around. Thanks for so many awesome teas Stacy!

Butiki Teas

terriharplady my dearest tea sisiter, let me have a bit of this when i was at her house exploring her teas haha. I have to say that this is a really delicious tea from YS. It actually hit the spot a little better than LB this morning, but don’t tell LB that! I brewed this one western for ease and was left with a really delicious, slightly sweet but malty cup of tea. i didn’t get much astringency in the cup, which was nice. I’ll have to try the other teal of this variety that i picked up from terri as well and see how it compares.

oh boy. it’s finally over. I’m home and not planning on going anywhere else unless it’s for vacation! this was one of my first cups of tea – having not really been able to drin much over the past 5 weeks. So nice to be back with my tea collection and able to drink my favourites and sample all the news teas i picked up last month!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
5074 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

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

Sil

boychik

Terri HarpLady

Sil

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA
5074 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

Sil

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. :)

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.
