mmmmm tasty puerh. I’ve been sipping on this one over the course of the morning. Trying to stick with my focus on getting through some of my puerh samples. this is a fantastic puerh. I really need to buy more of this one – it’s similar to another from teavivre that i really enjoy. There’s something about how rich and full bodied this one is, without being overly earthy or leathery. On to my wishlist for sure as a cake order i think… this is a great every day sort of puerh…

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
5351 tasting notes

apparently when i picked this up, i’d forgotten that i’d had this a long time ago in a tea tasting note far away. Make note. DO NOT PICK THIS UP AGAIN NEXT YEAR SIL! yeah well i did..and i like it less than i did last year. this is like cardboard coconut macaroon. doesn’t help that i think of macaron’s when i think of this tea..which is a totally different beast of treats. anyway. glad that’s over. never again! haha

TeaBrat

I hate it when that happens :)

Sil

well if steepster cupboard would sort, along with tasting notes…it would happen less… but i’ve got 2149 teas rated… i’m sure as hell not going through page by page lol

yyz

Google your tasting note Sil, it’s what I do most of the time.

Sil

yeah, just a pain when i’m more about browsing…if that makes sense

Another tea from this morning. I only picked up a half ounce of this, so it’s almost gone already but it’s a great cup of tea. Smooth with that fruity tang i associate with a lot of taiwanese teas. really loving this one today :) thanks for such interesting straight blacks stacy!

whoohoo! finally on today’s teas lol this is pretty much my last day in november to drink teas given the travelling that’s coming up, so i’m trying to enjoy it. the snow is falling outside, and i’m sitting (in between working) in our kitchen nook watching it fall, drinking my tea. perfect only marred by the absence of my other half since he’s at work and can’t exactly do that from home. I do still enjoy this tea – it’s bold and strong and delicious. I just wish that steam would do 50g instead of this 100g crap. even if i adore a tea, i’d rather pick up 50g and place another order when i get through that amount – if only to keep my cupboard under control! thanks agin though for introducing me, omgsrsly :)

OMGsrsly

Snow. Snow? Just. Already?

OMGsrsly

THEY DO 50G! I have no idea why you had problems that one day. I’ve seen other people ask for 50g too. (Unless you’re just saying this because you want 100g After Dark, which could be arranged.)

Sil

hahaha we’re supposed to get 27cm or some nonsense like that? Which i’m ok with because i love snow..but not ok with if i get snowed in to chicago and miss vacation…

and i asked for 50g when i went and they said NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :( after dark is the exception to that rule….i feel like i could have a pound of that ant not get tired of it..except that i’m sure i would… but you know….

also..i totally set aside a sample to send courtney and she’s all mostly mia..so part of me is like…i could have that cup…and then buy more…and send her more later lol

OMGsrsly

I need to feel better before I go tea shopping and get you your After Dark to send.

Kittenna

looks up After Dark O.o

drank Eggnog by DAVIDsTEA
5351 tasting notes

backlog still..

not sure what possessed me to pick this one up. I don’t like eggnog, don’t like white chocolate and i’m not a huge fan of david’s….but pick it up, i did and i brewed this up last night while watching a movie with my other half. I’m not sure how i feel about this…it’s creamy…but it’s much more white chocolate to me than eggnog, which is maybe better for me given my intense dislike of eggnog and my only semi hatred of white chocolate…which just isn’t chocolate if you ask me :) I’ll finish the sample of this that i picked up, but that’s as far as that will go heh

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
5351 tasting notes

i picked up a little of this yesterday along with a couple other teas from david’s. As most of you know, i’m not overly a fan of their teas but i’ll try from occasionally just to see if there’s anything worthwhile. So far, i think i’ve found 2 teas? that i ever bought more than 50g of haha. This one isn’t bad, but on some levels, even though it’s got a weird taste to it, i like the apple cider tea a little better. I’ll drink the rest of this, but on the whole there isn’t much about this one that says BUY MORE OF ME! apple, little hint of vanilla…sweet. decent but pretty average.

drank Ambangulu - Tanzania by Tea Time
5351 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday. This was a great cup of tea yesterday! I am still working on some of my older teas but i’ve found that the few older ones i have left are much tastier when i drink them at home rather than on the go. so i’m trying that. :)

this version/harvest of this tea is still delicious…not sure what it was about that first harvest i had but i’m glad that this tea has only improved since the very first time i had it. Must remember that fall harvests are my preferred harvests :)

drank Traditional Yunnan by RiverTea
5351 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday – it was a surprisingly busy day for me. I’m still enjoying this one, though i don’t think i need to reorder it. I prefer the straight blacks from a vast number of other companies over this one. still a decent cup though!

drank Cacao by Tisano
5351 tasting notes

i actually made just this on it’s own tonight… last cup of the evening. This one makes for a richer, more dark chocolate cup than the herbal infusions version which is a little lighter. Works for me though, since i want my cacao to be strong and delicious and i just can’t get behind herbal infusions anymore with all the trouble friends have had. so yay for a new source of cacao!

It’s a shame, I would really like to try their strawberry version. :(

Sil

tisano has a strawberry version too… if i remember correctly…and mint..

LiberTEAS

I don’t think that they have a strawberry version … at least not yet. I love Tisano. I am sad to hear of the different troubles people have had with Herbal Infusions. But there are so many great tea companies out there, I don’t see the need to support the ones that aren’t up to par.

Cameron B.

I don’t see strawberry right now, but they do have vanilla. Yum. :D

LiberTEAS

I had some of the vanilla last night … it really is yum.

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.
