drank Ruby Red by DAVIDsTEA

mmm i think i’m torn on this one as to whether i like the cold brew or hot brew more. Both are enjoyable though i think the hot brew eeks out just a little as the winner. Mostly, because it makes the blend just a little smoother. It’s as close to ruby red as i imagine a brew getting to now that stacy’s gone. Not too shabby DT….not too shabby.

drank Raspberry Mojito by DAVIDsTEA

hot brew – not too shabby, I think i prefer this one brewed hot and then cooled. It brings out the raspberry flavour a little more, and lets the mint take a smaller role. Still not a smashing success for me, but i understand why folks would enjoy this. tasty enough to try but that’s all i need from this one.

dear god…yes. I pulled this one out this morning because i haven’t had it in a bit and it is still as wonderful as i remember. delicious creamy caramel. melted butter and deliciousness. so good.

Dexter

But it’s an oolong…. :)

Sil

yes…yes it is..a GREEN one too!

I’m on my second steep of this one today! I think Fauchon’s version juuuust edges this one out for me, but I love having it in my cupboard and cup for sure.

Sil

fauchon edges out in front for me simply because of the price difference. Cheaper and VERY close in taste.

dexter sent me this to try and today i tried to compare it with the 2014 version. I’m glad i have a little more to try this again because this was fairly flat and tasteless today compared to the 2014 version (which imo was a little less awesome than 2013). i’m going to withhold my rating until i have a chance to try this again….plus it’ll give me time to convince dexter to try it as well :)

Dexter

Dexter tried it and I did not like it at all. IMHO this is not a good harvest. :(

Oh no! I was hoping this one would be awesome! I have this one coming with YS order I placed at the end of April. I gave away all my 2014 in swaps.

Sil

In all fairness – I emailed Scott to ask about it, since YS has never had a “bad” tea in my books…some that are not “MY” cup of tea, but overall their teas are good. His response: The tea is very fresh. It’s typical for black teas to hit their prime about 6 months in. You could leave the bag open for a couple of days and leave in a cool dry place. I think you’d find it will improve.

I’ll have to try that, as I have noticed in the past that some black teas have tasted better later on. Always willing to give it a shot :)

boychik

I agree. Especially with Yancha. It needs some time to mature. This tea is fr the same region. Try it in September . It will be weather appropriate too ;)

Sil

Boychik – yep! I’ll cross my fingers :)

I didn’t buy any of the 2015 teas…not because I didn’t want to, but because I’m trying not to spend money, and because I still have plenty from 2014, & in some cases even 2013!
The benefits of being a tea hoarder :)

Sil

I wish that were the case terri! I’m doing pretty good at keeping my cupboard in a 6 month rotation ish..

boychik

I’m like Terri. Still holding 2014 teas. I don’t think they are losing any flavor.

Noms. Still love this one…so glad that Terri introduced me to it. I have enough to last me for a while yet thanks to her! it’s more delicious in the fall because of the flavour profile, but it’s still a tasty treat in the evenings :)

Terri HarpLady

I’m still enjoying it too, although I’m getting closer to the bottom of my bag…sigh…
Fall is just around the corner!

another tea from the other night. Still enjoying this one, but i’m not sure it’s a restock if this year’s harvest of the base tea is similar to last year.

MissB

This was quite the tea to find! So glad it was worth it for you. :)

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.
