Yeah it was acting up for me earlier. Wouldnt save a note, then made it look like I drank the tea three times. Finally the note went through. It’s working okay for me now.

drank Berry Victoria by Silk Road

ANother from omgsrsly i was trying to get to 75 this weekend to start the year off at my goal for last year but then SOMEONE (variatea) decided i needed a few more teas…soooo i’m still aiming for 75 by end of day tomorrow but i certainly got put far away from it again. trying tog et that done AND go through all my YS teas again.

This tea? strangely not for me. I’m not sure if its all the other berry teas that i’ve had over the past week but this one fell flat for me. the base wasn’t cooperating with me and then the flavours where just sort of there. ah well, can’t win them all! thank you though omgsrsly! always appreciate the share!

This one appears to have replaced the 150th anniversary blend :’(

terri don’t buy this one! i picked this one up to share with you, since i know you like jin jun mei. This will largely be coming your way as i am not crazy about it, and would rather drink other teas lol It’s not a bad tea, it just falls on the side of jin jun mei that i’m less a fan of. :)

I am having a slow day today. Pretty sure that “sick” finally caught up to me as i was a bit feverish last night and today i’m overly emotional lol a sure sign that i am sick or on the verge. had a lovely cup of this today…hours ago haha. still not as amazing as the first harvest of this one i had, but it’ll do.

final count: 76 (adding in other teas tomorrow lol)

drank Rainbow Rooibos by Janet's Special Teas

another from bear with me Sadly this one fell short for me. There’s something about the raspberry/strawberry that just doesn’t work. It had a slightly articificial taste to me as well, that i couldn’t get past. It might be tastier as a latte though since the milk would make it creamier. thanks for the share BWM!

Bear With Me

Definitely better with milk

drank Mango Passion by Bayswater Tea Co.
5583 tasting notes

haha i love that omgsrsly found this one weird..and odd. For me, it’s actually pretty tasty, even if it is an oolong but the mango reminds me more of peach….but then maybe that’s the result of the passion fruit flavour being added to it. Still though, quite a ncie tea, and i’d be interested in trying it hot brewed, iced. with just a dash of sweetner to really bring out the flavours… thanks lady!

OMGsrsly

It’s just a little toasty. I do like the flavour of this one!

drank Mountain Rain by Silk Road

tea from omgsrsly i was a little worried as this one brewed up because it had a really floral scent to it. however, the actual tea is much more mellow and almost, dare i say it, boring? There’s a freshness and a sweetness here that is really nice…and there’s none of that dreaded oolong taste that i don’t like…but it’s just kinda…boring. lol not sure how else to describe it..maybe it’s just a little light in it’s tastes? Still a good cup, and as far as green oolongs go this is really nice…just…subdued. :)

OMGsrsly

Uh oh! I haven’t managed to try this one yet. But that sounds about right for Silk Road. Expensive, and yet somehow really simple.

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.
