6828 Tasting Notes
Another tea from today. Heads up to those out there who look forward to christmas for fancy french teas in Canada…Holt Renfrew has their inital F&M teas in stock and supposedly Nov 4 they’ll be launching the full shebang of their christmas teas + cookies from MF and F&M and any others they bring in. So far it’s looking a little different than the past 2 years so that might be a good thing. This is one they have not yet ever stocked there, but it’s a good one – not my favourite MF vanilla but not the worst by far!
noms. wedding pictures are back from the photographer and OMG …so many faces of Sil. it’s the one thing i noticed…or rather became obvious in looking at them…i make faces a lot…expressive faces…laughing faces….weird faces…HI faces…. also. I think a lot of people saw my boxers that day hahaha. so um not really a tea not but so what. haha
MIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE! omgsrsly is the best. And not just ‘cause she let me take butt pictures of her while she was visiting…but because she shared this tea with me. And it’s been gone for so long and now it’s back…for a wee little bit. and i had this the other day and re-steeped the crap out of it! so there.
noms. spicy kickass tea from missB via omgsrsly heh. Pulled this one out today to try and get a handle on my overflowing cupboard. I’m doing well with sipdowns, but not well enough if i actually want to get to 50 by year end lolz. still a fan of this one, so nice to have it back in my cupboard until it’s gone.
Final Count: 116
noms. I’ve been drinking this down a bunch since variaTEA was awesome enough to share hers with me. I’m finally saying good bye to this for reals though. (on that note, any time you want to raid my cupboard, let me know Variatea!). This blend will always have a spot in my heart since i got to work with stacy to create it.
I figured i should make a point of having at least one of my green/oolong teas on weekends since during the week, i rarely drink them. I pulled this one out as i always try to drink verdant’s green teas as close to getting them as possible. This tea has some seriously neat twisty leaves. Admittedly, i had hoped the “pine” in the tea name was because they somehow added pine needles to the tea but that was silly of course. :)
Brewed this is a beany, sweet, green tea. I should do a comparison next week maybe of the several greens i received in the tea of the month club…this one is refreshing. I am a fan of this one so far. Will have to see if additional steeps change it up any.
farewell delicious tea. This was the last of the stash that VariaTEA shared with me and it was great having a little more to enjoy. Glad i was able to finish it soon though, as it’s slightly less awesome than it usually is because of the age i think. Not pineappley enough for me. Sad that Butiki is no more, but at least there’s the lupicia oolong if i ever want that pineapple taste again.
