i had this today…and added a little sugar. hells yes. even better than without and i didn’t add a lot because i don’t like adding things to my tea. this? soo good. I may need more sooner rather than later.

Cavocorax

Oooooh! Mine just shipped today. I can’t wait! (Also I grabbed 2 Friends JUST because of you)

Sil

haha i hope you like it. (two friends i mean..not worried about red queen)

Cavocorax

i think i like this one a little more than the verdant version, but i need to do a taste test since my ratings certainly don’t reflect that. but i had this one again today and it was just a bit more smokey and seemed a bit more tasty than the verdant version from the other day. maybe i can squeeze in a comparison this weekend….

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

this is out of stock again. I facebooked verdant to see if they know when it’s coming back…because even though i have 4oz of it…i’m in panic mode again that i’ll run out…because that was the worst. THE WORST :)

Cameron B.

WTF, the Genmaicha is out of stock too. I’ve been checking it religiously and it’s never even been low stock. Now it’s just gone…

Sil

yup. my FB asks about that one too… and the vanilla citrus spice. but i have noticed that verdant is terribad at answering wall posts – i’ve had them post their own stuff the same day i post stuff, and not get an answer lol. i’m just too swamped to send an email heh

Cameron B.

I wasn’t rushing my order because I thought there was plenty left… :’(

Sil

boooooooooooooo :(

Cameron B.

Oh well, I have way too much tea right now anyway. I guess I’ll get some next year? Or whenever they have more? I’m sorry about your Laoshan Black. :(

caile

I agree that’s the worst! ;) I am really liking the most recent batch too.

Sil

cameron – it should be back way sooner than next year :)
caile – yeah…i mean, i’m not going to run out right away…but now i feel like hoarding it haha

caile

haha, i know! I feel like I should start hoarding mine…I just bought 3 ounces in my last order but wish I had got more.

Sil

i try to order 3-4 oz at a time…because if i ever need to bump up another order to get free shipping, then i can always add more LB lol

yyz

They had 6 lb is LB yesterday, perhaps someone panic buyed or it was sold to one of their wholesale clients.

I’m hoping that Eight Treasures Yabao will come back. I would like the Genmaicha though if I had to choose, lol it would be Eight Treasures hands down.

drank Golden Yunnan by RiverTea

mmmmmm…i had this one a couple days back as well. It’s a distant memory, but a pleasurable one at that. Glad i can try this one again and write a proper review, especially since this is one of the teas i added to the BBB Box last? round!

backlog..though i think in future i’m just going to have to not write notes since work is about to kill me for the next 2 months. anyway…sometimes i think this is a never ending tea, since no matter how much of it i drink, i can’t seem to get to the end of the package lol which is ok with me because i still love it! :)

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA
4927 tasting notes

sipdown! yay for getting in one a day still…i’m hoping to keep up that trend for the entire month of august, though i’m sure i’ll run out of sample sizes eventually. a goal of one means the other 2 teas i drink at a minimum help me work on decreasing other teas down to that “sipdown” range :) this one wasn’t half bad for a david’s tea, though i don’t need to have it again :)

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
4927 tasting notes

yes…i’m having this again. What can i say? it’s a good substitute for drinking water with dinner when i’m trying to make sure i hydrate but don’t want anything warm :)

Hillel

Yup, I hear you. If I’m not drinking tea, I’ve got a big glass of water close to hand. Being a biker, I’m constantly going on (and on and on) about hydration.

Sil

biker as in cyclist? :) (mountain bikes?) a few people have said that to me and meant motor bikes heh

Bio

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.
