last cup of this..farewell creamy eggnog. Maybe we’ll meet again in the fall when it calls for creamier delicious times. But for now, it’s summer.. MOVE OVER! the fruit is coming! :)

i thought that i’d like this one more. it has a number of ingredients that i like and seemed like it would be a fun tasting blend. sadly, it’s pretty much coming across as a minty green. I’m not getting any of the other flavours :( Shmiracles sent this my way and i’m glad for it…even if i know nothing about this fandom, they’re fun to try! :)

i had another cup of this one a few hours ago, and sadly don’t remember much from it. I’ve been distracted trying to get organised with “real life” with a bunch of last minute things that need to be organised. It’s thankfully almost time to just draw a bath and relax before trying to get an early night…i hope.

Silly real life, getting in the way of tea. Hope you managed to chill out and rest early!

mmmmmm so i’ve had this sample in my cupboard from gracebtlb for a while now. Not because i haven’t wanted to drink it, but because i try to take the time to sit and really focus on the puerh, at least the first time i have it haha. I have to say that this one shocked me with just how much i loved it. I’ve been pretty much drinking it since this morning – in between cups of other teas. This will be an order for sure in future!

I didn’t really take notes while drinking this as i was really enjoying it. but i did give it two rinses to start, as suggested to me by grace. After that i just kept adding 15 sec or so each steep.
-earthy; bold; smooth; a little sweet; leathery; sweet; sort of roasty…kinda

Just a really happy tea for me today in rainy ville. I need to start setting aside time every weekend for puerh!

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA
4044 tasting notes

hmmmm…. Cavocorax sent this my way so that i could try out another of david’s spring teas. I’m not sure about this one. It sort of tastes like cucumber water that they serve at spas but a little sweeter. Overall, not my thing since i’d rather just drink cucumber water lol still glad to have tried it though :)

Cavocorax

Ooh you’re so fancy you drink cucumber water at spas! I just drink this tea and think it’s the pinnacle of cucumber flavouring in drinks.

Sil

lol goofy. sounds like you need a girls day with tea at the spa….heh

bah this one wasn’t in my cupboard, so it’s not a sipdown but it sure was a tasty tea. I grabbed this one because i wanted something that i knew i’d love. Plus that smokey maple tasty on a rainy day is wonderful.

drank Mind Palace by Beastly Beverages
4044 tasting notes

Thanks missB This tea, while quite lovely reminds me more of a puerh than an assam/ceylon blend. There’s an earthy quality to this that is in line with the puerh i had this morning haha. It looks like missB saw this as closer to a lapsang…so maybe it’s just one of those teas that changes for everyone heh. Either way, this was a really nice cup of tea for this late morning. Though on that note, it seems insane that the day is barely half over and i’ve still got so many teas that i can drink!

drank Loki by Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee
4044 tasting notes

this is a tricky tea…which i’m ok with since it’s loki. shmiracles sent this my way and when i opened the bag i was like “well crap…that’s uh…some jasmine” However, once brewed, the jasmine IN the tea is almost non existant. read that as “sil didn’t have to dump it down the drain” my main problem with this though was that i kept smelling the jasmine, which was turning me off the cup even though every time i took a sip, i was like oh! no jasmine lol

keychange

I’m kind of having a similar experience over here. every time I twist the lid off my travel mug, I get a whiff of what I swear is cat pee, but then I sip and it’s just my delicious pumpkin tea…wtf? haha

Sil

LMAO mmm cat pee…

keychange

hahahahahahahahah!!!

CHAroma

LOL! OMG NO!

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.
