this is a great berry tea! bear with me sent this my way and pulled it out today to see how it would fare on a day when i was sure to drink part of it hot and then get distracted with work and drink it cold lol This relaly is a boysenberry tea. The base is delicious…i wish other companies could use ceylon bases like this. It blends really well with the flavours and doesn’t have that weird bitter taste. Thanks for sharing this one BWM! this is really tasty!

This might be my favourite berry black, actually. And tasty any way you make it. Try it as a latte if you are so inclined. Tastes a bit like pie ;)

I have been neglecting my pot for a couple weeks so i pulled it out today to be the unflavoured tea i drinking while i try to get through a few samples from friends today. it’s a deliciously wonderful contrast to the flavoured teas and has been great for giving my little pot a work out today :)

Another tea from this morning! I am certainly slacking a little today. I quite enjoy this particular jin jun mei, though i’m not typically a fan of this type of tea :)

delicious cup of tea this morning as I’m trying to work on samples AND get around to trying/re-trying some of my YS teas. This was a really nice cup of sweet, malty deliciousness! a really nice pick from YS.

last tea of the evening! this is my oldest tea in my cupboard (from june) so i’m gradually working on sipping it down, though i’m not in too much of a hurry because it’s a rooibos tea. :)

one of my last teas of the evening, and gievn that i feel like i’ve been fighting getting sick, i wanted this spicy little tasty number. I am still a huge fan of this one + a little honey brewed for about 2 mins.

pretty sure this one was from bear with me Funnily enough, given the ingredients i actually expected that i’d really like this one. But something about the way the flavours merged together was off putting for me tonight. I was still able to drink it (ie. it wasn’t undrinkable) but i was suprised that i didn’t love it more. and that ladies and germs, is why i’ll try everything….even things i really don’t usually like haha

OMGsrsly

Ladies and germs?

Another tea from omgsrsly (still a few to get through!) this one isn’t bad, but as i’ve come to expect, not pear enough for me. I like the tulsi and the apple is slightly present, but the pear leaves something to be desired. It was an enjoyable enough cup tonight though :) thanks madam!

drank Bilberry Black Tea by Compass Teas

this one came my way from kittenna I’m a fan! this is a really nice berry tea….somewhere between blueberry and “other berry” as it cooled, because i stopped paying attention to it, it still tasted delicious. I think that just a teeeny bit of sweetner would go a long way with this one, to make the flavours really pop.

another from bear with me this one, if it does in fact have mint in it – doesn’t really taste minty at all. Instead it’s like a nutty coconut blend. There’s a hint of something else there, that i can’t place my finger on. Over all, another nice blend from janet. Thanks again for letting me try so many of these BWM!

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.
