I’ve had this a few times now, and while i do enjoy it a bunch. there’s a floral note to is that i can’t get behind. i love the initial sips of this and the tail end of things, but somewhere in the middle there’s a floral note that doesn’t like me. That’s really on me, and not the tea. :)

Butiki Teas

I definitely understand about that floral note. This tea to me tastes like a Darjeeling crossed with an Assam but I can definitely see how if you aren’t into floral at all that the floral note can ruin the chocolaty goodness.

Sil

nice tea..just not for meeeee :)

Final Count yesterday: 100

CHAroma

What game?

Sil

oh god.. we played several rounds of splendour; cosmic encounters; dixit; 7 wonders and tsuro. :)

CHAroma

Hmm, I haven’t heard of any of those. Are they video games or board games?

Sil

board games lol i have about 80+ myself…so that’s not surprising that you haven’t heard of them :)

CHAroma

Oh wow, LOL! Whenever I hear “gaming” I think video games so I was curious. Too bad we don’t live near each other. My husband is obsessed with board games but I don’t like to play with him ’cause he always wins, LOL!

Sil

i ADORE board games. I win, i lose..it’s fun! sounds like you just need to find one that you rule the world with :)

CHAroma

There is ONE. It’s called Quarto. You have to make a row of blocks with the same characteristic, and each block has four characteristics to keep track of. It’s a spatial strategy game, and I’m very good at spatial things. Beat him every time, LOL!

Sil

nice! i’m terrible at those things haha

backlog from yesterday. I was having issues with tasting some of the teas i tried in the morning, so i just reverted back to my old standby. As always, it didn’t let me down. Added a little cacao to this for an extra chocolatey experience and it was fantastic.

However things you probably shouldn’t do when you’re sicka dn on that line between getting more sick and getting better? spend the day at a friends gaming lol I’m more sick today but hopefully i can relax for the day since it’s a holiday here in canada and be ready to roll tomorrow. especially since i’m travelling next week for work and need to be functional!

I hope you have a good holiday and get some rest. Feel better! :)

yyz

Happy Simcoe day ( though I’ve been told that’s more a Toronto centric appellation). Best lots of rest and I hope you feel better soon.

Sil

i call it “i get the day off and my other half has to work day” hahaha

yyz

Poor soul:). I used to have to work most holidays at my old job too. However in compensation I usually only had to work 12 days Max sometimes only seven, if I bid properly:).

Cavocorax

Hah. I just looked it upp – wasn’t sure what “Civic Holiday” was supposed to mean except, hey it’s August and we need a long weekend somewhere!

I’m off but without pay. :P I’d rather be working!!

Sil

Cavo – E calls this “banks suck day” since we get it as an official holiday and if i had to work it, it’d be double time and a half lol

Cavocorax

LOL – yeah bankers and gov’t employees are so lazy! :p

Sil

yep..thats me alright… slacktacular :)

yyz

My cousin has summer hours at her company where they get at least a half day up to a full day off on Friday. I thought that was nice until I heard of a company that puts her staff on summer sabbatical for close to two months.

Cavocorax

:P Yeah, you’re the exception?

having a bad tea morning. this one is bitter today but i know it’s just my stupid taste buds having a crap day. On the upside, it’s still an ok cup to get me gonig this morning, so no hard, no foul..but i’ll stick to tea i know doesn’t ever taste weird for the rest of today or until my taste buds seem to reset lol

MzPriss

I hate it when I get the bad taster days. I’m attempting a reset with Soba

i think my taste buds are off this morning as both cups of tea that i’ve had so far, seem rather bitter. I’m going to hold off rating this one for now until i can have it again.

drank Midsummer Night by RiverTea
4923 tasting notes

mystery tea! somehow this ended up in the shopping cart that cavo and i made and neither one of us can remember wanting to order it. So we split it and now we have a mystery tea lol This one is actually pretty decent. It’s a very lemon tea, which i’m ok with. I think it would be particularly tasty with a splash of honey added, so i’ll try that next time :)

Final Count: 101 (gotta watch that lol)

Cavocorax

I have to try it cold too!

another cold brew of this one. I really need to try this hot brewed before i get through it all. I’m glad cavo wanted to try this one, as i’m not sure i ever would have picked it up myself and i’ve enjoyed having it! :)

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.
