drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea

i’ve been slacktacular with my tea logging the past week. Not sure what it is but i am seriously de-motivated by almost everything – work, tea, house stuff… just want to go away or change things up, but the more i look at things to do and places to go, the more it sucks ‘cause i really can’t afford to do much this year until the we get through all of the wedding related things. I swear to god if we have kids and they get married, if they want to elope or have a destination wedding or something teeeeny, tiny, i will let them! haha

This has been one that i’ve been trying to pick up more frequently, if only so that i run out of my verdant teas at the same time for a re-order lol. It’s still tasty and delicious though this harvest wasn’t as amazing as the last. :)

I really like orange teas. I also really like rosemary…in cooking. :) While i would call this tea an accurate one, it doesn’t work for me because it turns the tea into very much a savory tea. And orange for me isn’t a savory sort of thing…it’s sweet…and tangy but not savory. So this is a good tea, but it doesn’t work for me. The orange and the rosemary blend quite nicely, and the rooibos isn’t a very overpowering taste. It’s also not that sort of woody rooibos. So if that sounds like your sort of thing, id recommend this. :)

Another one that i have the pleasure of finishing off. On the upside, i’m nearly through tasting all the teas that i really wanted to have a run with out of the box. It’s been a good one! This is a lovely tea and very much a desserty tea with a creamy, buttery, apple spice sort of taste to it. This is a little rich for me though, so i’m not sure that i need more of it in my life haha It’s really lovely though!

drank Organic Bold Leaf Pu-erh by Wegmans

HGTTB haha i hadn’t read the review of this one before i picked it out of the box to try. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as everyone thinks it is but i also wouldn’t brew this straight up western. It does have a little fishy smell to it but as far as the taste goes, it’s a pretty average cup. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s not toss out worthy either :)

drank Rhubarb + Custard by Bluebird Tea Co.

HGTTB I had the last cup of this one from the box as well. I wanted to revisit this one since it’s been a long while since i’ve had teas from bluebird. Turns out, this is still a tasty cup of tea and still one that i rather enjoy as far as herbals go. Just the right amount of tang and sweet :)

so i don’t mind hibiscus…but in this tea, it for sure contributes to a really sour brew, blueberry but sour blueberries. Initially a really great smelling blueberry tea but in this particular instance, i’d recommend less Hibby, though i generallly don’t mind it the way some folks do. I finished off the last cup of this one as well from the box. yay for single servings. heh

drank Milky Fruit by Tea Story

HGTTB i had the last cup of this one a few days ago. It wasn’t bad but i’m also wondering if it was missing some of the ingredients that make up the tea. Always trickey with heavier teas. It wasn’t bad…but it didn’t make me swoon with delight. just a nice cup for the evening!

i have a hard time with a lot of ceylons. This one falls in to that category. For me this is a bitter, astringent cup of meh. :( it’s not a BAD cup of tea, just not one for me!

OMGsrsly

Haha. The tea tasting we went to on Sunday led with a Ceylon. Then Assam, then Chinese blacks. My tongue was SO UNHAPPY.

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.
