oh this is nice. I am a fan of the blending here in this cup. Just the right balance of malty and deep, dark delicious. Yep…going to have to see about picking up more of this sometime!

OMGsrsly

Sil

Cavocorax

Sil

I’m too lazy to enter this in to the cupboard but i tried out Gloria Jean’s Cherry Vanilla. Sadly, while there was a cherry note there, there wasn’t enough vanilla for me haha. Still a decent cup but nothing i need to go out of my way to find again :)

drank Butter Tart by LuxBerry Tea
6037 tasting notes

HGTTB like others have mentioned…this one is weird. This is for sure nothing like a butter tart. So all best are off in terms of rating. It’s not a bad tea…but it’s not butter tart. instead it’s a sweet, sort of weird tea. there’s a bit of spice from the peppercorns but overall it’s just not what it claims to be heh

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
6037 tasting notes

i spent some serious time with this tea and my tea pot this afternooon. I needed a break from life and sampling teas. My other half and a friend of ours came over to putter with teh bikes so i just wanted some quiet time. Plus i’ve neglected my pot a bit lately so it needed to come out :) Not much more to say on this one besides the fact that i still love it.

drank Banana Black Tea by EnjoyingTea.com

So the banana flavouring in this one is nice. When you can get through the base tea enough to taste it. IE. The base is a bitter, icky black sort of tea. The banana though? it’s tasty lol. It’s what i’d want in a banana tea if i could add it to a different base. heh

drank Caramel Apple by Market Spice
6037 tasting notes

HGTTB caramel? Yes. Apple? not really. I did brew this at the lower temp suggested on the bag and i’m glad I did as i’m fearful that at boiling this would be overly bitter and undrinkable. At 180 it’s pleasant enough but just not really very caramelly or appley. It’s a decent cup though and as always i love trying new teas :)

drank Nilgiri "Woodlands" by Cornelia Bean
6037 tasting notes

HGTTB not too shabby. I have had other instances of this tea from other companies before, so going in to it i knew it wasn’t going to be my favourite sort of black tea. However, this one isn’t bad…it’s just not what i prefer. It’s bold, and strong but there’s also an astringency here that i’m not a fan of.

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.
