5605 Tasting Notes

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!

still enjoying this, but still wishing for more apple. I’m trying to take it easy today even though we did a good cleaning and purging of things because i can tell i’m fighting sick. MUST. RESIST!

tea of the morning hat i had hours ago with breakfast. My other half and i are trying to get the house cleaned up – in sort of a mini winter cleaning or whatever. It’s making for a long productve day with not a lot of computer time haha. Still enjoying this tea quite a bit, though i vastly prefer it at home than in a travel mug.

It’s a good tidying day. I got my living room back this morning :)

i’ve decided that i don’t like goji berries. they interfere with things that are good. bah. This roooibos was another from yesterday from bear with me. This one was one that i had high hopes for because of the smell, but brewed it was a weird sort of fruity, creamy rooibos with that distinctly goji berry taste, CURSE YOU GOJI! lol thanks for the decidely different tea BWM! still fun to have.

Final Count of 2014: 85 (goal was 75 so i’m giving myself until the end of the weekend to get there…) 2014 was the year where i tried 818 new teas, bringing my total up to 2216 teas tried (roughly) since i joined steepster.

Veronica

Wow… you’re my tea sipping hero! :)

Sil

cupboard is going to go up a bunch in the new year….but i’ll keep trudging along lol

Anlina

Wow, that’s a tonne of teas! I am both impressed by how many you’ve tried and how small your cupboard is.

Sil

Anlina – it’s been a loooong journey from 350+ to this small lol made easier now by knowing what sorts of teas i really like. heh

Bear With Me

I have to say, I had a LOT of fun dishing stuff out for you!

Sil

Another tea from bear with me and yesterday….this tea has a really nice black base. This tea is NOT maple syrup…it’s more like maple cream..HA. sorry. uh..little foggy on the rest of the details but it was quite an enjoyable cup yesterday :) thanks BWM!

another tea from bear with me thanks again for the rooibos samples! this is the sort of rooibos that does NOT have that woodsy sort of taste, so yay for that! this doesn’t really taste like your usual pumpkin spice tea. instead its more like a creamy tea. I’m not really getting pumpkin pie from this, but it is a tasty tea heh.

tea from yesterday. Still really glad i was able to get 2oz of this. I’m not sure how i’m going to find another company that does flavoured teas as well as stacy. it’s sad. this tea though is great, and i love that this is still on the other base

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.
