drank Acerola Cherry Potion by Tealux

this one doesn’t work for me. It’s cherry and has a tangy zip to it but the smell is too artificial or something and gets in my nose. i suspect there are those who would really enjoy the flavours at play here, but they’re not for me :)

The problem with cherry teas are that they’re horrible by being too artificial or gross. I love cherries, but I haven’t found the right one, yet.

It sounds like a white tea from DAVID’s. I liked that one but not enough to restock.

I opened this one today – my present for getting my cupboard weight down more than anticipated in March. Let me tell you the dry leaf on this one is amaaazeballs. I made my other half smell this one and he immediately said chocolate., instead of saying “dirt” like he always does. I wish the brewed version of the tea was as chocolatey as the dry leaf – instead it turns into a VERY pleasant more typical yunnan golden bud. That’s not to say it was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable, just lacking the intensity of the chocolate aroma of the dry leaf. :)

First of my teas from this morning and it was still a winner. I am thoroughly enjoying these bellocq teas especially since my unflavoured tea stash is so low.

drank Organic Assam Tea by Thé Santé

a friend gave this one to me so i figured i should try it out, even though looking at the ctc, i was pretty sure it wouldn’t be my cup of tea either. this is a REALLY strong tea and just not one to stay in my cupboard. This would be a milk/sugar sort of cup for me. Instead, i’ll add it to my swap box to share with others. :)

farewell tea. This helps me reach last months sipdown goal lol now i can focus on this months. What’s nice is that in order to get to 55 for the end of the year, from here on out i just need to get 5 sipdowns each month. That should be totally doable even with the teas i have larger quanties of since i have lots more time to work on them :)

Trying to drink some of my older teas. Going through weighing my cupboard today to see where i landed for the end of march and grabbed this one earlier today. Still enjoying it and glad the flavouring hasn’t lessened.

The more older teas that I drink, the more teas that are added….Heh. I’m sure you experience the same problem?

Sil

heh this year i’m being good….so far.

I started out great, then my wife gave me money for Christmas, with a note that read, “For Your Tea Only.” Then I allowed myself to havea small monthly spending spree…This whole “joining the tea community” is ruining me, but in a great way! :)

Sil

It’s a great thing. i went a little crazy my first couple years here but now i’ve got a much better idea of the types of things i like/don’t like and what time of year i prefer certain things

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.
