i’ve had this one before but didn’t rate it. Feels like maybe the last harvest was better for me, or i just did something silly today when brewing it. I didn’t dislike it, but it was a lesser cup of tea for me today with a slightly bitter edge to it. I’ll chalk it up to being tired and brewing it silly this morning for now and re try this again soon.

Finally getting around to having space in my cupboard to open a few more teas that i haven’t tried. This is one of those sorts of teas. I need to have this one again, to really reflect on it. I remember enjoying it, but i can’t recall why or to what extent. overall a positive tea drinking experience but i’ll have to write a more proper note when i get to having it again.

I pulled this one out of the cupboard a few days ago to try, in case i needed to break my no ordering rule to make sure that i get a bit more of these harvest from ttc before they’re gone. This was amazing. As a general rule, i’ve always really enjoyed this tea from TTC, regardless of the lot. I have to say though, that this lot is incredible. it’s cherry, malty sweetness in a cup. It was a couple days ago, so i can’t recall much more than that, but i do remember being really sad when i finished my travel mug lol

backlog from a couple days ago – i’ve been busy lately with wedding stuff. I’m going to be super sad when this one is gone, but i’ll be comforted with the fact that i do have a bunch of fancy french flavored teas to amuse myself with after :) I don’t get a lot of the espresso from this these days but i’m ok with that since it’s the chocolate strawberry i’m more of a fan of lol

I’m almost out of this – maybe a couple more cups and while i’ll be sad to see it go, it doesn’t have nearly the intense flavour that i hoped that it would. It’s delicious, but i want more butterscotch AND more mocha. But white rhino…i miss you. lots. :(

Final Count: 171 (swaps and tea bags finally added to the cupboard)

You need more tea than that..

Sil

mrmopar

Terri HarpLady

I’m gonna send you a new box, which will include samples of every version on LB (from multiple seasons & years), so that you can test them side by side! I’ll also include multiple zhu rong samples, & samples of every pu in my collection ;)

Wow, making great progress, Sil! I’m struggling just to get under (and stay under) 200. It never seems to happen for very long.

Sil

Terri…half of me is like YAAAAY! the other half is like…but, but..but….

Charoma – yeah i’m doing better cutting back on purchases, or keeping them small. Only reason it exploded on me was that we went to paris and i’m sure as hell not missing opportunity to buy tea there haha

this was a great morning tea with an everything bagel with herb and garlic creamcheese. :) slightly smokey taste, little bit of astringency but overall the perfect compliment to breakfast this morning.

Fjellrev

Mmm, that bagel sounds delicious.

Still enjoying this one from Yezi. They really do have some great offerings in terms of both puerh and black (red) tea. There’s a slight sweetness to this while also being malty with a medium strength to 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.
