drank Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea by What-Cha
5583 tasting notes

Another sample from my what-cha order. This keemun says “caramel aroma and taste” I’m not sure i’m getting that unless i think really hard about it. Most people would probably find this one to be on the smokey side, though not extremely so. This is the sort of keemun that i add maple syrup to! However, this has a nice smooth body to it, and i’m enjoying it today. I’d be curious to compare this one to teavivre’s offering but sadly my cupboard is all out of that currently heh

OMGsrsly

Which Teavivre one? Because I have a bunch of them still, I think.

Sil

mmmm i like uh.. the organic one and #2 i think? i’d have to go look lol

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
5583 tasting notes

I’m starting my overnight with this baby. Mostly because i am trying my very best to take the time to use my pot, enjoy my tea time and relax whenever possible but also because it’s a sipdown. A sad and delicious sipdown. The other plus is that since i’ll be up all night, i can basically drink this straight through until Sunday :) Not much to say about this one that hasn’t already been said before. Will i order this one again? 100% yes.

drank Caramel Oolong by Cornelia Bean

Also another from dexter jury is still out on this one. it was interesting to say the least, and for a girl who doesn’t much like oolongs, i wasn’t finding this one as offensive as most oolongs lol. I just need more time with it to really focus on it…i’m just way too exausted tonight. Prbably was a stupid idea to drink it…but at least i have more :) and it was a good cup with dinner!

FInal Count: 126 – i’d like to get to at least 120 this weekend…preferably 115.

drank Root Beer Float by Della Terra Teas
5583 tasting notes

dexter sent this one my way for me to try so i pulled it out tonight. It’s got that rootbeer flavour for sure, but the honeybush in this one is a little woody… so i prefer the david’s tea black version. that being said, i need to try this as a lattee tomorrow so that i can see how it holds up with the milk, since i also generally only love the david’s one in latte form :) thanks dex!

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
5583 tasting notes

for those that haven’t been around in recent history….today/tonight/tomorrow is an all nighter for me..or almost one anyway. Heading to napville at the moment so that i can get a couple hrs in before i’m up until saturday evening. it’s the last of our upgrades for the next few months…but man..this is going to be a long one…hence the perfect excuse for sipdown saturday/sunday. this was the tea to kick off my day and i’ll be glad for it by the time i get through this weekend!

Red Fennekin

Great choice to kick off the day – such a lovely, chocolatey tea :D

drank Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong by Yezi Tea
5583 tasting notes

the last of my teas from today…figured that i’d change things up a little and have this version instead of my other versions…….. i’m still pretty sure that the 2013 version from YS is my all time favourite of this type of tea. but this one? still pretty darn good. :)

Final Count: 126

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.
