having a cup of this as a break from the black teas from last night/today . still delicious and still a tasty cup of tea, though i think i generally prefer this one cold brewed to hot :)

NOMS! terriharplady let me steal one of these from her when i was in st louis and i figured that this would be the perfect morning tea since we’re still running through test cases and such. This way i can make a cup, boil the water, steep another cup and keep rotating. so i’ve been doing that this morning and it’s been great. this is absolutely tangerine and not orange. the flavouring isn’t overpowering the tea, though i’ve been experimenting by putting some of the rind in here and there to play with the level of flavour coming through. This is also a bold enough puerh for me, without being flat in terms of a base. On the whole, i’d likely pick some of these up in future for fun :) thanks terri!

Last of the teas from Han Xiang Ecological Tea that Cameron B. sent my way. This tea is a sweet, malty sort of tea….but with that very clearly “yunnan” taste, which i guess is sweet potatoe? toe toe toe toe…poooooo taaaaay tooooooooeeee… obviously, i’m tired this morning.. lol

this is another tea from cameron B. this is a sweet yunnan tea with a little bit of fruitiness and some bready notes. It’s a little weak for my preferences, especially this late/early in an overnight but it’s not a bad tea. I prefer the others that cameron sent me from this company though :)

so i took this to work last night/this morning but added a little milk and honey. perfect. that is what this tea needed. it also didn’t have ANY cloves in there that i could see, so it was just the echo of cloveygoodness in the tea. great tea to have last night :)

drank Pearl of Fruits by The Whistling Kettle
5374 tasting notes

cameron B sent this one my way so i could try a few different teas from whistling kettle. I’m always wary of “pearl” teas. I find that the flavouring in those teas tends to be sort of a melange of “stuff” that never comes across as a distinct flavour for me. this tea is no exception. While it’s a fairly smooth base without any bitterness, the flavour is sort of a peach like generic kind of taste. The description indicates a bit of spice, but even my wimpy taste buds aren’t getting any of that. Not a bad cup, and i love trying new things, but not for me :) thanks again cameron!

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.
