drank Divine Temptation by Bayswater Tea Co.

this + creme brulee = happy times. I’ve been holding off really digging in to these two that omgsrsly brought for me because bayswater is likely never going to get their crap together for online orders. Disappointing really since i’d likely order frequently from them.

MissB

I’ll ask them what’s up on Sunday.

Sil

Please do. I’ve asked via email before and when I was out there…they keep saying “it’s coming” but it’s been 3 yrs? lol

drank Caramel Salted Butter Oolong by Fauchon
7440 tasting notes

Christina’s review on the other version of this from DF made me want to to revisit this one. Thankfully it’s still as wonderful as i remember. I for sure prefer this one to the DF version because it’s creamier and much more caramel…and the base is a little more hidden, which for me is good :)

VariaTEA

I’m always surprised when I read of your love for this tea given its oolong but you make it sound so lovely :)

Sil

DF version, you can taste the oolong. this version, it really doesn’t taste like an oolong except to add buttery notes to it.

VariaTEA

I’ll keep that in mind

Another oldie but a goodie. Gotta love damn fine teas. One of these days i should figure out which one is my favourite, see if my tastes have changed. :)

Time to pull out my older teas more often since i’ve sort of been hoarding them. Not to mention i have the free shipping coupon from damn fine tea that i can use before June? i think it was, so i might as well drink up! I forgot how much i rather enjoy this one. It’s got a softer, almost sweet profile when brewed at lower temps. really nice to revisit this one.

drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea

Having a relaxing cup of tea while I get in some reading tonight. Hoping for an early night to catch up on some much needed sleep. Still enjoying this one, but i’d like to finish it off soon so i can take a break from it before the fall rolls around again haha

Final Count: 111

Helena

Final cup of this today. Figured it was a good one to get one more sipdown in before the weekend hits. I need one more after this one and then i need to weigh my cupboard and hope i’ve reached my february goal haha.

VariaTEA

Are you at like 100 teas now? You have an amazing sipdown ability. I have been trying but just can’t keep up (which is why I have to cheat and load you up with more tea :P – though, I guess I’ll be nice and wait until after February so I don’t throw off your goals.)

Sil

111…goal for feb is 110. weight goal is 6750 though…not sure if i’ve managed that. thankfully i’m finally in a place where nearly all my teas are under 100g. lol

this one came from omgsrsly Figured that i’d give it a shot today since i need to work on my puerhs and this one will need a couple rounds before i can consider it a sipdown heh.
On the whole this is a relatively decent puerh and one that was quite nice to visit over the course of the day. Earthy, smooth, no fermentation, light on the tail end of the sip. Not sweet, but more on that side than on a bitter side.

drank Keemun hong cha by Genuine Tea

I will write a better note on this one another day but initial impressions of this one are favourable. I’ll have to look in to the price comparison with some other keemuns i like but this might win out, even if it’s not my all time favourite keemun

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.
