Another tea from yesterday – i ended up spending some gaming time with the other half yesterday so i am behind! :) I really like whatever harvest this is that i picked up. i DO need to remember that i can generally pass on spring harvests as i just don’t love them as much as well. Great cup of delicious tea yesterday!

agreed about spring harvests…the exception for me is a few select fresh spring green teas.

mmmm i’ve had this one twice now – once regularly brewed and once as a latte and both times were delicious! I’m not sure if i like this one better or the other berry tea that omgsrsly also sent me from silk road i think it was? Overall this is just a great berry tea, that feels juicy, slightly sweet and really tasty! thanks for the share omg!

Another one that I’ve had a couple times now over e course of my time here in ottawa. I actually liked this one better than I thought I would, given my usual dislike of a lot of the herbal infusions blends. I think part of the reason this one went over better for me, was that it’s a herbal and doesn’t have that black base in it. The mint isn’t overpowering in this, and the fruit adds a nice sweetness to it. Not too shabby! Glad raritea, Kittenna and I got to share and try this one!

I feel like I should be. Keeping track of how fast I drink through my 100g of this one. I’m not even sure why I love it so much but I do, as a regular tea and in latte form so ha! There’s a reason I brought this to ottawa :)

I actually had this one before I left for ottawa to try and compare it to the rooibos version of this tea. Sadly now that I’ve been away from it for a while, I can’t recall much Beyond the fact that I did enjoy it! Lol this was another from bear with me :)

drank Dolce Orange by Janet's Special Teas

Since im in ottawa for a few days my notes have been abysmal. Rest assured I AM drinking lots of tea though. This was one of teh teas that I brought with me so that I could try a few things while I was away from my cupboard in the hopes of beings able to still reach my sipdown goal. bearwithme sent this one me way and it’s one that I’ve been looking forward to trying out since I love a good orange tea. While this isn’t my favourite orange tea, I can certainly see the appeal. This is orange and vanilla and is super tasty as a black tea. What I did find though, was its a little finicky, and if you’re not a bit careful, there’s a bitterness in the orange that can come out. I also wished I had my vanilla sugar here so that I could add a bit extra to the cup. over all though, a really tasty tea. I’ll have to let a few others try the remainder of this one :) thanks bear with me!

I’ve been mostly Mia for a couple days, as I’m in ottawa trying to find my wedding dress in 3 days of glorious backs to back dress craziness. Toda….we found it. The search is over! The only dress that I actually put on and smiled at, rather than my usual…well this is nice… I could wear this. So we did it. Best part of all of it? Super inexpensive dress because we found a sample size on sale, and even with alterations, it’ll be cheaper than every other dress that I looked at! One more thing off the wedding list…oh happy day. Celebrated tonight with a few cups of this delicious tea that is back in my cupboard thanks to the awesome generosity of omgsrsly me and this tea? We’re besties!

Congrats on finally finding The One! Hope you’ll be able to breathe a little more easily now.

Nicole

Yay for dress!

OMGsrsly

Yay dress! And yay tea. :D I’ll totally keep sending you this when you complain you’ve run out. :)

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.
