wow. another from MissB and i have to say this was like a trip down memory lane to when i first started drinking loose leaf tea and my favourite tea ever was madam butterfly from the tea emporium here in toronto. this tea…smells exactly like it, only with a bit of pineapple that comes through. While i’m a little tired of that flavour, it was nice to revisit a memory and try and new take on it. thanks for sharing missb!

this is another from terri and while i’m not an oolong fan, i do love me some ginger! haha while this is a really pleasant roasty oolong, all i’m really getting here is peach. And i’m a little peached out. I really can’t taste any ginger. I have a feeling if this was a ginger oolong i’d be all over getting more of this…but the way it stands? i’m good with just this taste! thanks terri!

You and I seem to have some tastes in common, Sil. I love ginger too. I’m going to start going through your tasting notes to find things I might like.

Sil

sichuan caravan from verdant. my tasting notes are sometimes not so tea related…especially after a few years of drinking the same things. If you’re after a specific thing let me know…happy to suggest. :)

Terri HarpLady

I think sichuan caravan & our pumpkin ginger spice are the winners for gingery flavor :)

terri sent these my way and i couldn’t find an entry in the database for them. So here’s hoping i didn’t create a duplicate. these are very sweet…and fruity and don’t have the least bit of that dark black tea taste that i love about other flowering cones that i’ve had. that being said, these are quite delicious and even cold (i forgot about my tea) the brew is delicious to drink! thanks for letting me try another flowering cone terri!

Haveteawilltravel

Always wanted to try tea cones, look some interesting :)

Sil

i recommend the ones from mandala! :)

Haveteawilltravel

duly noted :)

Terri HarpLady

These were tasty, although I don’t think I ever did get around to reviewing them, & I’ll have to agree, the ones from Mandala were better :)
I think I originally ordered them because Garret ran out of the others, & I wanted to see if they were the same.

yyz

Interesting these were milder than the Mandala ones? I found the Mandala ones milder than my Ali ones that can get super malty.

Sil

these were…fruitier? not really a malty tea… almost sweet/fruity?

yum! terri sent me more of this and i have to say 2013 was just a good year for tea harvest…at least in my little corner of “black” tea world lol. I don’t love the 2014 harvests as much so here’s hoping that 2013 will be a good year. still enjoying this one a lot! thanks terri!

drank Big Tree Red by White 2 Tea
5930 tasting notes

terri sent this one my way – i haven’t had any opportunity to try white2tea so i was happy to see this. I treated this like i do most puerh and brewed it gonfu style this morning since that’s what’s recommended on the website. I’m still working on it, though i can say that this is a lighter tea but not without flavour. i’m still waking up so i’ll try to write more later. but this is a win.

Another from the magic box. I had some less than stellar experiences with some of the tea emporium’s teas so i haven’t been back in a while, but this tea called out to me to try even if only because i miss my walter bishop tea :( this tea smells divine! in fact a lot like WB… brewed the rooibos is decent, not that woodsy srt of rooibos that ruins delicious teas. It’s got a very nice strawberry flavour to it, though i’m not sure i’d call this one “shortCAKE.” it’s good though…very tasty and would probably be delicious as a latte!

Final Count: 161 (plus the travelling tea box)

tea from terri! this one smells a LOT of the hojicha. However, once brewed, i can see why someone might call this coffee….it’s not really like coffee but it’s like the memory of coffee as it blends with the cacao..if that makes sense. Interesting to try, that’s for sure! thanks terri!

Sil

it is… i would never have put those two things together but it works heh

Terri HarpLady

I’ve enjoyed a couple of the blends from Traveling Tea (especially our beloved pumpkin ginger!).

drank On Va Se Revoir by THE O DOR
5930 tasting notes

I’m with MissB on this one…looks like an oolong. I figured today was the day to try this one since i’ve had all sorts of things i wouldn’t normally drink today. This one is a green/mint/blergamot blend….

brewed, this is much more mint than anything…but you can tell the blergfactor is there. mostly though…not something i would drink again. I appreciate the share though MissB!! it’s a lot of fun getting to try these teas out.

OMGsrsly

Do not want. (Mint and bergamot? What?!)

Sil

i’ll try most things…. hahaha but SB might like it

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I’m not into trying that one.

Roswell Strange

What a weird flavour combo…

CrowKettle

Green, minty-citrus perfume? Interesting..

OMGsrsly

SB and CrowKettle might like it, apparently… :D

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.
