drank Lime Sage Rooibos by Cornelia Bean
4713 tasting notes

omgsrsly sent this one my way and i was super excited because i do love me some lime flavoured type teas and having the sage there sounded interesting. Sadly even after letting this brew FOREVER, it’s still just kind of a limey creamy sort of tea. It’s nice, but not what i was expecting of hoping for, if that makes sense. Still though, a nice cup to end the day on given my meat coma at the moment from dinner at Copa Cabana (brazillian restaurant where the meat keeps coming….).

Final Count: 182 (3 days left until steepsterversary!)

OMGsrsly

Mmm, meat coma. :) Yeah, I was hoping for more sage too. Generally teas with food type herbs in the name need more of those herbs.

Is that one of those “meat on a sword” places Sil?

Cameron B.

I love those Brazilian steakhouses… Mmmmm… Meat on swords…

Terri HarpLady

There are a couple of those places in St. Louis, but I haven’t been to one yet.

yyz

That makes me think of the grill house we went to occasionally in Giayaquil , Ecuador. It was called Parilla del Nato, I think, it was named after a football star otherwise known as the nose if anyone is wondering. It is a mid range chain in Guayaquil and its suburbs and the portions are huge. I used to bring home the leftovers and they would feed 4-5 people from one order.

Sil

Yes MZPriss :)

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA
4713 tasting notes

variaTEA dropped this off and i knew i had to try this one and the others sooner, rather than later, in case i fall in love with any of them and decide that i NEED ONE over the summer. THis? This is liquid sugar and absolutely NOTHING that i need in my cupboard, but i will give it to david’s that if you like a cup full of sugar, this will fit the bill lol. I give it total props for being just like cotton candy, but some things…weren’t meant to be a tea flavour. :)

Dexter

LOL Agreed…..

it’s back! in my cupboard! and so i drank it..because i have no self control lol. Oh well, i’ll spend the rest of the week trying to catch up on sipdowns i think but today, today i just wanted good, delicious teas at work.

MzPriss

It’s in mine too and I am so glad you and Terri raved about it so much that I got some without doing a sample first. It’s delicious.

Terri HarpLady

I still have some from my last MEGA order. In fact I drank some yesterday, I just didn’t review it, cuz…well…I’ve already reviewed it a bunch of times. :)

soooo close to being done with this one. This + maple syrup today was a happy time. :)

Dexter

Glad you enjoyed it – this didn’t work for me today. I need to get my attitude adjusted back to appreciating my black teas (considering how many/much I just ordered).

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA
4713 tasting notes

variaTEA gave me some of this so i opted to try cold brewing first..came home and guzzled it down. It’s pretty good but there is a weird taste to it that i wasn’t a fan of and it smells funky lol which should be a recipe for dislike, but instead i enjoyed it. Going to try it hot next i think just to see if that works or hot brewed then cooled :) thanks variatea! fun to try new teas…even if it does make me wanna sing puff the magic dragon all day…

Final Count: 184 (need to catch up and try for an extra sipdown every day this week to stay on track!)

Cavocorax

I’m at 212 if that makes you feel any better! :D

Sil

it does lol you were soooo far below me :) Operation 100 (95) is back on track at my house…

Cavocorax

Hahah. Glad to be of service! I’m aiming for 150 first…

drank Classic Black by Informal Tea.
4713 tasting notes

thanks for sending this one my way MissB this is a good solid HELLO MORNING tea :) There’s a deep feeling to this one and it’s not a thin brew at all. It’s bold and hearty without being too much, if that makes sense. there’s a taste at the end of the sip that is different from many of the other teas i’ve had as well, which makes for a pleasant and interesting cup of tea :)

oh Terri…my lovely tea sister. thank you for sharing this one with me. I love this one quite a bit. I’m currently sipping on this while reading on the balcony. It looks like i finished up enough of work this morning that i get to visit our friend on his birthday. This means at least one game + baby time AND i’ll get fed :) tomorrow we’re also going out for Summerlicious here in toronto and we’re going to try out a brazilian restaurant so that will be something to look forward to after what i imagine is going to be a crappy day of work lol

Not enough sipdowns today but at least i’m now under where i started after the drop off from variatea and cavocorax last night haha

TheTeaFairy

Oh lord…she did send me this one. I can see a Pure Bud tasting in a very near future :-)

Sil

it’s really nice!

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.
