drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte

sample from omgsrsly this one isn’t too bad, but it’s not great either as far as blueberry teas go. it’s buleberry, but i wouldn’t call it merlot. And it’s not blueberry enough. still though, it’s not super sour which is typically rare in a tisane like this.

wishlist sample from dexter! this one was pretty tasty earlier today. I really love puerh and coffee and found this tea to be pretty damn tasty. As others have said, i didn’t really register the grapefruit exactly but the coffee came through as well as the cacao from the teas and the sort of maltiness blending things together. Enjoyed a few steeps of this before taking rental dog out for his hike in the woods off leash :)

drank Turtle Dove by A Quarter to Tea

Sample from dexter this one was far more “generic nut” and slight caramel to me than really being much like a turtle. The brew was lovely to smell and it was for sure a decent tea, but it wasn’t nearly as rich as i wanted it to be. Glad for the chance to try this one though, as this was on my list of tea to pick up :) thanks dex!

drank Banana Split by A Quarter to Tea

Delicious! Sample from dexter While i’m always a fan of more banana…this is a really nice sweet banana tea. There’s more going on than just banana, which would be you know…banana SPLIT :) there’s strawberry and a little caramel. it’s a white tea blend, so the flavours aren’t nearly as intense as i wish they were but this is a wonderful tea.

drank Spumoni Green Tea by A Quarter to Tea

Much better this time now that i didn’t steep it for too long. Spumoni is still not one of my favourite flavours, so this isn’t a tea for me in terms of keeping it in my cupboard, but i DO find this to be a pretty good capture of spumoni. If that was what you were looking for, i’d for sure recommend this tea :) thanks dexter!

i don’t love green teas…at least not enough to have more than a sample size in my cupboard. I just don’t reach for them often enough for me to get through them when they’re fresh. Funnily enough i seem to have a couple in my cupboard now,including this one that is very much more than a sample size. i’d had sample of it before and loved it, so i ended up buying more. thankfully, i still enjoy this tea though i’ll have to share with friends so that it gets enjoyed when it’s fresh.

grassy, seaweed..smooth…i feel like this one could be blended really nicely with some flavours for a spectactular green tea blend.

Another tasty green. I think i prefer the bellocq one though this one isn’t too bad. I for sure enjoy the autumn version better than spring. there’s a harshness to the tail end of this that i’m less a fan of but not enough for it to turn my opinion of this tea.

Still enjoying this tea, though it’s not quite french or american breakfast. More citrusy but still a good tea. And now…off to the samples! haha

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

Finished the day yesterday at 162 teas but that’s about 100 away from my goal this year haha. There’s no way i’ll get down to my goal. but i’m not really complaining since that’s largely due to my paris trip this year that was unplanned and where i went overboard. So i figure i’ve got a week to try and get through the samples that omgsrsly and dexter sent me and see where i end up :) started out with this one to wake me up before beginning my sample journey :) still delicious and malty.

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.
