Another tea from kimquat! I’m not sure how i feel about this tea. It was a pleasant enough cup to drink but was it carrot cake? not really. I mean it had that vaguely cheesecakey icing sweetness feel to it, and the dry smell was really nice..but i wouldn’t call this carrot cake. So good cup of tea..but not carrot cake! lol thanks for sharing kimquat!

mmmm I’ve had this a couple times this week but keep forgetting to write a review on it. Kittenna shared this one with me and it’s delicious! Very much mandarin as opposed to “orange.” the flavour is subtle but blends really nicely with the tea to make a blend that is super tasty. I added a tiny bit of sugar to one of my cups and it was nice because the flavour popped just a little more. Overall a really nice take on these tea in oranges :)

Not much to say on this one beyond the fact that it is my puerh for the day. I only wanted to have one to focus on today – maybe a few more tomorrow – because my other half is home today and we’re trying to get things done! :) Adore this tea and need to make sure i’ve always got some in my cupboard. While i’ve finally finished this sample, i still have the loose 2011 version in my cupboard so YAY!

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.
