mmmmm so goooooood. Gotta love teas where the teas you pick just work out…well at least while i was at work earlier. had this one and a couple others as a treat to kick monday off right given my crappy weekend. Can’t wait until i have a giant bursty bag of this in my house again…for now.. we make the last little bit from cavo last me until it gets here :)

drank Magic Dragon by DAVIDsTEA
4719 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

Cavocorax

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

drank Classic Black by Informal Tea.

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

mmmmmm thanks for sending this one my way YYZ i like this one better than the other from yesterday. This one is bolder and closer to being like LB from verdant. Sadly i had this several hours ago, which means i’m not nearly as close to what it tasted like :( I just know that this was delicious and would end up on me reorder for sure haha

yyz

I liked this one better too. It’s the cheaper of the two which is a bonus too. Ironically when I bought the other one I thought I was getting this one but it was the jinjunmei ( that was the box shipped directly from tokai verdant) they sent three bags though and the packaging is the same so maybe I do have more of this and don’t know it.

mmmmmmmmmmmm…….

Farewell my other doctor :) A nice accompaniment to the breakfast i made myself…no it wasn’t pancakes but it was a delicious omelet!

I likely won’t reorder this one but it was one of my favourites from the 10 pack sampler that i picked up. :)

it’s back. Cavocorax had variatea drop this off and it’s amaaaaazing because yesterday was the suck. and now i have my tea back and since my other stash is on the way this WILL likely hold me through until it gets here lol. first cup of the day because im’ working…AGAIN..and i’m exausted from yesterday. delicious cup of familiar goodness….after 2 years of this tea i am still a fan. still love it.

I’m sorry your job is punishing you at the moment Sil. More excellent tea! I hope it gets better soon.

TheTeaFairy

Are you taking vacations at your birthday??

Sil

TheTeaFairy

Ridiculous!!!! Sad face for you :-(

Cavocorax

Yay! Comfort tea is back! :D I really hope you get some downtime soon though. Your weekend was total bs. :|

Sil

Cavocorax

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.
