sipdown! I needed something without caffeine just to change things up a bit. While this isn’t a bad fruity tea, it’s more a generic fruity like all those other fruity teas with hibiscus in it sort of fruity tea. sense make? :) It’s not a bad tea, but it’s not really a pomegranate tea. Oh well, still decent!

I kept the rest of that from the HHTTB. Somewhere in my mind I thought this would make a coldbrew, mixed with some other flavors. I haven’t done anything with it yet, of course!

Sil

i think it would make a good cold brew….speaking of which, i totally put my sichuan caravan in cold water once i couldn’t drink anymore hot haha

Sipdown! Can’t let Terri catch up! haha

This was one of the teas my lovely tea sister sent me, that i have apparently been drinking but not recording. Oopsy.

Those who know me, know that most oolongs i can live without. I really only dislike most green ones, but even the roasty dark ones sometimes have that distinctive taste that i’m not a fan of. This one borders being delicious and being a dark oolong that i’m less a fan of. There’s a touch of astringency but not enough to be a bad thing. There’s a sweetness to this as well, though i can feel a bit of floral hanging out in the back. Overall though, it’s been a decent cuppa to drink!

sipdown! I’m pretty happy about this one, not because i don’t really like this tea, but because the teabox is on it’s second around with me and i have just finally finished the all the teas that arrived the first time it came to me. I’m not sure i can keep up the pace going forward, but i do like being able to not have things in my cupboard for eons.

This has a bit of astringency to it, but not overly so. It’s somewhere in between a malty tea and a sweet tea…a very mellow tea.

Thanks again TB!

(257…how does my dust taste so far terri? lol)

Terri HarpLady

You’re already down to 257? LOL, I guess I’d better get serious. Just don’t forget my ‘tortoise & the hare’ analagy…
Go ahead….take a nap…lol

Sil

oh man i love this…except my brain thinks this is soup. not tea. thank you kittenna! really…this is super tasty delicious! It’s a savoury tea and though kittenna didn’t get much tomato, i for sure am. The black pepper adds a certain spiciness that i love. I can taste both the pepper and basil in this one. YUM! so glad i got to try this one out!

man… if blueberry cream cheese danish reblend tasted like this i’d be so much happier. theres a little bit of astringency to this, but the blueberry flavouring is pretty nice. it’s not super creamy, but it IS tasty. i added a little sugar and it made it oh so much better,cutting through the slightly astringent taste.

sample sipdown! Thanks kittenna :) This is a pretty decent chai tea. But it’s not pumpkin. It’s got a bunch of ginger in it that makes this an interesting blend and slightly different from some of the other chais that i like, but it’s tasty. Dropped the rating slightly though because pumpkin this is not. :)

Terri HarpLady

Speaking of Sleepy Hollow, have you seen the show? LOL

Sil

YES! haha i started watching it…still undecided but i’ll give it a few more episodes lol

Terri HarpLady

It’s a little cheesy, but there are points of interest :)

Sil

haha yeah we’ll see how it plays out. I am all for bad tv as well… ian doesn’t watch much tv so i watch 2-3 episodes of shows and decide if they’re worth his time. if they’re not up there, then i get to watch them when i want..and i get more tv time in since i ride public transit every day.

Dinosara

Haha, I’ve watched the first couple of episodes but I couldn’t take the cheesiness. Don’t think I’ll be watching this Monday’s ep. Guess it’s just not my type of show. :)

Sil

i’ve only seen the one so far and i’m leaning towards middle of my watch pile, but we’ll see how the second episode goes heh

Terri HarpLady

There are so many other great shows out there, but I only watch TV at Tony’s, so we’ll see if he decides to keep watching it. LOL

I was raised on front row Godzilla matinees. My cheese acceptance factor is pretty high. I just turn off the brain and go with it. Not great TV but nothing competing in the time slot I like better.

drank Sichuan Caravan by Verdant Tea
4653 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! I’ve been hoarding this tea that terri sent me because it’s been gone for soooo long. But Lily assured us it would be back in short order so i figured i could bust it out today. Mostly because it will give me something to drink most of the morning while i try some of my other samples that may not be as delicious. That way i always have something that i’m drinking to look forward to until i cant get any more steeps out of it lol

i really love this blend. the tea, the spices…it’s just a great mix of everything going on together!

Terri HarpLady

It is awesome…& I’m at the end of my supply ;_;

Sil

2 hours and i’m still drinking it and loving it. I will really miss this…

Terri HarpLady

Lets see…I have a secret supply of Yanxins reserve…I have elderberries…I have shredded dried ginger…What else was in there?

GAME ON!

Here we go Terri….first cup of the morning and I KNOW you’re probably still sleeping. This is a sample sipdownfrom Kittenna who was awesome enough to bring it to me since she knows I’m a fan of black straight teas. I haven’t had many Damn fine teas, but those that I have have had a taste that I can get behind. Teas one is no exception. It is not a knock your socks off sort of tea, but it IS a great morning tea. There is a smooth creaminess to this tea, while still being obviously black. It’s not overly bold, rather this is like a more mellow cousin. :) a really nice blend – I’m sure I’ll be up for trying more of get he I limited editions when they come out!

Terri HarpLady

Game on!!
I knew you’d get a head start, kind of like the tortoise & the hare. Run while you can, my little bunny! ;)

Sil

haha i’ll run out of steam eventually.

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.
