This is also a tea i’m decupboarding. I know there are people out there who love this more than I do, so i’d rather it went to a home where it will be loved and sipped with pleasure. To those that i’ve swapped with before, i’m looking at you! send me a note if you are keep to have more.

Someone (not me) should start an earl grey TTB, or maybe a Floral TTB.

Sil

ew… lol

Lala

Can I get in on this EG box, ha ha.

Terri HarpLady

Lala, you could start it! I’ll be glad to contribute any EGs I have. :)

So… after much ado about nothing, I am decupboarding this tea. I had it again today and i find that it’s just not enjoyable for me, though i know a number steepster folks out there that i’ve swapped with have really enjoyed this. SO, for those that I’ve swapped with before, if this is of interest to you, send me a pm. I’m happy to send it off to a home that will enjoy it more than i do :)

Extremely tempting.

Terri HarpLady

I probably need to decupboard a few things…

Terri – it’s the long weekend so that means i’m going to take a hard look at my cupboard tomorrow while ian is at work. I’m tired of hoarding things that i don’t love..so there are a few that will come out and make way for swaps or something.

Terri HarpLady

Sounds like a good plan. Maybe I’ll try to do that on monday

sipdown! This is a tasty caramel rooibos. I really am looking forward to placing an order with NMT one of these days. it’s not overly “rooibosy” and there’s a nice creaminess to this one that is tasty! Thanks dexter!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Sil

for NMT, yes… i am looking at tealux this weekend though, mostly to have the tea here that i’m going to add to the BBB Box once it gets here.

Lariel

It’s so good. One of my faves from them.

sipdown! though apparently i forgot to add this one to my cupboard. This is a pretty decent black tea that i’m happy to try. It sounds like i really need to visit london…SOON!

drank Winter Walnut by Bayswater Tea Co.

Not a fan of this one. It’s relatively tasteless to me, though maybe i just needed to steep it for 6+ mins. It’s too bad, as i was hoping that this would be a decent walnut tea.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Choconut Mate by The TeaCupany

not a fan of this one, which is a little sad because i had high hopes for this one. Thanks for sending it my way though dexter! All i could taste in this was the mate, which i don’t love, but i keep trying to enjoy. I will hold off rating this one in case it’s just a matter of not hitting the sweet spot this time around. thanks dexter!

Dexter

LOL it’s funny how the taste we don’t like is usually ALL we can taste. I personally LOVED this and thought the mate was almost too hidden.

Sil

haha

sipdown! (207) not too shabby an assam from terri/nofars. It’s not my favourite but i like seeing the differences in various assams. This one is less bold, has a bit of astringency and isn’t very malty but it’s got a strength to it that i like. and the flavour is pretty decent! thanks guys!

drank Strawberry Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.

i have to agree with cavo on this one. It’s not a bad tea but it’s not nearly what i want it to be. I’m going to try cold brewing this to see if that makes a difference. But it’s mostly a strawberry black with a hint of something else going on. sorta.

Another delicious black from dexter! operation get under 200 this weekend so i can make a teeny, tiny purchase is in effect! lol. I ended up drinking this one without really stopping to focus on it while doing this dishes this morning. What i can say is that this is somewhere between a fruity tea and a malty tea. It’s got a bit of both happening, though not overwhelmingly so. I really need to place an order with this company soonish…

drank Sweet Potato Pie by The TeaCupany
4818 tasting notes

woot! another tea from dexter and one of the ones i was most wary about, though less so once i read her review. I am one of those sweet potato haters. I think it’s because they’re “sweet” lol However this tea is really nice! It reminds me of the sort of pumpkin spice theme that happens around this time, but it’s not pumpkin, it’s more sweet potato. The base is still present, and the flavours blend together really well. I couldn’t drink this all the time, but this is quite good. Makes me wonder how it would fare as a latte! Thanks for sharing dexter!

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.
