drank Vanilla Bean Black Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
4729 tasting notes

Very nearly a sipdown with this one. I have just a little left to do a taste comparison with 2 other vanilla blacks in my cupboard, possibly tomorrow. This was my morning tea. I’ve been trying to do myself a favour and make my travel mug teas and then make another cup of tea that i have to sit and drink at the table while not doing anything else, before i leave for work. Why? Because my days have been super long, and doing this guarantees that i take 5-20 mins every day for myself. to sit. to drink. to relax.

This tea is pretty average, but decent enough. I think after a full 2 oz of it, i’m about done with it, though i would possibly order it again in future on a rotational basis. it’s not astringent and the flavour is nice enough.

uh..sipdown. i had this something like 17 hours ago. it was a good start to my day. i feel really bad because i have no idea what to write about it. I think it was fairly average…nothing spectacular but an over all decent version. i apologise tao…you deserve a better review.

everyone is trying my brioche…and that’s ok ’cause i like to share..but now i feel like hoarding since it took me so long to be able to get it in stock with a sale lol. i think next time i pick up 4oz lol

Fjellrev

I trust your judgement, so next time there is a sale, I would definitely order some for myself. :)

TastyBrew

Yeah, this tea is one I feel ok buying in bulk because I’ll never get sick of it. So yummy.

Sil

incendiare…i can send some your way to try first. Tastybrew was super generous to me and i’m happy to pay it forward lol

Fjellrev

Nono, you don’t really have to! I was going to order last time but couldn’t figure out what else to order, and wasn’t sure if the samples of other stuff are really worth $4, so I got frustrated and walked away haha. But if you truly think this tea is that great, I’ll seriously take the plunge and make an order sometime.

Sil

so i ordered samples the other day with my order just because i had a little extra cash..from the way some of them are working out you’ll get about 5-6 normal people cups worth in the samples

Fjellrev

Oh wow, that’s pretty decent then. Thanks for letting me know.

Terri HarpLady

sipdown! which is a good thing since i received my two little red cup samples today…so at least my cupboard didn’t increase :) there’s still hope for me getting to 200 by the end of this weekend. i think.

This was a tasty cup…i’d even consider a re-order from time to time, to change things up in my cupboard. :)

well crap…that’s a sipdown, i have a cup left, but that’s being tucked away for the lovely cavocorax. :) I’ve ordered more of another lot of this one, so i hope it’s as delicious as this lot was…

Cavocorax

this was my morning cup…before i left for work. i sat down at my dining room table and paused. not an amazing tea to do so with, but it was important to just take a moment and stop. everything. and i’m glad that i did because worked sucked. :)

drank Choco*Late by American Tea Room
4729 tasting notes

sipdown! uh 224. I was enjoying this…immensely as i made it as a latte today – steeped in milk. as i was contemplating my tasting note though, someone shared news with me about an old “friend” of mine. For those that don’t know, i used to play world of warcraft pretty heavily and regularly. (story time now..no more tea comments, move on if you’re looking for those). started when the game launched etc..yadda yadda, was an officer in a guild, pulled 40 ppl through molten core etc but at a casual level i was proud to have gone through things with. None of this raiding 20 hours a week for me. long story short, one of my friends from wow passed away last weekend and the news has trickled over to me tonight. I haven’t talked to “runabout” in a while, but we kept in touch over the years. I honestly didn’t expect news of his death to hit me quite as hard as it has. One of those random internet friends….we met in person a couple times with the florida crew, but mostly we chatted in game and through email, trying to coordinate things. So right now, i’m waxing poetic about the good times we had, drinking my tea and smiling at internet friends. something my parents don’t understand as they didn’t grow up in this generation, but something i whole heartedly understand as our world has become more and more connected through our ability to share with one another. A silly game, yes but one that allowed me to meet some FABULOUS people, that i’m still friends with…i’ve shared weddings and births and other such events…and tonight….the first death. And it’s floored me. good night.

I’m sorry to hear it. I definitely identify with what you mean—there are people I “met” online over a decade ago and feel in many ways closer to than most of my in-town friends.

OMGsrsly

Oh, I’m so sorry to hear.

Terri HarpLady

Sorry to hear this sad news, sister.

Cavocorax

Oh. That’s terrible. It sounds like you guys had some great times together – doesn’t matter if it was “only” over the internet. <3 :(

Fjellrev

Aww no, Sil, I’m so sorry.

keychange

oh gosh, sil. I’ve unfortunately known a lot of people online who’ve passed away, and of course it hits you so hard. And makes you wish you’d spoken to them more. etc. I’m thinking of you and I’m sorry it hurts so badly right now. :(

Tea Sipper

I’ve very sorry! If you haven’t, check out The Guild on youtube or watchtheguild.com when you are ready to laugh.

sipdown on this one (225) i don’t like it. pretty sure it’s the oolong base that just ruins it for me. it’s not one of those tasty oolongs i am ok with..instead it’s got this weird ick factor going on when mixed with the orange and almond. yep..oh well, glad i got to try it since this is one i would have expected to have liked!

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.
