had this again this afternoon after i finally got tired of the two puerhs i spent the afternoon enjoying. I have a sneaking suspicion this may end up at kitenna’s house before too long as she seems to have enjoyed it more than us. there’s something about it that i just can’t get behind. It’s lovely, but not the tea for me anymore.

Also drinking this one today….. First steep reminds me of old woods that have just had rain.

Later steeps are even more enjoyable. I can see where people pick up on sweeter and spicier notes. Having fun drinking this throughout the afternoon. Not many sipdowns today but some really enjoyable time with 2 puerhs.

Drinking this one today….should be a fun time. First steep reminds me of old books. (Hey no one said this would be a good tasting note…more to come)

Really enjoying the later steeps of this one. There are earthy notes here, but it’s kind of like tasting a wet forest. looking forward to more steeps.

drank Almond Sugar Cookie by Simpson & Vail

backlog from yesterday – this was my other tea to accompany dinner. I wanted to see how close to brioche it tasted, and the verdict is, not really at all haha. I prefer brioche but not by leaps and bounds. It just has a whole cookie feeling going on, whereas this is tasty but not quite embracing the whole feeling of a delicious cookie.

I had this yesterday with thanksgiving dinner at friends. No turkey but we managed a pork roast so that was fun. I’m so exhausted from work that i fell asleep in a chair after dinner, but it was still a good time lol I still really enjoy this tea :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you a little late! Glad you could enjoy it!

Cold brewing didn’t make this much better, in fact i think i’d probably argue that it made it less drinkable. ah well, at least i tried!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

backlog from yesterday. This wasn’t nearly as tasty as the first time i had it, though i’m not sure why. Maybe i just wasn’t in the right mood.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Noël en Provence by Dammann Freres

thank goodness the lavander in this is almost non existant. i was a little worried but shouldn’t have been. This is a delightful strawberry, fig tea. It reminds me a lot of strawbery jam – real strawberry jam with that mouthful of deliciousness you get when you lick the spoon. mmmm glad i have enough for another cup of this later!

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.
