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 :)

Cavocorax

Awwww. That’s pretty exhausted!

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

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!

sipdown! The rest of this is going over to terri to try. I am really enjoying this tea a bunch. It’s not an overly intense smokey tea – there are sweet notes in it and it’s got a depth to it that i really like. It’s also a very smooth tea to drink. As always, I added a bit of maple syrup to this and i am in my happy place. Gulped this one down before i even realised it was all gone.

drank Mango Chai by Tealux

pretty sure i don’t like this tea. I accidentally let the cup cool as i was distracted when i had it, so i’ll give it another shot. that being said, not much about it made me want to drink it once it had cooled off. That’s ok though, as i think i’ve gradually leraned that tealux = straight teas for me.

drank Figue Fraîche by Dammann Freres

Sipdown! This is another tea from the lovely dinosara and man…this is delicious! I really am loving this one – i wish i had a bit more to send to gracebtlb as it might just fill the figgy void i know she has. This is a medium bodied tea, that tastes just like black figs to me. It’s like a fruit garden and reminds me of biting into a fresh fig. I love it! thanks dinosara!

Dinosara

Mm, yes I love this one! Perfect fig.

Oh man, that sounds wonderful. I love figs and would kill for a good fresh fig-tasting tea as I can’t get fresh figs too often here. Yum.

Terri HarpLady

ooohhh, this sounds very interesting!

sipdown! this is a pretty tasty yellow tea. It’s not overly strong. I wish there was a bit more sweetness to it, but it’s not too bad. There’s a bit of fruitiness to this that is nice, though as the sup cools, that blends into the background of things.

YAY! 200! now to get a few more in to account for the verdant blends i’ll be getting in a couple weeks.

Cavocorax

200! :O Now… to keep it there? For the next month?

Sil

i’m under 200 as of yesterday so today i’m probably going to drink some of my older teas or teas that i have lots of…and maybe a couple puerhs

This is uh…an interesting looking tea. I’m going to have to go with Terri on this one… i put a small taste into my mouth and then promptly had to spit it out. Ew…this is uh… not good.

sipdown! I think i need to get my hands on a few more norbu teas. This is a lovely tea. This is a tea with an earthy taste. there’s some sweetness to this as well, and it reminds me of something that i can’t quite place.

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.
