drank Vanilla Citrus Spice by Verdant Tea

I’m so glad i bought an ounce of this before my sample arrived and i’d even tried it. This is the perfect fall/winter tea for me. It’s like a chai but then it softens as the vanilla comes to the forefront. Later, as it starts to cool, i can taste the base coming through more strongly. Lending an almost chocolatey sort of vanilla blend.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec
caile

Sounds so tasty!

I bought this when i was in victoria this summer, hoping that it would be more like the other orange puerh that i tried from…shmiracles i think it was? In any case, i was really looking forward to that puerh with the subtle orange flavouring from the mandarin that it was packaged in. The dry leaf certainly smelled that way, but once brewed this tastes mostly like a woodsy bold puerh. Not a bad cup, but not what i was hoping for.

drank Russian Caravan by PureAromaTea

sipdown! this is a pretty good average russian caravan. This is not their smokey version, which suits me fine this morning. It’s a refreshing tea without the boldness that i like in a morning tea, so this would like be more of an afternoon tea for me. Overall a decent blend

Sipdown! this is a fantastic tea! It’s slightly malty with a bit of fruity deliciousness. There’s a sweetness to this that i am really enjoying that goes hand in hand with the slight citrus and background hints of slight bitterness. thanks so much terri (and nofars)!

this is a tasty smooth light brew. i love the honey notes in this and how the brew is just an overall pleasant cup to start the day.

drank Pumpkin Spice Rooibos by Tealux

mmm a sample from dexter, which i have apparently already tried once, but it’s good to revist teas. I can totally understand why she gets “cantaloupe” from this one, as do others. For me, it’s more of a squashy spicey cantaloupe pumpkin tea. it’s weird, but pretty darn tasty! I am enjoying this a bunch tonight as i organise my tea cupboard. It looks like i’m ending the evening at 206, but that’s after adding in the teas from taiwan tea crafts that i picked up from the post office today. I also have a plan for tomorrow…i WILL get to 200 by the end of sunday…oh yes i will. Even if Kittenna drops off teas for me, i WILL manage it!

I had this again tonight..pretty tasty all things considered but if you don’t like hibiscus, it’s best to keep the steeping short! and add sugar :)

this tea has grown on me. I had a cup of this one earlier today to see how i still felt about it and it turns out, i like it better than i used to. I need to drink this more often since it’s a really nice blend of fruity caramel vanilla deliciousness!

Terri HarpLady

did someone say caramel & vanilla?

Sil

and cherry…

Terri HarpLady

but not the cough syrup kind of cherry, right?

Sil

no… it’s more subtle. I can add some to your box lol

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.
