i love this tea. Bumping up the rating as i had it today in a travel mug and it was super awesome for the day. Just the right blend of lime and creaminess from the marshmallow. damn going to miss these when they’re gone :(

Dammit. I need this from you. >__> And J was sick all last week so I couldn’t tempt you into visiting!

Sil

Cool! I’ll keep that in mind – not sure what day we’re doing our game yet!

drank Berry Poppins by DAVIDsTEA
7981 tasting notes

Now that i’ve had this at home a couple times, i realise what was familiar about it – it has that same after taste, under taste that apple cider had. And while it doesn’t make me dislike the tea immediately, i know that if i had this in a larger quantity it would get old fast. Ignoring that, this has got a relatively nice berry taste and isn’t half bad. It just doesn’t have the longevity that other teas have.

Final Count: 124

That’s an interesting observation. I’ll try to see if I get that same undertone next time.

if apple cider has cream flavouring in it – it might be that… i was looking at the ingredients last night.

Passing the last little bit of this off to tea friends to try. I don’t think i’ve shared this one with them but if i have…well oopsy. lol Sometimes with all the swapping over time, it’s hard to remember which i’ve shared. This one is enjoyable but is fussy…sometimes it’s SPOT on…other times, not so much.

I don’t take this one out often because i never want it to go away but today i needed something light, and delicious and hell, it was a nice warm spring day today so it seemed fitting. Again, this one never fails to disappoint.

Finished this one over the weekend as well. A really great combination of sweet and spicy. Not much else to say beyond the fact that this would have been a restock :)

The last of my samples from Wymm Tea. I have to say i’m impressed with this companies offerings so far. They have all been thoroughly enjoyable even if i haven’t managed to get very good descriptions of the teas out there imo. I recommend giving them a shot if you’re a puerh fan and maybe even if you’re not. As i’ve said before, i generally prefer shou but i’m not opposed to trying out sheng’s as one of my favourite puerhs is a sheng :)

this one is another that i would gladly put in my cupboard and will likely order once i’m allowed to. this one started out on the softer side of things but quickly turned in to a much stronger brew. I didn’t experience any sort of bitterness in these steeps but i was keeping them short with a bit cooler temp than normal.

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.
