5800 Tasting Notes

need to pack, finish work and get things settled for the next couple days… sooo just stopping in to say THIS arrived and THIS is what i’m having for dinner. so there. Over the past few days i’ve had some old favourites, some new teas and mostly been successful in not killing anyone. Mostly. Hope everyone is doing awesome and having a grand ol’s time in the hood. :)

Sil

OMGsrsly

Oh Sil. Now I see you in your special hat with bird glasses, narrating like David Attenborough… “Now, what is that in this sea of people? It is the rare Cavo, in a highly unusual environment. Let’s go see what this Cavo is doing outside of its natural habitat.” :D

OMGsrsly

(Sorry Cavo! I couldn’t resist. :D )

Sil

OMGsrsly

Cavocorax

Hahahaha. You’ll see me. I’ve got a giant puffy bomber coat that makes me look 100lbs bigger. If I reverse it, it’s bright orange.

OMGsrsly

drank Caramel Oolong by Cornelia Bean

Thanks for sharing this one with me dexter i like the caramel flavour of this one and the oolong doesn’t bother me. It’s not a perfect caramel tea but i do like how the tea and the caramel are balanced in this. Neither one over powers so it doesn’t feel like i’m just drinking a flavoured tea. :)

I hate it when reviews disappear. I pulled this one out to be my puerh for today after reading misslena’s tasting note on special dark. :) I haven’t had this one in a long while so i figured it was time to work on my sample of this, especially if i place a mandala order for special dark! I’ll be drinking this most of today and that suits me just fine. My little turtle needs more tea love and this is a great tea. I’d say it’s a toss up on any given day whether i’ll love this or special dark most :)

MissLena

Yay for my note inspiring you to pull this one out! I should today too, but I don’t want to overcaffeinate..having a black tea right now lol. I hate being sensitive :(

MzPriss

I love this one. Also the Temple Stairs mini tous are good

Bio

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.
