5360 Tasting Notes

bumping up the rating on this one a little because today, it was positively perfect. Seriously…i am a fan of a number of WP’s straight blacks…possibly even more so than his flavoured blacks :) I’ll have to look at restocking this once i’m through more of my WP teas…still have a few months i can hold off for i think…..maybe….

Final Count: 83 (thanks to Cameron B mostly!)

drank Nina's Japon by Nina's Paris
5360 tasting notes

EEP! i finished up 1 of my two bags of this today and that makes me a sad panda since it means i’ll be running out soon. This is hands down my favourite tea from nina’s – i think largely in part because i’m a)not a fan of their rooibs and b) don’t love “red fruit” as a flavour regardless of which tea company it’s from lol However, this tea is enough to keep me coming back again and again to Nina’s. love the vanilla, creamy, genmaicha flavour!

Yay for Japon! I need to pick up more too.

Kittenna

If anyone ever makes an order, count me in for a bag of Japon, heh. I didn’t overly care for the other teas but my sample of that one was tasty :D

Roswell Strange

Yes; if a Nina’s order ever becomes a reality I want more Japon and Jamais Vu…

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

noms. tea for today to get me through the day. Verdant is hopefuly going to be posting blends this weekend, so i’m excited for that….though less impressed with the CAD $ being at a record low in 5 yrs… that makes tea buying EXPENSIVE damnit. :(

received teas from cameron and damn fine tea today so that’s exciting…even if it means an increase in cupboard size heh.

Fjellrev

That makes me really nervous about the PayPal conversions, especially. I remember back in the day when 1 CAD was like 1.03 USD, PayPal still wanted more Canadian monies per American dollar. Now? Yikes.

Sil

yeah paypal rate is crap. worse case if there’s something you really want, i can buy it, have it sent to you and then give you my rate, which will be better 99.9% of the time heh

drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia

I made this as a latte tonight just to see how the milk would blend with the hojicha and the flavouring. I have to say, i’m a fan! I know part of it is the warm milk factor, but i am enjoying this a lot.

noms! I have thoroughly enjoyed this one. Made a cup of this after dinner – my other half is going to be working most evenings this week so i’m on my own a lot. I really like that this is sweet with a kick of spicy. I’ll be picking up more of this in future – I really like this type of tea in the evenings while reading a book or relaxing.

drank Ambangulu - Tanzania by Tea Time
5360 tasting notes

mmm i keep forgetting to write notes on this tea. I’ve had it a few times now and figured since i’ve shared a little of this with a few people, i should get to writing a note on this one. this is an interesting tea. it reminds me of “red rose” from my chilhood but a better quality lol. this is more of a milk and sugar sort of tea for me with a rich thickness to it, a slight bit of malt and a brightness here that i could see turning bitter if over steeped.

i need to remember trying this steeped in milk before i’m actually finished with it. While this is an excellent chai, it’s still not my favourite. I generally find myself pulling some of the cloves out, because there are a few too many for my tastes. I so like the sweetness of this one that goes along nicely with the peppery sort of spiciness to it. for sure happy with this one from WP :)

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.
