Another sample from Dexter. I must say this one fell flat for me. I followed the steeping parameters but it ended up tasting a whole lot like a random black tea. No floral notes for me really, and maybe just a hint of almond? maybe? Ever so thankful for the taste but this one just isn’t up my alley.

Sample from dexter that i enjoyed today. I have to say this was pretty much pumpkin spice – in a similar vein to stacy’s pumpkin cheesecake. that is to say, i didn’t much get chocolate either, and i wasn’t blown away by this one. it wasn’t a bad cup of tea, but i’m glad to have had the chance to try it before i picked up a larger quantity myself. thanks for the share dexter!

Another one that i pulled out this morning and thoroughly enjoyed. Something to be said about how this one takes me back to morning with mom at the UofA reference library. all those wonderful dusty books, the quiet, the learning…the time with mom. heavenly.

Love that little library snippet. Wish I were there—-but only if I can bring my blankie today!

Sil

drank Smoky Spice Black Tea by 52teas

admittedly i’ve had a litte wine now…so i’m not focused on this note. omgsrsly sent this to me and indicated on the bag that i should have it as a latte or nogtea…so i did. and it was goo esp once i added a little vanilla sugar to the mix.

…also jr mints + red wine = happy place for Sil.

Final Count: 164

Nicole

jr mints and red wine? interesting. :)

Sil

oh yes… but like WITH the wine… both in your mouth at the same time – most people drink wine with a meal and forget to actually have both in their mouth at the same time…not that i’m saying jr mints are a meal…i mean they could be..

OMGsrsly

That… mint and chocolate and wine? All together?!

Fjellrev

I’ve been craving red wine something fierce these past few days. Chocolate and red wine, I can see, but the peppermint, I can’t even imagine what that would be like.

Sil

we did a junk food pairing at a winery. It made my day our of all the junk food we did. the others were chips, chocolate chip cookies and twizzlers. All paired with different types of wines.

Sil

also depends on the red – but i haev a good sense for what i like when doing it heh now

drank Citrus Grove by Tealish

Another one from omgsrsly this one smells divine. what’s confusing to me is that this tastes like a fairly normal citrus blend, but there are peppercorns, coconut and cardamom in here…but all i’m really getting is lemon orange citrus delight. Not that i’m complaining, but it seems funny that i’m not getting some of the other flavours in here. either way, still a fun cup and tasty!

drank Snow Apple Spice by Silk Road

Apple teas are a dime a dozen. 95% of them are also spiced apple teas – cinnamon or otherwise. this one is no exception but it’s still pretty decent. there’s a little vanilla here to smooth out the cinnamon, and while the ingredients mention ginger, i’m not getting any. either way, this is tasty but nothing i need in my cupboard on a permanent basis! thanks omgsrsly

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.
