I don’t like floral teas. I don’t particularly like green cherry teas. But i bought this and i’m drinking it and suddenly i’m exausted and can’t review much more. maybe more tomorrow lol

drank Peach Black Tea by PureAromaTea
4043 tasting notes

This might be one of my favourite peach teas yet. Mostly because its paired with a black base, and much like purearomas description says, it blends with the base rather than becoming one of those overpowering “peach” teas that tastes a lot like peach juice. Not that I personally mind peach juice but sometimes I want tea….not juice. :) this is almost too sweet for me without any additives so I imagine this would make a really nice cold brew. It’s something ill have to try one of these days. Overall I really like how subtle this is, without losing itself. It’s also nice to have a peach black instead of a peach green. Purearoma, you do great things with tea!

I’ll definitely check them out. In a few months.

Sil

Morning tea from Terri! I’m doing my best to try and get through the rest of the samples that she sent me and i finally feel like i’m starting to make some headway lol. I brewed this western style since i need to pack and go, but i may try resteeping this tonight when i get home since it’s such a lovely tea.

This isn’t a BOLD tea, but it is a sweeter, malty tea that has a full flavour going on. It’s been a nice comforting cup during this morning’s crap show at work.

drank Caramel Apple by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
4043 tasting notes

mmmm another tasty tea for this evening. I have a large number of rooibos samples that i need to get cracking on especially if i’m going to get this cupboard under control! So i’m going to try and do my best to have 1 or 2 in the evenings so that I can work on those. This apple caramelish flavour grows on me each time that i have it. :) Thanks again Kallieboo!

drank Vanilla Cinnamon Bun by Compass Teas
4043 tasting notes

Sipdown! (276) Yes..that’s 2 higher than yesterday but i found a couple of teas i hadn’t logged in my cupboard and since my verdant cups arrive today, so did the sample that i tucked into that order to get free shipping lol.

I still like the taste of this one. Vanilla and cinnamon…this is a really smooth blend.

thank you lala! I need to try this as a cold brew…as a warm brew it’s really nice. The strawberry blends nicely with the green tea without turning artificial….aaaand work just interrupted this a whole lot. will rate this and provide a better tasting note next brew. Stupid work.

Lala

Happy you liked this one. This one is great cold.

Sil

awesome…looking forward to trying it cold :) i need more cold brews for the summer!

mmmm thanks lala I’m not yet sure how i feel about this tea. I’m not overly a fan of white teas most of the time but this tea has enough flavour going on that i think i can get behind this.

There’s a citrusy smell to the dry tea that is quite enticing. Brewed, this isn’t overly tangerine like but it’s not bad either. There’s a sweet and spicy taste going on here that is unique from a lot of teas that i’ve had. I’m not sure what about this tea is supposed to make it “parfait” like, but i’m fine with that lol. I quite like this, though i also really want to try it cold brewed to see what happens. thank you lala

thank you lala! so uh…i’m going to have to give this one another shot. I totally lost track of brewing it..so i’m pretty sure it sat there for about 15 mins. End result? um sour that makes the side of my mouth do that watering thing. lol so yeah… potential for good things here, ruined by my inability to pay attention tonight haha sorry lala! luckily i have more to play with so thank you for that!

drank Chocolate Orange Bliss by Ovation Teas
4043 tasting notes

thank you kittylovestea for this one in our swaps! So not only did Kitty send along this tea but she was also amazing and sent along a package of jaffa cakes for me to try since they aren’t a thing out here in Canada. Can i just say we are missing out! But i’m also glad because i would eat them all the damn time.

This tea is delicious! Those who have been following know that i love chocolate orange…it’s one of my favourite flavour combinations. This tea is more chocolate than orange but that doesn’t take away from it’s deliciousness :) I like the chocolate in this tea. It’s lacking that weirdly artificial taste that a lot of teas have. I just wish the orange was a weeeee bit stronger. Overall though, looking forward to drinking up more of this! :)

Amariel

Jaffa cakes are awesome. I think some stores here have them.

Sil

yeah “specialty” stores out here have them…6$ for 12 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.
