it has been WAAAAY too long since i had this tea. I really love this blend, so much more than 3 friends. Not that three friends is bad, but it’s less for me. I really need to bring this out more often.

Another sample from my joint order with Cavo I keep mentioning her name in my tasting notes so that she’ll come pick up the THIRTY TEAS of her that are at my house. lol sadly this is another one that i forgot to track last night. I seem to recall this one being more of that woodsy sort of rooibos that has a tendency to overpower the flavours that are blended with it. That being said, I’d gladly try this again so i can make sure.

Final Count from yesterday: 153

Backlog from last night. I totally don’t remember much beyond this tasting like a smoothish sort of creamy tea. I liked it..but sadly i got distracted by my bed and forgot to pay attention to it. But thank you VariaTEA! :) it was enjoyable haha

VariaTEA

I am glad you liked it and don’t worry as there have been many times I drank cold cups of tea in the morning because I passed out before ever taking a sip.

Sami Kelsh

I totally do that! I’ll probably do that tonight!

drank Cinnamon Plum by The Naked Leaf

Another one from the Naked Leaf that less expensive than the blergamot one. I really enjoyed this one even though i accidentally let it get cold. I think this would be nice with a bit of honey or steeped with apple juice, similarly to the elderberry from verdant that i like. On the whole, it was nice getting to try out a few new teas and vendors through the travelling teabox. The downside being that because i only sampled a few teas, it was almost a challenge to make room for my teas hahaha. I don’t envy variaTEA :P

Blergamot…love it!

drank Bergamot Sage by The Naked Leaf

Another one from the box that i’ve added to steepster since i couldn’t’ find it anywhere. Soooo for the record, i almost added this to steepster as Blergamot Sage. heh. I picked this one because i was curious how the evil B would fare in a herbal. Turns out that this is a nice enough balance of B and other flavours, that it didn’t overwhelm or overpower things. It took a back seat to the sage, peppermint and lemon thyme and verbena. Even the peppermint blended nicely. The only downside, as i discovered in transposing info from the website…i think this company might be off their rocker in terms of pricing.
18$ for 50g of a herbal? on what planet? was i just drinking liquid gold? eesh! otherwise… a pretty tasty blend.

TheTeaFairy

Oh, great news in the tea world, there might be a tiny little spot in Sil’s life for B after all… Happy tea dance (maybe that’s what Farrell and the weird yellow things are dancing and singing about???)

VariaTEA

I thought I was shocked reading that you willingly drank a B tea but shock really set in when I read “18$ for 50g of a herbal”. I mean WHAT?!?! Are they on crack???

OMGsrsly

Sil will try any blergamot tea people send her, I’m pretty sure. If I had a more cruel sense of humour, I’d probably send her a box of blergh. :)

Sil

OMG – oh god… that would be so awful… i’d HAVE to try them..it would be like unwrapping a christmas present to find…like dirty laundry.

TF – haha that’s a funny mental picture
VT – I KNOW! right?

VariaTEA

Haha. I can just picture Sil getting all excited for a surprise package only to open it and start cursing OMGsrsly as she flips on the kettle.

Sil

i would probably cry…and yeah…go turn on the kettle lol

OMGsrsly

I might slip in one, Sil, but never a whole box!

drank Maple Chai by The Naked Leaf

A miss for me. I had high hopes for this one but sadly upon brewing it, it became largely a mess of bitter black tea with hints of cinnamon and ginger. Disappointing but im’ glad i got to try it since this totally would have been something i would have ordered!

drank Spiced Green by The Naked Leaf

GCTTB

I quite like this one. Thankfully the licorice root isn’t overpowering the rest of the tea, turning it into a sweet hot mess. I dislike i when licorice does that! I wish the ginger was a little more present in this one, so that it was a bit spicier, but overall it was pretty darn good! Love travelling tea boxes!

drank Strawberry Splash by Tealux

Another green from the box. I figure since i don’t typically buy greens, travelling boxes are a good way to try more! This one is quite tasty, which is a nice surprise since i’ve found that i much prefer tealux’s straight teas to their flavoured teas. just enough strawberry to make this one a positive experience for me, without the green taking over and making it grassy. Also, not sour, which makes me happy.

drank Green Mandarin Orange by The TeaCupany
5930 tasting notes

GCTTB I figure i need to try the last few teas from the tea box that i really wanted to try and get the rest on the move. I wanted to try this one even though it was a green because i enjoyed the other teas that dexter had shared with me from the tea cupany. I just haven’t had a chance to actually place an order myself….yet.

I really like this one. What’s funny though, is that i could love it even more as a puerh. The flavouring in this one reminds me a LOT of the puerhs that are put into the orange rinds. It’s for sure a mandarin flavour though, not strictly orange and that is whats makes me happy with it i think. Another win from the tea cuppany!

Dexter

Happy you liked this one.
Why am I not drinking/sampling more of my TeaCupanny teas?

Sil

because you have 23408234098 teas…

Dexter

Really? Is that the problem? I need to work on that… :))

Sil

HAHAHA

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.
