mmm this was a tasty cup! Thank you Cavo! I quite enjoyed this earlier today. This was a cherry vanilla tea to me, which i guess is good since that’s what it’s trying to be, along with some cinnamon. I didn’t get much in the way of the cinnamon, but the cherry and vanilla left a juicy impression in my mouth that made for an enjoyable cup of tea today!

thanks cavo! this one was sort of meh for me. The ingredients sort of blended into a cremy non distinct sort of flavour. The apple came out a little more as it cooled off, but hot this was not something i was dying to drink. Also, my poor poor cupboard is so exploded right now….

Cavocorax

Yep! Let it go away! :P Sip, sip, sip!

Cavocorax Spoiled me with samples of her custom adagio blends which makes me super happy. Not because i think that i’ll love any of them but because i love trying ALL the teas, and maybe some of them will be nice enough. :) I had this one very early and so long ago. What i remember is that this was sort of an average cup of tea with some cinnamon. I’m trying hard not to look at the ingredients beyond black/green/rooibos tea so that i can really see what flavours i taste when i drink them :)

drank Kenyan Black by Justea

i had this first thing in the morning which seems so long ago that i can’t even think. I was hoping to get some tea in to me today but it’s been one thing after another with work today. I did however get to enjoy this cup again courtesy of Cavocorax this morning with my bagel, the only thing i’ve managed to eat today! soo tasty! and i still have another cup to enjoy later :) thanks cavo!

backlog from yesterday. This one was sent to me by terri and she got it from teaexplorer. I have to say, this is a really nice tea. I love that the smoek isn’t super intense and, as with all my smokey teas, i tried it with maple syrup. The result was a delicious tasty cup that i gulped down and was finished before long.

Final Count Yesterday: 193 (thanks to Cavocorax and VariaTEA)

VariaTEA

I have faith that you will get down to 140 by the end of the month. You have magic “sipdown” powers.

Sami Kelsh

Smoke and maple syrup? Ooh, get in.

Sil

i hope so variaTEA…today is not condusive to me getting anything done. even though i AM at home. ugh

Sami..it’s the best.

drank Chocolate & Strawberry Puer by Lupicia
6059 tasting notes

mmmm another backlog from yesterday. I decided to open this one up since it’s been ages since i had it and i wanted to see if i still love it. and i do. :) I like the subtleness of the strawberry flavour and how well it blends with both the chocolate and the puerh. It really is just a great cup of flavoured puerh :) i’ll have to try it as a latte before i finish it up, as i think that might be pretty tasty!

drank Black Pearl by Mandala Tea
6059 tasting notes

backlog from yesterday. I had these in the morning and i’m going to call them
keychange’s since she was kind enough to send me a few more of these babies that i adore! I relaly hope that someday Garrett can source these again since they are currently my favourite black pearls. there’s just something about the way they brew up that has me reaching for them over others when i want pearls. :) thanks keychange!

Holly Faye

I’m curious, have you had Teavivre’s black pearl tea? How does this compare?

Sil

teavivres are my number 2 in the list…though because mandala’s are in short supply :)

drank Tropical Dream by RiverTea
6059 tasting notes

hmmmm tonight this tastes a little like cough medicine. Apparently i didn’t get enough pineapple chunks or soemthing in this cup. It looks like this may not be the tea for me if the cups stop being consistently good. Will try a few more and see what the final verdict is later.
Final Count: 160 (i’m thinking i should be worried if that’s 10 sipdowns in a day that i did NOT work from home lol)

VariaTEA

160?! I got some sipping to do it seems.

Sil

Naw…. I get cavos tea tomorrow plus I expect your teas and shmiracles soonish heh

drank Rhubarb & Cream by Whittard of Chelsea
6059 tasting notes

sooooo i drank the world tonight. and just when i was about to call it quits, i realised i was at 161. No way i can leave my cupboard at that! Soooo here’s another one haha. This one is another from awkward soul via terri and it’s interesting. After the much richer creamier teas that i had, this one is on the light side. I AM getting rhubarb taste here but different from the rhubarb that stacy used in ruby pie. It’s creamy and the black base in this one isn’t bitter or overpowering. Overall, not a tea that i’m going to be in love with, but still a good cup this evening…

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.
