drank Cinnamon Swirl Bread by sTEAp Shoppe
5370 tasting notes

Almost at the end of this tin. I’m not sure i’ll repurchase – not because i don’t enjoy it but i am a)losing my tea mule and b)find that there are other teas i tend to reach for first.

That being said, this is a great tea! and i highly recommend it for anyone looking for a delicious dessert tea that tastes like a cinnamon bun and resteeps REALLY well, without becoming a wimpy flavourless tea in the resteeps :)

Bonnie

And, it’s a puerh!

Cavocorax

I enjoyed this one too, but I’m not sure about a repurchase either as I wasn’t so crazy about the others teas, and don’t like making an order for just ONE tea.

Amariel

It is really good though.

OMGsrsly

We could just order a massive amount of the one tea. Everyone getting 1-2 oz. :D

5370 tasting notes

this is actually this tea + divine temptation and my whole house smells like a delicious wonderful thing. I am in my happy place now. Glad to have this back in my house! Thank you for sending more my way omgsrsly! so that i could try blending the two teas together. sooooo good!

Shmiracles

Sil

OMGsrsly

When you say ‘TRY ALL THE TEAS!’ you really mean it. O.o

Sil

I always say what I mean lol why do you think I also keep drinking earl greys lol

tigress_al

Whoa, I thought my 600 was lots! You go!!

Sil

don’t know your 600! that’s awesome! i drink a LOT of tea..and this is my version of a mini blog without having to actually blog lol

OMGsrsly

Are you going to try that one I sent you? :D

Sil

It’s on deck for this weekend during operation “figure out how my cupboard exploded when it’s not half the size it was” I have 23 teas to sipdown minimum before the end of the month

Shmiracles

July 2012, huh. i joined in April 2012 and i’m not even half way to your numbers. i’m such a SLACKER! i better start the swaps back up! :)

Cavocorax

1333 teas tasted? That’s amazing! :D
And I’ll try and come over in the next week and clean up your cupboard. Y’know. Just helping out. :P

Sil

I have an entire box and a half of “swap teas” as well for you to root through…they’re not in my cupboard….if I haven’t swapped them. Away by July, to the garbage they go!

Fjellrev

Sil, you’re a tea-drinking machine.

Amariel

This is good stuff. I have a little Divine Temptation left, but I definitely could use more of both.

drank Imperial Keemun by SOKO Tea House
5370 tasting notes

Another tea from omgsrsly I was hoping for good things from this keemun since i do love a good keemun. However, this one comes across as a little wimpy imo. I’ve got more to play with, so i’ll see if playing around with the tea helps. I like keemuns when they’re bolder and make me pay attention. this one seemed content to just hang out :) still not a bad cup though!

OMGsrsly

(I haven’t tried this one yet.) Glad it’s ok. I should probably try it before I give it to my parents!

Sil

Clearly your cupboard isn’t up to date….I had to add two teas to the database! ;)

OMGsrsly

LOL Yeah, this one and the Yunnan. Right? I haven’t even tried them. They’re not for me, so I didn’t add them when I got home.

Sil

mmmhmmm….

OMGsrsly

Haha, sure, don’t believe me.

drank Classic Big Red Robe by Silk Road
5370 tasting notes

sample sipdown (146) on this one even though omgsrsly sent me enough for at least another cup! the reason? I’m sending this along to terri to try as well since she appreciates a good oolong much more than i do. I can say, that i i quite like this one, though as with most oolongs, i’d be hard pressed to keep it in regular rotation in my cupboard. This one has a bit of a sweet note to it along with the roasty oolong taste that i prefer a bit more than the previous teavivre oolong i had today. It was nice to be able to drink them in close timing :) thanks omgsrsly!

Indigobloom

Woaw oolong alert! :P

My internet is being stupid today. I had this one and it’s not bad but it’s still an oolong for me. ;)

also…the new version of the app apparently seems to rate everything at 100 now..

Another sipdown from omgsrsly

Not a fan of this one..I like it a lot in theory…but they missed the boat when they decided “spiced” meant overload this with cloves. The citrusy flavour and the tea are quite nice if you can ignore the cloves. too bad…i had hopes for this one. (on a side note, why do all teabags say boiling water???lol)

drank Qing Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea
5370 tasting notes

I had this again today because that is a semi sipdown. I’ve finished off the bit from the BBB Box that tastybrew sent us and now i just have the ounce that i recently purchased myself for black friday haha. Still a win since it’s an “older” tea out of my cupboard haha I love this one. not much more to say beyond the fact that it’s a good, tasty, tasty black and another find offering from Yezi tea. I’m glad tastybrew found them!

drank Chocolate Puerh by Numi Organic Tea
5370 tasting notes

thanks OMGsrsly! I opted for this one today because it’s an easy sipdown lol i need a few of those to get me going before more tea comes in. For a bagged tea i quite like this! It’s not overly puerh-ish but the tea is still a little present. You do need to give is a quick stir since some of the chocolate settles, but this would be good for those times when im’ at work and don’t want to fuss. appreciate the share!

OMGsrsly

This is a work tea for me. I find it can sit for ages with the tea bag in, and just needs a bit of a swirl for the (I guess) cocoa powder to resuspend. Perfect because I can’t have anything at my desk.

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.
