Another cup from last night and a good balance to the kaphaa. I won’t restock this one but i’m happy enough with the 50g i picked up for a limey drink when i want that sort of citrus in my life haha

Final Count: 124

mmmm i pulled this one out again last night – haven’t had it in a while. Still loving the spiciness of this one with a splash of honey. 2 min steep still because otherwise it’s too damn spicy for me! :)

drank Jin Jun Mei by The Finest Brew

As some of you might know, jin jun mei’s fall in to 2 categories for me – yes and no. lol They’re very hit and miss for me, but i continue to try various ones to see if there is a perfect one for me. This one, from Anlina falls on the “yes” side. this was a nice cup of tea yesterday – smooth and slightly smoky with a little sweetness on the side, sort of like sweet potatoes. All in all, a nice cup! thanks so much Anlina!

That’s a solid dichotomy. :)

thank you Anlina for sharing this one with me. I grabbed this one to try yesterday and hadn’t looked at what it was supposed to be. What resulted was a really nice, vanilla berry tea – leaning towards strawberry with just a sense or cream. It was delicious and a great first introduction to this company!

Oooob! You can’t go wrong with slightly creamy strawberry.

drank Dark Side of the Melon by Butiki Teas

I was going through my tea box today to find another tea that i wanted to add to the HGTTB from a local shop and found this one again. I’d tucked it away to save for later but because it’s not in original packaging (i let cavo have that with our split), i figured i should just enjoy it and finish it while it’s still fresh. I have a couple cups left of this one but man i am really digging the melon and espresso flavouring. just a really enjoyable cup with lunch!

this one still makes me sad that it won’t likely ever be a tea again. I’d love for this experiment to be tried again because i adore this tea. After drinking this one, i have 2 packages left before it’s all gone…forever. These last couple of packages that i have are courtesy of the lovely joonsusanna who brightened my day by sending them to me. Today felt like a day to have one. I needed a pick me up and this is doing the trick!

Cup from this morning – i vastly prefer little red cup’s keemun that they no longer carry but this one isn’t bad. it’s just not great, and there are a bunch of other teas out there, that i think i’d have first.

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.
