HGTTB haha i hadn’t read the review of this one before i picked it out of the box to try. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as everyone thinks it is but i also wouldn’t brew this straight up western. It does have a little fishy smell to it but as far as the taste goes, it’s a pretty average cup. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s not toss out worthy either :)

drank Rhubarb + Custard by Bluebird Tea Co.

HGTTB I had the last cup of this one from the box as well. I wanted to revisit this one since it’s been a long while since i’ve had teas from bluebird. Turns out, this is still a tasty cup of tea and still one that i rather enjoy as far as herbals go. Just the right amount of tang and sweet :)

so i don’t mind hibiscus…but in this tea, it for sure contributes to a really sour brew, blueberry but sour blueberries. Initially a really great smelling blueberry tea but in this particular instance, i’d recommend less Hibby, though i generallly don’t mind it the way some folks do. I finished off the last cup of this one as well from the box. yay for single servings. heh

HGTTB i had the last cup of this one a few days ago. It wasn’t bad but i’m also wondering if it was missing some of the ingredients that make up the tea. Always trickey with heavier teas. It wasn’t bad…but it didn’t make me swoon with delight. just a nice cup for the evening!

i have a hard time with a lot of ceylons. This one falls in to that category. For me this is a bitter, astringent cup of meh. :( it’s not a BAD cup of tea, just not one for me!

OMGsrsly

Haha. The tea tasting we went to on Sunday led with a Ceylon. Then Assam, then Chinese blacks. My tongue was SO UNHAPPY.

I’m too lazy to enter this in to the cupboard but i tried out Gloria Jean’s Cherry Vanilla. Sadly, while there was a cherry note there, there wasn’t enough vanilla for me haha. Still a decent cup but nothing i need to go out of my way to find again :)

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.
