drank Mango Watermelon Honeybush by 52teas
4704 tasting notes

Last tea of the evening. I’m having this one tonight because i need to drink more 52 teas to continue that mini goal…AND i don’t want caffeinated teas..AND because i finally got around to splitting this into another bag for Kittenna So it’s all hanging outside of it’s original packaging saying DRINK ME! I also wanted to have this one as a hot brew again in case my preferences have changed. This is growing on me i think. Maybe i just need to brew it longer and then let it sit so it comes down in temperature. IE. Hot brew, then cool. This is still pretty much a watermelon tea, but i’m ok with that since, while i like mango A LOT, i haven’t had any water melon teas that i can remember, if at all.

Kittenna

I can’t wait to try this iced.

drank The Witching Hour by 52teas

Yeah that’s right..i’m calling this a sipdown and moving myself to 200 teas, though i know it will be short lived. Why? Because this is going to live at Indigobloom’s house. Not because i don’t like it, i’m just indifferent…and she has contemplated buying another pouch of this to have more. So she gets to finish the last few cups of this instead of me…because i’m trying this again tonight and i don’t wanna have to drink the rest lol.

drank Darjeeling #1 by thepuriTea
4704 tasting notes

bwahaha SIPDOWN! I had a small cup of this tonight to say farewell since i’m including this in omgsrsly’s package! All i can say is.. not cheating! haha. I do find that this one is one that i’d drink again. I wouldn’t go out of my way to order it, but if i needed something to get to free shipping or some such, this would be one to consider :)

Terri HarpLady

I still have some of this.

drank Dandelion by PureAromaTea
4704 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (202..not that it means anything since any time i get to 200 more tea just happens to arrive…) I received this as a sample from purearoma with my order – it’s not something i ever would have picked up myself and since terri sent me a bunch of random herbs, she’s totally getting the rest of this hahaha!

Also..though it’s kind of a silly “tea” for it to happen with, this is officially the 1000th tea i’ve tasted since joining steepster! go me!

verdict on this one? It smells awful, but it’s not a terribly “tea.” I’m finding it sort of relaxing and one of those teas i want to add a bit of honey to, in order to bring out the sweetness. nothing i’d ever order on my own, but i don’t hate it.

Terri HarpLady

yay!!! Congrats on 1000!
So…is this dandelion herb or roasted dandelion root? I’m guessing it’s the root. Either way, it’s great for your liver. :)

Indigobloom

1000, nice! congrats

Sil

Oh Terri…as if I know the difference lol

PureAromaTea

Congratulations on your 1000th tea! We are glad it was from PureAromaTea.com.

CHAroma

Wow, 1000!!! Huge congratulations! I shall drink a cup of tea in your honor for being awesome. :)

Sil

haha thanks CHAroma :)

drank Pomiscus by Della Terra Teas
4704 tasting notes

hmmmm another tea added for kittenna I figure it’s payment for the tea i’m tasting! I like this one, and initially thought the smell was delicious but now it’s kind of too much lol. Theres a bit of an artificial taste in the background of this one, but it’s not overly so. It’s a pretty pleasant blend on the whole.

drank Strawberry Zest by Della Terra Teas
4704 tasting notes

kittenna if you don’t like this one, i’ll have more please haha! This could be just a little more strawberry like and a little more ginger-y BUT that might just be my inability to have brewed it right the first time. But i like this. It’s fresh and fruity and minty and fun! but not overly minty… yay!

drank Ginger Green by Della Terra
4704 tasting notes

Another tea from Kittenna that i’m sneaking. I added it to Steepster since i figured i should do that with at least ONE of the teas of hers i’m trying to make her life easier. She can then just edit as she sees fit.

Not a huge fan of this one, but i don’t hate it. I wish the ginger was a little more prominent is all. Still a decent enough cup!

Indigobloom

Girl, how does your bladder not burst lol

Sil

You’re all slackers? Lol

Cavocorax

Haha. Or she runs to the bathroom every hour?

Sil

you’d think that..but now. I just have an extra large tank. :) ONlY needs to be emptied 3 times a day

drank Vanilla Bean Black Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
4704 tasting notes

Another of my morning teas today, I really need to compare this to murchies vanilla that I picked up to see how it goes…as well as the vanilla from Silk Road. Still think angrboda has found the best vanilla tea so far, but part of the fun is continuing the quest!

drank Bailin Gongfu Black Tea by Teavivre
4704 tasting notes

Morning tea today, and not much to say about it, besides the fact that it is a most satisfying cup this morning as I didn’t get enough sleep today. I am digging this one and it will likely be a reorder when I get through the last of my package.

Edit: also a sipdown as the rest is off to omgsrsly so that she can help convert her brother! hahaha

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas
4704 tasting notes

Sip down! home stretch to 200 (ignoring the orders that will be coming in soonish) I finished off the last of this as a latte this morning and man, I am sad to see it go. This was perfect for the fall, especially as a latte. I still prefer it to Starbucks PSL. If this is ever reblended, I may need to pick more up.

Indigobloom

Me to, this one was amazing

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.
