drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia
6407 tasting notes

blech. this is NOT a tea for making iced if you don’t like “oolong” taste. i thought i’d try it out since i was enjoying the mango flavouring and the sorts of reminding flavour of melon. turns out, that just makes it not so much drinkable for me, since i’m not a fan of that green oolong sort of taste. But at least this way i know lol

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I tried this one cold brewed and it is pretty tasty as well! it’s not overly sour, though a little sweetner helps. I wish it had made the chili pepper pop a little more, but on the whole i can see drinking this either way and being happy about it

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

nomity. nom nom. backloggin from yesterday. I didn’t get much drunk up, but the teas that i had in the evening were delicious and the perfect accompaniment to boardgames and pizza lol. I love this one with just a splash of maple syrup. it makes everything delicious and wonderful, if you like a bit of smoke in your tea :)

backlog from yesterday. I really wanted a quiet weekend to get back in my groove and take a look at a few job opportunities but that hasn’t quite happened. Out all day yesterday at friends playing games and because we didn’t get to one of our friends place, we have to head there this afternoon, after a quick costco trip…so no rest for me! since it’ll be back home to work/clean things etc…

this one is still a delicious, delicious time for me though i wish we’d ditch the oolong. it just adds a taste to this that i’m less a fan of that if there was just cocao nibs, rice and LB :)

drank Melon White Tea by Lupicia

another tea from jump62359 and it;s delicious! I can’t honestly say whether i like this one or the melon oolong better. I think they could both have a place in my cupboard because YES MELON PLEASE! lol i’m glad i got to try this one close to the melon oolong though. of course, now i want to place a lupicia order…again. must. resist. lol thank you jump62359!

drank Doke Silver Needle by Butiki Teas

this was another of my morning teas….for some reason i was gravitating to my lighter teas even though first thing in the morning i generally want my black teas. I suspect that’s likely because i’m going to be with my bolder teas for the rest of the day. I love having this tea here and there. I don’t prefer whites and greens to my black teas, but there’s something to be said for having one or two of these unflavoured teas in my cupboard for when i want a cup of delicious, refreshing, spring, happy tea!

sipdown :) i was going to try for 4 today to make tomorrow only be 10 but i don’t think i have enough time before i leave for the day. We’ve got a decent day planned of board games and seeing a couple sets of friends today so long day, and little chance to bring any extra teas outside of my travel mugs. Not sad to see this one go, though it’s lovely. there are just others that i prefer drinking more :)

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.
