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

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

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!

drank Vanilla Bean Black Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
4710 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

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
4710 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

oh man..possibly the last tea of the evening and another from kittenna. I have a bunch of tea inbound, so i need to make a serious dent in my cupboard but i was damn proud of myself for getting through 15 teas this weekend! I didn’t expect to like this one, as i don’t generally like della terra’s chocolate teas. But this one is pretty decent. I don’t get a lot of the “salted” taste, but then truth be told, salted caramel always tastes like normal caramel to me after 1 sec in my mouth. I kinda of wonder how this would taste as a latte…

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I bet it would be tasty as a latte :)

Cavocorax

I’ll be watching for your update as a latte bc this sounded ok.

Kittenna

I’ll try it that way! I doubt she will be able to… they’re just try me sizes and half of it is going to Janelle :)

Sil

if they don’t get lost in the abyss that is all your tea in my house cough

Kittenna

Hahahaha, I know what I’m expecting :P

Sil

expect the unexpected!

Cavocorax

You could charge us rent /storage in samples? Wait, you already do that!

drank Cotton Candy by Della Terra Teas
4710 tasting notes

Stupid sprinkles. Altogether one I’m sneaking from Kittenna…this one smells like a giant bag of melted sprinkles and not like cotton candy at all. Tis is one that needs to steep for a bit longer since at a shorter steep I could taste that familiar rooibos taste. After steeping it for a little longer this became a better cup, but still doesn’t quite remind me of cotton candy. I think frank did a better job of it with his black tea base. Skill though, a pleasant cup AND is my 995th tea tasted lol

Terri HarpLady

cotton candy….sprinkles….just 2 forms of the same thing: sugar

drank Mojito Italiano by Della Terra Teas
4710 tasting notes

This one smells sooooo delicious! (Another tea I snuck from Kittenna) but the end result is not nearly as tasty as I wish it were. There’s an after taste here that reminds me of soap…I’m sure it’s the coconut. Too bad as this had the potential to be delicious! Thanks Kittenna!

Kittenna

Oh no! Soapy is not good.

Sil

you like coconut though… so you’ll probably like it

Kittenna

Not soapy coconut :(

drank Blueberry Creme by Della Terra Teas
4710 tasting notes

Snuck a small cup of this one from kitenna’s tea. The label says creamy blueberry, but I’m going to assume this is just a name changed tea since its looks the same. This one smells amazing…and man is it a creamy blueberry tea. This one makes me wish it was ice cream I was eating. Pretty darn good, though it won’t replace orange cream for me heh

Kittenna

Whaaaaat, same tea?! Gypped. At least I like it.

Kittenna

Actually, I think it doesn’t have the black tea in it, so you may want to move it to Creamy Blue (and by that I mean create a listing for it, haha).

Sil

meh. it’s logged and i’m not allowed to drink any more :P

Tea Sipper

I just thought of this blend!

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.
