Another sipdown today! I also get to pack away a bit of my matcha for a friend so new flavours get to be opened soon! yay! I like this one a bunch. I think the vanilla helps to temper the black currant flavour and make it a bit more enjoyable that the harney and sons version. thanks again for this one terri!

Glad you like it!

sipdown! needed something a little spicy earlier today. Still not a fan of that adagio taste, but it’s not seriously terrible or anything.

thank you terri! I also had this one earlier today and remember finding it to be a rather uinremarkable darjeeling. A little astringent but not overly so. Mostly it’s just a tea that i can drink or not. Still glad to cross another one off my list and it won’t be a pain to finish the rest of this up!

drank Blood Orange Pu-erh by Carytown Teas
4046 tasting notes

Thank you for this one shmiracles! I’m sad to say that i’m working form home today but not intentionally since we had an issue this morning that pretty much meant i had to stay home and work on issues and not take the time to get to work. As a result, my relaxing work from home and drink lots of tea has not been happening. grrrr

I had this one ages ago but it’s been too busy to write about. As a result i’ve lost a lot of what it tastes like so i’ll hold off on rating it. It smells DIVINE! i am totally digging the dry aroma. In terms of the taste, i don’t recall hating anything about it, so i assume it was good but not spectacular enough to make me sit up and take notice either lol. Better tasting note next time i promise! but it was a tasty morning tea!

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
4046 tasting notes

so uh this was supposed to be a tasting note…and on the way to get here i stopped by a conversation on FB and then i had to draw a picture…let me tell you…MS paint is a PITA! anyway i digress… i got to thinking..I dunno how many people remember that whole geocities thing where there were chat rooms you could hang out in and sometimes you had to wait to get into them and what not. wouldn’t that be fun if steepster had one? except then i probably wouldn’t get ANY work done… anyway that was a nice visit down memory lane :)

so this tea? not bad and i’ll certainly enjoy drinking it while i have it but it won’t be a re-order. The caramel is slightly artificial tasting to me and it makes me want my caramel black! Oh! this came by way of Joon through Cavocorax so thank you both! love trying out new teas :)

OMGsrsly

OMG. I still keep in touch with people from Geocities chat. It would be so awesome if Steepster had one, but yeah. I’d never get anything else done. :)

Terri HarpLady

OMG, I was gonna say the same thing.
My favorite chatroom was a long time ago when the internet was still fairly new….uh…I think it was called ’world’s chat’ or something like that. You got to pick an avatar, & it was a virtual space station. LOL, a total waste of time, but fun. Of course, it lagged like crazy :D

Kittenna

Noooooo, I guess I’m not getting rid of this one by giving it to you! It was totally on our swap list…

Sil

lol i can still take it if you want to get rid of it. It’s not a bad tea, just not a re-order.

drank Rooibos Tropica by Teavana
4046 tasting notes

sample sipdown from fiddling! (285) this is a totally uninteresting boring rooibos to me. sure it’s got some fruity aspects going on but over all it’s like that friend you have where they tag along sometimes and you don’t mind seeing them but there’s never any OMG I MISS YOU! WHY HAVEN’T I SEEN YOU IN FOREVER! it’s just kinda like “hey…what’s up…cool beans, yo!”
yeah. that’s my story. lol

Fiddling

I just can’t get into this tea either. I’ve sent it out to a few swap partners hoping someone would enjoy it, but it seems like a bit of a dud.

Sil

Well if nothing else, lots of people will get to sample it :) I don’t mind rooibos but this is just kinda there…hanging out…

drank Kiwi's Big Adventure by DAVIDsTEA
4046 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! Thanks to courtney for sending this my way in our last swap :) I think my favourite thing about some of my swaps is getting to try david’s teas which i just don’t buy for myself 98% of the time. This one intrigued me simply because i haven’t tried many (any?) kiwi flavoured teas. Not sure that i get the full on “kiwi” flavour in this one, and the green base is not entirely really sort of there but this is a nice enough tea. Nothing i’m dying to keep in my cupboard but i’d drink it again from time to time. :) thanks courtney!

Courtney

I just finished this off as well. I’m not amazed by it, I don’t really taste the kiwi everyone else seems too hah.

Sil

with you there…it’s like it could almost be kiwi if i closed my eyes and really thought about it

drank Ginger Peach by The Republic of Tea
4046 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! This is another one terri sent and for which the folks at work stole my remaining teabags of! I saved one to have this evening and i’m glad i did. This is another pretty decent tea bag from republic of tea. What i’ve come to realise is that while there are other companies that do the nice sachets and whose teas are pretty decent, this is the sort of company for which i could easily have a couple tins tucked away at work. This is a pretty nice juicy peach sort of tea. My only complaint is with how light the ginger is. I wish it were just a smidgen more gingery. Still though, not a bad little tea! thanks terri!

Terri HarpLady

It’s especially nice over ice IMO!

sipdown! I had this earlier this afternoon and it was pretty decent for a bagged tea. I actually think this would make a good cocktail type of tea. even a non alcoholic one. Maybe cherry-lemon or something of that nature. Either way, thanks to terri for letting me try this one out!

Bio

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.
