Oh man. This smells amazing! Delicious orange and vanilla…even more delicious smelling than Della Terra’s orange cream. Brewed, this is slightly tart but the vanilla flavour is present. I died just a little honey to this one to see how that enhanced the flavour and it was delicious! This would likely be a close tie with Della Terra’s as this is more vanilla-y and closer to “real” orange, while Della Terra’s version is a bit creamier, closer to that creamsicle sweet taste. Both are delicious Nd I’m glad I have a little more of this one to play with :)

Did I get any of this? :O

Sil

Yep. This is one of the super small samples Terri got for us to share. About enough for two normal ppl cups

Mmmm this is an interesting blend. It smells slightly more floral than I’d like in dry form but as this brews it begins to smell exactly like pink lemonade. I tried this one as a hot brew, but I think this would likely truly shine as a cold brew. Overall, not likely something that I’d order on my own but I would drink this and/or share with someone :)

drank Green Apple Tea by Ovation Teas

sipdown! (224) another tea from CHAroma! I’m not sure how old this one is but while it smells delicious, the tea brewed is a rather tasteless. i don’t really taste apple or the tartness i associate with granny smith apples. However, as it was just a sample i’ll hold off rating it until i can try it again :)

CHAroma

I found this one rather lackluster from day one, so I don’t think it’s due to age.

Sil

good to know :)

Sipdown! Finally starting to get organised after being away forever…budget figured out, work emails taken care of and now i can do laundry and clean..and more importantly, back up pictures, and add ALL the tea in my house in to my cupboard so i finally have an accurate picture of how bad it is (and then maybe place a small order…)

I’ve been sipping on this one most of the early afternoon, just enjoying how light and relaxing this one is. This is a tea i could drink every day without getting bored even after multiple steeps!

Terri HarpLady

Hmmm…haven’t tried this one yet I don’t think.

Sil

yours will be in the packaging since mine was in a ziploc lol

Sil

gah..nm i was thinking of something else… disregard the crazy person

Sip down! Still a few hours until my guest goes to the airport so I’m not getting organized very quickly today. I have teas to add to my cupboard and things to sort out in addition to going through work emails, cleaning the house and doing laundry. Blech. On the plus side I managed to fit the new board game we bought into the existing shelves we have…though I may have to buy another shelf if we buy anymore :(

I really enjoy this oolong, after having it again, and going through a few steeps of it this morning, it is one that I would order again. It doesn’t taste like your typical toasty oolong, instead there’s a sweetness here that is not something I’ve tasted often with roasted oolongs. There’s no vegetal “oolongy” Taste to ruins things for me either. This is not an overly bold oolong, but it is a relaxing restful one that has been interesting for me to drink :)

Had a couple delicious cups of this with dinner – staring at the fire, watching the sunset over the lake. Glorious!

QueenOfTarts

This company sounds so interesting to me. I’m not sure how it would taste, but I like the concept!

Sil

Yeah, that’s why tastybrew was awesome enough to send me three to try! :)

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Sip down since I apparently forgot to log when I had this yesterday. Having another cup today after jumping in the lake this afternoon :) while its not super sunny up here, no trip to the cottage is complete without jumping in the lake, even in winter!
Today I’m making this steeped in milk since these spices seem to call out for it. I’m not sure that I’ve ever drink this just as regular tea. We’ve got the fire going so sipping on this, I can almost pretend its a cold fall afternoon….even though its not really. I won’t restock this as I’m not overly a fan of it. This is sort of in with the Della terra version, while not a bad cup of tea, it is something I tire of rather quickly…and the stupid candies annoy me. :)

Fjellrev

I got tired of it rather quickly too, but used to love it at first. It’s those blasted pumpkin candies.

Nxtdoor

Where are you? Our cottage is near Haliburton.

Sil

Haha we’re in Dorset on the lake of bays, so near-ish. :)

Stephanie

We need to start a thread to have people vote for BEST pumpkin tea out there! I’d be curious :)

Sil

Doooo eeeet!

Terri HarpLady

I hate seeing candies, sparkles, & other crap in my tea.

Stephanie

Agreed @ sparkles and candies etc

Cavocorax

Yeah it’s not the best, but it’s sure damn convenient!

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Sip down! Had a couple of cups of this today. I had mostly wanted to try this since I love Stacy’s pineapple oolong and enjoyed teh version i had from lupicia. I wanted to see how another version compares so I picked up a small amount of this one over the weekend. Final verdict? Meh. I much prefer the other two versions…this one has a floral note to it that I don’t like and comes across as a little too artificial tasting, though it does smell heavenly!

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.
