drank Christmas Tea Blanc by Dammann Freres

thank you missB Admittedly white and green teas are not often my thing. I find their tastes either beyond me or too vegetal for me to love. I picked this one today because a) it’s a quick sipdown and b) in my sickness i seem to be enjoying the lighter teas.

While i am a fan of this blend, it’s not one that i could drink all the time. This is a cherry tea, with the almond missing for me, but the spices being present in the background. I would enjoy this as an occasional cup in my cupboard for sure. Thanks missb!

Still stick? That’s no fun, especially not for New Year’s Eve.

Sil

meh new years eve is a whole lot of nothing. at most we get together with friends to watch movies and play board games. otherwise it’s stay at home, be comfy and eat lol. new years day was supposed to be a day of gaming with friends we haven’t seen in a while so i’m totally bummed about that

drank Pumpkin Toffee Dragonwell by 52teas

thank you CHAroma! for sending a sample of this my way. Even being sick i risked drinking this one since i have a thing for franks pumpkin flavouring. I quite like this one. Not enough to feel the need to buy a whole bag for myself but it did reinforce that i still love the pumpkin flavouring that he has. Paired with the green base (not usually my preference), it’s got a nice creamy feel to it. Thanks CHAroma!

I hope all this tea you’ve been sampling has been helping you feel better. :)

CHAroma

I thought you’d like it. ;)

sipdown! I had a cup of this today to try and drink up some of the non black teas in my cupboard. the rest of this is also going out to share with tea friends since i am not a fan of greens, but did really enjoy this one. yay for cleaning up teas!

My tea collection is so out of control, so disorganized at the moment. Boxes everywhere, tea crammed in every place. Who knows how long it will take me to get it under control? If ever? :)

Sil

uh… another box coming your way to…should be getting it in the mail by this weekend hahaha

another tea from this morning. not a bad little tea, but not my favourite. i think on the whole, yunnans are not necessarily my favourite cup of tea. Still, a decent enough one to drink :)

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Teavana

my new years day plans have been ruined by being sick. So much for getting to drink tea and play board games with friends all day. Might just need to make it up by “forcing” my other half to play games with me all day. Not nearly as much fun as gaming with more than the two of us but i really don’t want to get anyone else sick.

I had a cup of this in the morning. I’m struggling with working today so i may call it quits sooner rather than later.

My husband claims that when it comes to colds, you’re not particularly contagious when you actually experience symptoms, and you only remain (even slightly) contagious for about three or so days into the cold. So, you know, if you avoid licking your friends’ eyeballs and don’t sneeze on your hands right before you touch the dice, you should be fine. Also I know this doesn’t help at all, and feel better.

caile

Aww Hope you feel better soon!

Sil

yeah, i’ve heard that, but better safe than sorry. one of my friends is pregnant and the other is a school teacher lol

Nicole

I just discovered Carcassone for the iPad and have given up on getting my other half to play with me. :) I hope you feel better soon!

Sil

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH carcasonne! ipad/iphone! yes! yes!

Nicole

Oh… I just realized. We could play Carcassone together, too. :) The internet is such an amazing thing. :)

sad…sad…sad…sipdown. I resteeped the heck out of this one, knowing it was my last go around of this until next year. I have to say that this is without a doubt my favourite pumpkin tea. Thank you so much for sharing Terri!

Terri HarpLady

It’s what we do! :)

drank Peach Tranquility by Teavana

i had a cold brew of this one and i’m thinking my tastebuds may be having issues with this one so i’ll hold off on rating it. The aroma is undeniably peachy but the taste comes across as overly floral. I’m thinking it’s just the sick factor so i’ll try this again once i’m better :) thanks terri!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I prefer this one hot & lightly sweetened.

…aaaand more tea is here. now up to 185 with a few more things on their way from what i understand lol. Oh well. saw a tasting note for this one and it reminded me that i have lots of this. Figured it would be a decent cup for this evening before i pull out the herbal blends to finish the night off. still enjoying this one quite a bit.

Lala

Sil, were you sick today just to stay home to receive your tea? Ha ha, JJ.

Sil

lol naw I can work from home any day, so i don’t have to be sick to do it heh. Weirder still our mail didn’t get here until 6pm. that’s abnormal

Anna

Anna

Sil

Finally got around to trying this one, though it’s a bit silly given that i’m sick. I wanted a vanilla tea though so i pulled this one out. it’s for sure a black tea with a dash of vanilla – the base, as angrboda mentioned is heavily present. I’m ok with that because i like being able to taste the tea bases. :)

drank La Naissance by Fauchon
5592 tasting notes

finally sat down to have some of this, which is decidedly stupid given that i’m sick but whatever! it’ my tea and i can drink it when i want :) This is quite delicious, though i do taste hints of floral notes in the background, making this less enjoyable than some of the recent fauchon teas that i’ve tried. I don’t hate this though and the almond flavouring is delicious! I’ll have to give them one another shot once i’m sure my tastebuds are back to normal heh

Terri HarpLady

Bummer that you’re sick. That’s no way to end the year! If you have any of that elderberry left, drink it! And feel better soon!

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.
