drank Lemon Tart by Pekoe Tea Lounge
6407 tasting notes

Another one i forgot to review and log before vacation and now it’s a sipdown! this is another tea from missB and while i like it on the whole, better than the chocolate truffle, i want this to be just a bit more lemony and a lot more tarty. This is more of a lemon black to me as it seems to be missing that je ne sais quois that would = tartilicious! that being said, it’s still a tasty cup and i’m happy to have tried it! Thanks MissB!

drank Chocolate Truffle by Pekoe Tea Lounge
6407 tasting notes

Apparently i forgot to log a few teas before i left for vacation. I had this then, and now that i’m back it’s a sipdown. For the most part this is an average sort of chocolate tea. I don’t get the rich decadent chocolate that i expect when something is a truffle. It’s not a bad cup of tea but i want MOAR decadence….not this wimpy chocolate :) Thanks for sharing missb!

drank Ginger Lime by Bayswater Tea Co.
6407 tasting notes

always on the search for more ginger teas – especially non caffinated ones, i picked this up while at bayswater. I was originally going to get the ginger pineapple, but when i smelled this one, i knew it was the way to go. This is like lime gelato from david’s tea but less sugar and more spicy kick! Again, i could handle more ginger but on the whole, this is a really tasty one. it’s got just enough ginger to satisfy me and accompanies the lime really nicely. So glad i opted for this one over the pineapple since i think that wouldn’t have been as nice.

Courtney

I smelled this one and ended up passing, just because I had too many.

OMGsrsly

I’m adding teas to my shopping list, even though I am not allowed to go tea shopping for many many months at this point. :)

Courtney

I went a little crazy, but those are the only two shops i’m going to. 12 new teas and $80 down. Eep. OMGsrsly, I noticed Pekoe Tea en route to Bayswater – have you been?

Sil

MissB has gone to Pekoe tea – she sent me a few. Of the ones i’ve tried, i’d be more inclined to do bayswater. Only 12 teas…sheesh…try harder! :)

Sil

omg – happy to send you some as well to try. I still have the bolder breakfast set aside for you too

OMGsrsly

Courtney, Pekoe carries Steeps teas, and some from other suppliers. They measure into tins. Some are good, some are terrible, and the service really depends on the staff as it is more of a cafe.

OMGsrsly

Sil… :P

I’m too overwhelmed with life right now to deal with more teas. :) I haven’t had any today again… I made more coffee this morning.

Sil

OMG…next time you’re at steam tell him your vacationing friends were sad they got no samples and had to get 100g….

Courtney

Gah, I know 100g was so much! For Maple Seduction it’s fine, but I didn’t really want 100 of the other two haha. Good to know about Pekoe too.

Try harder :P I’m not up in the hundreds of teas like you Sil, and I need to keep it that way haha!

Sil

courtney..i could change all that for you bwahahaha

Sil

..also i’m LESS than 100 from where you’re at…totally not bad :P

Courtney

Good job! Hehe, I have zero cupboard space as it is, and my teas have now taken up another drawer. I think the issue is, all the teas in my Steepster cupboard are actually decent amount.

OMGsrsly

I totally will, Sil! That sucks so much.

drank Maple Taffy by Bayswater Tea Co.
6407 tasting notes

I picked this up on my travels this past week and since courtney was stepping in to bayswater she had me go try this and report back to her lol. Not that she likely wouldn’t have bought it anyway after smelling it because this one smells DEEELICIOUS! but i was happy to report back that this one is quite tasty! There is cinnamon in this, and what appears to be popcorn. That being said, this is clearly a maple tea. But it’s maple+ lol Not sure how else to describe it really. I’m not sure if i’d call this taffy but it’s maple yum. and that’s good enough for me today!

Courtney

SO excited to try this one!

drank Chocolate & Strawberry Puer by Lupicia
6407 tasting notes

mmm delicious, delicious latte to finish off my last cup of this. Going on my wish list for the next lupicia order for sure. I love this as a latte :)

Ysaurella

chocolate and strawberry…sounds a weird mix to me but it seems to be nice regarding your experience :)

Sil

really? chocolate covered strawberries are my favourite!

CelebriTEA

My favorite are white chocolate covered strawberries

Ysaurella

I put chantilly on my strawberries :)

Sil

oh yum… lol

Cavocorax

I’m getting a tin of this!

drank Chai - Vanilla by The Tea Place
6407 tasting notes

eep! Sorry MissB this is not one for me. I tried brewing this in milk today to see if i could get rid of the weird bitterness that i wasn’t a fan of when brewed in water – it didn’t help enough. For sure the taste was improved but the spices are just the wrong ratio/blend for me. Glad to have tried it though!

MissB

My thoughts exactly on this one. Had hoped someone else could do it justice!

Sil

haha well at least we both tried!

drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
6407 tasting notes

farwell chocolate mint found at target for super cheap! While this one was enjoyable while i had it, it wasn’t knock your socks off sort of chocolate mint. I vastly prefer stacy’s peppermint patty even though it’s a herbal.

sherapop

They sell Harney & Sons at Target? Who knew??? ;-)

Suziqzer

I haven’t seen any Harney & Son’s at ours yet… but you know I’ll keep looking for it! One of our local groceries just picked up a couple of loose leaf Tiesta Tea blends… so hopefully it’s a change in that direction for the other stores as well!

drank Paris Ginza by Mariage Frères
6407 tasting notes

mmm another sipdown from this morning. Thank you again charlotteZero for sending this my way. I’m not sure i’d have picked this up myself ever given the generic “red fruit” in the description which i’ve come to not enjoy, but this, this is delightful. I’ve really enjoyed drinking this one so i’m super glad you sent it along for me to try. Thanks again!

drank Royal Blend by Fortnum & Mason
6407 tasting notes

well now that i’m almost organised for tomorrow, i figure i should log a few of the teas i’ve had this morning. I left for vancouver with 139 teas in my cupboard and came back to a cupboard of 158 (with one incoming swap).

This is a sipdown, since i need to work in a few of those to justify my 20 tea purchase! (oh and a few teas are living with Cavo at the moment…so technically i’m a bit higher).

I thoroughly enjoyed this one from F&M – better than the queen Anne, but nothing to hold in my cupboard forever and ever. This is a good every day sort of tea that is good for those times when you don’t really want to think about the tea you’re drinking, you just want to enjoy it while you do things :)

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.
