Since i’m at home today and didn’t have enough to have a full travel mug with the last of this, i drank it today! Love this tea, and it might be the only tea that i will always dd a little sweetener to, since that REALLY makes it come alive. sans sugar, it’s just not as amazing. That being said, now that this one is out of my cupboard, i miiiight just need to place a small order in september to pick this and the butterscotch one up :)

I really like this tea with a bit of honey. Without the honey, the lemon is a little tart and hard to take. With the honey, it softens in to a really deliciously sweet, refreshing, lemon tea. Not sure if i’d restock it again but i wouldn’t turn away a cup.

sweet potatoes and bread and..honey? Thanks for sending this one my way dexter While it’s a lovely tea, I prefer the way the eldergrove blend tastes. This was one that i would have picked up, so i’m happy to be able to cross it off my list, though it IS tasty. Keep up the great work brendan! :)

I tried to have this one today but ended up largely distracted with work. Thankfully i have another packet to try again with due to Angel’s generousity. Initial feelings on this one is that it’s more vegetal than earthy. Overall it’s was a nice tea, but i really need to pay attention next time :)

Another generous sample from Angel that i’m enjoying today in an effort to get more teas closer to sipdown category :) I wasn’t sure whether i’d like this one or not, given my dislike of “rose” as a general flavour in teas. Turns out that this one is pretty tasty. The chamomile balances out the rose sufficiently for me (though maybe that’s because i picked all the really big flower chunks out of my cup before brewing…) Not sure if i’d restock this one, but i am enjoying this quite a bit. It’s a lovely evening tea for relaxing…

Apparently i tried this two years ago. I’m happy to say i had the same reaction now as i did then. TOO MUCH JASMINE lol Sorry folks, as a hater of jasmine, this tea is just too much for me. heh

TeaBrat

I know the feeling, I recall their jasmine pearl is a bit more subdued

Sil

heh yeah… jasmine has to be REALLY subtle for me to get behind it. it’s like drinking potpurri otherwise for me lol

TeaBrat

it can be overwhelming, I agree

Dinosara

No, all of the jasmine!! :D

Thank you again to Angel for the sample! I picked this one today, mostly just for a break from black teas. I don’t like drinking my greens and whites unless i happen to be in the house. Sadly, this one feel short with me – there are other white teas that i’ve had from Angel that i much prefer. For me, this was closer to “water” than a lightly flavoured white tea. :( oh well, you can’t win them all, and i didn’t hate it – just not a tea for me :)

mmmm thanks for sharing this with me Dexter I am a fan of this one. it has a similar profile to some of the TTC teas that i’ve had, but there’s an under current to this one that makes it a little heavier, and perhaps more to my liking? though i’d need to do a side by side to really figure that out. This is sweet and fruity and dark and twisty. love it! thanks dexter!

another one from this morning – splash of maple syrup to round off the deliciousness of this cup. This one is slightly smokier than the verdant smoke tea that i have, but both are delicious to me. :)

behind in my tea logging today – having a work from home day so that i can be productive and catch up on a few things before round two of travelling next week. eep. I am a fan of this one, so i’m glad that i picked up another sample with my new tea pot! :) I don’t want to fully stock another large amount of this one, so it may just be samples here and there when the mood strikes

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.
