drank Lychee by Lupicia
4738 tasting notes

Sipdown! Not a fan of this one. I prefer the limited edition blend lupicia pulled together that tastes like lychee. that one is delicious and juicy. this one? it’s just not a good time. I’m not a fan of the base and the flavouring seems off.

This one smells interesting. I wasn’t sure how big a fan of it i’d be. i think i need to have this again before i decide on a final rating. there’s almost too much going on here. at least though, the tea comes through well enough.

drank Key Lime Pie by Della Terra Teas

I dropped the temperature on this one and it’s better. I think i’ll try this next as a cold brew. It’s got a creamy lime taste to it, but there’s still a bitterness to it that i don’t like.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec

drank Mango by The Boston Tea Company

teabag sipdown! (214) another one from the lovely CHAroma! This is actually a pretty darn tasty teabag :) I wish i had another bag to try this as a cold brew since hot it’s got a particularly decent mango flavour without having to be a herbal/fruit blend.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Success! Glad you enjoyed it!

drank Earl Grey by The Boston Tea Company

teabag sidpdown! no. just no. so while there are few people out there who think that i’m gradually going to cover over to the dark side and find love and happiness in an early grey – this is a tea to remind me of why i hate earl greys lol Thanks for the taste CHAroma! While i dislike this a lot (floral much?!?) i still am happy to cross another one off my list :)

CHAroma

Oops, LOL! Sorry I gave you one that you hate.

Haha no way! It’s good to know where my limits are with EG’s. even if I’d hated every single tea you sent, which I didn’t, it still would be a success to me. I love sharing tea and finding out what I like and don’t like :)

drank Darjeeling #1 by thepuriTea

Another Darjeeling for the day, though it’s not really helping with my sipdowns :) This is another tasty cup, brought to me by my lovely tea sister Terriharplady! One of the many joint purchases we’ve made together :)

This is closer to a black tea that i expect from darjeelings. It’s got a little boldness, a side of sweetness and a dash of delicious! :)

I need to drink up some of my Darjeelings too. Maybe I’ll have a cup now, LOL.

This darjeeling is a sweet, fresh tasting darjeeling. It tastes less like a “black” than it does a green/white tea, which i normally wouldn’t enjoy but with this tea, i do. The aroma of this one is sweet. Even the taste of this one is a sweeter kinda of taste.

teabag sipdown! This is a decent average tea bag black. It’s not as bold as i’d like it to be, but for a “to go” tea bag, it would be a pretty good teabag. Thank you CHAroma!

teabag sipdown! CHAroma sent this to me in our swap. I have to say that this one is pretty good :) I’m a fan of the pomegranate taste in this one as well as the base. Thanks CHAroma!

drank Darjeeling The Second Flush by Lupicia
4738 tasting notes

I’ve had this in my cupboard for a while as I had some bad experiences with darjeelings that put me off of trying this. Turns out? Tis one isn’t so bad. I’m not sure if its the fact that its second flush but its got a toasty feeling to it, though it does leave a dryness in my mouth that I’m not a huge fan of. Still though, I really should drink this mor often as its pretty good :)

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.
