I haven’t picked this one up in a while, even though it was my favourite chai for a while. Once the formulation changed and goji berries were added…i was just confused. I picked some of this up in my last order and had it today. I still quite enjoy this one, but i AM tempted to pick all the stupid goji berries out. i don’t feel they add to the taste and their bright red blotches in my cup annoy me haha

so funny to me still how the different harvest have made this one rise above zhu rong…they pretty much flipped for me with the recent harvests. I know it’s not something that easy to control, but i wish we had the old harvests back…from about 2 yrs ago.

i think i’m officially done with this one. I don’t dislike it, but i’m just not a super fan of it anymore. without the oolong i might be more inclined, but also LB has been a lot more earthy/less chocolatey over the past year and half as well, which might have something to do with it..

The oolong got to me after a while in this one.

I forgot to have more tea this evening – i’m just tooooo tired. Tea in the mail i haven’t added to my cupboard but this tea was my last tea for the day and at least for today i’m sitting at 74. Tomorrow, i’ll be a little higher but i’m still in a good position to end the month at 75 once my last order arrives. of course that assumes that i’m not about to be innundated by surprise teas from friends lol

OMGsrsly

I think you mean “80 bajillion teas” in the mail. Not just “tea”. :D

pulled this one out today to revist an old friend. Still love this delicious tea. Just a reliable cup of tea + some maple = happy day!

Those are the best kind of teas some days. :)

so what’s really terrible is that I have been overwhelmed lately with trying to get the house in order so that it’s one lest thing to worry about next year in addition to wedding planning, and my mother cale up this weekend to go dress shopping…etc…etc.. so i had this sample probably 4 days ago…and didn’t get a chance to log it…and my notes have disappeared from the office. SOOOOOO all i can remember was that this was a very light brew…and refreshing. Something i’d be willing to pick up again…if nothing else just to be able to write a proper note on it lesigh

Wish I could help you, Sil!

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.
