today has been a no good very bad day. Door into the face on the bus, elbow smashed on my head on the subway, spilled crap on myself, tripped up stairs, bad news on the work front.

So i drank some tea, wished for more…has a pumpkin scone for breakfast and 3 flavours of gelato for lunch. so there.

Did you find this tea very vanillay? Also, I’m sorry the day was so bad—the good news is that it’s just about over, and hopefully you can rest and feel recharged tomorrow morning. Things have a way of feeling so much worse when you haven’t rested.

Sil

this one isn’t bad…but angrboda sent me a vanilla tea that i vastly prefer. But i keep trying them all just in case haha

drank Strawberry Daiquiri Honeybush by 52teas

this is pretty awful. Smells decent but cold brew, hot brew it’s just gross. The strawberry is artificial and the “daquiri” piece of it leaves a not all all like the alcoholic drink gross after taste. Kittenna hope you like this more than me! haha

I’ve been hoarding my sample from tastybrew but now that my order has arrived with my tea mule, i can finally start drinking this one again! I still love this quite a bit (possibly even more than cinnamon swirl…) so that makes me happy since i picked up 2oz of it heh

drank Bukhial - TGFOP by The Tea Emporium

Not too much to say about this one, trying to catch up on my logs from today. I’ve been drinking this one a little more often because it’s one of my older teas but also because it’s a nice cup to start the day with.

drank Chocolate Orange by Bayswater Tea Co.

mmm yes please and thank you! Last cup of the evening because i got distracted trying to plan vacations. This not only smells delicious but it tastes so very good as well. It’s orange and creamy but it’s also chocolate. I’m not a rooibos hater either so this is darn tasty. Thanks to Cavocorax for this one. I’m a fan!

Terri HarpLady

I’m jealous that you & cavo got to hang out! :)

Sil

someday you and i can hang out and then they will all be jealous of us ;)

Terri HarpLady

That’s right! AND we’ll flaunt it! :)

Cavocorax

Sorry you’re not in range to visit, Terri!

And Sil, I’m happy you like this. Keep in mind that I’d probably be up for an order from Bayswater some time in the future!

drank Steamed Asian Pear by Steam Tea House

I’m hoping that i just over steeped this one. It’s got a weird bitter type taste to it that i am NOT a fan of. It smells heavenly! There are some serious grassy notes underlying the flavour as well, rather than blending nicely. I’ll give this one another shot later and pay more close attention to what i’m doing. Thanks to omgsrsly for sending this my way!

drank Mango Watermelon Honeybush by 52teas

Sip down! Finished this off tonight with a cold brew. So delicious! Little sad to see this one go, but also ok with it since winter is coming and my cold brew consumption will start going down. :)

Sip down! Another wonderful sample from Terri! Gradually working through them. I’ve been drinking this one over the course of the later afternoon. Sadly it’s stupid hot in Toronto so my brain has been wandering. I think there are other puerhs that I prefer more than this one, but I don’t dislike this one either. This is one of those puerhs for me that I could drink all the time. It doesn’t feel like I have to pay as much attention to it as others but is still a creamy ish cup of puerh. I can dig it :)

Terri HarpLady

Did I send you some of the Verdant Xingyang golden leaf? THAT’s a tea to really take your time with!

Sil

my cupboard says “nope” haha

Sil

You asked if you’d sent me any….only way I have any idea is by checking my cupboard… It said nope you didn’t :)

Terri HarpLady

Damn, I thought I sent you that one!

Thank you omgsrsly picked this one up via cavocorax today. I decided to try this straight to begin with and then I will be sure to try it with cream or iced as you suggest. This is a pretty tasty treat. I am picking up more almond than maple in the first sips of this, but as it cools, the maple is coming more to the forefront. Nt a bad start to my teas from steam :)

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.
