drank Caramele by Lupicia

mmmmm… thank you dinosara I’ve been curious about this tea for a while now and she was kind enough to send some my way.

sheesh..stupid rogers interrupting my tasting note. Long story short, this tea appears to be one that lends itself to really coming together with a little sweetner and maybe some milk. I’ll let you know, since i opted to drink this cup on it’s own. I can sense the caramel in the background…not as present as i wanted it to be but i’ll try with some additions later!

drank Red Tea Classic by Wissotzky Tea
5075 tasting notes

sipdown! this was one from kaylee I opted to try this one since i should probably start drinking a few non caffeinated options now that it’s later in the day. As well, after locating a few teas in my cupboard that were actually gone – i’m super happy to say that i’m now back under where i started the weekend at before dinosara’s swap was added to my cupboard!

I quite like this one…it’s sweet, doesn’t taste overly like rooibos and it’s just a smooth tasting experience. Thanks kaylee!

drank Lemoncello by American Tea Room
5075 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! the rest of this sample is in to the swap box for the girls here to try if they are so inclined the next time they come over. I’ve promised to hold back some of all my american tea room samples so in they go. I opted to try this one as a cold brew, and while it’s not a terrible tea, i’d rather have della terra’s lemon chiffon any day.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

had this again today in an effort to also drink some of my older teas. Today it was overly bitter and not so tasty. Ah well…sipdown!

drank Yunnan by Fortnum & Mason
5075 tasting notes

sipdown! this is a sweet and malty yunnan with a dash of fruity goodness thrown in to the mix. I like this one a lot – in fact many of the teas NofarS was kind enough to send to terri (who graciously saved me some) have been delicious and wonderful. I’m certainly glad to be able to cross them off my list of all the teas! :)

drank Vanilla Bean Black Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
5075 tasting notes

Sipdown! After 2oz of this tea, i’m happy to say it’s a fairly average vanilla black for me. It’s not bad, but it’s not my favourite. I would however, order more if i needed filler in my cart from the steapshoppe.

sipdown. um so yabao is REALLY not my thing. I’ve tried verdant’s and now this version and i can’t get around the taste. I’m sending the last of this off to a friend in the hopes that maybe it will be a tea for her.

Dinosara

Haha I knew I should have saved the reserve yabao that I ended up sending you. Ah well, if you don’t want it, you can set it aside and send it back to me sometime.

Sil

I think that’s the darker yabao…..which. I seem to be ok with….it’s the white I really don’t like. If I’m not a fan, I’ll send it back for sure!

Dinosara

Well I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts!

mmmmm sipdown. Not to much more to add to this one. While i don’t prefer greens – give me a solid black every day, it’s nice to have this one occasionally. Not sorry to see it go though as i have a few other greens in my cupboard that i need to get through as well!

another sipdown for the day….there’s hope of getting back to where i started on friday i think? the aroma of this one is malty and cocoa-ey. drinking this one, it’s your typical roasty, dark oolong. There’s none of that flavour that i dislike from roasty oolongs. I think i’ll enjoy the other steepings of this one as well.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Sipdown! i really like this one! The tea is smooth, with a slight astringency. There’s a gentle citrus flavour. I would happily drink this one again!

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.
