mmmm thanks for sharing this one terri! I think that i’ll have to look into placing an order with yunnan sourcing in the new year. I’ve enjoyed the few that terri has shared with me so i think a few more samples are likely in order :)

Now that my Yunnan Sourcing order finally came (from sept 30th), I have more of their black teas to share with you & TB. :)

sipdown on this one. 1 out of 3 for the first month of verdant’s blend club is ok i guess. Not a fan of this, though i do like it more than the norther wild one. I tried this one cold to see how that fares and sadly it a whole lot of star anise, which i don’t mind in moderation but it’s overpowering even the mint in the cold brew heh.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

sipdown! not that i’ve finished all of this, but i’m going to pass some along to the lovely dexter since she’s been good about sharing a number of teas with me. This is an interesting tea for sure terri! I’ve enjoyed trying it out!

drank Qu Hao Silk by The Tea Spot
5360 tasting notes

terri sent a bit more of this my way and i drank it today. Final verdict? It’s not the tea for me. there’s a bitterness to this that i don’t like even though the aroma is pleasant enough. oh well, just another one that i don’t need to keep on my list!

drank Blackberry Custard by Trail Lodge Tea
5360 tasting notes

sipdown on this one! This is the last of the tes for this morning as i need to go out and run some errands…more to come when i get back though as i have a few things on my list i want to drink up today if time allows and i’m in the mood :) I am a fan of this one…it’s creamy and fruity. I think i need to give terri an excuse to pick up a few more from this company so i can try some more and maybe make a small purchase haha

Terri HarpLady

Here’s her page:
http://www.traillodgetea.com/category_s/63.htm
Look around & see what you’d like to try. She still has more of the Blackberry Custard. I usually look for her at the farmer’s market, where I can buy small samples. Otherwise, the package is 2 or 4 oz. Most of her flavored teas have little candies in them, which grosses me out, so I haven’t tried a lot of them. But I did enjoy this one, & I still have plenty of the black raspberry, BTW. Let me know if you want some more of that. Here’s another local company: http://www.traveling-tea.com/
They are minutes from my house, so if you see anything in their list you want to try, I can get the smaller sizes.

Josie Jade

Terri, is this shop located in St. Louis?

Terri HarpLady

Josie, both of these are located here. I’m not sure where Trail Lodge is…the Fenton area I think. She has a booth at the various farmer’s markets around town. Traveling tea is literally 3 minutes from my house.

Josie Jade

Oh wow! I will have to remember these for the next time that I am in St. Louis. :)

drank Milky Oolong by T2
5360 tasting notes

another tea from Alice and i’m glad our sentiments are of the same mind. I am not overly a fan of green oolongs, but i continue to try them to see if there are any that will change my mind. I have tried a large number of milky oolongs, with Mandala being one of my favourites.
This though? it’s different from most milky oolongs. Alice’s notes indicate that it’s flavoured so I’m going to hazard a guess that’s why. all milky oolongs i’ve had previously were unflavoured. over all this isn’t bad, but there’s a little too much in the way of “green oolong” and not enough delicious creamy milky oolong for me to really get behind it. I’ll likely have another cup of this and share the rest with one of the tea girls who prefers green teas :)

alice

I quite like green oolongs too but this really wasn’t my cup of tea. Apparently it is one of T2’s most popular oolongs which I find kind of surprising.

this tea is growing on me. I am quite digging the smokey notes of this, though i do prefer it with a little maple syrup. It’s not in your face or imposing but it does have a smoothness to it that i like. I’ve got to get my butt in gear and get some running around done so this is doing the trick of waking me up!

Terri HarpLady

I really really liked this one, & I still have a little of it in my TOMCR box. I need to drink that!

Sil

i still have a bunch…i’m really behind in drinking all my reserve club teas

Terri HarpLady

I resemble that remark!
I’m trying to drink one a day, either from reserve or the classic, since I have both. I figure that way I can work my way through them, gradually. This one was actually one of my favorites.

thank you dexter for sharing this one with me. While this tea is on the sweet side, it’s also on the wimpy side. the flavours aren’t super strong, and there’s a bit of astringency to it that leaves my mouth a little dry. Not a bad tea, but there are for sure others that i’d prefer over this one most days.

Tonight, I am digging this one a little more than the. Orange cream. I’m still a fan of both over lemon chiffon though :)

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.
