drank White Christmas by 52teas

someday i WILL get to the bottom of this package. I don’t hate it per say but i always feel like it should be something more. I’m hoping to have this finished by the time christmas rolls around since i’ve had this one for a bit…though not SUPER long in the grand scheme of some people’s cupboards haha

I haven’t tried any of mine, and I got a large amount from the swap. Hoping I like it even a little.

drank Chocolate Orange by Bayswater Tea Co.

Yeah i like this one…as long as you don’t over steep it. Unlike other rooibos teas that i usually brew for a billion minutes, better off treating this one as not really a rooibos. It does better for me at about 3-4 minutes.

Preparation
3 min, 45 sec

drank Caramel by American Tea Room

I’m going to have to try this one again. Today though, i remember being less than impressed given that brioche is my other happy place with american tea room.

i just ordered a sample of this one, just to hit free shipping—it was never high on my priority list ‘cause i assume i’ll feel the same way you do, why bother when you’ve got brioche—but i’m running out of things to try for the first time from them, ha.

sooo crappy tasting notes but here they are nonetheless… this is much as expected, an early grey that is grapefruity, but still an EG. Cavo, if you want the last little bit of mine, it’s yours now that i’ve happily been able to try it! :) not too bad as far as EG’s go in my world..

drank Silver Buds Yabao by Verdant Tea

Shorter tasting notes now since raritea is here but I’ll edit these later. :) long story short? Most white teas bore me to death….

CHAroma

Isn’t this a puerh?

Sil

Yeah…but I still think of it as a white tea…white puerh….

Cavocorax

It seems very light like a white. So confusing.
I can’t get any flavour of it though – hope Courtney has better luck with the last of mine!

Cavocorax

Rarirtea is there, eh? So, did more teas show up for you? Are you above 330 yet?

Terri HarpLady

AND WE WANT PHOTOS!! :D

Sil

oh… um oopsy.. we forgot about pictures..AGAIN terri… heh it was more gaming and tea drinking since Kittenna’s other half came too. We played games from like 1pm until 10pm. was a lot of fun. I dunno how much of a mess my cuboard is yet…too tired to add the rest of the teas that showed up yet.. sigh but lots of old stuff is gone from my cupboard now! officially have teas only as old as january now!

drank Kamairicha "Gokase" by Lupicia

a green tea, really not for me. Into the swap box it goes for anyone who wants to try it.

sipdown on this one – aka into the swap box. there’s too much of a floral sort of background note to this one for me to really get into it. moral of the story? lupicia bags, even when split = too much tea in the varieties i don’t like haha

Cavocorax

LOL. I love the name of this.

Sil

yeah…we’re apparently both too lazy to put in the proper name

Cavocorax

Well some of those names are pretty ridiculously long!

drank Ceylon Osmanthus by Kally Tea

Finishing up this tea – the rest of it is going in to the swap box. I’m done with drinking teas that i don’t love! Not that this is a bad tea, but there are so many others that i’d rather spend my time drinking :) Plus i happen to know a few other people in the area that enjoyed this more than i did :)

drank Classic Christmas Blend by House of Tea

this tastes much less delicious than it first did. It appears that my tastebuds have moved on since i first had it. Dropping the rating as this is much as TEB described it – cinnamon water, with a dash of orange. booo

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.
