I’m not sure why i always feel compelled to buy this one from time to time. I think it’s because i want the rice. I already do LB + Cacao when i want a treat…but i like the rice. I just dislike the oolong. blech. That being said, this is still a tasty cup..just not nearly my favourite haha this was a fresh bag today so it was especially chocoalatey smelling and just a touch roastier than i remembered heh

i really like how fun this one is. It’s needles and hay and delicious! I’m really happy yo be back with my cupboard even if i’ve let it slide a little and i’m in danger of creeping back up to 100…Hopefully i’ll have some time this weekend to get through a few of my samples.

I’ve been wanting to try this one for an eternity and cookies was kind enough to send a sample my way for me to try. turns out? it’s kinda like most of the other hojicha’s that i’ve tried. Same woodsy sort of taste that i rather enjoy, but certainly lacking any sort of caramel taste that i expected of this. It’s not BAD – like i said, i like hojicha…but i guess i just wanted more! haha thanks cookies!

Final Count: 80 (still not quite at 6 months old cupboard though…) bring it december!

drank Nepal 2nd Flush Sencha by What-Cha

cookies sent this one my way and while i’m not ever going to reach for a green tea over a black, i do enjoying trying things that aren’t my usual go to teas. This one strikes me as sort of an average sencha. It didn’t knock my socks off but it wasn’t bad. I think there are senchas out there i’d prefer more, but this was nice to try at least. thanks cookies!

drank Barley Black by Dragon Tea House

YAY for tea from cookies this was a rather unusual tea from this morning.I’ve been busy organising things and um spending too much money on house things today. I enjoyed this one, though it’s different from other barley teas that i’ve had.

it’s roasty and sweet at the same time. closer to coffee than tea. it reminds me a little of some of the green teas that i’ve had when they’re a bit beany? kinda. overall just a really fun tea to try! thanks cookies!

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.
