I don’t love this as much as the first few times i had this, but it is a fun sort of flavoured puerh blending. While it’s still very cherry, the puerh isn’t lost in the taste and flavour!

sipdown! as with the last time i had this, there’s little point to me drinking this as my tastesbuds just sort of read this as tasty water with a bit of flavour.

drank VIT: Cranberry Ti Kwan Yin by 52teas
4653 tasting notes

So this is coming out of my cupboard. Not because it’s finished but because when you have as many teas as i do, there’s no point in drinking crap you really don’t like. So on to my swap list it goes for anyone who wants to try it. blech not a tea for me.

There are so many awesome teas there’s no point drinking tea you don’t enjoy it!

CHAroma

Oooh, add me to the swap list!

Sil

haha did you want this charoma?

Ysaurella

did you find it bitter ?

Sil

not bitter..just not tasty? It doesn’t taste like cranberry at all to me and the tea base just isn’t that great.

Ysaurella

if it doesn’t taste cranberry it just doesn’t deliver its promesses and sure it’s a pity

CHAroma

I can never turn down a 52teas blend that I haven’t tried. ;) Let me know if there’s anything you’d like in return.

Sil

Send me a PM and i’m sure we can organise a mini swap of sorts for sure :)

drank Black Gold by Mandala Tea
4653 tasting notes

sipdown!

I had this in the morning when steepster was acting up. I prefer this one to the black beauty that mandala offers. The taste here is much smoother and tasty…and sadly that’s all i can remember. Thanks for sending this my way terri! i may pick up some more eventually heh :)

Glad you like it!

drank Lavender Citrus by Tea Forte
4653 tasting notes

sipdown – I’ve been drinking this over the past couple of days. I picked these up at chapters for about 1$ a steeper which makes 24oz. Not bad and certainly better than the regular price which puts them closer to 2.5 a pop.

i started with this one because i figured it out be the one i like the least. I was right about not really enjoying it. It’s drinkable but it’s nothing spectacular and i really don’t like the lavender in it. If there was no lavender it would probably be a pretty decent little tea as the citrus taste is nice

OMGsrsly

I don’t think any of the chapters here has this one, but it’s on my list to try! :) Thanks for the heads up… I think.

Sil

the chapters i picked the box up at had 2 boxes with only 1 flavour in them and the box i got with 5 flavours…so i opted for the sampler to be able to try a bunch of them heh

OMGsrsly

Well, my plan today includes TWO more Chapters, but I should probably get going before it’s too late. :)

drank Caramel Vanilla Assam by Butiki Teas
4653 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! I’m sad to see this go, but it’ll be back. I had a bit more than the recommended amount of tea, but not enough for a second cup so i simply overleafed this one. A pleasant experiment! It made for a slightly more caramel cup of tea.

drank Taurus by Nina's Paris
4653 tasting notes

(240 ‘cause apparently i did toss this one in my cupboard) Another sample from Laurent and one of the ones i’ve been most looking forward too. I love me a good strawberry cream tea (thank you nicole for the additional walter bishop you sent!!!!!!!!!!)

this tea smells divine! holy strawberries batman!this…this is reaaaaallly good. It’s not at all like walter bishop or the other strawberry rooibos blends i’ve had. it’s different. and equally delicious. it’s like a juicy strawberry burst open in my mouth. slightly artificial but not in the strawberry starburst kind of way…just a more like strawberry flavour than fresh strawberries picked from the garden.

this one is really good….i can see this being tasty cold brewed AND with sweetner/milk in it. really nice!

drank Quatre Fruits Rouges by Nina's Paris
4653 tasting notes

after the major influx of teas today i find myself jumping from 211 to 241, not including a couple of samples from nina’s that i’m going to drink right away so they don’t bump up my total. That number will go up on monday, so goal is to try and get through as many of the 1-2 cup samples that nicole sent me as possible this weekend. That way when i place my butiki order i won’t feel so guilty. lol

Soooo welcome to 241. More math to be done on sunday lol

I am enjoying this one from nina’s paris. This sample came in teabag form, which was pretty great to try out. I have a feeling that their tea bags are something i may add a few of to my cupboard for work, once i get around to placing an order. I think this could be a fairly good cold brew at the end of the day.

drank Thé des Songes by Le Palais des Thes
4653 tasting notes

sipdown!(211) Sort of the official last one of the day that counts since i’m about to add all the teas that came in the mail today into my cupboard. At least i ALMOST made it to 200 before the teas came..i would have if they had waited until monday haha.

oh well…half the fun for me is the neverending battle to get my cupboard under control. I like setting goals and having fun trying to get to them lol. Plus this weekend i get to re-organise my cupboard and package up teas to go out to the girls involved with the BBBB…as well as family mail and tea out to nicole! since i found extra of a tea she wanted heh.

Life is good! 3 hours of sleep from last night and i’m still not falling over yet. Dresses to peruse at BR tomorrow and orders to consider!

Thanks to shmiracles for sending this one my way! i’ve enjoyed it but it’s not quite a restock for me. still happy to have been able to enjoy a few cups of this one while i’ve had it.

Terri HarpLady

Yay to lots & lots of TEAS! hahahaha

drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea
4653 tasting notes

I feel like this tea is a different tea from the first time I had this tea. Today I am not enjoying this nearly as much. There’s a strange bitterness here that I don’t like. Hmmmm will need to rethink this one.

Terri HarpLady

I hate when that happens.

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.
