sometimes the days are long…sometimes they’re short. today was a long one. I can pretty much recall nothing about the teas i had this morning besides the fact that they were all excellent picks! Luckily i have more of this one to have another cup or two of.

TERRI! I love this one! Great choice my tea sister! I had this today as my “what new tea am i going to drink to get close to some more sample sizes tea” and it was super delicious. Certainly not what i expected in my tea mug this morning. Plus i love how cute the curls of tea are :) it’s malty and sweet and just downright delicious. I don’t know what else to say because i drank it so long ago, but this is one i’d order again for sure. I think Cavocorax might enjoy this one a bunch too…maybe :)

I might be in love with this as a cold brew. I have a giant pitcher of this in my fridge at the moment and it’s how i fully intend to drink the rest of this up as i love this as a cold brew. I had three glasses of this tonight with dinner and with a splash of lemonade added to it, it’s super perfect.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

soooo delicious. I had this in the morning and it was a fantastic cup of happy for a super busy day in which i was still exausted (am…) from the weekend’s activities. I’ll be sad when this is fully gone from my cupboard.

Ysaurella

awwww I miss this one ! I didn’t rebuy it yet just to be reasonable as I have a lot of chocolate teas…but this one is definitively my fav

SIPDOWN! (208) I’m fast approaching fall over time after being up for way too long but i was still thirsty. So decaf cup of tea it is just to finish something up and still get some tea.

Terri HarpLady

I’m glad you’ll finally get some rest!

Sil

Wish it had helped….still so exhausted.

Terri HarpLady

Do you at least get to work from home today?

drank Té de Frutas by Lupicia
4734 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! So i won’t make it to 205 but at least i can get under 210 this weekend. Not that it will mean much because there is tea on the way! hahaha. This is one of my older teas, so i’m glad to be finishing it all up. I’d pick this up again if i’m ever around a Lupicia store again :)

Terri HarpLady

I still have some of this from the generous sample you sent me : )

Sil

Haha. I never did make it as a cold brew I don’t think heh

SIPDOWN! thanks again to nicole this IS a super fine tea – probably the most fine tea i’ve had without it being matcha. and then…then i sort of um fell asleep for just a little bit. Apparently my body doesn’t care about caffeine. So i drank this a little cold, but it’s still a pretty tasty. This falls into my “every day” sort of tea category. thank you for sharing this with me nicole..sorry my tasting note sucks. but the tea was great!

Nicole

Pft. Sometimes there isn’t much to say other than “every day black” :) You are working your way through my swap faster than I am through yours!

Ysaurella

Sil is a serial drinker, I am impressed with all the teas she manages to drink in a day – Sil are you a kind of superhero like a Kettlegirl or something like this ? a hand is a kettle and the other hand is a cup ??? ;)

Sil

Nicole – that’s because i’m on a mission to sipdown and your teas are perfect for decupboarding :) Plus i like drinking NEW TEAS!

Ysaurella – haha i love this mental image! I don’t drink much except tea, and i’m trying to make sure i keep drinking because for a while there i wasn’t drinking anything for an entire day. :)

Terri HarpLady

That’s an awesome image! If I was any good at coloring, I’d make a picture & send it to your FB, LOL.

drank Himalayan Gold by Capital Teas
4734 tasting notes

sipdown! (211) mmmm another fine tea from nicole I think i accidentally over steeped this a little but i can still get the flavours in this tea. I really like this one, though if i didn’t mess up steeping this, it’s a little stringent for me. or…because it’s a cousin to darjeelinsg, that’s what i’m getting here. What i love about this tea are the under notes happening here. I cant quite place the taste but it’s somehow familiar to me. either that or lack of sleep has made me disfunctional..but at least i’m getting some stuff done..even if it’s as silly as sorting pictures…

Bonnie

Nepali Tea Trader’s has a Himalayan Gold Tea, I wonder if this is the same source. Really good tea.

Bonnie

Oh, you do have to play with the steep times on these teas we found at Happy Luckys, after tasting many Nepalese varieties. It’s not just you.

Sil

good to know Bonnie, especially since i want to order their teas eventually :)

Bio

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.
