I had a cu of this before passing the rest off to a tea friend who wants to try the two teas we have all blended, separately. (this + creme brulee). I actually think i could live without the creme brulee tea and just keep this one on hand, though i do love the taste of the two blended. Perfect cup to get my going out of the house. Costco/the mall today before the holiday tomorrow. It’ll be insane and i’ll hate it but it need to be done.


I feel the same way about this one and Creme Brulee. Some day I will have to get more of this one!

drank Vanilla Cookie by Blue Teapot

ok, it’s decided. I’m over this tea. The first cup i had was really great and then subsequent cups have been truly “meh” I’m not sure if it’s because the flavouring changed really quickly or what. At least i tried it though. Passing this on to a random steesterite for them to try and then pass along if they don’t like it haha. SOMEONE probably needs to pick up all the teas at my place…. just saying haha

drank Yunnan Golden Bud by Life In Teacup

terri gave me a sample of this one. While it’s a nice cup of tea, it’s a little too…juicy? for me? there’s a sweetness that’s got some other note behind it in this cup that i can’t get on board with. i don’t dislike it, but i wouldn’t go out of my way to find this one again.

Nicole sent this one to me, and i figured what better way to kick off a sunday on a long weekend than with two different yunnans and an everything bagel with cream cheese :) I love this one. It’s rich and smooth with just a hint of maltiness. I am a fan! thanks again nicole!


Everything bagel with cream cheese goes with, well, everything. :)


Nicole and you may convince me to give another chance to Palais des thés so ! I am generally not very fond of their blends but because of that didn’t try their straight teas.

I had this as a latte last night – only about one more cup worth left in the bag! it really is a great blend for me, especially in the fall/winter months. I like it as both a tea and a latte – thank you again for showing me this one omgsrsly

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA

I had a cup of this last night after we made pumpkin scones and watched some tv. It was a really nice end to a really productive day. We’re trying to get the rest of the house in order since i haven’t been around to help clean/organise things and we still haven’t got our art up on the wall from moving. so time to get through the last of those little things! I don’t know that i’ll pick up any more of this again, but i enjoyed the small sample amount that i went though :)

enjoyed a cup of this tonight, but bumping down the rating a little because it’s not as delicious and wonderful as i found it the first time. Luckily, i rarely make large purchases from david’s tea so i don’t have lot of this to drink and will enjoy it while i have it :)

roswell strange sent this along as a surprise halloween treat and it was awesome! Love the halloween card and the surprise, because well surprise tea is ALWAYS awesome. This tea falls a little flat for me. Maybe it’s the base, but it’s kind of like an almost pumpkin spice sort of tea but then it gets lost along the way. However, it was still a decent enough cup, and it’s tea from a friend and one i haven’t tried before so YAY! :) thanks so much RS!

Nicole sent this one for me to try and i’m glad for it, since I am a fan of trying Norbu teas. Their min quantities are 100g, so it’s hard to get a sense of what i’d like before buying. Thankfully i do have steepster friends willing to split orders or, in the case of nicole (and others!) send samples to me.

This is a very light, refreshing tea. The mint in this isn’t overpowering and blends nicely with the darjeeling. There are under notes of a nature – reminding me more of a black tea, than a darjeeling (yes i know darjeelings are black..but they’re quasi black imo). i like this quite a bit. Thanks Nicole!

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.
