SIPDOWN! I figured i might as well end my sipdowns for the evening with this one, since it marks my 2600th note since i joined steepster 14 months ago. In that time i’ve met some fabulous people and tried 1118 teas…if steepster is to be believed lol.

This one is interesting but not a repurchase for me. i like the sandalwood addition. thanks for sharing this with me cavo!

Calling it quits for the night, eh?
LOL, my odds of catching up are pretty narrow at this point, but I do have until midnight! mwahahaha

Ysaurella

congrats on the 2600th notes…serial drinker
You forgot to say how many teas you bought since you joined Steeper…I am afraid to count for myself !

Terri HarpLady

OMG, right Ysaurella! I know we’ve all become compulsive tea buyers since we joined this place! There are just too many teas!

Sipdown! Another tea from tastybrew. I like this one less than the other. I don’t really get the whole caramel macchiato flavour. It’s an “ok” tea, but I’d rather have the other one, an did rather just drink the actual coffee beverage over that one. Still though, happy to have tried it :)

drank The Liberator by Java Tea Co

Sipdown! Lol I’m like an addict who just can’t stop….plus I’m soooooooooo bored. I’m about to crack open my box set of Roald Dahl books to see how many of them i can read tonight since I’ve watched a lot of TV.

Trying this one again, I think I’ve landed on being ok with this brew, though I’d rather just drink coffee. The flavour isn’t bad, but for something like this, I’d really rather just have that delicious coffee flavour…coffee…chocolate……mmmmm

Thanks for sharing though tastybrew! I was super curious about these ones!

gmathis

Roald Dahl…loved reading him with my son. Just thinking about The BFG makes me smile.

Sil

yeah…box set was on sale at costco…so i got them. there are a few i haven’t read, so looking forward to them!

yyz

Which is your favourite, I think I read Charley and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach before I abandoned kid’s lit and yes if I am honest I was stuck up about it… Then on the other hand my mother introduced me to Jean
Auel’s books when I became interested in prehistory before I was in grade 3.

Sil

Oh…. I loved the twits and witches…Matilda. I go back and read kids books all the time. Loved jean auel books too!

SIPDOWN! 221 and i am 98% water for sure at this point. i REAAAAAALLLYY wanted to get to 217 today but i’m not sure i can do it. It’s getting late and i should probably stop drinking fluids lol

There are some silver needles that i quite like, and there are others that are pretty much water. This is one of the former – it’s a delicious juicy white tea.

drank Casablanca by Alice's Tea Cup
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! thank you kaylee! suprisingly enough…i REALLY like this. Contrary to my usual dislike of earl grey’s i am enjoying this! The mint isn’t overly present, but it tempers the bergamot and makes this a really nice cup. also..it’s GREEEEEEEEENNN! lol

Terri HarpLady

Sil

LMAO i haven’t even finished writing my tasting note!!

drank Chocolate Orange by Bayswater Tea Co.
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! this was a cold brew since i wanted to try and see how it fared as a cold brew. Although this isn’t a bad brew, i MUCH prefer this hot brewed, since as a cold brew i kept expecting it to be orange cream, not chocolate orange. :) Thanks again for this cavo…i like it :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

SIPDOWN! After waking up the sick, snoring man and feeding him, I figured it was time to get back to a few more teas before i reached my limit for today…i’m starting to feel a bit sloshy but i think the food will help me too haha. All in all, not sad to see this go but i enjoyed it while i had it. whee!

drank Piccadilly Blend by Fortnum & Mason
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! so um…maybe i don’t like ceylon? lol I couldn’t drink this one and i had been super careful to steep it for less than my usual amount of time. It was just TOOOOO brisk, even for me. Ah well, you can’t win ’em all…but you CAN win the SIPOFF! cough well ONE of us can….

where you at terri? lol

Ysaurella

is this from a mini serie of 6 boxes from F&M ?

Sil

I’m not sure. NofarS sent it to terri who sent some to me :(

drank Choco*Late by American Tea Room
5059 tasting notes

this smells divine! I haven’t had the cacao tea from herbal infusions in a long time but i think this is very similar. I’m at 226 now but i wanted a delicious non caffeinated tea so i thought i’d try this one. Terri is mia, and i’m sure she’ll come out of nowhere and show me like 12 sipdowns lol

I’d like to do a comparison of this one and the one from herbal infusions to see which i like better, but i am really digging the delicious chocolatey taste of this. It’s a little watery but still flavourful..i think that’s largely because i keep expecting this to be hot chocolate lol

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec
Terri HarpLady

Woman, you sure have managed to put away a ton of teas today!!

drank Macaroon by American Tea Room
5059 tasting notes

sipdown! this was a free sample with my american tea room order and not something i would have chosen for myself given that i strongly dislike coconut in 90% of all teas.

I can’t rate this tea, because i could barely drink it. the coconut smell was too overpowering, so i managed a sip before having to give up. What i will say, is that this DOES taste like macaroons. If that’s your thing, it’s worth trying out :)

QueenOfTarts

I hate it when coconut is too strong.. I’ve never gotten a free sample from ATR with my order… Lucky you!

Sil

Really? I thought that was standard with them….how weird heh

Terri HarpLady

I love Macaroons!

Sil

Oh god really? Do you want me to send this to you? I dropped the last little bit in the box for the girls here but if you actually WANT to try a flavoured tea, it’s all yours lol

Terri HarpLady

eh, it’s probably artificial flavoring?
If it’s not artificial, I’d love it

American Tea Room

Queen of Tarts – every order comes with a free sample. Please contact us directly with your order and we can rectify that! tea@americantearoom

American Tea Room

Terri- there is nothing artificial in ANY of our teas.

Terri HarpLady

Glad to hear that!

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.
