dropping the rating on this a little as it doesn’t hold up well in terms of the flavour. Either that or my taste buds have radically changed :) it’s still a decent cup of tea but i’m glad that it’s finally finished up so i can move on to other things!

mmmm finished up the last of this today. I think i might like creamy eggnog a bit more than this in terms of the blending of the cream + ingredients but this IS still one of the few flavoured greens that i love and will continue to keep picking up when the mood strikes!

Fjellrev

Love this one too. Unrelated, but do you find Creamy Eggnog and Birthday Cake similar like many others do?

Sil

i do… but i also didn’t like birthday cake..there was a weirdness to it that wasn’t to my liking

keychange

Wait this is a white right? or did stacy make a green version of c and c?

Roswell Strange

This is a white…

Fjellrev

Reeeeally, that’s interesting because I didn’t like Birthday Cake either (hello, edamame beans?) so I keep passing up on Creamy Eggnog assuming they’d be the same for me.

Sil

Sorry for the confusion…yes it’s a white..I kinda lump whites and greens in the same bucket lol

I can send you some creamy eggnog later for you to try. It’s…mouthier? Than birthday cake….more of a depth to it or something….

Fjellrev

Nah, don’t worry about it! I can just throw in the smallest size in my next order. I’m sure I can easily get through it.

keychange

Haha at lumping whites and greens together. I imagine you mean in terms of not typically drinking them but liking a select few. I feel similarly.

Amariel

My first Butiki love…

mmmmm i like this tea a bunch, though i’ve found picking the flowers out makes it a more enjoyable cup. It’s not that it’s a floral tea persay, but something about the blossoms adds just a little of something i dont enjoy AS much. Over all though, this is a lovely tea and i’m glad winners had it when they had their fauchon teas. I did swing by the other day and their shelves were nearly BARE of coffee and tea…so i’m hoping that means more will be coming in soon….i hope lol

Stephanie

Dang I love this one so much…

Terri HarpLady

This is in the BBBB, right? I need to pull it out & give it a try

Sil

uh… 98% certain i sent this along for you to try “fancy french teas” at christmas

Terri HarpLady

OH…maybe I already drank it then, hahaha

Terri HarpLady

nope, just checked, I’ve never reviewed it, but I AM pretty sure I have a bag of it, so I guess I’d better get on it!

Sil

i have enough to send you another small bit if you didn’t get any

Terri HarpLady

I just looked, & it IS in the BBBB! So I got plenty! :)

Sil

perfect!

drank Irish Cream by Red Leaf Tea

mmm i quite like this one, though i’m not sure it’ll be a reorder since im really liking some of the other "creamy’ teas that i’ve picked up since getting this one. This is the sort of tea you could add a splash of caramel baileys to, to really make it delicious and fun to drink haha

Another tea from this morning and it’s a partial sipdown. I finished off my older bag, but since i recently picked up more of this, no change to my cupboard…just a more fresh cupboard lol While Mandala’s are still my favourite, these are my runner up for pearls, and my go to, since Mandala hasn’t been able to source more of the others :) Just a nice malty tasty cup this morning.

Terri HarpLady

I need to do my ‘tea pearl’ sipoff, maybe this week :)

drank Queen of the Hill by Sloane Tea Company

I had a cup of this today in an effort to get through my older teas that are nearly sipdowns. My goal is to get through my april/may/june 2013 teas before the end of march so that i can get closer to the 6 month range of the age of teas in my cupboard. I’m doing well at under a year anyway but i’m aiming for 4-6 months if i can :)

This one is such an AVERAGE cup of tea that i can’t wrap my brain around the price. 33$ for 100g…i mean it’s not 20$/.5oz or anything but that’s still a lot for what, in my taste, is less exciting that teas i spend 10$ for 100g on. It’s ok but nothing to write home about…glad i didn’t pay that price and that it’s almost gone heh :)

Fjellrev

Tsk tsk, poorly-masked premium pricing at its best.

I’m a little excited now…I just meant to get the teas out on the table for tomorrow’s packing up swap stuff..and uh 2 hours later all my packages are bundles up and just need addresses before they’re ready to go out! It also means that i’m now in a great place to have a bunch of sipdowns tomorrow bwahahaha! which is good since i added 3 teas to my cupboard tonight.

I brewed this one up and sadly, forgot about it for an hour…DO NOT DO THAT! it makes it taste not as good. lol I really wanted cacao..but i only have enough for a small cup and that’s being saved for tomorrow…

Courtney

When I get in my fresh infusion of Cacao I can send a bit more. :)

Sil

haha i need to just place an order…but i’m trying SOOOOO hard to hold off on orders until after terri’s box gets here. lol

VariaTEA

Sil, do they still have their shop in Toronto? Ordering from them is so horrible that I am planning to just go to the store when I move home and buy my Strawberry Justice there. However, I am not entirely sure their store still exists.

keychange

Haha sil…don’t be so confident about those numbers dropping…;). Just wait and see.

OMGsrsly

I don’t think their store still exists, VariaTEA. Also: It’s pretty bad that people are putting off buying from them because ordering is horrible. :/

Fjellrev

I’ve only ordered from them once. Would you all say that customer service has been consistently bad or has gotten even worse over time?

Sil

Key change…..bah! Lol it will go down! Even if it’s only for. A week!

VariaTEA – their retail location closed, after my 3 attempts to actually get to tHe store and have it be open. Every time I went it was closed, even though it was during their opening hours… For random reasons.

Cavocorax

Apparently they hired help or something a few weeks ago, so maybe service has gotten better? I’ve ordered twice with them. The first was Black Friday and it took at least 2 weeks for my order to ship. The second order was in January, I think, and it took about a week for it to ship. There’s not much communication from them…

VariaTEA

I called and emailed them multiple times and still have heard absolutely nothing back. First because I got an order and it didn’t have the Banana berry rooibos I ordered. Then I contacted them to ask if they wanted me to return the duplicates of the Cyber Monday teas they sent. Then, in my most recent order, I got ahold of them by email and they were supposed to add a sample of Graham Slam to my order which they didn’t (and I still don’t know if they charged me for it or not because of my credit card issue last month).

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t had a chance to try this one…

Sil

VariaTEA – awful… :)
Terri – Sounds like a free sipdown for meeee! ;)

..weird. I know i’ve had this before but i can’t seem to find a tasting note for it. Oh well..this was another tea from this morning since i need to stay moving on to some of my other teas. this is similar to other TTC taiwanese blacks but different in that it’s less juicy and honey sweet and closer to being malty, without actually being malty. if that makes sense. either way, a good cup for today!

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.
