drank Anti V-Day Treat by Della Terra Teas
5119 tasting notes

Had this in latte form and it was deeeeeelicious! I think i am finding that the way to drink up my minty/vanilla teas is in latte form. Apart from the wird red ring i get in the cup from the stupid sprinkles, this was super tasty as a latte :)

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
5119 tasting notes

second last cup of the evening while watching some walking dead. I’ve got enough of this one for maybe another two cups and then it goes on the reorder list. I really like having this one around for low caffeine options. It’s also MUCH tastier than birthday cake from butiki imo as well heh. Love the peppermint and chocolate coming together with this one

drank The Revolutionary by Java Tea Co
5119 tasting notes

I think perhaps, these Java Tea Co. teas are just not the tea for me. It’s not to much the tasting like coffee, since i do love a good coffee, but i just don’t like the way the flavours mesh together. Tastybrew sent this one my way, and while i don’t hate it, i don’t like it much and i’m trying not to keep teas around that i don’t like. So this is getting tossed in the swap box in case any of the girls here want to try it out. Maybe they’ll find a happy place with this one. Thanks though tastybrew! glad i got the chance to try all of these :)

drank Raspberry Macaron by Fauchon
5119 tasting notes

I may have steeped this one at too high a temperature, but i still have some more to play with so that’s all good. This is another one from dinosara and it’s an interesting one. I’m not sure how i feel about it. I didn’t get much in the way of macaron from this, but i did get the raspberry flavouring, though it was more artificial than being close to real raspberries. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but i’m glad i have a little more to play with.

drank Caramele by Lupicia
5119 tasting notes

mmmmm… thank you dinosara I’ve been curious about this tea for a while now and she was kind enough to send some my way.

sheesh..stupid rogers interrupting my tasting note. Long story short, this tea appears to be one that lends itself to really coming together with a little sweetner and maybe some milk. I’ll let you know, since i opted to drink this cup on it’s own. I can sense the caramel in the background…not as present as i wanted it to be but i’ll try with some additions later!

drank Red Tea Classic by Wissotzky Tea
5119 tasting notes

sipdown! this was one from kaylee I opted to try this one since i should probably start drinking a few non caffeinated options now that it’s later in the day. As well, after locating a few teas in my cupboard that were actually gone – i’m super happy to say that i’m now back under where i started the weekend at before dinosara’s swap was added to my cupboard!

I quite like this one…it’s sweet, doesn’t taste overly like rooibos and it’s just a smooth tasting experience. Thanks kaylee!

drank Lemoncello by American Tea Room
5119 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! the rest of this sample is in to the swap box for the girls here to try if they are so inclined the next time they come over. I’ve promised to hold back some of all my american tea room samples so in they go. I opted to try this one as a cold brew, and while it’s not a terrible tea, i’d rather have della terra’s lemon chiffon any day.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

had this again today in an effort to also drink some of my older teas. Today it was overly bitter and not so tasty. Ah well…sipdown!

drank Yunnan by Fortnum & Mason
5119 tasting notes

sipdown! this is a sweet and malty yunnan with a dash of fruity goodness thrown in to the mix. I like this one a lot – in fact many of the teas NofarS was kind enough to send to terri (who graciously saved me some) have been delicious and wonderful. I’m certainly glad to be able to cross them off my list of all the teas! :)

drank Vanilla Bean Black Tea by sTEAp Shoppe
5119 tasting notes

Sipdown! After 2oz of this tea, i’m happy to say it’s a fairly average vanilla black for me. It’s not bad, but it’s not my favourite. I would however, order more if i needed filler in my cart from the steapshoppe.

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.
