another of the 12 days from herbal infusions from Dexter I am not a fan of greens 90% of the time. Flavoured greens especially. But i DO like trying all the teas. Which means, i will drink green flavoured teas :) This isn’t a terrible cup but it’s not my favourite. If i was going for an almond blend, i’d prefer the depth that a black base brings. still happy to have tried it through! thanks dexter!

so many teas in my cupboard that i love and don’t drink enough. So i pulled this one out to drink with my delicious breakfast. scrambled eggs with onions, tomatoes, herbs, goat cheese…of course that was hours ago and now i’m starving for lunch! haha Really like how subtle this one is but how just a bit longer steep time can bring out the bananas like nobody’s business :) way to go teafairy!

TheTeaFairy

So glad you like my blend! A lot of people seem to think there isn’t enough banana flavour but to me it’s just the right amount. I like to taste the base as much as the favouring and it does just that for me. And you’re right, I always oversteep it and it does bring it to the next level and still let the Keemun shine.
Now I’m gonna have Ruby Pie in your honor :-)

Sil

i could do with MOAR banana but i love it just the way it is..it’s banana walnut, not just banana haha and you’re right about the base, though of course i always forget it’s keemun :) i should add a bit of maple syrup and see what happens haha

TheTeaFairy

Although i’m not big on adding sugar, I do love maple and occasionally add a tad to certain flavoured teas. i have tried it in this one and it’s delish! It resemble maple pecan oolong…

Sil

yeah i never add anything…except maple to keemuns and the occasional assam haha

thank you gracebtlb She sent this my way in an awesome card full of puppies! I figured i might as well drink it think morning rather than adding it to my cupboard :) This is an interesting tea for me. I rather think i’ll ask Garrett for another sample of this the next order i place so that i can have some more. It’s not an overly fruity or malty tea, but there’s enough going on of both that it blends well together for a rather tasty cup! Thanks again grace!

I’m so cold this morning. I’m almost considering braving outside to go to the office where i’d at least be warmer while i was there. Not that it’ll happen. Picked this one early this morning to try a few more of the teas that Dexter sent me. I have a whole bunch of samples from her, teafairy and missB that i need to get through so that my cupboard gets back to normal heh. I didn’t mind this one as much as others did. It had that creamy bailey’s feel to it, along with mint that wasn’t in your face sort of mint. I’ve got another little bit of this to try again and see if i stil feel that way on my second cup :)

drank Key Lime by Grosche
5777 tasting notes

when theteafairy gives you directions, you listen. Must.Not.Brew.Hot. So i cold brewed this because after all, I wouldn’t want to risk the tea tasting like feet (there’s a story there for another time) :) I’ve never had tea from this company so it was nice to receive this in my swap with the teafairy. This is a very lightly flavoured tea that really does have a natural lime taste. I’m going to have to play with this a little more but it’s tasty! especially with just a pinch of sweetner added to it! thank you teafairy!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
TheTeaFairy

Hahaha! That was funny :-) Glad you liked it iced, it’s a true fresh lime flavour, isn’t it?
BTW, at your own risk you may also have your feet session, I’m not much of a control freak, lol!!!
P.S. Don’t forget the cocktail option too, I think I put enough in there on purpose so you can I have a few more shot.

Kamyria

LMAO!! Now I’m intrigued! Tea tasting like feet, I wonder what’s that like. If I was you, I don’t think I could stop myself… just so I could say I had a tea that tasted like feet. lol

Sil

kam – oh that story will be in my tea logs eventually when i get more time to drink up the samples that the teafairy sent me :)

TheTeaFairy

About that feet business, don’t know if you ever tried it, but I remember Crème de Menthe puerh from DavidsTea…REALLY tasted like stinky feet!!! Imagine, it’s over 3 years ago and I still remember that awful smell, yuck, yuck…

mattcc

i like it iced as well! very nice tea

TheTeaFairy

Haha! mattcc, I thought no one else knew this tea even existed!

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.
