drank Assam #1 by thepuriTea

I had this in the morning in my travel mug. It’s part of the joint order that Terri and i shared. I have to say on the whole, this is a fairly average cup. It’s not bad, it’s not great…sort of middle of the road for me in terms of assams. What does that mean? I’ll finish it up, but not order more and it’s another one to cross off my list of “all the teas!” :) thanks terri!

I really wanted to like their teas, & they are ok, but none of them live up to the description, & they don’t look at all like the photos. Oh well, at least they don’t taste bad. I think maybe I’m just too use to awesome over the top teas, haha

Another tea from this morning, but of course i had no time to log anything since it was back to work! I am nearly down to the end of this but i’m ok with that since another order with stacy is imminent! woot woot!

Glad that i’m still loving this one after all this time :)

Rosehips

Had my very first cup of this today. It was wonderful.

Sil

I saw that! Glad you enjoyed it…stacy’s got some amazing teas imo :)

Had another smoothie with this in the morning. Still a delicious treat, though I maintain that this is one that robust flavouring would be the way to go for me :)

Fuzzy_Peachkin

That DOES sounds quite decadent!

Terri HarpLady

I still have that little vial of matcha you sent me. I should drink that. Remind me…how do you make your smoothie?

Sil

Uh however The fancy strikes me :) milk + ice + frozen banana+ matcha. I like flavouring so I use anywhere from 1.5 to 2 tsp per cup of liquid (milk)

Cold brew of this one and I am loving it! With a bit of lemon and sugar this is the perfect basic iced tea.

Indigobloom

Formosa with lemon?! I must try this

Sil

it just adds a bit of yum to the tea. I’m sure it would be similar for most black teas that are cold brewed. it just worked really well with this one, so i’ll likely finish the rest of what i have by cold brewing heh

Indigobloom

Huh. I’ve never had lemon in anything except for black tea. My curiosity is piqued!

Terri HarpLady

I never add lemon to any of my teas, not even iced. I do, however, love lemon in my water! :)

Indigobloom

Terri, lemon water is da best!!

oh man…having a smoothie of this one today while i deal with work crap on my day off! I really want this one to be more intense in flavour. This is one that can benefit from Robust Flavouring. This will for sure be a re-order as well whenever i get through some of the many…many…flavours in my cupboard at the moment! lol

drank Chai Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

As part of my ongoing effort to rid my cupboard of things that i don’t enjoy drinking, this one i’m having a final cup of, before sending it “back” to my pregnant friend who pawned hers off on me. haha In this way she gets interest on the tea she was storing at my place and i get one less matcha in my cupboard :)

Terri HarpLady

When’s that baby due anyway?

Sil

Haha October….very soon. She’s started being able to tolerate the smell of tea again so I see this as an opportunity for me to get it out of my house! Since I won’t drink it :)

drank Cinnamon & Spice by Compass Teas

SIPDOWN! figured this might be a tea that would cut through the weirdness my taste buds are having today. This was decent enough and i thank joonsusanna for sharing it with me :) I’ll stick with other rooibos blends for non caffeinated teas but this was still a decent cup of cinnamon-ey/spicey tea!

drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea

I’m not sure if my tastebuds are off this morning so i’m going to with leave the rating alone. I’m glad i have enough for another attempt. It’s not a pleasant cup at all this morning, which leads me to believe that i’ve goofed on something because my first drink of this was pretty darn tasty!

drank White Christmas by 52teas
4719 tasting notes

I had this earlier today. While it’s a holiday here in Canada (except for Quebec), SOME of us were rudely awoken this morning to system issues that they have since spent the better part of this GLOIRIOUSLY fabulous sunny, summer day, dealing with. Yes. I’m grumpy. And this tea didn’t help. Not sure if my taste buds are off or something but it was bitter and icky. I’m hoping it’s a one off. If it continues, i’ll adjust the rating downward.

Courtney

That’s unfortunate :( This is one of my all-time favourites. Hopefully your day picked up.

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.
