Sample sip down! One of the teas I brought with me that arrived before I left for the cottage that I took so that I wouldn’t have to add them to my cupboard ha! This is a really nice black that I. Happy to have tried. Theres a smoothness to it that I quite like.

Sip down! Thank you for this one nicole this is a clearly a yunnan tea and is another delicious tea from capital teas. This might be the last sample that I have from Nicole, though I’m not 100% sure since my tea stash is back home. Hanging out at the cottage means whatever teas I tossed in the box to bring up with me whenever I can spare a moment. The rain is coming down now so we’re hold up in the house, listening to music, playing board games while outside the food is cooking on the fire :)

Nicole

That sounds great. :)

Indigobloom

board games, tea and a fire?? awesomeness

Sip down! Won’t get too many of these unless I can find time in the next couple of days at the cottage to drink more tea but I did bring a few with me so that I could at least try. Having a cup of this while I wait impatiently for the boys to get up. Lots to do today in Ottawa before we finish the drive up to the cottage! I’ve really enjoyed the teas Terri share d with me from the puritea….enough to think about a small reorder in the future, especially since the little sample packs are so cute! Tanks for sharing Terri. Rating this one later as iPad rating is the suck lol

Aother tea I managed to nab tonight. I’m not sure if its Ottawa water so I’m glad ill have more to try when I get back to Toronto, but this did not taste like any other oolong I’ve had. Neither green nor roasted. It was intriguing to say the least so I’m looking forward to trying this again when I get home. It’s like earthy and yet not…there isn’t that toasty taste I get from most roasted oolongs…yep. Interesting :)

Terri HarpLady

I don’t think I’ve sampled this one yet. :)

Awkward Soul

ooh, never heard of this tea seller. Checking them out.. very tempting!

Terri HarpLady

You will LOVE the packaging, it is beautiful!

Terri HarpLady

AND the teas are tasty too!
:)

Cavocorax

Oh – I hope I like the water in Toronto! I hadn’t considered that. :O

Sil

Cavo – it’s very similar to water in b.c from what I can remember.
Awkward soul – Terri and I purchased a number of their black teas and all have been great so far! I particularly like the fact that you can get them in 25g sample sizes and shipping isn’t terrible…at least in Canada. Th packaging isn’t resealable but its pretty and the customer service is really good.

Terri HarpLady

I reseal those kind of packages with a fold-over & a paper clip usually.

Tried this today via tastybrew though I didn’t have much time to really pay attention to it. Thankfully I’ve got more to play with when we’re up at the cottage and I can take time to drink tea on the edge of the dock :)

Cavocorax

That sounds really awesome. I want to sit by some water and drink tea.

Wait. Unless there’s a bajillion mosquito. #wimp

Sil

I get eaten alive by mosquitoes…..but “usually” it’s not too bad at the cottage except in the evening…but that’s why we stand around the fire in the evening :)

drank Miami Mango by Steep City Teas

Been drinking this over the past few days….nice thing about cold brews is its a good way to finish up larger quantities of teas you don’t love!

Terri HarpLady

Yes, it is!

Cavocorax

It is, except I let the whole pitcher sit in the fridge for a week or so before I remember to drink that instead of whatever tea I’m brewing up. Or I give it to the baby if it’s herbal.

Terri HarpLady

I have 2 cold brew projects in the fridge now. One is the puer from yesterday evening. The other one? Hell…I don’t even remember. I started it the night before last, & I recall it being some flavored tea…I guess I’ll find out in a little while.

Tea of choice for a baseball game? This one! I thought of you while I was there terri!

Amariel

I had this one tho morning….haven’t written about it yet, though.

Terri HarpLady

Yay for Baseball!!
I didn’t get to watch the game tonight, but I was talking to my daughter Jess, while I was cleaning the stove hood, & she was watching the game & telling me what was going on when Allen Craig got the Grand Slam that kicked the Cincinnati Red’s butts!! YEAH!

Sick with a guest here and heading out to travel means ill be quiet around here for a bit I suspect. Montreal tomorrow, Ottawa and the up to the cottage for some much needed RnR. Hoping to get a chance to drop by a couple tea shops but my cupboard will be happy if I don’t haha. Tying to stick to old favourites while I work on getting better even though my tastebuds seem unaffected. Brought this one out with me today when we drove down to Niagara Falls. Yay waterfalls!

Fjellrev

Montreal and Ottawa. Sounds like an awesome trip.

yyz

Have a great time at the cottage! The rest of your trip sounds great as well. I’m heading up to my cousin’s cottage off of Georgian Bay as well.

Terri HarpLady

You’re still sick? Poor girl, I hope a little vacay time helps.
I almost went to the London Tea Room today. I was just a few blocks from it, & really wanted to stop & have a pot, see if they have anything new, & ogle at all the tea paraphernalia, but I didn’t really have enough time, so I made myself be good.

Cavocorax

Take it easy! ;)

Sil

I’m feeling better now but my nose is running like nobody’s business. Been through one box of Kleenex in the car today already lol

TassieTeaGirl

Aw, Ontario & Quebec! Makes me “home” sick. Have a great trip!

Sil

Thanks tassie…

Figured since I was already drinking an oolong, I should have some of this with it. Especially since this is very nearly ready for a sip down which will help out my ever growing cupboard just a wee bit. I haven’t yet added the teavivre teas that came in the mail yet as I don’t want to to pen them until I’m ready to send off the split tea to boxermama and Terri. No sense open the tea before we have to. So I have a number of teas in my house that aren’t in my cupboard, but I don’t consider it cheating since they’re in storage haha sadly that will change In a few week I suspect, when cavocorax arrives in Ontario to claim all her teas from me :) maybe I can get sort of close to 200 before that happens since I know she’s bringing tea with her from the gang out west!

This one is nothing I need to keep in my cupboard because I just don’t drink a lot of oolongs. Nthing wrong with this tea but I think I’d likely stock the milk oolong from mandala first if I were picking any to have in my cupboard all the time :)

Terri HarpLady

I’ve already included all of those teas on my inventory, lol

Cavocorax

If it helps any, you have 5 samples coming from OMGsrsly, and up to nine from me. I won’t make yours too big though cuz if you love any of them we can always get more. (Or I can send you more of mine)

Sil

Send? Haha no sending. You’re stuck with meet ups now…..unless you’re totally a weirdo * grin*

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.
