Small cup of this to cleanse my palate while sitting on meeting this morning. Still tasty even if its a green :)

Had a cup of this a while back, mostly because I had the mint chocolate matcha :) that’s how I roll yo! Haha mostly this was chosen as part of my effort to sip down my 52 teas stash because I have tooooo many of those that I’ve been hoarding. :) still enjoying this one, though likely not a reorder as I seem to have somehow accumulated a large number of chocolate mint teas. I find too that I prefer the herbal versions over the black base…

drank Mint Chocolate Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4704 tasting notes

mmmmm Tasty! Full review will come later when i have a chance to drink this straight but as a latte, it’s delicious! I picked up the distinctive version of this, but i think robust would be the way to go. I like my chocolate mint to be strong! This is a pretty delicious :)

Hmmm. What if you mixed the chocolate and peppermint matcha? I’ll have to bring mine sometime so we can compare :)

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

SIPDOWN! (233) Thank you cavocorax for sending some of this my way. This is a weird blend for me. I totally get the almond taste, and that’s delicious but then the cranberry taste is like HEY! HEY YOU! Yeah..i’m tlaking to YOU! LOOK AT ME! and of course i’m like “but i don’t wannnaaaaaa”

Yeah, that happened. True story and all that jazz. haha ok but really? I can see how a large number of people would like this tea. I think though, I prefer my rich creamy teas to not have fruit in them. It’s like those fruit and nut chocolate bars…what’s up with that? You’re enjoying the delicious creamy chocolate taste…the nuts blend in nicely with it and then there’s this fruity. right in the middle of all that goodness. BAH! and i like fruit…but not when it interupts my deliciousness…it’s like nuts in brownies.. ick. why ruin a good thing!

LOL so anyway this tea? I love the almond/creamy/deliciousness but i could do without the cranberriness of it all…which means this probably isn’t the team for me but its not a BAD cup of tea :) Thanks Cavo!

Having a cup of this as it’s a milder black that doesn’t demand my attention this morning either. I’ve got a ton of things to finish up before the day really gets going and i’m in back to back meetings so i wanted a few cups of tea to kick off the day that i could just absent mindedly drink. I still enjoy this tea, though as i’ve branched out and tried a number of other teas, i think i like this one a little less now. I haven’t yet had a chance to drink it gongfu style yet though, and i suspect i’d get more out of it by doing so. Overall though, i am happy with this purchase :)

drank Keemun by Mandala Tea
4704 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (234) Thanks again to terriharplady for being so awesome! I’ve really enjoyed this one from Mandala even though it’s not my all time fav keemun. This is a cup that i could enjoy most days because it’s that kind of tea that doesn’t deman attention but is still flavourful and is enjoying to drink. I’m working from home today so look out cupboard! i hope haha

I think I’m finally gonna get some serious tea drinking done today too. I’ve just spent the morning sipping & relaxing while 2 of my ladies practiced duets for a performance they have this sunday. I didn’t actually have to do anything, except help with the counting of a few measures of one song. Otherwise, relax. I’m so glad this is my job! :D

Yay!

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
4704 tasting notes

Final tea of the evening. Even though i still enjoy this quite a bit, it won’t likely be a permanent to my collection. I’ll still pick it up from time to time but i’ve grown to love the lime chiffon more from della terra and the orange cream even more than that!

drank Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble by DAVIDsTEA
4704 tasting notes

Figured I’d better end my night of tea drinking soon so i’m not waking up with a giant bladder of doom! lol So i picked this one and a rooibos to end the night. I’m really happy kittenna “made” me get some of this. I am a fan and would likely be willing to pick more up if David’s ever brought it back.

drank Three Berry Tea by Compass Teas
4704 tasting notes

Another one from Junesusanna via cavocorax! This is a pretty tasty one. I’m not sure if it’s because there’s green rooibos in this one or what but it’s a really delicious fruity tea! I really want to cold brew this next to see if it’s a tea i can get behind cold as well. the berries are all hanging out in this one really nicely and there’s no bitterness. it also hasn’t devolved into that whole “generic” berry taste that i’m not fond of. happy to have this one to play with a bit more!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Cinnamon & Spice by Compass Teas
4704 tasting notes

This tea reminds me of another tea that i’ve had before. overall not too bad but i can taste the rooibos in this one and that woodsy taste isn’t my favourite. I don’t get much cinnamon from this either but i do get the generic “spice” flavour.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

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.
