sipdown! not my favourite matcha from red leaf but it’s decent enough. Happy to have tried it but this won’t be a reorder for me. Just not quite the flavour i want.

VariaTEA

What is your favorite from them? By the way, I almost just asked what is your “flavorite” before I realized that is not a word.

Sil

mmm i really like french vanilla, pineapple, caramel….

VariaTEA

Ooooh I am very excited to try the French Vanilla. That is if I ever get my order. I am splitting the package with a friend and so we chose the flavors together. She has only tried a couple that I gave her though so when she said she wanted a vanilla but couldn’t decide which I told her we should go with the French Vanilla as per your suggestion :)

sipdown! another lovely sample from kallieboo! While greens aren’t my favourite, this is pretty nice. There is a feeling of a buttery walnutty taste here. Given my preferences for non greens, i wouldn’t keep this as a staple, but i’d be open to having the occasional cup here and there :) thanks for Sharing Kallie!

drank White Blueberry by Adagio Teas

thank you Kallieboo! I’m going to hold off rating this one as it was fairly flavourless to me. I’m not sure if it’s an age thing or it’s too delicate for me. It was an ok cup, but not blueberry.

drank Melon by tweed and hickory

thank you teafairy This is a really delicate tea. The flavouring is really nice and not the least bit artificial. It’s not a strongly flavoured tea but it is tasty! I’m looking forward to to trying this as a cold brew :)

TheTeaFairy

Yay! Yea I too find their base tea to be pretty tasty on its own. You’re instincts are good, I actually preferred it iced :-)

sipdown! (178) Trying to get organised for the next couple of days but i’m not making much progress. On the upside, flights are booked for our vacation! Now to keep on moving. I liked this one a bunch but i don’t think i’ll be restocking it. I’d rather blend my own and take out a bit of the oolong :) Still delicious though!

another tea from this morning. the world has distracted me today. :) However, i am looking forward to sipdown saturday! and sample sunday! woot woot!

Fjellrev

I love the idea of Sipdown Saturday haha. Muchly needed. And I LOVE this tea. :D

Cavocorax

Oh, I totally need to rock some Sipdown Saturday! :D

Sil

i have a bunch of samples i think? i can finish in one cup….but then i have a TON of samples that i haven’t tried that will take a few cups. so i’m hoping i can use sat and sun to do that since there are 15 teas in bound to me…no way i’m hitting 150 this month with all the travelling.

Terri HarpLady

I wish I had time for a sipdown Saturday or Sunday this weekend, cuz I have SO many samples & such. Maybe I’ll make this coming week a sipdown extravaganza :)

Sil

I’m going to try and get through as many as i can…since i suspect there will be tea buying in the very near future…

Terri HarpLady

:) there always is…

Sil

i’m looking at verdant, herbal infusions and river tea at the moment…plus since we’ll be going to florida in february, i’m likely planning an order from at least one place that i can ick up while there (H&S? S&V? Adagio?) AND if i get any free time in chicago this week, i’ll be stopping by adagio and tea gschwender…so team might be picked up there…

Terri HarpLady

I placed my Verdant Birthday order yesterday…just sayin’…

Terri HarpLady

So…where in FL are you guys going?

Sil

Always Orlando :) “family” is there

Another tea for this evening while i try desperately to book flights for our vacation in february. At this rate, i almost want to say the hell with it and just book a flight to wherever happens to be cheap on the day we want to leave! I am still enjoying this one, though i’m already getting near the end of my little bag. I probably should have picked up more on black friday but i just couldn’t justify it. At least this way, i’m getting through teas faster heh

Terri HarpLady

There is that!

Yvonne

This is one I really, really want to try!

MissB

If it helps, I’ve had mucho luck with Priceline getting great flights for ridiculously low prices, i.e. round-trip Seattle to New York for less than $300, all inclusive. I also use a free app on my phone called Skyscanner that has saved my butt a few times with last-minute fares.

Sil

basically i needed to book this flight last week…. soooo now i need to rethink what w’re doing. ie. still going or if i put it off until april..or if we want to do the whole buffalo on the bus to fly from the US.

sipdown! My evening tea with dinner! I’ve been saving the last little bit for a day when i just wanted to enjoy the last of this tea. Happiness is the bottom of a bag of butiki tea…at least in terms of the extra flavouring that falls to the bottom of the bag. Less so the end of a tea i love! At least this gives me an excuse to order again…sooon!

Terri HarpLady

This one is delicious!

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.
