drank Black Pearl by Mandala Tea
5773 tasting notes

haha i really should remember to look at my notes before brewing things. 7 pearls for 16oz mug = a few too many pearls. 5 would probably do it, but i’m trying to compare a couple so i’m going to be consistent.
I know garett is working on getting these back. I certainly hope he succeeds since these are DELICIOUS. They’re slightly smokey, chocolately, grainy, malty delicious bundles of joy!

Edit: Loving the resteeps on these as well!

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Teavana

Terri sent me a few more of these so that i could see which i prefer of the dragon pearls currently in my cupboard. Since i’m currently having a bit of a blah day – no real desire to work on sipdowns or do much of anything in particular heh.

These are tasty – nothing knock your socks off but not to be entirely discounted either. If i was in need of golden pearls and my other sources were out, i could pick these up and be satisfied. they have a background taste that you could call chocolatey but not overly so. the brew is smooth and almost malty, but not quite. still a good cup for the morning.

Edit: 7 pearls for 16oz

drank Pumpkin Ginger Spice by Traveling Tea

TERRI! I WANT MOAR! seriously..this is damn tasty! It’s my christmas mor-er-afternoon tea and this is so delicious. Please remind me next year we want lots of this. This might be my favourite pumpkin tea this year.

Edit: this resteeps really nicely since you can brew it and forget it lol This is pretty much all i’ve had since we got up this afternoon.

Terri HarpLady

YAY!! I knew you’d love it!
The best part is she roasts & then dehydrates the pumpkins herself. I don’t know if she grew them, or if a friend of her’s grew them, but they are locally grown. Anyway, yeah, next year we have to load up on it for sure!

The other tea i had last night to save the day. This is probably one of the most expensive teas in my cupboard because you can’t simply buy it in refill packaging. MF makes you buy the tin, which is lovely, but not worth the extra 9+euros it adds to the price, esp when you already have one. But i love this tea…and i’m nearly out of it, which makes me sad. It’s probably my perfect chocolate tea because it’s not sweet. It tastes like the mousse au chocolate made with dark, rich chocolate. I need to try this as a latte sometime. Regardless..it’s heaven for me.

drank Wedding Impérial by Mariage Frères

I had this last night, in an effort to end the night on a more positive note. I spent more than 12 hours working on christmas eve – a night when most are going home early. As a result we didn’t get out to the store to pick up last minute things for today. Not the end of the world but it made for a super long day. So i bust out two of my favourite “treat” teas to have last night. I’m almost out of this one and it WILL be a reorder. Great tea base, nice flavouring (unless you’re Justjames). it’s one of my happy places.

JustJames

oh sil, not fun. happy xmas my dear…. xoxoxoxox

Sil

JustJames

Love. this. Thank you tastybrew for picking some of this up while wandering the island. I seriously want to go to hawaii some day but this is a bit of a consolation prize ;) I am enjoying this one a ton! I managed to get a couple steeps out of this as well and it continues to be a delicious cup of sweet delicious assam. It’s not like taiwanese assams beyond not being malty :) I really just love this. i dunno what else to say hahaha

yum. cold tea. not. I made this morning after getting woken up early for issues…that are still not resolved, which has caused me to get no work done today outside of this issue. It also means i don’t have a whole lot of time for tea. I brewed this one up right away and got to drink most of it warm..but now it’s cold and sad. I also have no water in my house until they do whatever they’re doing with the water mains today so i’m trying to stretch out the water that i put in the kettle and the brita and a couple uh pots so that i could have tea today lol.

Still like this one, so it appears my tastebuds are only on strike when it comes to 49. :(

TheTeaFairy

Oh, I hope you problems will be resolved very soon…not cool on x-mas eve!

Terri HarpLady

Bummer about the water! Hang in there!

Sil

oh i was prepared…. i have containers with water..just no time to boil water for tea with stupid issues

Cavocorax

Oh no. :( Hope things settle down, and your water returns.

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.
