god i’d forgotten how much i enjoy this tea. Pulled it out this morning since Cavocorax’s recent order with this one made me want to drink it again. Still as bold and delicious as i rememebr! Must order more of this once i’m through my sample.

drank Chai by Red Blossom Tea Company

rainy mornings = chai since that’s the only time it feels cold enough for me to want to drink chai. It’s not a summer drink for me, but at least now i know that heh

Terri HarpLady

I love Chai any time! Last summer I had an iced chai habit that was crazy. When it was cold it was hot chai latte. I haven’t been drinking much chai lately, but whenever I do, I love it.

drank Butterbeer by 52teas
4734 tasting notes

Mmmmm I do like this one cold. I always forget that I like it until I have it and then I wonder why i haven’t had any in a while heh. Just a splash of sweetener in this one to bring out the flavours and I’m good to go!

ashmanra

Great idea, I haven’t tried it iced!

Cavocorax

I’ve never tried it either, and I have 2 oz of it JUST SITTING THERE.

Sil

haha it’s pretty good iced i think :)

drank Cuba Libre Black Tea by 52teas
4734 tasting notes

Had a nice cold glass of this in the afternoon in an effort to continue drinking my 52 teas. It seems not as tasty as the last time I had it to maybe I over leafed it or something this time…

Cavocorax

I should drink more of my 52 Teas as well! I have 2 2oz packs that are unopened, but I bought them from momo for cheap. :D

Sil

yeah i have a tendency to hoard them so i’m making myself drink them

drank Toffee by Le Palais des Thes

Sipdown (230) gotta love working from home days. I don’t think I’ll have any other sip downs today…or maybe just one heh but I’m well on my way to getting to 225 by the end of this weekend. I have 80 teas to sip down by November (not including new teas that are on their way to my house) so likely I have to try and get 8-10 teas a week to stay on track to get to 150 by November 1st heh not sure if that’s doable but if I can get a day a week at home, it might be possible.

This tea is great with a splash of sweetener and even a bit of milk. Makes me wonder how delicious it could be as a latte :)

Cavocorax

It’s… doable?

I think I want to halve my current collection before Black Friday – so I’m at about 120 teas, and roughly 110 oz (which my calculations say is enough tea to last me 257 days! 60 oz would last me 140 days – much more reasonable, right? Yay for Excel formulas!)

drank Florence by Harney & Sons

Sip down!(231) you know what’s tasty? This as a tea latte :) finished off the last of this in that way since I thought the flavour combination might be extra delicious with creamy milk :)

Shmiracles

this is my fave H&S definitely

drank SoHo Blend by Harney & Sons

SIPDOWN! (232) Another one from cavocorax I can’t remember if i asked her to send this to me or it was a random H&S tea because i hadn’t tried it yet but hey..it’s here and i’m drinking it up! :) I didn’t really pay attention to the flavouring of the tea, just brewed it up and took my first sip. I’m happy to say that my tastebuds aren’t totally wonky because this was for sure a chocolate and coconut tea!

What i like about this is how the chocolate and coconut are really well balanced in this. Neither one is over powering the other, which is good for me because it means i can drink it and am enjoying it! I’m not overly a fan of coconut in teas but with the chocolate it’s really nice and not the least bit cloying or too sweet.

Thanks again Cavo!

Chocolate & coconut…sigh…

Cavocorax

You want some of this too, Terri? :P I have my tea spreadsheet open ATM – easy to make notes.

Terri HarpLady

Oh, BTW, the phoenix pearl from Zen tea arrived, thanks! Strangely, it doesn’t look like pearls at all! Anyway, no rush, & feel free to start suggesting things for YOUR next box, lol

Cavocorax

They don’t? They’re round aren’t they? Maybe I sent you something else? (Strange)
But I’ll add SoHo to the list. Lemme know if you want more, and I’ll eagerly eye your tasting notes too.

Terri HarpLady

ah, I see, they are very small pearls. :D
I’m sure they are delicious.

Cavocorax

They were my intro to black pearls so I was blown away. But I’m certain teavivre etc have better versions.

Terri HarpLady

I don’t know if they are better, but the pearls I’m sending you are the size of small marbles!

drank Blueberry Wonderland by Majesteas
4734 tasting notes

Not sure i like this one. I’ll have to play with the steepin parameters because while this smells delicious, it’s a little bitter. So i’ll try cooling it down next time and steeping for a shorter time to see how it goes.

Terri HarpLady

Although I love blueberries, I almost never like anything that is blueberry flavored. bleck

Sil

well that’s because it’s never like what blueberries actually taste like heh. some blueberry flavoured things i like….don’t think i’m liking this one though

Indigobloom

Oh wow I totally thought this was a green, when you said bitter and toning down the temp… hum.
Well if you end up hating it after all, I’ll take some of your hands :)

Sil

You can have some regardless…add it to the spreadsheet

Indigobloom

yay! happy happy dance :D

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.
