drank French Breakfast by Mariage Frères

Brewed a cup of this much earlier in the morning. I had to open the seal to send some off to a tea friend so i figured that i was safe to try a cup before the holiday season ends in case i decided i MUST have moar! This is a highly satisfying cup of tea. It doesn’t scream cocoa but there is for sure a malt cocoa taste that runs through this cup. I can see enjoying this one until the last of it is gone :)

drank Lime Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

Had a giant mug of this while watching some Walking Dead with my other half. Still enjoying this one quite a bit after all this time. :)

VariaTEA

Walking Dead and Lime Chiffon – two of my favourite things :P

CHAroma

When are they going to tell Daryl about Carol??! I’ve been waiting for that scene forever! The writers just keep finding ways to keep us in the dark episode after episode.

VariaTEA

I think they decided to cut to the Governor for a bit and in the midseason finally this week everything will come to a head. I mean they can’t exactly put it off much longer if they plan on showing the prison group.

CHAroma

This whole governor segue feels like stalling though. They haven’t shown a single main character for 2 episodes. It’s unusual.

Sil

lol sooo have to stop reading this.. i’m still working through last season…

CHAroma

I tried to be cryptic so as not to give anything away. You should be fine. :)

drank Vanilla Citrus Spice by Verdant Tea

sipdown! Ok this needs to come back now as i’d like to reorder. I didn’t think i would, but today, it’s like i found the magic sweet spot. It was closer to 1TBS for 8oz and then steeped for about 6 mins. Now it’s a creamy, vanilla citrus blend..it’s like a delicious cake like thing. i don’t know..i can’t explain it but this? this is good. yes please!

mmm thanks for sharing this one with me dexter! This brings me officially to 149 – so i’m under my black friday goal and consider myself to be officially working towards tea purchases. 1 sipdown = 1 tea i can purchase lol.

This is a pretty decent assam. It’s got a bit of astringency to it, but not so much that it’s less enjoyable. There’s a teeeeny bit of sweetness hiding in the sip as well, it’s not a malty assam. :) i like this one!

drank Numalighur FTGFOP1 by Mariage Frères

mmm sipdown! This is off to share with tea friends so yay for that! I’ve enjoyed this one, considering it’s a little random tea from my parents. Not much else to say about this one – was a decent afternoon cup while getting some work done.

drank Ceylon Gold by Tea Forte

i made this last week, and apparently forgot to log it. It was a pretty average, every day iced tea. On sale, i’d buy it again but otherwise i have other loose teas i prefer iced. :)

Thanks for this one Terri! I think this one is my second favourite of the bunch you sent me. I guess i’m on a bit of a “let’s drink some oolongs” kick.
This one has less of the charcoal notes to it than the other, but is still clearly an oolong. It’s smooth tasting though and slightly fruitier than the others. Thanks again terri!

Hesper June

I too have been craving oolongs lately! Must be something in the air:)

Terri HarpLady

Glad you like it!

Gotta love getting paid to sit around and drink tea at home while taking care f house things :) this is another tea from Terri. I like this one a bit less than the other oolong from ttc today. This is more charcoal like and has that familiar roasty oolong taste.

Overall not a bad little tea but this one cup was enough!

Terri HarpLady

They make these teas sound so amazing on the website. Honestly, I still haven’t really given them my full attention yet. :)

CHAroma

How are you getting paid to drink tea? Or do you mean you’re on paid leave or something?

Sil

CHAroma – haha on the weekend, if i get called in to do work, i get paid for three hours minimum, don’t need to leave the house and it’s usually for 15 mins of work :) and then, because they called me in, i get “on call time” for the 21 hours that i’m not getting paid regular time… lol

drank Coconut Cabana by The Tea Spot
5583 tasting notes

oh god. i thought i’d give this one a try since i had a good experience with coconut this morning. um. i love you terri, but this is really not the tea for me. I may have taken a sip and held it in my mouth, making a face while trying to decide whether to spit or swallow. lol Funnily enough it’s not so much the coconut that did it to me..it’s the weirdly peachy, grassy green oolong taste and how it doesn’t meld well with the coconut. eesh.

thanks for letting me have a bit of this terri! lol one more tea off the list haha

Terri HarpLady

It wasn’t my thing either, but always worth trying!

so i’m not typically a fan of oolongs, though roasted oolongs are better than green and some aged oolongs are better still. Terri sent this one my way – another tea from TTC that she picked up, that i hadn’t tried. I have to say? this one isn’t bad. I much prefer this aged oolong over their aged black tea :) There’s a sweetness here that i enjoy and it’s missing that “oolongy” taste that i’m not a huge fan of. there’s still a bit of vegetal taste here but it’s more of a burned grass than green grass lol. I’ll be sharing the rest of this little bit with dexter! :)

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, the aged black tea really tasted like roasted beets, which I enjoy eating, but not so much to drink!

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.
