another from terri! I’m attempting to get to 115 teas today while i work on making soup; cleaning the house; seasoning my first teapot and possibly baking something delicious to go with our homemade mac and cheese tonight. All our friends are off visiting family for the holiday so we have a grand ol’ day of doing nothing at the house…no commitments,just relaxing and enjoying things. Sadly this tea is not my favorite. there’s a note i’m getting here that is just meh… boring and meh. I’ll pass the rest of this off to cavo and see if it works for her heh

boychik

Pot ? Do share the source and pic if possible

caile

That’s a cute teapot! I have it on my teavivre wish list. :)

Sil

it was on sale during their anniversary stuff, so i bit the bullet and bought my first one. There’s one that garrett has that i really want as well, but we’ll see how this goes first. heh

caile

Yeah, that sale tempted me too…
What kind of tea are you going to use it for?

Sil

i seasoned it with special dark :)

caile

Ah, nice!

drank Wuyi Jin Jun Mei by Life In Teacup
7618 tasting notes

i have a confession to make. Jin jun mei is terri’s tea. It’s one of the few places where our tastes diverge as she loves a good jin jun mei, while i haven’t yet found one that knocked my socks off. This one, is so far, one of the ones i’ve enjoyed the most. Terri gave me a package of this one to try and it’s really nice. Lots of sweetness here to enjoy. It still won’t win me over completely but i’m glad to have tried it. Now to find others that i like :)

Dexter

You don’t have to LOVE all the teas, but I would have thought that Jin Jun Mei would have been your style…. I guess Terri and I are on the other side of the fence together….

i snuck some of this from terri’s overflowing cupboard when i was there just to see if this was something i can get behind. I for sure got the chocolatey notes in this one as i had it this morning, but there’s something about the base of the tea that isn’t my favourite. An enjoyable cup, but i’m glad to just have my little sample cup to drink:)

last cup of tea tonight since i got distracted with vacation planning. We’re trying to decide between a new place in cuba (different from where we went before) with upgraded butler service etc…as a splurge OR a 7 day disney cruise to a bunch of places we haven’t been before. both options being equally awesome. :)

I am enjoying this tea a bunch. It’s a nice ginger tea that still retains the citrus aspect which makes it a little less intensely ginger, but still has a bit of a kick to it, which i enjoy a bunch.

Final count: 123 (i may make it to the teens after all before tuesday!)

Terri HarpLady

I think I still havent tried this one yet

NofarS

123… Oh, how I envy you.

Nxtdoor

Dude. Where in Cuba? The Royalton Santa Maria is where we’re likely going. Adult only, butler service and stuff. 100 something rooms so nice and small!!

Sil

we’re likely going to try paradisus de oro in holguin. Either that or go back to santa clara and hit the melia buenavista – we loved las dunas over there.

NofarS – it’s haaard work… and i have incoming teas lol

Nxtdoor

Yah, paradisus in holguin is the other one. Good one! We basically are price watching right now. Whichever of the two drops more in the next two weeks gets us. When are you going? January for us.

Sil

November…i need some sort of vacation after the last few months at work. :) and this will force me to actually relax.

drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA
7618 tasting notes

farewell hot tropic! while i enjoyed you while i had you, i likely won’t need to pick up more of this ever again. I generally find that most David’s teas aren’t anything i keep to keep around permanently or on a regular basis, they’re much more of a sort of tea where i pick up 25g, drink it and then i’m done. this one being no exception to that :)

drank Maple Taffy by Bayswater Tea Co.
7618 tasting notes

had a cup of this tonight. it’s still a weird sort of blend for me. Popcorn in here, which doesn’t really seem to add to the blend, but doesn’t interfere with it either. Cinnamon, which is hard to equate to maple…but it works in a weird way. Not my favourite tea, but not half bad. :)

farewell my delicious chocolate tea. It was a pleasure having out in my cupboard. If only MF sold this on in bags and not as a special edition tea. Then it would be worth restocking. However, at the price of the tin + tea, it’s a luxury really and hard to justify unless maybe i get over to france :)

I had a cu of this before passing the rest off to a tea friend who wants to try the two teas we have all blended, separately. (this + creme brulee). I actually think i could live without the creme brulee tea and just keep this one on hand, though i do love the taste of the two blended. Perfect cup to get my going out of the house. Costco/the mall today before the holiday tomorrow. It’ll be insane and i’ll hate it but it need to be done.

Dinosara

I feel the same way about this one and Creme Brulee. Some day I will have to get more of this one!

drank Vanilla Cookie by Blue Teapot
7618 tasting notes

ok, it’s decided. I’m over this tea. The first cup i had was really great and then subsequent cups have been truly “meh” I’m not sure if it’s because the flavouring changed really quickly or what. At least i tried it though. Passing this on to a random steesterite for them to try and then pass along if they don’t like it haha. SOMEONE probably needs to pick up all the teas at my place…. just saying haha

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.
