drank Ginger & Lemon Myrtle by Lupicia

second last cup of the evening. I wanted a few more cups but felt like today was one of those days the caffeine might get to me…even if just because i had a stupidly insane work day today. So i pulled this one out and again i’m remind of what a tasty tea this is…and even though it’s more lemon than ginger, it’s still a good time!

drank Orzo by Lupicia
6489 tasting notes

nice…. I figured i really should try the original orzo, since i started with the caramel/honey one. I’ll also have to make sure i steal a cup of Kittenna’s strawberry orzo before she picks up her teas. :) I think i prefer soba from H&S for a normal cup of wheat sort of tea. However, the caramel/honey version of this is like a creamy cup of coffee for me and i love it. Normal orzo sits somehwere in between the two. I still love this cup, but it’s a little one dimensional…it’s like there’s something missing to push it over the edge to a wonderful cup of warm yum. still though? i’ll enjoy all of the rest of my cups…

Have you tried Lupicia’s Pineapple Barley? That also sounded interesting.

Sil

i didn’t know it existed… either that or it was a tea bag haha. i tend to gloss over anything i can’t get loose.

drank Kapha Organic by TeaGschwendner

WHOOOOO EEEEEEE! i love this ! hahaha I’m super glad MissB was kind enough to send me some…even if i think it was a ploy to give me a heart attack in terms of my cupboard numbers. Since i’m finding great success with Tea Gsweoriuweojsofns teas, i can see this being added to an order in the future. It wouldn’t be an every day tea, but this is a really nice spicier sort of delicious tea. I really like the want the fennel smells like, and i like that the tea isn’t just spicy. there are multiple flavours peaking out all over the place. Of course, that being said, i uh steeped this for a little long so i’m sure it’s MUCH more on the spicier side than most people would want bwahahahah oopsy!

this one is a little better. Likely because of the ginger in it…ginger makes every thing better for me haha. Another one from Cavocorax that i can get behind. Still not an overwhelmingly AMAZING tea, but it’s not a bad little cup if you’re after a fandom sort of blend. I wish the ginger was a lot stronger in this but it did show up a little.

I love my ginger!

this is a wackload of “meh” for me. It’s not a bad tea but in the grand acheme of average adagio teas…there are others i’d take first. Appreciate the share though cavo!

drank Chai On Life by DAVIDsTEA

thanks cavocorax this is an interesting sort of tea… i’m not sure how i feel about it. on one hand it’s a decent enough chai-like sort of tea with a bit of spice/kick to it. on the other hand…it’s weird. there’s a fruitness here that seems out of place. i guess i don’t hate this, but i don’t love the crap out of it either :)

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.
