I don’t think that this is a tea for me, though i thank my tea sister terri for sending this my way. There’s too much pepper/smokey flavour going on that offends my tongue. it’s a little strange though since i typically enjoy those sorts of flavours…so this is staying on my list to try again in the future.

drank Red Dragon Pearl by thepuriTea

sipdown! finished up this one and it’s for sure one that i’d consider reordering in the future. I like that it’s not your typical malty black dragon pearl – the fruitiness adds a bit of uniqueness to this that i like. Maybe not a staple, but for sure something i’d rotate in and out :)

drank Momo by Lupicia

cold brewed this one…not a fan. There’s something about the peach in this one that just makes me less than happy. I have enough for a cup or so, but i’m calling this a sipdown and tossing this into the swap box in case someone else wants to try it.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

IB..now is your chance to jump on the trade band wagon. I seem to recall you wanting more of this, so if that’s still the case hollar at me, otherwise this is likely going out of my cupboard and into the swap bucket. It’s not that i hate this tea, but there’s something about it that doesn’t work for me. I’m not sure if it’s the tulsi or what, but there’s this weird sweetness that comes out of nowhere that makes it less appetizing than it would be without it. I tried this as a latte tonight, and while it made it better, it’s still nothing i WANT to drink, so it should go to someone who will love drinking it :)

drank Blueberry Wonderland by Majesteas

I figured out how to drink this one today. Cold steep overnight and add a splash of honey. Not sugar or other sweetners – honey. Because man that honey + blueberry = HELLZ YA! Seriously? it’s nearly enough for me to just bump the everlovingjeebusrating out of this one haha. but i won’t because i don’t like it hot brewed as much and it’s a little too picky for me. But the rest of this? brewed like this for sure!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Terri was getting on my case for not having tried the two teas that tastybrew sent in our BBB Box that we’re sending around. (even though i only got it friday!!! and it’s already out the door!) sheesh! So i packed this up in the travel mug today. Sadly though, as often it happens with work, it got busy and i wasn’t able to jot my notes down. I remember being pretty happy with this one as it’s not a malty black (which i also love, but have a bunch of..) instead it’s a sweet-er black…but not sweet like stacy’s high mountain tea. it was different…and good. More to come when i get to drinking it when i’m NOT at work :) Thanks for participating in the fun girls!

This is a interesting & kind of fruity for a black tea, IMO. Glad you got to try it, & it’s nice to have enough to try at least a few more times!

if you’ve got it, drink it? or something like that… picked this one today since i’m contemplating picking up another 2-4oz. This is the spring harvest that i’m drinking and though it’s nearly the same tea, it is slightly less cocoa-ey than the fall version i’d originally picked up. It’s not any less delicious to me though, so yay for that!

Last cup of the evening…5 sipdowns today and a wonderful afternoon out of the house wandering the city and enjoying the night out. Not much to complain about here…life is good and tomorrow we start back at work for the daily grind heh.

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.
