drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas

i said quits on sipdowns terri! not tea drinking!

yeah…i REALLY decided i wanted this one. and then…because i always realise half way through my cup that i want to try this as a latte…i finally remembered before brewing the tea. So i’m having this, as a latte, and it is deeeelicious! I will be really sad when this one is finally gone because it’s exactly what i want in a strawberry honeybush tea. Frank’s other strawberry pie tea was good…but after this one came out, it’s my new favourite since it doesn’t have the cinnamon factor :) As a latte this is pretty darn close to being a strawberry milkshake..and that? that makes me super happy!

LiberTEAS

It would also make Walter Bishop happy!

Terri HarpLady

Wow! That sounds awesome!

QueenOfTarts

I’m sad I missed this one.. It sounds so tasty!

yyz

let’s start a campaign to get it re-blended!

Having a cup of this tonight… i’ve been up since stupid o’clock having not slept well for the past few nights because my other half is sick and i’m fighting it. I should likely STOP drinking tea but it just seems soooo early lol. At least i’m trying to stick to caffeine free options just in case. I will have to reorder this one soon enough as well since i’m nearly out.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I though you said you were calling it quits for the night?
I think you were trying to fool me! LOL

Sil

naw these aren’t sipdowns silly… just good tea i want :)

Terri HarpLady

I understand!
All I really want to do tomorrow is drink something I know & love: Zhu Rong, Laoshan Black, or some other awesome tea that I can just savor without having to worry about my count, LOL.

Sil

yep…though i’ll still likely try to do my one sipdown a day and/or drink up some of my 52 teas…that operation is still in effect lol. Hoping i can get to 200 by the end of next weekend…which would leave 5 weeks to get as close to 150 as possible, which is TOTALLY doable if my swaps don’t send me oodles of tea, the BBB Box doesn’t make it back here and i actually manage NOT to place any more orders for all of october…

Terri HarpLady

It will take all of my strength to not place any orders, but I’m gonna try to stay ‘clean’.

SIPDOWN! I figured i might as well end my sipdowns for the evening with this one, since it marks my 2600th note since i joined steepster 14 months ago. In that time i’ve met some fabulous people and tried 1118 teas…if steepster is to be believed lol.

This one is interesting but not a repurchase for me. i like the sandalwood addition. thanks for sharing this with me cavo!

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

Calling it quits for the night, eh?
LOL, my odds of catching up are pretty narrow at this point, but I do have until midnight! mwahahaha

Ysaurella

congrats on the 2600th notes…serial drinker
You forgot to say how many teas you bought since you joined Steeper…I am afraid to count for myself !

Terri HarpLady

OMG, right Ysaurella! I know we’ve all become compulsive tea buyers since we joined this place! There are just too many teas!

Sipdown! Another tea from tastybrew. I like this one less than the other. I don’t really get the whole caramel macchiato flavour. It’s an “ok” tea, but I’d rather have the other one, an did rather just drink the actual coffee beverage over that one. Still though, happy to have tried it :)

drank The Liberator by Java Tea Co

Sipdown! Lol I’m like an addict who just can’t stop….plus I’m soooooooooo bored. I’m about to crack open my box set of Roald Dahl books to see how many of them i can read tonight since I’ve watched a lot of TV.

Trying this one again, I think I’ve landed on being ok with this brew, though I’d rather just drink coffee. The flavour isn’t bad, but for something like this, I’d really rather just have that delicious coffee flavour…coffee…chocolate……mmmmm

Thanks for sharing though tastybrew! I was super curious about these ones!

gmathis

Roald Dahl…loved reading him with my son. Just thinking about The BFG makes me smile.

Sil

yeah…box set was on sale at costco…so i got them. there are a few i haven’t read, so looking forward to them!

yyz

Which is your favourite, I think I read Charley and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach before I abandoned kid’s lit and yes if I am honest I was stuck up about it… Then on the other hand my mother introduced me to Jean
Auel’s books when I became interested in prehistory before I was in grade 3.

Sil

Oh…. I loved the twits and witches…Matilda. I go back and read kids books all the time. Loved jean auel books too!

SIPDOWN! 221 and i am 98% water for sure at this point. i REAAAAAALLLYY wanted to get to 217 today but i’m not sure i can do it. It’s getting late and i should probably stop drinking fluids lol

There are some silver needles that i quite like, and there are others that are pretty much water. This is one of the former – it’s a delicious juicy white tea.

sipdown! thank you kaylee! suprisingly enough…i REALLY like this. Contrary to my usual dislike of earl grey’s i am enjoying this! The mint isn’t overly present, but it tempers the bergamot and makes this a really nice cup. also..it’s GREEEEEEEEENNN! lol

Terri HarpLady

Sil

LMAO i haven’t even finished writing my tasting note!!

drank Chocolate Orange by Bayswater Tea Co.

sipdown! this was a cold brew since i wanted to try and see how it fared as a cold brew. Although this isn’t a bad brew, i MUCH prefer this hot brewed, since as a cold brew i kept expecting it to be orange cream, not chocolate orange. :) Thanks again for this cavo…i like it :)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

SIPDOWN! After waking up the sick, snoring man and feeding him, I figured it was time to get back to a few more teas before i reached my limit for today…i’m starting to feel a bit sloshy but i think the food will help me too haha. All in all, not sad to see this go but i enjoyed it while i had it. whee!

Ysaurella

Sil

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.
