SIPDOWN! thanks again to nicole this IS a super fine tea – probably the most fine tea i’ve had without it being matcha. and then…then i sort of um fell asleep for just a little bit. Apparently my body doesn’t care about caffeine. So i drank this a little cold, but it’s still a pretty tasty. This falls into my “every day” sort of tea category. thank you for sharing this with me nicole..sorry my tasting note sucks. but the tea was great!

Nicole

Pft. Sometimes there isn’t much to say other than “every day black” :) You are working your way through my swap faster than I am through yours!

Ysaurella

Sil is a serial drinker, I am impressed with all the teas she manages to drink in a day – Sil are you a kind of superhero like a Kettlegirl or something like this ? a hand is a kettle and the other hand is a cup ??? ;)

Sil

Nicole – that’s because i’m on a mission to sipdown and your teas are perfect for decupboarding :) Plus i like drinking NEW TEAS!

Ysaurella – haha i love this mental image! I don’t drink much except tea, and i’m trying to make sure i keep drinking because for a while there i wasn’t drinking anything for an entire day. :)

Terri HarpLady

That’s an awesome image! If I was any good at coloring, I’d make a picture & send it to your FB, LOL.

drank Himalayan Gold by Capital Teas
4927 tasting notes

sipdown! (211) mmmm another fine tea from nicole I think i accidentally over steeped this a little but i can still get the flavours in this tea. I really like this one, though if i didn’t mess up steeping this, it’s a little stringent for me. or…because it’s a cousin to darjeelinsg, that’s what i’m getting here. What i love about this tea are the under notes happening here. I cant quite place the taste but it’s somehow familiar to me. either that or lack of sleep has made me disfunctional..but at least i’m getting some stuff done..even if it’s as silly as sorting pictures…

Bonnie

Nepali Tea Trader’s has a Himalayan Gold Tea, I wonder if this is the same source. Really good tea.

Bonnie

Oh, you do have to play with the steep times on these teas we found at Happy Luckys, after tasting many Nepalese varieties. It’s not just you.

Sil

good to know Bonnie, especially since i want to order their teas eventually :)

sipdown! yes i’m still living in denial that i might be able to get to 200 today…I can try but i’m guessing i’ll only get to about 205 IF that. Finally home after release weekend and i’m about ready to fall over. Sad part is, if i go nap i’ll be up all the night so both ian and i are trying to stay awake until at least 8pm. which means i can drink tea! lol

Nicole sent this one my way and it has reinforced that i should likely place a small order from mahamosa to try a few more of their teas as i’ve liked the two she sent my way. This is a pretty darn tasty vanilla tea. Might be worthy of a permanent place in my cupboard, or at the very least one of the vanilla teas that i cycle through :) No bitterness…just a smooth cup of good.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

They seem to have good flavored blacks. Glad you are liking some of them. :)

Sil

yep! I’ll have to place an order at some point just to sample some more :)

Another tea for this release weekend. i don’t have much tea left…and i’m looking at being here for at least another 4 hours…here’s hoping that i can find a kettle somewhere here and at least a tea bag.

Cavocorax

Fingers are crossed!

I had more of this tonight…er today? Hell i’m not sure what i am right now. I’ve been up almost all night (had a 1? hour nap before getting to come in to work for early o’clock. Phase one of testing is done…now we’re waiting for the second phase to start. With any luck i’ll be done at 4pm… this tea is saving my life.

In case anyone was wondering, THIS is the tea that you drink to be able to enjoy a wedding you have to attend with your ex….whom you’re still friends with but who broke up with you on your 30th birthday and then got engaged on your birthday while forgetting to wish you a happy birthday.

Yeah…my life is interesting sometimes. On the plus side this was a great tea to drink tonight. I do love my LB…and I had an excuse to get ice cream twice tonight on the way there and back!
Go me! Delicious chocolates malty LB how I love you…you make all the crappy things better!

Bonnie

I hear you! Indulgence was called for indeed!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Wow! That sounds just a bit awkward. Glad this tea made it a little better!

Sil

Yeah. We’re still friends but this was the first time seeing him since they announced it on FB so I wasn’t quite ready for it….apparently I was still a bit upset that he forgot my birthday heh. Life is good though…wedding reception was great! It was at a fireball! I got to play on fire trucks :)

Nicole

Yeah… I can see how that would be a bit awkward to deal with. But ice cream is good. :)

Ysaurella

well it’s looks a little like a boor attitude you are definitively in better company with Laoshan Black :)

Terri HarpLady

Yay for Laoshan Black! Yay for ice cream 2 times in one day! Yay for self-indulgences! Sometimes you just have to treat yourself like the pretty princess you are, have all the ice cream & tea you want, first class yourself all the way, & remind yourself that HE was definitely not the one for you anyway, so who give a f*@%, right? LOL

Sil

Lol. Yep. I think I was Mostly upset he
Forgot my birthday. But I’ve got Ian to make things awesome :)

Hesper June

Whoa. Very glad you had this tea to help you get through that!

Terri HarpLady

Yay for Ian too, cuz he has you!

tigress_al

You deserve ice cream twice in one day after that!

SIPDOWN! I forgot i had to add in 2 butiki teas to my cupboard so there really is no likely way i’ll hit 200 teas this weekend – a more reasonable goal is probably 210, so i’ll aim for that. I didn’t brew this traditional style – i wanted to see if this would hold up to my usual brewing and it did! Thank you nicole for sending this my way. I’ll like pick up more of this at some point from either S&V or H&S. It’s a pretty decent addition to my cupboard for those days when i don’t want an overly bold tea or a malty one. I’m interested in trying it “traditional” style as well some day.

Nicole

Yeah, I find the traditional style quite interesting as a change of pace. :)

drank Té de Frutas by Lupicia

Had a cup of this one today as i need to work on drinking my older teas. Thankfully my teas are all still less than a year old, but there are a few that are getting up there and this is one of them. I always forget how tasty this cup of tea is. I really need to compare it to lupicia’s “lychee” tea that i have in my cupboard to see how different they are and which i like the best. :) still enjoying this one! love the lychee flavour

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.
