Tried this as a cold brew…still no thanks. It was really floral and if i want to drink flowers, i’ll go find a garden. happy enough to have been able to try this and cross it off my list though.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Caramel Sweetheart by Yumchaa
4043 tasting notes

ANother tea from Scheherazade that I am having the pleasure of trying. This one? I think i’m going to hold off rating until i have another go at it. It’s pretty weak sauce at the moment and i’m not sure why. I can almost taste the cocao notes if i focus really hard while i’m drinking it, but the base is almost not really there. I’m going to chalk this one up to not having steeping directions…and no, yumchaa doesn’t feel the need to share them on their website either. bah!

Scheherazade

I usually leave it 3 or 4 minutes, and make sure to stir really well. That’s all the advice I can offer, really. I started out badly with it, and got better after a bit of trial and error.

:) yeah tried to pay attention to your notes on it since i knew you’d had a bit of a fussy time with it

drank Courtesan by Yumchaa
4043 tasting notes

OH man. thank you to Scheherazade for sending me some of this one. I am LOVING this! It’s tangy, it’s sweet, it’s fruity, it’s zingy…it’s just a really nice tisane! I’m looking forward to steeping the last of what i have as a cold brew just to see how incredible that might be for summer.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

drank Mint Chocolat by Steep City Teas

I had this one again and i just can’t seem to figure the chamomille out. It doesn’t add much, and just gets into my brew basket. Ah well, happy to have tried another steep city tea!

:( Most people seem to really enjoy this blend. I guess it’s not for everyone.

no need to please everyone as long as you please some people! :)

drank Wonders of Kashmir by Della Terra Teas

Another meh tea from this morning. I’ll have to see if it gets any better when i have time to sit and drink and log at the same time but this is a little better than snow fairy imo, though not by much.

drank Snow Fairy by Della Terra Teas

ick. Backlog from earlier so not too sure what i recall, but i do not this wasn’t all that tasty or refreshing. I’m going to try it as a cold brew and see if that helps, otherwise, into the swap box it goes. there is a pineappley taste to this but its slightly artificial and now what i hoped it would be.

SIPDOWN! backlog from earlier today. Note to self, this is so much better at slightly warmer than room temperature lol. Happy to have this back in the house temporarily and it will likely come and go in my cupboard.

drank Queen of Berries by Tea Palace
4043 tasting notes

Backlog from this morning. Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me! This is a super wonderful delicious tea. There’s no bitterness to this and it’s very much what i want the majesteas leslievill strawberry patch tea to be. This is the taste of fresh juicy delicious strawberries! now of course my delemna is whether to have the last of this cold or hot. oh man.

drank Mint Cacao Tea by Herbal Infusions
4043 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! Figure i might as well finish this one off today since it’s the straight cacao that i prefer. Not that I have any of that one left but hey, not to worry! Still enjoying this one and it’s nice to start my day off with a few good teas (i’m ignoring the first two i drank today). Costco trip later this afternoon once my other half is off of work. I don’t really want to go since it’s a little chillier out there today but i figure i’ll just pack some tea and get through it.

choco mint! thank you :)

omg costco… I love to hate and hate to love that place. Score any bulk deals? 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.
