drank Ten by Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee

Sadly…ten is a disappointment. It pretty much tastes like an average cup of black tea with maybe an echo of banana/chocolate. There’s not much there though, and it’s hard to tell that this is supposed to be a flavoured blend. sigh… how very disappointing. I love 10…but i don’t love this tea.

If you’re going to drink Amy…you really should drink her with Rory. This one might be my favourite of the blends so far, and not just ’cause rory makes me happy. I am a fan of the black/green vanilla with just a hint of sweet potato. Yep…i can get behind this one.

That one sounds similar to the Bilbo Brew I was so in love with, also conceived by Cara McGee.

I think i need to steep this one longer. I’m always a little wary of Adagio’s black so I tend to keep the temperature under boiling and the timing shorter. But i think with this one, i can steep it longer. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s clearly a chai ish sort of tea. Because of the under steep, it’s not as flavourful as i want it to be, but it isn’t a bad sort of taste. On the whole, trending towards being good. But i’ll rate this next time when i steep for longer!

I’ve only tried a few of the Dr Who selections.

drank Laoshan Village Chai by Verdant Tea

Almost done this one! I am not having much success lately, sipping down teas but i am at least getting around to making more of a dent in some of my larger quantity teas, drinking older stuff and sampling things that i need to figure out if i like/don’t like them. heh This falls into the LIKE category, though i suspect i only need to be picking up a bag here and there as i tend not to drink this in summer. it’s a winter sort of cooler temperature drink for me :) still terribly yummy though!

drank Qing Pin Black Tea by Yezi Tea

mmmm morning tea from forever ago! I was cleaning up my cupboard over the weekend and realised that i had a small bag of this that i could tuck into my easily accessible teas even though it isn’t one of my older teas. I haven’t had this one in a while and was once again reminded at first sip, why i love Yezi teas. Just a delicious, smooth inviting black tea for this wonderful wintery day filled with snow!

Terri HarpLady

Yay for Yummy Yezi!

started the morning out with this one…i think tomorrow i’ll do the same but as a latte…just because!

Nxtdoor

A pu’erh latte? :/

Sil

oh yes! i’ve had rousing success for some that i’ve done… it’s just like a black tea latte in the grand scheme of things :)

TastyBrew

Special Dark makes one of the best tea lattes ever. Crazy what a little milk and honey do to this.

Garret

Or as I like to call it: a “cha”-tte!!! I love the special dark!!

Another tea from this morning…on another note anyone else getting tired of hitting the save…having the website freeze, expecting your note to be gone and then checking your tealog and finding it there? Happens almost every other tea for me heh. Enjoyed this one today as it was what i was in the mood for, an average every day sort of black tea.

Terri HarpLady

I’ve been reminding myself to copy each post before I hit the button, just in case. About have of my posts have frozen, but then it turned out to post anyway, like you said.

So…i’ve had a long day at work today. I’m still trying to get work done/clean up things today so that MAYBE tomorrow i can work an actual 7.5 hour day. Wouldn’t that be lovely? This was what i had for breakfast, before leaving the house, and i suspect what i will have again tomorrow. I actually really want to try this as a latte, but we need more milk in the house.

Apparently I also need to write this note in my sleep according to Shmiracles lol. But that’s ‘cause she’s silly. No sipdowns tonight i’m afraid since i’m not even having tea tonight. it’s all Rye and Coke ’cause that makes work WAY more relaxing and fun this late in the evening :)

drank Cottage Night by T by Daniel

I suspect that some would refer to this as being similar to forever nuts by David’s Tea, at least from what i can remember it tasting like. I like the colour of this brew..it’s a happy place for me today. I like this one…a hint of cinnamon, some almond flavours kicking around..yep works for me tonight AND that puts me at 170 for the evening.

i think i can, i think i can, i think i can….

Sil

on a random other note.. i had orange path in my cupboard, but not logged..i clicked on the link and it took me to old steepster…. http://steepster.com/teas/river-tea/43840-orange-path but i had a review in my tasting log of that tea, but in NEW steepster…

yyz

Sil for some weird reason there are three orange path teas u der river tea. Your review is here http://steepster.com/teas/rivertea/43838-orange-path.

Sil

Yeah, sorry I did find it but it was weird seeing old steepster heh

yyz

Weird for me it came up as new steepster but no review. It’s like a ghost of steepster past.

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.
