5793 Tasting Notes

…..and that’s a wrap on these two teas. sooo good as a latte tonight!

Even with the teas I received today i’m still only at 143 :) that still buys me some time to get down a bit further in my cupboard before my butiki order arrives (15+teas!)

Cavocorax

Uhhh.. You do realize I’m bringing samples too right?

MissB

Heh. She’s getting even more from me in our swap. This will get fun really fast! :)

Sil

Yeah…I’m pretty much screwed lol the BBB box is also going to be arriving….was well as possibly a swap with CHAroma. Dexter has teas for me too….lol but hey…gotta keep working on my goals as if they can be accomplished! Halving my cupboard took patience and time! Haha

Terri HarpLady

Yep, there are teas headed your way from St. Louis!!
Everyone send Sil more tea! We gotta trash her numbers so she quits making me look like a sipdown slacker, Mwahahahaha!

Sil

you ARE a sipdown slacker…nothing you do to me will change that hahaha

Cavocorax

Hahahahaha. I’m with Terri! Who else can send Sil samples? I’ve got her address! :P

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, I don’t think I’ve had a sipdown in a few weeks.
I also haven’t counted my teas, or printed up my monthly tea collection inventory this month. I’m just too busy right now!
But I’m not too busy to drink them, & I’ll get a serious tea count by the end of the year, just in time to print up my Tea Collection Inventory on New Year’s Day! Just for the unofficial record, I suspect that I’m back up around 300+, LOL.

Sil

awe my post didn’t post.. what i tried to say was terri…you’ll be at 350+ with MY box that needs to come to you haha

Terri HarpLady

Oh well, the more tea the merrier :D

tea-sipper

I had this today as well but i’ve got to try it again. I was distracted at work and didn’t pay this it’s fullest attention. It seemed a bit weak but that may have been because i underleafed it.

drank Pina Colada Honeybush by 52teas
5793 tasting notes

sipdown! (139) Nearly through my remaining 52 teas, which was a mini goal of mine as well since i tend to hoard them. Only 3 left in my cupboard :) I enjoyed this one quite a bit as a honeybush tea, though i likely won’t end up restocking it. There are other flavours frank does much better that i MUCH prefer! :)

I’m drinking this over the course of the afternoon – gongfu style. I have trouble with some of verdant’s puerhs in that they all taste very similar and generic. I will add more later, but at the moment i am getting very little that others have gotten while sipping on this one.

Edit: yeah…future steeps left this tea closed off to me. oh well…there’s always another!

JustJames

afternoon? yeah….. i guess it is. morning!

Sil

Time difference goober!

drank Crème Brulee by Bayswater Tea Co.
5793 tasting notes

this + divine temptation, steeped in milk = OMGWTFYESPLS! :) seriously, the milk adds the right amount of creaminess to bring this all together in one giant delicious mess of tea goodness.

Fjellrev

Hell yeah!

OMGsrsly

I have the mixed teas up here as well because I rarely (never?) drink them separately…

Sil

Amariel

I’m out of the CB but have a little DT left. I like the idea of steeping in the milk. Yum.

drank Pu-Erh Gourmand by Dammann Freres

oh happy day… my love is back with me. Had a couple cups of this in the morning and it made the day better for being in it :)

ashmanra

I want this so badly. Guess I am placing an order!

JustJames

i have to say…. it’s alot better ordering with DF than MF… they’re faster, their prices are more reasonable, their shipping is more reasonable and they give samples.

Sil

I’ve never ordered from DF directly. I opted. For the cadeaux vendom place since shipping was only 8 euro.

So first off, this is one of the most unique teas that i’ve had the pleasure of opening up. FuzzyPeachkin sent some of this my way and i’m glad she did. First and foremost there are berries in here and ceder needles, which makes for an aroma reminiscent of hiking through the rockies as a kid.

Brewed as a black, this tea is very smooth and mellow with a slightly sweet taste hidden in among the cedar. I don’t get any smokiness from this like FuzzyP does – this is just a mellow brew that is much like drinking something that tastes the way cedar smells…but in a delicious way. I’m looking forward to drinking more of this.

Thank you FuzzyP for this unique tea :)

this may be headed for my swap list in short order. I had a cup of this to since i hadn’t had any in a really long time and couldn’t actually manage to finish the cup. I’m not sure if it’s the result of being slightly sick or because i’ve just grown out of it but i’ll give it one more shot before it goes on the chopping block. I know there are tons of others out there who would love it way more than i do today heh

Nicole

The Christmas tea I went to served this. Probably not Della Terra’s blend, but I really don’t know. It was definitely a black tea and tasted just like Della Terra’s blend. The tea room sells loose leaf teas in their own canisters and I know for a fact that some of them are from Harney & Sons, so maybe it isn’t a stretch to think they got this one from Della Terra. :) It was still good to me, though I will admit to having grown out of it somewhat and I wish they had offered more than just the one tea for the meal.

Sil

interesting heh. Yeah i’m fairly certain that i’m just over this. Which is OK. I thought of you today Nicole and i’m making cookies. If the recipe works i will share them with you because so far…the dough smells amaaaazing lol

Nicole

Oh… that’s unfortunate. Amazing smelling dough often doesn’t live long enough to become real cookies in my house. LOL But yes, do share!!

Fjellrev

This one is faaaar too sweet for me, and as I was making my way through my 1 oz. pouch, I’ll admit that it was getting harder and harder to finish.

JustJames

sil….. i am not even looking at that link. not going to happen.

Nicole

OMG I so didn’t even need to know about those. Just this morning my husband was saying I don’t make chocolate chip cookies nearly enough… I think these won’t fit into his definition of chocolate chip cookies, but I bet he’ll like them… :)

Sil

So. Good. :) now to work on improving the recipe mwahahaha

keychange

oh…my…I can’t even.

Amariel

I liked my small sample a while back. I’d be interested in trying more, for those who don’t want it.

Amariel

As for the link…I sent it to my friend who makes cookies when we visit him, and he said, “Yes, yes we will have to make these when you visit.”

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.
