Another from last night and one i MIGHT consider picking up a bit more of. I find that i have enjoyed drinking this, and even when it’s cooled i still like finishing off the cup. The lime is tasty and i think it might be interesting with a little sweetner as well.

Final Count yesterday: 82

This was another from last night that i finished up. There’s a package waiting for me in mail jail tonight, so i wanted to get through a few more of my samples. Plus, i still need to figure out what tea i want for free from David’s from last year. This is ok…just not my favourite. Like many of david’s teas, I’m good with just a few cups and then i don’t need any more.

Cold brew of this yesterday since i’m sending the last of this over to Anlina along with a few other treats. Cold brew this has a sweetness to it that i’m not sure i like. I think i prefer this hot brewed, and then cooled if i’m having a cold brew of this. Dropped the rating on this a little because as i’ve had more of it, I like it a little less than i used to, but it’s still a nice tea as i like having herbals in my cupboard.

another from MissB while this one IS a little tart, it’s also very much raspberry. Not my favourite of the bunch, but i’ve been really impressed with how tasty these bagged teas are.

MMMM…. Pulled this one out to try today based on the reviews i read yesterday and this one IS a good one. It’s the right balance of malty, sweet and smooth that i really like. aaand work just totally interrupted that. 4 hours later i’m uh… drinking other things lol

Another that i picked up the other day from David’s. Surprisingly, i really like this one. it is a pretty good lime flavoured tea without having that bitterness i don’t like. win!

haha sooo brewing this one at home, i don’t like it as much as the sample i had in store, but i certainly don’t dislike it as much as some. there’s a taste on the back end of it though, that i’m not loving. oh well, at least i only have a little bit left. gotta love being able to have 10g samples :)

in SHARP contrast to the other nasty cup i had..this one is actually quite pleasant for a bagged tea. I don’t get a lot of rhubarb from this one but the blackcurrant and vanilla is nice for a bagged tea. Certainly nicer than a lot of the teas we have out here in bagged for, that’s for sure! thanks again missB!

The box is pretty.

I think rhubarb would be a difficult flavor to master in tea.

Sil

stacy did it..with my tea

Well Stacy is just awesome! Wish she would change her mind & keep selling tea, even if just a few blends as she had time.

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.
