I’ve had this one before courtesy of terri and while i enjoy the brewed tea, especially with a splash of maple syrup, the aroma is hard for me to stomach. Something about the wet leaf in water just makes me not want to drink the tea. it’s unfortunate because i DO enjoy the tea, but so hard to get passed the aroma heh

This one from terri is more up my alley. Spring 2015 is the version she sent me. It’s not a bold malty tea, but there is more going on here to make it a more complex brew than the last tea. This has a great smooth taste, but without becoming bold and dark. There’s maybe some hints of sweetness here…but sweet like a rich caramel versus a fruit. Interesting tea to try. Thanks terri!

Another from the box ox delights that Terri sent me. This one is interesting, but not a purchase for me. it’s got a floral like sweetness to it that isn’t my favourite. I don’t get any chocolate notes out of this one…just a thinner tasty brew. I prefer my bold delicious malty teas :) Happy to have tried it through!

meh. this is sweet..but the base is hidden….i get more pear than apple…and the overall flavour is muted and tastes artificial. Glad i picked up just enough for a cup.

Nicole sent this one my way and it.is. lovely. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but i’ve had other justeas that i loved, so i wasn’t worried. this is sweet, but also smooth. Just a really nice fall black tea for today. Little more to play with so yay for that!

pulled this one out today to have again. While not my favourite Damn fine tea, it’s still up there as delicious :)

Mike

I still have to try their teas, which one would you recommend for starters?

Sil

Depends on what sort of tea you like. They have a couple smokey ones, this is lighter and more like a darjeeling… ideally…find someone to trade with to sample a few and then pick up your favourite. :) I really like oktoberfest, holiday bend, black sunshine, double knit…used to love tiger…

Mike

Nice, thanks! I eyed that Tiger Assam before. The others all look awesome! I’ll probably just buy some of the Double Knit…I’m so easy to please, I’m sure I’ll love them all, haha.

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.
