i feel like there is WAY too much going on in this tea for you to really be able to actually taste all the things going on in this tea. it’s not a terrible tea or anything but when i look at what’s in here, and focus on the taste, it all kind of blends together to make “brown” lol

thanks again variaTEA (can you tell i’m finally getting to your sample box this weekend? lol) this one was actually quite pleasant. I’d need to be in the mood for a lapsang as this is a little more smokey than not smokey but it was a nice cup. hints of mint and…something else? made it more interesting than just a boring old lapsang heh

thanks again VariaTEA as these have been fun to try. this might be my favourite of the lot so far, except that there’s a bitterness in this one that i dislike. it also leaves me mouth feeling super dry. heh. BUT all that aside, this is a nice enough chai like sort of tea with just a hint of something sweet running through it. apparently that’s caramel but i am just not finding that..just “sweet” to me.

this is another from variaTEA and while this one is minty fresh, i’m getting zero hazelnut, if that’s what this is supposed to be. to me this is just a cup of mint tea…with a different smell than normal lol ah well, it’s been a refreshing cup :)

VariaTEA sent this one my way. All i can say is that this is not a tea for me lol blerg!

VariaTEA

It wasn’t for me either. I wanted to love it though.

Roswell Strange

I didn’t like this one either :( But wanted to so badly because it was Wash… He deserves a better blend. Something weird and fruity to go with his personality; not terribly floral and “fru fru”. He shoulda been like a Pina Colada type tea, heavy on the pineapple :P

Memily

Lol Sil I love your notes.

Sil

Memily… Well glad they keep someone amused lol

VariaTEA sent this one my way and so today i thought it would be fun to go through as many of the Serenity Fandom teas as i could. This one was from earlier today as i’m still working ugh Sadly this one was just a muddling of flavours to me. i didn’t get much in the way of orange or chocolate..just a blend of a vaguely fruity sort of adagio black tea. :( it wasn’t bad but there wasn’t much distinct in here for me

I had this one earlier today as well when i wanted something a little lighter. This one was sent my way by omgsrsly likely via missB?? This one isn’t bad but it’s a little on the light side. While i’m not overly a fan of green teas, when i do have them, i like it when they’re a little more in your face in terms of their “green” flavour. this one seems almost subdued or something heh overall though, not bad just nothing to knock me off my feet.

OMGsrsly

I’m pretty sure it’s via MissB. :)

this one comes to me courtesy of variatea sadly this one falls short for me as it really just tastes a little like floral water. BUT glad i got the chance to try it out. Thanks VariaTEA!

VariaTEA

I had the same experience but I figured you haven’t tried it yet so might as well pass some along :P

Sil

yep! i appreciate it haha

this one came to me via YYZ and was another early morning, get me through this day, tea. This yunnan is a fruity sort of yunnan. On the whole i find that i prefer the sort of malty, chocolate, cocoa-y sort of yunnan. that’s not to say that this one isn’t bad, but it’s not the type that i prefer. it does reinforce that i need to get time to place an order with Capital teas though, as there are a number of tea there that i would likely really enjoy. Thanks for sharing YYZ!

This was a free sample in the order that cavocorax sent me so i had it way early this morning in the hopes that it would carry me through. sadly this has the same or similar base to other HI black teas and i am not a fan.

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.
