drank Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas
4026 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

Thanks to kittenna for sharing some of this. The dry smell of this tea is pretty spot on to how i remember rainbow sherbet. However, after brewing it, it tastes more like a swampy mixture of randomw fruity citrusy flavours. Not something i’m a fan of, and even the addition of s bit of sugar didn’t help much. While i’m glad to have tried it, that’s as far as i need to go with this.

drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
4026 tasting notes

Sip down! Thank you to kittenna for this one. So I’m really enjoying the pear flavour in this one. I also really like the way that it smells. What I don’t seem to get out of this is anything remotely caramel. And, if i concentrate too hard on the taste, that weirdly rooibos taste comes to the forefront of things and ruins the good thing that I almost had going with this tea. Hmmm… Too bad. Just to have the chance to have this, but still not my perfect pear tea.

Kittenna

Yes. I wish this flavouring was with a not-rooibos base. Honeybush would be great. And caramel/caramelized flavours weren’t really appearing either. But in terms of pear flavour??? This one’s pretty high up there!

Sipdown! The last little bit of this is going out in a swap! I’m not entirely sure how different this is from lime chiffon. I think I prefer more of the lime chiffon because its a bit more tart than this one. Ill need to do a taste test between the lime and the lemon chiffon but I think I lean slightly more towards the lemon chiffon. What I like most about these is that the chiffons from della terra all steep well forever and you never get that rooibos taste.

drank Bubbly by DAVIDsTEA
4026 tasting notes

Thank you Raritea! SIPDOWN!

Haha Raritea graciously offered up a sample of this one for me to try. I figure she’s doing well in single handedly trying to get me to try the entire David’s tea menu. To be fair she DID get me to buy 100g of lime gelato!

This tea? It’s not half bad. It REALLY smells like champagne in dry form, but luckily that goes away when you drink it. Not that I have issues with champagne, and this IS bubbly tea, but it was a little weird smelling.

In liquid form this is much more a peach kind of tea with floral notes that are just slightly off putting. Not really my cup of tea. However! I apprecaite getting to knock another David’s tea off my list!

drank Caramel Creme by Della Terra Teas
4026 tasting notes

Took this out and about with me today. Even on the weekend I can’t seem to get away from work issues! Since it wasn’t a holiday in the US we for sure had system issues AGAIN and i was for sure sitting in a craft show taking care of system problems. So glad i had some tea with me. Picked this up recently as it’s not a bad little tea to get occasionally from della terra. Not one i need stocked ALL the time but it’s a decent one to cycle through occasionally.

drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons
4026 tasting notes

Sipdown! Wootwoot! I figured that I needed to finish the last cup of this or I’d continue to hold on to it forever, not wanting to finish it. But this weekend? It’s all about those one or two cup samples! That and attempting to try all the remaining swap teas I’ve recently picked up along with tea orders. Mostly so that I can a) get my cupboard down to a more manageable size and b) figure out if there are any teas I need to swap out….52 teas I’m looking at you!

Really having a good time with this blend. It’s very much an every day black tea for me. Th kind of tea that I could have every morning and not get bored of, but not be like OH MY GOD! YES! yES! :)

Thanks to hesper june for this one, its been great!

drank Pleine Lune by Mariage Frères
4026 tasting notes

Sipdown! Thank you ysaurella for this one! I have really enjoyed getting to sample this one. It’s not my favourite of the batch that she sent my way but it is for sure one of my top picks from her. The cherry notes trailing in the background of the sip are what makes it for me. It’s not an overly fruity tea at first sip and then bam! Hello cherry almond! :)

Here’s to a great Good Friday! Full of tea and being out in the sun….soonish ;)

Marcel Duchamp

This one is on my wishlist. Sounds so good.

Terri HarpLady

drank Jour de Fête by Betjeman and Barton
4026 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! Thank you again ysaurella for this one. I think the contrast between this and the smokey taste i’m also drinking makes this tea tastes even lovelier this morning. The sweetness in this one makes the spiciness pop just a little more this morning and blends into a delicious cup for this morning.

drank Russian Maple Souchong by Tealux
4026 tasting notes

I figured i’d try some of the new teas that I recently picked up to figure out if i needed to find good homes for them or if i wanted to keep them around to love and squeeze and call them george.

I’m going to have to agree with Kittenna on this one in that there is really no maple flavouring from this. It’s a toned down smokey tea with a small bit of slightly sweet but yet not kind of thing happening. It’s not a BAD tea, but i was hoping for more of a maple taste from it. I think this one will be a good one for cooking and even for the occasional cup, though i might toss some maple syrup in there just to see how that tastes…

i love the way ian describes tea that i drink. it’s either: gross. or i get “it tastes like tea.” no matter what it is that he’s drinking. this one? it tastes like tea. that was left by a campfire. yeah. campfire tea.

Terri HarpLady

Tony has very little to say about most of the teas I drink. If it isn’t an earl grey (& he doesn’t seem to like the earls I like) or a plum oolong, it’s a “no”.

graceatblb

I may have to get some of this because it sounds yummy. I love smokey teas and the slight sweetness sounds pleasant.Maybe mixing it with Oh Canada tea will give more of the maple flavor.

Bio

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.
