this was a sipdown from nicole the other day. dying here from being sick and working 12+ hours days this week since sunday…can’t tell you anything about this tea besides the fact that i took 2 mins to put it on my shopping list. that should be all you need if you know the kind of teas i like.

thanks so much nicole

Nicole

I’m glad you liked the Shang teas. :)

You poor thing. You really work too many long day. :(

this week has been awful. we had a weekend release so i worked sunday and my smallest work day this week has been 11 hours. thankfully though, i’m on vacation next week and a friend of ours is coming up from florida so we’re taking him to ottawa, montreal and then up to the cottage for boardgames, tea and hiking and swimming :) and ice cream….and barbecueing lol

Nicole

That sounds like a good and overdue break. :)

drank Birthday Cake by Butiki Teas

So final verdict on this one? I don’t want it. Not, i don’t like it because i DO like the flavouring but to me this is really just creamy eggnog without the bits that make it creamy eggnog. IE. it’s a delicious tea…but it’s not really birthday cake to me (except in how pretty it is). I love that it’s a herbal…love that it’s light and refreshing but it’s not cake. Do i think it’s an enjoyable cup that wouldn’t disappoint people? Sure! but i’d rather stock creamy eggnog in my cupboard than this one and save my “herbal” slots for teas like stacy’s peppermint patty and rootbeerfloat! :)

totally not sure why i called this a sipdown the other day, but uh it wasn’t. now it is. hahaha either way, good times to be had with this tea :)

LOL, I called a sipdown on something that wasn’t yesterday. Also, I took a sipdown on a tea, then I realized it wasn’t even on my inventory list, so it didn’t count in the numbers.

another several glasses of this tonight with dinner. Soooo good! I really do love this as a cold brew tea…way more than hot brewed, although hot was pretty decent as well :)

sometimes the days are long…sometimes they’re short. today was a long one. I can pretty much recall nothing about the teas i had this morning besides the fact that they were all excellent picks! Luckily i have more of this one to have another cup or two of.

TERRI! I love this one! Great choice my tea sister! I had this today as my “what new tea am i going to drink to get close to some more sample sizes tea” and it was super delicious. Certainly not what i expected in my tea mug this morning. Plus i love how cute the curls of tea are :) it’s malty and sweet and just downright delicious. I don’t know what else to say because i drank it so long ago, but this is one i’d order again for sure. I think Cavocorax might enjoy this one a bunch too…maybe :)

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I might be in love with this as a cold brew. I have a giant pitcher of this in my fridge at the moment and it’s how i fully intend to drink the rest of this up as i love this as a cold brew. I had three glasses of this tonight with dinner and with a splash of lemonade added to it, it’s super perfect.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Wedding Impérial by Mariage Frères

soooo delicious. I had this in the morning and it was a fantastic cup of happy for a super busy day in which i was still exausted (am…) from the weekend’s activities. I’ll be sad when this is fully gone from my cupboard.

Ysaurella

awwww I miss this one ! I didn’t rebuy it yet just to be reasonable as I have a lot of chocolate teas…but this one is definitively my fav

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.
