Sip down!(231) you know what’s tasty? This as a tea latte :) finished off the last of this in that way since I thought the flavour combination might be extra delicious with creamy milk :)

Shmiracles

drank SoHo Blend by Harney & Sons

SIPDOWN! (232) Another one from cavocorax I can’t remember if i asked her to send this to me or it was a random H&S tea because i hadn’t tried it yet but hey..it’s here and i’m drinking it up! :) I didn’t really pay attention to the flavouring of the tea, just brewed it up and took my first sip. I’m happy to say that my tastebuds aren’t totally wonky because this was for sure a chocolate and coconut tea!

What i like about this is how the chocolate and coconut are really well balanced in this. Neither one is over powering the other, which is good for me because it means i can drink it and am enjoying it! I’m not overly a fan of coconut in teas but with the chocolate it’s really nice and not the least bit cloying or too sweet.

Thanks again Cavo!

Chocolate & coconut…sigh…

Cavocorax

You want some of this too, Terri? :P I have my tea spreadsheet open ATM – easy to make notes.

Terri HarpLady

Oh, BTW, the phoenix pearl from Zen tea arrived, thanks! Strangely, it doesn’t look like pearls at all! Anyway, no rush, & feel free to start suggesting things for YOUR next box, lol

Cavocorax

They don’t? They’re round aren’t they? Maybe I sent you something else? (Strange)
But I’ll add SoHo to the list. Lemme know if you want more, and I’ll eagerly eye your tasting notes too.

Terri HarpLady

ah, I see, they are very small pearls. :D
I’m sure they are delicious.

Cavocorax

They were my intro to black pearls so I was blown away. But I’m certain teavivre etc have better versions.

Terri HarpLady

I don’t know if they are better, but the pearls I’m sending you are the size of small marbles!

drank Blueberry Wonderland by Majesteas
4927 tasting notes

Not sure i like this one. I’ll have to play with the steepin parameters because while this smells delicious, it’s a little bitter. So i’ll try cooling it down next time and steeping for a shorter time to see how it goes.

Terri HarpLady

Although I love blueberries, I almost never like anything that is blueberry flavored. bleck

Sil

well that’s because it’s never like what blueberries actually taste like heh. some blueberry flavoured things i like….don’t think i’m liking this one though

Indigobloom

Oh wow I totally thought this was a green, when you said bitter and toning down the temp… hum.
Well if you end up hating it after all, I’ll take some of your hands :)

Sil

You can have some regardless…add it to the spreadsheet

Indigobloom

yay! happy happy dance :D

Small cup of this to cleanse my palate while sitting on meeting this morning. Still tasty even if its a green :)

Had a cup of this a while back, mostly because I had the mint chocolate matcha :) that’s how I roll yo! Haha mostly this was chosen as part of my effort to sip down my 52 teas stash because I have tooooo many of those that I’ve been hoarding. :) still enjoying this one, though likely not a reorder as I seem to have somehow accumulated a large number of chocolate mint teas. I find too that I prefer the herbal versions over the black base…

drank Mint Chocolate Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4927 tasting notes

mmmmm Tasty! Full review will come later when i have a chance to drink this straight but as a latte, it’s delicious! I picked up the distinctive version of this, but i think robust would be the way to go. I like my chocolate mint to be strong! This is a pretty delicious :)

Indigobloom

Hmmm. What if you mixed the chocolate and peppermint matcha? I’ll have to bring mine sometime so we can compare :)

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
4927 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (233) Thank you cavocorax for sending some of this my way. This is a weird blend for me. I totally get the almond taste, and that’s delicious but then the cranberry taste is like HEY! HEY YOU! Yeah..i’m tlaking to YOU! LOOK AT ME! and of course i’m like “but i don’t wannnaaaaaa”

Yeah, that happened. True story and all that jazz. haha ok but really? I can see how a large number of people would like this tea. I think though, I prefer my rich creamy teas to not have fruit in them. It’s like those fruit and nut chocolate bars…what’s up with that? You’re enjoying the delicious creamy chocolate taste…the nuts blend in nicely with it and then there’s this fruity. right in the middle of all that goodness. BAH! and i like fruit…but not when it interupts my deliciousness…it’s like nuts in brownies.. ick. why ruin a good thing!

LOL so anyway this tea? I love the almond/creamy/deliciousness but i could do without the cranberriness of it all…which means this probably isn’t the team for me but its not a BAD cup of tea :) Thanks Cavo!

sounds yum :P

Cavocorax

Mmmm. Nuts with brownies……(I want!)

Having a cup of this as it’s a milder black that doesn’t demand my attention this morning either. I’ve got a ton of things to finish up before the day really gets going and i’m in back to back meetings so i wanted a few cups of tea to kick off the day that i could just absent mindedly drink. I still enjoy this tea, though as i’ve branched out and tried a number of other teas, i think i like this one a little less now. I haven’t yet had a chance to drink it gongfu style yet though, and i suspect i’d get more out of it by doing so. Overall though, i am happy with this purchase :)

drank Keemun by Mandala Tea
4927 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! (234) Thanks again to terriharplady for being so awesome! I’ve really enjoyed this one from Mandala even though it’s not my all time fav keemun. This is a cup that i could enjoy most days because it’s that kind of tea that doesn’t deman attention but is still flavourful and is enjoying to drink. I’m working from home today so look out cupboard! i hope haha

Terri HarpLady

I think I’m finally gonna get some serious tea drinking done today too. I’ve just spent the morning sipping & relaxing while 2 of my ladies practiced duets for a performance they have this sunday. I didn’t actually have to do anything, except help with the counting of a few measures of one song. Otherwise, relax. I’m so glad this is my job! :D

Sil

Yay!

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
4927 tasting notes

Final tea of the evening. Even though i still enjoy this quite a bit, it won’t likely be a permanent to my collection. I’ll still pick it up from time to time but i’ve grown to love the lime chiffon more from della terra and the orange cream even more than that!

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.
