bready, smooth tasty tea. heh. A non smoky version of ZSXZ. I haven’t tried this version from Yunnan sourcing, so happy to see it in my box from my tea sister. Enjoyed this one while finishing up the last of the household crap in MUCH nicer, sunny yet cool weather. Here’s hoping fall is here to stay and that the humidity is over!

Yes, this weather is definitely nicer than the disgusting humidity/heat of the summer.

mmmmm thank you terri! delicious malty goodness right here folks. This is the autumn 2015 version and it makes me happy. a little sweetness in the back half of the sip, but otherwise a really smooth, malty blend, with hints of cacao.

Terris sent me a bit of these to have – Spring 2015 (too lazy to create a new entry). This was a malty, super smooth delicious cup from this morning. I’m a fan of this one.

noms. Thanks for letting me revisit this one Terri! I had a fantastic cup of this today while cleaning up. Almost makes me want to order more, but i’ll wait…patiently…until i get closer to my sipdown goal for this year. Just a few 100grams left to go! (here’s hoping i hit it before the end of the year so i can make a few purchases heh)

Going to have to agree with Nicole on this one – fairly average ceylon, great packaging (i love ephelants!). Pulled this one out this morning to get my going – our house has been a bit of a disaster area as i was away for 2 wks and my other half didn’t have time to do much. So this weekend was very much a get up, get cleaning and organising while he was at work and continue it in to the rest of the day. Hoping to get back to normal so that we can enjoy next weekend!

drank Black Currant Tisane by Travelling Tea
7966 tasting notes

noms. Another adventure from my tea sister. this one is pretty tasty – a little sweet, a little sour and nicely done on the black currant front. I think i like the black berry tisane i’ve had more, but this is a very nice change from the usual fruit tisanes out there. darker and slightly mysterious…or something like that anyway haha.

Terri sent this one my way – surprising in some respects because it doesn’t seem like her cup of tea heh. The dry aroma of this one is downright amazing… creamy caramel, mocha…. noms.
Brewed (4 mins) this is a little less intense than the aroma would suggest – there’s a little of the honeybush taste that comes through, but it doesn’t interfere with the deliciousness. I think this one will be worth trying as a latte at some point as well. thankfully i’ve got more than enough to play with this, thanks to the generosity of my tea sister!

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.
