drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia

having a cup of this tonight as i want to finish this up before i get the last of my pineapple oolong from Butiki. Sad part is, i for sure prefer Stacy’s version to this one. It’s juicier and way more delicious :( This one isn’t bad, but it’s just not as fresh as i want it to be.

boychik

I found it too mild

Sil

yes that’s probably the right word…mild heh i think the coconut interferes :)

Farewell my delicious tea. I will miss you, but you’ll always have a fond place in my tea memories. Thanks again for all the fantastic teas you brought to us Stacy! Last cup(s) of this while i organise things tonight.. what fun!

Ysaurella

Oh my God…I still have some but can’t imagine my last cup of this one.
I need to find somewhere its perfect twin…

Sil

i haven’t found it yet… some of the teas from taiwan tea crafts are close…but not the same. :(

Ysaurella

yes I was looking at this brand as I remember you sent me a lovely sun Moon lake tea but not sure which one could be the closer of Stacy’s one

Sil

if i get a chance i’ll try and look and see what i can remember. it’ll be missing some notes that stacys tea has..but they’re tasty. And you can get sample sizes (25g) which is nice..

Terri HarpLady

I made this one up as a latte the other night and it was delicious! I still don’t think i need more of this beyond my little sample size, but it’s a tasty tea to have for the time being.

mmmm still loving this tea a lot. I think i actually prefer this one to the creme brulee from bayswater, though i DO love mixing the two together. :)

drinking this every day is a surefire sign to me that i’ve missed my tea cupboard. I have some serious organising to do this weekend in terms of my cupboard, so i may just start tonight since my other half is off at a viking metal concert and may not be around until tomorrow evening after work haha

CrowKettle

Good old viking metal. Good luck with the organizing!

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
5241 tasting notes

sadly, i’m dropping the rating on this one a little because the harvest that i have in my cupboard at the moment is NOWHERE near the delicious tea that this one used to be. These days it seems to be falling a little flat, which makes me sad, though i am happy that yu lu has increased in the yum department, so i still have two great teas from verdant ni the black department that i love. Also goes to show that sometimes it’s worth trying different harvests :)

caile

I hope the new harvest is good – I preordered a bit to try.

Sil

i have 4oz of the spring harvest… i’m going to be SUPER sad if it doesn’t taste like the one i fell in love with

Terri HarpLady

I really loved zhu rong, & I have plenty of it, but its not the same tea as it originally was.

caile

I think my last batch was from last year although I can’t remember what season – it is finished now but was so good. Are you drinking last years harvest now?

Sil

pondering i think i’m drinking some from last year’s latter harvest… lol

caile

lol, ok ;)

Sil

but last years earlier harvest was the one i liked..i think… i’ve got to start writing down the harvest on my bags…i just always forget :(

mmm evening cup of this last night and it was perfect. I think i managed to pick up just the right amount of this so that i’ll be done with it about the time as my little sample is used up. :)

drank Vanilla Cookie by Blue Teapot

I’ll have to try this one in a mug..because the first time i had it, i loved it. This last time i had it, it was meh..and the only difference that i can tell is really the mug versus travel mug. SOOOO jury is still out on this one haha

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
5241 tasting notes

Another one from yesterday and man, it’s incredible how different this tea is from the first time i tried it and didn’t like it. NOW, i really enjoy it and i’m finding less enthusiasm for my zhu rong…which is sad because i’d really just love all three of the black teas i have from verdant lol

Upping the rating a little for this batch. delicious!

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.
