drank Sun and Cloud Mist by 52teas

today, at some point, i’m going to be reorganising my cupboard. My tea order from bellocq arrived but i can’t let myself go crazy on those teas until i figure out how “bad” i’m doing with my paris teas lol. this was a sample included in the tea i received from 52 teas – DO NOT LIKE. in all fairness, i don’t love green teas but there was something in this one that reminded me of soap. Generally i’m ok with green and lemon, but something in this one doesn’t love me. the rest is off to the swap box for someone else to love.

Ha, I was wondering if this was really that old or if it was remade recently. Keep killing off those teas, yo.

Sil

this is brand new

drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

New version from Anne – gotta say that this one is much creamier and caramel like than frank’s original version, but the pumpkin piece is a little less here than franks. That being said, I’m kinda ok with that because the base here is so very lovely, and makes this a much less picky cup of tea.

bumping the rating up on this one – not sure if it’s just a time factor, in that when i first started drinking it, it was too fresh but this seems to have mellowed out and is tastier than when i first started drinking it. there’s much more flavour happening here which makes me a happier camper.

last tea from the past few days – still loving this one and happier still that i’ve now had enough of it to be able to close the lid again with my bag closure on the bag haha. I know i’ve said it before but this is a lovely tea and perfect for anyone who doesn’t like your smokey varietal of Lapsang. This is not a smokey tea. it’s just delicious. true story.

Final Count: 121

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA
7152 tasting notes

i rather enjoy this tea….to the point where i think i should pick up a bit more before it goes away, but then i can’t help but wonder if i’ll get tired of the taste, since i don’t usually love david’s teas enough to go through 100g+ Still though, i need to try this one as a latte since that’s apparently the way to do it heh

Kristal

If you like it as a latte you may end up going through the 100g+ very quickly ;)

Sil

i think subconsciously, that’s what i’m afraid of haha

Sil

I’ll have to try it today though since double points is happening right now for purchases

Kristal

I saw that! Thing is I’m working from 9-9 today (although, I do have a 2h break between 3-5…) and I don’t really “NEED” anything. I could get more banana nut bread though for lattes…

Kristal

But then again, I do only need 39 more points until free tea, which would only mean $20 purchase…

Fjellrev

When I got the email, I thought to do the exact same thing: try this tea again and make up my mind.

Sil

heh. great minds think alike

Sil

i have 27 points, so likely not worth it for me to buy anything since they all get reset in january (which i think is stupid)

Fjellrev

Yeah, I’m in the same boat. The reset almost discourages a person from buying, in a sense.

Sil

yeah. better for me to just wait and see if i can get more january 1st

Kristal

I also agree the reset in January is stupid. I can understand when you get the free tea offers how they expire after a few months, but to erase your points every year is kind of a scam. You could have 99 point ($99 of purchasing) which would count for nothing.

OMGsrsly

Yeah, last year I had about 90 points and didn’t buy anything else and lost them all. I think I’ve spent $20 in DavidsTea this year though. They totally lost me as a customer.

tigress_al

How do you know how many points you have?

OMGsrsly

They used to mail out links to the points thing? I have no idea how it works now.

Sil

Just sign in to your account. Used to be you had to ask for the link, now you just sign in

Alyssa

What?! I never got the email for the double points thing. I guess it’s because I have their newsletters turned off lol. I’d better fix that.

Alyssa

I checked and my subscription preferences were that I should receive their promotional emails. Maybe I should email them.

drank Golden Monkey by Hediard

Such a wonderful tea. I really need to organise my paris teas and figure out how i’m going to drink them all since it feels like i’m largely doing it one at a time, 100g by 100g lol. And there are a bunch that will end up being neglected if i do that. Maybe a rotation like dinosara or terri… hmm…

quick catch up time for me since i didn’t get to things last night (wine and whiskey wednesday). This one still makes me happy, though i am getting close-er to the end of the tin. Luckily it’s not a rare tin so i can always get more in the future. this + maple syrup = happy every day tea times.

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.
