5241 Tasting Notes
Another morning tea from today…i opted to have this since birthday cake from stacy kept reminding me of this one. It IS similar but not as much as my memory would have you believe. I still prefer this one a bunch since it’s got that depth from the actual tea that i like. Happy i’m still enjoying this one.

So i’m a little over whelmed today in terms of being both a) exausted and b) feeling like my cupboard is totally out of control. Not sure why today feels that way since i’m not much higher after getting my orders in, than i have been in the past. 223 if you’re curious.
I still have a few teas left from the travelling teabox that I want to try, that i don’t want to parcel out and add to my cupboard. Same thing in principle i know except this saves a bag.
So the tea…I really wanted to try this one because it’s from a local shop near Dexter and because it’s one of the most interesting looking teas i’ve seen…AND it’s apparently her favourite tisane…that she didn’t bother adding to steepster! cough So i dont know what’s in this except some green stuff and yellow stuff and purple things…and it smell great! This actually comes as close as i’ve seen to the “fruit tea” i had while i was in Beijing. Seriously…it’s fan-freaking-delicious! I may just have to beg dexter to buy me some and send it my way or something. or i could just buy some stuff…since i took two seconds just now to go look at their website lol
Sooo i’m rambling i have a head ache and haven’t had dinner and really just want to go to bed. but this tea? it’s like a spot of funshine. yep. funshine.
Sip down! Mostly because I knew I had only one sil sized cup left and because I’ve added a few teas to my cupboard from the travelling tea box so that I can sample them later and not hold up the box. Took enough for a cup or so (maybe two to share with Terri) and ill sample those later. It also lets me get a sense of how much room is left or isn’t, in the box. I was going to try and fit things into a smaller box since there was room at the top, but I have too many things to add to share lol
This one is an occasional rebus for me though I like lime chiffon and orange and cream better. Sometimes you just need a little lemon on your life :)

Dexter added this from a local tea company and it is YUMMY! Seriously…i just want to take the whole bag. That’s saying a lot too since it has mate in it, which i don’t like. I think this would make one hell of a kickass latte in the winter. It’s a creamy delicious treat. I can smell the almond as i’m drinking this one, but it doesn’t translate into that artificial tasty almond flavouring that i like. Instead it’s closer to a more real almond taste in my opinion. There isn’t enough chocolate on this, but the almond and caramel blend nicely to make a deliciously creamy tasty cup.
that goes amazingly well with the pumpkin spice muffins i just made… MMMMM
