drank Lemon Meringue Chai by 52teas

mmmmm thank you Cavocorax I was hesitant about picking this one up from Frank as i haven’t had a lot of success lately with the blends that i’ve picked up. So when Cavo offered to send some my way to try I was excited! I’ve missed my opportunity to pick this up, which is a little sad but i can safely say that this is pretty darn tasty!

I brewed this up in my usual 52 black base fashion – 2 mins, lower than boiling temperature. The tea is a nice lemoney chai. The spices aren’t too overpowering and the lemon stays present throughout the entire cup. Not that i typically add milk or honey to my chai’s – i think in the case it might make the cup even better with the addition of a little sweetness. I’ll have to try that next time!

thanks cavo!

drank Walter Bishop Honeybush by 52teas
4673 tasting notes

mini sipdown! (back to 250) I finished off the last of my first bag of this so that’s progress. I still have an entire unopened bag of this from a swap with JackieT because she didn’t want it. Me on the other hand? I love this for whatever reason. It’s strawberry cream and delicious!

….and if anyone has any they want to get rid of, just hollar! :)

I agree that stuff is good! I have a brand new pouch that I’m delaying opening until I finish some of my other teas. I know as soon as I open it, I’ll want to drink it every night.

sipdown on this one today as well! I’m very nearly out of the teas i brought back from china – well the ones that weren’t packaged in tins or individual servings. While it makes me sad, i’m also really glad that i’ve been able to get through them and enjoy them while i’ve had them…as well as share with others!

I enjoyed the ones you sent me! :)

drank Fruity Pu-erh by The Tea Grotto
4673 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! Man i really need to make sure i’m doing my one a day, so here’s to hopefully 1 of 2 or 3 tonight to make up for earlier this week :) not to mention the tea that arrived from cavo that bumped my numbers up.

I have enjoyed this one a bunch because it not only has a fun fruity flavour, but you can still taste the tea base underneath it all. I very much hate it when you might as well be drinking juice for all that the flavours hide the tea…especially with pu-erh. Thank you again kallieboo! for this one!

Mmmmm…..busted open the package of this one today and man, I’d almost forgotten how delicious this one is. I really do love it with this base and the lack of marshmallows. Such a good yummy cup of orange and chocolate!

I had this earlier today and while it wasn’t a bad black, there are so very many more out there that I vastly prefer to this one. I like my black morning teas to be bold and robust and announce their presence! This one did not….but it was still a decent cup of tea. Thanks Terri!

Terri HarpLady

yeah, this one doesn’t float my boat either…

drank Pineberry Honeybush by 52teas
4673 tasting notes

Another one from Cavocorax tonight since it’s time for a bit of “downtime” before bed. Watching the last half of an episode of black mirror. It’s a bbc series that has random shows that look at technology and how it’s changed our world or could change our world. It’s fiction and so far i’ve found each of the episodes relatively interesting in their own ways.

Funnily enough, shortly after this tea came out, i actually SAW a real pineberry in the grocery store and almost bought it just for kicks haha. I’m not sure how i feel about this one. It’s not BAD..but it doesn’t really taste like anything that i can accurately describe. It’s just kinda sweet, hanging out.

Note: It does take on more “taste” as it cools a bit so there is that :)

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
4673 tasting notes

Cavocorax sent me this to try since as much as i can admit there are David’s teas out there that are delicious, on average i generally don’t like them as much as other teas. I find them a good entry point to loose leaf tea but that’s about it. However, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying trying them and i love that they will let you walk in to the store and pick up whatever size you want! I wish all companies would do this. seriously.

So this tea? It’s not too shabby. I tried it hot brewed first and i’m sure i’ll do a cold brew just to try it out. it smells like coconut, but doesn’t taste TOOOOO much like coconut – the citrus/pineapple adds something to it. I have a feeling that this would make a good vodka infusion so maybe i’ll try that. Especially if you added some raspberry juice to it? maybe. hmmmmm

thanks cavo! even if it does mean my cupboard goes up since i haven’t been staying on top of my sipdowns this week lesigh

Dinosara

I mean, this tea sounds decent enough, but I keep on reading these reviews and wondering why on earth did they call it Mint Julep!? Juleps are my heritage and I just can’t get behind it.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I thought it tasted like an amaretto sour with mint.

Uniquity

It is essentially the same as Mojito from three years ago. No-one can really explain why they are calling it mint julep – I only wish they hadn’t added coconut this time. I have a sample but am leery of the coconut as I LOVED mojito (actually just finished it off today, heh).

Sil

man if there was no coconut it would be awesome…

Teeeerrrriiii! I want more! gimme! sipdown… boooooooo! it’s hard to believe that this it’s like a cup of chocolate cocoa. mmmmmm

Terri HarpLady

I’ll include some in your next box! It’s the best I can do for now, LOL.

Sil

Haha I appreciate it. Just need to place a tea spot order, but they don’t often have really awesome sales….just sales on things I don’t want lol

Bio

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.
