drank Irish Cream Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
6332 tasting notes

oy..i have some catching up to do and very little desire to do it since i’m tired and just want to go to bed. I had this in the morning, since i’m still trying to get around to having some match every day…or close to it. :) I enjoyed this one, though i’m still thinking about tiramisu. This has a smooth, delicious irish creamy taste to it. My sample is distinctive, but i think it would probably be best as a Robust flavouring. As usual, i had this as a latte. It was the perfect start to my morning. no sweetener necessary for this one, though with a pinch of sugar the taste popped just a little :)

Again, still not much to add about this tea beyond the fact that I am still loving it. No sipdowns today i expect since i’m not really in the mood for tea tonight but i DID receive an awesome package from my dear swedish chef, which means i’m back up in numbers. However, it gives me fun things to try out over the week and on the weekend! haha

Final Count: 158

Since the BBB Box is soon to be on it’s way back to me, I need to get cracking on the teas that were sent to me during the last round. This is one of three teas that Terri included as her offerings.

I forgot to make notes on this one today and it’s from eaaarly this morning. I vaguely remember this been a fairly smooth tasting tea with a slight..fruity note? Not taiwanese black fruity, but there was a hint there. I’ll take better notes next time! i did enjoy it though terri :)

Terri HarpLady

Glad to hear it! I DO need to get my act together & get that box on it’s way to you.

I’m sort of mesmerized by the fact this has -1 comments at this point. Will I nudge it up to 0?

Sil

haha

__Morgana__

How does that even happen?

Anna

…and that’s exactly what happened! Wow. Now there are four actual comments, and the post is labaled as having three comments. SPOOKY.

Anna

“labaled”. Really, Anna? REALLY.

Kittenna

-1 comments? How what huh???? :P I see the discrepancy too.

Kittenna

Also, JEALOUS of the tea. But… I may have some of my own from… someone… gosh I have too much tea.

Sil

Kitenna, check. If not I have extra ican. Share

Kittenna

I thiiiink Roswell Strange gave me some. I’ll check. And if she did, I totally have already drank a cup too, over Christmas while I wasn’t logging.

Anna

Also this is sort of a badass tasting note. ‘Had this cold. Ice cold.

Sil

drank Tiramisu Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
6332 tasting notes

oh man. i did NOT think that i was going to like this as much as i am. I pulled this together as a quick pick me up latte today as part of my “have a matcha latte every day until it’s gone” thing that i’m doing. No sugar needed. I’m using distinctive flavouring and because I want to make sure Cavocorax gets to try this, i only used 1 tsp for 2 cups of milk, when it’s usually 2-3 for 2 cups haha.

Not only does this smell heavenly but it tastes delicious. I actually dislike tiramisu, because of the texture…so i can usually only get through a few bites before i give up. This? i could drink often…. sooo yummy!

Roswell Strange

Sounds awesome! :)

MissB

Wow. So the flavor minus the texture?

Sil

exactly :) there is some of this coming out west for you guys to try

Cavocorax

Awww. Thank you! I can’t wait to try this one!

drank Queen of the Hill by Sloane Tea Company
6332 tasting notes

A pretty average assam – every time i drink it, i can’t help but think of the price people are paying to have this one. It’s Sloane’s most expensive tea (or was at the time) and it’s so very much not worth it. It’s a decent enough tea, but for the price i can think of a ton others that i’d by first. I won’t be restocking this when it’s done but i’ll enjoy drinking it well enough.

another fantastic tea to kick start the morning.,This + maple really is a great time for me. It’s more smokey than i need it to be, but the smoke is flavourful and certainly not over powering. All in all, love having this one from time to time for a little extra smokey oomph!

“another fantastic tea to kick start the morning.” “love having this one”
Only an 82?

teaqueen

I just picked up a box of Russian Caravan myself! I completely agree that it’s a “once and a while” tea, perfect for mornings when you need the extra flavor push!

Sil

Yep. Because a lot is dependant on me being in the mood for it. Higher ranked teas are those that are fantastic and I could drink any and every time :)

OMGsrsly

Now you’re making me crave a smokey tea with maple syrup. :)

Bear With Me

I am somehow really surprised that you, of all people, actually like lapsang. Like, mind blown over here.

but lapsang + maple = godly. so I approve!

Kittenna

I’m not at all surprised, since Sil loves blacks. Also, you are all right. Maple + lapsang = best combo evar.

Sil

This isn’t my favourite smokey tea but it’s a good one :) @ceylon – i still don’t like OMG IN YO FACE smokey teas..but ones that have a smoother sort of interesting smoke, really appeal to me…but i ALWAYS add maple. it’s the only tea always add things too

looseTman

Sil, What are your most favorite morning kick start teas?

Sil

uh..i’d have to look at what i’ve been drinking in the morning, but to be honest if i REALLY need a kick in the pants, i usually grab a puerh and steep it western style :) otherwise my assams are usually what i go for, though i haven’t found my perfect bold cup of that yet…nothing fruity, so i stay away from me taiwanese blacks…

drank Bailin Gongfu Black Tea by Teavivre
6332 tasting notes

Started the morning off with this and another from teavivre, in part because i wanted to make sure i got my sipdowns in today before i had to go out and run errands in in part because i wanted to start the day off with something black and delicious. This fits that perfectly! I’ve had this one before and really enjoy it. I haven’t restocked it into my cupboard except as samples though, because i’m trying to get my cupboard under control. it’s always nice to revisit it though as it’s always a tasty cup.

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.
