sipdown!(179) this was one of the samples that Kallieboo! sent my way in our international christmas card swap. I have had mixed success with darjeelings but this one is wonderful! There’s a fruitiness here along with the muscatel taste. Unlike some darjeelings, there is no astringency or bitterness. I have a little bit left, which i’ll be sending over to terri to try as i think she might like this one as well :) thanks Kallieboo!

Ysaurella

so agree ! I loved this one so much, unfortunately impossible to find in Europe.

Nicole

This seems to be a darjeeling for people who aren’t enamored with darjeelings or have had bad experiences with them in the past. :)

Ysaurella

nice to begin with yes ! but now I found several Darjeelings I really enjoy :) must try Margaret’s hope now

sipdown! (180) my other morning tea while i run around panicked that i’ve forgotten something :) This morning this is malty with an edge to it that i don’t love. I don’t think i’d restock this tea even though it’s not a bad tea. just not one of my favourites. I’m happy to have been able to pick up a few teas from world of tea while in ottawa though and it looks like my dad has found it as well, since he bought be two more for christmas heh

Sipdown! (181) Since i’ll be away from my cupboard for a few days and don’t feel like going through the hassle of packing up a tea basket and such since i’m only bringing a small suitcase, i’m enjoying a few teas today as well as getting in a couple sipdowns. I fulle expect tea to show up while i’m away so i need to make sure not coming home to 200+ teas. At least i still have 3 weeks to get to 150. :)

I added a slice of orange to this one today since lala’s done that on a few occasions and i thought it would be fun to experiment with my last cup. It’s adding just a bit of sweetness, along with the orange to this cup and turning it into something entirely different and yet just as deliciously good! Maybe i’ll try a few others like that today heh…maybe.

Terri HarpLady

That’s one of the experiments I’ve been wanting to try for awhile :)

Sil

yeah same here. We have an orange that needs to be eaten so i’m steeping it, drinking the tea then eating the slice haha warm orange slice heh

Terri HarpLady

I bought an orange a few weeks back, specifically for this experiment, & somebody ate it, heh

TheTeaFairy

Unfortunately, I’ll have to take a rain check on the orange experimentation, but at least I can now add this comment: yeah, this tea is awesome!! Haha!

cup of this while finishing up the first season of fringe. I’d totally forgotten about the crazy guy who believes he’s spock. So good. lol. Packed for tomorrow and checked in for my flight so now i just have to sleep, get up and eat, drink some tea and then head to the airport. Going to be a nice relaxing sunday!

TheTeaFairy

Ok, the last thing I need is a new series to watch! Fringe is on my list though. I was told it was like the modern x-files. I do miss scully and mulder’s chemistry!

Sil

It’s different from X-files, which i watched and loved back in the day. The interaction between walter, his son, olivia etc is just as good, though different :) now that it’s over, i’m working my way through all 5 seasons, since at the time of airing i stopped after season 2 so that i would have something to buy and watch when it ended lol

TheTeaFairy

Ah, Netflix solved that problem for me…

This will be gone tomorrow. It will be a sad, sad day. However that means the next sale will be one i can..pounce on haha sorry. again, still enjoying this tea!

TheTeaFairy

Tomorrow morning, Sil, I will know the mystic power of this tea…

TheTeaFairy

And sorry you ran out because of me :-(

__Morgana__

Gotta love that Damn Fine Tea!

Sil

teafairy – hardly your fault! i am choosing to enjoy it and drink it rather than hording it! :) I love sharing with folks

Terri HarpLady

Sharing is such fun!

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
6160 tasting notes

semi sipdown! finished up my bag from august this morning so now i just have the ounce left from my december order :) I might have to pick up a few more ounces if i make a verdant order this month, just to keep a decent sized stock of this in the house :) Such a good cup to wake up with in the morning!

Terri HarpLady

This is one I hate to run out of! You know me, the tea hoarder. I really need to open a tearoom

Sil

heh for me it’s LB. I don’t like a lot of yunnans, but this one is good. given a coin toss it’d go to LB though heh

drank Peppermint Patty by Butiki Teas
6160 tasting notes

Trying this tonight as a latte to see how it holds up. I keep forgetting i have 4oz of this one in my cupboard because i locked it away in a tin! I have to say that i just love this tea either way. Straight, steeped as a latte! it’s delicious!

MissB

Ooh, good idea. Had it just straight a few hours back, and it’s just so.. yum!

TheTeaFairy

That a whole lot of patties!

OMGsrsly

4oz! That is a testament to the awesomeness of this tea. I need to add it to my next order.

Sil

I love mint chocolate, but I get tired of the black base. This is a creamier version or something…and it’s economical haha

Terri HarpLady

I should probably give this one another chance. I only tried a sample, & I remember it being nice enough, plus I need to really cut the evening caffeine & I’m running low on that pumpkin ginger chai

Sil

remind me and i can send some your way next BBB Box….man i hope that doesn’t go missing…

Terri HarpLady

How long ago did you mail it?

drank Candycane Licorice by Herbal Infusions
6160 tasting notes

sipdown! (181) I was hoping to get to 180 tonight since i HAD time to actually drink tea tonight, but i think that i’ll end just shy of that goal unless i can find another herbal that’s close to being finished. I like this one, and it was quite the contrast to the spicy of the fireside. Of course that also meant that the “sweet” of the licorice was intensified lol. Still though, a neat blend to have tried, though not a restock! thanks again dexter!

TheTeaFairy

I envy your sipdowns super powers!

Sil

helps having little amounts of swaps from ppl :)

sipdownd of this one. Second cup around there’s a flavour in here i do not like. I can handle the spicy heat of this, but there’s an almost soapy? floral? flavour in the background that i’m not happy with. That being said, this makes me want to go dig sichuan caravan out of the cupboard and have that for the other sort of spicy ginger love it flavour. Thanks for sharing this dexter!

Cavocorax

This is listed as a black chia, but it’s a rooibos, isn’t it? It’s gotta be. Unless I’m crazy.

Sil

Rooibos as far as I’m concerned :)

Terri HarpLady

Mmm….Sichuan caravan…

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.
